Just asking so that I know:
-is this more about technology than spiritual development?
-what kind of hierarchy are you thinking about? A council? One person? Are they/he/she voted in or just chosen or promoted? Are people inside this religion equal, or is there different levels and rankings? How do people achieve higher rankings?
-what are the ideas regarding afterlife and pre-incarnation?
-Are there any deities in this religion?
That is all the questions I have for now.

I had an idea of starting a new religion. I call that religion "The Church of GOD 3000". The premise of my new religion is that in the future man becomes so advanced that 2 things happen:
First we develop the ability of time travel, and second we evolve to a higher state or being that has enhanced brain function, strength, and over all power.
Because of these 2 things, it then becomes possible for man to actually seed himself, as well as assist in the development of man or whatever prevalent mutation in a given dimension to a higher level.
The premise of my religion is to actually establish and run a corporation that oversees, funds, and develops technology that assists in achieving those to aims. Because of this, I believe that a corporate environment serves a better purpose then a typical religion.
I would like to get peoples opinions, and try to answer questions as best to my knowledge inregards to this.

Is there not a spiritual conflict in turning a matter of faith into a business?
What takes precedence? Faith? Or business?
