Yeah I can see the kids logic. The majority of conservative and religious cultural groups are driven by their traditions to have a good job, then marriage, and eventually kids. In those cultures obtaining a family is considered a success and fulfillment but it comes at the expense of personal freedom and a lot of stress. People who can live a lot longer will have luxury of putting that of indefinitely if possible

Would religon even be needed if immortality was a reality?

If regeneration was the key to immortality, then there would not be 100 year old people walking around. I would put their appearances at the peak of tissue age: 20?
(Eek! to have hormones for all of reality? would need to work on phasing that out of the genome! and metabolism!).

Can you even begin to imagine a society in which the fear of dying/death, is not an influence on your daily life?

Do have to point out though, that dismemberment may be something that regeneration may have a problem fixing.

Thats a interesting thought. Most religions and various philosophies all have an afterlife component to it. I suppose many of our current society's ethics and morality, rule of law wouldn't be a big issue either.

Also think about the concept of kids. It won't be to have children as a way to take over the role of the family legacy. It will be another person being brought into this reality, and they will now take resources that may be your chance to survive (assuming that we still have to ingest resources to provide energy for the biological machine that we are, even if we can regenerate).

Just thinking about how people will still have sex and not think about the consequences, and children will still be born, and I guess the possiblity of overgrowing the population with no one dying, and resources becoming scarce is a great possiblity. Mmmmm....

Maybe while I am trying to figure out regeneration for humans, I better think of an antidote while I am at it also ;-)
