Frank Tipler, before he became a convinced Christian, has proposed exactly this "resurrection" as a a computer process, in the far future, and basically faced this ostracism, and still does, by his physicist chums.

That's overstated. He still gets his papers posted on arXiv.org.


Does not arXiv.org published all papers by people working in some academical 
institution?

As I understand it, that means you don't need an endorsement.  But the stated 
policy is:

"Material submitted to arXiv is expected to be of interest, relevance, and value to those disciplines. arXiv reserves the right to reject or reclassify any submission. Submissions are reviewed by expert moderators to verify that they are topical and refereeable scientific contributions that follow accepted standards of scholarly communication (as exemplified by conventional journal articles)."

My point is that Tipler still gets his scientific work read and taken seriously.


But you are right, Tipler is not so much ostracized than ridicule, by its too much naive defense of christianity. But his book on immortality is still interesting, despite that naivety in theology.

It's full of wishdom. :-)
