They dream, apparently, without God to solve the terrible problems of mankind. Like small children: if I grow up big and become a doctor, I will cure everyone, everyone!)

Why? Answer in the Book of Books:

3 If our gospel is closed, it is closed for those who perish,
4 for unbelievers, whose minds were blinded by the god of this world so that the light of the gospel would not shine for them about the glory of Christ, who is the image of the invisible God.
(2 Corinthians 4: 3,4)

"..the god of this age has blinded the minds!" Here's the answer why.

I'm not sure there are “more and more” such people, but of course there are. Why are they there? Because people need to believe in something, there are tasks that can be solved by faith, and transhumanism is a stylish, fashionable, youthful solution to these tasks. Maybe not all tasks can be solved through him, for example, it is difficult for me to imagine the morality arising from transhumanism, but it can give meaning, hope and a community of like-minded people no worse than others.
