In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with Elohim, and the Word was Elohim. He was in the beginning with Elohim. All came to be through Him, and without Him not even one came to be that came to be. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
Yohanan (John) 1:1-5 (1)
Yes, YESHUA was the beginning and all were created by Him. But Satan, the prince of this world for a time, his ruling elite and their misguided followers, seem to have a differing opinion on this subject as they think and would have you believe that they can do a better job than the Creator of all, YESHUA. As we can plainly see, Satan’s minions are working overtime on their unholy abominations which they call creation, but in reality are anything other than creation.
We have seen Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs), which are passed off as food and pharmakeia which is passed off as medicine. To make things worse, within our society, we relish the act of aborting countless babies, while we simultaneously embrace the mass production of test-tube babies, and we talk of cloning animals like we say we want a new pet. The new rage is we want to suck the stem cells out of anything we can, to enhance whatever we want, whenever we want. So as unnatural as it is, it’s only natural that these same individuals, who have the same agenda, believe they can create any type of better, soulless, immortal-life they wish.
The transhumanist’s and genetic engineer’s desire is to be Elohim (God), when in reality they are not and never will be anything but practicers of evil witchcraft whose time is running short. These people believe they can create life better than YESHUA; the transhumanists believe they can make man stronger, faster, smarter and immortal. They, these transhumanists and genetic engineers, are psychotically feverish and extremely protective of their false man-made religion, so don’t get in their way, or their self-described illuminated masters will do whatever it takes to silence you. Simply put, transhumanism is demonically unnatural and those who practice this form of witchcraft are taking a big risk. I’m thinking that these witches and their bastardized form of creation will succeed to a point, at least to the point where the names of these sorcerers are blotted completely out of the Lamb’s Book of Life, then both the wizards and their genetically altered or technologically enhanced monsters will be burned with fire when they all take a swim on the burning marl for their ostensibly professed immortal eternity.
Oxford Dictionaries definition of transhumanism is: “The belief or theory that the human race can evolve beyond its current physical and mental limitations, especially by means of science and technology (2).” That definition suspiciously sounds like the transhumanists believe in evolution, but with a little added help from science and technology. Perhaps, if these folks think they have physical limitations, they should workout a bit and stop ingesting pharmakeia, and as far as their mental limitations go, I would suggest they read a book and eat some coconut oil. However, it seems clear that transhumanists believe YESHUA didn’t know what He was doing when all came to be through Him, and that they can do a better job. I beg to differ.
According to Wikipedia, “Transhumanism (abbreviated as H+ or h+) is an international and intellectual movement that aims to transform the human condition by developing and creating widely available sophisticated technologies to greatly enhance human intellectual, physical, and psychological capacities… (3).” Well, I feel better already! But this “international and intellectual movement” of theirs sounds more like a bowel movement than anything else. OK, I believe the world and many of the people on it are nuts, so there’s no surprise there, but maybe we should seek an education that leads us to intellectual pursuits, rather than our desire for our own creation of bigger and better plagues. In this case that would be a genetically altered and/or a technologically enhanced human hybrid. Isn’t that what the SciFi Channel calls a cyborg? Well, let’s hope it works out better than it does in the movies. However, to say that these pocket-protector wearing side-show geeks know how to create better than YEHOVAH-YESHUA, is patently absurd and it’s undoubtedly insane, but that is what they believe and preach.
How many times on this earth have the powers that be, the elite trolls, the ones who believe they are the crème de la crème of the universe, attempted to create a better way? YESHUA is the only Way. It should be blatantly obvious to people by now that when we are told, ‘this is better for you’, we should be reaching for either our Bibles or our holsters, and possibly both. The one thing that the rulers of the United States and their illuminated masters do not know, is what is best for anyone other than themselves; they are the most evil, self-centered, avaricious bunch of perverts the world has to offer. And if I may be so bold, I would like to add: trust them not. If you do trust them, you do it with the full knowledge of your actions, as you have already given your consent to them.
Let’s say you had a heart attack and you went to the hospital and the doctors decided that you needed surgery. When you awoke, you found out the doctors had put a baboon’s heart in you. What would you say? Would you really say, “Ooh, ooh, ooh, thank God I’m alive?” I don’t know, something tells me that I might be tempted to go ape on the doctors, but I guess that’s just me. Personally, I wouldn’t even want one of those fake mechanical hearts put in my chest for fear I would turn into that ‘Dick’ Cheney. Does that mean I begrudge anyone who gets a pacemaker? No, but I’m not talking about a pacemaker to keep someones heart beating regularly. I’m talking about people whose lust for their own pleasure, believe they can do a better job of creation than the Creator, because it’s what they want. I guess they think the clay can make a better pot than the potter can.
Why are the use of steroids, human growth hormone (HGH) and blood doping supposedly against the rules for athletes who play sports at any level, whether it’s college, olympic or pro? If it’s detrimental for some baseball player to use steroids, will it be acceptable for him to be genetically altered or technologically enhanced? Maybe that will be acceptable only for the military and police forces, I guess we’ll have to wait and see what the answer to that question is. If nothing else it seems like a double standard, but I would suggest people don’t need steroids or growth hormones to play sports, or to look better and younger, any more than they need genetic alterations or technological enhancements. Of course, the International Olympic Committee decreed back in 2003-2004 that transgenderism, even when done after puberty, is acceptable after the completion of surgical anatomical changes, legal recognition by the official authorities, verifiable hormone therapy for a certain time prior to competition, a waiting period of two years after the gonadectomy, a confidential case-by-case evaluation and a final determination by their authorities in cases where there is a question to the actual gender of the athlete (4).
The first thing I would like to say is, “What kind of a person would want, or even allow, a prepubescent child to undergo a sex change operation other than Josef Mengele?” That having been said, it certainly appears as though it’s perfectly alright to have a sex change operation, but it isn’t acceptable to take steroids. What is wrong with this picture? Not that I’m in favor of steroid use, but maybe the athletes who take them are attempting to achieve that god-like appearance and maybe they believe taking steroids are the way to becoming a god, as misguided as that is. Why do the powers that be discriminate against them?
What about cosmetic surgery? How many women get boob-jobs these days? Obviously there has to be a reason so many women feel the need to augment their breasts. Perhaps the reason is monetary or maybe something a little more narcissistic is the reason, I don’t know. But don’t get me wrong, I like big boobs as much as the next guy, and it’s like my dad said, “Boy, there are three good kinds: big ones, little ones and the ones in between.” That’s not the sum total of my knowledge on that subject, but I think it would be best if I moved on….
Of course there are face-lifts, nose-jobs, fat sucked out of your ass and injected into your lips. There are even people who have fake horns implanted into their head to give them the demonic appearance for which their heart yearns. That in no way is a complete list, but I think you get the picture. And I would be somewhat disingenuous if I did not say that I am personally guilty of having been tattooed, which is also a violation of the Torah. Are any of the examples I have just given any different than people who try to form their skulls so they look like homo-capensis? No, I don’t think so. But the truth of that matter is, the skulls of homo-sapiens and homo-capensis are different. If you don’t believe that, either go to a museum where you can view these skulls or look at the skulls of the two on the internet and you will notice they are made in a completely different manner and they are two different species (5). All of these examples are a way to make yourself something you weren’t created to be.
The truth is, for some reason people just aren’t happy with the way they’re created and people want to make what they feel are necessary alterations. But to what end? How far is far enough? I suppose that depends on the person, but I have no doubt there are those who feel they will never stop until they become as gods. But shouldn’t we remember that Elohim (God) made us in His image? After all, His image is without blemish; YESHUA is absolutely perfect, that was proved, and that’s a fact.
Does that mean if you lost a leg or an arm that it would be wrong or evil to get one of those newfangled contraptions that allow you to walk and run, or to grasp things? Of course it wouldn’t be. I think it’s wonderful that people work to make devices that allow those who have been injured in a war or an accident to overcome a disabling experience. But I do believe if your desire is to be altered for no other reason than because you want to become the ‘Six Million Dollar Man’ (6), then you are a fool. The agenda is man believes he can create something that is better than before: better, stronger, faster. Have you ever seen someone who was born without arms? These folks can use their legs and their feet in ways which are absolutely amazing. Do you still think YESHUA didn’t know what He was doing when He created those people? What about people who were born blind, but can see better than the rest of us? Or people who can’t hear, but are more perceptive than me or you? Well, I find it hard to believe that YESHUA would have a problem with a doctor who puts an artificial eardrum in someone so they can hear, or an artificial leg on someone so they can walk, but I do think He has a problem with people who believe they can “create” better than He can.
I know at this point you are probably thinking, this guy has just contradicted himself and he’s full of it. Maybe there is a contradiction there, but I think there is a big difference between helping a person to hear with the use of a hearing aid, or the use of an artificial leg, and going out of your way to implant a baboon’s heart into a human being. The exact same thing can be said about genetic manipulation, or technological implants, to make a person super-human. A man who cannot walk isn’t a freak because he uses a wheelchair, just as he’s not a freak because he can’t walk. A man becomes a freak, when his hearts desire is to alter what God gave him for no other reason than to attempt to be more than what the Creator has created. Sex-change operations are a good example of freakish behavior. A man can’t become a woman, because he wasn’t born with a vagina and ovaries, any more than a woman can become a man, because she wasn’t born with a penis and testicles. Go ahead and get that sex-change operation you have been wanting, but don’t think it’s not your own self-desire or some sort of perverted form of hubris you are acting upon. Regardless of what governments, the International Olympic Committee, or some professor says, like it or not, it is sinnful behavior and it is playing God.
Many people seem to think that if they are able to find the ‘fountain of youth’ they will somehow be better off, but is that the truth? These days there are many people who feel the need for anything that can help them to recapture their youth, and the use of human growth hormone (HGH), is one of the synthetic tools they use to further their desire (7). According to WebMD, “Synthetic human growth hormone was developed in 1985 and approved by the FDA for specific uses in children and adults.” OK, let’s assume that the motives of the pharmaceutical industry are altruistically genuine. Perhaps the pharmaceutical industry is concerned with helping people who have Turner’s syndrome, or Prader-Willi syndrome, or perhaps they are concerned with changing the genetic make-up of people who probably wound up with those syndromes as a result of the pharmakeia and/or the genetically modified organisms (GMOs) in the first place, not that there is a difference between the two. These concoctions are the witches brew that is created in the laboratories of these bio-science industries. This is the chemically infused, or genetically altered food the government and their bio-agra producers, backed by the FDA, have been feeding the People for some time now.
But if you look at how this substance, HGH, is abused, it’s hard to believe people aren’t looking for that ‘fountain of youth’. The report went on to say, “But the most common uses for HGH are not FDA-approved. Some people use the hormone, along with other performance-enhancing drugs, such as anabolic steroids, in an attempt to build muscle and improve athletic performance…Because the body’s HGH levels naturally decrease with age, some so-called anti-aging experts have speculated and claimed that HGH products could reverse age-related bodily deterioration.” Clearly, one could easily infer that people are looking to make man better than before: better, stronger, faster. Personally, I believe that many people are afraid to age, just as I believe that many people are afraid to die. Why else would people seek a prescription other than what YESHUA has already prescribed? You are born, you live, then you die, but if you have faith in YEHOVAH and His only begotten Son YESHUA, and believe in Him and follow Him, then you will be granted eternal life with Him. That’s just the way it is, and there is no way to get around that truth. But you will never convince some people that they cannot become immortal without YESHUA, or that they shouldn’t even attempt such a foolish idea.
It’s people’s lack of faith in YESHUA that leads to this type of behavior, desire and thinking, which appear to be exact same ideas as those who seek to alter the genetic make-up of DNA in other people or themselves. Obviously, many people think they know better than YESHUA. So in my opinion, human genetic engineering is another bad idea we should discuss and I believe it’s one of the tools scientists use to become some sort of creator. But what is it they are creating?
One has to wonder if the scientists, these genetic engineers, are really working to identify what horrible maladies affect our health and how to stop those debilitating diseases, or if they are more concerned with creating designer babies as they attempt to realize their dream of creating certain desired traits in humans. Why is it that I’m left with the feeling that this sounds like someone wants to create the master race? I also have to wonder just exactly what type of evil, soulless abominations their master race will be? If that is, in fact, what their agenda really is. I have no doubt that you all remember Dr. Victor Frankenstein and his creature, and I’m sure you also remember what eventually happened.
Well, that was from an enthralling novel titled Frankenstein, by Mary Shelley in 1818. But just exactly what is it that would make any of us think that there aren’t those ‘mad scientists’ out there today who are attempting to do the same thing for real? It does make me wonder if these people believe art imitates life, or if life imitates art? Well, I’ll leave that up to the philosophers like Plato and Socrates, or maybe it should be left to Oscar Wilde. Tell me, who got it right?
In an article titled Genetic Inequality: Human Genetic Engineering by Danielle Simmons Ph.D., the Doctor states with regard to genetic technology, “For instance, ongoing advances make it increasingly likely that scientists will someday be able to genetically engineer humans to possess certain desired traits. Of course, the possibility of human genetic engineering raises numerous ethical and legal questions. Although such questions rarely have clear and definite answers… (8).” Personally, it sounds a lot like grabbing a hornets nest and giving it a good shake just to see what happens. Who is it that decides what desired traits are? Is it the parents, the doctors, or is it the government? It certainly isn’t the baby who hasn’t been born yet. I’m thinking when YESHUA creates life, He is the one who decides what “desired traits” a person will have, but I guess these people whose desire is to usurp our Creator’s desire are the ones who will dictate what is and what isn’t desirable.
There can be no doubt about the unending list of legal questions genetic engineering leaves us with, but what about the moral implications? Who do these people think they are who wish to play creator? All I have to do is look back to the Nazi Josef Mengele, who was only one out of many, and I know these folks are being led straight to hell. Certainly, there are many scientists who truly are concerned with eradicating disease in an attempt to help the so-called human condition, but to think that the ‘powers that be’ don’t have ulterior motives with regard to altering the genetic traits of humans is laughable to say the least. What will people say when a desired trait is white skin? And what if an undesirable trait is slanted eyes? I don’t doubt that masses of people on this earth would go berserk if that came to pass. Yes, the road to hell is paved with good intentions. Just how many times do we have to see this to know that this is indeed a maxim and not a contradiction? Do you really want a master race of soulless, black-eyed, goose-stepping things with incredible strength controlling and hunting you? I know that I don’t.
I know you are saying, “Well, it just isn’t possible for something like that to happen, or that was a thing of the past and it just isn’t going to happen again.” I call BS on that. The same article by Dr. Simmons states, “Tests are continually being developed for traits and behaviors that are not related to disease. Most of these traits and behaviors are inherited as complex conditions, meaning that multiple genes and environmental, behavioral, or nutritional factors may contribute to the phenotype. Currently, available tests include those for eye color, handedness, addictive behavior, “nutritional” background, and athleticism.” Does that mean genetic engineers will be able to create super-soldiers who can withstand extreme cold or heat? How about if they create those same super-soldiers with a predisposition to Nazi-like behavior? And perhaps compared to regular people, they will be far more athletic and will be able to go for a week without eating. Would you really like something like that hunting you down? Unfortunately I’m left with the feeling that what’s happening is nothing other than geneticists are attempting to open Pandora’s Box.
This leads me to my next question. Is cloning a good idea? On July 5, 1996, Dolly the cloned sheep was born in Edinburgh, Scotland. Dolly was “the first mammal to be successfully cloned from an adult cell (9).” Naturally, there was a great deal of speculation concerning the ethics of such a project and what the future of such a so-called breakthrough would be. Dr. Ian Wilmut, an embryologist at the Roslin Institute and lead scientist on the team stated, “It will enable us to study genetic diseases for which there is presently no cure and track down the mechanisms that are involved.” Well, I have to admit that doesn’t sound too nefarious to me, especially because the article made no mention of using the cloning of animals for food and because Dr. Wilmut “described human cloning as both “repugnant” and illegal.” Certainly, many of these folks are attempting to figure out how to help people and I have no doubt their motives are genuine, but the unfortunate possiblility that in the end their work is going to be used for evil, is more likely than not. Name one thing people have created that wasn’t eventually perverted and used in a fashion it wasn’t originally designed for? But isn’t that what a wicked and perverse generation would do?
What I found interesting about the article was, “PPL Therapeutics said, Dolly would help to improve understanding of ageing and genetics and lead to the production of cheaper medicines.” PPL Therapeutics purchased the rights to the research. That statement makes me wonder just exactly what potions they are going to produce and for what purpose they will be used. I have no doubt they will be selling anti-aging pharmaceuticals as well as something to enhance your genetic make-up…but we will see. There can be no doubt that PPL Therapeutics sees an opportunity to make a good profit or else they wouldn’t have bought the rights to the research and we all know any prescription you get from a doctor is quite expensive.
On a little side-note, the article stated, “US President Bill Clinton has set up a special task force to investigate cloning in order to examine the legal and ethical implications.” Now that’s rich! What would Bill Clinton of all people know or care about “the legal and ethical implications” of anything? Personally, I find his statement to be another laughable example of what comes out of his big mouth.
An article in The Guardian stated, “We must await the results…on Dolly in order to assess whether her relatively premature death was in any way connected with the fact that she was a clone (10).” That was a statement from “Professor Richard Gardner, chairman of the Royal Society working group on stem cell research and therapeutic cloning.” Well, I’m sure the Professor has the best intentions at heart, but I’m not convinced using stem cells and therapeutic cloning is such a good idea. But it does make me wonder if this copy, of a copy, of a copy, will decay faster (if that’s the propper term) than a non-clone. And if that is the case, I also have to wonder if our presidents are clones, because they appear to deteriorate at an extremely rapid rate while they are in office! I guess the jury is still out on that one too, but I’m sure we will get that verdict one day in the future.
Even though I’m not in favor of the practice, whether or not people believe it’s a good idea to use cloning as a method of medical research, is not really the point I’m trying to make. The point is, what will this lead to in the future? According to AnimalResearch.Info, “Researchers have managed to transfer human genes that produce useful proteins into sheep and cows, so that they can produce, for instance, the blood clotting agent factor IX to treat haemophilia of alpha-1-antitrypsin to treat cystic fibrosis and other lung conditions…and clone the resulting transgenic animal to build up a breeding stock (11).” While it is true that I am not necessarily against animal research, I don’t like the idea of animals being treated as ‘things’ in a science experiment. Believe it or not, animals are living, breathing souls who are conscious, they just aren’t conscious human souls. That having been said, when a scientist puts human genes into a sheep or a cow, I think they are playing God. Quite frankly, I think it’s an abomination and it basically states just that in Leviticus. However interesting their science may be, I certainly hope their “blood clotting agent factor IX” worked out better than Bayer’s Factor VIII did. Of course the claim was that heat-treated versions of the clotting agent solved the problem with Factor VIII. But how many people were harmed as a result of Bayer’s callous disregard for peoples well-being? Bayer was only interested in the profit margin, not the people.
Well, seeing as how I mentioned the future, I would like to say the future is here. The same article states, “Since 1996…other sheep have been cloned…as have cats, rabbits, horses and donkeys, pigs, goats and cattle…Improvements in the technique…is becoming cheaper and more reliable. This has created a market for commercial services offering to clone pets or elite breeding livestock, but still with a $100,000 price tag.” That suspiciously sounds like a ready-made industry for the super-wealthy who just can’t live without Fifi, and you better believe it’s all about fulfilling our selfish desires and of course, the almighty dollar – the profit at any cost. You would think with all of the homeless pets out there who would like to be adopted, that there wouldn’t be a need for cloning a cat or a dog and the same could be said about children. There are massive numbers of babies who are murdered daily in the U.S. in the unholy name of abortion or women’s rights. I wonder how many test-tube babies are created in laboratories at the same time? Well, that shows you how much I know. But I think the real problem with this is the “elite breeding livestock” that I really don’t want to wind up eating any more than I want to eat hormone and antibiotic injected, GMO fed animals. I don’t remember ever seeing a label in the supermarket that stated, “This Meat Does Not Come From A Clone.” If the so-called food producers in the U.S. don’t have to label GMO’s, then why would they have to label something that was cloned?
I know you’re thinking that I’m nuts, but truth is stranger than fiction. According to a report, “Boyalife Group and its partners are building the giant plant in the northern Chinese port of Tianjin, where it is due to go into production within the next seven months and aims for an output of one million cloned cows a year by 2020 (12).” Why would these folks at Boyalife Group want to clone 1,000,000 cows? The obvious answer is for food and Boyalife Group clearly states, “Remember, this is a food. We want it to be uniform, very consistent, very premium quality.” So it would appear as though there are people out there who believe clones are food. Tell me, where are the long term studies concerning what effects will there be to people who eat these cloned animals? I suppose the same long term studies that were done on GMOs, none at all.
Please don’t get me wrong, I’m not against people attempting to help other people, especially people with hemophilia, cystic fibrosis or any other terrible medical problem or disease, but when people do the opposite of what it clearly states in the Torah, I think there is a problem. But again I have to wonder, do these man-made, cloned creations have a soul or spirit? I’m thinking that if YESHUA didn’t create that life, then He didn’t make a soul or a spirit for that life. I don’t know, maybe, and I do mean just maybe, for a pussycat it may not matter, but that doesn’t mean it’s the right thing to do. However, if you think for one second that there aren’t some scientists or governments out there who wish to make their own better version of humans, I would suggest that you are slightly naïve. In fact, Boyalife Group also states, “The Chinese scientist behind the world’s biggest cloning factory has technology advanced enough to replicate humans…and is only holding off for fear of the public reaction.” Well, I’m sure that statement is a partial truth, because we all know that what happens behind the closed doors of the super-wealthy, their corporations and their government sponsors, isn’t always what we are led to believe.
So, does this all really come down to our values? If that is the case, just exactly whose values will win out in their battle for the transhuman or posthuman dream? Many will unequivocally state that it’s about equality and the desire to put an end to unneeded human suffering. Well, what can I say other than, “Oh my, how wonderful it is that we have begun to care about others who are less fortunate than ourselves.” Will those who are ‘untouchable’ in India be able to benefit, or if the multitudes of starving, subjugated people on the African continent will benefit? We all know that malnutrition is one of the biggest killers on this planet, which we could easily circumvent, but have you noticed that we don’t? Why should we believe any sort of high-priced abominable solution will help these poor people out, much less anyone else? The pharmaceutical empires of this world don’t give a rat’s ass about the poor impoverished people of this earth and they have proved that time and again. The bio-pharma and bio-agra industries are only interested in spreading death to as many people as they can, right after they have emptied the bank accounts of those same people. Well, this dream of becoming transhuman or posthuman doesn’t sound much different, in fact, it sounds more like a damned nightmare than anything else.
A paper by Nick Bostrom Ph.D., titled “Transhumanist Values” appears to be a philosophical look at transhumanism or posthumanism in an attempt to understand and evaluate ‘the opportunities’ for the technological enhancement of humans (13). Dr. Bostram who is obviously a highly intelligent man, discusses both the pros and cons of this science. However, I become slightly unnerved when I hear such terms as “genetic engineering, information technology, molecular nanotechnology and artificial intelligence” with regard to “enhancing the human condition” and “the human organism.” I don’t say that only because of my belief in YEHOVAH-YESHUA, but because I have always been a fan of science fiction. And with regard to science fiction, can we say that genetic engineering is to create the super-human? Or that information technology fuels our desire for a so-called infinite stream of consciousness? Perhaps molecular nanotechnology will create cyborg killing machines as our new task masters, or maybe statues will be created with artificial intelligence as their gods. Yes that does sound like the science fiction we watch on TV or at the movies, but are there those who seek to make that science fact? Which invention was it, that hasn’t been used for evil? And as unfortunate as it is, this science could easily be used for things that many would consider to be way off-limits.
The myriad of “enhancement options” which may be available “include radical extension of human health-span, eradication of disease, elimination of unnecessary suffering, and augmentation of human intellectual, physical, and emotional capacities…the possibility of creating superintelligent machines…that could profoundly alter the human condition.” Again, what can I say other than it sounds like there are those who want science fiction to become science fact. Hell, you can’t trust people as it is, so what is it that would make anyone believe some sort of superhuman genetically altered or technologically enhanced monster wouldn’t be a threat to the human race? I suppose the scientists would have us believe that by augmenting the intellectual and psychological make-up of these neo-humans, any risk from those who become physically superior to the un-altered rest would be offset, while they still acknowledge there remains the risk of error. Personally, I think the normal people of this earth would be viewed as mere insects and parasites; we would be considered inferior to those who are enhanced: superior would become the new normal.
OK, tell me, what do those of the first world do to those of the third world in this day and age? People in the third world are constantly harmed by the first world’s greedy policies and destructive nature, and we all know it. These people are used as lab rats by bio-chem and bio-pharma corporations, slaves by various multi-national chocolate or textile corporations and cannon fodder by government corporations, just to name a few. In other words, the third world is abused by those who are ‘intellectually, financially and technologically superior’. Go ahead and take a good look around the world and tell me that isn’t what you see, because it is. I don’t see how making some sort of super-being assuages anyone’s fears that the same evil we see today won’t continue, just on a grander scale. Playing God just makes it easier for those who have a lust for power to continue to do their business as usual, but they will be able to do it with greater ease.
Of course, Dr. Bostrom’s paper states, “The ambit is not limited to gadgets and medicine, but encompasses also economic, social, institutional designs, cultural development, and psychological skills and techniques.” I’m not sure if that leads us to some sort of existentialist form of humanism or if it’s a quest for Darwinian nihilism, not that it really matters I suppose. While transhumanists do speak of boundries, it does sound like science has no limits whatsoever, unless you would like to call The Outer Limits their limits. Who is it that decides what defines economic and social designs? Would that be the illuminated cultural elite, the United Nations, the superpowers, or will that be left up to the scientists themselves? How about cultural development? We have all seen what happens to the nations of this world who need to be culturally developed. Superior people use that as a euphamism for destroying what lives and culture those inferior people have. But isn’t that the purpose of a one world government? Within the U.S., the Rights of the People and the sovereign States have been usurped by the fiction of federal rights. And what about European nations? We can all see what has happened to sovereign States in Europe within the European Union, they no longer have sovereignty, what they have is subservience to the E.U. central government. I’m not even going to waste my time talking about all that has happened to third world nations. But in the end, this sounds like a method of the few, whose subversive desire and sole wish is to subjugate the many. Am I wrong to not trust those who continually destroy with little or no regard for others? Well, I guess we’ll see, because these people will not be deterred from their attempts at achieving whatever blackness it is that their little hearts desire.
He is the Rock, His work is perfect: for all His ways are judgment: an Elohim of truth and without iniquity, just and right is He. They have corrupted themselves, their spot is not the spot of His children: they are a perverse and crooked generation.
Perhaps I am, as you are probably thinking, against this so-called future development of mankind. But why shouldn’t I be? Dr. Bostrom clearly states the belief and vision of these transhumanists is that they “view human nature as a work-in-progress, a half-baked beginning that we can learn to remold in desirable ways.” I don’t know about you, but there is nobody on this earth or under ‘It’ who will ever convince me that YESHUA’s creation is “half-baked,” or that man can “remold” anything into something more desirable than what He, YESHUA, created for us, and that includes us, His human creation. Of course, the transhumanist belief lays in their science and in their religion, which is evolution. Be assured that it’s not the belief in YEHOVAH-YESHUA. “Current humanity need not be the endpoint of evolution…we shall eventually manage to become posthuman, beings with vastly greater capacities than present human beings have.” What was it that Satan said to Eve in the Garden? You shall be as gods. That’s right, there’s nothing new under the sun. This is the same age-old lie that has been repeated for 6,000 years and it was a crock when the Adversary first said it in Eden and it’s still a crock in the sewer that we have created and live in today. I should also mention evolutionists have clearly stated that between species it is survival of the fittest. So, go right ahead and “create” your new species and when it kills you, it will only be the fulfillment of evolutions (un)natural law.
And yes, you guessed it, one of the “basic conditions for realizing the transhumanist project” is “global security.” If that doesn’t make you feel just a little cozy, I would suggest you don’t know what has been happening on this planet for some time now. The powers that be continually pound out their message of we need more security and we need it on a global level, preferably ruled from a central point. How many times has that actually worked out? What those assholes want is security for themselves, not for me or you. And if you don’t believe what I just said, take a look at history, because history has proved that they, the powers that be, will kill you or imprison you to prove just that. Now to me, that sounds like survival of the fittest by the most unfit of them all.
I have no doubt there are plenty of scientists out there who have ethics, but what about those who don’t? Do you remember the movie “The Boys From Brazil” and what it was about? Granted, that was a movie, just as Frankenstein was a novel, but why should people believe there aren’t other Dr. Mengele’s or Dr. Frankenstein’s out there today who have no ethics; whose standards are immorality? We all know that money can buy almost anything on this planet and I would suggest that those whose wish is to make themselves some sort of tranny or subhuman immortal god, are the ones with the deepest pockets. How will these ethical scientists, and governments (if there are any), stop the perverse undertakings of those whose gods are Satan, power, riches and themselves? Happily doing the research work for those without a conscience may not be such a good idea.
It’s slightly comical how for years scientists embraced the term junk DNA. The scientists didn’t know what that DNA was for so they labeled it as “junk,” but as it turns out, it’s not junk at all. In fact, scientists have been discovering that more than just 3% of our DNA has a function, perhaps 8 or 9% is functional. Computational biologist Ewan Birney stated in a report in the Scientific American, “…that 9 percent can’t be the whole story. The most aggressive view of the amount we’ve sampled is 50 percent. So certainly it’s going to go above 9 percent, and one could easily argue for something like 20 percent. That’s not an unfeasible number (14).” While I have no doubt that Mr. Birney is very intelligent, I would suggest that 100% of our DNA has a function. Just because scientists don’t know something, doesn’t mean their latest conclusions are the end-all of reasoning. What would make anyone believe YESHUA just threw in extra junk into our DNA for no reason at all, with no function at all? Well, to be fair, Mr. Birney did state, “I get this strong feeling that previously I was ignorant of my own ignorance, and now I understand my ignorance.” Maybe Mr. Birney is beginning to grasp how much he doesn’t know, just as we all should, but I am thinking this gentleman might be looking for his answers in the wrong place. I would offer that YESHUA is the One he should be speaking to, because He is our Teacher, not to mention He made the DNA. Surely, someone with such an intellect who seeks truthful answers should attempt to look where those answers can and surely will be found.
I know that even saying human cloning is possible or that human clones exist sounds crazy, but it might not be as crazy as you think. A 2009 article stated, “A controversial doctor has claimed to have cloned human embryos and transferred them to four women prepared to give birth to the cloned babies (15).” As it turned out, none of the women became pregnant, but that was around seven years ago. Do you think Dr. Zavos and others with the same dream have stopped working to achieve their goal? I seriously doubt that’s the case. Well, maybe a majority of scientists believe this uncharted territory is verboten, but what laws are there in the U.S., or in the western world in general, that emphatically state this is a taboo which is so forbidden that we dare not touch it or else? Certainly, if our Elohim’s Law – the Torah – is of no concern to some men, then no man-made law is going to stop those same men either. For the powerful individuals who always crave more, and have the wealth and the determination to realize their dream of being as a god, how difficult will it be for them to find somewhere in the Middle East or Asia to fulfill their desires and satisfy their lust for imortality where no such restrictions exist? Dr. Zavos went on to say, “There is absolutely no doubt about it, and I may not be the one that does it, but the cloned child is coming. There is absolutely no way that it will not happen.” So at least Dr. Zavos believes we will be seeing a cloned child at some point in the future. Should we doubt the voracity of the doctor’s claims?
Naturally, the most horrifying part of the article was about a little girl who died, and as you have already guessed, “He [Dr. Zavos] froze some of her blood cells after her death in August 2002, and combined them with cow eggs to create a human-animal hybrid embryo.” The hopes of these people is that one day a clone of the little girl will be born. Have you ever read Pet Sematary? Well, one day maybe an adorable little clone will be born, but will YESHUA have made a spirit for it? Apparently the mother of the child believes her daughter will live again through a clone, and Dr. Zavos believes his position is to give the dead girl “biological presence in this world continuation.” Call this whatever you will, but the undeniable fact is that this is playing God. YEHOVAH-YESHUA is the Creator and it is Him that should decide who has or doesn’t have a “biological presence in this world.” Period.
National Public Radio reported in 2015 that Chinese scientists had taken human embryos and edited the DNA. Well, while the Chinese were strutting around like Chauntecleer and crowing about their so-called achievement, others were less taken with their science. Despite the fact that DNA has been manipulated for years by scientists, there is an apparent problem with the Chinese stepping outside of their fictional box. Scientists stated, “It’s long been considered taboo to make changes in the DNA in a human egg, sperm or embryo because those changes could become a permanent part of the human genetic blueprint. One concern is that it would be unsafe: Scientists could make a mistake, which could introduce a new disease that would be passed down for generations (16).” That statement sounds like these scientists don’t know what the hell they are doing, and they know it. Maybe they think their ‘rule book’ will prevent the Dr. Moreau’s of this world from realizing their dream, but I don’t. All these folks are doing is the research that the most unscrupulous of their scientific coven need in order to get them ahead of the game.
The usual suspects show up with regard to ‘what could possibly go wrong’ with the changing DNA scenario, but manipulating it is fine, just don’t edit it…not too many changes, OK? Well, what these scientists call an introduction, I call a creation. What is it the scientists are saying when they say – introduce? The new plague says to the host, “Nice to meet you, now I’m going to kill you.” No shit! New deadly unstoppable diseases could pass down through generations, and that new disease could probably spread to many others as well. Do you remember typhoid Mary? These people, these scientists, have absolutely no idea what is going to come out of the box once it’s opened, but as we can see, many are already lifting the corner of the lid just a bit so they can take a quick peek at their fears. Designer babies are one of their fears, but will their fear keep it from happening?
The article said, “The Chinese researchers say they tried this to try to refine a new technique called CRISPR/ Cas9…because it makes it much easier to edit DNA…So the Chinese scientists tried using CRISPR/Cas9 to fix a gene known as the HBB gene, which causes beta thallasemia.” Assuming the intentions of the scientists was to genuinely help people with the gene that causes beta thallasemia, that still doesn’t address the issue of unintended side effects, like – introduce a new disease. We don’t need any new diseases, we already have enough old ones, and I can point to at least 535 of them right now. I do think it’s nice that the Chinese scientists wanted to help others get rid of diseases, but I prefer their doctors at the pharmacy called Tong Ren Tang. They just give you some herbs and suggest you drink less, but there isn’t any genetic manipulation or alteration going on and they certainly don’t tell you to take pharmakeia.
The article stated, “The work was done on 86 very early embryos that weren’t viable, in order to minimize some of the ethical concerns. Only 71 of the embryos survived, and just 28 were successfully edited. But the process also frequently created unintended mutations in the embryos’ DNA.” It kind of makes you wonder which ethical concerns are worthy of attention and which ones aren’t? So, I guess these guys in China at Sun Yat-sen University have some ethics, but what about the ones who will come along in the future that have none? Say they use viable embryos just to see what would happen and they are able to successfully edit the DNA, but even though it has unintended mutations, they decided to implant it into a womb and that way they could see whatever is born nine months later, then they could study it. That could be a pretty convenient research tool for the scientists: just pop your mutated hybrid embryos into the crisper for 20 minutes and smile, smile, smile. I guess it is like the infomercial said, ‘set it and forget it!’
It seems clear that scientists are getting to the point, if they aren’t already there, where what they are doing seems extremely dangerous. Look at Monsanto’s genetically modified abominations, the GMO crops destroy anything that’s near them, or that eats them. What about CERN? What the hell are they really doing there? Well, I probably don’t want to know, but the graven imagery gives me the creeps and I am sure that somehow their super-collider will help us to run face-first into a big problem some day in the future. So, why not go into this uncharted territory? What’s the worst thing that could possibly happen? We wind up with a race of super-freaks, or some super-bug is created and it culls multitudes, or maybe we’ll find out that those nutty municipalities who had Zombie Apocalypse drills were smarter than we thought. But it would seem as though those who seek radical population control might be in favor of creating a disease which could be used for such purposes. Maybe a new kind of germ warfare; the kind that you just can’t stop would work. Superwealthy pagans and their scientists who think that the principle guideline – numero uno – on the Georgia Guidestones (17) is a good idea, might not have a problem crossing any line, no matter what dangers could possibly exist.
Why is it people can’t see that altering what YEHOVAH-YESHUA created is the same thing that was done in the Garden? Is the answer as simple as some just don’t want to believe in YESHUA? Or is it that they don’t want to see something that will profoundly affect their lives? It’s a certainty that once you truly seek YESHUA’s face, your life will not be the same. One of the other possibilities I see, is that there are those among us whose wish is to be a god, and they won’t allow anybody or anything to stop them. A physicist named Dr. Richard Seed is a good example of a man who won’t allow anybody to stop him from becoming what he considers to be a god (18).
It’s pretty obvious that pop culture has embraced the idea of transhumanism for some time now. How many comic book heroes are some sort of freakish nightmare? Is it unreasonable to think that those who have created such characters as the Incredible Hulk, Spiderman, Iron Man or the X-Men (19) do so in the hopes that life will imitate art? Who knows, maybe their art is an attempt at imitating ancient life, mythological or not. The portrayal of these freaks as god-like isn’t left strictly to Superman in the comics, they gave us Starman and our little ET friend who came to save us. Naturally, they created numerous demonic super-villains too. There’s Alien, Predator and the Borg, but at least we now have friendly as well as unfriendly Terminators. Of course you can also find any type of giant, harpy, or wraith in literature. You may think, ‘yeah-yeah that’s only entertainment’, but it isn’t hard to find a YouTube video of some pretty bad-ass robots moving about who you probably woundn’t want smashing through your front door like a Hollywood Robo-Cop would.
Why is it that we allow those in Hollywood to realize their agenda? They wave their magic wand and etch their twisted programming onto our brains, and we allow it to happen. Mind numbing programs that are demonic in nature are intended to turn the viewer into the zombies they are watching. What good can come out of watching demons, vampires, or witchcraft on a screen constantly? Well, if we watch those shows, we certainly aren’t bringing honor or esteem to our Father YEHOVAH. If anything, what happens is, we open a door so evil can walk through. Proverbs 4:14-15 clearly states, “Enter not into the path of the wicked, and go not in the way of evil men. Avoid it, pass not by it, turn from it, and pass away.” In other words, we were told to eschew evil for our own good.
Don’t kid yourselves into thinking that YESHUA was joking around when He said, “And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man…until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all. Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot…the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from Heaven, and destroyed them all,” Luke 17:26-29. YESHUA was not joking, so please believe what He said. Noah was perfect in his generations, but the rest weren’t. The rest were described as wicked men whose imagination and hearts only thought evil continually. What about the people of Sodom and Gomorrah? They were described as wicked and perverse. What was it that happened to them? I believe what we are witnessing is the end being told to us from the beginning. Maybe we should start listening.
I have no doubt the government’s and scientist’s wish is to lead us into a brave new world and I can only imagine what sort of a modest proposal they will come up with in the very near future.
And YESHUA said unto him, Receive thy sight: thy faith hath saved thee.
