Revelation 13:14 And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live. (15) And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
Tampering with the integrity of man is a KEY sign of the God’s judgment. God will put a stop to this any time soon. It appears from Revelation 13:15 that man will succeed in creating a transhuman, which the Bible calls “The Image of the Beast.” What I am posting is NOT science fiction.
From charting the advancement toward a transhuman being, it is possible to get an idea how close man is to God’s judgment. God must stop the creation of transhumans because these creatures are not created in His image and likeness; therefore, they cannot be redeemed through the gospel of Jesus Christ.
In his rush to turn everything we’ve ever believed in or lived under, as far as moral, ethical, spiritual or physical laws, upside down before he leaves office, once again new regulations have come down from on high in the Obama administration. It has been noted that his goal is to so thoroughly transform every bureaucratic agency that there is no going back, no matter who is elected after him.
If that is in fact the goal, then the announcement by the National Institute of Health lifting the ban on the creation and funding of chimeras fits the bill for fulfillment. Once these hybrid creatures exist and experiments are underway, there will be no turning back the clock. It’s not enough that the ban on creating beings which are part human/part animal is being done away with; what’s even worse is that the experiments to create them will be funded by taxpayers and if Hillary gets elected she will continue this experiments under Obama’s advices.
Naturally the press is falling in line by noting that there could be great medical cures which might arise from this tampering with creation. But does anyone mention the ethical or moral concerns involved in creating beings which may have human intelligence and thought processes, yet be trapped inside freakish, part-animal bodies? Have empathy and compassion become lost characteristics to those who promote this “science?”
There are many good reasons to prohibit this practice. We don’t know what we’ll unleash even by growing human organs inside animals which aren’t fully animals any longer. For instance, there has been talk about people who receive transplants from other humans suddenly having feelings and memories associated with the organ donor. What will be the result of this mixing of humans with animals? DNA isn’t specifically limited to a single cell; part of the identity of the overall host is carried in every cell of the body.
God drew lines around species and forbid the mixing of them for good reasons. One of those reasons surely was the suffering of the beings created through such tampering. Another was the effects that will be unleashed which we’re not able to foresee. Obama’s legacy may well be that he unleashed Genetic Armageddon on us all – while requiring us to fund it.
Genesis 1:25 And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
Chimera/ Genetic Armageddon
It’s always the same excuse – someday we might cure diseases or solve health problems by altering creation. But this goes a step beyond inserting a single gene for a specific purpose. This involves our government funding the creation of chimeric embryos – meaning beings part human/part animal in their very essence, from their inception/conception.
Obama greenlights human-animal hybrid monsters
“A plan to mix human stem cells with animal embryos to create chimeras – those creatures that have part animal and part human elements – soon will be getting taxpayer funding, under a new proposal from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
The federal agency said Thursday that it is requesting public comment on its plans to open the door to public funding of the concept that could result in “animal models with human tissues or organs for studying human development, disease pathology, and eventually organ transplantation.”
The National Institutes of Health had announced a moratorium on the funding last year, but the change now is being proposed due to the interest in mixing human and non-human cells, and seeing the results.
National Public Radio said there have been concerns over the potential work.
“One issue is that scientists might inadvertently create animals that have partly human brains, endowing them with some semblance of human consciousness or human thinking abilities. Another is that they could develop into animals with human sperm and eggs and breed, producing human embryos or fetuses inside animals or hybrid creatures,” the report said.
But NPR said scientists argue they could prevent those outcomes…
Christian author and filmmaker Tom Horn has warned scientists are redefining what it means to be human, with the goal of “transcending” humanity.
“Right here in North Carolina at your university, they have what is called a transgenic lab, which means they have mice that have human genetic material, for testing to see if the human parts in that animal are responding,” he told TV host Sid Roth in an interview at the time.
Using the CRISPR gene-editing technique, one university lab cured cancer in a group of rats, but the rats started aging quickly and died at half-life, “and nobody knows why that happened,” Horn said. “There is a danger in playing God because you’re not God and you don’t know.”
“Some suggest that Jesus’ words “As in the days of Noah,” in Matthew 24, is not about the Nephilim, or the abomination or cross breeding between God’s created kinds. However, the more we enter into this age of genetic and biological tampering, the more it becomes difficult to ignore Jesus. NPR reported a story of a professor growing human-animal chimera’s in the wombs of pigs in hopes to produce organs, and other bodily objects to “help humanity.” As the old saying goes, “the road to hell is paved with good intentions.”
“As the biotech revolution accelerates globally, the US could be getting left behind on key technological advances: namely, human genetic modification.
A Congressional ban on human germline modification has “drawn new lines in the sand” on gene editing legislation, argues a paper published today in Science by Harvard law and bioethics professor I. Glenn Cohen and leading biologist Eli Adashi of Brown University. They say that without a course correction, “the United States is ceding its leadership in this arena to other nations.”
Germline gene modification is the act of making heritable changes to early stage human embryos or sex cells that can be passed down to the next generation, and it will be banned in the US. This is different from somatic gene editing, which is editing cells of humans that have already been born.
The ban, added by the House of Representatives as a rider to the fiscal year 2016 budget, could have far-reaching implications if it continues to be annually renewed, according to the authors.
It “undermines ongoing conversations on the possibility of human germline modification” and also affects “ongoing efforts by the FDA [Food and Drug Administration] to review the prevention of mitochondrial DNA diseases,” including some kinds of hearing and vision impairments, among other serious illnesses that tend to develop in young children.
“This latest congressional intervention appears premature… in that the germline modification debate is barely getting underway,” write the authors…
Mitochondrial replacement therapy (MRT), a controversial procedure known colloquially as “three-parent embryos,” is one kind of heritable genetic modification procedure that is included in the ban.
In the UK, which some in the field see as being more liberal than the US in gene editing legislation, MRT was approved by both houses of Parliament last year, following a robust period of investigation, public debate, and multiple rounds of parliamentary review.”
“Apparently clones of the same dead sheep from which Dolly was manufactured are in good health and aging normally. From the LiveScience story:
Four cloned sheep that are genetically identical to Dolly, the first cloned mammal, are still healthy even in old age, a new study found. The four sheep, which were derived from the same batch of cells as Dolly and could be considered her clone “sisters,” have just reached their 9th birthday, which is equivalent to age 70 in human years, researchers who have been studying the sheep said.
A detailed study of these four sheep and nine other cloned sheep that are not related to “the Dollies” found that the animals were healthy. All of the sheep were free from many diseases commonly found in older sheep, such as diabetes and high blood pressure, the study showed.
What does this mean for the future of human cloning?
The cloning technique–known as somatic cell nuclear transfer (SCNT)–can be refined so as to permit the manufacture of normal mammals in such a manner.
Human SCNT has already been done, creating embryos that were developed to the blastocyst stage (the time when stem cells can be derived).
SCNT is one type of cloning. The result is an embryo, that once in existence develops in the same manner as a natural embryo.
At that point, the question isn’t whether to clone but what to do with the embryo that was created.
Some human cloning apologists falsely say that “therapeutic cloning” is different than “reproductive cloning.” That’s not true…
The time to outlaw human cloning is now–meaning all human SCNT, regardless of the use to which the embryo will be put. If we wait until the sector perfects its techniques, it will be too late.
Will we? Not a chance!”
Wanted: ‘Adventurous woman’ to give birth to Neanderthal man – Harvard professor seeks mother for cloned cave baby
While this shows the lengths to which certain scientists are going in attempts to alter creation, it also shows the misplaced belief in evolution which is guiding their efforts.
And assume that Neanderthals actually did exist; how cruel would it be to have one born into this modern world? Is there any thought in this for the creature they’d be bringing to life?
“They’re usually thought of as a brutish, primitive species. So what woman would want to give birth to a Neanderthal baby?
Yet this incredible scenario is the plan of one of the world’s leading geneticists, who is seeking a volunteer to help bring man’s long-extinct close relative back to life.
Professor George Church of Harvard Medical School believes he can reconstruct Neanderthal DNA and resurrect the species which became extinct 33,000 years ago.
His scheme is reminiscent of Jurassic Park but, while in the film dinosaurs were created in a laboratory, Professor Church’s ambitious plan requires a human volunteer.
He said his analysis of Neanderthal genetic code using samples from bones is complete enough to reconstruct their DNA. He said: ‘Now I need an adventurous female human. ‘It depends on a hell of a lot of things, but I think it can be done.’
Professor Church’s plan would begin by artificially creating Neanderthal DNA based on genetic code found in fossil remains. He would put this DNA into stem cells. These would be injected into cells from a human embryo in the early stages of life.
It is thought that the stem cells would steer the development of the hybrid embryo on Neanderthal lines, rather than human ones.
After growing in the lab for a few days, the ‘neo-Neanderthal’ embryo would be implanted in the womb of a surrogate mother – the volunteer. Professor Church, 58, is a pioneer in synthetic biology who helped initiate the Human Genome Project that mapped our DNA.”
Scientists grow mini human brains
“Scientists in Singapore have made a big leap on research on the ‘mini-brain’. These advanced mini versions of the human midbrain will help researchers develop treatments and conduct other studies into Parkinson’s Disease (PD) and aging-related brain diseases.
These mini midbrain versions are three-dimensional miniature tissues that are grown in the laboratory and they have certain properties of specific parts of the human brains. This is the first time that the black pigment neuromelanin has been detected in an organoid model. The study also revealed functionally active dopaminergic neurons.
The human midbrain, which is the information superhighway, controls auditory, eye movements, vision and body movements. It contains special dopaminergic neurons that produce dopamine — which carries out significant roles in executive functions, motor control, motivation, reinforcement, and reward. High levels of dopamine elevate motor activity and impulsive behaviour, whereas low levels of dopamine lead to slowed reactions and disorders like PD, which is characterised by stiffness and difficulties in initiating movements.”
Revelation 14:9-11 … If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.
