Genetically Modified World
Does our DNA compel us to seek a higher power? Believe it or not, some scientists say yes.
On Aug 4, 2016, in an Iranian news article, ‘Disclosure of Unmanly Virus War by Pentagon and Al Saud against Muslim World.’ Nader Talebzadeh and Prof. Ali Karami, two Iranian activists go into detail about a bioterrorism attack carried out by the US Pentagon.
Talebzadeh stated: “According to my findings, the virus known as Funvax is a microorganism developed by Pentagon. It has been added to the Zamzam Well in Mecca where Muslim pilgrims drink water. The virus is believed to negatively influence the brain, causing a decline in religious faith and lack of desire for worship among Muslim people”.
I’m not saying this actually happened, but what I am saying is, it’s a possibility. As explained by Pentagon researchers, the vaccine uses an airborne virus to indiscriminately infect populaces deemed high risk for religious fundamentalism. The virus in this vaccine allegedly has been tested and shown to reduce fundamentalism and religiosity in all who are infected, by damaging what is called the "God gene." You may think this sounds like some radical conspiracy theory, the four-minute Pentagon video presentation and official FunVax report, show that this vaccine against fundamentalism is actively being tested for operation.
“Spider silk is biocompatible, isn’t rejected by the human body and can be treated with antibacterial compounds for use as a coating for surgical steel instruments, implants and catheters,” Lewis says. “With its strength and elasticity, it also holds great promise for use as artificial tendons, ligaments, skin and bone.” ~Professor Randy Lewis
Dragline silk holds promise as the leading biomaterial of the future. The combination of strength and elasticity makes spider silk stronger than steal and tougher than Kevlar. Scientist are now producing spider silk for applications such as, impact-resistant vehicle parts, lighter and stronger body armor and. When scientist first tried to make spider silk they used spider farms, but the spiders were cannibals and killed each other off.
Professor Randy Lewis has successfully isolated the spider gene that creates spider silk and spliced it into goats. A spider goat is 1 in 70000th spider and the only difference is that they produce silk protein in their milk. One goat can produce up to 12 grams a day. This is 40,000 times the amount a spider will produce in a lifetime. Scientist haven’t perfected the method of creating this silk as it’s still only one tenth the strength of a spiders dragline.
Project MKUltra or the ‘CIA's mind control program’ is a program of experiments on human subjects, at times illegal, designed and commenced by the United States Central Intelligence Agency. With the intention of identifying and develop drugs to be used in interrogations, torture and mind control, experiments were conducted on most times, unwilling test subjects. Many of the scientists were Nazi’s from Germany brought to the US through a program called Project Paperclip. MKUltra began in the early 1950s and halted in 1973.
Mind Control Soldiers
DARPAs Brain Machine Interface program unveiled the Robo Rat In 2008. Government scientist discovered that with electrodes planted directly into the brain of rats movements could be commanded. At the push of a button a flood of dopamine was released into the rats pleasure center in the brain, causing it to eagerly follow any command, turning it into an organic robot. The main stated goal of this research is to produce super soldiers.
Since 2008 they have moved to using more complex animals such as chimps and one research program at DARPA explicitly set out to control the human emotions of mentally ill people. There’s reason to be concerned that this may lead to the remote control of human beings in warfare. On May 11, 2016, at the Pentagon, DARPA demoed the first mind controlled robotic arm using "true man/machine interface."
Would you use genetic engineering on your child to make them more intelligent or better looking?
3 Parent Babies
Scientists have discovered a new gene-swapping technique called spindle nuclear transfer to create embryos with healthy mitochondria. Basically it prevents babies from inheriting diseases. It’s is a step towards healthier humans and quite possibly designer babies. On April 16, 2016 a baby was born in Mexico using the DNA of 3 different parents. The mother carries a jean for Leigh syndrome, a disorder that affects the nervous system. She tried to have two babies in the past, but both died of disease. The mother found an alternative option, genetic engineering research and searched for a doctor that would help her.
In short, the doctor removed the nuclear DNA from the mothers’ eggs and inserted it into a donor egg. The egg was then fertilized by the fathers’ semen. The procedure isn’t legal in the US, so it had to be done in Mexico.
Previously the FDA banned the procedure after attempts in the 90s led to two fetuses lacking x chromosome’s and developing genetic disorders. In the UK a similar technique was approved and results in babies with only 0.1% of their DNA from the second woman. The UK has become the first and still the only country that has approved laws to allow the creation of 3 parent babies. According to the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority in the UK Scientists investigating miscarriage are able to implant embryos and study them for up to two weeks.
We all know Dolly, the first recorded clone, a sheep born in 1996. Since then scientist have cloned rats, monkeys, rabbits and much more. The first cloned dog in the world was an Afghan hound named Snuppy in 2005 and in the same year, scientists in Italy unveiled the first cloned champion racehorse.
In Tiajin China, Boyalife Group and its partners are building a giant cloning factory that will aim for a production of one million cloned cows a year by 2020. The Tianjin facility will house approximately five million cell samples frozen in liquid nitrogen and the gene bank will catalogue the world's endangered species for future regeneration, as a biodiversity safeguard. The UN's Food and Agriculture Organization has yet to review the issue. Boyalife's South Korean partner Sooam is working on bringing the woolly mammoth back from extinction by cloning well preserved in cells found in the Siberian permafrost.
When the first test tube babies were grown in the 70s people feared the lab grown child, but today 350,000 babies are grown using assisted technology each year and that number is rapidly growing with new innovations in IVF ‘in vitro fertilization.’
It may be illegal in over 70 countries but that hasn’t stopped scientist from claiming to have cloned humans. The first recorded human embryo clone was created in 2013 using the same technique that was used to create Dolly. This proved that human cloning is possible. Does human cloning already exist? Maybe because scientific cloning is such a contentious subject, scientist don’t want to reveal its already happening.
"Contrary to what you may hear in media reports, GMOs aren’t about solving nutrition problems or feeding the world. They are about profits, and ultimately, corporate control of our food system." ~Food and Water Watch
"We need long-term safety tests that are relevant to human health done by people independent of GM vested interests. The safety testing done now is woefully inadequate." ~Judy Carman, Institute of Health and Environmental Research, Australia
Do you believe altering the genetic code of foods is an ethical issue?
A GMO, genetically modified organism, is an organism that has had its DNA modified in some way through genetic engineering. In the U.S. and Canadian the governments have approved GMOs based on studies conducted by the same conglomerates that create them.
The Biotechnology companies that make GMOs have the power to sue farmers whose fields are contaminated with GMOs because these companies have been able to obtain patents with which to restrict their use. Even when it is the result of inevitable drift from neighboring field’s farmers are sued and in most cases lose their farms.
Most all GMOs grown worldwide are engineered for herbicide tolerance. This causes, use of toxic herbicides like Roundup and do to these sprays GM crops are responsible for the emergence of herbicide resistant “super weeds” and “super bugs,” which can only be killed with more toxic poisons. GMOs are developed and sold by the world’s biggest chemical companies.
Scientist’s are increasing the productivity of tobacco plants by as much as 20 percent using genetic engineering techniques to alter photosynthesis. Scientists plan to try the same alterations in food crops, and some researchers believe they will achieve production gains of 50 percent or more. This could cause a transformation of global agriculture but some groups oppose it, arguing that researchers are playing God.
Genetically modified food doesn’t stop with plants. The FDA approved genetically modified meat for the first time in 2015. GM salmon eggs will be produced in Canada and farmed in tanks inside of specialized warehouses in Panama. The process oc raising fish will take about a year and a half and the salmon should be in stores next year. The salmon will not need to be labeled as a GM product in stores as FDA policies only consider genetically modified crops.
In 2011 scientists introduced human genes into 300 dairy cows to produce milk with the same properties as human breast milk. This milk could be given to babies as an alternative to human breast milk and formula. Researchers hope these genetically modified dairy products will be sold in supermarkets within the next few years.
