Right now we face the potential of nuclear war between India and Pakistan, but how did we get here?This generation has been able to see three advancements in science. They are:
With the industrial revolution we have created thousands of gadgets, but there is a price to pay - chemical contamination.
The second advancement in science is nuclear power. Nuclear power has enabled us to better diagnose patients by injecting them with radioisotopes used to monitor their bodies. Nuclear power is also used to give us electricity, but the same power is able to blast whole cities. A major negative effect of nuclear power is radioactive contamination.
The third advancement in science is genetic engineering. We are now "creating" new species that never existed before.
The pollution from these "advancements" in science are:
Scientists are using genetic engineering (transgenics) to create mixed species.Using techniques similar to those used to produce Dolly the sheep, scientists at Nexia Biotechnologies in Quebec have genetically engineered goats with spider genes. Now Nexia will produce unlimited quantities of spider silk (BioSteel®) in goat's milk.
Another company using transgenics, PPL Therapeutics, the British firm that cloned Dolly the sheep, has inserted the DNA of a Danish woman into thousands of New Zealand sheep without her knowledge. The DNA came from a blood sample the woman gave in a clinic in the 1980's. She was never told what her DNA has been used for.
PPL Therapeutics will make profits from a protein in the genetically modified sheep's milk. The protein produced in these genetically engineered sheep will be used therapeutically to help patients with cystic fibrosis.
In New Zealand, another scientist from PPL, David Wells has set up a 'clone' farm where human genes are inserted into cloned Friesian heifers. Each heifer will produce milk containing a synthetic form of the human MBP gene which enables the human body to produce the protein myelin. Myelin is absent from damaged nerves in patients with multiple sclerosis, so PPL hopes to market this artificial myelin produced in the transgenic heifers.
Now, what exactly is "transgenics?"
According to Autar Mattoo, head of the ARS Vegetable Laboratory in Beltsville, Maryland: "In the transgenic approach, we find a particular gene that controls the trait we're interested in, like early ripening or prolonged shelf life," he says. "Then, using molecular tools, we reengineer the gene, confirm it's what we want, and introduce it into a plant [or animal] so it becomes part of that plant's [or animal's] genome." The organism will be altered from then on, capable of passing the new trait to its progeny.
Most marketed transgenic products are food, seeds or therapeutic substances developed by a few transnational corporations led by the USA's Monsanto or Switzerland's Novartis.The problem with transgenic species is - it is impossible to isolate them. Therefore, their altered genes will mix with normal species.
Unintended releases of transgenic fish into rivers, lakes and oceans will be inevitable as hundreds of thousands of conventional farmed fish escape every year into waterways.
In a contamination incident two years ago, similar to what can happen
fish, the mixing of StarLink engineered corn into the food supply
caused Taco Bell to lose $60 million in sales and Kraft Foods to recall
over 25 million contaminated taco shells. The problem was that this
transgenic corn causes food allergies, and has not yet been approved for human
consumption, although it is used in animal feed.
In the book of Genesis God says:
As stated in the New Testament:
These are some examples of mythological monsters:Centaur
Griffin also Griffon or Gryphon
Chimera also Chimaera
A fire-breathing monster usually represented as a composite of a lion, goat, and serpent.
In ancient times we created monsters. Now "scientists" are playing God, genetically engineering modern chimeras.
Transgenics lead down a path that poses many philosophical questions. Just what percentage of human genes make an animal a human, and what percentage of animal genes turn a human into an animal?
As George Orwell stated in his
book, Animal Farm:
God will intervene to stop the experiments. Otherwise, it would again be like in Noah's time when "all flesh had corrupted their way upon the earth." There would be no flesh left untouched by these transgenic experiments.
God has no choice but to intervene as He did in the days of Noah.
In the time of Noah He destroyed the world with water
2 Peter 3:6
But this time He will destroy it with fire.
2 Peter 3:10
