THE GENETIC ENGINEERING
OF THE COMING RACE
Historian Arnold Toynbee used the phrase “time of troubles” to describe the chaos that accompanies the disintegration of civilizations. The prophet Daniel wrote, “And there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time.” From a historian’s point of view, many agree that we are now living in that “time of troubles.”
We are vulnerable to any number of potential disasters—economic collapse, nuclear war, crime, pollution, toxic wastes, dangerous new technologies, destructive weather patterns, floods, famines; and including the genetic engineering of the coming race.
The Human Fertilization and Embryology Act (HFEA) of 2008, Parliamentary Briefing two, allows the creation of four different types of human-animal hybrid embryos. It is clear that the government’s aim is eventually to allow the creation of GM (Genetically Modified) children.
These embryos are not ninety nine percent human. Until the blastocyst stage the vast majority of the material in the embryo is of animal origin. Gradually the human genes will be turned on at a much later stage. At the early embryo stage is the least appropriate moment to claim that the DNA determines the embryo composition and species identity.
This bill permits the creation of GM embryos with genes from any species. GM embryos have received almost no public attention. The ethical and social issues they raise are far more important than the other types. While the other embryos are only for research purposes, the government’s own documents show that allowing GM embryos is in order to all the development of safe technology for creating GM children which it wants to legalize in a few years. In fact the government initially proposed to take the step of allowing GM children through regulations.
The ethical case against HGM rests on three points: HGM is medically unnecessary but if permitted will immediately be used to make designer babies. The market will be genetically enhanced children, just as drugs and surgery are used today. Genetically enhanced children will be another commodity. HGM would soon become the basis for a new eugenics, the genetic engineering of the coming race.
The human genome was mapped in 2003. The world’s first GM babies were born after a series of fertility experiments in the United States. This was revealed on June 29, 2012. The Institute for Reproductive Medicine and Science (IRMS) located in Santa Barnabas, New Jersey conducted the fertility program.
Two of the one year old infants have the genes of three parents, two women and one man. The woman undergoing infertility treatments had a defective gene in her mitochondria. They inserted mitochondria from donor’s eggs into her eggs; and they added the DNA from sperm cells. Two babies were successfully created with the DNA of three parents. Long term effects are yet to be seen.
About six miles outside of Reno, Nevada there is a farm. Jason Chamberlain looks over a flock of fifty sheep. These sheep possess partially human organs such as livers, hearts, and brains. The University of Nevada-Reno researcher is planning to euthanize one of the pregnant sheep. He is anxious to examine the effects of the human cells he had injected into the fetus’ sheep’s brain a few months ago.
The new ethics guidelines of the National Academics issued a report that endorses research that co-mingles human and animal tissue as vital to ensuring that experimental drugs and new tissue replacement therapies are safe for people.
The biological co-mingling of animal and human is now evolving into even more exotic and unsettling mixes of species, evoking the Greek myth of the monstrous chimers that were a combination of lion, goat and serpent.
In the last few years, scientists have created pigs with human blood. They have fused rabbit eggs with human DNA and injected human stem cells to make paralyzed mice walk. A nightmare scenario could arise from the mixing of brain cells. Stanford University endorsed a proposal to create mice with brains made of human brain cells. Stanford law professor Hank Greely who chaired the ethics committee was satisfied that the size and shape of the mouse brain would prevent the human cells from creating any traits of humanity. Just in case if the mice’s behavior begins to display human-like behavior it is to be destroyed.
There is the mixing of human cells with embryos from monkeys and other primates. Professor Stewart Newman of the New York Medical College said, “The boundary is going to push further into larger animals; and that is asking for trouble.”
Professor Newman and anti-biotechnology activist Jeremy Rifkin have been tracking this issue for the last decade. They were behind a creative assault on both interspecies mixing and the government’s policy of patenting individual human genes and other living matter. A few years ago the two applied for a patent for what they called a “humanzee,” a probable creation half human and half chimpanzee. Their application was denied. The Patent and Trademark office ruled the proposed invention was too human. The constitution prohibits against slavery and prevents the patenting of people. Newman and Rifkin were pleased because they never intended to create the creature; and instead wanted to use their application to protest what they see as science and commerce turning people into commodities.
In the New York Times scientists announce cows are being cloned in a new way. January 1998 Genzyme Transgenics created transgenic cattle. They were named George and Charlie. The human genes were spliced with bovine cells. The cattle were cloned to make milk that contains human proteins; such as the blood clotting factor needed by hemophiliacs.
A chimera is a hybrid creature that is part human and part animal, a parahuman. Some examples of human chimeras are rabbit eggs with human cells. This was a successful experiment in 2003 by the Shanghai Second Medical University. Pigs with human blood flowing through them, was successfully completed in 2009 at the Minnesota Mayo Clinic. Mice with human brains are in the experimental stage 2010 at Stanford University.
A cybrid is when an animal egg is fertilized by a human sperm.
There are animal-animal hybrids. This is when the genes of two or more animals are mixed to create another organism. On July 7th, 2008 there washed up on the Montauk, Long Island shore the remains of a hybrid creature that was a mix of three or more animals. It looked like it had a dog’s body. Its head was like a large bird’s head with a beak. There were sharp teeth in its jaw with long protruding canine’s fang teeth. It was naked of fur except for a few wisps near its head. There appears to be the image of a malformed appendage near the top of its head. Its eyes and ears were not developed. It appeared to have a third deformed leg between the two hind legs. It had two legs in front. It had a penis and testicles. There was a tail. The body was hairless. (Image available online).
There are other hybrid creatures that have been discovered similar to the Montauk monster. There is the Beast of Tenby, Wales. February 28th 2013 the Huffington Post covered a story about a hideous carcass that washed up on a beach in Wales. It had a head like a horse, claws like a bear, mostly hairless, and it had sharp canine teeth. Another story about the Brooklyn Bridge monster was news on July 26, 2012. The tide washed up a carcass found under the Brooklyn Bridge, NYC. It was a grisly, and grotesque. It looks like a cross between a pig and a dog. The Seal Beach, California monster story came out on July 26, 2012. The tide deposited a bloated carcass on Seal Beach. It was discovered by a woman walking her dog. The feet were like dogs. Its hands were small. Its fingers were long like a raccoon. The head was like a dog’s head, but the snout and nose were like a raccoons. The tail was like a dog’s tail. It was later buried in the sand on the beach.
There are human-animal hybrids (chimeras). One was found north of Connecticut on Plum Island’s S.W. beach in mid-January in 2010. It was six foot two mutilated male. He was of large build. The corpse was dressed in a short sleeved shirt, boxer shorts and khaki trousers. He was human-like with long spindly fingers. He had five holes drilled into his head.
Plum island research facility is under Homeland Security. It says it is an animal research facility that finds cures for diseases. This facility was founded by the Nazi scientist Eric Traud. He started the lab after world war two. What he did there was to continue his research of biological warfare. There were GM diseases created. Eric Traud’s experiments involved injecting viruses into ticks and releasing them. The ticks would hitch a ride on birds who would return to the mainland. The ticks would infect animals and people.
The federal government lists those diseases in a document form 2005. They are labeled terror agent bio-diseases. These are diseases that can affect humans. Many of these diseases can cross over from animals, insects to humans and infect them.
The terror-agent diseases created by the government are anthrax, lymes disease, bird flu (coronal virus), mad cow disease (holes in brains) desert (valley) fever, tularemia (rabbit fever, rodent fever and deer fly fever), Haunta virus that causes hemorrhaging and kidney failure, foot and mouth disease; and cholera to mention a few. The Depart of Defense patented the strain of Lymes disease (pathogenic mycoplasma). The inventor is Lo, Skyh-ching. The agency is the American Registry of Pathology, Washington, DC. The application number is 71361; and is dated June 6, 1919.
Bio-terror cannot be seen or felt. The carriers of these biological terror agents are people, birds, insects like mosquitos and ticks, and the air or wind.
Our government is doing bio-warfare on Americans. The government could itself be called a domestic terrorist.
