Well, we now know that it is happening. Science has been genetically modifying plants and cloning animals, but now it has being openly admitted that even human beings are being genetically modified from conception (see link).
It has been admitted that thirty human babies have been conceived using genetic modification. Indeed, as you will see in the article, it is confirmed by DNA testing that some children are being manufactured with the genes from at least three “parents.” This program, which sounds like it could be a theme of a Sci-Fi horror movie, is being conducted in New Jersey.
Critics are horrified at this program which is termed “tinkering with the very make-up of our species” and that “this method could be used to create new races of humans with extra, desired characteristics…” One professor is cited as saying “It is a further and very worrying step down the wrong road for humanity,” and that it is now possible to “clone children.”
This has a strong biblical application. Jesus Christ prophesied in Matthew 24:37 that the latter-day society on earth just prior to his Second Coming would mirror the pre-Flood world of Noah. The non-canonical book of Jasher has extensive information about the pre-Flood world of Noah and Jasher 4:18 states that pre-Flood mankind had discovered the “mixture of animals of one species with another, in order therewith to provoke the Lord…” If tampering with the animals’ genetics provokes the Lord, tampering with human genetics is a far greater act of mankind altering God’s creation of the species he made during Genesis Week.
Obviously, in order to mix the animal species’ DNA to manufacture new chimera species, the pre-Flood scientists had to have the same technologies that modern scientists have to map the genomes of various species and mix them in a laboratory. While the book of Jasher is not in the Bible’s canon, it is favorably cited in the Bible in both Joshua 10:13 and II Samuel 1:18 as a book regarded as canonical during Old Testament times. I’ve read the book and find it rings true up to the time of its accounts of the life of Moses. From then on, there are sections of the book of Jasher as we have it today that contain obvious errors and later additions as well as some very odd material, which indicates it was excluded from the canon as the book of Jasher is not now the same as the book of Jasher as it existed in biblical times.
Now that both animal and human DNA experimentation is being done in labs, what is now being done in secret labs and projects that are not known to the public? Are experiments being done to create animal-human hybrids? How about adding bear or lion DNA to a new race of warriors for national armies? How about adding the hibernation DNA from animals to human astronauts to allow them to sleep through deep-space missions? I can recall a column by Dr. Bernadine Healy in US News and World Report magazine many years ago wherein she wrote that NASA was considering that last alternative even many years ago. I couldn’t find that link in a websearch, but it is filed away in my paper files somewhere.
The Bible is being proven true once again. The prophecy of Jesus Christ in Matthew 24:37 is coming to pass…again. If you want to learn more about the biblical prophecies which confirm that we are living in the biblical latter days, I invite you to read my article, Are We Living in the Biblical Latter Days? If you want know more about how high-tech the pre-Flood world of Noah really was, I invite you to listen to my audio message, As It Was in the Days of Noah.
