Before we discuss the science behind transhumanism (a “scientific” goal that merely repackages eugenics’ drive to “create a better human”), let’s briefly look at Gen Y.
Simply put, Gen Y children are “millennial babies,” or the grandchildren of baby boomers. Boomer children are often referred to as “Generation X,” so the “Y” babies are those born to the “X” children. Perhaps not coincidentally, X and Ychromosomes determine infant gender, a concept that has become deliberately blurred during the years since World War II. Respectively, XY and XX no longer define male or female. Transgendered individuals, or even those who simply choose to identify with a particular “sex” option, have convinced many schools, workplaces, and even politicians to protect their “choices.” A child born as an XY male may choose to “identify” as a girl—even going so far as to join girls’ basketball teams and shower in the girls’ facility. God’s design for distinct male and female roles has been corrupted into “fifty shades of gray.”
Generation Y is sometimes called “the echo boom,” as it is the largest generation since the postwar boomers. In fact, some statistics list Gen Y as numbering 80 million or more. Beyond this group is Generation Z—or those born after 1995. Today’s media culture is already targeting this generation as rising consumers, customizing advertising to reach gender-neutral, tech-hungry, post-human individuals. Perhaps even more than their parents, Gen Y youth look to genetics to take the next step in human evolution. What is that step? Consider popular culture and the memes Gen Y and Gen Z young people are exposed to every day. Graphic novels, films, television, and video games constantly and consistently teach that mankind is about to “level up.” Young men and women (and those in between) can become werewolves, vampires, super soldiers, and spider men. The old human paradigm of two genders and five senses can be replaced with an infinite number of gender choices (or none at all!) and extra senses that allow the transhuman to hear colors, smell sounds, or tune into the very fabric of space and time. The biblical promise that we will “rise up as eagles” is twisted into promising wings that permit the new human to take physical flight. Generations Y and Z could live forever. At least, that is the lie they are being told.
Cybernetics and synthetic genomes will soon merge into the sexy Cylon of Battlestar Galactica. The post-human will be beautiful, perfect in form, and capable of superhuman feats. And he/she will live forever. “Ye shall be as gods” is the oldest lie, spoken to Adam and Eve by a garden snake long ago, but it is echoing once again in the promises to a generation of lost, unhappy youths. The Antichrist will play upon this inner need for perfection, this constant yearning to become a god. The youth of Hitler’s day believed they would join their leader in the coming thousand years of Aryan rule over the Earth. Is it so far-fetched to say that coming evil one, foreshadowed by Adolf Hitler, will also promise his followers a plum part in his kingdom?
Remember this important fact: The Antichrist will claim to BE CHRIST. He will arrive as a peacemaker—as the answer to all of our worldly problems. It is also quite possible that he will claim to be an enhanced—or “trans”—human. It might be more accurate to call him a “trance” human, for the Antichrist will cast a spell upon today’s youth, luring all those who do not call the true Christ their Savior to take his special Mark. This might be a chip inserted into the body used to track each person’s location, but it may be much more. This Mark of the Beast might actually rewrite DNA.
Many of you may remember the early days of computers and computing power. Commercially available computers arose about the same time as Watson and Crick’s hallmark discovery. The US Census Bureau received the first UNIVAC computer on March 31, 1951, for a cost of nearly $1 million. In all, the government purchased forty-six UNIVAC computers, which is remarkable considering that each machine required its own small room! Back then, computing power for these monsters paled in comparison when measured against the tiny computer inside your cell phone.
In just fifty years, computer technology has advanced incredibly fast, solid-state hard drives have replaced old magnetic tape, and chips have replaced vacuum tubes. It’s very likely that the computer in your hand today is flash-based, containing no hard drive at all. Cloud computing will soon mitigate the need for “local storage,” although (for now) you can still buy laptops with more than a terabyte of storage! One of the first computers one of these authors had was an old Commodore 128 that had 128 kilobytes of RAM. The laptop I’m using this morning has 6 gigabytes of RAM.
Hard-disk storage—in the old days—consisted of ROM, or “Read-Only Memory,” which held chips or areas of storage that included operating software that must remain permanently available but rarely or never required updating. As computers advanced and “floppy disks” were added, most of these disks were “write once,” which meant data could be written to them only one time. They could not be rewritten.
At one time, scientists considered our DNA as “Read-Only Memory.” The code within each of our cells contains instructions for making the machinery that runs the complex operations that keep us alive. However, beginning in the twentieth century, early geneticists discovered a process called recombination that allows the insertion of new genetic material into a cell’s genome. Recombination makes “gene therapy” possible, using a bacterial or viral vector, or “truck,” to deliver the new genetic sequence to the target cell (perhaps in the lung or muscle). Scientists see nothing ethically wrong with “editing” our God-given genome; they merely see this as another form of self-directed evolution. Of course, one can only begin to edit what one reads first. Enter the Human Genome Project (HGP).
It is now possible to splice genes, modify DNA
It might be said that the HGP actually began on December 9, 1984, when a group of scientists gathered in the Alta, Utah, ski resort area high up in the Wasatch Mountains. There, David Smith of the Department of Energy and Mortimer Mendelsohn of Lawrence Livermore Laboratory gathered with seventeen genetics scientists to determine whether or not the time might be right to commence serious measurement of the mutations within the human genome. Joining Smith and Mendelsohn were David Botstein, Ebert Branscomb, Charles Cantor, C. Thomas Caskey, George McDonald Church, John D. Delaharty, Charles Edington, Raymond Gesteland, Leonard Leman, Michael Gough, John Mulvihill, Richard Myers, James V. Neel, Maynard Olson, Edwin Southern, Sherman Weissman, and Raymond L. White.
Of this stellar list of respected names, one stands out: George McDonald Church. Church is a self-professed transhumanist and author of the recent best seller, Regenesis: How Synthetic Biology Will Reinvent Nature and Ourselves. He’s a dedicated vegan, an entrepreneur (having established nine genomics-based businesses, including Knome,Pathogenica, and Gen9Bio—a synthetic biology company), and an avowed transhumanist who would love to see revived Neanderthal, assuming a human female volunteers to be the surrogate mother. (Oh, and by the way, Church was also instrumental in kick-starting the “race for the brain,” discussed later in this section.)
Initially, the Alta group had discussed finding a repeatable and affordable means to quantify mutations within the Hiroshima offspring. Two years later, in 1986, Mendelsohn joined several others from Alta, as well as panel chair Arno Moltulsky of the Center for Inherited Disease, to present a report called “Office of Technology Assessment, Technologies for Detecting Heritable Mutations in Human Beings.” This report had followed a meeting of leading molecular biologists in the spring of that year organized by James Watson (yes, that Watson), and held at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory. Cold Spring, if you remember your eugenics history, was the site for the Eugenics Records Office (ERO). Are you beginning to get a nagging twitch at the back of your neck? Me, too.
By 1987, promotion of a planned genomic sequencing event kicked off with an article in the nation’s most prominent newspaper, The New York Times (NYT), titled “The Genome Project”:
IT WOULD BE THE BIGGEST, costliest, most provocative biomedical research project in history, and the United States must embark on it immediately. That was how Walter Gilbert, Nobel Prize-winning biology professor at Harvard University, heard the genome project described at scientific meetings all through 1985 and 1986. The undertaking—which would reveal the precise biochemical makeup of the entire genetic material, or genome, of a human being—would, he heard, revolutionize medicine. It would answer the Japanese challenge in biotechnology. It would grant insight into human biology previously held only by God. (emphasis added)
After fawning over several scientists who attended the Alta meeting, the NYT article continues:
Today, a new consensus is emerging. Robert Cook-Deegan, an analyst at the Office of Technology Assessment (O.T.A.), a Congressional agency, reports that of late, “N.I.H. has been talking to D.O.E. There’s more cooperation than friction.” A bill has been introduced in Congress by Senator Pete Domenici of New Mexico to create a Government consortium to map and sequence the genome. Other bills are in the offing. Few doubt that the genome project, in some form, will eventually get under way.
Nobel laureate Walter Gilbert, though you may not know it, partnered with George Church in the study of mouse and yeast genetic elements. Gilbert also co-founded the company Biogen (now Biogen Idec) in 1978. Wally Gilbert may not be an avowed transhumanist, but he does spend a lot of time with Church, so one wonders if he might not be influenced by such proximity. Church is an evangelist when it comes to transhumanist dogma; perhaps it’s discussed over a nice plate of organic sprouts.
With the NYT and other media moguls on board and a bill before Congress, it didn’t take long for the idea of a gene race to take hold. In 1989, before leaving office, President Ronald Reagan approved the plans for a US-led Genome Project and placed it in his 1988 budget. In May 1990, the official proposal went to Capitol Hill under the title Understanding Our Genetic Inheritance, The U.S. Human Genome Project: The First Five Years (FY 1991–1995). Don’t let the title fool you; the plan was for a fifteen-year study of the human genome to commence in 1991.
On September 11 of that same year, President George H. W. Bush gave a speech in a rare appearance before a joint session of Congress to discuss the economy and the rising conflict in the Persian Gulf. On that auspicious occasion, Bush said this:
As you know, I’ve just returned from a very productive meeting with Soviet President [Mikhail] Gorbachev, and I am pleased that we are working together to build a new relationship. In Helsinki, our joint statement affirmed to the world our shared resolve to counter Iraq’s threat to peace. Let me quote: “We are united in the belief that Iraq’s aggression must not be tolerated. No peaceful international order is possible if larger states can devour their smaller neighbors.”
Clearly, no longer can a dictator count on East-West confrontation to stymie concerted United Nations action against aggression.
A new partnership of nations has begun, and we stand today at a unique and extraordinary moment. The crisis in the Persian Gulf, as grave as it is, also offers a rare opportunity to move toward an historic period of cooperation. Out of these troubled times, our fifth objective—a new world order—can emerge: A new era—freer from the threat of terror, stronger in the pursuit of justice and more secure in the quest for peace.An era in which the nations of the world, east and west, north and south, can prosper and live in harmony.
A hundred generations have searched for this elusive path to peace, while a thousand wars raged across the span of human endeavor, and today that new world is struggling to be born. A world quite different from the one we’ve known. A world where the rule of law supplants the rule of the jungle. A world in which nations recognize the shared responsibility for freedom and justice. A world where the strong respect the rights of the weak.
This is the vision that I shared with President Gorbachev in Helsinki. He and the other leaders from Europe, the gulf and around the world understand that how we manage this crisis today could shape the future for generations to come. (emphasis added)
Is it a coincidence that the leader of the free world included such language in a speech that comes just as the world of science has initiated the most ambitious project of them all: to decode God’s signature within our cells?
Genetically altered "test" humans already happening
The slow and steady progress from eugenics to genetics to a New World Order is not coincidental, dear reader. It is part and parcel of an ages-old plan to unseat the true God and replace Him with a false idol, even man himself. Transcendence and transhumanism are the fruits of the Eugenics Record Office and the pioneering efforts of men like David Jordan and even our illustrious past president Theodore Roosevelt, who wrote this in a letter to prominent eugenicist Charles Davenport in 1913:
My dear Mr. Davenport:
am greatly interested in the two memoirs you have sent me. They are
very instructive, and, from the standpoint of our country, very ominous.
You say that these people are not themselves responsible, that it
is “society” that is responsible. I agree with you if
you mean, as I suppose you do, that society has no business to permit
degenerates to reproduce their kind. It is really extraordinary that
our people refuse to apply to human beings such elementary knowledge
as every successful farmer is obliged to apply to his own stock breeding.
Any group of farmers who permitted their best stock not to breed,
and let all the increase come from the worst stock, would be treated
as fit inmates for an asylum. Yet we fail to understand that such
conduct is rational compared to the conduct of a nation which permits
unlimited breeding from the worst stocks, physically and morally,
while it encourages or connives at the cold selfishness or the twisted
sentimentality as a result of which the men and women ought to marry,
and if married have large families, remain celebates [sic] or have
no children or only one or two. Some day we will realize that the
prime duty—the inescapable duty—of the good citizen of
the right type is to leave his or her blood behind him in the world;
and that we have no business to permit the perpetuation of citizens
of the wrong type.
[And at bottom of left corner:] Charles B. Davenport, Esq.,
Cold Spring Harbor, L.I. (emphasis added; Theodore Roosevelt, “Society has no business to permit degenerates to reproduce their own kind” letter, Letters of Note, posted with image of original letter on March 25, 2011)
Anyone reading today must be shocked to discover that our famous president actually believed it to be the duty of American citizens to leave behind the “right type” of blood! Adolf Hitler came to power based on an ideology steeped in opinions such as these, by taking the ideology of American eugenicists coupled with the financial backing of many within that movement, including George H. W. Bush’s father, Prescott Bush!
According to a September 2004 article posted online in the UK paper, The Guardian, Bush’s actions caused him to be indicted under the US “Trading with the Enemy Act”:
George Bush’s grandfather, the late US senator Prescott Bush, was a director and shareholder of companies that profited from their involvement with the financial backers of Nazi Germany.
The Guardian has obtained confirmation from newly discovered files in the US National Archives that a firm of which Prescott Bush was a director was involved with the financial architects of Nazism.
While there is no suggestion that Prescott Bush was sympathetic to the Nazi cause, the documents reveal that the firm he worked for, Brown Brothers Harriman (BBH), acted as a US base for the German industrialist, Fritz Thyssen, who helped finance Hitler in the 1930s before falling out with him at the end of the decade. The Guardian has seen evidence that shows Bush was the director of the New York-based Union Banking Corporation (UBC) that represented Thyssen’s US interests and he continued to work for the bank after America entered the war.

Though the Guardian had timed the publication of this article to coincide with Bush’s reelection campaign, we can thank the dark world of politics for its publication! Because of this, you and I can make the connections necessary to help us discern the times in which we live. Since the dawn of the twentieth century, a dark force has been rising within the confines of this sleeping giant of a country. Eugenics and eventually neo-eugenics and transhumanism have dictated scientific direction and set goals for politicians, all with one end in mind: To achieve the ultimate goal of the New World Order... and it's Beastly MARK. To give IT birth!
