OTHER USEFUL BIOTECH TOOLS FOR ANTICHRIST
“By responsible use of science, technology, and other rational means we shall eventually manage to become posthuman.”—Prof. Nick BostromNot long ago a writer for Wired Magazine named Elizabeth Svoboda contacted me to let me know she was writing an article about “research advances using transgenic animals to produce pharmaceutical compounds.” She had come across an editorial by me raising caution about this kind of experimentation, and wondered if I might be willing to provide points for her article, elaborating areas where I saw producing transgenic animals as potentially harmful. She stated that most of the scientists she planned to quote were “pretty gung-ho about the practice,” and thought it would be important to provide some balance. I thanked her for the invitation, and sent a short summary of some, though not all, of the areas where concerns about this science could be raised.
“We can devise ways of at least trying to manage the enormous powers of nanotechnology, but superintelligence by its nature cannot be controlled. The nano/robotic revolution will force us to reconsider the very definition of human.”—Ray Kurzweil
“The spirit one discerns in pondering the ruminations of the Transhumanists causes one to conclude that what these thinkers propose is developmental progressing towards something along the lines of the Borg from Star Trek or the Cybermen or Darleks from Doctor Who.”—Frederick B. Meekins
When the article was finally published by Wired Magazine, I was surprised that none of my notes had made it into the story. I contacted Elizabeth and asked why, and she replied, “Unfortunately, my editors cut your quotes during the editing process, which were originally included in my article Pharm Animals Crank Out Drugs.” She apologized and said she hoped the experience had not soured me on dealing with Wired Magazine.
“It doesn’t sour me,” I assured her. “I just think the reporting by most agencies is lopsided and missing the opportunity to thoroughly engage such an important issue.”
The Wired Magazine article was mostly positive on transgenic research and concluded with a scientist by the name of Marie Cecile Van de Lavoir saying that potential human health benefits from transgenic research “justify tinkering” with nature’s plan. “If a transgenic animal produces a great cancer therapy,” she said, “I won’t hear anyone saying, ‘You shouldn’t do that.’”
Van de Lavoir’s comments were undoubtedly in response to some of my observations before they were cut, because in offering caution I had specifically used the phrase “tinkering with nature’s plan.” Van de Lavoir’s short-sided approach, like many bioethicists engaged in the current debate, is as scary as the science in my opinion. I wanted to contact her to suggest that she watch the film I Am Legend, which opens appropriately enough with a scientist announcing the cure to cancer using a genetically engineered virus that blends animal and human genetics. If you’ve seen the film, you know the “cure” results in a human form of rabies that wipes out most life on earth, a real possibility given the scenario.
While I believe some positive things will come from biotechnology, nanotechnology, and synthetic biology, it is the prophetic expectance of these new/old fields of science that intrigues me. Besides potentially being a mechanism that unseen forces could use to incarnate the Man of Sin and raise from Sheol-Hades his army of extinct Nephilim in time for Armageddon, biotechnology could provide a number of other useful tools for facilitating the empire of Antichrist, including eugenics, food contagions, hybrid viruses, prion contamination, exotic new diseases and plagues of biblical proportions, just to name a few. Because we cannot take time in this series to properly cover each of these risks, we present two aspects of biotech (in addition to Apollonian and Nephilim resurrection) that could eventually stand out as related to the book of Revelation and the advent of Antichrist. These would be 1) end-time plagues and 2) the Mark of the Beast. Credit must be given to my perfect wife Nita who first brought to my attention the unique idea of biotech and the Mark of the Beast, and two of my favorite writers—Sharon Gilbert and Sue Bradley who offered their expertise in defining the following two points.
1) MODERN WATCHER SCIENCE & OPENING PANDORA’S BOX
In 1818, Mary Shelley, the author of Frankenstein, first described her expedition into “murky subterranean passages” within the trapezoid cavern of Cumaean Sibyl near Naples, Italy. It was here, in the cave so frequently described in Virgil’s first century Eclogues and Æneid, that Shelley asserts she discovered the ancient apocalyptic writings of the Roman prophetess Cumaean Sybil, recorded on oak leaves. Translating and editing the Sibylline Prophecies, Mary Shelley published The Last Man in 1826.
Described as “a memory at the end of history” The Last Man begins, “…let me fancy myself as I was in 2094” and continues to describe an horrific plague that destroys mankind as a species. The Last Man would become the first modern account of an apocalyptic pandemic and disturbingly, would be written as a nihilist narrative in a posthuman era.
Contagion, the transmission of disease, has always been a unique entity, surpassing all potential cataclysms with its singular characteristic of being entirely sovereign and nondiscriminatory. Borderless, apolitical, and smugly defiant, disease has spread, multiplied and mutated and has historically shown deference to no one.
Though mortality estimates of pandemics throughout history are often unreliable (if not entirely unknown), their impact has often been measured only by these statistics, with less examination of concurrent societal disruption. With the exception of medical and scientific study, epidemics were understood mostly within their literary and classical context. Children’s songs, nursery rhymes and colloquialisms would hint of their impact, but nothing in recent memory would demand the serious attention of many in western society. The sustained scourge of AIDS is familiar in concept, but easily dismissed unless there is direct involvement. Ebola, cholera, plague, Marburg, SARS and anthrax are serious sounding, but largely irrelevant to the generations raised in a society of ‘eradication’ vaccines and fix ‘em fast antibiotics.
Nonetheless there has been growing concern among modern experts of the fast-rising density of human populations and the immediate need to strategize to avoid high death tolls in inevitable natural disasters. Similarly, public health experts warn that vigilance and speed in tracking and responding to disease outbreaks is vital to limit the chances of a pandemic.
Every age in history has had its plagues, wars and disasters. What is different about our world today is the enormous potential of a catastrophic pandemic situation. A public health emergency at this level would be far more catastrophic than any other type of naturally occurring, accidental or other instigated event the world has experienced.
While Hollywood has steadily inoculated the comfortably preoccupied masses with remarkably prescient bio-threat scenarios, I Am Legend, Outbreak, The Stand, V for Vendetta, the very real and prolific research programs began to notice that life forms confined to the microscopic realm were changing: rapidly, sometimes predictably, oftentimes unpredictably and in some instances, chillingly purposefully.
Add to this the unpleasant reality of biological warfare, which begins in its ancient past and ends in a time yet forward. From poisoning enemy wells, hurling dead corpses over city walls or giving smallpox ridden blankets to American Indians, it is difficult to grasp the concept of being assaulted by a living, albeit microscopic, enemy.
But the plagues of history past bear little resemblance to their emergent constructs.
As science continued its quest for unlocking DNA, a parallel priority - with a far more sinister agenda - was already growing – and on the loose. Designed for maximum casualties and high emotional impact, this nano-army can be crafted for ethnic specific targeting. Despite warnings and flags, these unseen warriors are eager to meet their new hosts and are prepared to launch a new campaign, promising to reveal themselves in all of their horror, in an unprecedented spectacular finale.
In Plague Wars: The Terrifying Reality of Biological Warfare, authors Tom Mangold and Jeff Goldberg assert that,
Biological weapons are both more immoral and more lethal than their pestilential cohorts in the nuclear and chemical armory, for infecting the enemy aggressor can infect his own side; the pathogens blur the lines between peace and war as they silently spread through the ranks of families and non-combatants…Creations on the drawing board that promise exotic delivery systems for dispersing the biological materials are no less startling. Recently the Israeli newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth reported that Israel is using nanotechnology to create a robot no bigger than a hornet that would be able to chase, corner, photograph and deliver lethal agents to kill its targets. The flying robot, nicknamed the “bionic hornet,” would be able to navigate its way down narrow alleyways to target otherwise unreachable enemies. Similar biomechanic developments in the United States are being funded by DARPA where cyborg-insect interfaces envision warbots no bigger than a bug that can take to the battlefield one at a time as spies or in swarms powerful enough to bring down fighter jets. The same micro-mechanical insect sentinels could serve up biological weapons, delivering viruses, bacteria, toxins, or microorganisms that afflict or destroy people, animals, and agriculture.
…But for some who wore cloaks and broke the rules, exotic bugs and toxins were preferable to daggers.
… To contemplate their use is to wink at evil, for pestilence and poison are afflictions as much as weapons. 
While such stratagems obviously appeal to the highest levels of US military intelligence, theologians will be troubled by glaring similarities between this technology and biblical predictions of an end-time spiral by mankind into a cataclysmic war where locust-sized weapons are “given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power” (Rev. 9:3).
In describing the activity of the Antichrist demon Apollo, Revelation 9:1-11 says this “king” of transgenic locusts opens the bottomless pit and releases synthesized insectoids to torment mankind. Some scholars believe when ‘John the Revelator’ made these recordings, he was actually describing future technologies and that he simply referred to the bio-mechanized hybrids in terms he understood; i.e. swarms of Israel’s “bionic hornet” were perceived as locusts whose wings sounded like “many horses running to battle” (Rev. 9:9).
Are the locust hoards of Revelation chapter 9 created in human laboratories that employ the same Watchers technology we believe could give rise to Apollo’s return? Could be, and these less glamorous and decidedly more dramatic bio products seek a more pernicious and indelible glow than the cutesy biologic ‘novelties’ the public has seen so far—genetically engineered puppies that glow in the dark, fish and plants.
Plum Island and NEST
Located off the NE Coast of Long Island, NY, beyond Montauk, the Plum Island Animal Disease Center (PIADC) is a Level 3 Biosafety Agriculture facility. Transferred in 2002 from the US Department of Agriculture to the US Department of Homeland Security, Plum Island is a federal facility for the research and investigation of foreign and domestic animal pathogens. Plum Island’s offshore status allows the study of forbidden mainland organisms including the housing of freezers which contain samples of polio and other microbial diseases that can be transferred from animals to humans.
NEST on the other hand (Nuclear Emergency Support Team) is one of seven emergency response branches of the US Department of Energy’s Nuclear Safety Administration. Information from the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists indicates that NEST has the ability to deploy up to 600 experts in the event of an “incident” alongside the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Domestic Emergency Support Team or the State Department’s Foreign Emergency Support Team.
In February, 2004, Popular Mechanics magazine featured a cover story, “When UFO’s Arrive” that described such an “incident” scenario where NEST would be activated. Within the seemingly whimsical text, story author Jim Wilson wrote:
…State Of Emergency: If ET turns up at NASA’s doorstep bearing that invitation, it is in for a surprise. Instead of getting a handshake from the head of NASA, it will be handcuffed by an FBI agent dressed in a Biosafety Level 4 suit. Instead of sleeping in the Lincoln Bedroom at the White House, the alien will be whisked away to the Department of Agriculture’s Animal Disease Center on Plum Island, off the coast of New York’s Long Island. Here it will be poked and probed by doctors from the National Institutes of Health. A Department of Energy (DOE) Nuclear Emergency Search Team (NEST) will tow away its spacecraft.
Unfriendly as this welcome may seem, it is the chain of events that most likely will follow the visitor’s arrival. Unique as the appearance of an alien-piloted spacecraft may be, the event incorporates elements of three situations familiar to federal emergency response workers: a plane crash, the release of radioactive material, and the capture of an animal suspected of harboring a contagious disease. Responsibilities in these situations are spelled out in Presidential Executive Orders….All of the prophets including Jesus Christ prophesied that the last days would witness NEST-like “incidences” where unexpected nuclear and/or biological “pestilences” (Mt. 24:7) wash upon earth. Zechariah the prophet provided a vivid description of one such plague, saying, “Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth” (14:12). Though Mary Shelley’s Apocalyptic pandemic in The Last Man does not sit authoritatively on the same shelf as Scripture, it is worth remembering her insistence that this work is a translation of the nine ancient Sibylline Books as recorded by the priestess Cumaean Sibyl while presiding over the Apollonian oracle—the same prophetess whose Novus Ordo Seclorum rests upon the Great Seal of the United States pointing to the arrival of the deity that Scripture and Occultists agree comes to rule the final pagan empire. Will biotech play a role in the fulfillment of her prophecies by providing the tools to raise her god and the plagues Scripture say will accompany him? We will reveal that People in high places believe so, but first in the next entry we consider how the same Watcher technology could give rise to the Mark of the Beast.
