Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand.
Together both of these articles show that the scientists are on the verge of creating a transhuman. This is a beast that is part human and part something else. It could be part machine or, by mixing DNA, part animal. Creating a transhuman is right on top of us! The genetic manipulation is further advanced, but both are near completion which results in a human who is no longer human.
I believe that tampering with the integrity of man is a KEY sign of the approaching Day of the LORD. God will put a stop to this at the Second Coming of the Lord Jesus. It appears from Revelation 13:15 that man will succeed in creating a transhuman which the Bible calls “The Image of the Beast.”
Revelation 13:15 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
From charting the advancement toward creating a transhuman being, it is possible to get an idea how close man is to the Day of the LORD and God’s judgment. God must stop the creation of transhumans because these creatures are not created in His image and likeness; therefore, they cannot be redeemed through the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Transhumanism shows the end of the road of man’s rebellion against God! This is close, very close. What I am posting is NOT science fiction. What was once science fiction is now becoming reality! What was science fiction 20 years ago can be reality in the very near future! It is like much of science fiction is advertisement for transhumanism. It is softening the public, especially the youngsters, to accept it.These are incredible times we live in and do not be fearful: but grow closer to the Savior and focused on His Coming.
May the Holy God of Israel bless you.
I just watched a show on the Science channel about transhumanism. It was a real eye opener just how far down the road science is to creating a transhuman. To the scientists involved in the show, transhumanism was a “done deal” just waiting for the finishing touches. What stood out in the show is how much they referred to evolution. Science was just speeding up evolution or now man is in charge of evolution. Evolution is really evil as it leaves God out of the picture and now the scientists are playing God. They will play god to the point of creating the Image of the Beast that they will have to worship, which if they do, will dam them for eternity! They are building their own gallows. God is NOT mocked.
“Professor Henry Markram, a doctor-turned-computer engineer, announced that his team would create the world’s first artificial conscious and intelligent mind by 2018
What Markram’s project amounts to is an audacious attempt to build a computerized copy of a brain – starting with a rat’s brain, then progressing to a human brain – inside one of the world’s most powerful computers
Tens of millions of euros are flooding into his laboratory at the Brain Mind Institute at the Ecole Polytechnique in Lausanne – paymasters include the Swiss government, the EU and private backers, including the computer giant IBM. Artificial minds are, it seems, big business.”
This article shows just how close the scientists are to creating a human mind in a computer! The mind is being digitized, so a person’s thoughts could be downloaded into this computer.The robot body is nearly perfected, so all the ingredients for the Image of the Beast are in place. Now what is needed is fine tuning and some breakthroughs.
Even so, Come, Lord Jesus.
The Future “Human” Hand
“To many people, this vision of the future sounds nutty – “the Rapture of the geeks” is one unkind description — but the amazing thing is that many intelligent and well-heeled Silicon Valley residents, are enthusiastic supporters of the Singularity. These include Peter Thiel, the co-founder of PayPal. The giant internet corporation Google is the major financial backer of a project called Singularity University. This will educate leaders who
understand the exponential growth of technology and will use it to solve humanity’s grand challenges.”
“Neuroscientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have developed a powerful new class of tools to reversibly shut down brain activity using different colors of light. When targeted to specific neurons, they could potentially lead to new treatments for abnormal brain activity…”
“Researchers are already using brain-computer interfaces to aid the disabled, treat diseases like Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s, and provide therapy for depression and post-traumatic stress disorder. Work is under way on devices that may eventually let you communicate with friends telepathically, give you superhuman hearing and vision or even let you download data directly into your brain, a la “The Matrix.”
