Genetic Engineering and Other Obsurdities

Science is a world of ignorance punctuated by bits of insight. This truth is evident in such human endeavors as: pharmaceuticals, evolution, education, genetically modified organisms “GMO”, gene patents, sociology, cosmology (the granddaddy of them all), physics (notably nuclear physics), to name a few.  There will always be problems when you monkey with correctly engineered things. This is so important to realize when considering altering the genetics of living things. I realize that the genomes of all living things are subject to decay and after innumerable replications of these wonderful creatures all around us and ourselves, and the forces at work , that some of the original genetic information has decayed as well.

Corn
Signs of Corn Seed Accounting?

This level of engineering is so far above anything that has ever come out of science that it makes our feeble attempts look like mud pies. So, why are we trying to fix it, or worse yet, modify it? Do the drug companies ever listen to the disclaimers in their commercials? Just think of growing use of bacterial genetic material  being spliced into corn genes to make them produce a pesticide that will protect the corn from bugs. Will that pesticide end up in the corn we eat? Will the bacteria also modify our genes to turn humans into pesticide factories? How else will the new genes effect the corn, will the bugs become resistant to the pesticide?

We’re dealing with processes and machinery operating entirely at the atomic level and therefore impossible to monitor with any level of precision. There is some level of regulation by the government and in some cases an intense approval process in place to minimize negative impact. But, then again, the organizations spearheading these efforts are science-based usually and these folks still believe in superstitious things like evolutionism and such. Breeding plants and animals based on naturally occurring variations is one thing, but playing Russian roulette  with their genes is just insanely dangerous especially when the motivation is profit driven.

Above all, it’s imperative to acknowledge that living things have a Creator who knows what we are up to! As we consider that fact, perhaps we will set aside these foolish enterprises.

Things are Coming Together

I certainly don’t want to rush into limbo by ranting all about the blunders that our government has been making. After all, don’t we elect them? What good would it do anyway since we have allowed them to open the flood gates via the unregulated “internet” giving the world of criminals access to our banks, our healthcare system and educational institutions across Bill’s info superhighway 80, so to speak…

Now with all this globalism and the notion that this is “our” planet and that we need to save it from “global warming”. So, have we really taken over the world? This planet is, and always has been, owned by it’s Creator and He will determine its fate. Of this you can be sure!

Having said that, you can also be sure that all the prophecies of the Bible must be fulfilled. The Creator came to us as Jesus and told us that “heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away”. It’s wonderful to see His plan being worked out in this age of free and open communication worldwide which is enabling His people to fulfill Jesus’ prophecy, “And this good news of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.” This planet is set for destruction and there’s nothing we can do to change that.

Once the good news of Jesus’ offer of salvation and grace for us is communicated to that last unreached group of people the usefulness of the “age of communication” will have run its course. A godless world will be abandoned to its devices as those believers who are alive and remain will be caught up in the air just as the Lord Jesus was taken up after his resurrection.

So, if you believe in Jesus already as Lord, God and Savior, keep on doing so at all cost!. If you don’t, you must reconsider while you still can! I hope you will!
