By 2050, according to a “top scientist,” human beings will acquire the ability “to not die” ( https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-5408425/Human-beings-achieve-immortality-2050.html).
Yessireebob, immortality is just around the corner! This will be thanks to “Artificial Intelligence mimicking human thought,” “body part renewal,” and “linking bodies to machines.” And thanks to cloning, our masters will be able to “restore the brain as it matures.” Paging Dr. Frankenstein…
Wow. Like, 700 more years of Nancy Pelosi in the House of Representatives. I can’t wait.
But what we’re talking about here is just another freakin’ simulation. “You” will become a collection of computer programs and whatnot. Stuff that imitates you.
Oh, but let’s say it really works, and you become sort of immortal. You’ll last for as long as the high-tech wizardry doesn’t spring a leak.
I don’t know about you, but I don’t like to imagine what that would be like. What if one of your personal updates goes wrong? What effect would it have on your mind, on your soul–presuming you still have one, once they’re through with you–to live without the certainty of eventual death… and without the hope of eternal life through Jesus Christ? With the thought that one slip, one glitch, and you’re gone for good–or maybe just turned into some kind of AI zombie that isn’t you at all?
Turn us all into a race of Terminators–yeah, what could possibly go wrong?
This is idol worship with a vengeance.
See? See? Science can too do anything it wants! Yes, thanks to Science, we can, we can keep the human species going even if we convince everybody to be “gay.”
‘Cause now scientists in China have done just that with mice! (https://www.statnews.com/2018/10/11/mice-same-sex-parents-stem-cells-crispr/). Yessiree, mice with two dads! All courtesy of messing around with the genetics.
They wound up with more than 400 embryos, starting with two dads and a lot of hi-tech genetic intervention. Of those, ten were actually born! The fact that all ten died well before reaching adulthood–well, that was almost certainly due to homophobia.
In 2004 Japanese scientists made mice with two moms. Again, 400+ embryos. Again, ten born. One of the baby mice made it to adulthood. Surely the most expensive mouse in the history of life on earth.
What the scientists are trying to do is to overcome the hard-wired inability of mammals and flowering plants to produce offspring by asexual reproduction.
Yeah, yeah–they say it’s so they can learn how to get into the gene and heal genetic diseases, correct genetic flaws. We are at liberty not to believe this.
You know the Left is going to seize on this and demand the technology be used to allow same-sex pseudo-couples to reproduce. And who cares if it messes up the baby’s genes in ways that no one has even yet imagined? That is if they don’t abort it before it’s born.
Somehow that seems to be exactly where these people want to go–allowing pairs of sodomites to make a baby so they can then have an abortion.
It was satire once. Now… not so much.
Climbit Change alarmists were acting guilty four years ago, and they’re still acting guilty today. Saving The Planet is just too good an excuse for acquiring and wielding absolute power–the straw to stir global government’s drink.
I’ll always remember how joyful I was when, literally within 60 seconds of his inauguration, President Trump’s administration removed all references to Global Warming from his White House website.
Oh–and by 2015 New York City was supposed to have the climate of Daytona Beach, Florida. Al Gore said so.
Smarter than you, dude–if you were dumb enough to buy them in the first place.
Yeah, what a swell idea–give somebody, you don’t know who, you don’t know where, control of the lights inside your house. What could possibly go wrong?
As a general rule of thumb: “Smart” means something that will spy on you. Smart meters, smartphones, smart TV–really, you don’t need these in your life. Why anyone would ever want to collect all that mundane information about ordinary people’s lives–well, let’s just say it can’t possibly be for any good reason.
P.S. — I am sorry the Comments are disabled. At the moment, the $#$@%$ computer will not allow me to enable them. It must be a “smart” computer.
America’s top scientists are falling like tenpins over newly-disclosed ethics violations (https://www.yahoo.com/news/fall-top-us-scientists-points-ethics-gap-research-045350389.html), Yahoo News reports. Payola ain’t just for disc jockeys anymore.
Just to name three:
*A scientist who has authored “hundreds of articles on cancer research” has taken “millions of dollars” from pharmaceutical and medical supplies companies.
*Cornell has demanded the resignation of a top food scientist who reported “surprisingly positive results in dozens of his articles,” thirteen of which have already been pulled from the journals.
*A public health professor at Dartmouth has been credibly accused of rather a lot of plagiarism.
The scientific establishment has been reluctant to discuss these incidents, said one source, for fear “it would aid and abet anti-science forces,” whoever they might be. Well, we can’t have people being anti-science, can we? They might turn into Climate Change deniers. And everybody must believe in Evolution!
To those of us who grew up in the Fifties, in the Sputnik generation, Science was presented as the unimpeachable be-all and end-all of human endeavor. Sooner or later, Science would solve all our problems. Suddenly all the TV commercials featured actors in white lab coats: “Scientific studies say our product is the best!” We were expected to believe them, because Science never lies; and most of us did.
“Cease ye from man, whose breath is in his nostrils: for wherein is he to be accounted of?” says the Bible (Isaiah 2:22). Right on.
Scientists are sinners like the rest of us. They are not unimpeachable fountains of pure truth. I suppose they might still be more honest than journalists, but that’s setting the bar about as low as you can set it without laying it on the ground.
Scientists at Fanabla University have discovered “significant decrease in brain volume” in persons who are politically liberal.
“We are most grievously dismayed to discover this,” said Dr. Haffa Baggon, director of the research team, “but this is now the settled science, so there’s nothing that can be done about it.”
As the brain shrinks, he explains, the interior of the cranium fills up with “this disgusting fatty tissue” completely surrounding the brain.
The average adult liberal male, the research team found, “has a brain no bigger than a freakin’ orange,” said a team member who did not wish to be identified. “The all-time small brain champion,” he added, was a Gender Studies professor whose brain was the size of a walnut.
The researchers, according to a reliable source, are currently preparing to flee to another continent.
The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God (Ps. 14:1); but there be lots ‘n’ lots of Global Warming.
Not to worry, said a “scientist,” a few years ago: not to worry a bit! All we gotta do to Save The Planet is, like, kill ourselves.
No one hates the human race like a humanist.
If you insist on trying to see any point to Saving The Planet by wiping out humanity, that probably makes you a biggit. You are not intersectional! Chances are you are also dendritic. Or whatever.
“Evolution or else!”
I reviewed this Nightline episode back in 2005.
Do you remember this case? The local school board in Dover, Pennsylvania, expressed some skepticism of Evolution: so in roared the ACLU, guns ablaze, threatening to destroy the school district with lawsuits unless the board recanted and confessed Evolution to be the one and only truth. That’s how settled science stays settled.
Thing is, even with all these strong-arm tactics, even with them owning the culture, the Evolution side still can’t seal the deal. They just can’t get a majority of the people to believe in it.
Maybe it’s kind of hard to believe in a “scientific” doctrine that can only be kept alive with threats of force. Somehow “believe in this or we’ll destroy your school district” just doesn’t sound all that persuasive.
And maybe it’s awfully hard to understand why any expression of disbelief in Evolution calls down such a violent response. Why should they care so much? There’s something rather crazy about the whole business. Why do they feel so threatened if some tax preparer in Dover, Pennsylvania, isn’t buying into Darwinism?
Someone at Nightline should’ve asked those questions.
“Oooh-ooh, wait a minute–I’ve got it! Give us total control over, like, everything!”
Leftids make no secret of who they think they are–real smart people who are entitled to be gods–and what they want to do–take over the world and rule it as gods. We normal people have a very bad habit of not understanding that they mean it.
They keep revealing themselves in uncontrollable outbursts like this one, three years ago:
Right now it’s Global Warming/Climbit Chainge to serve as the rationale for allowing them to enslave us–Saving The Planet, don’t you know. Eventually it’ll be something else.
No one is more dangerous to our liberties than those who offer us utopia.
Don’t forget this little flurry that came along at the tail end of the last Democrat regime. If they’d thought of starting this around 2012, they might have made it stick: jail for everyone who won’t believe in Climbit Change.
I don’t remember how long it took Bill Nye the “Science” Guy to advance from jailing everyone who won’t listen to him to just rooting for them all to die.
These are the people who want to rule your country.
Please don’t let them.
