CLONING: WONDER OR ABOMINATION
This research on the cell and cloning combines excerpts and adaptation of the book "The Genetic Revolution" written by Patrick Dixon, MD., and the whole concept of the Brain Nerves as presented by Numbers 1317.
To prove without a shadow of a doubt that the Creator of man and every living things, is the perfect Genetic Engineer
. Any attempt to imitate or clone His magnificent work is a base crime of the worst kind.
Could it be that the history of this century's holocausts is repeated under our very eyes but under more sophisticated appellations: GENETIC ENGINEERING, CLONING, FETAL TRANSPLANTS, SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH, FOOD ENGINEERING.
We would do well to remember Hitler "pure blond race" and dwell on these dramatic words written under inspiration:
"But if there was a sin above another which called for the destruction of the race by the flood, it was the base crime of amalgamation of man and beast which defaced the image of God and caused confusion everywhere.... Every species of animal which God created was preserved in the ark. The confused species which God did not create, which were the result of amalgamation, were destroyed by the flood. Since the flood, there has been amalgamation of man and beast, as may be seen in the almost endless varieties of species of animals, and in certain races of men." Spirit of Prophecy, Volume 1 page 69 and 78.
"The brain nerves that connect with the whole system are the only medium through which heaven communicates with man and affects his inmost life." Education p. 209.
IN THE BEGINNING
LAST "FIXED" GENETIC CODE
From the most ancient times, generations have come and gone: individuals have formed relationships, married, conceived and brought up children quite literally in the image of themselves. Out of this experience of oneness (however transient) has come with conception a unique historical event: a fusion of their two lives and individuality to form a brand new mix of them both as a new child is born. Yet for the generation born this year, or next, it could be the end of the line.
The generation being born now may well be the last to have a "fixed" genetic code, inherited universally in a conventional way. As we will begin to see, there may be few alive in 30 years time who have not had the genetic code of at least some of their cells reprogrammed away from what they naturally inherited. For some, they will acquire genetic changes which will outlast their own lives because they will be passed on to their children, their grandchildren and their great grandchildren. Subsequent generations will have to judge whether this is a blessing or a biological curse.
THE BOOK OF LIFE
The quite extraordinary thing about the code of life is that it is so constant: the smallest most primitive living organism to the largest has a book of life written in exactly the same language and structured in an identical way. For evolutionists this comes as no surprise, neither does it to those who believe the Genesis account as truth and that when God spoke the language of creation he spoke in the language of life, or genetic code.
This mystery of life itself is about to be broken, in the test tube of the laboratory and in the brain of the desktop microcomputer. It is happening right now in front of our eyes yet few have seen it happening or understood the consequences. What about the consequences, and how we respond to them?
For centuries, people have dreamed of being able to alter themselves, or each other or of being able to produce "clones". More recently parents have thought not only of choosing the sex of their children but also of being able to influence the development of their children to produce high intelligence, attractive personality, healthy constitution, athletic body, musical ability and maybe even an obedient nature!
Farmers have dreamed of low fat cows, non-bruised tomatoes, cold-resistant bananas, corn which comes up year after year without seeding and other strange creations.
Parents of children with inherited diseases such as cystic fibrosis, where the lung problems are a result of faulty genetic code have dreamed of a day when doctors might be able to program the faulty gene back.
Those with AIDS have dreamed of a cure for HIV infection, reversing the damage done to cells by the virus called HIV, which programs white cells to produce more viruses instead of fighting infection.
To say that all these things are already possible would be a gross exaggeration. However, as we will see, the machinery and knowledge is already here and the experience will be before long. But before we look at what is happening now we need to see the "genetic revolution" in an historical context.
