US Military Invests In ‘Doomsday Genetics’ Technology: ‘My Main Worry Is That We Do Something Irreversible’

Amid United Nations fears that genetic extinction technology could be used by militaries, a United States military agency has invested $100 million in the doomsday biological technology that can wipe out an entire species.

Scientists now have the knowledge and the tools they need to create and deliver Doomsday genes which can selectively target and exterminate an entire species. And to make matters worse, emails released under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), suggest that the United States’s uber-secretive Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has become the world’s largest funder of this “gene drive” research and will heighten international tensions further ahead of a UN expert committee meeting in Montreal beginning on Tuesday.

The UN is debating a ban on this technology as several southern countries fear the application of using extinction technology. The use of genetic extinction technologies in bioweapons is the stuff of nightmares, but so far, known research is focused entirely on pest control and the elimination of diseases.  The key word there being “known.”

UN diplomats confirmed that the new email release would worsen the “bad name” of gene drives in some circles. “Many countries [will] have concerns when this technology comes from DARPA, a US military science agency,” one said.  “You may be able to remove viruses or the entire mosquito population, but that may also have downstream ecological effects on species that depend on them. My main worry,” he added, “is that we do something irreversible to the environment, despite our good intentions, before we fully appreciate the way that this technology will work.”  

Jim Thomas, a co-director of the ETC group which obtained the emails, said the US military’s influence in furthering this technology would strengthen the case for a moratorium. “The dual-use nature of altering and eradicating entire populations is as much a threat to peace and food security as it is a threat to ecosystems,” he said. “Militarization of gene drive funding may even contravene the Enmod convention against hostile uses of environmental modification technologies.”

But while we are on the subject of UN bans, the sanctions they placed on North Korea are being willfully ignored by the rogue regime.  It stands to reason that should a military seek the use of this technology, they will also defy the UN’s “authority.”

Todd Kuiken, who has worked with the GBIRd (genetic biocontrol) program, which receives $6.4 million from DARPA, said that the US military’s centrality to genetic technology funding meant that “researchers who depend on grants for their research may reorient their projects to fit the narrow aims of these military agencies,” which could include doomsday genetic weapons.  Between 2008 and 2014, the US government spent about $820 million on synthetic biology. Since 2012, most of this has come from DARPA and other military agencies, Kuiken says.

DARPA believes that a sharp decrease in the costs of gene-editing toolkits has created a greater opportunity for hostile or rogue actors to experiment with the technology. “This convergence of low cost and high availability means that applications for gene editing – both positive and negative – could arise from people or states operating outside of the traditional scientific community and international norms,” the official said. “It is incumbent on DARPA to perform this research and develop technologies that can protect against accidental and intentional misuse.”

Interest in the technology among US army bureaus has shot up since a secret report by the elite Jason group of military scientists last year “received considerable attention among various agencies of the US government,” according to an email by Gerald Joyce, who co-chaired a Jason study group in June. A second Jason report was commissioned in 2017 assessing “potential threats this technology might pose in the hands of an adversary, technical obstacles that must be overcome to develop gene drive technology and employ it ‘in the wild’,” Joyce wrote.

The paper would not be publicly disclosed but “widely circulated within the US intelligence and broader national security community”, his email said.

    UN debating a ban???

    If we’re talking about it’s probably already happening…

    This must be those “last days” blues???

  2. Concerned Citizen says:

    With stuff like this, what could possibly go WRONG? ? ? ?

    • Heartless says:

      Awww, nothing to worry about. The military never makes mistakes. A little genetic glitch here and there is all we might encounter. This reminds me of the book by Frank Herbert “White Plague”. For those who haven’t heard of it… about ‘gendercide’. A man-made virus that genetically/selectively killed only women. Kind of got out of control. But, naw, nothing like that would happen. It wouldn’t be like the military would target say genetic markers for say…. black hair or the epicanthic fold.

    This article should be attached to the above.

  4. TEST says:

    That Hideous Strength by CS Lewis examined this question in a fictional setting a half century ago, if any one is interested.

  5. DARPA has funded some interesting and advanced robotics research at Boston Dynamics. Instead of Gene Warfare, maybe they should be working on how to accelerate rust and electronics breakdown. It may be robots that we fight in the future. Whatever technology they develop, the Chinese seem adept at stealing.

  6. Dave says:

    Of course, the Bible doesn’t give us any indication. Oh wait, the generation that sees Israel reborn will see one third killed in war, and another third killed by famine and pestilence. Jesus returns to keep man from destroying himself entirely.

    The generation that sees Israel reborn. 2018 – 1948 —> 70 years and counting … which means it is going to happen incredibly fast, and soon.

    Good thing man doesn’t have the capability.

    Good thing it is all fableistic.

    I worked with a guy that had a saying. Sorry for the expletive but its essence doesn’t convey without its use.

    “People are no fucking good”.

    Granted its not everyone but “the meek do not inherent the earth” and immortality, cruelty, selfishness, cunning are the most common credentials of leadership.

    • Paranoid says:

      Well J Paul Getty said: “The meek may inherent the Earth; But they won’t get the mineral rights”. IMHO the meek can stick it; if you don’t have the guts to stand and fight for what’s right, you get what you deserve.

      • Kevin2 says:

        This is beyond force of arms. These SOBs control wealth, control what money is and isn’t, the distribution of resources. They control education and skim off the “cream of the crop” to do their bidding. The mere fact that individuals can have multiple billions flies in the face of an effective republic and the concept of “one man, one vote” and “equal protection under the law”. They have bought what was meant to be our government.

    • anticom says:

      The meek will come out of the ashes of modern alpha psychopaths who will kill and eat each other. He who is first will be last and last first.

  8. TEST says:

    As Roman poet Juvenal asked in his Satires 2000 years ago, and STILL not answered, Quis custodiet ipsos custodes? (“Who will guard the guards themselves, or who controls the controllers?”)

    In a world where there is no basis for ethics, other than preference, this will be a disaster. Remember that without absolutes, there can, by DEFINITION, be no final basis for saying anything is intrinsically right or wrong.

    Personally, I believe this is similar to the Tower of Babel – God will not allow man to either destroy himself with extreme knowledge not paired with wisdom, or stupidly try to take the seat of God (remember, the first temptation in the Garden was “you will be like God”… and no, it was NOT sex). So, we could go into another Dark Ages, or it could be that the Lord is getting ready to return.

    I recommend reading this book, “Xenogenesis-Changing Men Into Monsters” by Stephen Quayle.

  10. lolzngiggles says:

    Yeah a little late to be talking about a moratorium on human gene editing since they have already made the “first” 3 person baby.

    It will all go down in a couple of ways imo

    Designer babies which would lead to a GATTACA scenario as the best case scenario

    or where humans have programmed cell deaths or programmed sterility

    along with the possibility of a infectious agent causing mass die offs due to the lack of genetic diversity

  11. TheGuy says:

    And here’s how you get!!!

    1. Population of uber wealthy

    Served by

    2. Cylons.

    AND NO ONE ELSE ALIVE! YAY GO TEAM!

    And they said it was impossible at that one site I used to read… they did the math on “reducing the population to half a billion” within 40 years. It was impossible short of a giant meteor.

    NOT ANYMORE YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Go go human ingenuity!

  12. Traitor Hator says:

    Genetically selective bio weapons? Blue eyes and die? Brown eyes and die? % of skin color? Black hair go bye bye? Red head go die? Blond hair bye? Best coarse of action?

  13. Plan twice, prep once says:

    I’m waiting for gene hackers, to do stuff just for the laugh. The tech is getting easier all the time and cheap.

    Imagine a flu outbreak that results in tens of millions of children being born the following year with prehensile tails, or pointed Spock ears, or Hobit feet, or spots, or cat eyes etc.

  14. anticom says:

    The UN can’t wait to get it’s filthy satanic hands on this bioweapon.

  15. Anonymous says:

    Obviously, the immediate annihilation of the enemy’s capabilities is imperative. Reducing the enemy to the Stone Age and eliminating him is vital for denying him these capabilities.

  16. ronna says:

    To show how ridiculous this all is we have successfully produced a poppy plant that does not have opioid production. It looks like a poppy flower, smells like one, tastes like one, but has no opium sap. This was developed to be spread in Afghanistan to eradicate 90% of the heroin supply of the world. BUT NO! We can’t deny these people their means of earning a living, the left wheedled. So they got the entire program shelved indefinitely, thus keeping the flow of heroin pouring into the world!
    We also have also done the same to produce genetically mutated cocoa plants that would make it impossible to grow cocoa plants that have the basic sap for cocaine. The same wheedlers have blocked spreading the new plant into South America to completely eliminate cocaine producing cocoa plants, which would within 5 years completely eliminate cocaine. These people need the income from selling the cocaine! So a few million people have their lives destroyed from cocaine and heroin use. Who gives a damn! The cash flow is all that counts!

  17. Cricket says:

    There is a verse in the Bible that speaks of great peril to humans.

    The end of all life. I’m not fully convinced it is by nuclear war, but perhaps something more sinister?

  18. How to Serve Man……with fava beans and a nice chianti.
