One of the most dangerous experiments that mankind has ever embarked upon is DARPA’s desire for gene drive technology. 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.
According to Sputnik News, and as previously reported by SHTFPlan, the United States highly-secretive and advanced military research body DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) announced that it will invest tens of millions of dollars into genetic extinction research. While the official aim of this research is said to be fighting harmful insects, like mosquitos which carry Malaria, there are significantly darker implications and speculations surrounding the possible use of such a tool.
Joe Joseph of The Daily Sheeple said a quick Google search would give you enough information to let you know how horrific this kind of technology can be. “…and you’ll find it fascinating just at how unbelievable a weapon this could be, how unintentionally mistakes can be made that can cause irreversible damage…irreparable damage…to the human race. And I mean, FAST!” Joseph said. “A gene drive…if let’s just say there’s a mistake, you could feasibly wipe out the human race in a very very short period of time. It’s an unbelievable tool at the disposal of madmen.”
Emails released under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), suggest that the U.S.’s uber-secretive military body, DARPA, has become the world’s largest funder of this “gene drive” research.
Silvia Ribeiro, Latin America director of the ETC Group, an international organization dedicated to the conservation and sustainable advancement of cultural and ecological diversity and human rights, said: “When it is developed under an umbrella of a military research, you get a clear notion that there can be a dual purpose of this research.”
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.” –SHTFPlan
Humanity is known for making mistakes, but we can’t come back from an extinction of our own making. “You can call it a ‘tool’ all day, [but] it’s a weapon,” says Joseph.
what is so great about the human race?
What’s great is that we are made in the image of God. Nevertheless, we are grotesquely fallen as well (called original sin in the old days, which has ZERO to do with sex, of course). Verduin called man a “noble ruin.” Pretty good description. And man left to his own devices, without input from God, will always destroy others, and then himself.
So God made an idol?
Adam was a clone(Image and Likeness) of Jesus.
Jesus contains the Image and Likeness of God called the Holy Spirit.
Enjoy your sex, humanist.
Do you know what an idol is?
gandhi, they are great at destroying everything! Always have been and always will be…
Gandhi; “They are great at destroying everything! Always have been and always will be….”
You beg the simple question – “and just what species are you?”. Personally, I happen to think my species – humanity – is a pretty damned good try at being something awfully special. Only one I know of that, should we not blow ourselves back to the Jurassic, have a shot at getting the hell off this planet and fulfilling what should be our destiny. I’m originally from Kansas. Motto – ad astra per asperum. Through hardships to the stars. Grew up with that, still believe it.
Keep dreaming. Defiling one planet isn’t enough?
It doesn’t require DARPA’s billions of dollars of human destroying bugs but there has been worse mass killing bugs around for centuries. We named them today “biological threats”. There are hundreds of such bug sundaes around in Israeli, American, Russian, and other country’s arsenals that can do worse than this little gizmo bug! But there’s no fun in such silent killings! For the psychopaths like Bush, Nut’n’yahoo and others like them, they wanna enjoy the game of men fighting men as their game of the Gladiators where these sick motherf..rs wanna sit on their ivory towers seeing this human carnage in such massive scale that they will be in position to start claiming the titles of bigger real estate with all its treasures so they can hoard more wealth. These greedy sons of whores will not give up unless people identify them and give them the real Robin Hood treatments, one at a time, and after long sufferings!
kudos sir ! bravo !
They are not only sons of whores, daughters of whores too I bet.
Our species was meant to be special, or it would not have been created in God’s image.
Therein lies the clue about what we are, IMO.
What do you think you are Hmmm, and you want everyone else gone you go first.
“what is so great about the human race
God’s chosen one is among them.
Combine the brightest minds, virtual unlimited resources, an amoral overseer who’s creed is the ends justify the means along with some black swan chaos for spice and humanity has a recipe for disaster. Its actually amazing that we made it this long.
Absolutely BRILLIANT post, Kev. Nice work. How we made it this long is, in a word, Providence and prevenient grace, but that’s a story for another day.
That Hideous Strength by CS Lewis predicted all this in a fictional form over half a century ago. Issue is, if in fact there is a God, and a spiritual world, these people are messing with stuff (macrobes in the book) far, far, FAR beyond their ken.
The combined posts of the couple of you could actually, maybe, be the inspiration for another great work of literature…
DARPA Can Exterminate Humanity: ‘You Could Feasibly WIPE OUT The Human Race’
Only GOD can do this!!!! Last time I looked DARPA isn’t GOD!
DARPA is playing at God.
May His mighty hand intervene.
Amen, Grand. Cf. That Hideous Strength, by CS Lewis on exactly this topic
Oh my, what could possibly go wrong? ?
So which would you rather have:
1. Mass starvation.
2. Vaporized by an atom bomb.
3. Genetically modified mosquito bites you and you die.
4. Dozens of other horrible ways to be killed.
One of these will come to be.
The genetic modification is not that likely. We already have that tech and it has not been used! We developed a genetically modified poppy plant (source of opium) that has no opium sap. It was to be spread across Afghanistan to eliminate 90% of all the heroin in the world. But political correctness decided we could not take the natives major source of income and eliminate it. So we instead let millions rot and die of heroin addiction.
Uhhh, wrong! We took over the opium trade to fund black ops. Why do you think we are over there guarding it? Besides, what business is it of yours to tell someone else what they can do with their body? The road to hell is paved with good intentions ya know.
If heroin is fetching such exorbitant prices on the world market, how come those agriculturists have turned into millionaires yet?
They can as well switch to cultivating vegetables, wheat, or maize, I don’t think it would hurt them.
I submit that the genie is already out of the bottle.
Once we can manipulate DNA which can be done by relatively
unsophisticated Labs, you can do all sorts of intended and un-intended damage.
You’d better bet many other governments, and private firms
are manipulating organisms genetically to make new “things”
GMO foodstufs or the new Chinese “super rice” for example.
The trick is to understand ALL the impacts of your new creation.
That is where I’d trust DARPA, even if they weaponized a life-form, they’d be smart enough to also create a way to control or eliminate the threat, least it be used against it’s creators.
The worry is the martyrs of the world, such as the Moslems who believe that dying in Jihad guarantees a ticket to heaven.
Or Buddhists like Pol Pot that believed killing “useless” people gives the person a chance to return and do a better job in another life.
I kinda like that last line lol.
Not possible. Cuz Chinese would have wiped you out by now.
Can there be genetic targeting of bolsheviks and communists? Or is that considered something verboten?
They aren’t gene specific people.
The research that could do us the most good but that is the most dangerous would be in helping people to learn more quickly and solve problems more rapidly. Raising the mental abilities of people who seem set on the destruction of humanity. Choose any scientific field. What was known about it forty years ago might require only one textbook. Today, it takes a number of books, some like a set of encyclopedias (remember those?). Our doom comes when all of the would-be know-it-alls actually do know it all and can use it!
DARPA’s agenda is the same as Nimrod: the unification of all nations under one language, one chief: Antéchrist!! … claiming this is the way to happiness and peace!!!
I sure hope they under stand that they live on the same planet as the rest of us.
It may take a while for that to sink in.
This could be used in other, similarly inhuman ways. E.g. homosexuals have recently become more “gene specific” than they were previously – wasn’t there a “homosexual gene” discovered not long ago?
Suppose this gene has two alleles, one predisposing for homosexuality and the other for the “normal” variety? Either of these would make all of us “gene specific”.
The United States Army has been doing this for centuries. Why would they stop now?
Without DARPA we wouldn’t be able to keep up with the strategic developments of our enemies. Kinda NEED them. Unless the prepper community is going to cobble together an new Arsenal of Democracy from products on the supermarket shelves…
The scriptures will be fulfilled. Man cannot contravene prophecy.
Looks like Bible prophecy is all coming true where it says, “no flesh would survive….”
