Human and animal hybrids are to be developed in embryo form in Japan after the government approved controversial stem-cell research.
Remember all those crazy, nutty conspiracy theorists like Alex Jones who warned about the coming ‘pig men’ and ‘human animal chimeras’? Well, Alex Jones is a nut, and is wrong about a whole lot of things, but he was right about this one. Transhumanism is a thing, and it’s coming soon to a theater near you, only in real life and not on the screen. The ‘pig man’ from Seinfeld may well turn out to be more prophecy than comedy.
“And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech.” Genesis 11:6,7 (KJV)
God confounded the language of the people at the Tower of Babel because He did not want them discovering advanced technological feats until the time was right, but that was then and this is now. Now being the end times where man will ‘soar to new heights’ in a God-rejecting world, and will be convinced right up to the moment of the Second Coming that they were ‘smarter than the bible’. As God removes His protective hand and prepares this world for judgment, dazzling new ‘scientific advances’ like human-animal hybrids will be par for the course.
You know how you always wished your pet could talk? It’s going to do that and a whole lot more before Judgment Day.
Human-animal hybrids to be developed in Japan after ban controversially lifted
FROM THE INDEPENDENT UK: Human cells will be grown in rat and mouse embryos, then brought to term in a surrogate animal, as part of experiments set to be carried out at the University of Tokyo.
Supporters say the work – led by renowned geneticist Hiromitsu Nakauchi – could be a vital first step towards eventually growing organs that can then be transplanted into people in need. But opponents have raised concerns that scientists are playing God.
They worry the human cells could stray beyond the targeted organs into other areas of the animal, effectively creating a creature that is part animal, part person. For that reason, such prolonged experimentation has been effectively banned or gone unfinanced across the world in recent years.

In Japan itself, scientists were forbidden from going beyond a 14-day growth period. But those laws were relaxed in March when the country’s education and science ministry issued new guidelines saying such creations could now be brought to term.
Now, Dr Nakauchi’s application to experiment is the first to be approved under that new framework.
“We don’t expect to create human organs immediately, but this allows us to advance our research based upon the know-how we have gained up to this point,” he told the Asahi Shimbun newspaper.
He added that he planned to proceed slowly, and will not attempt to bring any hybrid embryos to term for some years, rather growing the hybrid mouse embryos to 14.5 days, when the animal’s organs are mostly formed, and the hybrid rat embryos to 15.5 days. Such caution was welcomed by bioethicists in the country.
“It is good to proceed with caution,” said Tetsuya Ishii, science-policy researcher at Hokkaido University in Sapporo. “It will make it possible to have a dialogue with the public, which is feeling anxious and has concerns.” READ MORE
