Human Animal Chimeras…”Extra measures to make sure they don’t breed”

For those of us who have been paying attention to the mixing of genes and genetic modification for years, this isn’t a surprise. There have been clones and human animal mixes being grown for about twenty years. What is important in this article is the push to do this openly and raise them to adulthood. Previously, the story is that the labs doing this have only been gestating these “creations” for up to 28 days and then killing the embryo. That’s what they say, but as horrific as that is, there have been reports that the embryos have not been being killed.

What is important about the following article is that there is a push to allow them to grow to adulthood. The lead “scientist” says they will take extra precautions to make sure the chimeras do not breed when they are adults. It’s becoming a common refrain with this aberrant technology, but again, what could go wrong?

I don’t preach a lot, but I am an unabashed follower of Yeshua the Messiah. If you will study things out and look to “extra biblical scripturally endorsed” texts, such as the Book of Enoch (the first book as two and three are believed to be frauds and aren’t referenced in the other scriptures) you might find the answer to what Yeshua was referencing when He said, “As in the days of Noah…” I think He was talking about the genetic alteration of Yah’s creation by the intermingling of fallen ones with humans and animals. Giants, satyrs, centaurs, minotaurs, and maybe even mermaids. Genetic pollution, if you will.

I believe this is the reason for the Flood and also for Yah’s instructions to the Israelites to completely wipe out many of the “ites” they came across when they were entering the Promised Land. He didn’t instruct them to annihilate every single group they came across, but a lot of them. He didn’t want the genetic pollution to get into His set-apart people or their animals.

Today, we have spider goats, reports of humanzees, human genes in cattle, pigs with cow and mice genes, corn, soy, cotton, and beets with bacteria and the disgusting eel fish and salmon mix among others. And now, the people creating these chimeras want to grow them to adulthood publicly.

My contention is, that while actual science is really cool and very interesting, the arrogance of man and corporations of believing that when they discover something, they understand everything about it, we are literally mutating the Creation in ways we haven’t yet begun to understand. The fact that they only discovered the endocannaboid system in 1992 is evidence of that. Also epigenetics is just beginning to be understood.

In short, just because you can do something does not, in anyway, mean that you should. But that never stopped “science”.

Here is the article responsible for spawning the dissertation:

In Search For Cures, Scientists Create Embryos That Are Both Animal And Human

By Rob Stein

A handful of scientists around the United States are trying to do something that some people find disturbing: make embryos that are part human, part animal.

The researchers hope these embryos, known as chimeras, could eventually help save the lives of people with a wide range of diseases.

One way would be to use chimera embryos to create better animal models to study how human diseases happen and how they progress.

Perhaps the boldest hope is to create farm animals that have human organs that could be transplanted into terminally ill patients.

But some scientists and bioethicists worry the creation of these interspecies embryos crosses the line. “You’re getting into unsettling ground that I think is damaging to our sense of humanity,” says Stuart Newman, a professor of cell biology and anatomy at the New York Medical College.

The experiments are so sensitive that the National Institutes of Health has imposed a moratorium on funding them while officials explore the ethical issues they raise.

Nevertheless, a small number of researchers are pursuing the work with alternative funding. They hope the results will persuade the NIH to lift the moratorium.

“We’re not trying to make a chimera just because we want to see some kind of monstrous creature,” says Pablo Ross, a reproductive biologist at the University of California, Davis. “We’re doing this for a biomedical purpose.”

The NIH is expected to announce soon how it plans to handle requests for funding.

Recently, Ross agreed to let me visit his lab for an unusual look at his research. During the visit, Ross demonstrated how he is trying to create a pancreas that theoretically could be transplanted into a patient with diabetes.

The first step involves using new gene-editing techniques to remove the gene that pig embryos need to make a pancreas.

Working under an elaborate microscope, Ross makes a small hole in the embryo’s outer membrane with a laser. Next, he injects a molecule synthesized in the laboratory to home in and delete the pancreas gene inside. (In separate experiments, he has done this to sheep embryos, too.)

After the embryos have had their DNA edited this way, Ross creates another hole in the membrane so he can inject human induced pluripotent stem cells, or iPS for short, into the pig embryos.

Like human embryonic stem cells, iPS cells can turn into any kind of cell or tissue in the body. The researchers’ hope is that the human stem cells will take advantage of the void in the embryo to start forming a human pancreas.

Because iPS cells can be made from any adult’s skin cells, any organs they form would match the patient who needs the transplant, vastly reducing the risk that the body would reject the new organ.

But for the embryo to develop and produce an organ, Ross has to put the chimera embryos into the wombs of adult pigs. That involves a surgical procedure, which is performed in a large operating room across the street from Ross’s lab.

The day Ross opened his lab to me, a surgical team was anesthetizing an adult female pig so surgeons could make an incision to get access to its uterus.

Ross then rushed over with a special syringe filled with chimera embryos. He injected 25 embryos into each side of the animal’s uterus. The procedure took about an hour. He repeated the process on a second pig.

Every time Ross does this, he then waits a few weeks to allow the embryos to develop to their 28th day — a time when primitive structures such as organs start to form.

Ross then retrieves the chimeric embryos to dissect them so he can see what the human stem cells are doing inside. He examines whether the human stem cells have started to form a pancreas, and whether they have begun making any other types of tissues.

The uncertainty is part of what makes the work so controversial. Ross and other scientists conducting these experiments can’t know exactly where the human stem cells will go. Ross hopes they’ll only grow a human pancreas. But they could go elsewhere, such as to the brain.

“If you have pigs with partly human brains you would have animals that might actually have consciousness like a human,” Newman says. “It might have human-type needs. We don’t really know.”

That possibility raises new questions about the morality of using the animals for experimentation. Another concern is that the stem cells could form human sperm and human eggs in the chimeras.

“If a male chimeric pig mated with a female chimeric pig, the result could be a human fetus developing in the uterus of that female chimera,” Newman says. Another possibility is the animals could give birth to some kind of part-human, part-pig creature.

“One of the concerns that a lot of people have is that there’s something sacrosanct about what it means to be human expressed in our DNA,” says Jason Robert, a bioethicist at Arizona State University. “And that by inserting that into other animals and giving those other animals potentially some of the capacities of humans that this could be a kind of violation — a kind of, maybe, even a playing God.”

Ross defends what his work. “I don’t consider that we’re playing God or even close to that,” Ross says. “We’re just trying to use the technologies that we have developed to improve peoples’ life.”

Still, Ross acknowledges the concerns. So he’s moving very carefully, he says. For example, he’s only letting the chimera embryos develop for 28 days. At that point, he removes the embryos and dissects them.

If he discovers the stem cells are going to the wrong places in the embryos, he says he can take steps to stop that from happening. In addition, he’d make sure adult chimeras are never allowed to mate, he says.

“We’re very aware and sensitive to the ethical concerns,” he says. “One of the reasons we’re doing this research the way we’re doing it is because we want to provide scientific information to inform those concerns.”

Ross is working with Juan Carlos Izpisua Belmonte from the Salk Intitute for Biological Studies in La Jolla, Calif., and Hiromitsu Nakauchi at Stanford University. Daniel Garry of the University of Minnesota and colleagues are conducting similar work. The research is funded in part by the Defense Department and the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM).

    Interesting DH. I have always given a lot of credibility to those researchers such as Steve Qualye, who talk of interbreeding of woman and angels. He retells stories such as Sodom and Gomorrah in the context of them talking about Angels, not men. I have even heard the commandment about adultery being mistranslated, or interpreted, and that it is a commandment to not have sex with angels.

    There is a guy on YouTube that has a similar take:
