Genetic engineering takes steps towards building superhumans

Prophecy Sign:  Increased knowledge - Transhumanism and the Mark of the Beast

Between the genetic revolution and the technological revolution, mankind will soon have the ability to become Transhuman;  Something resembling a human cyborg, (technology), or a human hybrid, (genetics).  We suspect the future 'mark of the Beast' has much to do with the current genetic revolution, and this mark will be Satan's way of corrupting the image of God, (the human genetic code), by inserting his own corruption, (the mark), into the mix.

Is this why the bible makes clear that anyone who takes the Antichrists 'mark', will not be granted any mercy and will suffer full penalty of judgement?  The person taking the future 'mark' will have become unredeemable in the sense that they are no longer fully human.

A third angel followed them and said in a loud voice: “If anyone worships the beast and its image and receives its mark on their forehead or on their hand,  they, too, will drink the wine of God’s fury, which has been poured full strength into the cup of his wrath. Revelation 14:9-10 NIV

Genetic engineering takes steps towards building superhumans
A paper recently released by Stephen Hsu, a professor of theoretical physics at Michigan State University, asserts that by tweaking our genomes, we could make humans drastically smarter. He explained that by modifying gene variants, human intelligence could be increased to 10 times what it is now. The paper has inspired renewed discussion in the academic community around the issue of genetic modification and how it might be used to give people ‘superhuman’ powers.
Gene editing tools like CRISPR — clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats which take advantage of natural DNA repair machinery to engineer the genome — might mean that scientists are that much closer to giving humans supernatural healing or amplifying the abilities that we already have.
