Monster Madness of Our Own Making: Human-Animal Hybrids

Prophecy Sign:  Increased Knowledge - Genetic Manipulation



Like kids with a chemical set, scientists can't wait to mix a little of this and a little of that to see just what might happen.  The only difference, is that scientists are mixing the species rather than a bunch of chemicals.  God has warned that to corrupt his creation will lead to judgement.  
Both the book of Genesis and the extra biblical historical book of Jasher record such events happening pre-flood which then caused God to judge the world.   He will do so again.

The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth. Genesis 6:11-12 KJV

Quote from the extra biblical book of Jasher:
And their judges and rulers went to the daughters of men and took their wives by force from their husbands according to their choice, and the sons of men in those days took from the cattle of the earth, the beasts of the field and the fowls of the air, and taught the mixture of animals of one species with the other, in order therewith to provoke the Lord; and God saw the whole earth and it was corrupt, for all flesh had corrupted its ways upon earth, all men and all animals. Book of Jasher 4:18

Monster Madness of Our Own Making: Human-Animal Hybrids
In one of this summer’s most-awaited novels, “The City of Mirrors,” author Justin Cronin completes his unlikely literary trilogy about a world overrun by vampire-like creatures he dubs “virals.”  Unlike Bram Stoker’s creation, the disaster unleashed by his monsters is entirely man-made. Men, seeking to “play God,” created monstrous hybrids they could never hope to control, with disastrous but completely predictable results. While Cronin’s work is fiction, its themes ring all too true. 
As one colleague of mine put it, the book reads like a “warning shot across our bow.”  As if to prove Cronin and my colleague right, a recent story proved that the impulse to “play God” isn’t limited to the fiction segment of the best-seller list. Just in the last few months, several news stories have described how scientists are creating embryos that are part human and part animal.

After Frankenswine ... the brave new world of human-animal hybrids
Scientists think they have found a way to grow human organs – the pancreas, the liver, the kidneys – in pigs. The announcement has triggered a wave of both praise, criticism, revulsion and support. While some back the research, citing the critical shortage in organ donors, there are others who are horrified by the science. What most troubles them is that these organ-incubating pigs will be chimeras - creatures with the DNA of two species - created by the injection of human stem cells into pig embryos. Though these pigs - inevitably called Frankenswine - should look and behave like normal farmyard pigs, inside them the pancreas will be made of only human cells.
