Prophecy Sign: Increased Knowledge
The bible contains some very science fiction like prophecies. For instance, a demonic army unleashed from the abyss of earth, people seeking death but not finding it, and an image of the Antichrist that actually has the ability to speak and can order the deaths of millions who refuse to take a mark. Only those people alive during the coming Tribulation period will see just what all these prophecies will become and how they will be fulfilled. One thing is clear, we are at a point in human history when knowledge is increasing exponentially, as can be seen in the various article below.
But you, Daniel, keep this prophecy a secret; seal up the book until the time of the end, when many will rush here and there, and knowledge will increase. Daniel 12:4 NIV
Scientists Say They Can Recreate Living Dinosaurs Within the Next 5 Years
Don’t we already know how this movie’s going to end? In a potentially terrifying case of life imitating art, the renowned paleontologist who served as the inspiration for Jurassic Parkprotagonist Dr. Alan Grant is spearheading genetic research that could engineer dinosaurs back into existence within the next five to 10 years, he says. While Dr. Jack Horner, who has consulted on all four Jurassic films, initially believed the key to recreating the prehistoric creatures lied in working with ancient DNA strands, further study about DNA degradation over time has since ruled out that possibility. Instead, a group of scientists at Harvard and Yale have turned their eye to -- wait for it -- the modern-day chicken.

10 Implausible Technologies From Fiction That Are On Their Way
These are wildly far-out technologies we never really expected to see in real life that nevertheless may soon be upon us, whether they are good ideas or not (spoiler: mostly not).

Russia aims to develop 'teleportation' in 20 years
It’s a question that physicists, philosophers, and science fiction writers have pondered for decades: how to travel from one place to another without travelling through the space in between. Now a Kremlin-backed research program is seeking to make the teleportation technology behind Captain Kirk’s transporter a reality. A proposed multi-trillion pound strategic development program drawn up for Vladimir Putin would seek to develop teleportation by 2035. "It sounds fantastical today, but there have been successful experiments at Stanford at the molecular level," Alexander Galitsky, a prominent investor in the country's technology sector, told Russia's Kommersant daily on Wednesday. "Much of the tech we have today was drawn from science fiction films 20 years ago."

First human CRISPR trial given go-ahead: your questions answered
Immune cells called T-cells will be taken from people with specific forms of three kinds of tumours – melanoma, sarcoma and myeloma. An entirely new gene will be added to these T-cells, for a receptor that binds to a protein called NY‐ES0‐1, which is found on many kinds of tumour cells. Equipped with this new receptor, the T-cells will seek out and destroy tumour cells. Many reports state that the gene for this new T-cell receptor will be added using CRISPR genome editing, but this is not the case. In fact, a harmless virus will be used to add the gene. CRISPR, on the other hand, will be used to destroy the existing T-cell receptor to make the altered cells focus on targeting tumours instead of targeting other bits of foreign DNA or viruses. Since two genes code for this receptor, this involves disabling two genes.
