First Genetically Modified Babies Are Born

Screen shot 2013-06-04 at 6.18.59 AM

The world’s first genetically modified humans have been created and born in the United States.

The disclosure yesterday that 30 healthy babies were born is provoking a furious debate about ethics.

So far, two of the babies have been tested and have been found to contain genes from three parents. Genetic fingerprint tests on the one-year- old children confirm that they have inherited DNA from three adults –two women and one man.

Fifteen of the children were born in the past three years as a result of one experimental program at the Institute for Reproductive Medicine and Science of St Barnabas in New Jersey.

    Even the British have enough sense and respect for human life not to get involved anything like this. Sounds like something out of a B rated horror movie. There is no acceptable reason for genetically modifying babies…none. So they were born healthy. What about 5 or 10 years from now? Will these children have problems as they develop? These doctors/scientists are playing God and it is disgusting. No infertile couple needs to go to such extremes to have a child. What kind of parents will they make when they are willing to have their child's genetic makeup changed to something it was never intended to be…cells from three people instead of two. It could have terrible consequences for these children and for society as a whole. This just sickens me and I see it as one more nail in the casket for America.

    Ok here is my question. Who gives life to these babies ? Man can Definitely not give life. Satan cannot give life. Think about it !!!

      God gives life, but can Satan, working through sinful men, corrupt that gift of life turning it into something it was never intended to be? Makes me wonder just what was going on in the time of Noahl Did Satan corrupt the human race back then by causing his demons to have relations with women and thereby bring into exsitence a super strong, corrupted race of humans? Were these super humans causing so much evil on the earth that God wanted to destroy the whole world? Sure sounds like it to me.

      Gen 6:1-7 " And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also [is] flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years. There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare [children] to them, the same [became] mighty men which [were] of old, men of renown. And GOD saw that the wickedness of man [was] great in the earth, and [that] every imagination of the thoughts of his heart [was] only evil continually.And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them."

      The evil of that day had to be very great for God to want to destroy the entire world. Aren't we approaching such a day of evil again? Abortion and also infanticide now taking place at 'clinics', almost universal acceptance of homosexuality as normal. now. Are men becoming so callous to God, setting themselves up as God, worshipping themselves and their science to the entent that Satan is now able to enter in to them and try once again to corrupt the human race, this time by corrupting the gene pool? I think it is possible….
