Apparently there are a group of Harvard scientists who have actually halted the aged process for mice. With the success of this effort in the testing that has been done on the mice it is no wonder that human trials will begin within the next three months or so. Only 3 to 5 years away from being on the market according to Science Daily.
You will also note in that same Science Daily article that NASA is very interested in this drug and the prospect of the upcoming human trials. As they should be… what with needing to travel great distances in the vacuum of space if they plan to make it to places like Mars, or Alpha Centauri. If your trip is going to take a while you are going to need people that can live a while, I guess (leave it to NASA for being the excuse we need for crossing this moral boundary).
But that isn’t the only big thing being talked about right now. I would also like to mention something called the 2045 Singularity (the date that mainstream science thinks man and machine will merge). You can access the cloud with your smart-phone, but just think how “cool” it will be to access the cloud with your mind (if this seems too far fetched, think again). The reason I am mentioning this here is because I feel that it goes together with what currently has NASA so excited (anti-aging mice and the human trials quickly approaching).
Now that I have pointed out these two factors (human trials for anti-aging and the 2045 singularity), I have a few things to say about all of this as a bible believing Christian that happens to also think NASA is 100% fake.
My Ignorant Thoughts
Okay, so here is the thing. If NASA is fake and space travel is not real, then why do they need an anti-aging drug to help them send people into space? Why not just wait for this supposed 2045 machine/man unified consciousness? It’s not like that date is all that far away. Clearly, if man is machine the anti-aging drug will be pointless… right?
So, here is what I think; all of these things sum up Satan’s promise to Eve in Genesis when he said, “you shall be as gods“.
What better way to claim godhood than by being an immortal singularity hive mind. But here is the thing… that isn’t how it will play out, if it plays out at all.
We already have an elite group running things. If you want to be realistic and reach for something more tangible, it seems reasonable to assume that only the elite will be the ones who have access to this magic anti-aging medicine while the rest of us are unwillingly plugged into a remote control, which happens to be in the hands of those same elitists.
16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: 17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Rev 13:16-17 (please note that it says “in” as if suggesting under the skin).
But what do I know? I’m just ignorant.
Space is real… nothing is happening… just go back to sleep… and enjoy your weekends…
Because, heck… it’s not like I will be alive to see all of this nonsense go down anyway. Oh wait… I’ll be in my early 60’s.
