Was There an 8th Day of Creation?

Posted in 02 : The Truth Is Out There... with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on 03/12/2011 by timenolonger

For most who read and believe scripture, the account of creation in Genesis is understood to have taken place in six days, the seventh day being that one which was set apart as a day of rest from all that YHWH made.

There are, however, some who do not believe that creation ceased on day six, but proceeded to day eight on which Adam, who is normally thought of as the first man, was created.

Those who have this view do not consider Adam and Eve to have been the first humans on Earth, but rather believe that those who were made on day six were a separate creation of human/ humanoid beings.

Often it is explained in terms of these first ones having been all the various races minus that one which was chosen to bring forth Messiah, who was Adam, created on day eight.

It would not be wise to choose either view simply on how the information impresses one at first thought.

Neither adhering to the more well accepted sixth day creation because of tradition, nor adopting the eight day view because of its novelty are good foundations for a clear answer.

Perhaps many who choose either one, having encountered both, do so on the grounds of one of those two reasons, but all interpretation should be tested thoroughly.

Support for the belief in an eighth day creation for Adam are often the following:

1. There is a clear distinction in the telling of the sixth day “humans” and the later telling of the creation of Adam. (Genesis 1 and Genesis 2)

2. The first people were created “in His image” both male and female, rather than Adam who was created alone (and androgynous) and later had a wife made for him out of his own flesh.

3. The first people were created, while Adam was “formed” out of the ground

4. There is a correlation between the first people created and the “beast of the earth” created on the sixth day.

5. The creation of the “eighth day” is evident in the pattern for all of human history – 7,000 years followed by the “eighth day” of the new creation.

6. The “breath of life” breathed into Adam is synonymous with a soul or spirit which the first created people did not have. The first people had YHWH’s likeness, the second had His spirit.

7. Cain mentioned “everyone” who found him would kill him for his crime against Abel and the only explanation for those others is that there were people created prior to Adam and Eve.

8. Cain found a wife and this wife must have been one of those of the people who had been made before Adam and Eve.

Knowing whether or not these points are a good support for the theory means addressing each one in the context of scripture, demanding that scripture make a probable, not just possible case for it.

The same is true of the conventional understanding. His word is not given in a way that requires us to guess. In the end, all correct interpretations will be those which add up to the simplest and most comprehensible answer according to literal language.

One Act or Two?

In Genesis chapter 1 there is a chronological description of creation, describing each day and what was made on that day. The first day describes the creation of the Earth, light, day and night. On the second day was the creation of the firmament of heaven. On the third day, dry land was made to appear and created plant life. On day four were the luminaries of heaven made, the stars, sun and moon. On day five were made sea creatures and birds. On day six, land animals were made, reptiles, mammals and finally people.

“Then ‘Elohiym said, “Let the earth bring forth the living creature according to its kind. Cattle and creeping things and beasts of the earth according to its kind,” and it was so.

And ‘Elohiym made the beast of the earth according to its kind, cattle according to its kind, and everything that creeps on the earth according to its kind, and ‘Elohiym saw that it was good.

Then ‘Elohiym said, “Let Us make mankind in Our image, according to Our likeness. Let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”

So ‘Elohiym created the man in His image, in the image of ‘Elohiym He created him, male and female He created them.”

– Genesis 1:24-27

The seventh day is then set apart for rest from all these things YHWH made, but after the description of the seventh day comes another telling of the creation of humans.

“And Yahuwah ‘Elohiym formed the man of the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life and the man became a living creature.

Yahuwah ‘Elohiym planted a garden eastward in ‘Eden and there He put the man whom He had formed”.

– Genesis 2:7, 8

Is this a continuation of the account proceeding in chronological order to the eighth day? There are two points which seriously hinder this being probable.

All other days described before this are done in such a precise way as to pointedly mention the beginning and ending of each “the evening and the morning” as in: “So the evening and the morning were Day One.”, also giving each day aclear number.

This is absent for an eighth day. There is no mention of an evening and a morning encompassing a certain day on which this occurred, nor is there any mention of “day eight”.

The second hindrance is an even more difficult one to justify. The proclamation of the end of the sixth day reads like this:

Thus the heavens and the earth and all (kol: whole, all, any every) the host of them were finished (kalah: end, to be finished, ceased). – Genesis 2:1

There is a clear statement that all things had been made at this point and that following this was cessation from the act of creation.

In His Image: Created or Formed?

Is there an indication that the first account describes a simultaneous “creation” of man and woman while the second describes a process of “forming” Adam alone from the clay?

The first account reads as follows:

“So ‘Elohiym created (bara: create) the man (adam) in His image, in the image of ‘Elohiym He created him, male and female He created (bara:create) them.”

– Genesis 1:27

Here there is the word “bara” which is pointed out as differing from the word used in the “forming” of Adam in Genesis 2:

“And Yahuwah ‘Elohiym formed (yatsar: mold, squeeze) the man (adam) of the dust of the ground”

– Genesis 2:7

If there is a point being made here referencing a different mode of creation employed between the first and second humans, it should by all means remain consistent. It is, however, not the case.

In Genesis 4 is the account of the birth of Seth, who is born in replacement of the slain Abel. We must be assured that Seth was the son of Adam and Eve, this being repeated throughout scripture many times, not the son of an earlier creation of humans.

Following this account is the use of the word “bara” (create) in reference to Adam and Eve as well as a reference to their creation “in His image”.

“And ‘Adam knew his wife again and she bare a son and called his name Sheth, “For ‘Elohiym,” she said, “has appointed me another seed instead of ‘Hebel whom Qayin slew.”

And to Sheth, to him also there was born a son and he called his name ‘Enowsh. Then men began to call upon the name of Yahuwah.

This is the book of the generations of man (adam) in the day that ‘Elohiym created mankind.

In the likeness of ‘Elohiym He made him, male and female He created (bara) them and blessed them and called their name ‘Adam in the day when they were created.”

– Genesis 4: 25, 26, Genesis 5:1, 2

Beast of the Earth connected to First Humans?

It is often believed among those who support an 8th day creation that the description of the creation of the “beast of the Earth” in Genesis is synonymous with those first humans created prior to Adam. This is also, many times, connected with the Beast of the Earth mentioned in Revelation.

Scripture gives the account of the creation of the “beast of the Earth” in Genesis like this:

“And ‘Elohiym made the beast (chay: life,living) of the earth according to its kind, cattle (behemah) according to its kind, and everything that creeps (remes:reptile) on the earth according to its kind, and ‘Elohiym saw that it was good. .”

– Genesis 1:25

There is perhaps little to be said of this as any connection to the creation of human or humanlike creatures. The word “chay” preceding a list of animals which were made on the sixth day could only logically be a collective statement before a more detailed list. It is not a word which is specific to any certain sort of living creature.

Where this connection is usually made, it is included within a doctrine that strongly supports the idea of a superior race and lesser peoples who are made fundamentally different by the manner of their creation.

It is often found in Christian identity and British Israelism cults and follows the ages old tradition of an idea which began in the rulership of nephilim over weaker humans.

Turned upside down, this idea is given a Christian face with which to tempt the pride of believers and alienate various ethnic groups from Christianity.

Is the Future New Heaven and Earth created on an “eighth day”?

It is said that one day is equal to a thousand years in the eyes of YHWH and though the precise days of creation are given in terms of 24 hour intervals, the whole of human history might be sensibly mapped out over a week of millennia.

It is completed, therefor, in the same time construct as the act of creation. It is theorized that if Adam was the new creation of the eighth day, his creation coincides with the new heaven and new earth to be created after the thousand year Sabbath of Messiah’s reign.

The difficulty with this idea is that the model we have been given to observe has no day eight. We are shown a seven day cycle, the last day of which is Sabbath and the following day is not day eight, but day one.

The concept of a day eight in the cycle is only applicable within an occult context where there is an emphasis on day eight being the day of the phoenix, the rebirth, the new age.

Sabbath, by it’s very nature, is special because it is the final touch on creation, it is the moment where the labors are enjoyed instead of toiled over, it is the sum reward of all things worked for.

When the millennial reign of Messiah ends, we should not expect and eternal rotation of the same patterns of time we now have. By being a new creation, even time itself will not be measurable by any present concept of it, that also, will be new. There can be no day eight in a new creation as eight proceeds from the prior series of numbers1-7 and is not, by definition, new.

Did Elohim impart His spirit to Adam but not to the first humans?

In Genesis 1:26 it is said that “man” is made in His image:

“Then ‘Elohiym said, “Let Us make mankind in Our image, according to Our likeness. Let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”

– Genesis 1:26

The later account describes the formation of Adam and how he became a living being:

“And Yahuwah ‘Elohiym formed the man of the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life and the man became a living creature.”

– Genesis 2:7

It is believed by many who see these as separate creations that this describes the difference between those first humans and Adam. While the first received the physical likeness of their maker, the second received His Spirit, indicated by the words “breath of life”.

The phrase “breath of life” and “living soul” is understood in this belief to refer to life in a spiritual or eternal sense. The words themselves, though, do not indicate a special or eternal sort of life which was exclusively given to Adam, but rather an animating force which is applicable to all things which live and breathe.

“And Yahuwah ‘Elohiym formed (yatsar: mold, squeeze) the man (adam) of the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath (n’shamah: puff, wind, breath) of life (chay:life,living) and the man (adam) became a living (chay) soul (nephesh: breathing, living creature).

Yahuwah ‘Elohiym planted a garden eastward in ‘Eden and there He put the man (adam) whom He had formed (yatsar).”

– Genesis 2:7,8

Here “chay” is used, just as it is used earlier in Genesis to describe the sort of life which animals have. The word “nephesh”, which is often translated as “soul” cannot be understood in the sense of what people normally think of as a soul. It, also, is used to describe a creature, any creature, who is living and breathing as shown here:

“So ‘Elohiym created great sea creatures and every living thing (nephesh) that moves, with which the waters abounded according to their kind, and every winged bird according to its kind, and ‘Elohiym saw that it was good.”

– Genesis 1:21

Was the “everyone” Cain was afraid of an indication of multitudes of humans made before Adam?

Cain made this well known statement when he was cursed by YHWH to become a vagabond for the murder of his brother:

“And Qayin said to Yahuwah, “My punishment is greater than I can bear!
Surely You have driven me out this day from the face of the ground.

I shall be hidden from Your face. I shall be a fugitive and a vagabond on the earth and it will happen that anyone who finds me will kill me.”

– Genesis 4:13, 14

Anyone or “every one”, as it is given in the KJV, is seen as indicating a great number of people. That indication is not literally present, but thought to implied by the way it is often used in the context of the English language.

The word is translated from “kol” which properly means, any, all or every. It does not indicate a number, either few or many, but simply describes any or every of whatever certain group is in question. It would make as much sense if Adam and Eve were the only two others as much as it would if there were multitudes of others.

Jubilees is a helpful text in considering the theory of the eighth day creation as a whole and it gives a good idea of how many people were on earth as produced through Adam and Eve at the time of this event.

Without including possible grandchildren, there would have been approximately eleven children of Adam and Eve alive at the time conservatively. All of these would perhaps feel justified in seeking due vengeance for their brother’s murder.

“And in the third week in the second jubilee she gave birth to Cain, and in the fourth she gave birth to Abel, and in the fifth she gave birth to her daughter Âwân.

And in the first (year) of the third jubilee, Cain slew Abel because (God) accepted the sacrifice of Abel, and did not accept the offering of Cain”

– Jubilees 4:1, 2

Where did Cain find a wife?

It is often pointed out that Cain could not have gotten a wife anywhere if there had not been “other” humans present who were not of his own parents. There is no reason to assume this, however.

The command against incest had not yet been given, and for a good reason, all who were available for marriage in the beginnings were siblings. Jubilees also offers insight to Cain’s wife:

“And Cain took ’Âwân his sister to be his wife and she bare him Enoch at the close of the fourth jubilee. And in the first year of the first week of the fifth jubilee, houses were built on the earth, and Cain built a city, and called its name after the name of his son Enoch.”

– Jubilees 4:9

The introduction of the theory of two creations of mankind is an important indicator of the motive, reasoning and philosophy behind it.

If it were intended as the interpretation we should receive from His word, its teaching should bear the fruit of that and be identifiable in both ancient Judaism (before Babylon) as well as the early Christian church.

Where it has sprung up, though is not in either of these places, but in the mind of a Jewish man who lived in Alexandria and who was much more a student of Greek pagan philosophy than Judaism.

Philo of Alexandria was known for his writings which attempted to meld together traditional Judaism and Greek philosophy.

It is an attempt which is not unlike the goal the Catholic church worked toward in melding together Christianity and pagan religious systems.

He interpreted nothing in scripture as literally true, but believed in a symbolic and allegoric interpretation which in essence means nothing, as no symbol is meaningful without a clear object or truth which it symbolizes.

If YHWH meant to give us riddles which only a few could understand, why then can we easily recognize the message present in His word that demonstrates how He uses simplicity and lowliness rather than worldly wisdom and high estate?

“Out of the mouth of babes and nursing infants You have ordained strength because of Your enemies that You may silence the enemy and the avenger”.

-Psalm 8:2

Philo sought to”reveal” a cryptic and hidden meaning in the bible which was not there, the same snare which continually draws believers, even today, down a path of speculation which inevitably draws ever nearer a pagan religious system and away from a truth YHWH plainly gave.

One of these cryptic meanings he revealed to his followers was the theory of an eighth day creation, stating that the first men were made in a perishable physical image of their maker but the second were created as creatures with His spirit.

The very theory that makes it’s appearance in the beliefs of many seeking Christians today originated in a man who taught concepts which were derived out of Greek Mystery Religions.

We have a Creator who has given us a perfect representation of truth in a most logical, most common sense way. and I have never known anything written to have made as much sense as His word does when read just as it reads.

It is the persistent Author of Confusion, Satan, who seeks to make what was simple into something complicated, knotted and difficult to follow. There might be no better general rule of reading His word than “if it is not said, it was not meant.”.

Of Serpent Seeds and Biased Doctrines: What is the Truth of It?

Posted in 03 : The Dragon with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on 08/19/2010 by timenolonger

The Shepherds Chapel… Christian Identity… Serpent Seed Doctrine. These concepts have attracted a lot of people in the recent years.

The greater familiarity with the Book of Enoch which has come about recently, has been piggybacked by theology like that of Arnold Murray and his brand of doctrine surrounding the intermingling of human and angelic kind.

The events concerning the nephilim and their fathers, the pre-flood history of the world as told in 1 Enoch, are subject matters which comprise a starting point to a solid thread of evidence throughout the canon.

There is certainly a great deal of discomfort involved for many Christians in coming to terms with the idea of human and angelic co-mingling, and of offspring of that sort of union.

All discomfort aside… the foundation of support for it is unyielding scripturally.

The pitfalls for those who come across this information in their early walks in faith, when their spiritual maturity has yet to develop, are certainly out there.

The Serpent Seed doctrine does an excellent job of filling a position of look-a-like theology with subject matters such as nephilim, but the root of this doctrine is very different and so too is the fruit it yields.

Understanding what went on before the flood, what many bible topics mean in light of it, and what the implications are for the end times greatly expands maturity in objective thinking and understanding of the biblical message on a wide scale.

The result is ultimately that you begin to understand Mercy for what it is… that there is no room for games of pride and racial “one-uping”… that grace encompasses all recipients of it, and that it is futile to debate the purity of one’s own family tree.

Accepting the Serpent Seed theory grows into the antithesis of all of this. Confusion is the foundation of it, and it breeds confusion in understanding the full message of scripture… it necessitates very creative interpretation of scripture to continually find ways of supporting it throughout.

The doctrine itself is not simply background information for those who hold it, but it is the axis on which their whole “faith” rests. It becomes of utmost concern to place oneself apart from those who are considered the literal offspring of Satan.

This group is always held to be one or more specific ethnic group, and the “true Israel” is held as being whatever racial group the adherent belongs to (for Murray followers… white).

The obvious hallmark of pride abounds… that this cult has factions in every ethnicity, only adjusting the claims of who belongs to the devil and who belongs to Israel is enough evidence to show that the beliefs held around the Serpent Seed doctrine are hinging on racism and produce fruit fit for the garbage pile.

The doctrine of the Serpent Seed says basically this… that Satan literally had sex with Eve, producing Cain… this was the original sin of mankind. That Cain’s descendants are still with us today… who they are will depend on the adherent of the doctrine you ask.

Murray-ites will say Jews, black and other “non-white” groups. Anglo-Saxon whites are presented as “true” Israel in the Murray school of thought, whereas other ethnic groups might be labeled as such in different versions of the same creed.

The outcome is a band-aid for an inferiority complex which bolsters ones self esteem by being a member of the “Real” Israel, with the justified ability to look down other ethnic groups.

The fact that angelic entities did arrive on earth, and did interbreed with humanity beginning in the days of Jared, seems to have not fit the bill for the purposes of the Cain Serpent Seed theory.

Perhaps that has a beginning in those who first pushed the theory itself. The Serpent Seed theology has it’s beginnings in gnosticism and kaballah, not Murray.

Both of these belief systems are ironically ones which Arnold Murray followers would deny.. yet there is the root of their central belief.

Kaballah is called a Jewish invention, but it is older than it’s Jewish application, and more resembles Babylon. Both of these belief systems, gnosticism and kaballah, are rooted in the corrupt teachings of the Watchers.

It would not behoove the agenda of the fallen Watchers or their students, ancient and modern, to instill a memory and understanding of how they corrupted the world physically or morally.

The Serpent Seed theory by necessity demands denial of a world-wide flood, which is very difficult to support throughout scripture. It demands negating and explaining away, in very convoluted ways, the simple statement of Eve… that she had gotten a son through the blessing of YHWH, and the very simple prelude of explanation about how she did: a normal marital union with Adam.

The worst blunder in this doctrine lies in the commandment concerning the tree of knowledge of good and evil. YHWH’s command was to leave that one tree alone, of all those in the garden… they were free to partake of the others.

If we must accept that the tree of knowledge of good and evil is representative of Satan, and taking it’s fruit is literally having sex with him… then what of the other trees?

Do Adam and Eve have licenses to fornicate with anything in the garden Other than Satan? What do we then make of the tree of Life?

The scene begins to degrade into a bizarre pornographic version of Paradise that I dare say we are not looking forward to as the future state of eternal perfection.

Satan has 10 lies to obscure everyone truth… and it is my hope that believers will not accept the things which “feel good” to believe, but rather judge them against evidence, against common sense and against simple desires to believe a certain way.

Judge all things in His Spirit and examine the fruit that beliefs produce. If those fruits do not resemble His nature… they are best dismissed accordingly, no matter how much you have grown to like them.

Transhumanism: Despising His Image

Posted in 12 : Technocracy with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on 07/22/2010 by timenolonger

“…So ‘Elohiym created the man in His image, in the image of ‘Elohiym He created him, male and female He created them.”

– Genesis 1:27

Of all the vast creation which YHWH has made, it is in man that He has chosen to incarnate His likeness. No greater honor could any creature receive above this, and yet it means next to nothing to most of mankind living in this generation.

It is not only that it is ignored or disbelieved, but that it is despised.

Who has taught humanity to despise the image and likeness of the Creator manifest in their own selves, and why?

Though humanity has lost understanding of what it means to have been made in the image of the Creator, the citizens of the heavens never took it so lightly.

The sons of Elohim, or angels as they are commonly known now, did not all rejoice in the creation of a race of beings made of such lowly stuff as the dirt of the Earth, which were given such honor above even those made before them.

Satan’s rebellion made a target of humanity, as he understood that to corrupt mankind was to deface the very image of the One he opposed.

“Now the serpent was more cunning than any beast of the field that Yahuwah ‘Elohiym had made and he said to the woman, “Has ‘Elohiym indeed said, ‘You shall not eat of every tree of the garden’?”

– Genesis 3:1

The Watchers came in with the outward justification of guiding humanity to a better direction, but in the end completed the corruption of mankind physically, which Satan had begun spiritually.

The rebellious servants of YHWH had perverted His image to reflect their own image instead.

“Then they took wives, each choosing for himself; whom they began to approach, and with whom they cohabited; teaching them sorcery (pharmacology), incantations, and the dividing of roots and trees (recombinant DNA). And the women conceiving brought forth giants…”

– 1 Enoch 7:10,11 (text in parenthesis is mine)

Humans were not just victims, though. As Eve and then Adam first had to be willing to eat of the forbidden tree, their descendants had to be willing to participate in the corruption of their own physical nature.

Humans were willing students of the forbidden sciences taught to them, and willing subjects of a hybrid breeding experiment with beings who were not of their own kind.

It would seem strange, perhaps, to imagine now why those early human beings would be so willing, who had all reason to know and treasure their unique quality of being made in His image, but such rebellion never begins by seeming like the disaster that it is.

Their lives were not easy, being cursed to work hard in laboring and toiling for the food which they ate, and that which they wore. Suffering and the promise of eventual death had come with sin, yet through suffering and toil they could mature, they could learn the benefit of obedience to YHWH and have joy in their children and peace from the promise of a future Savior.

Patience has never been a common human virtue, though.

The offer of a quicker way to an easier life was no less attractive then than now. The same impatient recklessness which makes the world believe in a pill to fix every problem was eager for a way to a stronger, less vulnerable physical existence, and convenience which would free them from the hard toil assigned to them.

By learning advanced technologies, they saw the power to reclaim the paradise only Adam and Eve had known. In allowing union with heavenly beings, they saw the power to advance humanity to a race of Earthly “gods”.

“But as the days of Noah so also will the coming of the Son of Man be”.

– Matthew 24:37

If it was announced that the human race could undergo gene therapy which would result in stronger bodies, longer, healthier lives and greater intellect, how attractive would this seem?

What man needs to wait for a future that is possibly beyond his own mortal life to see the intervention of a Creator, when the means to achieve all that He has promised might be gotten now?

That tempting possibility did not end as people hoped it would before the flood came. The technology which was introduced led only to apathy, to greed, indulgent wickedness and violence. The unnatural super beings spawned of inter-species union became tyrants and cannibals.

Now the world is eager to do it again.

It is not enough to be a creature made with the potential to reflect the image of the sovereign Elohim. Mankind wants to “evolve”.

Transhumanism is the word used in this day to speak about all that humanity can become if the greatest hopes and desires of the elite rulership is achieved.

The dream that puts faulty creatures in the place of Creator and begins to further deface the image He has placed in mankind, would use the genetic material of animals, plants, and the extra-dimensional forefathers of this goal to re-create mankind as a species.

They would even seek to introduce non-organic, mechanical components to the human body.

Julian Huxley, brother of Aldous who authored Brave New World, first used this word: Transhumanism. Huxley was a member of the British Eugenics Society, eugenics being the foundation of Transhumanism.

Eugenics is a science dedicated to a Darwinist philosophy applied to humanity, that the strong should thrive and evolve, while the weak are culled and eradicated.

Eugenics rests on a necessity of there being superior and inferior genetic pools in the human population. It might be very socially unacceptable to speak publicly of there being some races, ethnic or cultural groups who are inferior to the rest, yet in secrecy this is exactly what elite Eugenicists believe.

The public is guided to love the idea of Transhumanism by being persuaded that it is not a goal attached to race or ethnicity, but simply a means of bettering all of humanity. This is quite untrue.

Elite Transhumanists have no desire to “evolve” all humankind, their goal is one which seeks to advance only their own bloodlines and to leave the rest in disadvantage to them so that these unfortunate ones have no choice but to become their slaves, their lab animals and their labor force.

“The lowest strata are reproducing too fast. Therefore… they must not have too easy access to relief or hospital treatment lest the removal of the last check on natural selection should make it too easy for children to be produced or to survive; long unemployment should be a ground for sterilisation.”

– Julian Huxley

The elite, as they are wrongly called, are blood relations of one another, descending from the hybrid tyrants who ruled in result of this same Transhumanist philosophy pre-flood.

It is believed in error that Transhumanists are atheist for the most part and that the idea grew from an atheist background.

Atheists do often attach themselves to this because it is easily sold to them. With no hope of an eternal future, one who lives without YHWH sees synthetic immortality as perhaps the only eternal future possible.

At its root, Transhumanism is highly religious though. It grows directly from the heart of idolatry and the worship of false deities and false saviors. It is the false eternal life of the false Messiah offered to the elect of his apostate kingdom.

It is not a possible future hope of science that this is about, it is not an extreme and imaginative goal which science is still far from being able to achieve – This is current ability science.

The ability to recombine DNA from separate species exists now. The ability to use nanotechnology integrated into human bodies exists now. The ability to build robotics which can work in and with the human anatomy exists now.

It is not reasonable to assume there is a morality in this world which will block the progress of these things to their desired end. It is not even reasonable to assume that these things have not already been done to willing or unwilling human participants under secrecy, knowing that those who pursue this path hold no esteem for honesty,open relations with the public or concern for the well being of those they consider less than themselves.

It is very gradually pressed upon the public so that they will become numbed to the shock and the horror of such strange things being done to human subjects and when that numbness has finally taken over, then will it be brought into the light and barely be argued against at all.

How difficult will it really be to persuade a world of people who are of a nature to serve whatever seems to benefit them in the moment, whatever pushes them higher in what is esteemed by world society?

Entertainment featuring heroes who are genetically altered mutants or robotically enhanced draw great fascination from the public.

The idea of becoming better, more capable, more special is held like bait before their eyes, tempting them to dream of a reality where they become the genetically altered or robotically enhanced hero.

If they had not been convinced to despise the very image of the Creator branded in their own natural bodies, they would not be so quick to deface that image. Humanity has been deceived to hate what they are in favor of becoming, the image of demoted spiritual servants.

There is no upgrade to what it means to be human in Transhumanism, there is only the option to demean and destroy what it means to be made in the image of YHWH.
