CLONING HUMANS FOR SPARE PARTS

CLONING HUMANS FOR SPARE PARTS

“A special point has been reached in the distant future. And in this era, there exists a special group of mental beings. Although these beings can trace their ancestry back to homo sapiens, they are as different from humans as humans are from the primitive worms with tiny brains that first crawled along the earth’s surface….It is difficult to find the words to describe the enhanced attributes of this special people. ‘Intelligence’ does not do justice to their cognitive abilities. ‘Knowledge’ does not explain the depth of both their understanding of the universe and their own consciousness. ‘Power’ is not strong enough to describe the control they have over technologies that can be used to shape the universe in which they live.” (Remaking Eden: Cloning and Beyond in a Brave New World, by Lee M. Silvers, Avon Books, New York, 1997, pg. 249, 250) (Emphasis mine) In 1988, Joseph Fletcher, perhaps one of the most influential men in regards to the so-called “science of bioethics,” who is regarded as the “patriarch of bioethics,” predicted that a change in our species would evolve that is so drastic and radical in nature, that he coined its coming, as “Homo autofabricus.” But this evolutionary change would not come in the slow and gradual processes, accumulated over thousands of years, as would be predicted by the Uniformitarian evolutionary model. RELATED: CHALLENGE AND OPPORTUNITY These radical changes would reach previously unfathomed levels of transformation, within only a few decades. It is as if evolution would have been placed in hyperdrive fast forward speed. “The Harvard University professor and ‘patriarch of bioethics’ predicted that biotechnology will lead to a...
An Open Letter to the Nasty Women

An Open Letter to the Nasty Women

Dear Participants of the Women’s March: As I walked around New York City on a surprisingly balmy January day, I saw you marching with signs in tow. Among other messages, many signs read, “Illegal Immigrants Make Our Country Better,” “Say Yes to Abortion,” “Global Warming is the Number One Threat to Humanity,” and “Donald Trump Bathes in Cheetos.” I have no problem with your constitutionally derived right to peacefully assemble, but enquiring minds would like to know: what on earth were you protesting? From what I observed, it seemed to be a march in support of illegal immigration and abortion, while at the same time admonishing global warming and Donald Trump’s spray tan. Was the intent of this march to revel in our womanliness and celebrate our Sisterhood? If so, it fell short of its goals because participants with my particular choice of president, political ideology, and pro-life belief were prohibited from participating in this march. #ResistBigotry Were you marching in the streets after news broke that Hillary Clinton received millions in campaign contributions from countries that virtually and even literally enslave women? Were you demonstrating in the streets when Bill Clinton cheated on his wife and abused women inside the Oval Office? Where were you when Hillary Clinton and Barrack Obama declared that marriage should be between a man and a woman? Did you protest when countless generations of women were and continue to be forced to undergo genital mutilation in Mali? Where were you when millions of female fetuses had their lives ended by abortion? Did you take a stand when young women were forced to freely bleed in “period tents” because of the lack of feminine-hygiene...

An Open Letter to Paul Ryan

An Open Letter to Paul Ryan

Dear Paul Ryan: Over thirteen million God-fearing, tax-paying, hard-working Americans took time out of their busy schedules to wait in line and cast a ballot for Donald J. Trump in the Republican Primary.  With a vast field of 17 talented candidates to choose from, we weighed our options and carefully voted with our hearts and minds.  Who do you think you are to believe that you can thwart the will of the people of this fine constitutional republic?  Where do you get the right, authority, or audacity to think you can circumvent the voice of the people?  If you fought this hard against President Obama and his agenda; we wouldn’t need Donald Trump to pry the power out of your unclean hands. We stood in those same lines for you to carefully cast our votes.  We foolishly believed that you cared about us and had our best interests at heart.  We believed in you and looked to you to stop the President’s unconstitutional orders.  We gave you donations so you could defeat the forces we believe are eroding our Constitution.  Your complacency has shown that you are part of the very same destructive forces you vowed to defeat. You cow-towed to the will of the Democrats each and every time a vote took place.  You allowed President Obama to get away with everything he wanted without challenge.  You did NOTHING to stop Obamacare.  You did NOTHING to stop the Iran deal.  You did NOTHING to stop the reckless spending of our tax dollars.  You ALLOWED the OMNIBUS bill which funds sanctuary cities and tax credits for illegal aliens.  You...
