Science, Entertainment, and The Coming Deception

2012-03-06

I was given a link to a site focused on the discovery of a curious skull found in Mexico, and it brings up some important issues regarding science and history. There is a lot of material to go through, but the article on DNA was especially intriguing to me.

DNA is “the stuff of life”; living things are defined by it. So it should come as no surprise that all living things have some degree of DNA in common:

The human genome has large numbers of corollaries in the world around us. Humans share 97% of our genes with chimps, 95% with gorillas, 70% with rats, 65% with mice, and 26% with yeast! Thus, nearly everything on Earth is, in some way, genetically interrelated with humans, so it is not unusual that some of the Starchild’s nuDNA is found to be human-like.
So similarities in genetics are not proof of evolutionary ancestry. As I’ve said before regarding sharing half our DNA with bananas, it isn’t the similarities that matter, it’s the the differences. And the study of genetics has proven that those differences between “kinds” are inviolable:
Within that life-and-death consistency, the human genome does contain slight variations. Tiny Pygmies and tall Watusis are black Africans with stark physical differences, yet both tribes are unmistakably human. Differences in their genetic makeup make it impossible for two Pygmies to produce a Watusi, and vice-versa. Yet DNA can flex enough so that if one of each tribe were to mate, they could produce viable offspring, although the flexibility does not go beyond certain points. Something is either human, or it isn’t. There is no in-between (emphasis mine).
DNA is not so much about change as it is about preservation; it is not an inside limit but an outside limit. We can thus conclude that, at best, evolution is only one of several possible theories, and certainly not any more robust than others, to put it mildly. The DNA evidence is the same for the evo, starchild, and creation theories; the three only differ in interpretation. Yet while creation/the Bible can easily explain and be compatible with both biology and the starchild theory, evo is compatible with neither.

If it’s an established biological fact that DNA sets impassible limits on organisms, then one could never have evolved from another; there can only be variations within a “kind” just as creationists have always said. So not only does this discovery threaten established views of biological evolution, it deals a death blow to them; once again, the great enemy of evo is real science. But of course, neither starchild nor evo explains “the arrival of the fittest”, as they merely move the origination line in the sand to areas of the universe where (they allege without observation or any other shred of evidence) science as we know it does not apply. That is, if DNA forces us to admit the need for delibrate intelligent design in order to make hybrids, then the “kinds” (including “space aliens”) had to have been created or engineered, begging the question of who or what is the creator/engineer-- and whether we really know anything at all about biolgical pre-history.

Of course we can tie all this in with those reptilian/gray alien theories as well. Many people have insisted that they met some of these entities in the military or secret service, and the entities tell them elaborate histories of wars between the two types. This is another strand of “The Lie” to come, where people will interpret the events of the Rapture and Tribulation through the false lens of “the teachings of demons”, as well as possibly a faked “rapture event” to cover the real one, where they project holographic images of alien mother ships in the sky (more movie conditioning). The world is ripe for deception in every possible way.

So evo theory isn’t all that is affected by this evidence; there are social/spiritual implications as well. We just watched X-Men again recently, and I remarked that the “X” is a term for “alien” DNA (among other things, and please note that I do NOT agree with a lot of the material there; it’s just a reference to how the occult view X and DNA), which I am convinced is really “demon” DNA (see also this article), demons being the hybrid offspring of the angel/human breeding of Genesis 6:1-5. The movies condition people to accept superhumans as superior, more evolved people rather than the monsters that they are.

The “mark of the beast” could be an injection of demon DNA and the reason people who take it seal their doom (Rev. 14:9-11). But it’s more likely nothing but a pledge of loyalty to Satan, which is why no sneakily-injected microchip can be it; it has to be accepted knowingly and willingly (see this article). For this reason, I don’t see the Mark as a personal currency or identification, but a group identification-- the group being allegiance to the Beast. Everyone gets the same mark, not individualized marks. So chips with our personal info can’t be it, but rather something more like the tattoos (“marks”!) of the bad mutants in X-Men.

Entertainment is conditioning; science (more accurately, scientism) has become a non-theistic religion; the two-party political system is a charade; the internet is a massive cauldron of mixed truth and error. And just as we see the old institutions crumbling (evo, national politics), we see new ones ready to take their places (aliens, globalism). The Bible (and especially the resurrection of Jesus) has always been under attack, but when they could not discredit the textual/historical evidence, its enemies turned:

to myths and legends

stemming, they now say,

from aliens “a long time ago,

in a galaxy far, far away”.

All things considered, I think that the greatest deception of all really boils down to a refusal to face the problem of origins. I think that between science and all the theories claiming the Bible stole everything from earlier religions (and no one asks what was the origin of those!), every theory hits a brick wall when it comes to origination. Evolution or not, aliens or not, myths or not... nobody can claim that existence had no cause but just existed eternally-- an ironic last resort in light of their rejection of the eternal nature of God. As I’ve said before, someone or something had to be the First Cause, and it had to have the power to create/design all that exists, including philosphy/religion and other abstract concepts.

Knowledge is power, but be careful where you get your facts. Weigh everything; never blindly accept the first argument, experiment, or claim (Prov. 18:17). If two alternatives are presented, look for a third. If any theory refuses to allow cross-examination, it has something to hide. If there are many copies, look for the original. If there are many reflections in mirrors, look for what they all reflect. The times we live in are saturated in deception, so do the hard work of discernment and you will not be fooled.

Proverbs 1:7-9 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction. Listen, my son, to your father’s instruction and do not forsake your mother’s teaching.

1:20-33 Out in the open wisdom calls aloud, she raises her voice in the public square; on top of the wall she cries out, at the city gate she makes her speech:

“How long will you who are simple love your simple ways? How long will mockers delight in mockery and fools hate knowledge? Repent at my rebuke! Then I will pour out my thoughts to you, I will make known to you my teachings. But since you refuse to listen when I call and no one pays attention when I stretch out my hand, since you disregard all my advice and do not accept my rebuke, I in turn will laugh when disaster strikes you... Then they will call to me but I will not answer; they will look for me but will not find me, since they hated knowledge and did not choose to fear the LORD...”
