In what appears to be a case of the rich experimenting on their version of life for a transhumanist agenda, the UK Telegraph reports that by sometime in the fall of 2012, we will be happily munching on burgers made from meat grown in a lab. Yes, that’s right.

Pro.  Post said his team has successfully replicated the process with cow cells and calf serum, bringing the first artificial burger a step closer. He said: “In October we are going to provide a proof of concept showing out of stem cells we can make a product that looks, feels and hopefully tastes like meat.”

Why should we be concerned with this? After all, benefits would include slaughtering fewer animals. What could possibly be wrong with that?

Although it is possible to extract a limited number of stem cells from cows without killing them, Prof Post said the most efficient way of taking the process forward would still involve slaughter. He said: “Eventually my vision is that you have a limited herd of donor animals in the world that you keep in stock and that you get your cells from there.”

Each animal would be able to produce about a million times more meat through the lab-based technique than through the traditional method of butchery, he added.

This sounds reasonable if you want to trust your food to a lab. Oh, we already do? And just how is that working out so far? Our food supply has been adulterated by chemicals, genetic engineering, cloning, pesticides, and irradiation, courtesy of a so-called “science-based” process, which is anything but. When left to their own devices and funded by megalomaniacs, it seems that the guys in the little white lab coats like to cook up a whole host of concoctions that animals don’t even want to eat unless they are forced to. Maybe the animals are smarter than us, eh?

So, here is what they are cooking up this time:

To produce the meat, stem cells are placed in a broth containing vital nutrients and serum from a cow foetus which allow them to grow into muscle cells and multiply up to 30 times. The strips of meat begin contracting like real muscle cells, and are attached to velcro and stretched to boost this process and keep them supple.

At the moment the method produces meat with realistic fibres and a pinkish-yellow tinge, but Prof Post expects to produce more authentically coloured strips in the near future.

He forecast that, with the right funding and regulatory approval, his method could be scaled up to industrial proportions within as little as ten years. UK Telegraph

With the right funding? Well, it seems that you already have it, Professor.

The work is being financed by an anonymous and extremely wealthy benefactor who Prof. Post claims is a household name with a reputation for “turning everything into gold.” UK Telegraph

While vegans rejoice, another agenda just might be afoot. Ponder this:

Think artificial life, transhumanism, synthetic biology, genetic engineering and cloning. Now think Cargill.

Cargill just happens to be responsible for 70-75% of the hazardous waste hydrofluosilicic acid used in fluoridation programs. (Fluoride Action Network)

The U.S. government considers the basic chemical composition of hydrofluosilicic acid, a toxic waste, and fluoride to be the same when dumped in the water supply. (Farm Wars)

What do all of these things have in common? How about the obscenely rich making even more of an obscene profit off of feeding the masses with their experiments in engineering humanity the way they want to?  Experiment with synthesizing flesh and muscle for future transhumans, and sell your experiments to the public as food – a win/win situation. Get paid to throw away your waste products much like Cargill does with its hazardous waste from the manufacture of fertilizer, which gets purchased and put into our water supply to supposedly prevent tooth decay, while Big Pharma rakes in the profits from inevitable illnesses that follow.

Think this is far-fetched? The wanderings of a deranged and paranoid mind? Think again. This is not science fiction, it is happening now, one piece at a time. Take for instance the spider goat genetically modified to produce bullet-proof human skin. I can’t make this stuff up. This is the transhumanist agenda, and it appears they are happily on their way to developing who knows what to unleash upon humanity without even so much as a thought about the consequences.

We are being transformed as we speak. Each time we eat a genetically engineered organism (GMO), we are eating something that was designed to horizontally/laterally transfer DNA to other cells. We have scientists busily working on the Soul Catcher chip that purports to catch a person’s every lifetime thought and sensation.

This is the end of death,” said Dr. Chris Winter, of British Telecom’s artificial life team. He predicted that within three decades it would be possible to relive other people’s lives by playing back their experiences on a computer. “By combining this information with a record of the person’s genes, we could recreate a person physically, emotionally and spiritually. Cyberbrain

Now all they need is the body, and it seems that the guys in the little white lab coats are working on just that. How long before we begin to see artificial men walking among us with flesh grown in a Petri dish? And just how will we know them? Maybe when we come face to face with a not so benevolent personality wrapped in bullet proof skin who decides that the 38 special pointed at it is nothing more than a nuisance at best. And most of all, when will we natural humans be declared an endangered species?

    Great piece of thoughtful writing. Barbara, you connected some dots for me. I will say, however, that I know some hardcore vegans they definitely do not rejoice at the notion of lab-created meat. They see this as the same kind of madness and evil genius that brought us factory farming. They promote a plant-based diet and compassion for all beings, human included.

  2. Dan says:

    True enough, Mr. Putin, that just because we can, we should. However, do not expect the “end of the world”, as you put it, will come any time soon. Unless you mean the end of the present age. We should be looking forward to the next era. If we have the intelligence to know what is going to happen, we should also have the resources which we will need to endure. Patriots, of whatever country, can and do, have and will.

    this is madness!

    “a herd of donor cattle” – so… instead of killing animals to eat their meat, we’ll kill them and instead grow a type of faux-meat by using our magical science powers..

    why not practice sustainable farming to begin with?

    hey, i’ve got an idea! – why don’t we start collecting the semen of humans and we’ll just start artificially inseminating the womenfolk, that’ll cut out all the inefficiency and hassle of sex..

    while we’re at it, why don’t we change our schools to daycare indoctrination centres so we can just send the kids there to free up our worktime, this is great, there’s the added byproduct of programming the kiddies in the same fell swoop.

    how about the pop music, anyone? access to peoples heads, bypass critical thinking skills..

    guys i got this great idea of renaming nutrients as toxins also.. may as well generate seeds that don’t germinate while we’re at it.. much stuff to do

    Retarded! (yes, Retarded, because anyone who is Mentally Challenged would say doing these things mentioned above is, well, “Retarded”, as well witless, silly, dumb, ignorant, sad, idiotic, moronic, and foolish!)

    I Am forgiving these @$$ _*!!$ and blessings them to realize that they are spiritual beings having a foolish stint of arrogance and ignorance affecting their better, saner, wiser judgement.

  5. VPutin54 says:

    The end of the World can’t come soon enough. We, the human race, deserve it. This is always the danger of “scientific progress”. What Man finds he can do, he will do. The best example is nuclear energy. Once they figured out how to split the atom, the FIRST use was to destroy 2 Japanese cities.

    Everything new, is first turned to weapons technology.

    And this kind of stuff? Sickening. Though it’s denied, I’d bet good money that humans have been cloned. Just because we CAN, doesn’t mean we should.

  6. Dan says:

    While I do believe we will someday be looking at everything artificial, even to point of our very food, modern science by all of its names will never produce life itself. We are created beings, by a Creator who breathes life into us. But, He gave us the ability to play, and so we play…

    “”People with mental retardation really don’t like the word””

    If they’re retarded they won’t be able to grasp the concept. What you mean is “People who know retards” don’t like the word. However that doesn’t take the meaning away from the word, ‘retarded’ is like ‘disabled’, unpopular these days but accurate, and PC bullshit won’t change their meanings.

    Barbara, after a lifetime of reading science fiction all I can say is, it all comes true! Plenty of stories of synethetic men & robot blends who have quite different agendas, and many stories of a few powerful people running a world of dumbed-down workers.

  8. jeanne says:

    Hi Pierre,your statement got lost in the translation by your inappropriate use of the term retarded. People with mental retardation really don’t like the word…like the n word. Otherwise I agree these sick minds are a danger to society.

  9. Pierre says:

    US government is retarded and sucks they are more than insane. US need a revolution and trow away all those retarded from Washington ASAP!

  10. Karen says:

    Very well written, Barbara. It’s hard to understand…when did people quit caring? I’m thankful that as a Christian I have a hope beyond this life, because this life is getting pretty scary!
