EAT YOUR HEART OUT SPIDERMAN! BULLET-PROOF SKIN COMING…

Well the Frankensteins in genetics research are at it again, if the U.K.'s Daily Mail is to be believed (and I believe it):

Scientists developing bullet-proof skin

Sure it sounds nutty, but the problems presented by this story are multiple, and once again, what we're being told publicly is probably only the tip of the iceberg. The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has been researching, in conjunction with the Pentagon, the idea of "supersoldiers" for a number of years. Indeed, the idea of combining spider's silk with human skin opens up the door for other possibilities: why not combine exoskeletons, spider's venom, mandibles, scorpion's stingers, with humans as well?

Once we've said that, we're right back to the Mesopotamian accounts of similar creatures in the Enuma Elish and from the accounts of Berossus. In the Enuma Elish, for example, we read that the "villainess" of the story, Tiamat, created "scorpion men" and a host of other chimerical creatures to wage war against the rest of the gods. In Berossus, we're told of "fish men" and even incredible androgynous creatures.

Of course this technological nuttiness will spawn the inevitable "armor versus guns" race that has been repeated throughout history. Imagine if these geneticists are successful and create their "bullet-proof humans" while physicists and engineers in other laboratories perfect hand-held laser weapons or electromagnetic railgun weapons. The next step? The geneticists may respond by combining nanotechnologies with genetic engineering to create perfectly reflective mirror-skin, or tweak the spider silk with carbon nanotubes...

.....and on and on the scientific nightmare will churn.

In addition to this, as I have so often pointed out, under American patent law, such a bullet-proof-skinned person would not arise naturally, but can only do so by the hand of man, and via a technique. In short, such people are patentable intellectual property, and that bodes ill for us all. Monsanto, for example, has already made a practice of suing farmers who, not even using their genetically modified seeds, manage to have their fields infected by Monsanto's seeds carried by the wind or spread by bird droppings and so on. Imagine now, taking the same legal precedent, the possibility that someone somehow ingests one of these artificially modified genes, and imagine that this modified gene then takes what was otherwise a "natural" human and proceeds to modify his or her genetic makeup according to the new design. Does the "Monsanto precedent" mean that these people thereby become the property of whoever invented the modification?

Keep the dial right here, because it's just beginning folks...

  1. Projectile weapons are already ahead of this idea. The AA-12 automatic 12 gauge shotgun not only shoots shot, slugs and various other semi-normal rounds, it also shoots small grenades which can penetrate a wall and clear a whole room.

    Also, there are all the chemical, directed energy weapons and other explosives readily available.

    So much for this body armor idea. Might work against civilian small arms…….

  2. The chubicabra
    (spelling like it sounds ’cause I don’t know)
    is a horror modern day chimera and there are many more.
    They would ‘escape’ (?) and come to shore from
    Plum Island. Many strange carcasses also found beached.
    The main facility has moved because of publicity leaks.
    Yet still no one is allowed there.

  3. Monsanto is the epitome of the evil mega-corporation. Hope for the best, but always expect the worst from beasts like them.

    Despite all the negatives of this development, I for one am thinking bigger than this. There is an amazing potential for this type of technology to be adapted to Fabrics. Once we reach this stage, we could develop a ‘space suit’ could we not?

  5. Got this reply back on the article and it’s worth sharing with all.

    During the days of the Moro Pirates of the Coast of Africa, the manner in which the pirates wrapped their bodies in bamboo torso protective armor caused the necessary invention of the .45 cal. 1911 automatic. What this accomplished was a large slug, that traveled at slow velocity and rather than being intended to necessarily penetrate, the weapon was designed to hit with a crushing blow and literally crush internal organs and break bones. Bullet proof skin will be a joke . . . but a body wrapped in a protective energy field would make more sense. The Israelis have such technology for their armor that sets off any armor piercing ordinance as it strikes the energy field . . . How bout envisioning an attacking force with bullet proof skin, coming up against a hail of .50 cal auto fire . . . or 20mm . . . don’t think so . . . and what about a flamethrower . . . like Dr.Farrell points out, other technology will surface and make so called bullet proof skin instantly obsolete . . .

    “Chapter six of Genesis has the sons of God taking the daughters of Adam as
    wives. This matches up with the book of Enoch (found online) which talks
    of this time. The interesting thing is that the more we restore of Genesis,
    the more the story of Enoch and Genesis line up. In Enoch, a group of
    fallen angels mated with human woman and their offspring grew into giants
    who’s genetics were not bound by species restrictions.
    These giants then experimented by copulating with herd animals, birds,
    large lizards etc. The offspring of this were abominations. Possibly
    accounting for the Greek legends of Minotaurs, Centaurs, etc as this
    occurred on more than a one time basis before and after the flood.
    Once these abominations were in the gene pool, they began interbreeding
    with others and so on, polluting and blurring the lines between species
    which is why the Earth needed to be cleansed.

    By the time of Noah (Nakha) planetary war, starvation, disease and
    ecological destruction faced the planet, and the decision was made to
    cleanse the Earth. Noah (Nakha) was then instructed to build a storage
    vessel to hold select animals to repopulate the Earth. Which brings us to
    the whole reason for this little discourse. Does the afore mentioned line in
    verse eight, regard instructions to choose animals that were not polluted
    with the genetics of the giants?
    Interesting thought.

    Interesting thought 2.0
    What if when the giants copulated with different types of lizards, that is
    where the dinosaurs came from. (see book of Enoch)
    A modern alligator can grow up to thirty feet long presently. Picture a giant
    morphed one of those. I’m not thinking of our little modern lizards though,
    but larger ones which are probably exinct.
    Not saying it happened, just a really weird thought.
    That would sure have helped speed up the destruction of mankind, getting
    eaten and all.”

    Keep thinking outside the lines everyone!!!!

  7. Whenever I hear about Monsanto suing farmers for the farmers’ fields having been INFECTED with Monsanto’s genetically modified Frankencrops, I get very angry…at the farmers. As the criminal, perpetrator, and transgressor here is clearly Monsanto, farmers should be suing Monsanto en masse for Monsanto screwing up their crops.

    Even a single attacked farmer could claim millions of dollars in damages and punitive fees. Further, if a framer sent Monsanto a certified tort letter demanding that Monsanto, as tort feasor, fix the damage or face a lawsuit then I think it is very likely that Monsanto would cough up some Frankenbucks. (Frankeneuros, whatever.)

    Actually, if a farmer placed carefully worded “No Trespass” notices (NOT to be confused with “No Trespassing,” which is UCC terminology.) stating a specific HUGE fine for trespass before sowing any crops then an even stronger case could be made; especially if the farmer is a sovereign.

    The problem here lies in the way people think…or DON’T think. The vast majority of people, and farmers, haven’t a clue as to what their rights are because they haven’t a clue as to what a right is.

    The vast majority of people, and farmers, think that in order for them to sue somebody that they must hire a shyster…uh…attorney…uh…lawyer when the simple fact is that all they have to do is teach themselves civil and criminal procedure and they can do it themselves. “If you want something done right then do it yourself.”

    Those who cower, object, and freak out as to how difficult this might be will do well to examine 8th grade, as in junior high school, written examinations from around 1905 in which these young children were expected to know how to sue and defend themselves in municipal courts. (Nowadays junior high students are NOT taught this but instead are taught by visiting police officers how to properly cooperate while being arrested.)

    So I say “Sue the Monsanto bastards!”

    As for the bullet-proof skin, I suspect that it already exists on some prototype in a DUMB somewhere. The various technologies and counter-technologies that will be played off on each other WILL be played off on each other by The Powers That Be for them to stay ahead of the curve and to rake in the loot while diminishing the untermann’s population to a manageable quantity.

    But it’s the way people think that is the real danger. If everyone knew how much more pleasant life would be for us all without any thoughts of malice and destruction then EVERYBODY would NOT start OR fight in wars.

    Yeah; and if “these truths” were REALLY “self-evident” then we would be a lot better off not only as a nation but also as a planet.

    1. Percy Schmieser was sued by Monsanto for gmo canola NOT IN HIS FIELD but along the side of the road (where it had fallen from a passing truck). It took several years and went to the Canadian Supreme Court. While it was aknowledged that he owed Monsanto no money it was decided that he had infringed on Monsanto;s rights as a patent holder.. more info on interview at tucradio.com (older programs)

      1. Thank you, jabrinka.

        As I live in Oklahoma, I am unfamiliar with Canadian courts. However, I came close to finishing up my above comment with a tirade/lamentation about how screwed up American…uh…United States courts are but I saw how long my comment was getting so I left it off.

        Obviously Canadian courts are just as screwed up. Thanks again!
