Some of the most powerful people on earth believe that one day they’ll be able to “upgrade” at least some human beings through genetic engineering and technological  schemes such as brain implants.  They’re so confident in their schemes they’re touting benefits as wild as eternal life and the ability to evolve into gods.  

Returning to bring listeners details on this issue, Crosstalk welcomed Alex Newman.  Alex is an award-winning international freelance journalist, author, researcher, educator and consultant.  He is senior editor for The New American,  co-author of Crimes of the Educators and author of Deep State: The Invisible Government Behind the Scenes.  He’s also founder of Liberty Sentinel.

Alex pulled no punches in his opening comments.  He described this as a diabolical agenda.  This doesn’t mean that everyone involved is evil or even understand the implications.  However, if you listen to the leaders of this movement, people like Ray Kurzweil, Yuval Noah Harari and Klaus Schwab, they explain how they feel they’ll become gods and will achieve immortality without Christ by merging with technology through things like brain implants, genetic engineering or uploading of their minds with computers systems.  

Christians realize how blasphemous this is and how it’s the oldest lie in history if you go back to Genesis 3 where Satan told Eve she could be like God and that she would not surely die.  

Klaus Schwab, the head of the World Economic Forum, has touted what he calls “The Fourth Industrial Revolution.”  Alex noted that Schwab first mentioned this in Foreign Affairs magazine published by the Council on Foreign Relations.  It comes down to two simple choices.  He said your options are (A) humanity will be robotized where we will be deprived of our hearts and souls and (B) it’s going to complement the best parts of humanity, driving us into a new moral and ethical paradigm where we will share a collective sense of destiny.  This will take place as we merge with our smart phone while also genetically engineering people.

For some this may sound great but in reality, it’s an attempt to overturn the moral order authored by God.  

This portion of the discussion is highlighted by audio from May of 2022 where Pekka Lundmark, the CEO of Nokia, communicated that by 2030 the smart phone as we know it today will not be the most common interface and that many of these things will be built into our bodies.   

If there was ever a time when it seemed like science fiction was becoming reality, this is it.  Hear more about where technology is taking us, and how this may affect your biblical worldview, when you review this edition of Crosstalk.
