THE issue of our time: Genetic Armageddon

An arrogant scientific elite has divorced themselves from common sense, morality, and the rest of the human species in their quest for full spectrum scientific domination. While the vast majority of the population is consuming endless supplies of entertainment, a revolution is taking place right under their noses. The very genetic code of the planet's biosphere is being tampered with; The ultimate goal being the ability to manipulate and program at will - as if working with a word processor -- the biological processes of life.

This issue is the issue of our time. If the Scientific Dictatorship is allowed to continue its operations without debate, the survival of the human species is at risk. The very individuals developing the technologies admit as much.

In the societal divide that will inevitably ensue over the development of these technologies, Fred Charles Ikle, Undersecretary of Defense for Policy under President Reagan, sees a possibility of "Annihilation from Within." "The prospect is that in the decades ahead, biotechnology -- together with other sciences -- may fundamentally change the human species and thus pose an elemental threat to democracy, the world order, and indeed to all civilizations," writes Ikle.

Here are a few examples highlighting the mental framework of this faction of scientific elites:

Tom Knight, professor at MIT's Artificial Intelligence Lab says that "The genetic code is 3.6 billion years old. It's time for a rewrite."

Top A.I. researcher Hugo de Garis explains in the following clip that the development of super-intelligent A.I. may lead to a devastating world war that could kill billions of people. He adds that he is more than willing to take the risk, saying, "As a brain builder myself, am I prepared to risk the extinction of the human species for the sake of building an artilect? " yep."

Arthur Kroker, Professor of Political Science at the University of Victoria and Director of the Pacific Centre for Technology and Culture identified an abhorrent element within the technological community. "Suicidal nihilists", states Kroker, ""occupy the commanding heights of digital reality"" He elaborates, "They can very happily ally themselves with a notion of nuclear holocaust or perfect exterminism" They're creating again and again the exterminism of human memory, the exterminism of human sensibility, the exterminism of individuated human intelligence, the exterminism of human morality itself."
