When reading this yesterday, about the approval given to create human-animal embryos, I was just sickened. Then I just wondered how we could fail to be judged for such a thing? How long can this kind of evil be perpetuated? Will we continue to provoke God in as many ways as we can possibly think of? Now we’re starting to mess with what makes us ‘us’.
Putting aside the spurious scientific justifications for embryonic stem cell research (which never cured anything, unlike adult stem cell therapy), it seems to me that we are continuing to construct our technological Tower of Babel. The ancients may have done it by building a tower to the heights, we have many new and innovative ways to do it. What do we want? Just as before, really. To make a name for ourselves, to set ourselves up as gods, masters of all that we survey.
We may indeed have made a name for ourselves, even set up ourselves as gods of a sort. Only, we are dark gods, and the name we have given ourselves is evil. God have mercy!
