TRANSHUMANISM AND THE ANOINTING:
EMBRYO TO DESTINY
Dr. James Hughes is executive director of the Institute for Ethics and Emerging Technologies and teaches at Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut. He is the author of Citizen Cyborg: Why Democratic Societies Must Respond to the Redesigned Human of the Future, a humanist manifesto for transhumanist values. Dr. Hughes belongs to an emerging group of academics, sociologists and bio-ethicists who support:
Large-scale genetic and neurological engineering of ourselves…[a] new chapter in evolution [as] the result of accelerating developments in the fields of genomics, stem-cell research, genetic enhancement, germ-line engineering, neuro-pharmacology, artificial intelligence, robotics, pattern recognition technologies, and nanotechnology…at the intersection of science and religion [which has begun to question] what it means to be human.1
Many bio-tech experts predict human-enhancement may be initiated after 2012.2
In 2007 National Geographic magazine proferred a guess that within 10 years, the first “human non-humans” would be operative upon Planet Earth. Now retired SDSU (San Diego State University) professor and computer scientist Vernor Vinge gave his presentation, “The Coming Technological Singularity,” at Vision-21 Symposium sponsored by NASA Lewis Research Center and the Ohio Aerospace Institute in 1993. He said recently that we are approaching the era when questions like “What is the meaning of life?” will be nothing more than an engineering question.
Nick Bostrom, Oxford philosophy professor and co-founder of the World Transhumanism Association, writes that posthumans will realize eternal youth and health, gain complete control over their minds and emotions, and “experience novel states of conscious-ness” that present human minds cannot imagine.3
Posthumans may even choose to discard their bodies in favor of life as “information patterns on vast super-fast computer networks.”3
The USA government, via the National Institute of Health, recently granted Case Law School in Cleveland $773,000 (money appropriated from USA tax payers) to develop guidelines that will be used for establishing government policy with respect to the next phase of human evolution—“genetic enhancement.”

Also a key player in the arena is the area of Transgenics. Transgenics allow scientists to develop organisms that express a novel trait not normally found in the species (including humans); for example, a type of rice known as golden rice has elevated levels of vitamin A. Scientists have also developed sunflowers that are resistant to mildew and cotton that resists insect damage. Possible transgenic combinations can be broken down generally into three categories:
1) plant-animal-human combinations;
2) animal-animal combinations; and
3) animal-human combinations.4
And, toward the side of “normalcy”? (for medical reasons) we now have the “Three people – one baby” consultation, where two embryos are fertilised with sperm, creating an embryo from the intended parents and another embryo from the donor(s).5
Recently, while preparing a session on “Stem Cell Research” for the University of Excellence in the course module “New Ideas and Science,” I was meditating on God's calling of the Prophet Jeremiah while he was in the womb of his mother.
“Then the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, 'Before I formed you in the belly I knew you; and before you came forth out of the womb I sanctified you, and I ordained you a prophet unto the nations.'” (Jeremiah 1:4-5)
Notice four things that God said:
“I formed you in the belly.”
“I knew you before I formed you in the belly.”
“Before you came forth out of the womb, I sanctified you.”
“Before you came forth out of the womb, I ordained you a prophet to the nations.”
The Hebrew word used above for “formed” is the word “yatzar” and has the meaning “to mold into a form (as a potter); to fashion.”
Psalm 139:16 tells us, “Your eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in Your book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.” I heard a medical doctor once say that “substance, yet being unperfect, with all my members being in continuance fashioned, when as yet there was none of them,” was the best description he had ever heard on the formation of the life in the womb.
If you will check a concordance, you will find there are many references in the Holy Bible where God says “I formed” the life in the womb. In addition, the beautiful truth is that God knows the life in the womb intimately BEFORE He forms it. In Jeremiah 1:4, the Hebrew for “knew” is a primitive root “yada” and means “to be acquainted with (closely),” as a man knows his wife.
All lives are unique, but in the life of special servants of God there is a setting apart – a sanctification – for a particular destiny, such as in Jeremiah's life. It is the same with ALL who have experienced the New Birth through Mashiach Yeshua (Messiah Jesus).
There are NO unimportant people in God's Kingdom … and NO trivial jobs. Only super humans for super destinies … designed BY and anointed FOR a Creator from beyond TIME and SPACE.
If you have exercised your FREE WILL to repent of sin and receive Messiah Jesus as your LORD, the anointing of God will guide you at the coordinates of: x. your obedience; and, y. God's will for your life.
Soon (some are already living now) … 144,000 Jewish prophets will arrive on the arena of Israel-centric international geopolitics. They have been called for such a time as this to guide the remnant of the House of Israel – believing Jews – to a knowledge of their Mashiach. They will dominate the media and cyber space … both legally and illegally: in the public marketplace, in governmental and business concourses, and underground. No one can stop them until they are finished!
