The Bible’s description of end-time scenarios are often derided by secular humanists – those who, buoyed by an incredible faith in evolution, boasts that mankind will only improve with time, and will eventually solve all the problems confronting it. Therefore, war, natural catastrophes, plagues and famine etc which the Bible predicts for the end-times are derided with the belief that such “mere evidences of under-development” would be totally dealt with by technology as time progresses endlessly. Taking the example of famine, science fictions are rife with new wonder products, packed with incredible amount of nutrition per unit mass, such that food will never be a concern again to mankind of the future. Of course such products will be mass produced from synthetic stuffs, thus banishing the very concept of global famine forever.
But what is the pathway to this utopian state? Secular humanists will with one accord affirm it is genetically modified products. That is, prior to complete synthetic production of foods, the naturally occurring foods will first be continually modified to bring out certain desirable characteristics – faster, bigger, more disease-resistant yields.
However, most thinking people recognize that it is this approach that will even more likely hasten the advent of the Biblically-predicted famine for the end-times ! Even if it is assumed that the corky scientists indeed know their onions and their new products will not have negative implications for our health or ecology (however see for instance, the article “50 Harmful Effects of Genetically-modified food at http://www.cqs.com/50harm.htm); the basic issue of patent rights and human greed often necessitates that these GM products are sterilized – that is in the few cases where they are not already sterile as a result of the genetic manipulations. This then means that as these products increase in popularity and the naturally occurring ones (bearing viable seeds) disappear, we all would become more and more dependent on the suppliers of these new wonder products for food from year to year. What a perfect set-up to introduce global famine!
But the grand backers of this scheme, blinded by their passion to exert total control on all mankind in their quest for one-world governance, are adamant that genetically-modified products must be foisted on mankind . The current largely man-made famine (outcome of a mad rush into a carbon dioxide-free environment) might indeed be the on-set of the real coming catastrophic famine – precisely because, it is set to lead to the release of an avalance of GM products onto the world.
