So this is what it’s come to. Test tube meat? Synthetic hamburger? Sounds delicious doesn’t it? Not! Have we gone so far over the edge that our next meal will come from a test tube? You know we are living in the end times when all living organisms are now engineered or manipulated in test tubes. Plants, animals, fuel, babies and now our meat! What’s next on the world agenda? Hmmm….sort of reminds me of a movie I once saw…”Soylent Green”! Does something sound fishy here or is it just me? The bible talks about genetic manipulation in the days of Noah with the Nephilim. He also says that the end times will be like that in the days of Noah! In Genesis 6:4 “There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.” And also after that, meaning the Nephilim would be around after the flood! I believe that the Nephilim are among us now and are playing a role in all of this genetic manipulation. What do you think?
A Dutch scientist hopes he’ll change minds about the viability of test tube meat when his first genetically engineered hamburger, made from billions of stem cells, is served hot off the grill.
Mark Post, the head of physiology at Maastricht University in the Netherlands, has spent years growing the synthetic hamburger from bovine stem cells, which his team turned into thin strips of muscle tissue before mincing them into a patty.
While the process has taken time and run up considerable expense – the project received $325,000 from an anonymous donor – Post told the New York Times he hoped the cost of cultured meat could come down in the future, making it a viable food source.
After conducting an informal tasting, Post gave the synthetic tissue his seal of approval, telling the Times, it “tastes reasonably good” and that he planned to add just salt and pepper before serving it, perhaps at an event in London this summer.
Post told ABC News in 2011 that he expected meat consumption to double in the next 40 years.
