GMOs, chemtrails, our RF saturated environment (cell phone towers, GWEN towers et al.) , and technology addicted youth are all serious issues facing our planet, but for transhumanists , they are not ‘problems’ at all, but simply logical and necessary steps that we need to take in order to arrive at what they call the ‘singularity,’ the final merging of man and machine.
In order for the human race to be successfully led to that point in the near future where we have morphed into a completely different species, it is necessary for the ‘powers that be’ (TPTB) to convince us that the technological trends and innovations we see happening around us are in fact a ‘good thing’ and beneficial. To this end, they occasionally need to employ celebrities, media talking heads, and prominent scientists. In a previous post, I discussed how one such well-known scientist, Michio Kaku, is now a leading cheerleader for the transhumanist/singlularity movement and how we would do well to take anything says with a heavy dose of skepticism.
Corporations such as Monsanto work tirelessly to insert their employees into governmental positions to ensure favorable regulation. However, Monsanto has an increasingly bad reputation around the world and they too need to utilize big name celebrities to give a smiley face to their wicked agenda. Hence, we have the recent spectacle of Neil deGrasse Tyson, famous astronomer and scientific celebrity, making a complete fool of himself by publicly stating that GMOs are a natural progression of what human farmers have been doing for the last 10,000 years and that opponents of genetic modification should ‘chill out.’
This is a pure psy-op and is about as transparent as you can get. Tyson is immensely popular and regularly works the talk show and news program circuit to discuss recent astronomical discoveries and his thoughts on the universe. Affable, humorous, self-deprecating, and humble, he is a brilliant scientist who the ‘everyman’ can relate to.
If science truly is our new religion, than Tyson is one of its high priests. When he speaks publicly on an important scientific issue such as GMOs, people tend to listen. Therefore, it was with no small degree of shock that many of us heard him utter his recent opinions on GMOs. Does he really believe what he said, or was he simply bought off? We will probably never have a definitive answer to that question, but for a man who claims to adhere to the scientific method, his thoughts on GMOs are puzzling indeed.
Unfortunately for Tyson, the issue of GMOs is not akin to astro-physics and I’m afraid that he seriously underestimated the intelligence and knowledge of his audience when he claimed that genetic modification of plants and trans-genics is no different from the plant breeding that we have been doing for thousands of years. Really, it’s as if he thought he was talking to a bunch of schoolchildren. To make matters worse, when people called him out on his statements on Facebook and other social media, he retrenched and reiterated his stance instead of going home and doing the scientific research on the subject which he so obviously needs to do.
I am happy to see GMO researcher and author Jeffrey Smith publicly call out Neil deGrasse Tyson and challenge him to a debate. I’m not holding my breath. The last time a GMO/Monsanto shill agreed to a public debate, he was dismantled and humiliated by a fifteen year old girl.
I also heartily encourage Mr. Tyson to take some time off work and work on a GMO farm for a summer. There’s some wonderful GMO cornfields in Iowa that might be looking for farmhands. There’s nothing quite like an afternoon of breathing in heavy doses of Round-Up.
