Glen Kealy exposes the hidden not talked about history of Planet Earth

FREEMASONRY HAS HAD MANY NAMES~! ALTHOUGH FREEMASONRY HAS USED MANY THOUSANDS OF NAMES OVER NUMEROUS CENTURIES AN EASILY DEFINABLE COMMON THREAD LINKS THEM ALL TO~GET~HER! Freemasonry is "a war to the death against thinking women and those men who support them", which is being fought covertly by the descendants of the first Pedophile Predator Priests from the "Land of Punt", who were banned from participation in the affairs of Matrial Clan Society, some 60,000 years ago. Since then, they have by means of a step-by-step conspiracy, lied about world history, divided humans in order to conquer and destroyed the credibility of women as long range nurturers and planners; convinced some braindead men that they should themselves lead a new patriarchal elitist system (based on the works of Socrates, Plato and Aristotle), while in fact taking over the management of world affairs themselves under the cover of secret societies governed at the top, symbolically, by "men who wear dresses in public" (ie: Kings, Politicians, Priests, Judges, Lawyers, Doctors, Scientists, Arab Emirs, Scots and selected University Professors and Graduates ~ MBA, PHD and LLD). These Priest-Hoods have destroyed the paradise that was here long ago and now infest our word boxes with their confusing variety of languages (6000) and criminal financial system that rewards thieves and idiots.  
Isn't it time that we woke-up to these little known facts and respond appropriately.

Look up the meaning of the Word Persia in the dictionary

Red Asian
per means red/fire
Persians were made up of four separate groups from
Afghanistan Iraq, Iran and Median

The Persians are an Iranian ethnic group that make up over half the population of Iran.

    They share a common cultural system and are native speakers of the Persian language,  as well as closely related languages.

   The ancient Persians were a nomadic branch of the ancient Iranian population that entered the territory of modern-day Iran

    by the early 10th century BC.. Together with their compatriot allies,

    they established and ruled some of the world's most powerful empires,

     well-recognized for their massive cultural, political, and social influence covering much of the territory and population of the ancient world.  

      Throughout history, the Persians have contributed greatly to various forms of art and science,

       and own one of the world's most prominent literatures.

       In contemporary terminology, people of Persian heritage native specifically to present-day AfghanistanTajikistan, and Uzbekistan 

       are referred to as Tajikswhereas those in the eastern Caucasus (primarily the present-day Republic of Azerbaijan), 

       albeit heavily assimilated, are referred to as TatsHowever, historically, the terms TajikTat, and Persian 

        were synonymous and were used interchangeably, and many of the most influential Persian figures hailed from

      outside Iran's present-day borders to the northeast in Central Asia and Afghanistan and to a lesser extent to

      the northwest in the Caucasus proper.

      IRAC (/ˈaɪræk/ EYE-rak) is an acronym that generally stands for: Issue, Rule, Application, and Conclusion.

      It functions as a methodology for legal analysis.

     The IRAC format is mostly used in hypothetical questions in law school and bar exams.
      The Word Irac can be written also as Iraq.

       The words Medicine and Media come from the name of the country of Median

     The word Medi -cine
     is made up of Medi and Cine
   being medi  that will transform and change the body
    being Cine that will transform and change the brain/mind

    This group of people would make an arrangement with a group of people in Italy with a group of people in China

     to obtain high level technology from India and China

The genetic history of Ice Age Europe

Date: May 2, 2016

Source: Howard Hughes Medical Institute#

Summary: Analyses of ancient DNA from prehistoric humans paint a picture of dramatic population change in Europe from 45,000 to 7,000 years ago, according to a new study. The new genetic data reveal two big changes in prehistoric human populations that are closely linked to the end of the last Ice Age around 19,000 years ago.

Three ~31,000-year-old skulls from Dolni Vestonice in the Czech Republic. For the next five thousand years, all samples analyzed in this study -- whether from Belgium, the Czech Republic, Austria, or Italy -- are closely related, reflecting a population expansion associated with the Gravettian archaeological culture.

Analyses of ancient DNA from prehistoric humans paint a picture of dramatic population change in Europe from 45,000 to 7,000 years ago, according to a new study led by Howard Hughes Medical Institute Investigator David Reich at Harvard Medical School.

The new genetic data, published May 2, 2016 in Nature, reveal two big changes in prehistoric human populations that are closely linked to the end of the last Ice Age around 19,000 years ago. As the ice sheet retreated, Europe was repopulated by prehistoric humans from southwest Europe (e.g., Spain). Then, in a second event about 14,000 years ago, populations from the southeast (e.g., Turkey, Greece) spread into Europe, displacing the first group of humans.

Archeological studies have shown that modern humans swept into Europe about 45,000 years ago and caused the demise of the Neanderthals, indicated by the disappearance of Neanderthal tools in the archaeological record, explained Reich. The researchers also knew that during the Ice Age -- a long period of time that ended about 12,000 years ago, with its peak intensity between 25,000 and 19,000 years ago -- glaciers covered Scandinavia and northern Europe all the way to northern France. As the ice sheets retreated beginning 19,000 years ago, prehistoric humans spread back into northern Europe.

But prior to this study, there were only four samples of prehistoric European modern humans 45,000 to 7,000 years old for which genomic data were available, which made it all but impossible to understand how human populations migrated or evolved during this period. "Trying to represent this vast period of European history with just four samples is like trying to summarize a movie with four still images. With 51 samples, everything changes; we can follow the narrative arc; we get a vivid sense of the dynamic changes over time," said Reich. "And what we see is a population history that is no less complicated than that in the last 7,000 years, with multiple episodes of population replacement and immigration on a vast and dramatic scale, at a time when the climate was changing dramatically."

The genetic data show that, beginning 37,000 years ago, all Europeans come from a single founding population that persisted through the Ice Age, said Reich. The founding population has some deep branches in different parts of Europe, one of which is represented by a specimen from Belgium. This branch seems to have been displaced in most parts of Europe 33,000 years ago, but around 19,000 years ago, a population related to it re-expanded across Europe, Reich explained. Based on the earliest sample in which this ancestry is observed, it is plausible that this population expanded from the southwest, present-day Spain, after the Ice Age peaked.

The second event that the researchers detected happened 14,000 years ago. "We see a new population turnover in Europe, and this time it seems to be from the east, not the west," said Reich. "We see very different genetics spreading across Europe that displaces the people from the southwest who were there before. These people persisted for many thousands of years until the arrival of farming."

The researchers also detected some mixture with Neanderthals, around 45,000 years ago, as modern humans spread across Europe. The prehistoric human populations contained three to six percent of Neanderthal DNA, but today most humans only have about two percent. "Neanderthal DNA is slightly toxic to modern humans," explained Reich, and this study provides evidence that natural selection is removing Neanderthal ancestry.

The study was an equal collaboration of David Reich's laboratory with the laboratories of Svante Pääbo and Johannes Krause, which worked together to extract and analyze the DNA from these ancient bones. Ancient specimens are frequently contaminated with microbial DNA, as well as DNA from archaeologists or lab technicians who have handled the specimens.

To get around these problems, the research team used a technique called in-solution hybrid capture enrichment. The team used about 1.2 million 52-base-pair DNA sequences corresponding to positions in the human genome that they were interested in as bait to target specific segments of DNA. After they washed the ancient DNA over the 1.2 million probe sequences, the researchers sequenced the ancient DNA that was captured by the probes.

To eliminate contamination that may have been introduced from handling the specimens, the researchers restricted analysis of many of the samples to sequences that had characteristic lesions of ancient DNA -- a cytosine to uracil error at the beginning of the sequence. Modern DNA typically does not have these errors, so contamination can be avoided by restricting the analysis to the sequences that do have them, said Reich.

"The ability to obtain genome-scale data from ancient bones is a new technology that's only been around for the last five or six years," Reich emphasized. "It's a new scientific instrument that makes it possible to look at things that have not been looked at before."

Evolution and the ice age

Date: February 26, 2013

Summary: Scientists are discovering how the evolution of ecosystems has to be taken into account when speculating between different geological eras. Go back to the time of the dinosaurs or to the single-celled organisms at the origins of life, and it is obvious that ecosystems existing more than 65 million years ago and around four billion years ago cannot be simply surmised from those of today.

Dr John Stewart has made important contributions to a growing body of work that shows how the evolution of ecosystems has to be taken into account when speculating between different geological eras. Go back to the time of the dinosaurs or to the single-celled organisms at the origins of life, and it is obvious that ecosystems existing more than 65 million years ago and around four billion years ago cannot be simply surmised from those of today.

Although the most drastic evolutionary changes occur over long spans of time, the effects can be seen relatively recently, argues Dr Stewart.

Stewart has studied the interaction between ancient ecosystems -- paleoecology -- and evolution of humans and other organisms over the past 100,000 years, undertaking everything from excavating cave sites in Belgium to exploring the desert of Abu Dhabi.

In one milestone collaborative study, Dr Stewart has taken existing knowledge of the geographical spread of plant and animal species throughout the warming and cooling of the Ice Ages to provide insights into human origins, including the evolution and extinction of Neanderthals.

He has also examined the rise of the 'first Europeans', along with the Denisovans -- a newly discovered group -- mysterious cousins of the Neanderthals, who occupied a vast realm stretching from the chill expanse of Siberia to the tropical forests of Indonesia.

The key insight in this work, conducted alongside Prof Chris Stringer of London's Natural History Museum, came from understanding the important role of the refuge taken by a species from harsher conditions -- known as a refugium -- which has a tremendous influence on the evolutionary future of the species. Once the climate changes again, for instance as ice sheets melt, these refuges can expand or connect up again.

But, of course, there's a twist. Evolution has also had a huge influence. The inhabitants are not the same as the original populations as a result of genetic mutations. The time spent apart in refuge generally serves to splinter a once unified species.

Previous research into hedgehogs, polar bears and other animals suggest that, even once an Ice Age ends and the different populations start intermingling again, they never really merge back together as a single group. This process drives important evolutionary changes, which can ultimately lead to the origins of a new species.

Ultimately, this explains why Homo sapiens are still here and our archaic human cousins went extinct some 30,000 years ago: our ancestors chose the right refuge to wait out the Ice Age.

Today, Dr Stewart's work has shifted away from fossil remains to ancient DNA. Traditionally insights into the evolution of species have come from fossils, but we now know that the genetic changes that underlie a major change in body shape can be minor.

"The most exciting development in my field has been the ability to analyse ancient DNA, which has begun to allow us to see evolution happening over the last several dozen thousand years," explains Dr Stewart.

His claim that climate change caused the Neanderthals' demise is supported by work by Love Dalén at the Swedish Museum of Natural History in Stockholm, who has looked at the genes in 13 Neanderthal fossils found in southern Europe and western Asia.

All Neanderthal fossils more than 48,000 years old, and those found in Asia, had a higher level of genetic diversity than later European fossils, suggesting that the Neanderthals probably went through an evolutionary 'bottleneck' where a significant percentage of them perished.

When a bottleneck occurs, the remaining individuals are often a much less diverse group, which makes it more difficult for them to evolve and adapt to a changing environment.

Dr Stewart, who is doing DNA studies in collaboration with teams at the Natural History Museum in Stockholm and the Universities of York and Royal Holloway, is now focusing on using genetics to elucidate the evolution of a wide range of creatures.

He has conducted recent studies at the cave site of Trou Al'Wesse, a refugium once occupied by Neanderthals, in Belgium. He is studying how animal populations changed as a result of Ice Age climate change to understand the evolutionary processes that have taken place over the last 50,000 years.

But his work is not confined to the past. It informs the present too. Recently there had been a proposal to eradicate the Eagle Owl because it killed other birds, such as hen harriers, and was not thought to be a native species. But Dr Stewart's studies of fossils and more recent archaeological records revealed the bird, or something like it, has been present in Britain for up to 700,000 years. The plan to cull the birds has now been abandoned.

And his research can help us predict the future. The fear is that our ever-expanding impact on the planet will trigger ecological collapse. But the only way to know for sure is to look back into the past.

"By studying how organisms have reacted to past climate change," explains Dr Stewart, "we can learn lessons about what may take place due to human-caused global warming."

Glen Kealey - Workshop #1

    Glen Kealy Paper
    Assembly of Independent Canadians
    Bringing People Together

Freemasonry was the first organized religion.

They fabricated all the other religions that came after.
They invented Gods, Lucifer, Angels and all that crap in order to dumb-down the masses.
It sure has worked, if one goes by the number of people who now defend their right to abandon the use of their brains.  
The definition of FAITH is ...
"to believe in some implausible premiss no matter how much evidence there is to the contrary", ie: BRAINDEAD. 

Words From The SculPTor ~CONTRACT vs CONSPIRACY~

A contract is
a legally enforceable agreement,
not necessarily in writing,
between two or more capable people,
to do or not to do, some lawful and,
genuinely intended act.

A conspiracy is
an agreement between
two or more persons,
to commit a crime or,
accomplish a legal purpose
through illegal action.


Each and every one of us was programed from birth by the SYSTEM. When we admit it and accept that those things we did and thought in the past were the result of programing, then, and only then, can we make a conscience decision not to feel bad about who we were before, but instead grasp at the new opportunity to become ourselves and take full responsibility for our actions or inactions in the future. This should be the only way that we can ever claim being “born again”.


Each letter of the alphabet is a Philosophers Stone.

The shape-shifted lowercase “S” of the Desdemona typeface is the Holy Grail / Graal (the pictogram is a symbol of the uterus implant designed for a male hermaphrodite).

Note the “PH” link between alPHabet, PHilosoPHer, HermaPHrodite, PHarmacist, ShePHerd. Then, you will overstand the importance of “HP”; Hewlett Packard who let the dogs out~!

Phoenicians are an admixture of Sea Peoples, ShePHerd Kings and Canaanites. Before moving on to Carthage they gave up Canaan to the Hittite/Hebrews, who are otherwise known as the Hycsos and were being evicted from Egypt. Before settling down in Canaan the Hebrews were given a 40 year refresher course on what was expected of them, by the Horites (God – Top Dog Priests), at Mount Sinai.

Fat-ima = Fat I am = Phat/Ptah (God of Zoro-Astrian/Zoro-Babel Freemasonry)
as in Top Hat or Frigian Tuqes, etc.


Freemasonry’s symbols suggest that humanity needs to be shape-shifted to “bee” in order to achieve EQUILIBRIUM. A “bee” is also called a ring. The Lord of the Rings is the Queen Bee. In a beehive, genders are not required except for procreation. Freemasonry believes this matter can be best handled by a single gender now known to philosophers as Ubermensch, Beyondman or Superman. “IT” is a Hermaphrodite.

Secret Coding hidden in Language is the way they currently implement this plan. Faith based Organized Religion is their proof of its success. When all the kinks have finally been worked out through testing on their Guinea Pigs, presently known as the Human Race, humans will be destroyed and replaced with Beyondman.

At that time the Black Capstone will be retrieved and flown from the Kaaba at Mecca, in Saudi Arabia, and deposited on top of the Great White Pyramid, at Giza in Egypt.

The plan is an 8000 year criminal conspiracy, a Zoro-Astrian / Zoro-Babel Cabal known to some as the “Gulf of Aqaba Kabala” which is approaching its ultimate conclusion. The signs are all around.

Thus Spake Zarathustra~!


The System, in an attempt to control comprehension, has imposed a number of taboos which they claim are out of bounds for discussion among civilized peoples. These taboos fall under the general headings of sex, politics and religion.

Those of us who now overstand have discovered that one can never come to terms with reality unless these three topics of discussion become the main topics of our communications.

As an example one should take a second look at how we treat the subject of women’s breasts. Masonry’s Pilgrims to America made certain that “nice” ladies were dressed from foot to chin. The System then allowed “Topless” dancers and prostitutes, then equating the women who do it to the derogatory term “slut”. A woman who marries for “security” or “political correctness” is never described as a slut.

The fact of the matter is that nature gave women breasts in order to feed their young. Breasts are not “sex objects” but are symbols of FEMALE POWER, symbols which are overstood instinctively by all “normal” males. This is why males instinctively look to see if the person they are speaking with has breasts. In a matrial society this is how males knew whether or not the person they were speaking with had the authority to give them directions as to what task they should perform next. Also, this is why females are still taught to reject this natural male instinct. By going along with it this deminishes the political power of women and plays right into the hands of “men who wear dresses (robes) in public”.


Following a number of years of investigation by the Canadian Institute for Political Integrity into the question :

“Who owns the government?”

It is our “FINDING” that all of the national governments of the world are simply AGENCIES of middle-Eastern Money Creators and TAX COLLECTORS; whose roots are firmly entrenched in Persian, Pedophile, Predatory PRIEST~HOODS (see: Zoro-Aster/Zoro-Babel); Priests who couch their control over us in fabricated diplomatic languages to veil their PREDATORY SYSTEM which, at its heart, is modeled on the CHESSBOARD and the Game of Chess.

These MONEY CREATING and TAX COLLECTING PRIEST~HOODS directly control the reins of FREEMASONRY, the Secret Society that in turn controls all POLITICS,

ALL PRIESTS, OF ALL RELIGIONS, whether they are publicly styled Priest, Reverend, Bishop, Cardinal, Monk, Llama, or Pope, ultimately report through a chain-of-command that leads directly to the MONEY CREATING/TAX COLLECTING PRIEST~HOODS. Religion is a second level of direct taxation that taxes your current dreams as well as your hopes for everlasting life.



Freemasonry is “a war to the death against thinking women and those men who support them”, which is being fought covertly by the descendants of the first Pedophile Predator Priests from the “Land of Punt”, who were banned from participation in the affairs of Matrial Clan Society, some 60,000 years ago.

Since then, they have by means of a step-by-step conspiracy, lied about world history, divided humans in order to conquer and destroyed the credibility of women as long range nurturers and planners; convinced some braindead men that they should themselves lead a new patriarchal elitist system (based on the works of Socrates, Plato and Aristotle), while in fact taking over the management of world affairs themselves under the cover of secret societies governed at the top, symbolically, by “men who wear dresses in public” (ie: Kings, Politicians, Priests, Judges, Lawyers, Doctors, Scientists, Arab Emirs, Scots and selected University Professors and Graduates ~ MBA, PHD and LLD).

These Priest-Hoods have destroyed the paradise that was here long ago and now infest our word boxes with their confusing variety of languages (6000) and criminal financial system that rewards thieves and idiots.

Isn’t it time that we woke-up to these little known facts and respond appropriately.


Many here don’t overstand. Few appear to comprehend Ultimate Reality. Mostly, they have fallen into the trap of Hegelian Dialectics. They believe that political opponents, military opponents, religious opponents and commercial opponents are real “competitors”, instead of in fact being the antipodean Trojan Horses or Talking Mules they are, both sides working towards the same Masonic goal for the End Times of the PlanET

Cancer vs Symptoms

Protesters have been pointing at the “symptoms” of the disease for 6,000 years and it hasn’t changed a damn thing. Symptoms are a “ball of steel wool”, a maze that leads you nowhere.

The Rockefellers have been pointing at the symptoms of Cancer from the Sloan Kettering institute without ever divulging the cure for Cancer. It has become a cash-cow business.

I suggest that if everyone concentrated on the Cancer itself (ie: who got us into the mess we’re in) rather than on the maze of never ending symptoms (ie: chemtrails and 9/11) we would turn the SYSTEM around on its ear in 20 years time.

Time is of the essence.

When I Woke Up!

When I finally woke up I took a look around. I saw city halls, courthouses, houses of parliament, churches, schools, and universities by the hundreds and thousands. I saw systems – systems for managing the land, the air, and the water; systems for managing human behaviour; systems for managing religion; systems for managing learning; systems for managing food, shelter, clothing; systems for managing love and procreation: a vast complex of carefully engineered systems. I saw millions of people working, not for themselves, but for someone else. I saw millions of people doing, not what they themselves want to do, but what someone else wants them to do. I saw the depressing evidence of a people who have externalized and institutionalized – in fact, have tried to standardize – the very nature of humanity.

I saw a whole people who’ve lost the way of life and in its place have built a technological monster which does most of their hard work, carries their water, delivers their food, raises their kids, makes their decisions, says their prayers, transports them, “informs” them, entertains them, and controls the people it serves, absolutely. I also saw that the monster, seemingly unable to manage itself, was running wild, totally out of visible control, ripping the land to pieces, spreading poisons, filling the air with filth, dumping garbages and shit in the rivers and lakes and oceans. I saw all that, and I saw the people, millions of them, crowded together in cities, living side by side in towns, villages, rural areas. But I didn’t see a single community.

Is someone doing all of this on purpose? Yes!

One Response to “When I Woke Up!”

Withdraw from this evil world system in every way you can. Protect yourself from further mind control. Getting rid of your TV would be a good start.

Quietly on your own, take care of yourself and your loved ones.

I am a Christian and to me the only way “out” of this system is for each of us to belong to the only “system” that will save us.

Be Not Conformed to This World

John 17:15 I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.
16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.

Romans 12:1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.
2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

1 Corinthians 3:18 Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise.
19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness.

1 Corinthians 7:29 But this I say, brethren, the time is short: it remaineth, that both they that have wives be as though they had none;
30 And they that weep, as though they wept not; and they that rejoice, as though they rejoiced not; and they that buy, as though they possessed not;
31 And they that use this world, as not abusing it: for the fashion of this world passeth away.

Galatians 1:3 Grace be to you and peace from God the Father, and from our Lord Jesus Christ,
4 Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father:
5 To whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

Galatians 4:1 Now I say, That the heir, as long as he is a child, differeth nothing from a servant, though he be lord of all;
2 But is under tutors and governors until the time appointed of the father.
3 Even so we, when we were children, were in bondage under the elements of the world:
4 But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law,
5 To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons.
6 And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.
7 Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.
8 Howbeit then, when ye knew not God, ye did service unto them which by nature are no gods.
9 But now, after that ye have known God, or rather are known of God, how turn ye again to the weak and beggarly elements, whereunto ye desire again to be in bondage?
10 Ye observe days, and months, and times, and years.
11 I am afraid of you, lest I have bestowed upon you labour in vain.

Galatians 6:14 But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world.

Ephesians 2:1 And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins;
2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:
3 Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.
Ephesians 6:11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Philippians 2:14 Do all things without murmurings and disputings:
15 That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;
16 Holding forth the word of life; that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, that I have not run in vain, neither laboured in vain.

Colossians 2:6 As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him:
7 Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.
8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.

Colossians 2:20 Wherefore if ye be dead with Christ from the rudiments of the world, why, as though living in the world, are ye subject to ordinances,
21 (Touch not; taste not; handle not;
22 Which all are to perish with the using;) after the commandments and doctrines of men?
23 Which things have indeed a shew of wisdom in will worship, and humility, and neglecting of the body: not in any honour to the satisfying of the flesh.
3:1 If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.
2 Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.

Titus 2:11 For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men,
12 Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world;
13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;
14 Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.

James 1:27 Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.

James 4:4 Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.

2 Peter 1:2 Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord,
3 According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:
4 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

2 Peter 2:20 For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning.
21 For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them.
22 But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.

1 John 2:15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
17 And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.

1 John 5:3 For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.
4 For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.
5 Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?

1 John 5:18 We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not.
19 And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness.


Words From The SculPTorIn "Glen Kealey"


Alan Watt's Show from June 4th, 2009In "Alan Watt"
The 6th Hermetic Principle – Cause and Effect

“Every Cause has its Effect; every Effect has its Cause; everything happens according to Law; Chance is but a name for Law not recognized; there are many planes of causation, but nothing escapes the Law’  – The Kybalion

‘This Principle embodies the fact that there is a Cause for every Effect; an Effect from every Cause. It explains that: ‘Everything happens according to Law’; that nothing ever ‘merely happens’; that there is no such thing as Chance; that while there are various planes of Cause and Effect, the higher dominating the lower planes, still nothing ever entirely escapes the Law. The Hermetists understand the art and methods of rising above the ordinary plane of Cause and Effect, to a certain degree, and by mentally rising to a higher plane they become Causers instead of Effects. The masses of people are carried along, obedient to environment; the wills and desires of others stronger than themselves; heredity; suggestion; and other outward causes moving them about like pawns on the Chessboard of Life. But the Masters, rising to the plane above, dominate their moods, characters, qualities, and powers, as well as the environment surrounding them, and become Movers instead of pawns. They help to PLAY THE GAME OF LIFE, instead of being played and moved about by other wills and environment. They USE the Principle instead of being its tools. The Masters obey the Causation of the higher planes, but they help to RULE on their own plane. In this statement there is condensed a wealth of Hermetic knowledge – let him read who can.”

– Dr. Jane Ma’ati Smith, The Emerald Tablet of Hermes and The Kybalion

This is one small part of the teachings of the Mystery Schools of Babylon. Think about what was written in that passage from Dr. Smith’s book. It explains A LOT about how the world we live in today is still governed in the same manner that it was thousands of years ago and yet the majority of the people living today are ‘none the wiser’ to the fact.

“The world is governed by very different personages from what is imagined by those who are not behind the scenes.” – Benjamin Disraeli

Five Friends and Mystery Babylon

In Freemasonry there is a circle of five friends. Italy, France, Germany, England, and America are the five circles of friends. These five friends are referred to as the Olympiads. That’s why the Olympiad Organization’s symbol is five circles, the five masonic circles of friends.

The Olympic torch, is the torch of Prometheus, the God who stole fire for the service of man. In New York in front of Rockefeller Plaza you will see the statue of Prometheus, holding in his hand a flame. The same flame that the US dime has, the same flame that the Statue of Liberty has. In fact, the Statue of Liberty doesn’t represent liberty at all. It is actually a statue of the Elites goddess Semiramis,(who is standing above a sun if looked at from above) from their ancient mystery Babylonian religion. The Statue of Liberty was a gift from French Freemason’s and an exact replica of the statue can be found in France. The torch and flame is also used in many corporate logo’s like Amoco Oil for example.

The liberty bell, another supposed symbol of liberty, is in actuality a symbol of the Brotherhood of the Bell. Bell, being Bel, an ancient God in their mystery Babylonian religion, who today we call Beelzebub or Yahweh.

Where in the World Is Julian Assange?

(Nov. 30) — Seemingly everyone wants a piece of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange this week, with Interpol, Sweden, the United States, Australia, Sarah Palin, Hillary Rodham Clinton and Bill O’Reilly joining the posse.

Palin says he should be hunted down “like al-Qaida.” O’Reilly calls him a “sleazebag.” Government officials want him tried for espionage, and Interpol is after him for alleged sex crimes. Others want him banned from the Internet.

Good luck with all of that. The 39-year-old recluse and self-described misfit — whose latest secret-documents dump comprises more than 250,000 diplomatic memos — has been on the lam for months.


Amid an escalating series of controversies, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has been laying low recently and was last known to be in London.

So where is he? This month he’s apparently been in London, where he gave an interview to Forbes magazine, posted online this week after the chat was recorded at an undisclosed London apartment. The Australian native has cut and dyed his hair again to avoid detection, and promised that his site’s rage-inspiring and ongoing upload of U.S. State Department documents was only the beginning — of his latest controversy.

Up next is the disclosure of thousands of damning internal documents showing corruption by a major American bank, he told Forbes. But Assange won’t say which bank or give specifics of what it did wrong. That’s not unusual for a man who is both revered and reviled.

Assange has been laying low for several weeks now, staying with friends, using credit cards owned by others or paying in cash, canceling public appearances at the last minute or sending others in his stead. He is dogged by rape allegations in Sweden and is now under investigation by the U.S. Justice Department and his native Australia.

On Monday, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder said Assange was under criminal investigation by federal agents. “This is not saber-rattling,” he told reporters at a news conference, The Associated Press reported. Saying the Obama administration condemns the publication of classified State Department documents, Holder said the posts endangered national security and the safety of diplomats abroad.

Secretary of State Clinton said much the same. “Some mistakenly applaud those responsible,” Clinton said in Washington this week. “There is nothing laudable about endangering innocent people.”

Not true, Assange shot back in a series of e-mails to ABC News from a clandestine hideout. “U.S. officials have for 50 years trotted out this line when they are afraid the public is going to see how they really behave,” he wrote. (EXACTLY!!!!!)

Apparently, only one country welcomes him — Ecuador, which offered him residency, Reuters reported today. The South American country is highly critical of U.S. doctrines and policies.

Earlier this month, Sweden issued an international sex crimes warrant against Assange in connection with two incidents in which women claimed rape and molestation. Assange said both interludes were consensual sex. This week, he was placed on Interpol’s wanted list, according the agency’s website.

Assange fled to Sweden in August, seeking protection for WikiLeaks under the country’s whistle-blowing laws after he posted nearly 400,000 classified documents pertaining to the Iraq war. Weeks before, he had posted some 77,000 classified Pentagon documents on the Afghan conflict.

Then the rape allegations surfaced, and Assange was on the run again.

In October, he sat for an interview in London with The New York Times, sporting a beanie cap and a wispy beard and speaking just above a whisper lest he be overheard. The former computer hacker said, essentially, that he was doing the Lord’s work in publishing leaked secret and classified documents.

“By being determined to be on this path, and not to compromise, I’ve wound up in an extraordinary situation,” he said

ALTHOUGH FREEMASONRY HAS USED MANY THOUSANDS OF NAMES OVER NUMEROUS CENTURIES AN EASILY DEFINABLE COMMON THREAD LINKS THEM ALL TO~GET~HER! Freemasonry is "a war to the death against thinking women and those men who support them", which is being fought covertly by the descendants of the first Pedophile Predator Priests from the "Land of Punt", who were banned from participation in the affairs of Matrial Clan Society, some 60,000 years ago. Since then, they have by means of a step-by-step conspiracy, lied about world history, divided humans in order to conquer and destroyed the credibility of women as long range nurturers and planners; convinced some braindead men that they should themselves lead a new patriarchal elitist system (based on the works of Socrates, Plato and Aristotle), while in fact taking over the management of world affairs themselves under the cover of secret societies governed at the top, symbolically, by "men who wear dresses in public" (ie: Kings, Politicians, Priests, Judges, Lawyers, Doctors, Scientists, Arab Emirs, Scots and selected University Professors and Graduates ~ MBA, PHD and LLD). These Priest-Hoods have destroyed the paradise that was here long ago and now infest our word boxes with their confusing variety of languages (6000) and criminal financial system that rewards thieves and idiots. Isn't it time that we woke-up to these little known facts and respond appropriately.


From Here 2 Eternity~! Life begins Green, at 40. Power is Red, at 55. Putrification is Yellow, at 70. Wait until you're 81 and then you will be replaced by 99. The Philosopher's Stone and the Holy Graal came to us from the Pyrenees, from those who have "seen fire". These would be the Benedictines and their cut-outs the Cistercians and Cluniacs. They are responsible for your "voice box invasion". They created all modern languages beginning with Horite Abyssinian which is now called Basque/Vasco. Everytime you o~pen your mouth to speak, or move your hand to write, you unknowingly "will~their~will"! Low Priests are Pedophiles while High Priests are on MUSHROOMS. In reality Masonry began in 58800BC with the eviction of "Pedophiles" from Matriarchal Clan Society. These predators established the first "Priest~hood" and declared their eviction "the Original Sin". The Priests vowed revenge against women and original peoples. By the end of the last Ice Age they were ready to put their plan for a New World Order, a Patriarchal Society, to work. This is when they "Freed" a large number of Genetically Modified Masons (Caucasians) to work on Human Engineering; thereby fabricating FREE~MASONRY! Today we are at the End Times of this plan-ET called 8.0 and await the "RISING" of UBERMENSCH, Beyondman, Overman or Superman, whatever ONE (UN in French) wishes to call the cloned HERMAPHRODITE they have now fabricated to take us forward from here into eternity. Freemasonry was re-organized in the 12th century, in order to complete the take-over of Europe by the Priest~Hoods, and then, to establish a base in North America (the monk Serra in CaliPHornia). Shriner Pilgrims were then mandated to locate 13 colonies on the east coast which would forever be controlled through French priests, in Quebec Canada and Basque priests, in Mexico. The American priests located in Boston while the hoods set up in Nevada. They all swear their vows of allegiance to the "Cult of the Virgin"; UBERMENSCH, the male Hermaphrodite.

Published on Mar 8, 2009How do they do it~! How does Freemasonry brainwash human beings and turn them into sheep-people. First, at the head of the parade, they place their Talking Mules in the media who preach the benefits of faith and politics. Then, at the back of the herd, they position their Trojan Horses, in the Lodge, Unions and on the Net. The Talking Mules then BRAY their guilt-trip out loud; "Hee~Haw, follow the Yaw~Way of LOVE". The sheep-people then move out to-get-her, like lemmings on the way to the edge of a precipice, slaves who do their own shopping, on the way to their own crucifixion. The SculPTor

Freemasonry's symbols suggest that humanity needs to be shape-shifted to "bee" in order to achieve EQUILIBRIUM. A "bee" is also called a ring. The Lord of the Rings is the Queen Bee. In a beehive, genders are not required except for procreation. Freemasonry believes this matter can be best handled by a single gender now known to philosophers as Ubermensch, Beyondman or Superman. "IT" is a Hermaphrodite. Secret Coding hidden in Language is the way they currently implement this plan. Faith based Organized Religion is their proof of its success. When all the kinks have finally been worked out through testing on their Guinea Pigs, presently known as the Human Race, humans will be destroyed and replaced with Beyondman. At that time the Black Capstone will be retrieved and flown from the Kaaba at Mecca, in Saudi Arabia, and deposited on top of the Great White Pyramid, at Giza in Egypt. The plan is an 8000 year criminal conspiracy, a Zoro-Astrian / Zoro-Babel Cabal known to some as the "Gulf of Aqaba Kabala" which is approaching its ultimate conclusion. The signs are all around. Thus Spake Zarathustra~!

You can only RE~SEARCH : while ancient Troglodytes did the original SEARCH ! He guided the Greeks on their expeditions to the East. He secretly guides Western Freemasonry. Today, He is the priest, their Unknown Superior (Jaques~Basque). This is how ancient subterranean Troglodyte Priests described themselves to outsiders in 1894. It is a step-by-step explanation given only to selected Masons within a context premised by Zoro-Astrian Freemasonry's "business plan" (they call it prophecies) which, at that time, urgently required a quantum leap in scientific discovery if they were to ‹learn to flyŠ and remain on schedule for their planned "End of the Earth" rendez-vous (before the year 2059). "He was verily a wonderful being; an eyeless creature (metaphorically speaking), and yet possessed of sight and perception beyond that of mortal man; a creature who had been locked in the earth, and yet was more familiar with its surface than a philosopher; a cavern-bred monstrosity, and yet possessed of the mind of a sage; he was a scientific expert, a naturalist, a metaphysical reasoner, a critic of religion, and a prophet. He could see in absolute darkness as well as in daylight; without a compass he could guide a boat over a trackless sea, and could accomplish feats that throw Gulliver and Munchausen into disrepute." Troglodytes "predict" the future by means of their first-hand knowledge of the most ancient past and of what they are about to orchestrate. It‰s no miracle. I do not remember to have said that they were cavern-bred; they did. Did I say they were always cavern beings? Did I assert that they had never lived among us mortals of upper surface earth? Do you only believe only what you see, or believe that all what others can do, you can do also? If so, then please, let me see you kiss your elbow. Once you dare relate ultimate reality others will call you mad, and the more clearly you attempt to explain the facts that you have witnessed, the less they will listen to you; such has been the fate of others when confronting the BRAINDEAD. Freemasons such as Jim and Brother Steve are programmed to play upon this fact. Forgive them ~ they know not what they do. The price of being truthful is that twenty people will reject your views for everyone that considers them as being possible or even plausible. Therefore, before you speak you must first learn to live with rejection. IÖAMÖTHEÖMANÖWHOÖDIDÖIT The SculPTor (who comes in on their ass)

History of genetic engineering

Genetic recombination caused by human activity has been occurring since around 12,000 BC, when humans first began to domesticateorganisms. Genetic engineering as the direct transfer of DNA from one organism to another was first accomplished by Herbert Boyer and Stanley Cohen in 1972. It was the result of a series of advancements in techniques that allowed the direct modification of the genome. Important advances included the discovery of restriction enzymes and DNA ligases, the ability to design plasmids and technologies like polymerase chain reaction and sequencingTransformation of the DNA into a host organism was accomplished with the invention of biolisticsAgrobacterium-mediated recombination and microinjection.

The first genetically modified animal was a mouse created in 1974 by Rudolf Jaenisch. In 1976 the technology was commercialised, with the advent of genetically modified bacteria that produced somatostatin, followed by insulin in 1978. In 1983 an antibiotic resistant gene was inserted into tobacco, leading to the first genetically engineered plant. Advances followed that allowed scientists to manipulate and add genes to a variety of different organisms and induce a range of different effects. Plants were first commercialized with virus resistant tobacco released in China in 1992. The first genetically modified food was the Flavr Savr tomato marketed in 1994. By 2010, 29 countries had planted commercialized biotech crops. In 2000 a paper published in Science introduced golden rice, the first food developed with increased nutrient value.

Herbert Boyer (pictured) and Stanley Cohen created the first genetically modified organism in 1972


Genetic engineering is the direct manipulation of an organism's genome using certain biotechnology techniques that have only existed since the 1970s.  Human directed genetic manipulation was occurring much earlier, beginning with the domestication of plants and animals through artificial selection. The dog is believed to be the first animal domesticated, possibly arising from a common ancestor of the grey wolf,  with archeological evidence dating to about 12,000 BC. Other carnivores domesticated in prehistoric times include the cat, which cohabited with human 9,500 years ago. Archeological evidence suggests sheep, cattle, pigs and goats were domesticated between 9 000 BC and 8 000 BC in the Fertile Crescent.

The first evidence of plant domestication comes from emmer and einkorn wheat found in pre-Pottery Neolithic A villages in Southwest Asia dated about 10,500 to 10,100 BC. The Fertile Crescent of Western Asia, Egypt, and India were sites of the earliest planned sowing and harvesting of plants that had previously been gathered in the wild. Independent development of agriculture occurred in northern and southern China, Africa's SahelNew Guinea and several regions of the Americas. The eight Neolithic founder crops (emmer wheateinkorn wheatbarleypeaslentilsbitter vetchchick peas and flax) had all appeared by about 7000 BC. Horticulture first appears in the Levant during the Chalcolithic period about 6 800 to 6,300 BC.[9] Due to the soft tissues, archeological evidence for early vegetables is scarce. The earliest vegetable remains have been found in Egyptian caves that date back to the 2nd millennium BC.

Selective breeding of domesticated plants was once the main way early farmers shaped organisms to suit their needs. Charles Darwin described three types of selection: methodical selection, wherein humans deliberately select for particular characteristics; unconscious selection, wherein a characteristic is selected simply because it is desirable; and natural selection, wherein a trait that helps an organism survive better is passed on. :25 Early breeding relied on unconscious and natural selection. The introduction of methodical selection is unknown.:25 Common characteristics that were bred into domesticated plants include grains that did not shatter to allow easier harvesting, uniform ripening, shorter lifespans that translate to faster growing, loss of toxic compounds, and productivity.:27–30 Some plants, like the Banana, were able to be propagated by vegetative cloning. Offspring often did not contain seeds, and therefore sterile. However, these offspring were usually juicier and larger. Propagation through cloning allows these mutant varieties to be cultivated despite their lack of seeds.

Hybridization was another way that rapid changes in plant's makeup were introduced. It often increased vigor in plants, and combined desirable traits together. Hybridization most likely first occurred when humans first grew similar, yet slightly different plants in close proximity.[11]:32 Triticum aestivum, wheat used in baking bread, is an allopolyploid. Its creation is the result of two separate hybridization events.[12]

Grafting can transfer chloroplasts (specialised DNA in plants that can conduct photosynthesis), mitichondrial DNA and the entire cell nucleus containing the genome to potentially make a new species making grafting a form of natural genetic engineering.

X-rays were first used to deliberately mutate plants in 1927. Between 1927 and 2007, more than 2,540 genetically mutated plant varieties had been produced using x-rays.

DNA studies suggested that the dog most likely arose from a common ancestor with the grey wolf.[1]


Various genetic discoveries have been essential in the development of genetic engineering. Genetic inheritance was first discovered by Gregor Mendel in 1865 following experiments crossing peas. Although largely ignored for 34 years he provided the first evidence of hereditary segregation and independent assortment. In 1889 Hugo de Vries came up with the name "(pan)gene" after postulating that particles are responsible for inheritance of characteristics[16] and the term "genetics" was coined by William Bateson in 1905. In 1928 Frederick Griffith proved the existence of a "transforming principle" involved in inheritance, which Avery, MacLeod and McCarty later (1944) identified as DNAEdward Lawrie Tatum and George Wells Beadledeveloped the central dogma that genes code for proteins in 1941. The double helix structure of DNA was identified by James Watson and Francis Crick in 1953.

As well as discovering how DNA works, tools had to be developed that allowed it to be manipulated. In 1970 Hamilton Smith's lab discovered restriction enzymes that allowed DNA to be cut at specific places and separated out on an electrophoresis gel. This enabled scientists to isolate genes from an organism's genome.[18] DNA ligases, that join broken DNA together, had been discovered earlier in 1967 and by combining the two enzymes it was possible to "cut and paste" DNA sequences to create recombinant DNAPlasmids, discovered in 1952,  became important tools for transferring information between cells and replicating DNA sequences. Frederick Sanger developed a method for sequencing DNA in 1977, greatly increasing the genetic information available to researchers. Polymerase chain reaction (PCR), developed by Kary Mullis in 1983, allowed small sections of DNA to be amplified and aided identification and isolation of genetic material.

As well as manipulating the DNA, techniques had to be developed for its insertion (known as transformation) into an organism's genome. Griffiths experiment had already shown that some bacteria had the ability to naturally take up and express foreign DNA. Artificial competence was induced in Escherichia coli in 1970 when Morton Mandel and Akiko Higa showed that it could take up bacteriophage λ after treatment with calcium chloride solution (CaCl2).Two years later, Stanley Cohen showed that CaCl2 treatment was also effective for uptake of plasmid DNA. Transformation using electroporation was developed in the late 1980s, increasing the efficiency and bacterial range.  In 1907 a bacterium that caused plant tumors, Agrobacterium tumefaciens, was discovered and in the early 1970s the tumor inducing agent was found to be a DNA plasmid called the Ti plasmid. By removing the genes in the plasmid that caused the tumor and adding in novel genes researchers were able to infect plants with A. tumefaciens and let the bacteria insert their chosen DNA into the genomes of the plants.

Griffith proved the existence of a "transforming principle", which Avery, MacLeod and McCarty later showed to be DNA
The bacterium Agrobacterium tumefaciens inserts T-DNA into infected plant cells, which is then incorporated into the plants genome.

Early genetically modified organisms

In 1974 Rudolf Jaenisch created the first GM animal.

n 1972 Paul Berg used restriction enzymes and DNA ligases to create the first recombinant DNA molecules. He combined DNA from the monkey virus SV40 with that of the lambda virus.  Herbert Boyer and Stanley Norman Cohen took Berg's work a step further and introduced recombinant DNA into a bacterial cell. Cohen was researching plasmids, while Boyers work involved restriction enzymes. They recognised the complementary nature of their work and teamed up in 1972. Together they found a restriction enzyme that cut the pSC101 plasmid at a single point and were able to insert and ligate a gene that conferred resistance to the kanamycin antibiotic into the gap. Cohen had previously devised a method where bacteria could be induced to take up a plasmid and using this they were able to create a bacteria that survived in the presence of the kanamycin. This represented the first genetically modified organism. They repeated experiments showing that other genes could be expressed in bacteria, including one from the toad Xenopus laevis, the first cross kingdom transformation.

In 1974 Rudolf Jaenisch created a transgenic mouse by introducing foreign DNA into its embryo, making it the world’s first transgenic animal.  Jaenisch was studying mammalian cells infected with simian virus 40 (SV40) when he happened to read a paper from Beatrice Mintz describing the generation of chimera mice. He took his SV40 samples to Mintz's lab and injected them into early mouse embryos expecting tumours to develop. The mice appeared normal, but after using radioactive probes he discovered that the virus had integrated itself into the mice genome. However the mice did not pass the transgene to their offspring. In 1981 the laboratories of Frank Ruddle, Frank Constantini and Elizabeth Lacy injected purified DNA into a single-cell mouse embryo and showed transmission of the genetic material to subsequent generations.

The first genetically engineered plant was tobacco, reported in 1983.[35] It was developed by Michael W. BevanRichard B. Flavell and Mary-Dell Chilton by creating a chimeric gene that joined an antibiotic resistant gene to the T1 plasmid from Agrobacterium. The tobacco was infected with Agrobacterium transformed with this plasmid resulting in the chimeric gene being inserted into the plant. Through tissue culture techniques a single tobacco cell was selected that contained the gene and a new plant grown from it.


The development of genetic engineering technology led to concerns in the scientific community about potential risks. The development of a regulatory framework concerning genetic engineering began in 1975, at Asilomar, California. The Asilomar meeting recommended a set of guidelines regarding the cautious use of recombinant technology and any products resulting from that technology. The Asilomar recommendations were voluntary, but in 1976 the US National Institute of Health (NIH) formed a recombinant DNA advisory committee. This was followed by other regulatory offices (the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Food and Drug Administration (FDA), effectively making all recombinant DNA research tightly regulated in the USA.

In 1982 the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) released a report into the potential hazards of releasing genetically modified organisms into the environment as the first transgenic plants were being developed.  As the technology improved and genetically organisms moved from model organisms to potential commercial products the USA established a committee at the Office of Science and Technology (OSTP) to develop mechanisms to regulate the developing technology. In 1986 the OSTP assigned regulatory approval of genetically modified plants in the US to the USDA, FDA and EPA.[41] In the late 1980s and early 1990s, guidance on assessing the safety of genetically engineered plants and food emerged from organizations including the FAO and WHO.

The European Union first introduced laws requiring GMO's to be labelled in 1997. In 2013 Connecticut became the first state to enact a labeling law in the USA, although it would not take effect until other states followed suit

Research and medicine
The ability to insert, alter or remove genes in model organisms allowed scientists to study the genetic elements of human diseases. Genetically modified mice were created in 1984 that carried cloned oncogenes that predisposed them to developing cancer.  The technology has also been used to generate mice with genes knocked out. The first recorded knockout mouse was created by Mario R. CapecchiMartin Evans and Oliver Smithies in 1989. In 1992 oncomice with tumor suppressor genes knocked out were generated.  Creating Knockout rats is much harder and only became possible in 2003. 

After the discovery of microRNA in 1993,  RNA interference (RNAi) has been used to silence an organism's genes.  By modifying an organism to express microRNA targeted to its endogenous genes, researchers have been able to knockout or partially reduce gene function in a range of species. The ability to partially reduce gene function has allowed the study of genes that are lethal when completely knocked out. Other advantages of using RNAi include the availability of inducible and tissue specific knockout.  In 2007 microRNA targeted to insect and nematode genes was expressed in plants, leading to suppression when they fed on the transgenic plant, potentially creating a new way to control pests. Targeting endogenous microRNA expression has allowed further fine tuning of gene expression, supplementing the more traditional gene knock out approach.

Genetic engineering has been used to produce proteins derived from humans and other sources in organisms that normally cannot synthesize these proteins. Human insulin-synthesising bacteria were developed in 1979 and were first used as a treatment in 1982. In 1988 the first human antibodies were produced in plants.  In 2000 Vitamin A-enriched golden rice, was the first food with increased nutrient value

Paul Berg created the first recombinant DNA molecules in 1972

Further advances

As not all plant cells were susceptible to infection by A. tumefaciens other methods were developed, including electroporationmicro-injection  and particle bombardment with a gene gun (invented in 1987). In the 1980s techniques were developed to introduce isolated chloroplasts back into a plant cell that had its cell wall removed. With the introduction of the gene gun in 1987 it became possible to integrate foreign genes into a chloroplast.

Genetic transformation has become very efficient in some model organisms. In 2008 genetically modified seeds were produced in Arabidopsis thaliana by simply dipping the flowers in an Agrobacterium solution. The range of plants that can be transformed has increased as tissue culture techniques have been developed for different species.

The first transgenic livestock were produced in 1985, by micro-injecting foreign DNA into rabbit, sheep and pig eggs. The first animal to synthesise transgenic proteins in their milk were mice, engineered to produce human tissue plasminogen activator. This technology was applied to sheep, pigs, cows and other livestock. 

In 2010 scientists at the J. Craig Venter Institute announced that they had created the first synthetic bacterial genome. The researchers added the new genome to bacterial cells and selected for cells that contained the new genome. To do this the cells undergoes a process called resolution, where during bacterial cell division one new cell receives the original DNA genome of the bacteria, whilst the other receives the new synthetic genome. When this cell replicates it uses the synthetic genome as its template. The resulting bacterium the researchers developed, named Synthia, was the world's first synthetic life form.

In 2014 a bacteria was developed that replicated a plasmid containing an unnatural base pair. This required altering the bacterium so it could import the unnatural nucleotides and then efficiently replicate them. The plasmid retained the unnatural base pairs when it doubled an estimated 99.4% of the time. This is the first organism engineered to use an expanded genetic alphabet. 

In 2015 CRISPR and TALENs was used to modify plant genomes. Chinese labs used it to create a fungus-resistant wheat and boost rice yields, while a U.K. group used it to tweak a barley gene that could help produce drought-resistant varieties. When used to precisely remove material from DNA without adding genes from other species, the result is not subject the lengthy and expensive regulatory process associated with GMOs. While CRISPR may use foreign DNA to aid the editing process, the second generation of edited plants contain none of that DNA. Researchers celebrated the acceleration because it may allow them to "keep up" with rapidly evolving pathogens. The U.S. Department of Agriculture stated that some examples of gene-edited corn, potatoes and soybeans are not subject to existing regulations. As of 2016 other review bodies had yet to make statements.


In 1976 Genentech, the first genetic engineering company was founded by Herbert Boyer and Robert Swanson and a year later the company produced a human protein (somatostatin) in E.coli. Genentech announced the production of genetically engineered human insulin in 1978.  In 1980 the U.S. Supreme Court in the Diamond v. Chakrabarty case ruled that genetically altered life could be patented.  The insulin produced by bacteria, branded humulin, was approved for release by the Food and Drug Administration in 1982. 

In 1983 a biotech company, Advanced Genetic Sciences (AGS) applied for U.S. government authorization to perform field tests with the ice-minus strain of P. syringae to protect crops from frost, but environmental groups and protestors delayed the field tests for four years with legal challenges. In 1987 the ice-minus strain of P. syringae became the first genetically modified organism (GMO) to be released into the environment  when a strawberry field and a potato field in California were sprayed with it. Both test fields were attacked by activist groups the night before the tests occurred: "The world's first trial site attracted the world's first field trasher". 

The first genetically modified crop plant was produced in 1982, an antibiotic-resistant tobacco plant. The first field trials of genetically engineered plants occurred in France and the USA in 1986, tobacco plants were engineered to be resistant to herbicides. In 1987 Plant Genetic Systems, founded by Marc Van Montagu and Jeff Schell, was the first company to genetically engineer insect-resistant plants by incorporating genes that produced insecticidal proteins from Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) into tobacco.

Genetically modified microbial enzymes were the first application of genetically modified organisms in food production and were approved in 1988 by the US Food and Drug AdministrationIn the early 1990s, recombinant chymosin was approved for use in several countries.[83][84] Cheese had typically been made using the enzyme complex rennet that had been extracted from cows' stomach lining. Scientists modified bacteria to produce chymosin, which was also able to clot milk, resulting in cheese curdsThe People’s Republic of China was the first country to commercialize transgenic plants, introducing a virus-resistant tobacco in 1992.

In 1994 Calgene attained approval to commercially release the Flavr Savr tomato, a tomato engineered to have a longer shelf life. Also in 1994, the European Union approved tobacco engineered to be resistant to the herbicide bromoxynil, making it the first genetically engineered crop commercialized in Europe.  In 1995 Bt Potato was approved safe by the Environmental Protection Agency, after having been approved by the FDA, making it the first pesticide producing crop to be approved in the USA.  In 1996 a total of 35 approvals had been granted to commercially grow 8 transgenic crops and one flower crop (carnation), with 8 different traits in 6 countries plus the EU.

By 2010, 29 countries had planted commercialized biotech crops and a further 31 countries had granted regulatory approval for transgenic crops to be imported.  In 2013 Robert Fraley (Monsanto’s executive vice president and chief technology officer), Marc Van Montagu and Mary-Dell Chilton were awarded the World Food Prize for improving the "quality, quantity or availability" of food in the world.

The first genetically modified animal to be commercialised was the GloFish, a Zebra fish with a fluorescent gene added that allows it to glow in the dark under ultraviolet light. The first genetically modified animal to be approved for food use was AquAdvantage salmon in 2015.  The salmon were transformed with a growth hormone-regulating gene from a Pacific Chinook salmon and a promoter from an ocean pout enabling it to grow year-round instead of only during spring and summer.


Opposition and support for the use of genetic engineering has existed since the technology was developed.  After Arpad Pusztai went public with research he was conducting in 1998 the public opposition to genetically modified food increased.  Opposition continued following controversial and publicly debated papers published in 1999 and 2013 that claimed negative environmental and health impacts from genetically modified crops

First modern Britons had 'dark to black' skin, Cheddar Man DNA analysis reveals

The first modern Britons, who lived about 10,000 years ago, had “dark to black” skin, a groundbreaking DNA analysis of Britain’s oldest complete skeleton has revealed.

The fossil, known as Cheddar Man, was unearthed more than a century ago in Gough’s Cave in Somerset. Intense speculation has built up around Cheddar Man’s origins and appearance because he lived shortly after the first settlers crossed from continental Europe to Britain at the end of the last ice age. People of white British ancestry alive today are descendants of this population.

It was initially assumed that Cheddar Man had pale skin and fair hair, but his DNA paints a different picture, strongly suggesting he had blue eyes, a very dark brown to black complexion and dark curly hair.

The discovery shows that the genes for lighter skin became widespread in European populations far later than originally thought – and that skin colour was not always a proxy for geographic origin in the way it is often seen to be today.

Tom Booth, an archaeologist at the Natural History Museum who worked on the project, said: “It really shows up that these imaginary racial categories that we have are really very modern constructions, or very recent constructions, that really are not applicable to the past at all.”

Yoan Diekmann, a computational biologist at University College London and another member of the project’s team, agreed, saying the connection often drawn between Britishness and whiteness was “not an immutable truth. It has always changed and will change”.

The findings were revealed ahead of a Channel 4 documentary, which tracked the ancient DNA project at the Natural History Museum in London as well as creating a new forensic reconstruction of Cheddar Man’s head.

To perform the DNA analysis, museum scientists drilled a 2mm-diameter hole into the ancient skull to obtain a few milligrams of bone powder. From this, they were able to extract a full genome, which held clues about this ancient relative’s appearance and lifestyle.

The results pointed to a Middle Eastern origin for Cheddar Man, suggesting that his ancestors would have left Africa, moved into the Middle East and later headed west into Europe, before eventually crossing the ancient land bridge called Doggerland which connected Britain to continental Europe. Today, about 10% of white British ancestry can be linked to this ancient population.

The analysis also ruled out an ancestral link with individuals inhabiting Gough’s Cave 5,000 years earlier, who appear to have performed grisly cannibalistic rituals, including gnawing on human toes and fingers – possibly after boiling them – and drinking from polished skull cups.

Britain was periodically settled and then cleared during ice ages until the end of the last glacial period about 11,700 years ago, since when it has been continuously inhabited.

Until now, though, it hasn’t been clear whether each wave of migrants was seeded from the same population in mainland Europe; the latest results suggest this was not the case.

The team homed in on genes known to be linked to skin colour, hair colour and texture, and eye colour. For skin tone, there are a handful of genetic variants linked to reduced pigmentation, including some that are very widespread in European populations today. However, Cheddar Man had “ancestral” versions of all these genes, strongly suggesting he would have had “dark to black” skin tone, but combined with blue eyes.

Scientists believe that populations living in Europe became lighter-skinned over time because pale skin absorbs more sunlight, which is required to produce enough vitamin D. The latest findings suggest pale skin may have emerged later, possibly when the advent of farming meant people were obtaining less vitamin D though dietary sources like oily fish.

Cheddar Man would have lived a hunter-gatherer lifestyle, making sharp blades from flints for butchering animals, using antlers to whittle harpoons for spear fishing and carving bows and arrows.

850,000-year-old human footprints found in Norfolk | Science | The Guardian

Happisburgh prints believed to have been left by small group of adults and children are the oldest discovered outside Africa

The oldest human footprints found outside Africa, dated at between 850,000 and 950,000 years old, have been discovered on the storm-lashed beach at Happisburgh in Norfolk, one of the fastest-eroding stretches of the British coast. Within a fortnight, the sea tides that had exposed the prints last May destroyed them, leaving only casts and 3D images made through photogrammetry (stitching together hundreds of photographs) as evidence that a little group from a long-extinct early human species had passed that way.

They walked through a startlingly different landscape from today's, along the estuary of what may have been the original course of the Thames, through a river valley grazed by mammoths, hippos and rhinoceros. The pattern of the prints suggests at least five individuals heading southward, pausing and pottering about to gather plants or shellfish along the bank. They included children. The best preserved prints, clearly showing heel, arch and four toes – one toe may not have left a clear impression – is of a man with a foot equivalent to a modern size 8 shoe, suggesting a height of about 1.7 metres.

"This is an extraordinarily rare discovery," said Nick Ashton, a scientist at the British Museum, where the find was announced. "The Happisburgh site continues to rewrite our understanding of the early human occupation of Britain and indeed of Europe."

Although far older footprints have been found in Africa, the prints are more than twice the age of the previous oldest in Europe, from southern Italy and dated to around 345,000 years.

The Norfolk footprints are the first direct evidence of people at the most northerly edge of habitation in Europe, otherwise known only from fossilised animal bones and flint implements from a site nearby. The scientists worked flat out in the few hours between tides, sponging away seawater and brushing off sand, to record the prints. They were dated from the overlying sedimentary layers and glacial deposits, and the fossil remains of extinct animals – identified by Simon Parfitt, of the Natural History Museum, as including mammoth, an extinct type of horse and an early form of vole.

No human fossils have been found but the scientists from national museums and universities, who have been working at Happisburgh for a decade, believe they must be there and that there is a good chance more footprints will be exposed in a coastline crumbling on every tide – there has been 30 metres of erosion at the site since the find. Local people keep a near daily watch on the beach and phone the scientists if they spot anything interesting.

"It's a needle in a haystack," said Prof Chris Stringer of the Natural History Museum (NHM), a world authority on early humans. "There is the tiny chance of being in the right place at the right time, and recognising what you're seeing – if it's a bit of human rib going out on the tide, you might miss it completely."

The climate then was close to that of modern Scandinavia, with warm summers and very cold winters, when the group walked across the wet mud. With the river, plain and brackish pools there was abundant food including prey animals, shellfish and edible plants. However, very soon in geological terms, perhaps within 50,000 years, the weather got much worse and the humans retreated back across the landbridge to the continent and further south.

Stringer says confirmation will have to wait for fossil finds, but he believes the Norfolk hominids were related to people from Atapuerca in Spain described as Homo antecessor, pioneer man. He believes they became extinct in Europe, perhaps replaced by another early human species, Homo heidelbergensis, then by Neanderthals from around 400,000 years ago and finally by modern humans. Life was not always a stroll across a beach: the Spanish human fossils show the same cut marks as the animal bones, evidence of cannibalism.

The Happisburgh find features in an NHM exhibition opening next week, Britain: One Million Years of the Human Story.

Old footprints

• The Laetoli Trail left by two or possibly three human ancestors – probably Australopithecus afarensis – who walked across wet volcanic ash in Tanzania, has been dated at 3.6m years. Recent analysis suggests they walked with a gait like modern humans.

• Two sets of footprints found in 2009 near Ileret in Kenya, showing an arched foot, short toes, and a parallel big toe – described by scientists as "an essentially modern foot function" – were dated to 1.5m years.

• The previous oldest find from Europe, the three sets of tracks probably of Homo heidelbergensis, left in the volcanic ash of Roccamonfina in southern Italy, now hardened into rock and so known locally as "the devils' trails", are dated to between 325,000 and 385,000 years. A handprint suggests one of the walkers overbalanced on the rough terrain.

• The earliest footprints in Australia, at least 450 prints in 22 tracks of adults and children, left in hardened silty clay at Willandra Lakes in New South Wales – identified by scientists in 2003 though local people said they already knew of them – have been dated to some 20,000 years ago.

• The oldest footprints in North America were found by road builders in the Chihuanan desert in Mexico in 1961, and were recently dated at 10,550 years old. Scientists found more tracks in the area in 2006, which have been dated at 7,250 years.
