CRISPR Gene-Editing Mad Science Experiments Turn Sweet Hamsters Into Vicious Monsters
Recent gene editing experiments performed with clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats (CRISPR) technology has turned innocent hamsters into demonic rage-fueled monsters.
Georgia State University (GSU) scientists experimented on hamsters with the hypothesis that removing the hormone vasopressin and its receptor, Avpr1a, from the critters would facilitate cooperation and harmony among the hamsters. It turned out they were dead wrong.
“We were really surprised at the results,” H. Elliot Albers, a lead researcher for the study, said to Metro.
“We anticipated that if we eliminated vasopressin activity, we would reduce both aggression and social communication,” Albers continued, adding that his mad science made hamsters show “high levels of aggression towards other same-sex individuals” regardless of sex or genotype.
The researchers chose Syrian hamsters for these studies because their social structure tends to mimic humans. This should make the findings and ramifications for this sort of technology being used and abused on men and women highly alarming.
“We don’t understand this system as well as we thought we did,” Albers stated.
Big League Politics has reported on how humans are already beginning to experiment with gene therapy as technology continues to undermine God’s natural design with terrifying results:
“In September 1999, 18-year old Jesse Gelsinger died during a gene therapy trial study at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. Gelsinger suffered from a genetic defect that prevents proper metabolism of ammonia and received doses of a virus carrying a “corrective gene” during the trial study.
Fast forward to 2018—James Wilson, the founder and director of Penn’s Institute for Human Gene Therapy and researcher involved in the 1999 trial study, sounded a dire warning about the dangers of gene therapy.
Noting that monkeys and pigs given high doses of gene therapy died or suffered behavioral changes during experiments, Wilson stated, “What is remarkable is we have not seen it before,” adding, “We were surprised but shouldn’t have been. If you push the dose of anything high enough, you are going to see toxicity.”
“It would be very naïve for our community to assume we won’t have toxic effects,” Wilson continued. “People get comfortable, saying, ‘Hey, let’s do it—there is nothing lose.’ Well, it’s out there waiting. But when it’s going to happen, why it’s going to happen—nobody knows.“
Moreover, some are experimenting with gene therapy on an individual basis.
Likewise, in October 2017, Josiah Zayner, CEO of biohacking startup “The Odin,” injected himself utilizing the gene-editing technology, CRISPR, in an effort to enhance his muscles. Last year however, after watching a biotechnology CEO inject himself with an untested herpes treatment, Zayner softened his approach towards experimenting with the untested treatments.
“Honestly, I kind of blame myself,” Zayner told The Atlantic, adding, “There’s no doubt in my mind that somebody is going to end up hurt eventually.”’
The sad reality is Pandora’s box has already been ripped open with regards to gene-editing technology. There is nothing stopping amoral scientists from playing God and causing atrocities on a scale that few can even imagine. A hellish dystopia is upon us, and there is no easy way out.
