‘Mad Science’ and Politics of Rule: Turning Men Into Animals? Pt 3

frankensteins-cat.        A scene ‘The Borne Legacy’ has super-secret bureaucrat Col. Erik Byer, played by Edward Norton, tell the super-man-hero Aaron Cross, played by Jeremy Renner, that when scientific manipulations control selected people, controllers act as agents without morals in order to protect a ‘morally righteous’ world.

As such, controllers unleash some immoral corners of post-modern science. In ‘New Vaccine Will Control Human Behavior,’ Blanche Levine reveals a poisonous vaccine program designed to inoculate children from ever smoking:

“Their newest ‘invention’ is to inject potential smokers, even children, with genetically engineered viruses designed to infect the liver and force it to make antibiotics against nicotine. In other words, doctors will soon have the power to alter human behavior––on a genetic level.”

Dr. Levine asks:  “Does this sound ethical to inoculate children with an artificial anti-nicotine antibody called NIC9D9? Think about it––if allowed––a few major pharmaceutical corporations would (legally) be allowed to permanently damage the genetic integrity of the human race. We’ve got to stop this.”

Scripps Research Institute has already patented NIC9D9, the so-called ‘anti-smoking’ virus.”  Thus, Levine writes: “So, in the near future, people will be walking around with patented antibodies from plants owned by corporations like Monsanto. It’s already happening when uneducated consumers eat genetically modified salmon and pigs. What is our world coming to?”

Such insidious ‘science’ robs human beings of one trait that separates them from domestic animals––free will.”  In his the_wolfman_wallpaperstudy, ‘Just Say No to Mind Controlling Parasites,’ George Dvorsky comes to the same conclusion:  i.e. mind controlling viruses (as in ‘The Bourne Legacy’) can alter behaviors of their hosts.  He writes:

“Think humans are immune to mind controlling parasites? Think again. It is suspected that Toxoplasma gondii, a parasite that is often contracted by humans from their cats, affects human psychology.  Dvorsky cites Jaroslav Flegr, professor of parasitology at Charles University in Prague.  Flegr found that people infected with Toxoplasma show self-blame and insecurity.  Infected women are more outgoing and warmhearted, while the men are more jealous and suspicious.

In these spheres where people operate without morals for the ‘good of mankind,’ Dvorsky points to religious cults specializing in mind control, in the same ways government ‘scientists’ use such control techniques on victims in the first three Bourne movies and in this last one.  Through such execution and plenty of extremely strong chemical contrivances, men are turned into killing animals.

Perhaps writers of anti-Christian fiction read from the book King Solomon wrote in his times of depression:  “I said in mine heart concerning the estate of the sons of men, that God might manifest them, and that they might see that they themselves are beasts (Ecclesiastes 3: 18).” Even thousands of years ago, that king understood that men can be turned into animals!

Can ‘Mad Science:’ Turn Machine Into Man? Part 2

robots01        Let those who follow what is dubbed science fiction understand that in today’s world, much more ‘science’ is involved and much less ‘fiction.’  In other words, the work of ‘Mad Science’ is poised to take over the earth with robots that can feel, think, form attachments with people, and have specific ‘beliefs.’

Tim Lohman writes in ZDNet that AI scientists now work on systems designed to give robots “their own sets of beliefs and life goals,” enabling them to make “intelligent and rational decisions . . . without human intervention.

Dr John Thangarajah told ZDNet:  “Intelligent agent technology is a particular way of developing software . . . in a variety of application[s], . . . designed and structured in terms of ‘mental attitudes’—variables such as beliefs, goals, intentions, and commitments—rather than “object-oriented” methods.”

Three years ago, phys.org wrote in ‘Robots That Develop Emotions in Interaction with Humans’ that Dr. Lola Canamero from the University of Hertfordshire, working with universities and robotic companies across Europe, had created robots capable of forming attachments and expression emotion:

“The robots have been created through modeling the early attachment process that human and chimpanzee infants undergo with their caregivers when they develop a preference for a primary caregiver.  As if a child chooses its parent!

“The robots are capable of expressing anger, fear, sadness, happiness, excitement and pride and will demonstrate ROBOTICAvery visible distress if the caregiver fails to provide them comfort when confronted by a stressful situation that they cannot cope with or to interact with them when they need it.”

However, as hard as ‘mad men’ work to evolve this ‘new science,’ they have assigned to themselves an impossible task.  Machines do not and cannot have ‘souls.’  Only God can create man’s spirit and soul to function intricately with the body: “And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul (Genesis 2: 7).”

The soul contains man’s mind, will and emotions.  Moreover, every human being fashioned through ‘normal’ reproductive methods also has a spirit, which when awakened contains spiritual capacities far beyond emotional spheres.

As much as it’s adherents may desire it, ‘science,’ has no capacity to form a human being into a living soul.  Moreover, such ‘scientists’ cannot make robots capable of reproducing themselves through male-female exchanges. They contain neither sperm nor mothering womb.  Attempts to make robots human with a few programmed emotions fall far short of man’s capacity to love, hate and forgive.

By the way, those relishing to make robots behave as chimpanzees cannot even re-create those animals.  The Infinite God’s reproductive miracles are far beyond human reach.  Most particularly, ‘mad scientists’ cannot imbue God-like capacities to love, for as Bible historical books insist, “God is Love (1 John 4:8),” and man’s task is to love as God loves.  That is His call and it is not science!

New ‘Mad Science:’ Turning Man Into Machine or Machine Into Man!

posted by Dr. Jael Ever @ 23:10 PM

BourneLegacy_INT_ENG_DVD_RET_Sleeve.indd        Using new age robotic speculation, movie makers continue chasing ‘scientific’ scenarios of ‘mad men,’ who ever seek new ways to manipulate human behavior, or create new ‘human-like’ machines. For both ‘control’ is the problem.

Based on Robert Ludlum’s trilogy/movie series, ‘The Bourne Conspiracy,’ the more detailed updated version of government ‘control’ secrets, ‘The Bourne Legacy,‘ gets to the heart of ‘turning man into machine’ issues.

Tony Gilroy, a writer on the first three Bourne films and writer-director of this fourth one, did extensive intelligence research, ending with a plot about a super-human hero struggling to get out from under massive government ‘controls.’

As he is kept alive by various viruses designed to greatly enhance his physical and mental capabilities, the hero, Aaron Cross, could be considered transhuman.  Wikipedia defines transhumanism as:

“. . . an international cultural and intellectual movement with an eventual goal of fundamentally transforming the human condition by developing and making widely available technologies to greatly enhance human intellectual, physical, and psychological capacities.” Hence: making a few very super men!

Secret government agencies higher than even the CIA strive to retain dominance over Cross, but their various genomic schemes backfire as he outsmarts all their efforts to kill him––just as they murdered most operatives, doctors, researchers, and over-enhanced warriors from the original films except Bourne.

However, in the case of both men, what controllers hadn’t counted on was the love and grace of a woman.  For Borne’s never-ending sorrow his love was killed by an assassin aiming for him.  But for Cross it was Dr. Marta Shearing, who had worked for the spy agency, but ended freeing Cross from controlling viruses.

“There are different ways to introduce chromosomal changes to affect genomics. You can hijack a virus, put in what 2-Feature-Pic18you want and use that as the delivery system. I got really interested in this idea of genomic alteration, where you go in on a chromosomal level” Gilroy told Hugh Hart, a wired.com interviewer.

The movie maker cites for example, the fact that it is getting much harder for Olympic and other sports officials to discern gene doping:  “There’s a legitimate fear in the sports world that gene doping is going to be the next turn of the wheel.”
Christian fiction novels
Major problems with films ‘imagining’ Science Fiction, is that too often in post-modern society, those ‘fictions’ become realities.  Films such as ‘Bourne Legacy’ depict what Christian fiction novels identify as the mystery of iniquity.

Apostle Paul writes praying Christians can thwart nefarious advances such as transhumanism: “For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way (2 Thessalonians 2:7).”

Muslim Brotherhood: Egypt Bred, Jailed or Free, World-Wide Revolt!

posted by Dr. Jael Ever @ 23:12 PM
August 20, 2013

rise-of-muslim-brotherhood       Before the internet, governments and journalists could assert history as only ‘a few years ago,’ but now research is possible.  Our sister site, earthend-newbeginning.com writes about mysterious Egyptians, most particularly members of the Muslim Brotherhood, kidnapping, even murdering, Christian pastors and burning churches. Now, it is critical that researchers ask more relevant questions:

Why was the Muslim Brotherhood freed when one of it’s murderous wing assassinated Egyptian President Anwar Sadat in 1981, when Sadat had freed them from prison and re-legalized their existence in 1974?  Oh, that’s right, because Sadat made peace with Israel in 1978.

According to bibliotecapleydes.net, the Muslim Brotherhood had murdered another Egyptian leader:  “On December 28, 1948, a member of the Muslim Brotherhood assassinated Egyptian Prime Minister Mahmud Fahmi Nokrashi.”

Sadat’s successor Hosni Mubarak harassed and imprisoned the Brotherhood until he was over-thrown as part of the so-called ‘Arab Spring’ in 2011.  Since then the Brotherhood has gained ever more political status, but few western politicians and journalists question their ultimate aims.

In his work, ‘A Mosque In Munich,’ Ian Johnson establishes the Muslim Brotherhood:  “Society of Muslim Brothers (or Brethren) was founded in 1928 by Hasan al-Banna, a schoolteacher from a small town in the Nile Delta.  At the time, Egypt was still under British colonial rule.

“. . . Not limited by race or nationality, the Brotherhood would spread from North Africa to Southeast Asia . . . by the Islam-in-Egypt 1930s, the Brotherhood went so far as to accept money from Nazi agents. . . [it] focused on two national causes:  One was anti-colonialism. . . Another was opposition to Jewish immigration to Israel.”

Over the years as the Brotherhood grew in Egypt and some 70 nations around the world.  Various websites associate the Brotherhood with al Qaeda, Hamas, Chechen rebels in Russia, etc.  bibliotecapleydes.net, also insists the Muslim Brotherhood was and is against the Assad family as rulers of Syria because they are Alawite Muslims, and not authentic to the Muslem religion.

After an attempt at Assad’s life, “the Syrian parliament declare[d] membership with the Muslim Brotherhood a capital offense and sent his army to root out its members.”  Thus it is assumed they are part of the uprising in Syria.

Other questions: if this information is available on the internet, then who is fooling whom?  Why are western politicians and journalists so awash with remorse at Egyptian military’s crackdown on The Brotherhood?  How did a group with such a background get to the leadership of Egypt in the first place?  Is anyone really surprised that they kill Christians and work to destroy Egypt (and Israel)?

Bible inspired writing labels deception as a trap:  “Let not him that is deceived trust in vanity: for vanity shall be his recompense (Job 15: 31).” Is this all today’s politicians and journalists have to offer the public––empty truthless words?

Doomsday Realities: Wars, Bombs, Robots––Warnings of the Beast

posted by Dr. Jael Ever @ 1:35 AM
August 17, 2013

DOOMSDAY2        At the end of 2012, because of the Mayan prophecies and other world-wide notices, several prognosticators presented theories on what people will experience on Dooms Day.  Unfortunately all of those possibilities seem only too possible.

For instance, SimplyHike.co.uk summarizes theories about Dooms Day.  They include credible scenarios that people face in this post-modern, post-industrial age, i.e.:  Financial Collapse, EMP (Electromagnetic pulse) Attack, World War III, Disease Pandemics, Natural Disasters, Meteor Strike, Food Supply Disruption, Zombies, and Nuclear Fallout.

Finance scholars write daily that collapse is possible considering economic weaknesses in both Europe and China.  An EMP Attack means complete disruption of all electrical power, which would mean the end of  developed civilization.

This blog, as well as its sister earthend-newbeginning.com, warns constantly about the nearing of World War III, viewing especially factors in Europe, the Middle East and China. Our sister blog especially zeros in on coming pandemics that may take out millions of people at one time.

Again, our sister blog provides constant information on natural disasters and possible disruptions of food supplies, as well as spiraling food costs that especially affect the poor.  Scientists, along with military and space personnel work to develop defenses against meteor strikes.  It seems by ‘zombies,’ Simply Hike refers to alien beings.  And of course Japan provides ample lessons about nuclear fallout.

AFP News and Terra Daily.com quotes the International Energy Agency at the end of 2011 that the ‘World Has Five Years to Avoid Severe Warming.’ Thus by 2017, IEA says catastrophic climate change will be irreversible.

Number five in Andrew Handley’s list, ‘10 Doomsday Predictions Beyond 2012,’ adds ‘The Robopocalypse’:  “Bill Joy, 4killer robot VoR 2who co-founded Sun Microsystems writes . . . technology is evolving so fast that it will eventually overtake human evolution and bring about the extinction of our society. Specifically, he believed that in about 30 years robotics would reach an intelligence level that would be sufficient to allow it to operate without us, rendering humans obsolete.”

What’s the point of these rehearsals you ask?  Our Planet Earth, this world’s complex systems, and various mad men, who want to destroy everything on the planet, are not slowing down. While doing everything possible to avoid such events, each person must get ready for time’s consequences: eternity.

And that preparation is through God’s Son, Jesus Christ.  It may sound altogether too simplistic for this complex age, but God’s Word has been True from the beginning of time:  “ . . . from eternity to eternity Thou Art God!”

Mark 1: 3 reads in historical Bible Books:  “ . . . prepare ye the way of The LORD, make His paths straight.”  In other words, make it easy:  Confess your sins before Him.  Ask for forgiveness.  Then ask Him to come into your heart and life!

Nazis, neo-Nazis and Islamo-Fascists: Little Need for Women

posted by Dr. Jael Ever @ 7:00 AM
August 12, 2013

islam-carteles-londresAnother similarity confirming connections between Nazis, neo-Nazis and radical Islamists is the near-absence of women among their fighting ranks.  In both past and present societies among those groups women stand for breeding purposes.

‘History on the net’ says Nazi’s ideals for women included not wearing: trousers, makeup, or high-heeled shoes. Also women were not to dye or perm their hair, or go on slimming diets. And most of all they were not to work for a living.

Instead women were paid to have children, and their job as mothers were to indoctrinate children about Nazism.  According to Koonz, German women “were the ones who incrementally brought Nazism home . . . They indoctrinated their children in anti-Semitism. They were the ones who would tell their children to stop playing with the Jewish children down the block.”

As for fascism in Italy, writing for the ‘Journal’ in 1922, Maurice de Valeffe cites Mussolini:  “During the serious economic crisis beginning in 1930, Mussolini ordered that women should leave their places of work. Because he saw women as “thieves who reach out to steal men’s bread, and responsible for men’s unproductiveness.” Valeffe also says women’s workplace opportunities were few.

Of course, even today’s Islamic world is much harsher on women, but the principle is the same.  In “Islamo-fascism’s Hatred of Women,” a blogger writes: “Women’s rights are compromised by a section in the Koran, sura 4:34, that has been interpreted to say that men have ‘pre-eminence’ over women or that they are ‘overseers’ of women. . . . hundreds of Muslim women die in ‘honor killings’.”

In “The Islamist War on Muslim Women, Jeff Jacoby of the Boston Globe adds:  “More than 25 such “honor killings” have been confirmed in Britain’s Muslim community in recent years. Many more are suspected.

“ . . . in Basra, Iraq, of women who wear Western-style clothing. Iraqi police say that more than 40 women have been killed [in 2007] . . . In San Francisco, a young Muslim woman was shot dead after she uncovered her hair and put on makeup in order to be a maid of honor at a friend’s wedding.”

As for Muslim mothers’ indoctrinating their sons, the best example for U.S. readers is the Boston Marathon mother-of-the-Boston-Marathon-bombersbombing.  The Daily Mail and Associated Press wrote shortly after the bombings: “The mother of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects was put on the CIA terrorist watch list 18 months before the tragedy.”

Speaking of the older bomber, Rep. Michael McCaul, the chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, said  “The mother in my judgment has a role in his radicalization process in terms of her influence over him (and) fundamental views of Islam.  Zubeidat Tsarnaev (the mother) is now considered a ‘person of interest’ in the federal investigation into the attack.”

In Islamo-fascists-Nazi worlds, all women are good for is to rape, kill, or have children and raise them to be killers. Well does the prophet who revealed the fourth horseman identify a final evil woman of death as “And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH (Revelation 17: 5).

The Ball Is In Europe’s Court: Either Return or Be Destroyed

posted by Dr. Jael Ever @ 23:12 PM
August 8, 2013

As the world tumbles ever more swiftly towards World War III, nations redefine themselves with changing cultures, populations and racial identities. Europeans use usual control tactics of prisons, ghettoes and police to keep non-native ethnic groups––usually Muslims––at bay, but efforts are weak or failing.

Stop-Islamication-Europe        For many European countries growing Muslim populations is traced back to histories as colonialists, which in post-colonial worlds, gave Muslims immigrant or even citizenship, status.  For others, i.e. Germany, Muslims were needed workers.
At present birth rates, Muslim populations will outnumber Europeans by 2050.

For example in ‘Premier League: How Muslims Are Changing English Football Culture,’ Rob Cowling of BBC writes: “When the Premier League started in 1992, it included just one footballer known to be Muslim, Tottenham’s Spanish midfielder Nayim. England’s top division now features 40 Muslim players and they are having a significant effect on the culture of the game.”

He points out that young men from remote African villages or tough parts of Paris are now global stars.  Yet: “They may have found wealth and fame playing for English clubs, but many still hold on to . . . their cultural identity, something that guides them. . . when the going gets tough––their Islamic faith.”

While some Muslim players fast 18 hours a day during Ramadan, yet they must be strong enough for 90 minutes of Muslims-europe-prayersplay time.  Celebrations no longer include champagne as Muslims don’t drink alcohol.  Cowling claims that now kids playing football in Newcastle fall on their knees as if to pray after scoring a goal.

Soeren Kern of The Jewish Press says the Muslim prison population in Britain is up 200%,  surpassed the 11,000 mark for the first time.” The fear is these prisons will become hotbeds for Islamic radicalization. Researchers from the Cambridge Criminology Institute say prisoners suffer extreme pressure to convert.

Moreover, Adrian Michaels of telegraph.co.uk has argued for years: ‘Muslim Europe: the Demographic Time Bomb Transforming Our Continent,’ “Europe’s low white birth rate, coupled with faster multiplying migrants, will change fundamentally what we take to mean by European culture and society.”

That writer uses Spain for an example: “Only 3.2 per cent of Spain’s population was foreign-born in 1998. In 2007 it was 13.4 per cent. Europe’s Muslim population has more than doubled in the past 30 years . . .”

Major questions are about the strength or weakness of European churches.  In its turn away from Christian faiths, these nations have left themselves open to such other religious attacks, especially leaving younger generations vulnerable.

Only the strength of Almighty God through His Son and His Holy Spirit can withstand such spiritual forces.  As God argues in historical books of the Old Testament: “. . . Return unto Me, and I will return unto you, saith The LORD of Hosts (Malachi 3: 7).” The ball is in Europe’s court, and its time is running out!

Are You There? Matthias Stormberger––Predicted Today’s Truths Pt 2

posted by Dr. Jael Ever @ 23:12 PM
August 7, 2013

Stormberger        Stormberger did not experience his visions simultaneously.  As he grew older, he witnessed very accurate visions of the end of earth. When a young man hundreds of years ago, he had amazing visions of  railroads, airplanes and other facets of modern life. But when his visions turned to world wars, they grew darker.

In addition to accurately stating the beginning of World War I, Stormberger foresaw The Great Depression following that great war:  “ . . . immediately after this terrible war will come a time where the money will have no value.

“200 Guilders will not enough to buy a loaf of bread; there will the famine and men will the quest for survive. Money will be made of iron, and gold shall become so valuable that for a few gold coins a small farm can be bought.”

Most important for this present generation are his visions of World War III: “And after the end of the Second Great War, a third universal conflagration will come, so that it will determine everything. There will be weapons totally new.

“In one day, more men will die than in all the previous wars. The battles will be accomplished with artificial weapons. The third war will be the end of many nations. . . . “You, my children, won’t experience the largest mischief, you, my grandchildren, won’t also experience it, but the third stock.”

The prophet continues with hair-raising descriptions that sound even like what informed world sees today:  “Gigantic catastrophes will happen. With the open eyes, the nations of the planet will go through these catastrophes. They won’t know what is happening, and those that know and tell, will be silenced.

“Over night it will take place––in a pub in Zwiesel (a German city known for its glass) many people will be together, and outside the soldiers will ride over the bridge. . . . The people become ill, and nobody can help them . . .”

His prophetic visions astound more than any horror films today, culminating: “However it will continue, and what follows then, is the end of the world. Sky and earth burn, because it is the time when everything comes to an end.”

Finally he adds:  “Everything will be different from before, and in many places the Earth will be a great cemetery. The viajes_weber_verhaengnisthird war will be the end of many nations.  When the people fall off the bank like the flies off the wall, the last time begins. It will be horrible.”

In other words, Stormberger sees the end of earth, and even time, as people know them today.  Yet he sees a better beginning:  “After these events it will be a miracle, if one still sees two or three rulers going together, after these events the clarity will be anew, and those who survived, will face a good time for hope.”

His final vision agrees with God’s final promise in Christian non-fiction prophecy books: “And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away . . . (Revelation 21: 1).”

Anyone Listening? Matthias Stormberger––Predicted Today’s Truths

posted by Dr. Jael Ever @ 23:22 PM
August 5, 2013

Most Christians believe that only the prophets writing within God’s Holy Bible of Christian non-fiction prophecy books are fully inspired and sanctioned by His Holy Spirit.  Yet the world has seen some amazing prophets come and go.

Of course some of these professing prophetic seers are better known than others:  Michel de Nostradamus, Leonardo daVinci, Edgar Cayce, etc.  But generally these men had backgrounds of formal education.

stormbergerMatthiasHowever, Matthias Stormberger, a rather poor under-educated farmer living in 18th century Bavaria, has an unblemished record of prophecies that have unfolded as ‘truth’ for the last 300 years.

Because he rightly predicted that the fall of Hitler, the Nazis burned most of Stromberger’s prophecies.  However, fragments remain.  In his visions, this seer ‘saw’ both World Wars I & II, even predicting the dates between the two:

“Two or three decades after the first war it will come one a Second War still larger. Almost all the nations of the world will be involved. Millions of men will die, without being soldiers. The fire will fall from the sky and many great cities will be destroyed. And after the end of the Second Great War, a third universal conflagration will come, so that it will determine everything.”

About World War III he adds:  “There will be weapons totally new. In one day, more men will die than in all the previous wars. The battles will be accomplished with artificial weapons. Gigantic catastrophes will happen.

“With the open eyes, the nations of the planet will go through these catastrophes. They won’t know what is happening, and those that know and tell, will be silenced. Everything will be different from before, and in many places the Earth will be a great cemetery. The third war will be the end of many nations”.

Moreover, the spiritually astute prophet also envisioned decline of the Roman Catholic Church:  “”The catholic faith will almost completely disappear, the religiousness will be quite badly respected, they will not earn any respect due to their way of living, there won’t be many good Christians among the people, . . .

“. . . the Commandments of God are no longer respected by the aristocracy as well as by the smallest worker, one will not think the greatest unfairness to be a sin. When the faith disappears also the love of the next one will completely lose itself, one will not estimate the justice, often the poor one will not be given right and he will be less respected than a dog. After this a mischief will arise that has to be regretted, there will be no order among the people.”

As Gregg Braden argues in ‘The Isaiah Effect,’ would to God that more Christians gave God the spiritual time needed to The-Isaiah-Effectlikewise worn people today about what is to come.  As promised in the Books of Joel (2: 28) and Acts:

“And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams (2: 17).”

Real Problems in Egypt: Near Famine Not Stopping Stubborn Militancy

posted by Dr. Jael Ever @ 18:17 PM
August 2, 2013

egypt-massacre-2    Perhaps pro-Morsi supporters threatening chaos in Egypt’s streets do not realize how close the nation came to starvation.  An ex-Mursi aide now admits that through bad political management the Muslim Brotherhood leader was down to two months’ supply of wheat, and Mursi had cancelled all other wheat shipments.

Maggie Fick and Ehab Farouk write in ‘Halting Egypt’s Wheat Imports was Mursi’s Biggest Mistake’ that deposed Egyptian President Mohamed Mursi erred when stopping wheat imports.

Mohamed Abu Shadi, Egypt’s new minister of supplies, says that Mursi’s inexperienced food minister made “incorrect calculations . . . based on guesses, not on facts.” Abu Shadi concludes these errors brought Mursi’s government down.

Those wrong calculations caused Mursi to cut the nation’s wheat imports by 10 percent last April.  Egypt is the world’s biggest wheat importer buying some 10 million tons a year.  But, according to the April 3rd Daily Star:

“. . . two years of political turmoil and economic crisis have eroded hard currency reserves at a rate of about $1 billion a month, raising questions about Egypt’s ability to purchase in open tenders.”

Yet a month later, Daily News Egypt wrote that President Mohamed Mursi planned to achieve self sufficiency in wheat production within four years. Experts said this was impossible.  One explained:  “the land allocated for agriculture is limited, so increasing production will be limited as well.”

By mid-July, ousted former Minister of Supplies Bassem Ouda finally admitted only a two month supply of wheat was left in Egypt’s coffers. 84 million people in Egypt depend on imported bread to live.  Along with Ouda’s confession, Reuters quotes U.N. Food officials that Egypt faces food security concerns.

Now, rather than admit Mursi’a failed leadership, his followers would rather fill their nation’s streets with blood: “We r-EGYPT-large570will protect our President Mursi with our necks. We are all willing to sacrifice our necks and souls for him,” Brotherhood General Guide Mohammed Badie told hundreds of thousands of demonstrators at Cairo’s Rabaa Mosque recently.  So what they want is war and starvation?

Like politicians in the U.S. often find, to campaign for high office is one thing, but to govern a nation is another. Officials should be appointed to positions ––such as food and agriculture––based on their expertise, not political allegiances.

Hopefully, the interim military government can hold them in check.  If not, Egypt will not have bread or peace. Such foolishness is what the forces of evil want.  As Christian non-fiction prophecy books forecast, Satan’s rider cries:

“And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand. And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine (Revelation 6:5 – 5).” Famine indeed!
