If you do not believe us now, you will believe by the end of this article.
The Canadian company Nexia has produced goats that are genetically modified to be part spider.
The genetic modification causes these spider goats to produce spider silk protein in their milk that is collected, purified and spun into super strong fibers.
These fibers are apparently more durable than Kevlar, more stretchable than nylon, and stronger than steel.
This company sees nothing wrong with messing with nature to harvest a substance that has very valuable industrial and military applications.
But we don't expect you all to take our word for it. The Telegraph, one of the leading newspapers in the U.K., featured this major article about spider goats, and according to them this has been going on for quite some time.
The funny thing is that these scientists are not even trying to hide it anymore. The following YouTube video is of a television report where you can see these "spider goats" and where scientists describe exactly how they create these spider goats and what they are doing with them:
If all of this was not frightening enough, now amateurs are trying genetic engineering at home.
The "science" of genetic engineering has become so advanced that now people can create new lifeforms in their own kitchens and living rooms.
If governments around the world had any sense, they would outlaw this type of activity immediately.
Who knows what kind of plagues or environmental devastation one of these "amateur bio engineers" could cause by creating a new lifeform?
The truth is that whether it is professionals or amateurs, science has crossed a threshold that should not have been crossed.
Once the genie is out of the bottle it can never be put back. The dangers from all of this bioengineering will only be known as time moves forward, but we have the feeling that everyone is very much going to wish that humanity had never gone down this road.
