The New Barbarism: embryonic stem cell lines

This is my response to the article published January 28, 2021, by Fr. Matthew Schneider, titled “If Any Drug Tested on HEK-293 Is Immoral, Goodbye Modern Medicine”. Obviously from a catholic perspective. His general thesis is captured in what he wrote:

Personally I take exception with the affirmation that vaccines help you and others, but for this discussion I’ll leave it at that.

The author lists many drugs which he says have been tested using the HEK-293 embryonic cell line, which is the one he focused. I have not checked the validity of his claims, but if true, I say no medication should be used by a true believer in the Lord if it was developed with or tested on embryonic cells. Some investigation might be needed to find ethical alternatives. There are many in the natural (alternative) medical world. For example, I no longer use any pain medications at all. Not even paracetamol. I have found good alternatives that are non-toxic chemicals.

No cooperation with evil

This seems to be a discussion of whether it amounts to remote or proximate cooperation with evil. The author argues that because the abortion on which the cell lines were established occurred a long time ago thus the cooperation with evil is remote. It’s like saying that the level of sin has now been diluted down to a miniscule level so you are ok to take advantage of what comes of it. It is no longer sinful.

I remember some years ago when I read about Lipton testing their tea with fetal cells. From that moment on I chose never to drinking that brand again. But many foods, vaccines and other products have been tested with or developed with human fetal cells. See the list here. Don’t consume any processed foods and you’ll avoid those companies’ products.

Where I now stand

Someone asked me about my current relationship with Creation Ministries International (CMI) because he no longer saw any new articles written by me appearing on their platform (creation.com).

I explained that I no longer contribute articles or work with them. This situation came about through the organisation’s stance on fetal cells used in vaccines.

Dr John Gideon Hartnett 11 March 2021

For a long time I felt that the leadership had an unacceptable element of biased editorial control. CMI says that they promote a biblical creation (not evolution) message and provide the opportunity for peer-review science publications that are free of the secular bias against such writings. But they have adopted certain corporate positions, which seems to fly in the face of free debate even within the biblical creation discussion space.

Abortion is murder

Here I highlight aspects of the murderous abortion industry in the following two short videos. They expose the total lack of morals in the so-called modern society. In my view, God cannot make the fires of Hell hot enough for those involved.

Abortion is murder. How come it is called a termination and then they deny that the product of that abortion was a human being? Is it because people’s hearts have become calloused and harden so that they cannot feel anymore?

Stanley Plotkin Under Oath: Fetal Tissue in Vaccines, Studies on Orphans and Children

11 January 2018: Attorney Aaron Siri destroys the world’s top vaccinologist, Dr. Stanley Plotkin, in a deposition in which, Dr. Plotkin describes how he and his colleagues harvested organs, including pituitary glands, hearts, eyes, kidneys, tongues, etc. from hundreds of fully formed aborted fetuses (at least 3 months old) for use in making their vaccines.

A War of Good v Evil

How can you tell we are in a war of good verses evil? Answer: just look at what is being censored. Just look at the injustice of silencing those who tell the truth.

Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that count darkness as light, and light as darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

Isaiah 5:20

It is the work of Satan to call black white and white black, to call evil good and good evil. This is what the scriptures warn of when people justify themselves by their own standards. When they impose unrighteous standards in other. A man is never a woman. There are only two genders/sexes and not 57 or more. Basic science tells us that. The Bible tells us that. We are made in the image of God.

But the Lord says (Isaiah 5:24) the evil ones who do this shall perish “because they have cast away the law of the Lord of hosts, and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel“.

Horrors of the Abortion Industry

Abortion, in my opinion, is the worse crime on earth today. I am surprised how little protest against the horrors of abortion there is, especially amongst Christians. With more than 100,000 abortions each year in Australia and millions in the US where is the outrage? Instead, it is called women’s health. Well, that is far from anything to do with health.

One in three women will kill their own baby in Australia. Now in Australia most states either have or are pushing for full term abortion. That is the right to murder the baby in the womb at nine months of gestation when it is ready to be born. Don’t be misled by the language used to cover this crime.

The method they can use, to prevent the baby taking a breathe of air, is to deliver the baby breach, so that the head is delivered last. Then they take a sharp instrument and sever the baby’s spine killing it.

But sometimes babies survive this and are born alive. So the doctors/nurses leave it to die alone on some cold metal tray, not rending any assistance to keep the child alive.

What has become of humanity?

The following is an article from 2019 that the lamestream media and Snopes tried to claim was mostly false. But it is true alright.

The Big Picture: On the Origins of Life, Meaning and the Universe Itself? Part 1

Part 1 of my review of the book: “The Big Picture: On the Origins of Life, Meaning and the Universe Itself,” by Sean M. Carroll a theoretical physicist at the California Institute of Technology, and an outspoken atheist (not to be confused with Sean B. Carroll, an evolutionary biologist). The book was the winner of the 2013 Royal Society Winton Prize for Science Books.

Front cover of book. Published by Oneworld Publications, London, 2016, 470 pages.

On the inside book cover these questions are written:

Where are we? Who are we? Do our beliefs, hopes and dreams mean anything out there in the void? Can human purpose and meaning ever fit into a scientific worldview?

Carroll’s message in this book is that there is no ultimate purpose, we are only the product of matter and material forces, there is no meaning to life, there is no afterlife and meaning and purpose do not fit into any scientific worldview. But the author tries to dress it up saying that it’s what you put into your life that counts. Beauty is found in the observer. But he cannot escape his own bondage because his worldview ultimately does not allow for intrinsic meaning or purpose. He is just dead in the end.

There is nothing new in this book but a lot of atheistic philosophy stemming from Enlightenment philosopher David Hume. The author uses circular reasoning and begging the question. By assuming there is no Creator because He is not needed in the universe, to cause it or operate within it, and by assuming everything in the past evolution of the universe and life in it is explained by man’s current knowledge (Darwinian evolution by mutation and natural selection) then everything can be explained how it came to be. The Universe needs no reason to exist. It simply is. Life needs no reason, it simply is. There was nothing before time began in the big bang so no question can be asked what was before? There is no First Cause because either the universe came into the existence with the beginning of time itself, or, time is fundamental and always existed so from it and the laws of physics the universe spontaneously arose from some quantum fluctuation. Now that we are smarter we have come to understand this true fact.

He talks of methodological empiricism as the correct way to learn the truth about the universe but he offers no direct empirical evidence for the origin of the universe in a big bang, or for the initial alleged low entropy state it started in, or for the spontaneous origin of life by random chance, or for the alleged Darwinian evolution of living organisms by natural selection over eons of history. We are essentially asked to just believe these as given facts as much as the author seems to. Only he offers up stories to justify his beliefs. As a book alleged to give the Big Picture of the Universe and all life in it, it fails on the very premise the author sets out to use—direct observation of the world to discover the truth.

Richard Dawkins is a hypocrite

As you may have heard Richard Dawkins suffered a stroke and recently was interviewed on the BBC. The interviewer even asked him about whether the stroke caused him to think about the afterlife. He affirmed there that he does not believe that there is anything else. That, in itself, is sad as he does not have too long left in this life.

But when asked about challenging religion and people who hold to religion, he said he only uses intellectual arguments. He said the way to argue is

“to always to do it on intellectual grounds, always to do it using argument, evidence, rather than insult.” (emphasis added)

(Watch between 3:54 – 4.01 mark in the video below) But he even went on in that interview to agree that it doesn’t matter to him if someone feels insulted by what he said.

What a total hypocrite! Previously on several occasions he has said that the way to argue is to use ridicule, which is the same as insults. See the video below.

Cancer in our society VI: Europe’s moral and spiritual vacuum invites acts of terrorism

Iben Thranholm
Danish journalist Iben Thranholm

This article is reposted from RT.com. It is a November 23rd, 2015, article titled Europe’s moral and spiritual vacuum invites acts of terrorism by Iben Thranholm a Danish journalist who examines political and social events with focus on their religious aspects, significance and moral implications. She is one of Denmark’s most widely read columnists on such matters.


Europe’s moral and spiritual vacuum invites acts of terrorism

by Iben Thranholm

These days the media are overflowing with comments and analyses of last Friday’s terrorist attacks in Paris. One particular angle is consistently ignored – or banished: religion.

This is a curious omission since the terrorists themselves issue statements that indicate that religion is their motivation.

The statement in which IS accepts responsibility for the attacks in Paris is made in the name of Allah and the killings are referred to as “a blessed battle whose causes of success were enabled by Allah”. It states that Paris was targeted because it is “a capital of prostitution and vice” and “the lead carrier of the cross in Europe.”ISIS claim responsibility

IS is consistently referring to the Parisians as “crusaders” – the audience at the Bataclan, however, are called “pagans gathered for a concert of prostitution and vice.” The statement closes with a terror threat to strike those who “dare to curse the Prophet and boasts about their war against Islam”.

A further look at the character of the attacks reveals with ever-increasing clarity their symbolic significance. They were carried out on a Friday, the Muslim holiday. The victims at the Bataclan were listening to music, which is banned in fundamentalistic Islam, and the first targets to be shot were guests at the bar drinking alcohol. The symbolism assumed a new dimension when the perpetrators started firing on the audience of a performance by the band ‘Eagles of Death Metal’ of its popular tune “Kiss the Devil”.

A series of images taken moments before the massacre started, members of the audience are seen making the hand sign used for devil worship, their index and little finger lifted in preparation for singing along with the lurid lyrics:

‘Sacred’ the Film

Georgia with her script
Georgia with her script

Recently I had the pleasure to meet and talk with a very passionate young Christian lady, Georgia, who has written a story called “Sacred“. It is a story about the sacredness of human life regardless of where it comes from or how it is conceived. She is so passionate about this she has thrown herself into it with other like-minded souls to make this full length feature film—a dramatised saga of the events in the life of young 16-year old girl called Jade. And Georgia, and her crew, are doing it on the back of the “smell of an oily rag.” All actors are trained actors but volunteers; the support staff are all volunteering their time. But they need support. These sort of films need money for non-labour costs that are only provisioned that way. I asked Georgia how she supports herself, and she said she works in MacDonald’s. Like the Apostle Paul she is ‘tent making’ but there are significant production costs.  It is a film designed to change lives—to change the culture.

Cancer in our society V: What would Muhammad do?

The question is often asked of Christians: What would Jesus do? This is often in hypothetical situations. It is often used frivolously, even in advertising. For example, this image (right) was used in a discussion on health insurance in the USA.

What would Jesus do for the uninsured?
What would Jesus do for the uninsured?

But often times this question is posed to trip up the believer with some difficult, or apparently difficult situation. Jesus himself was presented with many difficult problems by those who tried to trap him during His earthly ministry.

The adulterous woman
The adulterous woman

One such situation is the case of the woman caught in adultery (John 8:1-11).   The scribes and Pharisees brought a woman to him who was caught in the very act of adultery. (I don’t know why they didn’t bring the man also.) They challenged Jesus with:

Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou?  This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not. (John 8:5,6)

Jesus knowing their hearts, he could see their sin, said:

… He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her. (John 8:7)
