Could this be the "abomination of desolation standing in the holy place"? Are not our bodies supposed to be a temple and thus a holy place if we walk with God? What other Holy Place in this world is worth mentioning? Christ has no official temple on this earth besides us. Are not the promises of Transhumanism the perfect antichrist (in place of)? It promises eternal life, no sickness, no poverty, and all with the signpost saying "Kindgom of God, without God". Is there a more complete mark of rebellion against God than committing your spirit to a machine? "Matthew 24:22 And except those days had been shortened, no flesh would have been saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened." He says flesh, not person. The prince of this world has erected a stone monument called the Georgia Guidestones which outlines a genocidal plan of murdering billions of people. Looks like he intends on stuffing the apostates inside of computer chips. There is simply no way to undo this when it has been done, thus when you get this mark, you will never be able to remove it. When inside the machine you can be mentally tormented without limit for any length of time. "they will long to die, but death will elude them" When I tell people about the promises of transhumanism they are very positive about it till I illustrate to them who will be with you in this man made heaven. Ever read news comments? Or unmoderated forums? Eventually people show their true colors. And their hearts are evil continually. That's who will be with you. Is it possible? Its inevitable at this point. Information technology improves about 750 times every decade, and even more with specialized silicon like machine vision. This means that the machine complex that beat the jeopardy contestants will be a single node on a hand held computer. Not to mention they can have networked intelligence with millions of nodes. 10 years is not that long from now. in 20 years computers will be millions of times more powerful than they are today.
