Third in a Series, Reviewing Chapter Two of Pandemonium's Engine
The second essay of Pandemonium's Engine, Nimrod: The First (and Future) Transhuman "Super Soldier," by J. Michael Bennett, PhD, was an odyssey in reading. At 60 pages, it is PE's second longest chapter, and it nearly bowled me over.
Will the Beast of The Revelation be the first "posthuman?" What a funny question. Becoming familiar with HER jargon is disorienting. As I read Dr. Bennett's insights, I felt my head growing from its usual size, sitting on my shoulders, to enlarging to fill a cavernous, musty chapel, stale with the mildew of ancient liturgies; till finally I felt myself inside an immense and empty castle that held too many secrets and whispers. Haunted, it could not be inhabited. But as I left, I felt some wonder and dread over the ways of evil that are normally invisible, yet so gigantic and targeted in their mission —to destroy us!
Dr. Bennett's has been a leader in a government aerospace laboratory and a small business owner. He has been called "Dr. Future" and I enjoyed listening to an interview with him on BlogTalkRadio.
Dr. Bennett is a conservative Christian who advises extreme caution in exploring the realm of the "sciences" relating to the Transhuman movement. You may enjoy visiting his website, http://www.futurequake.com. There you will find a link to a speech he made to a United Nations IIIHS Conference on the Coming Collision of Heaven and Earth. If you take time to listen to this presentation, you will gain respect for Dr. Bennett as a Bible-believing Christian who has fearlessly researched where most dare not tread. Never study the occult if you are not ensconced in the power of the blood of Jesus.
On the web, I found this further background:
He received his Ph.D in engineering in 2003... He served as a leader in a military lab for sixteen years, developing protection technologies and other weird science contraptions. Since 2003, he has operated his own company, which combines technology development and consulting for military, governmental and commercial organizations, with his own in-house development of novel protection technologies. These technologies, invented and patented by Dr. Future, have been a major success in the marketplace, currently protecting police cars, race cars and military vehicles, and soon to include commercial buildings.
His chapter covers many facts that are relatively unknown to the general populace such as Hitler's close occult ties and overarching goals, Nimrod's (the Nimrod of Genesis 10) history in myth and literature, Masonic rituals and much more.
Bennett states that the book of Enoch describes the work of demons in creating the Nephilim and animal-human hybrids in an effort to destroy the ‘seed of the woman.’ Will we gain important insights by reading such works found in the Dead Sea Scrolls?
Our Canon does not include the book of Enoch except by reference in Jude: And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints, to execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard [speeches] which ungodly sinners have spoken against him. (Jude 1:14, 15)
I see a stage set for a battle that will fulfill every prophetic word even as it shatters believing hearts that failed to prepare for the worst. Our journey to fathom transhumanism must pass through wells without water (2 Peter:17) and many disturbances, but we can return and rest in the Atonement and find strength in Jesus’ words: All power is given unto me in heaven and earth. (Mat 28:18).
