 May 24 - Hybrid human chicken embryos: HALF HUMAN - HALF CHICKEN abomination created in US lab
 Article: Cloning And Genetic Engineering

Comment from UTT:
Combining human and chicken genetic information defies the Creator God who made all life. This will not go without judgment in the future.

A TEAM of stem cell researchers have done the seemingly impossible and successfully combined artificial human cells with the embryo of a chicken in a shock new experiment aimed at trying to better understand developing life.

Until now, scientists have been unable to answer how certain cells in a developing embryo decide to become muscles or limbs, while others become bones and nerves.

But now researchers led by Dr Ali Brivanlou, from Rockefeller University in New York, have achieved the unimaginable in a shock experiment. By grafting petri dish-grown human cells onto the embryo of a chicken the scientists were for the first time ever able to observe how cells organise themselves. The study was published this week in the science journal Nature where the scientists unveiled the inner machinations of so-called 'organiser cells'.

 Article: One World Religion

Comment from UTT:
The trend towards ecumenical unification of all religions ending up in a global one world religion is a sign of our times. This article provides evidence how this is happening.
The largest United Methodist Church congregation in the United States hosted a dinner with the local Muslim community as part of the Islamic season of Ramadan. Church of the Resurrection of Leawood, Kansas, which is headed by the Rev. Adam Hamilton, hosted the iftar dinner, the meal which Muslims eat after sunset during Ramadan, on May 22.

In an interview with The Christian Post on Wednesday, Hamilton explained that his church wanted to "dissipate fear" and "demonstrate the love of Christ" by holding the event. "We've been trying to look for ways to build bridges with the Muslim community in Kansas City and to demonstrate the love of Christ to them," said Hamilton. "There's an organization here in Kansas City who said [to us], 'is there any interest you all would have in having an iftar dinner with us?' We talked about it last year and we said, 'let's do that.'"
