 September 10 - Our Country Is Embracing Satanism at an Alarming Rate; Here's Proof
 Article: Perilous Times

Comment from UTT:
While church attendance in America is on the decrease, interest in Satanic rituals is on the increase. Biblical history reveals high peaks of Satanic activity occur when God is ignored or rejected. The Bible indicates this is also a time when God's judgment often occurs
As attendance declines at Christian churches all over America, many Satanic groups are experiencing tremendous growth. For some, embracing Satanism is the ultimate form of rebellion, for others it is about making an anti-Trump political statement, and yet others claim that they are attracted by the very real power that they discover in Satanism.

Every week, bizarre rituals are conducted in basements, meeting halls and public facilities all over the country, and most Americans have absolutely no idea what is going on. Of course, most mainstream news articles about Satanists attempt to portray them as ordinary people who have simply been "misunderstood." And ultimately that is what the Satanists are trying to do for Satan-they are trying to get all the rest of us to view Satan or Lucifer as a "misunderstood" being that only has humanity's best interests at heart. And since the values of Satanism line up more accurately with the values of modern society than Christian values do, Satanists are finding increasing success in bringing in new recruits.

 September 7 - Lab-Grown Mini-Brains Are Causing An Ethical Uproar
 Article: Transhumanism

Comment from UTT:
Transhumanism is an attempt by mankind to use technology to make humans immortal. The following article provides evidence on how some scientists are attempting to do this.

This is further development of President Obama's multibillion-dollar brain-map initiative started in 2013. Just as human DNA was 'mapped', the BRAIN project was to probe the human brain in action and figure out exactly how it works. Driving forces behind this included Transhumanists who seek immortality through science. ⁃ TN Editor

Writing in the current online issue of the journal Stem Cells and Development, researchers at University of California San Diego School of Medicine describe development of a rapid, cost-effective method to create human cortical organoids directly from primary cells. Experimental studies of developing human brain function are limited. Research involving live embryonic subjects is constrained by ethical concerns and the fragile nature of the brain itself. Animal models only partially mimic or recapitulate human biology and cognitive function. Single cell studies do not capture the complexity of neural networks. In recent years, the development of in vitro human organoids - three-dimensional, miniaturized, simplified versions of an organ produced from reprogrammed stem cells - have allowed scientists to study biological functions, diseases and treatments more realistically and in greater detail.

"And that includes the brain," said Alysson R. Muotri, PhD, professor in the UC San Diego School of Medicine departments of Pediatrics and Cellular and Molecular Medicine, director of the UC San Diego Stem Cell Program and a member of the Sanford Consortium for Regenerative Medicine. "Cerebral organoids can form a variety of brain regions. They exhibit neurons that are functional and capable of electrical excitation. They resemble human cortical development at the gene expression levels."

 September 11 - 'USA Today' Warns: You Will Get Microchipped
 Article: Technology For A Global Monetary System

Comment from UTT:
Two decades ago the possibility that humans would accept micro chipping for identification purposes seemed unlikely. Now it is not only acceptable, there are many who are seeking to have it done. The end times system for financial transactions the Bible foretells is soon to be implemented on a global basis.
At one time, the notion that the general population would be microchipped someday was a "conspiracy theory", but now the mainstream media is coming right out and telling us that we will all get chipped. It is almost as if they are trying to mentally condition us to accept what is coming. Of course it is being portrayed as "cool" and "trendy," and a lot of people will be fooled by that.

But if someday identity chips are required for the entire population, the potential for tyranny would be off the charts. Unfortunately, some sort of permanent digital identification is increasingly being pushed as the solution to problems such as identity theft, tax evasion, illegal immigration and money laundering. And tech companies would love to have a universal way to confirm the identities of individuals on the Internet. But very few people are talking about the dark side of this technology, and that is a very frightening thing.
