Mark of the Beast: Is the government planning to make us glow in the dark?

Ever since a team of Uruguayan scientists produced a glow-in-the-dark sheep earlier this year, scientists around the world have been injecting fluorescent jellyfish proteins into virtually every critter that walks, swims, barks, or quacks.  Earlier this week, researchers announced that they have successfully created cloned glow-in-the-dark rabbits.

The latest researchers involved in producing glowing animals are from the University of Hawaii's Institute for Biogenesis Research, and have produced a litter of eight rabbits, two of which glow bright green in the dark.  Dr. Stefan Moisyadi, a biogenesis researcher from Hawaii's Institute for Biogenesis Research, claims that the rabbits are not affected by the fluorescent protein and will have the same life expectancy and regular non-glowing rabbits.  "And on top of it, their fur is beginning to grow and the greenness is shining right through their fur. It’s so intense,” added Dr. Moisyadi.

According to the scientists involved in these experiments, the plan is to eventually introduce "beneficial" genes into larger animals, in the hopes of creating less expensive medicines.  “Sheep, cows, and even pigs,” Dr. Moisyadi said to “The benefits in doing it in large animals is to create bio-reactors that basically produce pharmaceuticals that can be made a lot cheaper.”

"[For] patients who suffer from hemophilia and they need the blood clotting enzymes in their blood, we can make those enzymes a lot cheaper in animals with barrier reactives rather than a factory that will cost billions of dollars to build," stated Dr. Moisyadi.

But is the goal really to produce cheaper medicine, or is this part of a more nefarious plot, such as a plan to brand certain humans with the "mark of the beast"?

According to the Institute for Biogenesis Research's website, the institute holds more than $12 million in government grant awards... which means that good old Uncle Sam is financially backing these glow-in-the-dark experiments.

With all of the government conspiracy talk floating around these days, one can easily imagine an America where certain "undesirables" are unknowingly injected with genetic material, perhaps genetic material that glows under black light, for instance.  One wave of a wand during a traffic stop or at the airport could alert your friendly neighborhood DHS or NSA agent that the "mark of the beast" is present, and the next thing you know, you just might find yourself rotting away in a secret government prison camp.

Over years, conspiracy theorists have imagined that the "mark of the beast" could be anything from a bar code tattooed onto our bodies to a microchip implanted under our skins.  If the government wanted to track and monitor certain individuals, these aforementioned methods would be somewhat impractical.  After all, implanting a microchip would involve abducting the chosen individual, rendering them unconscious, and then surgically implanting a mechanical device- and then hoping that the victim doesn't notice the surgical incision.

But injecting someone with genetic material, such as a material that glows under certain lighting conditions, would be virtually impossible for anyone to detect.  It could be surreptitiously injected into your body by your local family doctor when you get a flu shot, or by your dentist when he injects you with Novocaine.  It could be added to vaccines given to children.  And the scary part is that you will never know.

Before you scoff at the idea, consider this:

These glow-in-the-dark experiments are taking place during a time period in which our rights and freedoms are being stripped away at an alarming rate.  In September of this year, construction on the largest top-secret government facility in America will be complete.  The National Security Agency's Utah Data Center (officially known as the Intelligence Community Comprehensive National Cybersecurity Initiative Data Center) is a $2 billion facility designed to store intelligence data on the scale of yottabytes (for the record, one yottabyte is equal to 100,000,000,000 gigabytes).

And just what type of "data" will be collected and stored at this 1.5 million square foot facility?  It has been alleged that this data center will have the capacity to store every private email, cellphone call, and Internet search ever made or written.  Experts predict that the electricity bill alone for the Utah Data Center will run about $40 million a year, since the annual power demand will be in the vicinity of 65 megawatts.

Factor in the Affordable Care Act and other mandates which will grant the government total control of your body, and suddenly the idea of marking American citizens with glowing genetic material in an attempt to monitor our every move doesn't seem so far-fetched.

The Incest Capital of the World?

At the far eastern edge of Kentucky, nestled in Appalachia, resides Letcher County. In spite of its isolation and poverty (approximately 30% of the county's population lives below the poverty line), Letcher County has managed to grow at an impressive rate, from a population of just 9,172 in 1900 to a present-day population of nearly 25,000. However, even if Letcher County tripled or quadrupled its present population, there's still a pretty good chance that virtually all of the county's inhabitants would be related to each other-- thanks to one particularly fertile family whose astounding rate of reproduction can put even the friskiest rabbit to shame.

Around the year 1900, Letcher County was the home of a man by the name of Jason L. Webb, who made national headlines for having the one of the largest families in the world. According to newspaper reports of the era, Jason had 19 children, 175 grandchildren, and 100 great-grandchildren. Perhaps even more impressive was his b…

The Ticking Tombstone of Landenberg

If you look closely at a map of Pennsylvania, you'll see an anomalous semi-circular border at the extreme southeastern part of the state. This circle, known officially as the "Twelve Mile Circle", serves as the border between the Keystone State and Delaware. Much of the strange circle is surrounded by Chester County, one of the three original Pennsylvania counties created by William Penn in 1682. While there are many historical points of interest in Chester County, few are strange or as steeped in legend as the Ticking Tombstone.

Near the London Tract Meeting House in Landenberg is an old graveyard which contains a tombstone which is said to make eerie ticking noises, much like the ticking of a pocketwatch. Landenberg locals claim that the ticking is the result of two very famous surveyors who arrived in town during the 1760s- Charles Mason and Jeremiah Dixon.  A young child supposedly swallowed a valuable pocketwatch owned by Mason and later died, and the boy's head…

Jenny Hanivers, Mermaids, Devil Fish, and Sea Monks

Three centuries before P.T. Barnum attracted flocks of crowds with his mummified Fiji Mermaid (which turned out to be a papier-mâché creation featuring a monkey's head and a fish's body), sailors around the world had already began manufacturing "mermaids".  Known as Jenny Hanivers, these creations were often sold to tourists and provided sailors with an additional source of income.  These mummified creatures were produced by drying, carving, and then varnishing the carcasses of fish belonging to the order rajiformes- a group of flattened cartilaginous fish related to the shark which includes stingrays and skates.  These preserved carcasses can be made to resemble mermaids, dragons, angels, demons, and other mythical creatures.

Jenny Hanivers became popular in the mid-16th century, when sailors around the Antwerp docks began selling the novelties to tourists.  This practice was so common  in the Belgian city that it may have influenced the name; it is widely believed …
