“FBI Agent: Synthetic biology “…can reduce our population by significant percentages.”
One of the law enforcement speakers at the conference was FBI agent Carmine Nigro. He is quoted by the Times as saying regarding synthetic biology, “These technologies do not just pose a risk to individual buildings or cities, but if cleverly deployed, can reduce our population by significant percentages.”
FBI agent Carmine Nigro’s powerpoint presentation began ominously with a quote from philosopher Edmund Burke: “When bad men combine, the good must associate; else they will fall, one by one, an unpitied sacrifice in a contemptible struggle.”
This disturbing comment comes as synthetic biology is being quietly inserted into the food supply this year via synthetic biology vanilla.
Synthetic biology, according to a 2005 European Commission paper is “…the engineering of biology… the synthesis of complex, biologically based (or inspired) systems which display functions that do not exist in nature.” Unlike the older science of splicing genes from different species together, synthetic biology is seeking to create whole new organisms that do not exist on earth.
MIT’s agenda for the May 1 meeting states that “Just as analog/digital and digital/analog converters provide the interface between computers and the physical world of sensors and actuators, “biology/digital” and “digital/biology” converters are allowing computers to create and control biological worlds.”
While synthetic biology is being sold as a solution for renewable energy, health and food production, advanced technology in the hands of the right people can wreak havok.”
