‘As in the days of Noah.’ Genetic corruption and defilement of flesh.
Matthew 24:37 But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
Genesis 6:9, 11, 12 These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God. The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.
Genesis 7:1-4 And the Lord said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation. Of every clean beast thou shalt take to thee by sevens, the male and his female: and of beasts that are not clean by two, the male and his female. Of fowls also of the air by sevens, the male and the female; to keep seed alive upon the face of all the earth. For yet seven days, and I will cause it to rain upon the earth forty days and forty nights; and every living substance that I have made will I destroy from off the face of the earth.

Genetic Defilement: Human-animal hybrids to be developed in Japan after ban controversially lifted
Colin Drury Tuesday 30 July 2019. The Independent.
Human cells will be grown in rat and mouse embryos, then brought to term in a surrogate animal, as part of experiments set to be carried out at the University of Tokyo.
Supporters say the work – led by renowned geneticist Hiromitsu Nakauchi – could be a vital first step towards eventually growing organs that can then be transplanted into people in need.
But opponents have raised concerns that scientists are playing God.
They worry the human cells could stray beyond the targeted organs into other areas of the animal, effectively creating a creature that is part animal, part person.
For that reason, such prolonged experimentation has been effectively banned or gone unfinanced across the world in recent years.
In Japan itself, scientists were forbidden from going beyond a 14-day growth period. But those laws were relaxed in March when the country’s education and science ministry issued new guidelines saying such creations could now be brought to term.
Now, Dr Nakauchi’s application to experiment is the first to be approved under that new framework.
“We don’t expect to create human organs immediately, but this allows us to advance our research based upon the know-how we have gained up to this point,” he told the Asahi Shimbun newspaper.
He added that he planned to proceed slowly, and will not attempt to bring any hybrid embryos to term for some years, rather growing the hybrid mouse embryos to 14.5 days, when the animal’s organs are mostly formed, and the hybrid rat embryos to 15.5 days.
Such caution was welcomed by bioethicists in the country.
“It is good to proceed with caution,” said Tetsuya Ishii, science-policy researcher at Hokkaido University in Sapporo. “It will make it possible to have a dialogue with the public, which is feeling anxious and has concerns.”
