Are humans breeding with animals? Lambs born with human-like heads

Before you read further, look at the pic below and tell me what you think the head looks like.

Does that look like a sheep’s head to you? Or does the head look human?

Jamie Pyatt reports for Daily Mail, June 22, 2017, that villagers of Lady Frere in the Eastern Province of South Africa have been living in fear since a sheep gave birth to the creature in the pic above, believed by elders to be a half-human half-beast sent by the devil. “Many” of the 4,000 residents and farmers think bestiality and witchcraft had led to the birth of the creature.

A villager was quoted as saying: ‘”he elders when they saw it said it was sent by the devil and was born after a coupling between a man and a sheep and then there was panic. Many people are afraid and will not be happy until it is burned.”

The panic got so great that the Eastern Cape Department of Rural Development sent out experts to carry out tests after pictures of it spread like wildfire through the community.

Chief Director of Veterinary Services Dr. Lubabalo Mrwebi said the photo is not a hoax and admitted that at first glance the lamb which was born dead did resemble a human being. He insisted the creature was not part human, but was a severely deformed lamb that was sired by a sheep that had been infected by a Rift Valley Fever at an early stage of its pregnancy.

Dr. Mrwebi explained that humans cannot breed with sheep:

“It is worth noting that a sheep has 28 pairs of chromosomes while humans have 23 pairs which is important in dispelling the myth that a union of a sheep ovum and a human sperm can lead to a development of a viable life form. The deformed lamb exhibits signs that are consistent with an early foetal development that went wrong as a result of a viral infection and nothing more.”

Dr. Mrwebi said that the gestation period for a sheep is five months, which meant that the deformed lamb had been conceived in late December 2016 or early January 2017 — a time of plentiful rainfall that brought many mosquitoes and midges which are carriers of viruses that cause the Rift Valley Fever in sheep. Dr. Mrwebi concluded:

“It is fair to assume, therefore, that the [mother] sheep was infected by the RVF virus. The resultant circulation of the virus in the blood found its way through the maternal blood into the uterus and the foetus, which was at a very critical stage of development. The infected foetus then, as a result, failed to form properly, leading to the deformity that it became. It does look like a human form but it is not part human at all.”

The department’s veterinary officials would conduct a post-mortem on the creature and its results will be communicated to the public.

What happened in South Africa is not the first case of a lamb born with a humanlike face.

In 2010, a sheep in Turkey gave birth to a stillborn lamb (see below) with a human-like face. It had human features  of eyes, nose and mouth; only the ears were those of a sheep.

On January 13, 2010, AFP reports (via Daily Telegraph) that the lamb was born in a village not far from the city of Izmir, Turkey.

Veterinarian Erhan Elibol, 29, performed a caesarean on the pregnant sheep to take the lamb out, but was horrified to see that the features of the lamb’s snout bore a striking resemblance to a human face. Elibol said:

“I’ve seen mutations with cows and sheep before. I’ve seen a one-eyed calf, a two-headed calf, a five-legged calf. But when I saw this youngster I could not believe my eyes. His mother could not deliver him so I had to help the animal.”

Vets said that the lamb was a rare mutation due to the mother sheep’s fodder being abundant with vitamin A.

In September 2009, a goat in Zimbabwe, Africa, gave birth to a baby also with a human-like head. The mutant creature was hairless. Local residents said that even dogs were afraid to approach the bizarre animal. The locals burnt the body of the little goat, and biologists had no chance to study the rare mutation.It stayed alive for several hours until it was killed by frightened villagers.

The governor of the province where the goat was born said it was the fruit of an unnatural relationship between the female goat and a man:

“This incident is very shocking. It is my first time to see such an evil thing. It is really embarrassing. The head belongs to a man while the body is that of a goat. This is evident that an adult human being was responsible. Evil powers caused this person to lose self control. We often hear cases of human beings who commit bestiality but this is the first time for such an act to produce a product with human features.”

So can humans actually breed with animals, albeit the offsprings being still births?

Ewen Callaway reports for New Scientist, April 21, 2010, that a genetic study of nearly two thousand people from around the world suggests that some of our ancestors had bred with other species of humans, such as Neanderthals, at least twice — about 60,000 years ago in the eastern Mediterranean and, more recently, about 45,000 years ago in eastern Asia, Nature News reports from tge 2010 annual meeting of the American Society of Physical Anthropologists in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Since humans had bred with the different species of Neanderthals, can humans mate with other animal species today?

Writing for Slate, Nov. 14, 2006, Torie Bosch answered “Probably not.” But we don’t really know because ethical considerations preclude definitive research on the subject.

Nevertheless, Bosch insisted that:

“it’s safe to say that human DNA has become so different from that of other animals that interbreeding would likely be impossible. Groups of organisms tend to drift apart genetically when they get separated by geographical barriers . . . . When the two groups come back into contact with each other many, many years later, they may each have evolved to the point where they can no longer mate.

Bosch explains there are two types of changes that prevent animals of different species from interbreeding:

  1. Pre-zygotic reproductive isolating mechanisms: After so many generations apart, a pair of different species animals might look so different from one another that they’re not inclined to have sex. And if the animals do try to have sex, incompatible genitalia or sperm motility could pose another problem: A human spermatozoon may not be equipped to navigate the reproductive tract of a chimpanzee, for example.
  2. Post-zygotic reproductive isolating mechanisms: factors that would make it impossible for a hybrid animal fetus to grow into a reproductive adult, resulting in a miscarriage or sterile offspring. The further apart two animals are in genetic terms, the less likely they are to produce viable offspring.

Note that the two reasons given for why humans can’t interbreed with animals like sheep and goats are not iron-clad compelling:

(1) The assumption that humans look so different from animals that humans won’t find animals sexually attractive is belied by the fact that there are bestialists. See my posts:

(2) That a human-animal hybrid can’t grow into a reproductive adult, resulting in a miscarriage or sterile offspring, doesn’t mean that such hybrids don’t exist. It simply means that the offspring of a human and an animal is not viable, as in  the still-born human-face lambs in South Africa and Turkey, and the human-face goat in Zimbabwe.

Here’s another reason why the still-born grotesqueries in South Africa, Turkey, and Zimbabwe may in fact be human-animal hybrids: Ten years ago, scientists had created a a sheep that was 15% human.

Claudia Joseph reports for Daily Mail, March 27, 2007, that scientists had created the world’s first human-sheep chimera, with the body of a sheep and half-human organs. The sheep had 15% human cells and 85% animal cells.

Why would scientists do that? To grow animal organs for transplant into humans.

Professor Esmail Zanjani, of the University of Nevada, spent 7 years and £5 million perfecting the technique, which involved injecting adult human cells into a sheep’s foetus. He created a sheep liver with a large proportion of human cells and hoped to precisely match a sheep to a human transplant patient by using the human patient’s own stem cells to create his/her own flock of sheep. The process would involve extracting stem cells from the donor’s bone marrow and injecting them into the peritoneum of a sheep’s foetus. When the lamb is born, two months later, it would have a liver, heart, lungs and brain that are partly human and available for transplant.

Prof. Zanjani said:

“We would take a couple of ounces of bone marrow cells from the patient. We would isolate the stem cells from them, inject them into the peritoneum of these animals and then these cells would get distributed throughout the metabolic system into the circulatory system of all the organs in the body. The two ounces of stem cell or bone marrow cell we get would provide enough stem cells to do about ten foetuses. So you don’t just have one organ for transplant purposes, you have many available in case the first one fails.”

Ethical considerations aside, Dr. Patrick Dixon, an international lecturer on biological trends, warned: “Many silent viruses could create a biological nightmare in humans. Mutant animal viruses are a real threat, as we have seen with HIV.”

The creation of a sheep that was 15% human happened ten years ago. Since then, biologists’ helter-skelter creation of human-animal chimeras has advanced even further. See:

Expect to see more lambs and goats born with human-like faces in the future.

God help us.

Who’s grieving? This dog or these Sandy Hook parents?

Molika Ashford writes for Live Science, Dec. 28, 2010:

“People often assign feelings to animals […] But scientists haven’t determined whether these human-like expressions really mean anything. […]

Scientists believe that certain brain cells in humans called spindle cells are responsible for human social behavior and the interplay between thoughts and feelings. Studies have revealed that chimpanzee, dolphin and whale brains also possess spindle cells. Although these are all animals that can act people-like, the presence of these cells does not mean that the animals have feelings.

Even animals that don’t have spindle cells, such as dogs, have shown behaviors that can suggest a human-like social sense. In recent experiments, dogs have shown that they know to follow a human’s pointed finger to find a food treat. Scientists report that this shows dogs are sensitive to human social cues and are able to correctly interpret them. Still, this only proves that dogs know how to find food, not that they have feelings.

[…] In a recent study, a Barnard College researcher tested dogs to see if their guilty looks were linked to actual bad behavior. Dogs were tempted with a treat and told by their owners not to eat it.

The dog’s owners weren’t allowed to see whether their pets had eaten the treat or not, but were told either that they did or that they didn’t, and were then instructed to scold the dogs that disobeyed. The experimenters noted that scolded dogs showed a guilty look whether or not they had actually done wrong.

This illustrates the difficulty in accurately interpreting animal behavior as a marker of human-like feelings. A guilty look suggests a feeling of guilt in a human but not necessarily in a dog, according to the Barnard research. Similarly, even apparent mourning or empathy behavior might not actually mean these feelings are present in the brains of animals.

Oh yeah?

Tell me this dog, grieving over the death of a companion, doesn’t have feelings. Note his repeated gasping/choking toward the end of the video, his entire body shaking.

And yet we are to believe Christopher and Lynn McDonnell are grieving parents whose child, Grace, was killed by Adam Lanza in Sandy Hook Elementary School on Dec. 14, 2012.

I don’t need “scientists” to tell me the meaning of what I can see with my own eyes, which is that the dog was overcome with feelings of distraught and grief, whereas the smiling and tearless McDonnells were acting.

If the McDonnells were grieving, they sure have a strange way of showing it. I’d sure like to see “scientists” explain their peculiar display of “feelings” over their 7-year-old daughter’s murder.

By the way, Christopher and Lynn McDonnell are among the Sandy Hook residents who purchased their home on December 25, 2009, for $0.

Hollyweird “stars” who want our taxes to pay for Planned Parenthood abortions

These libtards apparently think 1) we care about their opinions and 2) you are too stupid to figure out how to contact your senator.

Know who to boycott.

From Daily Mail: The looming vote on the controversial Senate Republicans’ health care bill has motivated Hollywood to take part in the rancorous debate.

A-listers Jennifer Lawrence, Jon Hamm and Lena Dunham, joined a plethora of 25 more celebrities including Aubrey Plaza, Padma Lakshmi, Suki Waterhouse, Elisabeth Moss, Spike Jonze, Amy Poehler and Brie Larson among many others to create a video on Friday supporting Planned Parenthood.

In the opening frame, superimposed text reads ‘these famous faces want to help you reach your representative.’

A number of celebrities follow with their names before the actual message of the video starts with superstar director of Her and Being John Malkovich Spike Jonze.

The message ‘We need you to contact your United States senator and you can do that by visiting istandwithpp.org/call’ is then carried on by several more celebrities.

After an example of how to leave a message for senators suggesting a no vote for ‘any attempt to defund Planned Parenthood,’ a more personal message is expressed.

‘This is nothing more than a blatantly political attempt to do whatever it takes to attack women’s health and rights and take health care away from the people who need it the most,’ declare another series of celebrities.

Famous activist Gloria Steinem also appears, saying ‘the right to decide our own bodily future is the most basic of all human rights.’

In a statement accompanying the release of the video, Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood Action Fund, said: ‘We are so grateful to have the support of so many artists, many of whom have themselves relied on Planned Parenthood for health care and who understand the importance of speaking out.’

‘This support is especially important right now as the Senate is jamming through a bill that would block millions of women from getting birth control and cancer screenings at Planned Parenthood. Now is the time to speak out. One in five women in this country rely on Planned Parenthood for care. They will not stay silent as politicians vote to take away their care and their rights.’

Anticipating its universal unpopularity, Senate Republicans led by Mitch McConnell crafted the bill in secret and only released the actual text of the bill earlier this week.

The bill would end Obama’s tax penalties on people who don’t buy insurance – effectively ending the so-called individual mandate – and on larger companies that don’t offer coverage to their workers, according to AP.

It would offer less generous subsidies for people than Obama’s law but provide billions to states and insurance companies to buttress markets that in some areas have been abandoned by insurers, and has language blocking federal money Planned Parenthood.

Democrats said the measure would result in skimpier policies and higher out-of-pocket costs for many and erode gains made under Obama that saw roughly 20 million additional Americans gain coverage.

Girl bye: Lisa Durden fired following her racist BLM remarks on ‘Tucker Carlson Tonight’

lisa durden

Lisa Durden is now a “victim”

Boo- hoo-hoo.

From Fox News: A New Jersey college professor who appeared on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” to defend a black-only Black Lives Matter event has been fired after the college’s president said she made racially insensitive comments on the show, according to reports.

Essex County College in Newark announced Lisa Durden’s firing Friday. She taught communications and pop culture classes as an adjunct, the Newark Star-Ledger reported.

On his June 6 show, Carlson and Durden, who is black, got into a heated exchange over the appropriateness of allowing only blacks to attend a Black Lives Matter event in New York City on Memorial Day.

“Listen. What I say to that is boo-hoo-hoo,” she said. “You white people are angry because you couldn’t use your ‘white privilege’ card to get invited to the Black Lives Matter’s all-black Memorial Day celebration! Wow!”

Two days after the show, the school suspended Durden with pay. She addressed the matter with school officials Tuesday, three days before the firing was announced.

College president Anthony Munroe said Friday the Fox News appearance prompted calls from students, faculty and prospective students and their families “expressing frustration, concern and even fear that the views expressed by a college employee with influence over students would negatively impact their experience on the campus.”

He noted that although Durden did not mention her affiliation with the school during the show or claim to be representing its views, “her employment with us and potential impact on students required our immediate review into what seemed to have become a very contentious and divisive issue.” 

Munroe went further in explaining his reasons for firing Durden in a lengthy statement — in which he invoked the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.

“The character of this institution mandates that we embrace diversity, inclusion and unity,” he said. “Racism cannot be fought with more racism.” 

Durden declined comment Sunday when contacted by Fox News.

She has said that she was “publicly lynched” by the school.

On Friday, she told the Star-Ledger that she has received a lot of support from school staff members and students, but compared her experience to a rape victim who is blamed for the crime, and a person who returns from war to a hostile environment.

“I thought it would be a safe place for me,” she told the paper, referring to the college. “I thought when I came home from war, I would be safe.” Instead she said she was fired.

Durden’s attorney, Leslie Farber, said she believes her client’s free speech rights were violated. “It is free speech guaranteed by the 1st Amendment of the US Constitution and New Jersey law,” Farber told Fox News Sunday.

The attorney said they were considering whether to take legal action in the matter.

What a dhimmi: Justin Trudeau wears “Ramadan” socks at “Pride” parade

trudeau meme

Oh look, another liberal performs virtual signaling. How quaint.

He forgot to check the Ramadan Bombathon tally.

From Breitbart: Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau wore Ramadan-themed socks during an LGBT Pride parade in Toronto on Sunday.

Trudeau was photographed wearing the socks at a service just before the parade, where he also wished attendees a happy “Pride Mubarak” in celebration of the end of Ramadan.

“Trudeau was joined by his wife, Sophie Grégoire Trudeau, and their children Xavier and Ella-Grace. Grégoire Trudeau waved a rainbow flag, one of the symbols of the LGBTQ community,” reported TheStar.com. “Trudeau also wished the crowd a happy ‘Pride Mubarak,’ a play on words referring to the end-of-Ramadan celebrations happening in the Muslim community Sunday — celebrations Trudeau honoured with a pair of brightly coloured socks.”

In his speech, Trudeau declared “This is all about including people.”

“It’s all about how we celebrate the multiple layers of identities that make Canada extraordinary and strong, and today we celebrate with the entire LGBTQ community,” he continued.

This did not extend to Toronto police officers, who were reportedly asked not to march in uniform following demands from Black Lives Matter activists in 2016. According to TheStar.com, dozens of officers traveled from Toronto to New York to march in uniform as part of the New York Pride parade.

Being gay or bisexual is punishable by death in thirteen countries, all of which are majority-Muslim nations.

The synagogue of Satan

Karl Marx

Karl Marx

The “Synagogue of Satan” subject keeps injecting itself into our discussions, so here is one treatment of the subject.

Bernie Sanders

Personally speaking (in a non-scholarly way), whenever I see Karl Marx, Bernie Sanders, George Soros or some putrid Hollywood mogul, the term, “synagogue of satan,” comes to mind.

The following treatment (which is slightly different than my opinion) can be found at: https://www.gotquestions.org/synagogue-of-Satan.html.


Question: “What is the synagogue of Satan in Revelation?”

Answer: The synagogue of Satan is mentioned twice in Revelation, once in Jesus’ letter to the first-century church in Smyrna and once to the church in Philadelphia. In both cases, the synagogue of Satan is opposed to the mission and message of the church.

To the church in Smyrna, Jesus says, “I know your afflictions and your poverty—yet you are rich! I know about the slander of those who say they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan” (Revelation 2:9).

To the church of Philadelphia in Asia Minor, Jesus says, “I will make those who are of the synagogue of Satan, who claim to be Jews though they are not, but are liars—I will make them come and fall down at your feet and acknowledge that I have loved you” (Revelation 3:9).

In short, the synagogue of Satan was a group of unbelieving Jews who were persecuting Christians. These groups were guilty of slandering the church in Smyrna and opposing the church in Philadelphia in some way.

The majority of the persecution the New Testament church faced came from the Jewish community. Even most of the Roman persecution was an effort to appease the Jewish authorities. This is true of Pilate’s condemnation of Jesus (John 19:1–16) and Paul’s imprisonment by the Roman governors Felix (Acts 24:27) and Festus (Acts 25:16). This pattern held true throughout the Roman world in the first century. As long as Christians were considered a sect of Judaism, they were exempt from the required observance of certain aspects of Roman state religion. However, as Christians were expelled from synagogues and denounced by the Jewish leadership, Rome began to see Christianity as a new religion that did not have these same exemptions. Therefore, Christians outside the protective umbrella of the synagogue were open to Roman persecution.

The synagogue of Satan say they are Jews (the people of God), and they persecute those who believe in Jesus the Messiah (the true people of God). In reality, by rejecting the Jewish Messiah, they have renounced their status as “true” Jews, and that is why Jesus calls them “liars.” This distinction between ethnic Jews and faithful Jews is also seen in Romans 9:6 (“Not all who are descended from Israel are Israel”) and Romans 2:28–29 (“For he is not a Jew who is one outwardly, nor is circumcision that which is outward in the flesh. But he is a Jew who is one inwardly; and circumcision is that which is of the heart, by the Spirit, not by the letter”). By their persecution of the true people of God, these unbelieving Jews had become a synagogue of Satan—a gathering of people who were actually following the devil’s priorities.

Both churches are promised victory over the synagogue of Satan. This promise echoes Isaiah 60:14: “The children of your oppressors will come bowing before you; all who despise you will bow down at your feet.” In the context of Isaiah 60, an oppressed Jerusalem will be vindicated. Those who oppress her will bow down at her feet and will have to admit that she is indeed blessed by God—in the language of Revelation 3:9—that God loves her. But Isaiah 60:14 applied to these Jews and the Church is something of a reversal. In Isaiah 60, the oppressing Gentiles will bow down at the feet of Jews and admit that God loves them. In Revelation 2—3, oppressing Jews will bow down at the feet of the persecuted Church (with a significant population of Gentiles in it) and admit that God loves them. This is a striking role reversal.

Internet searches of “synagogue of Satan” produce quite a few links to sites that claim the “synagogue of Satan” refers to the Jewish people today and that promote all kinds of conspiracy theories about how the Jews run the world. Quite frankly, this is a misinterpretation and misapplication of the verses in Revelation. The synagogue of Satan refers to specific Jewish communities in Smyrna and Philadelphia that were persecuting the church, not to any modern situation. Likewise, no modern situation should be used as an interpretive tool to explain a passage firmly rooted in the first-century Roman world. ❦

Democratic Official Fired for Saying He’s ‘Glad’ Scalise Was Shot

phil montag

Phil Montag cries the “taken out of context” excuse

The demorats did the correct thing, this time. Don’t expect it to become a long-lasting pattern.

From Yahoo: Nebraska Democrats removed party official Phil Montag from his job on Thursday after a recording surfaced of him saying he wishes House Majority Whip Steve Scalise died during a recent attack.

Earlier this month, a gunman opened fire with a rifle on a group of Republican politicians practicing for the Congressional baseball game, striking Scalise and several others. Scalise remains in the hospital with a long recovery ahead after multiple surgeries.

“His whole job is to get people, convince Republicans to f—–g kick people off f—–g health care. I’m glad he got shot,” Montag, the technology’s committee former co-chair, said in the audio recording.

Montag continued: “I wish he was f—–g dead.”

Nebraska Democratic Party Chairwoman Jane Kleeb confirmed to FOX 42 News in Nebraska on Thursday it was really Montag’s voice.

“We obviously condemn any kind of violence, whether it’s comments on Facebook or comments in a meeting,” said Kleeb told the Fox affiliate.

Kleeb fired Montag as soon as she heard the recording, according to the Omaha World-Herald. The conversation took place in a private home in Omaha, according to the paper.

When reached by the World-Herald, Montag said, “I did not call for the congressman’s death,” and claimed the tape had been taken out of context.
