In Russia in March of 2012, the Global Future: 2045 Conference or ‘GF2045′ held to focus on the Singularity – the moment when humanity will physically combine with machines to allow for humans to live outside of the physical body, with robot “avatar” bodies and overcome disease, pain and even death. While it sounds like the stuff of a science fiction movie, it is a very real movement and field of study for scientists who believe that humanity is on the cusp of its next stage of evolution. And it once again reveals an attempt to reach immortality without the God of the Bible.
As the conference states on its own website:
The Global Future 2045 Congress is a nonprofit organization with the goal of creating a network community with the world’s leading scientists in the field of life extension and to support them as an investment hub, contributing to various projects.
The Congress objectives included:
- Presenting the newest developments in the fields of cognitive sciences, robotics, and modeling of living systems
- Evaluating the potential for transforming planetary civilization in light of the rapid pace of technological development
- Analyzing possible scenarios for the development of civilization in the context of new concepts regarding universal history, or “Big History”
- Discussing strategic problems arising in a dynamically changing world and the potential for the appearance of a global or cosmic mode of thinking. (source)
The conference, premised on the ideas of Ray Kurzweil, a scientist and entrepreneur who has been called “the rightful heir to Thomas Edison” for his innovations, which include CCD flat-bed scanner, the first omni-font optical character recognition, the first print-to-speech reading machine for the blind, the first text-to-speech synthesizer, the first music synthesizer capable of recreating the grand piano and other orchestral instruments, and the first commercially marketed large-vocabulary speech recognition. Additionally, he also selected 2045 as the year the Singularity would become a reality.
GF2045 thus focused on “life-extension” technologies that would give a person the ability to keep living well past the time of death for their physical bodies. To give an idea of some of the credentials of the people involved here is a sample:
Eric Chaisson -Professor of Astrophysics Harvard University, Board Member, IBHA.
David Christian – President of the International Big History Association (D.Phil. Oxford, 1974)
Alexander Bolonkin – Astrophysicist, NASA Senior Research Fellow
Vladimir Pavlovsky – Chief scientific officer at the M.V. Keldysh Institute of Applied Mathematics of the Russian Academy of Sciences
And many other academics, scientists, astronauts and investors comprise the main membership of this conference. This is not an assembly of fringe lunatics but serious academics and those dedicated to genuinely advancing humanity.
The video below, produced by the conference, outlines their goals of reaching the Singularity (we strongly recommend watching this to fully understand the goals of the conference and Singularity Theory):
The video describes current society on the brink of disaster and basically wasting time on useless issues. And the answer is using robot/cyborg technology to “transfer one’s personality to an artificial carrier.” All for the “race for immortality.”And once achieved through cybernetic and nanotechnology, humanity can create “new ethics”, “new society” and a “new mankind” that, thanks to their own abilities and achievement, can live forever. And clearly this new civilization will not be doing any of this with the Bible or the God of the Bible.
“Ye Shall Not Surely Die” – Satan’s Original Deception
The social movement Russia 2045 was conceived of as a means of promoting the idea of humanity attaining cybernetic immortality. As the founders of the movement, we believe that these technologies in particular will provide the impulse that is so necessary right now to accelerate technological progress. It is cybernetic immortality in particular that will be able to grant people real freedom, including freedom from influence by the environment and the opportunity to explore the far reaches of space. Moreover, it’s possible that this scenario will become a reality sooner than other such possibilities for extending life span all the way to immortality. (source)
The promise of immortality originated in the Bible with God. The Creator of humanity, told his first 2 children, Adam and Eve that they could live in the paradise of Eden with the only threat being eating from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Satan, who entered the Garden to lure the two first humans into sin, enticed Eve by contradicting God’s Word and offering his version of “immortality”:
Now the serpent was more [subtle] than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil. — Genesis 3:1-5.
Satan first had to convince Eve that God’s Word was not true and then he could entice her with his false offer of that “ye shall not surely die.” And beyond that he told her by disobeying God and choosing her own way “ye shall be as gods.”
Humanity, in pride in its own power and ability will attempt to achieve what only God offers. Similar to the Tower of Babel, the Singularity movement, despite its intentions, relies solely on human ability to “reach Heaven.” Notice that all of the ills of society: war, violence And that is at the root of the evolutionary movement, which now goes by the name of transhumanism (which the video references). The term “transhumanism” was coined by Julian Huxley who was the first Director of UNESCO and a member of the English Eugenics Society. Our article on the ‘X-Men: First Class’ movie, detailed the Eugenics movement of the early 20th century.
Eugenics was most notably led by Francis Galton, the cousin of Charles Darwin. Eugenics was the study and science of improving humanity through “good breeding” — in other words, promoting the reproduction among racial superiors, while trying to get “inferior races” to stop reproducing through forced sterilization. Thus programs such as forced sterilization and abortions were promoted to increase the quality of race in society. Galton defined eugenics as:“Eugenics is the study of agencies under social control that may improve or impair the racial qualities of future generations, whether physically or mentally.”
By 1935, 27 American States had enacted eugenics laws. But while social programs to control reproduction among the poor and non-White races were effective, Galton wanted Eugenics to eventually become a religion. Julian Huxley voiced the same sentiment with regards to transhumanism. But Galton was so passionate about the spiritual aspect of what he was doing that he named his publication on Eugenics: Lucifer the Light Bearer (the name was later changed to much more scientific sounding The American Journal of Eugenics).
Again, the connection between evolution, rebellion against God and Satan could not be clearer as the main scientific journal on eugenics was named after the Devil himself. Julian Huxley was also linked to satanist Aleister Crowley during his time living in Great Britain.
The Bible states that no race or group of people are superior to any other:
And [God] hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation; That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us: (Acts 17:26-27).
The present futurist movement it is not so much about race as it is about going beyond being a human:
The world is on the verge of global change. The rate of globally significant events, and that of discoveries and crises, is growing exponentially. We are facing the choice: To fall into a new Dark Age — into affliction and degradation – or to find a new model for human development and create not simply a new civilization, but a new mankind.

This falls right in line with the Illuminati’s agenda of “eternal life” and eolution through man’s own knowledge. As the Cutting Edge news site wrote on the New World Order’s goals regarding this:
The number ’33′ is his highest number, and the number representing the spiritual path to perfection and physically immortality! ..Since the reign of Sir Francis Bacon and Queen Elizabeth I (1590 – 1603), Rosicrucianism and Freemasonry have ruled England and Europe with an increasingly iron hand. Once Adam Weishaupt established the Masters of the Illuminati on May 1, 1776, Freemasonry has been gradually moving the entire world into the Kingdom of Antichrist — New World Order. This is the society where the ultimate goal is that from “The Christ” on downward, all the peoples of the world still living after the “Cleansing Cycle” will so spiritually evolve, along the paths described above, that they will attain immortality on earth. The numeric symbol of this high degree of spiritual attainment will be ’33′, and the physical symbol will be the Third Eye that will open up physically between the eyes. This is the ultimate goal; unfortunately, to achieve it, a lot of people are going to have to die. (source)
Manly P. Hall, one of the most celebrated Freemasons of all time wrote of this mythical bird: “The Phoenix, it is said, lives for 500 years, and at its death its body opens and the new-born Phoenix emerges. Because of this symbolism, the Phoenix is generally regarded as representing immortality and resurrection.” (Manly P. Hall, The Secret Destiny of America , 1958, p. 176-77; Emphasis added)
The Illuminati Card Game, a role-playing game created in the early 1990′s there are a number of eerie predictions about future society under the Illuminati that have now actually happened (for example, it’s predictions of terror attacks on the Pentagon and the World Trade Center. For more on this game, see here). Interestingly, one of the cards is on Immortality (special thanks to our reader Excalibur for pointing this out):
Illuminati Predictive Programming
With a development with so much potential, it is no surprise that Hollywood has done its part to implant the idea in the mind of the public psyche beforehand. Here is the trailer for the 2009 movie “Surrogates” that seems to embody many of the same ideas of the GF2045 conference:
Humanity: Made In The Image of God
And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. 27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. – Genesis 1:26-27
Rather than being a product of evolution from germs in a pile of sludge, humans were made as they appear today, based on the image of God. Evolutionary thought seeks to refute the Bible by saying man evolved over millions of years from a tiny germ to a fish, to a monkey and then to humans today. And thus the logical conclusion is that if we have come this far in our evolution, then naturally we should keep working to evolve into something other than human. This is very important to Satan’s agenda.
From the days of the Flood, Satan has attempted to corrupt the human gene pool first by leading the first child of Adam and Eve, the wicked Cain, into sin, then by sending his fallen angels to interact with humanity as “gods” and take human women as wives having angelic-human hybrid offspring, the Nephilim. The aim of genetic manipulation was to prevent the birth of the Messiah that was prophesied to defeat Satan by corrupting humanity with the DNA of cursed, satanic beings (for more on this see our article here). The Devil failed to do this but has not quit on trying to alter humanity. Because even though Jesus Christ has already come to Earth and won victory by His death on the cross and resurrection, He was a savior of human beings. So by turning people into something other than human, Satan can try to prevent people in the future from being saved.
Daniel Chapter 2: Prophesied Genetic Manipulation
In Daniel Chapter 2, the prophet Daniel interprets a dream of the Babylonian King Nebuchadnezzar. The King could not even recall his dream, but only remembered that it frightened him to death. Daniel prayed to God and was not only given the vision of the dream, he also received the interpretation. The dream centered on a statue whose head was gold, torso was of silver, midsection of bronze, legs of iron and feet of iron and clay, with each element representing successive global empires until the final empire to rule before the end of the world. This is the relevant aspect for this discussion:
And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of potters’ clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as thou sawest the iron mixed with miry clay. 42 And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken. 43 And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay. — Daniel 2:41-43
The final Kingdom on Earth will involve two different sets of “people” represented as iron and clay. As shown in the X-Men article, iron is repeatedly used in the Bible to symbolize the angelic realm, while clay represents humanity (in fact God made the first man, from clay). So this final Kingdom appears to be a hybrid Kingdom. This is further confirmed in verse 43 where the Bible states: “they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men.” To understand the word “seed” here are other uses of it in Scripture:
- And Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a son, and called his name Seth: For God, said she, hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew. – Genesis 4:25
- And Abram said, Behold, to me thou hast given no seed: and, lo, one born in my house is mine heir. – Genesis 15:3.
Throughout the book of Genesis, the word “seed” is a genetic reference to DNA of one’s progeny. And thus in the end times, Satan’s Kingdom will attempt one more time to “mingle” or alter humanity.
The Antichrist – Will He Offer Immortality?
The Antichrist, the False Messiah, empowered by Satan who will rule the Earth during the Day of The Lord or Great Tribulation (the final years before the Second Coming of Christ), will secure his power by amazing the world when suffers a moral wound and comes back to life. Is it possible that the Antichrist offers this same ability to society as well? The Bible does not state this specifically but it does speak of a time during the Great Tribulation when those who do not believe in God will not be able to die:
And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit. And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit. And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power. And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads. And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man. And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them. – Revelation 9:1-6
The same evil angels and demons who were punished for fathering the Nephilim hybrids will be released from their prison to torment all people who do not have God’s seal that He puts on His followers on Earth. And men will be in so much agony that will try to kill themselves but will not be able to. Could it be that those who follow the Antichrist are offered “immortality” but then it turns out to be a curse as they are suffering to the point they want to die? (B&E: This is offered as pure speculation and just something for the reader to consider and research).
Jesus Christ – The Way to True Immortality
Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this? — John 11:25-26
Jesus Christ came to Earth to solve the real crisis facing society today: sin and death. All people are going to die and because we have chosen to sin, we have chosen to violate God’s laws, we stand guilty in His eyes. And the punishment for that is Hell. This is the sad reality for all people. We are not “gods” and never will be. We are not perfect, but are in fact far from perfection. And no matter what type of esoteric ritual or scientific advancement we achieve, we can never evolve and “elevate” into godhood, nor can we escape our sin and guilt. But fortunately, God in His love for all people, lowered Himself and became human. In order to suffer among us, live with us and most importantly, live the perfect moral human life and offer Himself as a sacrifice to take the punishment all people have earned for their sins. God made things right for us – so that we could have true immortality.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. – John 3:16.
There is eternal life. There is true immortality. And it comes through faith in Jesus Christ. The new believer first receives a born-again spirit and eventually, once the human body (which still has sinful lusts in it) perishes, a new Heavenly body, that will never die. Rather than trying to achieve eternal life aside from God and in rebellion against Him, the Lord welcomes us to simply believe in Him and receive immortality as a gift. The fear of death is natural. And it should worry humanity. But the fate of our souls is a much greater worry. Thanks to God, the ultimate solution already exists.
