Do ancient texts warn about the unnatural era of GMOs?

AncientBibleTextsBarbara Peterson ( makes a plausible case that the perverting of natural plants in the form of the genetically modified seeds and food so common today could  be prophesied in the Bible and other ancient texts.

Even if you’re not a Bible reader or believer, verses 10 and 11 in Isaiah 17, King James Version, will give you a chill considering some of what we see happening today.

Because thou hast forgotten the God of thy salvation, and hast not been mindful of the rock of thy strength, therefore shalt thy plant pleasant plants, and shall set it with strange slips. (Verse 10)

In the day shalt thy make thy plant to grow, and in the morning shalt thy make thy seed to flourish: but the harvest shall be a heap in the day of grief and desperate sorrow. (Verse 11)

Now look at definitions in Strong’s Concordance.

‘Set’ 2232—primary root, to sow, plant, disseminate, bear, conceive seed, yield.

‘Strange’ 2114—primary root, be a foreigner, profane, to commit adultery, come from another place.

‘Slip’ 2156—a twig, vine, branch.

‘Heap’ 5067—a mound, wave, pile.

So…. plants grown appear to flourish, but eventually bring about a harvest that becomes a mound in a day of “grief and desperate sorrow.”  Is it because the laws of nature have been perverted and seeds have been sown with strange/foreign/profane/ vines/slips?

GMOs by definition are inserted with ‘foreign’ genes/DNA. This tinkering with the natural seeds that have sustained life throughout history is not yet understood and  has already produced unintended consequences in fields and animals.

Science, when used for understanding and utilizing the potential in nature for good, is true progress. But have we exceeded nature’s boundaries with GMOs, whose longterm effects on humans and animals are not known (or at least not admitted)?

Are we ‘engineering’ for profits to a few—a harvest of “grief and desperate sorrow” for the rest of us—when it comes to the seeds and food that maintain and perpetuate life?

I know what I think, but you decide for yourself before you shop for packaged and prepared foods that are loaded with GMO chemicals and GMO corn and soy additives.

We still have enough health freedom to NOT choose the Standard American Diet that makes us fat and sick, and cease the outsourcing of meal preparation to corporations!
