Scientists in California have made the first monkey-human embryo, mixing genetic components together in spite of the controversy.
They did the experiment by mixing adult human stem cells into developing monkey embryos to see how the two would combine.
Specifically, a macaque monkey embryo was injected with stem cells at the Salk Institute in San Diego, California.
Human stem cells are able to transform as they are needed, and scientists were studying how they would interact in the creation of a human-monkey chimera.
Why Did The Scientists Create Chimeras?
Officially, this research is being done in organ to study more about how organs grow in order to improve organ transplant procedures and also to learn more about how diseases take place in humans.
The chimera study was headed by Professor Juan Carlos Izpisua Belmonte who was the same man that worked on the first human-pig chimera back in 2017. Belmonte, who has a prestigious career including winning the President William Clinton Career Award in 1997, has decades of experimenting with genes, all under the goal of curing cancer and other diseases.
Belmonte said the monkey research is highly useful and could save lives.
“These chimeric approaches could be really very useful for advancing biomedical research not just at the very earliest stage of life, but also the latest stage of life,” he said.
The experiment took around 20 days, in which the combined embryos were watched for progressions and were destroyed after that time. According to the researchers on the project, the stem cells in the chimeras “survived and integrated with better relative efficiency than in the previous experiments in pig tissue.”
A professor from the welcome trust was on radio 2 earlier talking about chimera monkeys and the ethnics around the research. Knowing that Gates funds it was the scary thing!

What’s the End Goal?
Belmonte himself may be a noble man and dedicated scientist with no ulterior agenda. However ethical concerns are already being pointed out, including by Oxford University’s Director of the Uehiro Center for Practical Ethics, Professor Julian Savulescu who notes that “these embryos were destroyed at 20 days of development but it is only a matter of time before human-nonhuman chimeras are successfully developed, perhaps as a source of organs for humans. That is one of the long-term goals of this research.”
The research “opens Pandora’s box to human-nonhuman chimeras,” Savulescu added.
The fact of the matter is that no technological progress takes place in a vacuum. We are currently in the midst of a global pandemic which supposedly jumped from animals to humans or leaked from a bioweapons lab, and the continuing experimentation and alteration of human life is a dark path to go down.
As more and more excuses are made for experimenting beyond the bounds of what’s ever been considered acceptable, we need to keep in mind that the future being created by globalists and groups like the Chinese Communist Party is truly nightmarish.
China is already using gene-editing CRISPR technology to create supersoldiers without any normal human limitations and the future of a world with strange half-human creatures made in a lab is certainly terrifying.
It’s clear that even if Belmonte and others are doing the experiments purely to help cure disease and advance research, these kinds of creatures could be allowed to survive in the future and be used for far worse reasons, including as a kind of slave class for the globalists in a world with less humans, as the human population begins having a lower and lower fertility rate.
Artificially engineered babies and half-monkey creatures seem like something out of a horror movie, but they’re already possible and will soon likely be taking place as the pace of scientist begins to overtake all common sense.
