‘Roundup Ready’ Humans?

‘Roundup Ready’ Humans?

What the heck does that mean?

One of my favorite parts of doing a blog is getting reader comments.

It definitely makes the blogging experience more fun and keeps me on my toes. I also learn a lot. The more discussion there is, the better.Roundup Ready

One of the most frequent commenters is Brian Sanderson, who has a long track record of outside the box comments that spark discussion.

I would say that one of Brian’s most explosive comments came yesterday on the topic of human genetic modification.

It seems to me that it is just a matter of time before technologies get to the point where genetically modified humans (GMH) can be “created”.  Do we really want to go there?  

It certainly opens up some interesting new possibilities for warfare.  Imagine the creation of  a strain of “roundup ready humans” that are resistant to some secretly created pathogen that is fatal to “natural” humans…  

This is a doomsday machine without mutually assured destruction! Makes Dr Strangelove and Planet of the Apes look lame.  

It would make a great movie script — let’s just leave it at that.


For those of you who may not know, ‘Rounp Ready’ is a brand from the company Monsanto. It is a type of GMO seed/plant that is engineered to be resistant to the Monsanto herbicide RoundUp or glyphosate. The idea is a farmer sprays a field of RoundUp Ready plants and only the weeds die.

So Brian’s comment suggests a possible future, perhaps to be taken in a satirical way, in which a weapon could be sprayed onto a battlefield and GMO soldiers might survive, while the enemies all croak.

Creepy stuff.

Brian, you can expect a call from DARPA perhaps offering you a grant and, ahem, maybe the NSA for other reasons…

  1. This may be a reality soon. The coronavirus vaccine is going to be a new RNA vaccine. RNA vaccines use a different approach that takes advantage of the process that cells use to make proteins: cells use DNA as the template to make messenger RNA (mRNA) molecules, which are then translated to build proteins.

    Bill Gates and crew have stated they want everyone on earth vaccinated. It’s possible those that refuse the vaccine may be vulnerable to chemical attacks or even DNA alterations from new tech like 5G. (likely to be reported as a second or third virus wave)

  2. Not so bad to get a grant from DARPA….DAPRA grants are the hardest funding to get from the federal government
