Genetic Armageddon (Transhuman: As The Days of Noah Were)
Luke 17:26 And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall
it be also in the days of the Son of man. (27) They did eat, they drank, they

Genesis 6:5-7 And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth …

Matthew 24:37,38 But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,
