"We see, in many a land, the proudest dynasties and tyrannies still crushing, with their mountain weight, every free motion of the Consciences and hearts of men. We see, on the other hand, the truest heroism for the right and the greatest devotion to the Truth in hearts that God has touched. We have a work to do, as great as our forefathers and, perhaps, far greater. The enemies of Truth are more numerous and subtle than ever and the needs of the Church are greater than at any preceding time. If we are not debtors to the present, then men were never debtors to their age and their time. Brethren, we are debtors to the hour in which we live. Oh, that we might stamp it with Truth and that God might help us to impress upon its wings some proof that it has not flown by neglected and unheeded." -- C.H. Spurgeon . . .

A TTUF REVIEW of JURASSIC WORLD: DOMINION – Conclusion To A Sensational Saga

~ By James Fire

I distinctly remember going to the school library in the 3rd grade and picking out a book about dragons; many of them looked nothing like your typical dragon, but as I continued to turn the pages, to my startled amazement, this wasn’t a fantasy book. It was a book on dinosaurs (which were referred to as “dragons” well into the late 19th and early 20th century. It was in 1842 that Sir Richard Owen, Britain’s leading paleontologist coined the word dinosaur meaning “terrible lizard”) – these were real creatures that once roamed the Earth (according to the book, over millions of years ago)!?

Thus began my love for these powerful beasts of mythic proportions who were a testament to the power of life!

Dinosaurs seem to always charm the hearts of children; I know they did mine! I would tune in to television shows and movies in the 60’s and 70’s that had dinosaurs in them, but they were rather cheesy looking. Puppets or Claymation models that moved stiffly and unrealistically – still, they were as much fun to watch as that man in a rubber suit that trashed the miniature city of Tokyo in the many iterations of the Japanese films of Godzilla.

It wasn’t until 1993 however that the novel Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton* hit the silver screen to enthrall and enchant us all. These animatronic beasties looked (and sounded!) very real indeed!
*Dr. Crichton was a medical doctor that decided not to go into practice, but turned his attention to writing, and wrote The Andromeda Strain. Timeline, Sphere, Pirate Latitudes, Congo – over two dozen novels in all including JURASSIC PARK (JP)).
The story line was genius: DNA from the blood of dinosaurs was harvested by scientists who procured it from amber-encased mosquitoes which feasted on their reptilian blood way back in the day. They mapped out the genome and filled in ‘the empty spaces’ where gene chains were broken with similar DNA from present day frogs and reptiles, and through the miracles of modern science – voila! A new age of dinosaurs was born!

But as Dr. Ian Malcolm (played by Jeff Goldblum) said with almost prophetic portent: “…your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could, they didn’t stop to think if they should”.

That warning has been sounded in replete fashion, both in the films and in the real world regarding the use of technology, which can be either a benefit or a bane (we’ll touch on this later in this article)!

Let’s get a synopsis of this marvelous film of JURASSIC WORLD (JW): Dominion first and then go from there…

SPOILER ALERT!!! [Note: content in brackets are my own statements, and or editing]

Four years after JW 2, dinosaurs having been set loose from captivity, humans have had to adjust to their presence. Many people have died, and while many think the prehistoric animals should be all killed, others [chose to exploit these creatures in] the black market, illegally sold for exorbitant prices and distributed.

[Meanwhile] the government hands the reins to BioSyn Genetics, a company led by Lewis Dodgson [played by Campbell Scott] who promised to keep the dinosaurs at a sanctuary in Italy's Dolomite Mountains to further research them for pharmaceutical purposes. News [media reveals] that Maisie Lockwood (played by Isabella Sermon, [granddaughter to Dr. Lockwood, himself worked with John Hammond to bring Jurassic Park (JP) to life] has disappeared after her true nature as a clone was made public (emphasis mine).

Somewhere near the Sierra mountains in Nevada, Owen Grady (Chris Pratt) comes home to a cabin [after wrangling some dino’s] that he shares with Claire [who are now Maisie’s adoptive parents]. They try to keep her hidden for fear that someone is after her… mercenaries led by Rainn Delacourt (Scott Haze) are spying on Maisie, their target.

Not far from the cabin, Blue the raptor has asexually reproduced offspring (who Maisie later names “Beta” [Monitor lizards supposedly can reproduce offspring asexually as can Komodo lizards. DNA from these lizards was used to fill in the genetic gaps in this film]).

In Texas, two children are chased by an enormous swarm of [prehistoric] giant locusts. Paleobotanist Ellie Sattler (Laura Dern) investigates the farm where the locusts attacked and ate up all the crops except for those planted with BioSyn seed (emphasis mine).

Ellie reunites with Dr. Alan Grant (Sam Neill), bringing a captured locust to him, explains the situation, expressing her fears that if they spread, they may wreck the [global] food chain. Alan and Ellie figure that BioSyn [is creating an audaciously illegal monopoly on food for financial profit – we’ll address this point for sure!].

Ellie asks Alan to help her get DNA from another locust at the BioSyn sanctuary [to verify the source of these destructive insects] and despite showing some hesitance, Alan ultimately agrees to join. [Luckily she] was already invited to BioSyn by one of their employees: the pair’s old friend, Dr. Ian Malcolm [their in-house philosopher (played by Jeff Goldblum)].

The mercenaries soon capture Beta, Blue’s young velociraptor and Maisie. Owen [and] Claire promptly chased after them – but they escape. Claire … contacts a young friend [seen in the previous film], Franklin (played by Justice Smith), who now works for the CIA. He gives them information on Delacourt and connects them with Owen's former coworker at Jurassic World (JW), Barry Sembene, (played by Omar Sy) who works for French Intelligence, [and together, chase after] the mercenaries.

Alan and Ellie arrive at the sanctuary, meet Ramsay Cole (Mamoudou Athie), BioSyn's Head of Communications, and Lewis Dodgson (played by Campbell Scott), who promises they are working on something revolutionary and groundbreaking.

Alan and Ellie find Dr. Ian Malcolm who discreetly tells Ellie that the locusts are indeed part of a sinister scheme by BioSyn. Meanwhile, Dodgson talks with Dr. Henry Wu (BD Wong, [that played this role since JP 1]), who has become remorseful of his actions in helping to keep these experiments going, seeing the [destructive] super-locusts growing at an alarming rate.

In Malta, Sonoya Santos (Dichen Lachman) an associate of Dodgson's, informs him that Maisie and Beta have been transported to BioSyn HQ. Owen and Claire also arrive, reunite with Barry, [who then] brings them to a black market dinosaur ring. Claire encounters Kayla Watts (DeWanda Wise), a pilot who flies for the vendors. She warns Claire [about being there] … but eventually agrees to help her find Maisie.

Owen and Claire learn that Maisie arrived at BioSyn HQ where she listens to Dr. Wu explain that she is a clone of Charlotte's, [but] she is also her birth mother [a virgin birth?]. Charlotte suffered from a genetic disease, but she managed to alter Maisie's DNA to remove all traces of the disease. Wu hopes that by studying Maisie's DNA, he can reverse the locust outbreak by altering their DNA.

Alan and Ellie sneak into BioSyn’s locust’s containment room to get a DNA sample. Dodgson [finds out] Maisie escaped with Beta and sounds the alarm. She stumbles upon Alan and Ellie and recognizes the famous pair. [Together] they flee, are found by Ramsay who [confesses that] BioSyn's work is unethical and sends them all away in a monorail to safety.

In the air, Kayla's plane [a Fairchild C-119 Flying Boxcar] is attacked by a real Quetzalcoatlus [a feathery winged dinosaur nearly half as big as Kayla’s aircraft!], forcing Claire to eject and fall into some trees after they rip her parachute. Owen and Kayla crash into a nearby ice lake but make it across just in time [escaping another dino] and head off to relocate [and find] Claire.

Alan, Ellie, and Maisie are making their way through caverns and attacked by dinosaurs, prompting them to run until they make it outside. Meanwhile, Ian [is discovered by] Dodgson who learns he helped expose BioSyn’s work to his friends and fires him, but Ian works with Ramsay and gets back to his old friends. Dodgson then sets fire to the locust lab to destroy incriminating evidence. Alan, Ellie, Ian, and Maisie [run into] Owen, Claire, and Kayla, reuniting [them] with Maisie. The old cast together with the new at last!

While the heroes work on an escape plan, BioSyn starts to burn to the ground, forcing the employees to flee. Dodgson attempts to make off with his work in the monorail, but is cornered by a trio of Dilophosaurus, who make a meal out of him. Beta [and Dr. Wu are found, and the doctor] has figured out how to alter the locusts' DNA to stop the spread. Just as the group prepares their leave, the Giganotosaurus reappears, but is then caught between the T-Rex and a Therizinosaurus. The humans flee [the scene].

Upon returning to safety, Alan and Ellie rekindle their romance and later head to Washington DC to testify against BioSyn. Wu's work is a success and stops the locust spread. Owen, Claire, and Maisie return home and reunite Beta with her mother, Blue. Before retreating back into the forest, Blue shares one last look with Owen and [a] voiceover proclaims that dinosaurs and humans "must adapt in order to co-exist".

~ the above synopsis based on the IMDB web article.

Jurassic World brought new life to this series in more than one way; it displayed a great deal of CGI effects and blended them seamlessly with animatronic tech that was used almost exclusively in the original Jurassic Park series. While the premise was somewhat cookie cutter to the original trilogy, the new cast and well-paced action by the directors J.A. Bayona (JW 2) and Colin Trevorrow (JW 1,3) made the latter trilogy just as much a real funfest, with lots of scary, white-knuckled intensity as we saw in JP 1,2 and 3.

One of the objectives of the special effects team is to make the CGI so convincing, that the audience would be unable to distinguish between these fantastical images and real life objects. Quite impressive technology is being used towards that end.
But what if such CGI magic were used in say, a nightly news report in a concocted ‘story’ of the fictitious sort – but played out so realistically that the public believes the lies?
Such would be a very powerful tool in the hands of the globalists! - - something to consider!

The film also brought new life in the actual story line. JW opened it’s theme park on Isla Nublar off the coast of Costa Rica and enjoyed instant success with dinosaurs retrieved from the original JP theme park, but they also produced more via the same genetic magic as used previously.
Yet even dinosaurs could get boring after a while – so with a genetic milkshake, new, never before seen kinds were created from various species, namely the Indominus Rex of JW 1 and the Indoraptor of JW2.

By the time we come to JW 3, BioSyn technicians were “more evolved” than that, and didn’t violate genetic codes in that way, but as we later found out, the villain of the story Dodgson was involved in the creation of those prehistoric super locusts that ate up everything in their sight – except for crop grown from BioSyn seed!

The films get us viewers accustomed to the idea of genetically reproduced dino’s, and in JW 3, the idea of a cloned human being (via parthenogenesis) – Maisie, who was virgin born (she had no father; she was replicated from the egg of her mother!

Genetic experimentation has played a dangerous game in reality (no other science posed such dangers at their beginnings as has this particular field of study). The inadvertent (or perhaps, intentional?) creation of unknown diseases for which we have no defense, could and probably will emerge as a result of such experimentation.

This is to say nothing of the replete mantra regarding dinosaurs that “evolved over 35 million years ago” which reinforces the idea of evolution as a scientific fact, when in point of fact, it’s a very poorly posited theory.
For information on this, check out Russ Miller* (Christian creationist) and his website. Also the Evolution Handbook which is chock-full of useful information to expose evolution for what it is: the greatest hoax of the 20th century.
*See the TTUF Interview with Russ Miller!

The creation and birth of Maisie is accredited to the miracle of science, and by this means downplays the virgin birth of Christ (which was definitely a GOD-ordained miracle by any measure (See ISAIAH 7:10-14).
GOD essentially invites king Ahaz to ask for a sign and “the skies the limit” – no request would be considered too big; in feigned piety Ahaz refuses “to tempt the LORD” which only exasperates Him, so GOD Himself provides the parameters – a virgin shall conceive and bring forth a Son, whose name is Immanuel. Some so-called Bible scholars insist that “virgin” in this passage simply means “maiden” not “virgin”.

Yet a maiden giving birth would hardly be a miracle, much less a sign from GOD to perform the impossible. In the case of Mary and this prophecy concerning her, the Hebrew word “alma” can mean both virgin and maiden (young woman) and she is both!

The global company BioSyn is the producer of all sorts of agricultural and genetic wonders, and while this company is fictitious, it has a real world counterpart: Monsanto, a subsidy of the Bayer Corporation, which bought Monsanto in 2018 for a tidy sum of $63 billion! If you know anything about the roots of the Bayer corporation, this should disturb you.

Many people know Roundup, the weed killer chemical produced by Monsanto, which after its introduction and use was discovered to cause non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (certain chemicals when introduced into the body excited pre-cancer cells into full blown lymphoma – which certain whistle-blowers claim that the manufacturers knew all along) and cost the company over $10 billion in lawsuits.

What many people don’t know is that Monsanto produces seed that when grown into produce create seedless crops. The company holds about 35% and rising sales on grain and seed, and as this trend continues, they could conceivably hold a monopoly on the agricultural industry. If that happens, the only seed available for sowing crops would come exclusively from Monsanto! Not a viable outcome!

They also produce GMO that Europe hasn’t exactly banned for human consumption but has in place very strict rules that only maize has met for safe consumption – the USA has no such legislation banning GMO’s.

According to the National Library of Medicine, consumption of GMO’s may cause some common toxic effects such as hepatic, pancreatic, renal, or reproductive effects and may alter the hematological, biochemical, and immunological parameters [in human beings].

I found it uncanny that these BioSyn genetically produced super-locusts ravaged every crop except for those grown with BioSyn seed. To see a correlation with Monsanto isn’t too difficult. If BioSyn was successful in their conspiracy for global control of the food supply, such objectives are seen already in Monsanto which is doing a fine job towards that goal.

As was revealed in the synopsis, Maisie’s mother contracted a disease that she would have passed on to her cloned “daughter” if she hadn’t altered her DNA. Dr. Wu also understands that to combat the plague of super-locusts, he too would have to discover how to altar the DNA of these insects to arrest the plague. So altering the DNA would save crops, therefore lives, just as Maisie’s mother saved her!

There are reports by certain whistle-blowers stating that the vaccine used (and subsequent boosters) to slow down and hopefully arrest the spread of the virus (that caused the entire globe to shut down in 2020) actually contains genetic information via mRNA to alter human DNA to such a degree as to make the immune system impervious to the virus. In all actuality, the vaccine may weaken the human immune system, making people dependent on vaccines rather than their own Divinely created immunological properties.

There is the message in this film then that suggests the altering of DNA is a good thing – if it can save lives.
But how much tinkering in order to transform genetic information encoded in our DNA can occur without changing what it means to be human? A valid question that should be asked if other concocted viruses are released into the public sector that prove even deadlier than what we saw in the plandemic.

What if a vaccine is created that’s even more invasive, that degrades humanity on a biological level that may prove detrimental as it progresses through the body – perhaps causing such mutations as to render people, and, or their offspring infertile (?!) or other consequences heretofore unknown?

The film ends happily – Maisie is free to live out her life with her loving, adopted parents Owen and Claire, Drs. Grant and Sattler are about to enter Congress and alert the government that their trust in BioSyn was tragically misplaced. Dr. Wu discovered the means to arrest the locust plague.

And dinosaurs still roam the Earth among humans – the final message in the film:
“We act like we’re along here but we’re not. We’re part of a fragile system made up of all living things. If we’re going to survive, we’ll have to trust each other, depend on each other. Coexist.”
We’re told that we live in a fragile world – that something like a few degrees change globally would spell cosmic doom. That’s what computer models said anyway – but while computer models for weather on the short term can prove useful and accurate within reasonable parameters, to gauge the future several decades ahead by such means has proven woefully inaccurate.

Have you noticed that “global warming” was dropped and replaced with “climate change”? The former appellation didn’t stick too well when the last three conferences on the matter were cancelled due to snow! Yet that’s what climate does – it changes! It isn’t the end of the world (well, it is, but not for such reasons as these!).

There is a lot of talk about “carbon footprints” as if carbon dioxide is the big baddie – but don’t we understand that just as oxygen is for us, carbon dioxide is for plant life? And with all of the industrialization that’s going on – spewing out CO2 – this hasn’t done much damage to plant life, has it? We can attribute other things for such damage (chemtrails anyone?).

I think GOD knew what He was doing when He created our world – making it hardy and resilient enough to take a pummeling from man’s influences (which are not always so kind).

I do however earnestly believe that we should take better care of our planet; but those with an Agenda to protect our environment issue plans to curtail American economic growth by imposing such laws that would strangle our already weak economy. Incidentally, those same folks that want to implement that Agenda? They’re the same ones responsible for the conditions that they complain about (not that they would ever admit to such!).

Have you ever heard of The Declaration of Interdependence?

It’s a document that encourages globalism, and the final quote from the film suggests that if we are going to survive, we’re going to have to trust each other. Fine – but globalists are the last people I’d be willing to trust, and if you know anything about The Great Reset, you’d likely agree with me! I would rather trust the independent nation states rather than a globalist single state system.

If you throw a baseball at a single pane window, you have to replace the entire window. If you throw that baseball at a multiple pane window, you need only replace the panes that suffered damage – a much less expensive prospect.

If we divest ourselves of our national sovereignty and become vassals of a totalitarian super-state that cares nothing for the rights of the individual, but solely the good of the collective (with special emphasis on those at the top of that particular food chain), we’ll have no way of abandoning that system, since they’ll have total control – unless you have the means of terraforming the Moon and set up a civilization there!

If humans can find a way to coexist with such beasts as dinosaurs, then surely we should be able to find a way to adapt in order to coexist with other human beings right?

It’s a rather popular notion today, not to mention bumper sticker – “coexist”. It’s a foregone conclusion that we all do coexist in this world. The idea behind this is to coexist in harmonious peace.

How do we acquire that?! By dialoging, consensus, by finding a mutually beneficial middle ground – by compromise. It’s been said that “compromise happens when no one gets everything they want”. It means sacrificing some of your own objectives, positions, beliefs, convictions, and others do likewise.

~ Can we as Christians coexist with other religions on this basis? No – because we’ve made some exclusive truth claims, what we call the fundamentals of the faith, that cannot be compromised or sacrificed, because they are the very heart of our living faith. Other religions of the world will be (and in some measure already are) making concessions in order to establish a unifying coexistence. We cannot. We must not!

~ Can we coexist with other political/economic systems of the world on that same basis of harmonious unity? No – because national sovereignty with distinctions that value freedom and individual rights cannot blend with Socialism, much less Communism (sorry China, North Korea!).
As a Constitutional Republic we are actually forbidden to make treaties with other nations that would compromise this founding document – and yet we have done so, agreeing to more UN Resolutions than you could shake a stick at – leading the American “sheeple” down the democratic road of destruction while gutting the US Constitution of its substance.

If dinosaurs and human couldn’t adapt and coexist, then one of the two species – perhaps both couldn’t survive. So perhaps the final message of this film and of the entire saga is “adapt, or die; or evolve or perish”?

This is something those of the New Age/Spirituality Movement has been saying for quite some time!

Those adherents of old, archaic belief systems and dusty books of antiquated religion must learn to let go of such notions and evolve in their understanding that there is no distinction between GOD and creation. All is GOD, including we ourselves – and those who don’t adapt, will be taken out of this world! They teach this!

But we have made our decision to follow Christ and His Truth – the only Truth – and become transformed by the renewing of our minds, and not be conformed to this world or its New Age/Old Lie dogmas (ROM 12:1-2)!

And we shall be thriving in GOD’s eternal kingdom long, long after every other kingdom of this world goes extinct, with not so much as even dust to testify of their existence!
