Good Morning from your farmer,
Beth & I hope you enjoyed your Thanksgiving - and turkey if you purchased one our our pastured turkeys. For our family the turkey did not disappoint. I spatchcocked (removed the backbone) so the turkey would lay flat. Beth then brined it for a day before smoking. It turned out tasty and juicy.
Before our Thanksgiving meal each of us shared something we were thankful for. Beth's sister Debra shared the following:
Speaking for our family, we are very blessed of The Lord and grateful for all He has done for us.
We live in a world that is evil and where truth is elusive. Our response depends on the "lens" we choose to look through.
This week I watched a message by Ken Ham who is the CEO of Answers In Genesis, The Creation Museum, and The Ark Museum in KY. The issue boils down to which foundation do you believe? Biblical or Secular (man). We need a strong foundation to withstand evil and not be distracted from the "firm foundation" which is Christ our Lord. One of my favorite verses is 1 Corth. 2:13 where Paul writes: "Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Spirit teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual." Here is the link if you would like to watch his message. Ken's message
Around Hattiesburg folks are displaying signs reading "No Solar Farms". I have been approached about adding solar panels to our pastures and quickly said no thanks - not interested. However, there are two farms within 3-4 miles of me that have agreed to install solar panels.
This week in Joel Salatin's Musings From A Lunatic Farmer he shared some facts about the effects of solar panels as well as the thousands of acres of farmland that is being covered by these solar farms - thus taking valuable land out of FOOD production. You can read his article here.

21ST CENTURY DR. FRANKENSTEINS
Bayer’s SynBio Spokesman George Church
If you want to get really freaked out by what Bayer might do with synthetic biology, watch this Leaps by Bayer video, “The Culture of Synthetic Biology and Moonshots for a Better World at SynBioBeta 2020,” where George Church makes the case for genetically engineering humans to be resistant to viruses (a Chinese scientist has already engineered HIV-resistant human twins, born in 2018), engineering Frankenfoods for life (sweatshops?) on Mars, and growing human babies in artificial wombs.
In a decade-old talk, “George Church on the Future of Human Genomics and Synthetic Biology,” he explained that “We’re getting to the point … where we can not only manipulate human genomes, but we can manipulate human brains.”
Frighteningly, George Church is a Pentagon/CIA contractor funded by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA)’s Safe Genes project on gene-editing weapons and its Biology is Technology (BiT) project that covers everything “from programmable microbes to human-machine symbiosis,” as well as under the Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Agency (IARPA)’s Machine Intelligence from Cortical Networks (MICrONS) project to “barcode” the brain and its Functional Genomic and Computational Assessment of Threats (Fun GCAT) project to categorize DNA by “how dangerous” it is.
What are they trying to do? Build a real-life Matrix?
