    DescriptionIn every generation, when dangers gather, there is a group of men and women courageous enough to confront evil and inform the populace.Sometimes unpleasant truths need to be presented; most of us would rather stand back and kick a toe in the dirt. You know, let someone else do it. Someone else is courageous enough to tell us the truth. Tom Horn & Friends research, publish, and speak about some of the most important topics of our time. Pandemonium?'s Engine is the vehicle through which Tom and an elite team of commentators are informing a still-sleeping public about radical changes coming to our culture very soon.In particular, the technological advances that have brought us to the doorstep of life-altering realities are such that the man-on-the-street is struggling to make sense of our world. The book you are about to read is a landmark offering, making such issues as transhumanism compelling reading. A shadowy world of intrigue, power-grabs, and seismic changes in daily life is the stuff of sci-fi movies. Yet the authors contributing to Pandemonium?'s Engine show us in disturbing detail that these mind-blowing technologies are quite real.For example, Cris D. Putnam writes in Christian Transhumanism: Pandemonium?'s Latest Ploy: Transhumanism is a transnational technocratic trend that promises to break through human biological limitations by radically redesigning humanity. Sound like a campy Star Trek episode, or a movie plot from Stanley Kubrick?As a matter of fact, they are, but rooted in present reality. Change agents in our world are working feverishly to harness the powers of human ingenuity, to wreak havoc on our way of life. Chuck Missler writes in Pandora?'s Box for the 21st Century? The Sorcerer?'s Apprentice that the seductiveness of medical advances mask a diabolical agenda. For example, he mentions that the drive to, among other things, develop receptors that could impinge the constriction of blood vessels and thus the scourge of hypertension is a source of optimism. As are drugs that inhibit damage from brain trauma, or genetic research that could cure diabetes.But Chuck knows that some researchers would trample over ethical boundaries and move past such positive research into frontiers humans were not meant to go.Frederick Meekins chapter, Examples of Transhumanism in Popular Culture identifies how we have been brought along to accept technologies. We ve been conditioned, by popular television series like Star Trek, and films like Spiderman, to subtly be prepared for radical, sweeping tampering with the human mind and body.John McTernan writes about embodied intelligence robots, biocomputers, and other space-age technologies many of us have made the mistake of believing lie in the realm of fiction. Providing perspective is Noah Hutchings, who traces advances in technology from the time of another Noah, to the present time.All these authors, and several more, provide a searing report on just how ambitious the builders of the New Babel really are. Pandemonium?'s Engine will stun you.That?'s good. You need to wake up. History shows that those who make reasonable preparations are much better equipped to deal with colossal changes than those who prefer to fully trust their handlers.I well remember the days when my uncle was on the ground floor of computer technology, tinkering with those machines the size of refrigerators. I remember reading George Orwell?'s 1984 and laughing that such a far-in-the-future could actually arrive. We are well past 1984, figuratively and literally. Pandemonium?'s Engine will show you just how far past. Read and prepare.
