Jeffrey Epstein Hoped To Improve Human Race With His Own DNA
Jeffrey Epstein had a dream of improving the human race with his DNA.
Epstein, who is accused of sex trafficking, confided to scientists and others about his scheme of seeding the human race with his DNA, by impregnating women at his New Mexico ranch, according to four people who are familiar with his idea.
There is no evidence that his plan was ever acted upon, according to The New York Times.
His idea comes after his fascination with, what has become known as, transhumanism.
Transhumanism is the science of improving the human population through technologies like genetic engineering and artificial intelligence. Some scientist have come to agree with this idea of improving the human race through controlled breeding.
The wealthy financier attracted a promising number of scientists, including Nobel Prize-winning physicist Murray Gell-Mann, who discovered the quark, theoretical physicist and best-selling author Stephen Hawking, paleontologist and evolutionary biologist Stephen Jay Gould, neurologist and best-selling author Oliver Sacks, molecular engineer George M. Church, and Frank Wilczek who is an M.I.T theoretical physicist.
Some of the scientists have revealed that Epstein’s money was the reason they were able to work on their projects.
There were scientists who gathered at dinner parties held at Epstein’s Manhattan mansion. He hosted buffet lunches at Harvard’s Program for Evolutionary Dynamics, which he started by donating $6.5 million.
Two award-winning scientists and an adviser to large companies and wealthy individuals revealed that in the early 2000s, Epstein told scientists and businessmen, on multiple occasions, about his New Mexico ranch base where women would be impregnated with his sperm and would give birth to his babies.
Jaron Lanier, an author who is also the co-inventor of virtual reality, claimed that a NASA scientist who spoke to Epstein said that he based his idea for a ranch on accounts of the Repository for Germinal Choice, which was to be stocked with the sperm of Nobel laureates who wanted to strengthen the human gene pool.
Lanier also mentioned that he was under the impression that Epstein was using the dinner parties, where some guests were attractive and intelligent women, to screen candidates to bear his children.
Epstein was charged in July with sexual trafficking of girls as young as 14-years-old.
