Let's take a look at a few recent news articles that have been published over the last little while:

DARPA to develop autonomous drones
DARPA wants to move ... one step closer to drones that work completely autonomously. But not only that, they’d do so in groups that work intelligently together... and protect themsevles in hostile situations.

Bugs adapting to GMO crops
(this article is a little older, but still applies) - An article in the August 29th, 2011 Wall Street Journal reveals that Iowa State University entomologists discovered rootworms that appear to have evolved to resist the GMO corn’s pesticide, at least in four northeast Iowa fields.

Scientists for First Time Create Microbes Containing Man-Made DNA
In a report published Wednesday in Nature, the scientists said they created two additions to the normal genetic code, and then prompted bacteria to incorporate these pieces of man-made DNA with few ill effects.

And now, let's read a bit from the Book of Revelation, in the New Testament, and consider whether we're seeing any similarities, or perhaps foreshadowing here.

Revelation 6
And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see.

2 And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.

3 And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see.

4 And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.

5 And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand.

6 And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.

7 And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see.

8 And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.
