2050 - and Immortality is Within Our Grasp

Britain's leading thinker on the future, Ian Pearson, head of the futurology unit at BT, believes that today's youngsters may never have to die. He believes this will be accomplished by manipulating DNA like electronic circuit boards to achieving the desired outcome in our lives.

Human Immortality: A Scientific Reality?

"The cause of human aging is now being understood."

I found an interesting article about a scientific approach to finding the "cure" for aging; with the hope of achieving immortality.

Here is the link to this interesting article.

Another interesting item I found in the article:

"A team of South Korean scientists on Sunday claimed to have created a "cellular fountain of youth," or a small molecule, which enables human cells to avoid aging and dying.

The team, headed by Prof. Kim Tae-kook at the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology, argued the newly-synthesized molecule, named CGK733, can even make cells younger."

When Fact is Stranger than Fiction

Throughout my life, I have seen and experienced things that far overshadowed the science fiction I read growing up in America's Midwest. Still nothing really prepared me for the day I successfully located and made contact with a man who's real age is nearly 2,800 years old.

As crazy as this sounds, I now have to believe that there are people living among us who are 500 years of age, and older. They have blended themselves within our civilization so well, it is nearly impossible to distinguish them from a typical senior citizen.

The gentleman that I have made friends with has spent most of his life in the various countries that surround the Mediterranean Sea. And yes, he was living near Jerusalem around 2,000 years ago.

How I found this amazing man is a long story that would take a book just to describe all of the details. For now, let me just say that I used my unique researching skills to find this even more unique man.

I do not know if it is even possible to prove he is older than 150 years. Certainly this has helped him fit in with the rest of us. However, as I spoke with him, the eyewitness accounts of 2,800 years of history make it difficult to believe he is anything but an immortal.

The stories he has to tell are too incredible to ignore. So I am writing them down and am planning to release them in a book someday soon. In the meantime, I will try to figure out what evidence I can find that would prove this man is a real immortal.

Obviously there is no such thing as a Roman Empire Chariot Driver's License or an Israeli Passport signed by King David to rely on for absolute proof. He has a few trinkets older than 2,000 year. And I know, if the opportunity presents itself, I could try to get a blood or saliva sample to perform a DNA test on. However, I could use some advise as to what other forms of evidence I could use to prove someone really is over 150 years old.
I am also asking everyone for questions that I should ask this incredible man about his past. Even if I cannot prove his true age, I certainly can present his eyewitness observations of the birth of our western civilization. And the stories he has told me so far are all priceless. Soon I will be able to share some of them to all of you.
