One step closer to making me immortal

As I've said before... I will live forever. There is one problem - at the moment it is impossible. Luckily for me the clever scientist guys, even though they are only one hood with eye holes away from being racist, have almost found a way to make it happen.

The Telegraph has reported that they found the gene that controls ageing. In a nutshell, as cells regenerate they do it a little bit worse/wrong each time... leading to ageing. But the crazy scientist guys think that finding this gene:

"is the first step to understanding why people age. Once we have a full understanding we should be able to manipulate it in a manner to influence how someone ages."

So go me! Here is an artists impression of what I will be like in the year 2062.

  1. Hi Andy,

    I see you would like to live forever. In a way we all do. Maybe not physically but after we die our soul will live forever. The question is just where? Heaven or hell?

    I see that on your list of 100+ things that you want to do, you had reading the Bible. The Bible holds the answer to eternal life. Here are a few examples:

    John 3:15 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.

    John 10:28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.

    Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord

    Titus 1:2 In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began;

    1 John 5:11 And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.

    These verses are copied right out of the KJV bible. It is not a religion that brings peace and eternal life but Jesus Christ.

    Find time to read the Bible. Check it of your "To do list" and find those verses that speak of eternal life and how to get it!

    Praying for you.
