Frankenstein was a monster created by a mad scientist who wanted to play God with insufficient skills. While he was successful to a point, later on the monster he created got out of control and turned on him. Genetically Modified Organism is what we would call Frankenstein today - GMO for short.
GMO corn, soy bean, rice, wheat, tomatoes, potatoes and more are all the scientific rage. Part of it is of course a genetically modified organism in seed form can be patented. Can you imagine someone claiming to own a patent on life itself? Well you don't have to imagine that at all. Monsanto is out to own all the food in the world with all patent rights so they can charge whatever they want to farmers who will be unable to grow food the old fashioned way - the natural way.
And thanks to a compliant Congress and FDA, you don't have a way of knowing what you are buying. They do not have to label GMO food as GMO. They don't have to tell you, depriving of the right to choose. How do you read the following article? Is the GMO monster on the loose accidentally or on purpose? If it spreads then the filthy genetic contamination will be everywhere and God's created food plants will all disappear. You know, the one's God planted a long time ago in the Garden of Eden to get the whole thing started.

Bayer Admits GMO Contamination is Out of Control
Greenpeace International, Dec 8, 2009
EXTRACT: Bayer has admitted it has been unable to control the spread of its genetically-engineered organisms despite 'the best practices [to stop contamination]'(1). It shows that all outdoors field trials or commercial growing of GE crops must be stopped before our crops are irreversibly contaminated.------$2 million US dollar verdict against Bayer confirms company's liability for an uncontrollable technology Greenpeace welcomes the United States federal jury ruling on 4 December 2009 that Bayer CropScience LP must pay $2 million US dollars to two Missouri farmers after their rice crop was contaminated with an experimental variety of rice that the company was testing in 2006.This verdict confirms that the responsibility for the consequences of GE (genetic engineering) contamination rests with the company that releases GE crops.Bayer has admitted it has been unable to control the spread of its genetically-engineered organisms despite 'the best practices [to stop contamination]'(1). It shows that all outdoors field trials or commercial growing of GE crops must be stopped before our crops are irreversibly contaminated.A report prepared for Greenpeace International concluded that the total costs incurred throughout the world as a result of the contamination are estimated to range from $741 million to $1.285 billion US dollars.(2) The verdict indicates that Bayer is liable for what could turn out to be a large proportion of these costs, as it awards damages in the first two of more than 1,000 currently pending lawsuits. The decision must be used to support all claims for losses incurred by other US farmers whose crops have suffered from GE contamination.(1) Bayers Defense lawyer, Mark Ferguson as reported in Harris, A. 2009.Bayer Blamed at Trial for Crops 'Contaminated' by Modified Rice.
