    Yes, if there WAS a pristine, God-intended origin of wheat and barley that the Creator intended as good, than the creator most probably did NOT intend for wheat to be genetically modified beyond almost all recognition. The archeological wheat is not the wheat of today. The reason that wheat does not physiologically work for many, many people (not just those with Coeliac disease) is because it has been altered so greatly from its original form that it is now toxic for many. Maybe there IS a bit of craze, and MAYbe people have realized that they FEEL better when they do not eat it. I have a dear friend whose son recently had a psychotic breakdown in his early 20’s. Out of desperation, she took him to a talented kinesiologist and he tested that WHEAT was toxic to his system. He was able to identify the TOXINS in wheat as the problem, and NOT the gluten itself. Remember, it is NOT just about the gluten, but about the mycotoxins and insecticide build up in the soil. Arsenic anyone?

    Unfortunately, this sacred gift has been changed too much. So who does it belong to now?

    Also, I would love to hear what you think of the genetically modified Salmon that is going to be scavenging our seas and rivers soon. Is that “good” like the fishes’ part of the fishes and the loaves? Did God intend for us to become mutants like the mutants we are eating?

    I thought this was interesting, from Leviticus, 19:19.

    19 ” ‘Keep my decrees.
    ” ‘Do not mate different kinds of animals. (i.e., using genes from different fishes to create a new fish)
    ” ‘Do not plant your field with two kinds of seed. (Hybrids?)
    ” ‘Do not wear clothing woven of two kinds of material.
