On December 16, Facebook account ბიბლიის მორწმუნე ქრისტიანები (Bible Believing Christians) published the post according to which Israel will issue “green passports” to those residents who get “a nanotechnology-based vaccine with the luciferase enzyme” that alters human DNA. The author also notes in the comments section that a swab stick is used not for taking a nasal smear, but for implanting nanotechnology in humans during COVID-19 testing, from where “nanoparticles” enter the brain.
Facebook account ბიბლიის მორწმუნე ქრისტიანები (Bible Believing Christians) refers to the article of newsweek.com as its source. The latter notes that the patients getting vaccinated in Israel will be allowed to move freely in public areas.
The post published by the Facebook account that links “the green passport” to the mark of the beast is conspiratorial. Moreover, the post spreads false information about the luciferase enzyme, RNA and PCR tests. In fact, 1) COVID-19 vaccine does not contain luciferin; 2) RNA-based COVID-19 vaccine cannot alter human genome or DNA; 3) Taking a smear in PCR testing is absolutely safe, because the blood–brain barrier protects the central nervous system from harmful agents.
The first vaccination is expected to start in Israel on December 27. 60,000 people will get vaccinated in the country and all of them will receive “green passports” allowing them to move freely and attend various events without any restrictions. The post published by the Bible Believing Christians manipulatively links Israel’s decision on issuing “green passports” to the coronavirus vaccine and dubs it as “the mark of the beast.”
Newsweek writes in its article that while Israel is the first country to issue a vaccine passport, several countries (including the U.K., Estonia, Italy and Chile) are considering the introduction of immunity passports. “Green passport” will confirm that its holder has been vaccinated; thus, it will lift some restrictions, including mandatory quarantine following exposure to an infected person, and offer access to cultural events and restaurants, according to Israel’s Ministry of Health. Back in April 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) published guidance on “immunity passports” in the context of COVID-19. The detection of antibodies to the SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, could serve as the basis for an “immunity passport” or “risk-free certificate” that would enable individuals to travel or to return to work assuming that they are protected against re-infection for several months.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that the certificates will encourage the process of vaccination and help people return to a normal life.
What is luciferin and is it used in the coronavirus vaccine?
Luciferin is an organic compound that is used in medicine, but its use in the coronavirus vaccine is not confirmed. Myth Detector has already written about it earlier. Enzyme luciferase and its substrate luciferin can be found in various living organisms, such as fireflies and luminous marine and terrestrial microorganisms. Part of the luciferin molecules are charged by the chemical energy released during the enzymatic oxidation of luciferin and the molecules emit light when returning to the ground state.
Lucifer is a Latin word and it means “light bringer” (lux, lucis, – light, and ferre – bring). It is the name of various mythological and religious figures associated with the planet Venus. In Christian religion, Lucifer is called a fallen angel, but it has nothing to do with luciferase enzymes. Luciferase is a light-producing enzyme naturally found in insect fireflies and in luminous microorganisms. Therefore, demonization of an enzyme and ascribing Satanist features to it is absolutely groundless and simply represents part of a conspiracy theory.
Can the coronavirus vaccine alter human genome?
RNA and DNA are both nucleic acids, but there are some key differences in their structures. RNA contains ribonucleic acid and DNA – deoxyribonucleic acid. Moreover, RNA contains Uracil and DNA – nucleotide thymine. Since COVID-19 is an RNA virus, its genetic information is stored in RNA and RNA-based vaccine has been created againstit. Due to the chemical differences between DNA and RNA, one cannot replace the other. Furthermore, RNA has a very short lifespan, being quickly degraded after it has been used to make a protein. Thus, vaccination cannot alter human genome.
Is it possible for nanoparticles to enter the brain when taking a smear with a swab stick?
The claim as if nanoparticles are delivered into the brain when taking a smear during PCR testing is not true. The blood–brain barrier protects the central nervous system from physical damage and harmful agents. In order to pose a threat to human health when taking a smear, the blood-brain barrier should get damaged that is unimaginable in PCR testing, because a swab is inserted only about 2cm into a nostril. A swab stick inserted into the nose would need to break through multiple layers of tissue and drill through a bone and into the blood vessels to reach the blood-brain barrier. Thus, no harmful agents can enter the brain during this procedure.
