Accused sex-trafficker Jeffrey Epstein wanted to improve the human population by impregnating women with his DNA.
Convicted pedophile and accused sex-trafficker Jeffrey Epstein hoped to seed the human race with his DNA by impregnating women at his vast New Mexico ranch, according to a report in the New York Times.
Mr. Epstein over the years confided to scientists and others about his scheme, according to four people familiar with his thinking, although there is no evidence that it ever came to fruition.
Mr. Epstein’s vision reflected his longstanding fascination with what has become known as transhumanism: the science of improving the human population through technologies like genetic engineering and artificial intelligence. Critics have likened transhumanism to a modern-day version of eugenics, the discredited field of improving the human race through controlled breeding.
On Wednesday, Epstein was briefly back in federal court to discuss a possible trial date, which may not happen until next June at the earliest, according to NBC 4 New York.
According to reports, Epstein showed no signs of the injuries he purportedly sustained last week in his jail cell.
