Avi Ben-Abraham, a “genius” scientist who has relentlessly worked to find a cure for AIDS, also wanted to “clone Jesus Christ from DNA fragments extracted from the Shroud of Turin.”
In a lengthy Chicago Tribune article, Ben-Abraham discussed his dream of cloning the first human being, who happens to be the Christian messiah, Jesus Christ:
“This work must be done by the best minds in the world,” he told reporters in March. “I am one of them.”
Ben-Abraham, who has claimed since his days as a medical student in Italy to have high-level contacts within the Vatican, says that several senior officials of the Roman Catholic Church support human cloning despite the church’s public stand against it. Their hope, he once told a George Washington University symposium, is to clone Jesus Christ from DNA fragments extracted from the Shroud of Turin.
Although the Vatican declined to comment on Ben-Abraham’s assertions, and Israeli law forbids such experiments, Ben-Abraham claimed many influential figures in the holy land privately support human cloning.

His reasons for wanting to clone Jesus are unknown, but some have speculated Ben-Abraham, along with other nefarious individuals / organizations, would like to reenact Christ’s crucifixion, which took place nearly 2,000 years ago.
If true, the consequences of doing such an extreme and blasphemous deed could prove disastrous.
