AMERICANS ONLINE: Google Futurist Predicts That Most Humans Will Be Cyborgs By 2030

In a recent interview, famous futurologist and transhumanist Ray Kurzweil predicted that humans would become technological “hybrids”, or more accurately, cyborgs. At the Exponential Finance conference in New York on Wednesday, Kurzweil told an audience that our brains would be directly connected to “the cloud” in the 2030s, making us technological human hybrids.

“Our thinking then will be a hybrid of biological and non-biological thinking. We’ll be able to extend our limitations and think in the cloud. We’re going to put gateways to the cloud in our brains, We’re going to gradually merge and enhance ourselves. In my view, that’s the nature of being human – we transcend our limitations,” he said.

Kurzweil is known to make radical predictions like this, but many times he is actually correct.  In 1990, he predicted that robots would beat humans at chess by 1998, an accomplishment made by IBM’s Deep Blue, against Garry Kasparov, in 1997.

Bill Gates has called Kurzweil “the best person I know at predicting the future of artificial intelligence”, and that may be why he was scooped up by Google in recent years and given a blank check to conduct his studies.

Last year, Kurzweil predicted that robots will be smarter than humans by the year 2029. Not only that but he also predicts that by 2045, computers will be a billion times more powerful than all of the human brains on Earth. According to him human beings will also become immortal in the year 2045.

Warning Graphic Images: THREE CONFIRMED DEAD AFTER POLICE REPORTEDLY ATTACKED WHEN THEY INTERVENED IN BIZZARE RELIGIOUS CULT ACTIVITY

Three Confirmed Dead After Police Reportedly Attacked When They Intervened In Bizzare Religious Cult Activity
At least three people are dead after a member of what’s believed to be a religious cult in Montego Bay, St. James opened fire on the police on Albion Road in the parish.

It’s understood that the police acted on intelligence that the cult were performing human sacrifice rituals and visited the location.

When the police attempted to enter the premises they were reportedly met with gunfire from a member of the cult.

A member of the cult was shot during the confrontation and succumbed.

Two other people were also found dead. One reportedly appears to have had their throat cut.

An investigation is underway into the circumstances of the demise of the two other people who were discovered dead.

It’s understood that members of the religious cult were told to attend worship today dressed in all white ahead of what senior members of the cult told them was the imminent arrival of ‘the ark’.

At least one senior member of the religious cult reportedly told the congregation that he’s God.

The location has now been designated a crime scene as Police investigations continue.

Medicinal Cannibalism and the Power of Implicit Bias

The prevalence of corpse medicine in early modern Europe.

Prepare yourself for a history of Europe that you’ve probably never heard.

In the words of historian Richard Sugg, “For well over two hundred years in early-modern Europe, the rich and the poor, the educated and the illiterate all participated in cannibalism on a more or less routine basis.”

Pharmaceutical products were commonly created from blood, flesh, fat, and bone. Mummy powder was considered a powerful medicinal substance. In some countries, executioners sold convicts’ skin, teeth, hair, and skulls, which led some apothecaries to complain that their prices were being undercut.

This is all very gruesome to modern readers, and it seems strange to say the least. So, why was corpse medicine so pervasive, and what were its moral and ethical limits?

The Rise of Corpse Medicine

As Sugg points out, there were very few instances of medicinal cannibalism before the fifteenth century, but shortly after, physicians started seeking remedies to human ailments within other human bodies.

The sixteenth-century German-Swiss physician Paracelsus argued that it was beneficial to drink fresh blood because it contained vitality. Human flesh was typically prepared as a powder, and it was considered useful for bruising, bleeding, inflammation, fever, or diarrhea. Powdered skull was used to combat epilepsy and other head-oriented afflictions. In other words, pieces of the human body were used to cure a wide range of ailments.

In the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, the term “mummy” referred not only to ancient embalmed corpses but to any medicine made from a human source. According to scholar Louise Noble, “The most highly prized mummy was that from a fresh corpse, preferably a youth who had died a sudden and violent death, because of the widespread belief that a swift death captured the body’s healing life force, while a slow death depleted it.”

That conviction—that human bodies were a powerful source of healing—helped erase any possible taboos around the use of corpse medicine. Medicinal cannibalism was widespread and culturally accepted. In fact, even popes relied on corpse medicines. At the time, there was nothing sensational about using human bodies as medicine.

On a basic level, people relied on corpse medicine because, in many cases, they had actually seen it work. Powdered blood can stimulate coagulation (in fact, any powder can), and when fat was applied to wounds, it could provide some protection from infection. Of course, these substances weren’t effective because they came from humans, but they showed results, which convinced people of their value.

A Blatant Double-Standard

Of course, the moment we call something “cannibalism,” it becomes taboo. That word carries with it a justifiably negative connotation. In large part, that is why I and other scholars use it to refer to these European practices—to highlight an irony that surrounds the widespread acceptance of corpse medicine.

At the same time that people across Europe were buying bone powders and slices of human flesh to cure themselves, these same Europeans showed particular disdain for the “cannibalistic” practices of New World natives. Chroniclers recounted (and often fabricated) sordid tales about the “barbaric” practices of other peoples.

For example, Christopher Columbus told tales of the warlike “Caniba” people “who ate men.” Spanish accounts of the Aztecs are filled with stories of cannibalism, despite the fact that researchers haven’t found definitive evidence that this was customary. (Cannibalism may have occurred occasionally to humiliate enemies, but there is also evidence to suggest that Spaniards created the myths.)

The discourse of “cannibalism” was a political tool for European Christians looking for reasons to excuse their invasion of the Americas, Africa, and other parts of the world. It seemed to be undeniable evidence of others’ “savagery” and gave license to the so-called “civilizing mission.” Meanwhile, Europeans’ own medicinal practices escaped the label of “cannibalism” and fell under the benign labels of “mummy” or, simply, “medicine.”

Some early modern writers were aware of this hypocrisy. In his essay “Of Cannibals,” Michel de Montaigne pointed out the European double standard that “physicians make no bones of employing [dead carcasses] to all sorts of use.”

He continued, “…everyone gives the title of barbarism to everything that is not in use in his own country,” highlighting the fact that many Europeans never considered that they condemned people for actions that weren’t radically different from their own.

I hope I don’t have to make this clear, but I will: I’m not endorsing cannibalism or corpse medicine. My essential point is to draw attention to the fact that similar practices—consuming parts of a human corpse—received distinct labels across different cultures, and people who freely consumed “mummy” condemned those branded as “cannibals.”

US BISHOPS DISCOURAGE CATHOLICS FROM EATING HUMAN FLESH IF ALTERNATIVES AVAILABLE

A satirical take on the bishops’ response

Author John Zmirak takes a satirical look at the recent moral interpretation of the U.S. bishops concerning abortion-tainted vaccines.


In a bold act of moral courage, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) released a statement March 2 encouraging Catholics to avoid eating human flesh, if supermarkets and restaurants offer alternatives.

In Thursday’s statement, Bp. Kevin Rhoades, chairman of the conference’s Committee on Doctrine, and Abp. Joseph F. Naumann, chairman of the conference’s Committee on Pro-Life Activities, recommended Catholics eat at Chick-Fil-A, Wendy’s or Chipotle over fast-food restaurants that admit they serve human flesh obtained from Planned Parenthood.

‘Li’l Snackers Mystery Veal’

“The approval of ‘Li’l Snackers Mystery Veal’ for sale in the United States again raises questions about the moral permissibility of consuming human flesh, especially when it is only available thanks to homicide,” the bishops wrote in their statement.

This has prompted criticism from a number of Catholic groups, including the Catholic archdiocese of New Orleans, which last week urged people to avoid having “Li’l Snackers,” calling it “morally compromised.”

The guidance was at odds with The Vatican, which in December declared that it is “morally acceptable” for Roman Catholics to eat “Li’l Snackers,” except on Fridays in Lent.

Bishop Rhoades and Abp. Naumann said that when “ethically irreproachable” protein is not available, it is morally acceptable for Catholics to enjoy “Li’l Snackers.”

However, they urged Catholics to try and choose meat products containing the lowest percentage of human flesh when possible.

Fighting Hunger by Eating Meat

“Therefore, if one has the ability to choose a meat source, pork, beef or chicken should be chosen over ‘Li’l Snackers,'” the bishops continued.

“While we should continue to insist that meat companies entirely stop selling abortion-derived meat products, given the worldwide suffering that hunger causes, we affirm again that eating meat can be an act of charity that serves the common good,” they added.

OK, OK …US Bishops Discourage Catholics From Receiving Johnson & Johnson Vaccine If Alternatives Available Over Abortion Link.GabTweet

As you might have guessed, that wasn’t quite a genuine news story. In fact, I created it by changing just a few words here and there in a news report. It came from my paper of record, The Epoch Times: “US Bishops Discourage Catholics From Receiving Johnson & Johnson Vaccine If Alternatives Available Over Abortion Link.”

Why do that? Not for a chance to engage in macabre humor. At least, not just for that reason. I wasn’t that warped by watching The Addams Family as a kid.

Because We Are Neither Hot Nor Cold

No, I wanted to highlight the limp, wet-noodle approach the U.S. bishops have taken to a serious moral issue. Now, solid pro-life Christians — as all Catholics ought to be, no matter what the president or his trained, pet Jesuits tell you — can differ here. And they do.

Some Catholics believe that it’s absolutely immoral to use a vaccine developed using tissue lines from murdered unborn children. They regard the research use of aborted babies’ tissue as morally equal to picking up the results from Nazi experiments in death camps. Virtually all scientists refuse to do that, even in the name of saving lives.

It’s not even clear that for most people — apart from those of advanced age or with serious underlying conditions  — the COVID virus represents a mortal threat. Nor do the vaccines fully prevent transmission of the virus. So for the healthy and young, shrugging at vaccines’ abortion links seems crass and amoral. Only those at real risk of COVID death, thanks to other medical conditions, could really plead “necessity.”

And if it’s the only way to avoid starving, the Church believes that actual cannibalism can be justified. But only if the person’s already dead (and wasn’t killed for food).

Cardinal Burke: It’s Abhorrent

Some of the most doctrinally solid Catholic bishops agree with that stance. As the excellent LifesiteNews reports:

Cardinal Raymond Burke, former prefect of the Supreme Tribunal of the Apostolic Signatura, has previously spoken out against vaccines using aborted babies: “It must be clear that it is never morally justified to develop a vaccine through the use of the cell lines of aborted fetuses. The thought of the introduction of such a vaccine into one’s body is rightly abhorrent.”

Catholic Neocons: It’s Morally Neutral

Other equally dogged Catholics disagree. Just today, the Ethics and Public Policy Center (EPPC) issued a statement by pro-life scholars. Its conclusions are clear:

While there is a technical causal linkage between each of the current vaccines and prior abortions of human persons, we are all agreed, that connection does not mean that vaccine use contributes to the evil of abortion or shows disrespect for the remains of unborn human beings. Accordingly, Catholics, and indeed, all persons of goodwill who embrace a culture of life for the whole human family, born and unborn, can use these vaccines without fear of moral culpability. [emphasis added]

[The vaccines] do not contain the remains of any human being and so its use does not show disrespect for human remains, any more than the contemporary use of products, such as roads or train lines that were constructed by unjustly enslaved human beings, or use of land unjustly taken, shows disrespect for those victims in the distant past.

The EPPC statement dismisses the bishops’ attempt to distinguish between which vaccines are more or less tainted by abortion links:

[W]e think it a mistake to say both that these vaccines are morally permissible to use and yet that some ought to be preferred to others. There appears to us to be no real distinction between the vaccines in terms of their connection to an abortion many decades ago, and thus the moral starting point is one of equivalence.

Let’s Split the Difference, OK?

Both Cdl. Burke’s position and that of the EPPC have one thing in common: They’re coherent and self-consistent. Each of the vaccines on the market have real abortion links, though Johnson & Johnson’s are the most blatant. Burke and his supporters think the abortion link is direct enough to make the vaccines immoral, akin to cannibalism. The EPPC considers the links so remote that they shouldn’t trouble pro-lifers considering the vaccine.Burke and his supporters think the abortion link is direct enough to make the vaccines immoral.GabTweet

But the U.S. bishops, in the spirit of “splitting the difference” and going along to get along, have managed to adopt a stance that really is as absurd as the “Li’l Snackers” stance I depicted above. Use of these vaccines is either a form of cannibalism or morally neutral. Suggesting that taking them is kinda sorta morally reprehensible, so we gently encourage Christians to avoid it … if it’s not too inconvenient?

That’s the kind of pastoral courage that gets you promoted to top leadership positions in the Catholic Church today.

Pennsylvania House Democrat Introduces Forced Sterilization – Three-Child Limit Legislation

Pennsylvania Democrat Christopher M. Rabb sent out a memorandum to all House members regarding his legislation that will enforce reproductive responsibility among men.  The bill will force men to undergo vasectomies within 6 weeks from having their third child or their 40th birthday, whichever comes first.

This legislation includes a $10,000 reward to whoever snitches to the proper authority on those who have failed to submit to forced sterilization within the allotted time.

This bill will also include legal actions for unwanted pregnancies against inseminators who wrongfully conceive a child with them.

“As long as state legislatures continue to restrict the reproductive rights of cis women, trans men, and non-binary people, there should be laws that address the responsibility of men who impregnate them. Thus, my bill will also codify “wrongful conception” to include when a person has demonstrated negligence toward preventing conception during intercourse,” Rabb stated in his memorandum.

PA State Rep. David Rowe posted on his Facebook account regarding this horrendous bill:If there was any doubt that today’s progressive left have utterly and completely disregarded your personal medical freedom, then let this be the nail in the coffin.

A legislator from Philadelphia has just introduced legislation that would limit how many children your family could have, dictate what age you could have a family, and would issue a TEN THOUSAND DOLLAR FINE for refusing to submit to forced sterilization after having three children. As a fourth-born child myself, I would have never existed under this law and neither would so many others.This bill will never see the light of day as long as Republicans control the House, but I wanted you all to be aware how quickly policies that belong in Communist China would become the norm here if Democrats seized total control of State Government.The left is pushing to make America a godless, communist country like their big boss China.  This is utterly sickening population control and they do this while illegal immigrants and refugees are flooding across the open borders.You can read the memorandum here:

Converse ‘Sells Out’ to Satan With New Pentagram Shoe

On July 27, 2021, American fashion designer Rick Owens, 59, launched a his version of the classic Converse Chuck Taylor All-Stars shoes called Converse x DRKSHDW TurboDrk Chuck 70, which features a Satanic pentagram symbol on the tongue of the shoe hovering above the Converse brand name.

As of today, the $170 Converse x DRKSHDW TurboDrk Chuck 70’s have sold out, according to Converse’s website, which also provides a way to sign up for text notification when more become available.

Converse is promoting the shoes with a demonic-themed Instagram post. The image has two models dressed in all-black, leather jumpsuits with their faces painted white highlighted by black eye shadow and lipstick while holding a Satanic pentagram in their mouths. The models are wearing Owen’s new Converse x DRKSHDW TurboDrk Chuck 70s. In one of the images, the two models pose in formation to create a human pentagram.

Owens’ says his inspiration for the Satanic shoe comes from his fascination with the pentagram.

“I’ve been using this pentagram for a long time because obviously, it has adolescent occult associations,” he said. The fashion designer explained why he likes the symbol: “I like geometric diagrams like that because, in a very primal way, they are a culture’s grasp for control. And a way to organize thoughts and systems. And a pentagram, in this day and age with all of its associations…I like the fact that it refers to an alternative system. And that suggests openness and empathy.”

The pentagram “suggests the pursuit of pleasure, this pursuit of sensation,” Owens said. “But one of the main things that I think it suggests is empathy and a consideration of systems of living that might not be standard. So that leads us to be more accepting and tolerant of other systems, which I think is a good thing.”

The pentagram symbol used on the shoe’s tongue is known as the Sigil of Baphomet, which is the official mark of the Church of Satan.

In a interview with WWD, Owens called his Converse x DRKSHDW TurboDrk Chuck 70’s “a little grotesque” and said, “I always think of it as kind of corrupting something that exists.”

Owens described Converse’s brand symbol as “mega chunky” and chose to replace it with what he called a darker and younger symbol.

Nike Shuts Down Lil Nas X’s Satan Shoe

Earlier this year, Nike sued MSCHF for designing, marketing, and selling 666 pairs of Nike’s Air Max 97s, dubbed “Satan Shoes” in a collaboration with rapper Lil Nas X. Marketing boasted that the shoes contained a drop of human blood in the sole and sold out almost immediately. Nike won the suit, stopping MSCHF from shipping any future orders of the Satanic shoe.

GOSPEL SINGER KELLY PRICE MISSING IN GEORGIA After Revealing COVID Battle

Gospel singer Kelly Price has gone missing in Georgia, TMZ has learned — and it happened shortly after she was released from the hospital after battling COVID.

According to officials in Cobb County … Kelly has been listed as a missing person following a welfare check conducted at her home last Saturday.

We’re told the authorities found no evidence of foul play and spoke with Kelly’s boyfriend at the residence, BUT … she’s now listed as missing with the National Crime Information Center.

As for what led to this … Kelly posted a video July 29 revealing she had COVID and was struggling with symptoms. According to Kelly’s family … she was admitted to the hospital about a week later and ended up in the ICU because her condition worsened.

Her family tells TMZ … they were in touch with Kelly while she was in the hospital in early August, and her children visited her several times. However, 3 weeks after she was admitted … we’re told her kids got a call that she’d been discharged, which was surprising because she was apparently still not fully healthy.

The family says Kelly has not been heard from since, and they told cops her boyfriend is allegedly keeping friends and family members from visiting her home.

We’re told this concerned many people close to Kelly, and led to someone alerting the authorities to do a welfare check last week.

Now, she’s officially considered missing, and we’re told there’s an active investigation to find her.

FDA Official Calls for Forced Vaccinations of Black People: ‘Like, Blow Dart. That’s Where We’re Going’

YouTube/Project Veritas

Project Veritas released the second video of its undercover Covid-19 vaccine investigative series on Wednesday.

Part 2 exposes a U.S. Food and Drug Administration [FDA] official calling for forced vaccinations of Black people.

According to the CDC, over 70% of Black New Yorkers are unvaccinated.

Project Veritas went undercover to record FDA economist, Taylor Lee, calling for forced vaccinations of Black people and keeping a “registry” for all unvaccinated Americans.

In the video, Lee said U.S. Government policy should be similar to Nazi Germany when it comes to forcing people to take the vaccine.

Lee said health officials should go door-to-door forcing vaccines on people who are hesitant or fearful.

“Census goes door-to-door if you don’t respond. So, we have the infrastructure to do it. I mean, it’ll cost a ton of money. But I think, at that point, I think there needs to be a registry of people who aren’t vaccinated. Although that’s sounding very [much like Nazi] Germany.”

He also suggested blowing vaccine-filled darts at Black people who don’t comply.

“I think that a lot of the time — so there’s also this issue of — I remember reading about how with Covid trials, they were having an issue recruiting African American people. It was because of a different medication the government tried to do that was specifically designed to kill African Americans.”

Veritas Journalist: “Yeah. Can’t blame [African Americans].”

Lee: “I can’t. But at the same time, like, blow dart. That’s where we’re going… Again, blow darts. It is the perfect answer.”

In Part 1 of the Covid vaccination series, an undercover nurse working for the federal government recorded an HHS doctor saying the vaccine “is full of sh-t.”

Part 1 garnered over 4 million views in less than 24 hours on YouTube.com. It was scrubbed from Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

Grow and eat your own vaccines?

The future of vaccines may look more like eating a salad than getting a shot in the arm. UC Riverside scientists are studying whether they can turn edible plants like lettuce into mRNA vaccine factories.

Grant enables study of plants as mRNA factories

Messenger RNA or mRNA technology, used in COVID-19 vaccines, works by teaching our cells to recognize and protect us against infectious diseases. 

One of the challenges with this new technology is that it must be kept cold to maintain stability during transport and storage. If this new project is successful, plant-based mRNA vaccines — which can be eaten — could overcome this challenge with the ability to be stored at room temperature. 

The project’s goals, made possible by a $500,000 grant from the National Science Foundation, are threefold: showing that DNA containing the mRNA vaccines can be successfully delivered into the part of plant cells where it will replicate, demonstrating the plants can produce enough mRNA to rival a traditional shot, and finally, determining the right dosage. 

“Ideally, a single plant would produce enough mRNA to vaccinate a single person,” said Juan Pablo Giraldo, an associate professor in UCR’s Department of Botany and Plant Sciences who is leading the research, done in collaboration with scientists from UC San Diego and Carnegie Mellon University. 

“We are testing this approach with spinach and lettuce and have long-term goals of people growing it in their own gardens,” Giraldo said. “Farmers could also eventually grow entire fields of it.”

Key to making this work are chloroplasts — small organs in plant cells that convert sunlight into energy the plant can use. “They’re tiny, solar-powered factories that produce sugar and other molecules which allow the plant to grow,” Giraldo said. “They’re also an untapped source for making desirable molecules.”

In the past, Giraldo has shown that it is possible for chloroplasts to express genes that aren’t naturally part of the plant. He and his colleagues did this by sending foreign genetic material into plant cells inside a protective casing. Determining the optimal properties of these casings for delivery into plant cells is a specialty of Giraldo’s laboratory. 

For this project Giraldo teamed up with Nicole Steinmetz, a UC San Diego professor of nanoengineering, to utilize nanotechnologies engineered by her team that will deliver genetic material to the chloroplasts. 

“Our idea is to repurpose naturally occurring nanoparticles, namely plant viruses, for gene delivery to plants,” Steinmetz said. “Some engineering goes into this to make the nanoparticles go to the chloroplasts and also to render them non-infectious toward the plants.”

For Giraldo, the chance to develop this idea with mRNA is the culmination of a dream. “One of the reasons I started working in nanotechnology was so I could apply it to plants and create new technology solutions. Not just for food, but for high-value products as well, like pharmaceuticals,” Giraldo said. 

Giraldo is also co-leading a related project using nanomaterials to deliver nitrogen, a fertilizer, directly to chloroplasts, where plants need it most. 

Nitrogen is limited in the environment, but plants need it to grow. Most farmers apply nitrogen to the soil. As a result, roughly half of it ends up in groundwater, contaminating waterways, causing algae blooms, and interacting with other organisms. It also produces nitrous oxide, another pollutant. 

This alternative approach would get nitrogen into the chloroplasts through the leaves and control its release, a much more efficient mode of application that could help farmers and improve the environment. 

The National Science Foundation has granted Giraldo and his colleagues $1.6 million to develop this targeted nitrogen delivery technology.

“I’m very excited about all of this research,” Giraldo said. “I think it could have a huge impact on peoples’ lives.”SHARE THIS ARTICLE

Military officer, 19, who married a 61-YEAR-OLD father-of-two (despite being younger than his oldest child) reveals her horrified parents called the POLICE to arrest him when they found out about the age-gap romance

  • Audrey Cheyenne-Smiley Moon, 19, met Kevin, 61, on the dating site Badoo in January 2020 and the two quickly bonded, despite their 42-year age gap
  • They spent six months chatting online – during which time they both said ‘I love you’ – before meeting up in person for the first time in July 2020
  • Audrey initially kept her relationship secret from her parents, who are 38 and 43, because they are so much younger than Kevin
  • However the couple revealed their relationship to Audrey’s mom and dad in August of last year – and admit they did not react well
  • When Audrey went to introduce Kevin to her parents, she learned they had called the police, who were waiting outside her family home
  • According to Audrey, her parents ‘spent three days yelling at Kevin’ – however he was eventually able to win them over, proving his intentions are honorable

A teenager who married a 61-year-old father-of-two has opened up about her parents’ horrified reaction to her age-gap romance – revealing that they called the police to have her husband arrested when they first learned about her relationship.

Military police officer Audrey Cheyenne-Smiley Moon, 19, first met husband Kevin, 61, on dating site Badoo, on January 9, 2020 – and the pair quickly bonded, despite their 42-year age gap.

The teenager says she was first attracted to him because of his military background – noticing in his bio that he was a veteran who had worked for the military police, just like she does now.   

Within a few months of chatting online, they were officially a couple and had both said ‘I love you’. In July 2020, Audrey and Kevin, from Modesto, California, officially met up in person and shared their first kiss.

‘Love at first sight’: They spent six months talking online before meeting up in person for the first time in July 2020 – when they shared their first kiss

‘I was both excited and nervous to see him,’ Audrey recalled. ‘He still talks about the day he laid his eyes on me with such passion.

‘Kevin made the first move. He took my face in his hands and we had our first kiss when we first met face to face.

‘We can both agree truly that it was love at first sight.’

Neither Audrey nor Kevin had been in a relationship with such a big age gap before but believe it doesn’t matter as they have lots in common and a deep connection. 

‘Our first conversation was about the military and he asked questions about me and we became very open to each other,’ Audrey said. ‘We talked about everything together.

‘Kevin also looks very handsome to me.

‘What makes our relationship so great and perfect for us is our ever-growing love for each other.’

Before meeting Audrey, Cemex dispatcher Kevin was married for 19 years and has two children, aged 16 and 23.

His kids are supportive of the relationship and pleased to see how happy the pair are.

Because Kevin is older than both Audrey’s parents, who are 38 and 43, she initially kept their relationship a secret from her family – but made the decision to tell them in August last year.

Audrey said: ‘We were open about our relationship to our co-workers but it was a secret from my family at first.

‘I couldn’t handle the stress of keeping it a secret from my family so we agreed that he would come down to meet them.

Struggle: Despite Audrey insisting that the couple knew they were meant to be together, she admits that she initially kept the relationship secret from her parents – who are 38 and 43
Trouble: When Audrey finally told her mom and dad about the relationship, they called the police to arrest Kevin – and had the cops waiting for him upon their first arranged meeting

Connection: Despite her parents’ horrified first reaction to the relationship, Audrey says they have slowly come round to the idea of her marriage

‘My family was extremely hostile about meeting him at first because we told them about us in a bad way.

‘I texted them while I was away with him and we came back to my parent’s house to my entire family and the cops waiting outside.

‘It was scary at first but Kevin was ready to stand for what he believed in and now after getting to know him, my family has really grown to like him.

‘For three days, they yelled at him every time he came to see me and did everything they could to tell him how terrible he is for loving me.

‘He took it and since then has proven to them how much he truly and deeply loves me.

‘We haven’t heard any negative comments from strangers yet, but we have gotten looks but we normally don’t mind them. We focus on ourselves.’

On August 1, 2021, the couple eloped and got married in a small chapel in Nevada.

Now, they are planning for their future together.

Audrey said: ‘Most of the time we talk about getting our dream home, having a baby, and living our lives happily.

‘He wants to be a stay-at-home dad and watch our baby while I am at work and he can pursue his woodworking hobby.

‘He wants to cook and clean for me until I come home. Then we spend time as a family.

‘We want to travel in an RV. We want to get our favorite breed of dogs. Mine is a Staffordshire American terrier pit bull. He wants a Saint Bernard.

‘We just want to be together and never separate again. We are eager to have our baby – it is just finding the right time.

‘Our lives make it difficult for dreams like that but we know in time we will live our dream.’

Support: Audrey – pictured with her father, who at 43 is nearly 20 years Kevin’s junior – has also been welcomed by her husband’s two children, one of whom is older than her

Looking ahead: The military officer is currently stationed in the Middle East, while Kevin is at home in California, however they are planning to move in together when he retires next year

Although they are now married, they are still living apart as Audrey is working abroad in the Middle East and Kevin is at home in California. They plan to move in together once Kevin retires next year.

Audrey said: ‘What makes our relationship work even thousands of miles away from each other is our constant communication.

‘We are always very affectionate towards each other and when times get hard, we try to focus on what we are fighting for. We talk about the future we can have together when our time apart is no longer.

‘I still look at him with eyes filled with pure love and joy and he looks at me the same way. Sometimes we get so happy we start to cry.

‘I love how passionate and patient he is. He is also a very giving person and very kind. He has such a pure and loving soul.

‘People my age are very inconsiderate and selfish. Kevin is the complete opposite.

‘He is very understanding and only wants to do things for me.

‘They focus on social media and gaining followers.

‘People will do anything nowadays to get a like. Me and Kevin aren’t like that. We are very kind-hearted selfless people and love to help each other and the people around us before we help ourselves.’

Audrey, who describes herself as an old soul, added: ‘I did not think I would meet the man of my dreams who is also my best friend and love of my life.

‘He is my soul mate and that is something worth fighting for. Love is endless and indescribable.

‘Kevin and I want to show the world that we aren’t the stereotypical sugar daddy or gold digger relationship.

‘We truly love each other because of who we are and what we do for each other.’

Kevin said: ‘When I first saw her profile, I thought she was a cute girl but wasn’t looking for a young girl, just a friend to talk with.

‘I was actually looking around my area and ages 30 to 50. Her profile shouldn’t have popped up. Something told me to look at it and something told me to like it, so I did.

‘I found a new best friend and fell in love with my best friend.’
