Like a thief in the night, artificial intelligence has inserted itself into our lives. It makes important decisions for us every day. Often, we barely notice. As Joe Allen writes in this groundbreaking book, “Transhumanism is the great merger of humankind with the Machine. At this stage in history, it consists of billions using smartphones. Going forward, we’ll be hardwiring our brains to artificial intelligence systems.”
The world-famous robot, Sophia, symbolizes a rising techno-religion. She takes her name from the goddess—or Aeon—whose fall from grace is described in the Gnostic Gospels.
With an academic background in both science and theology, Allen confronts the paradox of what he calls “good people constructing a digital abomination.” Dark Aeon is nothing less than a cri de coeur for humanity itself. He takes us on a roller coaster ride through history and the emergence of Scientism, and from government-mandated mRNA vaccines to the weird visions of cyborg billionaires like Elon Musk.
From Silicon Valley to China, these globalists’ visions of humanity’s future, exposed and described in Dark Aeon, are dire and terrifying. But Joe Allen argues that humanity’s salvation is within our grasp. Only if we refuse to avert our eyes from the impending twilight before us.

“Joe Allen’s Dark Aeon is the first comprehensive critical analysis of the planned post-human future. It will give you great clarity (as well as nightmares). Allen has long been our most thoughtful authority of this ill-understood catastrophe and no one who wants humanity to survive should ignore his warnings here." —Naomi Wolf, bestselling author of The Beauty Myth and The Bodies of Others
“It’s easy to feel technology brings something new under the sun every minute, faster than we can keep up. In fact, that’s part of the plan for those racing to replace our humanity and our reality with simulated gods. But today’s apparent novelties have deep and ancient roots, and the spiritual response they demand is stronger than any smart power. Dispel the shadows with Joe Allen’s Dark Aeon, a grand tour of the cosmic sweep behind our present predicament. He goes deep, and he’s got receipts.” —James Poulos, author of Human Forever
“Joe Allen's book is a warning beacon in a dark sea. He shows us what every one of us must do today to save our freedom . . . indeed to save our humanity.” —Royce White, political activist and former professional basketball player
“Transhumanism is a clear and present danger to every man, woman, and child on earth. At its very core, it is anti-human. Joe Allen blows away any mystery about what it is, where it came from, and where it is headed. If there are one hundred different angles from which to view transhumanism, this book explores them all. Joe’s writing style is detailed and yet clear, replete with occasional sarcasm and appropriate cynicism. Those who start this book will be compelled to finish it in order to understand why transhumanism must be stopped, and the sooner, the better.” —Patrick Wood, author of Technocracy: The Hard Road to World Order and Technocracy Rising: The Trojan Horse of Global Transformation
“The darkness that is enveloping the world is driven and defended by an ideology. It posits that life will be made better by an embrace of the destruction of humanity as we know it. This ideology—transhumanism—is better understood and explained by Joe Allen than any other intellectual currently at work. Dark Aeon is a thorough explication of the crisis before us, and a must read by anyone who cares about their country and humanity.” —Brian Kennedy, president of The American Strategy Group, and chairman of The Committee on the Present Danger: China
“From DARPA’s militarized humans to digital Darwinism, immune system software updates, and mental bioweapons, there is no doubt the age of humanity’s merging with machines is upon us. If you read one book about transhumanism today (and we should all be reading about this emerging plague), let it be this one. This is a tour de force, a compulsively readable runaway train from start to finish. Allen has not only gone into the belly of the technological beast and scoured the depths of the coming dark age of the tech gods, he has emerged triumphant with razor sharp wit and brilliant clarity to help us understand what is transpiring all around us. If only we allow ourselves to see, we are being ‘hardwired for control.’ Allen's astute observations are clearly supported and his warning that ‘transhumanism is Satanism with a brain chip,’ will continue to haunt you long after you close the book.” —Jennifer Bilek, investigative journalist
