Today, the World Health Organization ( WHO ) has declared a global emergency because ebola is out of control.

Is this our Mayan 12/21/12  we missed a couple of years ago ?

I personally believe the world is in deep trouble beside the middle east problems.

Any thoughts ?

Ebola burns too quickly to be a true doomsday virus.

Something with a long gestation period and rapid mutation would fit the bill better.

After a shooting spree, they always want to take the guns away from the people who didn't do it. I sure as hell wouldn't want to live in a society where the only people allowed guns are the police and the military.

Yeah, and as I've come to understand it, it's not even a bad strain of Ebola.

I don't know about you, but I prefer not to have ANY strain of Ebola. :tu:

Actually that is incorrect. The strain causing the current outbreak is the Zaire strain of ebola- the most deadly strain we know of.

WHO said today that with polio it took years to control the deaths.

WHO said the word emergency is not to be taken lightly in that the ebola is jumps way ahead of the game.

I hope it can be contained !

Any strain that kills is bad, period.

population density and disease seem to correlate... I can't help but wonder if there's causation.

I was shocked to find out that the CDC owns all patents on the Ebola virus and equipment, and treatment.

The CDC patented Ebola in 2009.

I not sure what this means?

Is this Ebola a military weapon ?

The Plague and Spanish Flu were much, much more deadly.  Heck, malaria is still more of a concern than ebola.

Yeah it's probably something profound like "the more people there are the more opportunities a disease has to spread".

"I warn you, whoever you are, oh you who wish to probe the arcanes of nature, if you do not find within yourself that which you seek, neither shall you find it outside.
If you ignore the excellencies of your own house, how do you intend to find other excellencies?
In you is hidden the treasure of treasures, Oh man, know thyself and you shall know the Universe and the Gods."

That's my guess as well.  Considering the outbreak started 6 months ago and..i think what, 1,000 people have died? so in 1800 days 1000 people have died.  That's not all that terrible for an area like western africa in a big picture sense.

That's not to say help shouldn't be provided.  Of course healthcare support should be given.  But it's simply not a reason for worldwide concern.

Battle isn't wordplay.  It's skill and precision.  Get it? I'm better.
