Thoughts on Ebola Share | jeff posted:8/7/2014 7:01:17 PM (Reply)If you are educated, you simply have a larger set of analogies to draw upon when making your arguments. In Africa, where Ebola is rampant, a large percentage of the populace is illiterate. They won't take their loved ones to hospitals because they hear rumors that the virus is actually witchcraft, and doctors who treat the illness are cannibals. Compare that to a well-versed conspiracy theorist who feels that those in government are actually lizard people. WTF good did education do? You still end up believing whatever the hell you want. For instance, all I want to know is if the world is overpopulated and is set to experience a Malthusian catastrophe. After numerous Google searches, the verdict is in: no one knows. So maybe Ebola really is witchcraft. It doesn't matter.bobprin posted:8/7/2014 7:45:31 PM (Reply)A report I read states that white people and especially americans are being refused by force to enter villages to treat the sick. Reason: america created the virus. An executive order was recently signed, (before the stricken aid workers came back) to make it legal to detain anyone exibiting flu like symptoms such as a cough. I got a pm today that there are a half million fema coffins in a warehouse outside Atlanta. There is absolutely no feasible way to contain this disease as there is a thirty day incubation period. I guess all those conspiracy nuts may be right after all. This could get ugly. It is quite possible that this virus has already spread around the globe. So, what to do? Stock up on duct tape? The only sane thing to do is carry on as always but keep a close watch.jeff posted:8/7/2014 7:50:59 PM (Reply)jeff posted:8/7/2014 7:52:04 PM (Reply)Carry on...carry on....because nothing really matters...bobprin posted:8/8/2014 5:13:58 AM (Reply)Lol, shades of Jaxerback. Democracy Now mentioned last night that a man died of ebola in Saudia Arabia yesterday. It was also reported to be in Spain and the Phillipines. It also stated that the two people in Atlanta are improving after being given an experimental drug and the sick in Africa are begging for the stuff. I remember when I used experimental drugs. Ahh the days of the budding counter-culture. So keep on trucking my wayward son, we're all just stardust blowing in the wind.jeff posted:8/8/2014 8:20:18 AM (Reply)Yeah, and there's no indication as to whether or not the drug did anything at all. They could have just recovered on their own without it doing jack. Might as well have just tried casting a counterspell, or praying, and declared the remedy effective.gary107 posted:8/8/2014 1:14:48 PM (Reply)my advice: get a good Jewish doctor, they cast better spells.jeff posted:8/8/2014 5:42:10 PM (Reply)Call me ignorant, but what is this info you have on Jewish doctors?Jaxerback posted:8/13/2014 9:53:48 PM (Reply)Spells?
