Ebola Battle Led by Larry, Curly, and Moe?

The population of Europe had outrun the food supply in the early 1300s, and in a few years, the poor were eating cats, dogs, and other animals. Some say they even ate their own children! People were dying, but rather slowly. Bubonic plague (Black Death) would prove to be more efficient and quicker than famine, […]

Mankind Has Suffered More from Bugs than Battles!

Decaying corpses were stacked all over the burial ground and the streets were littered with the dead. When trains arrived at railroad stations, they had to be cleared of dead and dying passengers. The killer was Spanish influenza of 1918-19. In the U.S., about 500,000 people died, mostly young adults! This plague started (at least […]

History Lesson: Greek Empire Fell Because of Disease!

Civilizations have experienced more devastating blows from sickness than from swords–more heartache from bugs than from bombings. The face of the world has been changed more through the louse, the flea, and the mosquito than by marching armies and flying missiles. When the daily count of the dead reached the breaking point (different in various […]

Informed health officials say that Egypt was the medical center of the ancient world. The ancient historian Herodotus recorded that during the days of the Medo-Persian Empire, it was King Darius’ practice “to keep in attendance certain Egyptian doctors, who had a reputation for the highest eminence in their profession.” However, Egypt was not nearly […]

If the Ebola virus disease (EVD) explodes across America we can expect many oppressive but necessary laws to be passed. There will be limitations on personal liberty, but hopefully lawmakers will think these issues through, debate them, and implement only those most necessary. Reasonable people will argue that, in times of emergency, extreme measures must […]

Drought, Disease, and Dictators Not Africa’s Main Problems!

Africa’s biggest problem is not drought, disease, or dictators (all massive problems) but drinking and defecation! And this is similarly true of India, Asia, and areas of South America. Eighty percent of diseases in developing countries are caused by unsafe water and poor sanitation. Africa, India, and some areas in South America are open cesspools […]

Can the CDC Handle the Worst Possibilities of Ebola?

The continent of Africa is a vast area of abundant natural resources yet it remains the world’s poorest and most undeveloped, uneducated, and uncivilized continent of a billion people. I believe the reasons for Africa’s pathetic circumstances are a lack of Christian influence and a variety of other causes: corrupt governments, high levels of illiteracy, incredible […]

Ebola: Can the CDC be Trusted?

A recent CNN poll reveals that only about 12% of Americans think the government can be trusted most of the time and about 75% trust the government some of the time. Evidently our government is the most untrustworthy, unresponsive, and unreliable in history. And most government is sure unnecessary! Every federal agency is not corrupt, […]

Media Refuses to Deal With Scandal at the CDC!

A few days ago I predicted massive media coverage of a major scandal at the CDC involving some of their highest level scientists. I was wrong. The mainline media, including conservatives, refused to deal with the subject! Of course, big, big money is involved and money corrupts everything and a large percent of television commercials […]
