As Ebola has mysteriously been downgraded from the American media, even the alternative sources of more honest reporting, perhaps the issue was as overblown as all of the pandemic warnings of the past few decades have been and who, in their right minds, would want to disrupt our congested traveling patterns? I tend towards the former conclusion, but do not want to rule this rather ugly and frightening disease out entirely. Something of a generalized, widespread nature would certainly fit into the maelstrom of chaos that America and the world seem to have entered. So, a tad more interesting tidbits, regardless of risk.
Media coverage is now focusing on the experimental Ebola treatments being given to two American Ebola patients who contracted it while caring for victims in Africa — the site of the world’s deadliest outbreak.
But that Ebola treatment was developed by a leading bioengineering scientist from the University of Arizona who was caught on camera “joking” about wiping out humanity. Dr. Charles Arntzen suggested the use of a “better” genetically engineered virus during a post-lecture Q&A focused on over-population issues, citing the 2011 Hollywood film ‘Contagion.’
As Truthstream Media previously reported, on February 2, 2012, Dr. Charles Arntzen, head of The Biodesign Institute for Infectious Diseases and Vaccinology, responded to a question pertaining to whether feeding some eight billion people in the world was worth it, or whether population reduction should be pursued.
In response, Dr. Arntzen quipped:
“Has anybody seen ‘Contagion’? That’s the answer! Go out and use genetic engineering to create a better virus… 25 percent of the population is supposed to go in Contagion.”
While this comment was made prior to the current Ebola outbreak fears, it is unsettling given the fact that Dr. Arntzen was already working a biotech vaccine for Ebola.
