    Here it is.



    Your thoughts? I, for one, can not see any good reason why they even thought about doing this.

    I agree.

    Ok, get off your computer and go live like humans did in 20 000 BC.

    Want science now?

    Yeah, release it on the USA, Europe and China and all environment problems are pretty much gone. Along with half the world's population, but humanity is overrated anyway.

    Lol soon they'll announce "Release date 12.12.12, available on all major cities"

    Good that I live in minor country and in minor village.

    Btw, they must pay my vaccination once it leaks from their laboratory.

    The irony is that those guys has not created a good weapon. It only has a 50% kill rate and requires nearby human exposure to be transmitted. In the case of an epidemic, masks and anti biotics can be deployed to help treat it probably lowering the spread to pathetic levels and death rates to more acceptable levels like 33% or less.

    Now lets compare it to the guys who developed atomic weaponry. 1 nuke kills millions and leaves a large area uninhabitable for ages. Nukes also cause massive structural damage unlike a virus which can stop automated defenses. Further more the worlds combined nuclear weaponry is enough that it can kill 99.99999% of all life and prevent recovery for millions of years.

    The end result is that his super weapon is nothing more than a calculatable risk. Humanity has survived such viruses in the past, some of which caused much higher death rates (such as the black death).

    I never suggested that. What makes you think I did? >_>

    Illuminati and Zionists are like Arabs and Muslims. (Respectively):

    Not all arabs are muslims.
    Not all muslims are arabs.
    Most arabs are muslims.
    Most muslims are not arabs.

    Anything else you'd like to point out?

    Zionists are actually Jews. Not sure why you'd confuse them with Arabs, their mortal enemy... *Scratches head*

    @DrSuperGood that is true, but creating a virus is much easier then creating a nuclear bomb, and someone who wants to misuse it can create it it more significant numbers then he can nuclear weapons.

    Not really. Viruses are difficult to engineere and can behave unpredictably. One can also create countermeasures to viruses nullifying their effect. A nuclear device is predictable and nothing reliably act as a countermeasure to them and their effects.

    Their unpredictability is the problem. One who releases it probably has suicidal intentions anyway. And by the time you make the cure it already took its toll, you don't need to actually kill a lot of people because of the mass panic, and also viruses can adapt to the countermeasure.
    This one wasn't engineered, just modified.

    People tend to fear pandemics more than super weapons, as far as I know. Probably because diseases are much more common than nuke strikes.

    E: And of course, if there will ever be disease with potential to kill half of the population on earth, just imagine the riots and panic...
