I must confess to a certain amount of mixed feeling
about the rash of microbiologist demises. Anyone who
is an expert in the area of AIDS and ebola ought to have
a bit of a clue that something isn't right with the picture.
Therefore, anyone who is an expert in the area of
AIDS and ebola is not likely a completely innocent
I've encountered microbiologists who did indeed know
that something was wrong, yet did not speak out.
I can imagine that knowing enough about AIDS and ebola
might be the very thing that could make someone despondent.
I was contacted recently by a Genetech employee who
confessed to me that I was absolutely correct, that the
company knew about the contaminated vaccines, and
that is was very "cloak and dagger."
Ted Strecker was a "suicide", too. Maybe Wiley was a
suicide like Ted Strecker was a suicide, Craig Spence
was a suicide, Danny Casolaro was a suicide, etc.
Perhaps knowing too much about AIDS can be dangerous
knowledge. That shouldn't frighten many here, since there
is so little knowledge.
Science, academia, and media have all shamed themselves
as much as in Nazis Germany. If this version of reality happens
to be the correct one, then there is not much of anything that
could happen to any of them, that they wouldn't really
have coming. I think that most of the human race is
