    Even more unlikely is that our ability to edit DNA (or worse, RNA in this case) is very specific. Our "editing tools" (restriction emzymes) cut at VERY specific locations, namely what we call palindromic sites where the DNA sequence has to be either in mirror image on both DNA strands or inverted repeat (i.e reads the same way backwards as forward, hence the term "palindromic").

    The key point to all this is that if it was artificial, there would have been a lot of these "cut marks" left behind in extremely obvious places since the number of sites this "palimdromic sequence" can happen is very rare, and any changes to sites like these are dead giveaways of genomic modification. There really isn't any practical way to "hide" genetic modification if you have the whole genome, so if it was a modified virus, it would have been very obvious. Unless aliens are involved. Then all bets are off, who knows how aliens can edit DNA. If they even use DNA.

    The fact that the worlds population is aging and there won't be anywhere near enough, young working people to sustain the ever growing number of people who are drawing pension is nothing new... its been talked about in the news many, many, many, many, many times.... So would it really be beyond some rich people who know that they can stand back and wait until its over, to use a virus to "deal with the problem"?

    Note... I have no doubt this virus was 100% cooked up by the "mother nature", not some lab designed bio-weapon, but that doesn't mean that the people in power can't take advantage of the opportunities it presents. They don't need to actually pull any trigger them selves, just let the virus do what it does....

    Places like North Korea. They have nothing to lose and need to "teach a lesson" to the rest of the world to feel better. Guys on top would gladly sacrifice a few civilians of their own to keep things under wraps. And you cannot do jack shit about it, because they have ICBMs. Virus did not killed people in millions. It killed money flow. Slowed things down.

    I don't know, all I know is that some guy in China ate a bat. And bats are not supposed to be eaten.

    Why do people keep eating things that are not supposed to be eaten? They could have just hunted a cow or a pig, not a chimpanzee...

    You think cows and pigs don't have viruses either? Swine flu? bovine spongiform encephalopathy (mad cow disease)? Though technically the last one is a pirion and not a virus. All animals carry sickness, it just depends on your luck if it mutated and you're the unlucky bugger that gets it. Avian flu for chickens too.

    Actually, we are just a simulation.

    Just like how one would play a Civilization game.

    Elon musk & spaceX is America's NASA development to leave the planet.

    China just made a virus, to slow down the playing field.

    At least India doesn't want to nuke anyone.

    Just a matter of what you are used to eating. Poorer areas don't have the luxury of picking and choosing, it's either they eat or they starve. Not to mention local quirks like eating grasshoppers or even worse balut *shudder*. I don't think I'll ever dare eat balut.

    Apparently insects have a lot of nutrients so eating grasshoppers isn't bad thing at least. I have never heard balut until now..

    You expected a forum thread shooting the wind to have evidence of a criminal act that can stand in court? lol.
