A theory on the origins of Ebola

27 August 2014, 10:31 gideon

I read a book early in the year "INFERNO" by Dan Brown. The plot of the book is on a renowned scientists attempt to depopulate the world by introducing an epidemic.

His logic is that at the rate the world population was multiplying it would get to a point that resources will not be enough and people will become cannibals. To execute his plan he choose one of "the most populated" nations of the world (Turkey).

The world's population is growing rapidly. China has a rein in theirs via the one child law. India has good medical facilities that could react rapidly in case of an epidemic.

AFRICA! Large population, poverty stricken, selfish and sometimes confused leaders, large clusters of people living together, crowded, poor hygiene, just name it...

THINK! If you wish to introduce an epidemic that could be passed on by a simple touch where will you start from???

My thoughts:
Is the Inferno really 100% fiction?
Were we being provided with a tacit information?
Why will "bush meat" a renowned delicacy in Africa that our fore fathers ate with impunity suddenly become a carrier of death???
Since the United States have a drug, tested on their own citizens with probable result, why did they refuse to try this drug in Africa......

Is there a conspiracy?
