This flu does not make sense. Does it to you?

It is a combination of avian, swine, human. How could this occur in nature?

  • I think it was made in a lab, and released. And a lot of others think the same thing.

  • and that's why it's been on the news everyday, yet some folks think washing hands and a head in the sand approach will keep them and only them safe.  what happens when 5 mil. vaccines doesn't cover 300,000,000 Americans and there are no more ingredients for antivirals.

  • Conspiracy theorists would tell you that this virus is man made in order to mandate a federal quarantine. 3 months indoors will weed out a lot of anti-socialist people. If you believe in that sort of thing.

  • seems to me it would just bring so many socialist types out of the woodwork like roaches crying for the government to save them.

  • It wouldn't be the first time a virus was man made. ie: HIV.

  • HIV was not man made, it's a monkey virus that dates back all the way to 1920, and for some reason mutated and transferred to humans that were eating monkey meat not fully cooked.

  • Go read something about science. It happens all the time. Viruses change, which is why you can't vaccinate against the common cold, and flu vaccines are only partially effective. Most viruses start in animals like birds and pigs.

  • Yes, but they don't go from bird to pig to human. They go bird to human or pig to human. It doesn't make sense biologically. I think it is man made also.

  • This happens all the time! It's how every new version of the flu is created. It's how the spanish flu happened over 100 years ago. This is not new. It is not biological warfare. It is NOT man made. It is a natural occurance.

    If you really want to know and not just scream "conspiracy"... educate yourself:
