My daughter shows at AQHA horse shows. One of our friends showed an article he wrote to the local newspaper. He was saying how the H1N1 is man made by our very own government. ANd that the government is going to force us to... Read More

    How exciting - it has been ages since I came across a freaky new conspiracy theory

    There you go again, using a little common sense.
    She really needs to cut that out. It gives us all a bad name.

    Dolce, I couldnlooked it up -- the human version wasn't out until the 1960's...

    The only vaccines in use during WWI were for bacterial infections, such as pneumonia, and smallpox (not that they could see the virus, they just knew that cowpox pus protected you from smallpox). Even so, the last US outbreak of smallpox was just in 1947 http://dermatology.about.com/cs/smal...smallpoxhx.htm.

    The military was making strides with vaccination, http://www.au.af.mil/au/awc/awcgate/...t/chapter3.htm , but the vaccinations were primarily for the troops. Nobody brought any vaccines to Malvern, Alabama in 1918....
    The first rabies "vaccine" was the early work of Pasteur and someone else who's name I forget. I promise it is the case. I'll see what I can find.

    Yup, you're right. That's what happens when you don't double check a website. My bad...:imbar

    But I'm still not putting on a tinfoil hat about the 1918 flu being engineered...yet, anyway...

    I have heard a lot of vaccination conspiracy theories but the flu? New to me, at any rate I particularly like all the sky/cloud shots on the source web page. If I had the time and money a PhD in conspiracy theories would be so up my alley!

    But even then Pasteur did not know that what he was inoculating against was a virus. He only knew that injecting the rabbit nerve derivative would cure rabies - he had no idea rabies was caused by a virus.

    We couldn't see viruses until the invention of electron microscopy in 1931 in Germany.

    Conspiracy 'theorists' - and I use that term loosely - crack me up.

    Actually, I think you will find that Pasteur did know that there was a micro-organism at work because germ theory was his life's work. He even managed to get an attenuated form of the virus. Of course, he wasn't differentiating between virus or bacteria back then -- they were just micro-organisms. Also, he absolutely knew he was inoculating against rabies that was his intention.

    Sorry, but I did a year of school in France and as you can imagine Pasteur was a bit of a rock star, scientifically speaking. So you can't study science there without learning this stuff.

    You know ... sometimes I worry about the future of civilization when I realize that some people are stupid (mentally unbalanced?) enough to believe all these things just because the "read it somewhere" ... or "some guy said" .... etc. etc. etc.

    We need a special kind of tinfoil hat to protect us from those people.

    Note: I'm not talking about the OP who had the good sense to check it out and acknowledge the ridiculous nature of the conspiracy when presented with a few facts and some common sense.
