"AIDS and SARS are ways for epidemiologists (e.g., the CDC, WHO, etc.) to secure their jobs and continued funding for their agencies.  No new emerging epidemics, maybe no CDC, no WHO, so we've got an infrastructure that REQUIRES the "discovery" of new, threatening epidemics.  And the media pick a new one every year.  This year, it's SARS.  For the past couple of years, it's been West Nile Virus.  Next year it'll be something else."---- Dr Dan Duffy DC http://www.whale.to/a/sars.html

Too funny. I would hate to have the job of coming up with these stories. Then again, everyone loves an urban legend.

SARS *scam*? What a bizarre viewpoint. And really sad for the people affected by these REAL diseases.

I think I understand your point -- you think they are making mountains out of molehills, so to speak -- but you are doing nothing but hurt your cause by posting such paranoid and provocative quotes.

BUT-----he answered my question from below~ bwa ha ha ha! I was RIGHT! When left with the usual links to whale.to, I made a few guesses as to what juicy theories might be expounded upon in regards to SARS. I had guessed:

<
1. There is a conspiracy of (choose your poison, LOL)

a. government agencies

b. pharmacuetical companies

c. doctors with conflicted interests

at the root of this epidemic. (Quite possible inventing the germ & delivering it, egads!)

and/or

2. SARS is not REALLY deadly. If we would only (again, choose your poison, LOL)

a. Take 5 bushels of vitamin C

b. immerse our healhty immune systems with 50 cannisters of propellant-delivered SARS, we would see that germ theory does not exist.

Should I peek? Naaaahhhhh........ Whale.to is entirely too predictable.>>

Looking about righto~ and all without clickin da link too! Need a ghostwriter John?

Thank you, Julie.

Can I just say, WOW? I now know why they named it Whale. The whole thing is compiled of "whale of a story"s.

LOL

Hey, just to play devil's advocate for a moment, a series of questions for everyone.

1. Do you personally know anyone who has SARS?

2. Have you?

3. Do you own or have access to an electron microscope through which you have actually seen the "new coronovirus" said to be the cause of SARS?

4. Would you know it IF you saw it? Or just have to accept the say-so of someone else that it was a) associated with the condition b) was "new" and not just another common cold virus?

5. Are you worried about SARS?

6. Would you willnigly surrender certain rights if told doing so would protect you from SARS?

Now, my point is that as far as most of us here are concerned, SARS COULD be completely ficticious; it could be bronchitis or flu or pesticide poisoning. Or even NOTHING.

(note, I am not saying this is my pov, only making the point that we are dependant upon the word of others in such cases, more often than not.

Could be that SARS is an exercise, not only in defending funding and authority, but in preparing the people of the world to accept draconian measures in the event of some other biological crisis OR even in its absence (as with SARS, would most of us be in any position to know for certain one way or the other, if told some dire disease was afoot?)

Just a thought. We tend to accept whatever we are told by the media/experts, and lack any way whatsover to personally verify it beyond those sources. So sure, such a scenario is, at least, possible (if not actual in this case). Also, if you can answer in the affirmative to any of the above questions, I would be interested in hearing your report!
