The disease has killed nearly 4,000 people, infecting in excess of 8,000 - the majority in the West African nations of Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia. Communities lie in ruins, thousands of children have been orphaned, millions face starvation but the virus continues its unprecedented pace, invading and destroying vast swathes of these countries. Meanwhile three nurses, two in the U.S. and one in Spain have caught the infection while treating Ebola patients, despite wearing protective suits. Now U.S. scientist Peter Jahrling of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease believes the current Ebola outbreak may be caused by an infection that spreads more easily than it did before Microbiology Expert: U.S. Playing Deadly Game Of Russian Roulette With Ebola The United States is playing a game of Russian roulette by not closing its borders to the threat of Ebola from West Africa, contends a microbiology expert with 30 years experience in academics and private medical practice. Dr. William Miller, author of the pioneering 2013 book “The Microcosm Within: Evolution and Extinction in the Hologenome,” said the establishment is on the wrong side of the issue. “There seems to be a pushback against a travel ban by the media, national leaders and other persons of authority; yet everyone whom I speak to believes that we need to protect ourselves by every means,” said Miller in an exclusive WND interview. “Am I the only voice that is willing to speak against current policy? I deeply feel that we are playing infectious-disease roulette. By not imposing a travel ban to keep Ebola out of DANGEROUS WORLD Department Of Defense Has Been Secretly Preparing For An Ebola Pandemic Since Before April? With Ebola only beginning to spread in West Africa, why did Congress issue biological diagnostics kits to our National Guard in all 50 states before April? Oh, you didn’t know that? Here’s a quote from a House of Representatives Armed Services Committee document relative to a statement to them by Carmen J. Spencer, Joint Program Exec. Officer for Chemical and Biological Defense: “To address the need for a near term capability to combat emerging threat materials, we have already provided Domestic Response Capability kits to the National Guard weapons of mass destruction civil support teams resident in all 50 states. These kits provide emerging threat mitigation capability that includes detection, personnel protection, and decontamination.” If I understand the purpose of this document, the statement is part of an. Obama Delays Ebola Meeting For Nearly 5 Hours While He Plays Golf... Even So, That’s Better Than His New Ebola Czar Who Didn’t Even Bother To Attend The National Security Briefing President Barack Obama’s new Ebola "czar" Ron Klain has skipped another White House meeting on the Ebola crisis, a readout of who attended a Saturday meeting with Obama shows. Obama held the Ebola meeting after spending four hours and 40 minutes on the golf course at Fort Belvoir, according to the White House press pool report from the New York Daily News' Dan Friedman. “The President on Saturday evening convened members of his national security and public health teams to update him on the response to the domestic Ebola cases,” the White House said in an email blast Saturday evening. “The President’s advisors detailed the status of the contact tracing process to identify and, as necessary, monitor all individuals who may have come into contact with Ebola patients in Dallas following their exposure. Here's How An Ebola Quarantine Might Unfold In United States If we don’t know what the government will do to stop high-risk people from traveling and potentially spreading Ebola, we do know what it could do if circumstances got truly dire. The government could force people to stay put. It could even force American citizens who show no signs of the disease to stay away from the public. It’s the power to quarantine, and it comes from laws authorizing dramatic, sometimes drastic action in order to avoid a true public health crisis. The power is scattered among different agencies, spanning federal, state, and local governments. The CDC, for example, has limited authority to quarantine during international and interstate travel under section 361 of the Public Health Service Act. That provision authorizes the U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services to "take measures to prevent the entry and spread of communicable diseases from foreign countries into the United States and between states." President George W. Bush designated Ebola as one of these communicable diseases in 2003 in an executive order Red Cross President: Ebola Crisis Represents Real Threat Of “Global Health Catastrophe” The outbreak, which has already infected 8,997 people and killed 4,493 in West Africa, is an “epidemic of global dimension and global threat," Maurer said. "In a globalized world it is an illusion to think that such a disease can be contained locally," he continued. "Every local collapse of a system like we see now in Liberia includes the threat of a global health catastrophe. That’s what we risk.“ His comments echo those of Anthony Banbury, chief of the U.N.'s Ebola mission, who this week warned that if the global community does not step up its efforts to stop Ebola by Dec. 1, the world will "face an entirely unprecedented situation for which we don't have a plan." “Ebola got a head start on us,” Banbury told the U.N. Security Council on Wednesday. “It is far ahead of us, it is running faster than us, and it is winning the race." Pope’s Astronomer Says Literal Interpretation Of Bible Is Blasphemous, Young Earth Believers Are Heretics, But Alien Arrival Will Be A Good Way To Straighten Things Out Brother Consolmagno said literal readings of the Bible is "bad theology". "It's almost blasphemous theology," he told Fairfax Media during a visit to Brisbane on Wednesday. But the idea of extraterrestrial life has been of immense interest for Brother Consolmagno. "The idea that human beings are the centre of the universe is an enlightenment idea, a humanist idea. It's Voltaire, not Christianity," Brother Consolmagno said. "The universe in the Middle Ages was full of all sorts of non-human creatures. They thought that planetary intelligence was moving the planets and certainly they had the whole story of angels and the idea of the fall of angels, that there could be a complete class of creatures utterly different from human beings and yet in a relationship with God.” So how would the discovery of alien civilisation fit in with modern theology? Quite well, Brother Consolmagno thinks.
