Two prayers....

God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

About Me

My photo
A Catholic who follows Rome & the Magisterium. I'm against gay "marriage", abortion, embryonic stem cell research, euthanasia, human cloning. Altar girls, Communion in the hand, Eucharistic Ministers and "Protestant" music in the Church doesn't bother me at all. A proud American retired submarine sailor. Our borders should be secured with a 10 ft. high fence topped by concertina wire with minefields out to 20 yards on both sides and an additional 10 yards filled with warning signs outside of that Let's get energy independent NOW! Back Israel to the max, stop appeasing followers of the Pedophile Prophet. Pro 2nd Amendment, pro death penalty, Repeal all hate crime legislation. Back the police unless you'd rather call a hippie when everything hits the fan. Get government out of dealing with education, childhood obesity and the enviornment. Stop using the military for sociological experiments and if we're in a war don't micromanage their every move. Kill your television, limit time on the computer and pick up a book. God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

Killer flu developed? Ehh no problemo, what could possibly go wrong?

When I first read of this I wondered if someone was pulling some chain. No such luck. Here's the story: http://www.independent.co.uk/news/science/alarm-as-dutch-lab-creates-highly-contagious-killer-flu-6279474.html

If you've read Stephen King's "The Stand" you know where my thinking goes. Nope, I don't see Randall Flagg appearing any time soon. But this is bad enough that he doesn't need to make a showing. Take a look around you on a normal day and envision 60% of the people you come into contact with suddenly dying. BTW, there is NO guarantee you, me, or our families will survive either. Think "Black Plague" level of mortality here.

Just one minor question here, "WHO THE HELL THOUGHT DEVELOPING THIS WAS SUCH A GOOD IDEA?" The article states that it was brought about to insure a vaccine could be developed to counter it. What kind of bassackwards logic was used here anyway?

IAW the Bible, the Tower of Babel insured the demise of civilization due to the pride & arrogance of mankind. I think we're at that point again.

This is what happens when people with too much time on their hands have been given too much money to do foolish things!

I wonder if this is what people felt like at the height of the Depression or World War I or II - despair at the future and what it holds. All we can do is partake of the Sacraments on a regular basis and hope for eternity spent with God.

Something Elizabeth Scalia wrote recently comes to mind: "They need to have their heads banged together until the stupid falls out."

That's progress for you. Science: finding new and creative ways to wipe out the species. Hubris is only a problem for people who believe in God.

Steve, too much time, too much money, no damned decency or common sense!

Ranter, I dunno. I recall reading a lot of post WWI stuff that assumed we'd do ourselves in with biological or chemical warfare. Maybe thats how it will end up. You're right about partaking of the Sacraments and hoping for God's mercy.

Anthony, ah yup. It took advanced formal education to make the justification of this idiocy possible. Good argument for Luddites I guess. God have mercy on us all.
