    here's the US patent number for Ebola, CA2741523A1. It is a bioweapon that was designed to destroy the "Ebo", or "Heebo, Ibo, and Igbo" people. Those terms all mean Hebrew. The children of Esau, concocted a bioweapon that would be able to disguise itself as selenium to be used for nutrient transport within the body of an Israelite.
    All people who haven't been hybridized by Europeans, utilize selenium as their nutrient transport chemical. The European is a different manner of people revealed in Genesis 25:22-27. Europeans, like only the Rhesus monkey, and the yeast utilize sulfur for their chemical transport nutrient. Ebola is one of serveral weapons of biowarfare that the Romans will be using on populations to try to get rid of the chosen people.

    I'd have to say Ebola is a very stupid germ because a true parasite doesn't kill it's host it lives within it and steals resources from it.
    ebola kills a disproportionate amount of those it effects therefore it's life cycle is very short unless it transmits to another host.
    Not the smartest of the bunch of viruses- Darwin award goes to it.

    Hataraku Saibou version: Ebola infects the guys in green suits and makes the black jojo killers die sooner. Then the muscular men and ladies in vests die. The gas mask guys and the bloody maries get controlled and spreading the wrong information, driving the pale white guys crazy. The shotas and lolis and red delivery people died in this process. In the end everyone became activated and destroy everything they see. Eventually the factories and houses collapses and the body dies.
