It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World

Is it just another of the diabolical delusions of the world as we continue to exile God from society or just rogue Frankensteinian scientists gone crazy? It seems that a team of some 32 scientists have decided to genetically modify the emerging H7N9 bird flu virus that has sickened 134 people worldwide and killed 43. Contrary to logic their thought is not to decrease its virulence but to enhance it. These scientists, led by a researcher from the University of Wisconsin, wish to give H7N9 a few new capabilities: drug resistance, faster transmission between people and the ability to sneak past the immune system. One can just picture actor Colin Clive, (Dr. Frankenstein from the 1931 movie), screaming maniacally: It’s alive. It’s alive… it’s alive!

FrankensteinIt would be interesting to see who is funding this research but certainly it sounds like exploration into some form of bio-weapon. Only time will tell what the ultimate utilitarian use of such research really is. …but, yawn, now let’s turn to the sports page, shall we, as millions of potential victims lackadaisically munch chips and flip on the Sunday Football games.

About Catholic Rural Solutions

This group is for the practical application of Catholic Distributist teachings as promoted by Pope St. Pius X, Belloc, Chesterton, Maurin and others in the 20th century. This group is also a respite for traditional Catholics who adhere to the Tridentine Rite of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and who share a concern for small independent Catholic communities throughout the world. These communities while primarily small holding farmers, craftsmen and tradesman all espouse an integrated life based on Catholic Social Justice and the Sacred Magisterium of the Church. Through this we intend to inject the Distributist economic principles into the greater society. Please fell free to share your experiences in this vein. Flaming, proselytizing and persecution WILL NOT BE TOLERATED.
