Why? It won't change anything. We're fucked either way.

Ebola is hardly a threat to the Human Race.

There is nothing we can do to stop it. It WILL wipe out 71% of the human race.

Now, hold on a minute, there, my beloved ol' didster.

Last time I check the math - and to be fair, it's been a while - 72% is not 100%.

Could you please help alleviate my confusion?

... this is my signature!

At which point it will evolve and become immune.

That shows a fundamental ignorance of how evolution functions.

It's a virus. They don't normally change much over time. Bacteria can evolve.

Not so fast, BB.
Wikipedia Wrote:Many viruses, in particular RNA viruses, have short generation times and relatively high mutation rates (on the order of one point mutation or more per genome per round of replication for RNA viruses). This elevated mutation rate, when combined with natural selection, allows viruses to quickly adapt to changes in their host environment.

Of course, I dislike the phrasing "...allows viruses to quickly adapt to changes...".

I did not label my original thread "Ebola is coming".
Thanks for changing it back.
