Republicans Should Have No Fear Of Swine Flu

Good news for Republicans. Ignore all the stories about swine flu (H1N1 influenza). Don’t bother to wash your hands or avoid sick people. If there is no evolution, then you don’t have to fear a new strain of flu evolving to be able to spread from human to human.

For the 79% of the country who are not Republicans, or for those Republicans who do believe in evolution, here’s some information posted by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease of the NIH. Click on above diagram for a larger view.

    Well, like Bill Maher said, at least they should be consistant.   If they dont believe in evolution or science, then they don’t get to run back and take Tamiflu when they get sick.  That is reserved for the sinners that created it 🙂

    Even the most hard-core of them are OK with what they call “micro-evolution”.   They just don’t think evolution goes beyond what they call “types”.

    Actually, because of the Repulicans refusal to adapt to science, they will eventually all die out from the flu anyway – validating evolution simply by their departure. Now THAT is what I would describe as achieving utopia …

    New study finds the flu virus ‘paralyzes’ immune system

    “A study coming out of Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, has found that the influenza virus manages to dysregulate the immune system, allowing other infections to thrive in the body.  This discovery, coming at an opportune time as the world battles the new H1N1 flu outbreak, may be the first step in understanding why the flu can cause such high mortality rates in normally healthy individuals.

    The 1918 flu pandemic, which killed 50 million people worldwide, appeared to affect young people more than other ages.  This facet of the outbreak was dissimilar to seasonal flu deaths which tend to count the elderly and very young among its victims.  How the flu virus manages to cause such severe sicknesses in some people, and why it sometimes affects healthy people and other times the elderly or very young, has long been a medical mystery.”
