Are the Vulcans finally going to give us the secret to warp drive technology? Nah. Strange, alien looking things coming to visit the peoples of the earth? Yes, although they won't be the little, green men that everyone is talking about. Interesting that the makers of the video game use the word 'Nephilim.' It is a Hebrew word used to describe fallen angels, a.k.a. devils, or demons, the which just got very scared and upset at me posting this. God be glorified!

It looks like the people in the Gulf region aren't dying off fast enough. Now, dengue fever is breaking out in Key West, FL. Dengue fever affects tropical areas such as Belize, Brazil, Cuba, Australia, Cambodia, and such places. According to an ABC News/Reuters report, "Dengue is the most common virus transmitted by mosquitoes, infecting 50 million to 100 million people every year and killing 25,000 of them. It can cause classic flu-like symptoms but can also take on a hemorrhagic form that causes internal and external bleeding and sudden death. Companies are working on a vaccine but there is not any effective drug to treat it. Dengue was eradicated in the United States in the 1940s but a few locally acquired U.S. cases have been confirmed along the Texas-Mexico border since the 1980s. More cases have been reported recently in Mexico and the Caribbean." The only problem is there hasn't been an outbreak of dengue fever in FL for 75 years. So how did it get there? None of those infected had been outside America, so how did it get there? One answer is that mosquitoes from Cuba had travelled to Florida and areas beyond. The yellow fever mosquito, or Aedes aegypti, is a primary carrier for the disease. It originated in Africa, but now has been spotted around the world in both tropical and sub-tropical regions. "We're concerned that if dengue gains a foothold in Key West, it will travel to other southern cities where the mosquito that transmits dengue is present, like Miami," said Harold Margolis, chief of the dengue branch at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. "Dengue was eradicated in the United States in the 1940s but a few locally acquired U.S. cases have been confirmed along the Texas-Mexico border since the 1980s. More cases have been reported recently in Mexico and the Caribbean." Here is where it gets interesting. According to the same ABCNews/Reuters news article, "Most probably did not even know it," meaning they did not know they were getting infected. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are known to produce bioweapons in their laboratories. According to CDC information, most diseases don't become Class 2 bioweapons without enhancements from CDC laboratories. One such is the Lassa virus, a West African virus that is quite deadly.
