Weekend Rebel Science Excursion - 36

Trick or Treat GOP
Hey, it is Halloween Friday, so I thought I would direct today's post primarily to the GOP (Group of Paranoids).

"There are an estimated 1031 viruses on Earth. That is to say: there may be a hundred million times more viruses on Earth than there are stars in the universe" ... and at any time they, and their generally larger hosts -microbes ... billions of them are on and in members of the GOP, and the rest of us, no matter how paranoid anyone is or is not (An Ocean of Viruses, On The Origin of the Genes of Viruses, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11).

Only about one percent of them are pathogenic or parasitic to humans, the other 99% of
Truth is never the fault of the Messenger
them are like the 99% of humans, the common folk.

Your denial of global warming induced climate change, another paranoid delusion, is damaging the ecosphere they need in order to exist.

But more than that, the damage we have done and are doing may impair their ability to stay sane.

Left alone in a healthy environment, like most humans, they tend to become mutualists (Microbial Languages: Rehabilitation of the Unseen--2).

But if you keep up your ignorant denialism and your paranoid antibiotic murders around the globe, enough of them may convert into pathogens as they have when previously endangered (What Did The Mass Extinctions Do To Viruses and Microbes?).

Then you would have something to be very, very afraid of (Civilization Is Now On Suicide Watch, 2, 3, 4), seeing as how each one of us is inundated with them.

Scientists are into a new revolution of learning about genes, microbes, and viruses.

Expect surprises.

Just recently they have found that some viruses that were associated with plants, not animals, have been found to have seemingly migrated into humans ("Chloroviruses ... are large DNA viruses known to infect certain eukaryotic green algae and have not been previously shown to infect humans or to be part of the human virome. We unexpectedly found sequences ... in ... DNA extracted from human ... samples" (New Linkage).

Circumstantial evidence hypothetically indicates that those who have the virus experience a slow down of some human thinking, but that is not utterly conclusive yet.

Nevertheless, some pathogenic microbes have been found to be able to rewire animal brains (The Germ Theory - of Government - 9).

I think you probably know where this is going, so assuming there is time left to stop doing what you, the traditional party of Oil-Qaeda, have been doing before it is too late (Oil-Qaeda - The Indictment) stop doing it.

The same goes to the other parties who want to be GOP (Group of Paranoids) who more and more likewise seem to want to corrupt themselves into oblivion.

Like the rest of us, you can run but you cannot hide.
