We have a strange relationship with the truth.

  • we want other people to serve it to us untainted
  • we want to have the right to reject it
  • we want an exemption from giving it

Truth is not a buffet that we can graze from, taking a little from here and a little from there, according to what appeals to us.  Truth is one plate in a multicourse meal that our Heavenly Father prepares for us.  Each of us is going to find some things on that plate that don’t appeal to us.  Nevertheless, we are obliged to eat what He serves us.


“They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved.”

2nd Thessalonians 2: 10


Are we living in a time where some of the disease outbreaks we are seeing are not really random, natural events?  Could it be that some of the outbreaks we are seeing are the result of trials of new biological weapons?  The e. coli outbreak in Europe has me wondering that, because of a few strange facts:

  • One of the world’s most expensive medicines may hold promise as a cure  ($54,000 per person, per month–several month’s treatment needed).
  • The medication is currently only approved for one rare disease, so using it to treat the e. coli victims would be a test.
  • The prognosis for the victims is very grim, so who would refuse–especially since the medicine will be provided for free!
  • Given the ’emergency’ situation, if the medication proves effective, will FDA approval be fast-tracked?

But the strangest facts of all:

  • This drug is produced by only one company (Alexion, ALXN)
  • The drug is currently approved for only one–rare–disease
  • It is the only (currently approved) drug this company produces!  (Others are being developed.)

I think it is unusual for a company to invest  (probably) millions of dollars to develop a drug that is useful for only one disease–and a rare one at that.  Is there much of a profit potential there?  And how long can a company remain solvent if this one medication is their only product?  If a chance event like this particular outbreak would come along, for which their medication was found to be effective, wouldn’t it have the potential to raise the stock price of the company?

Maybe it’s all coincidental, or explainable.  If so, then kudos to the company for taking the financial risk to develop such medicines (and for being generous enough to provide free trials to the victims).  As I understand, there is not as much grant money available to develop treatments for rare diseases.  Such a potential windfall could perhaps be viewed as a blessing of God upon their endeavor.

But, perhaps it is not coincidence or good fortune.  If one was to ‘follow the money’ what would they find?  Who are the initial investors in the company?  Who has provided grant money? What other companies and individuals is Alexion associated with?

And–more importantly–who holds stock in the company?  Who has recently invested?  People with ‘foreknowledge’ buy stocks (or even entire companies) that they know are poised to make a profit.  (If something is found to be amiss, it is entirely possible that the company itself was not guilty of any wrongdoing.)

But back to the question of whether this might be the trial of a biological weapon.  If one looks at the nature of the illness this strain of e. coli produces, it is the stuff of horror movies.  (How this e. coli attacks the body) An illness that causes one to slowly bleed to death internally, that has only one (expensive) antidote, would seem to be a good potential candidate for a biological weapon.

Maybe I think too much–but the reason I write this blog is to get other people to think more for themselves, to dig deeper, to consider possibilities.  There are many powerful people out there, with agendas of their own, that can influence the media.  There is a lot more going on, behind the scenes, than most people realize.  You can’t just believe everything that you’re told!,1518,766918,00.html
