AS WE approach Halloween, events in the news are becoming even more frightening than a well-produced haunted house: Another doctor tests positive for Ebola, and the head of CIDRAP (Center for Infectiious Disease Research and Policy) publicly worries that this is more likely to spread through aerosols than we have been told. Meanwhile, another top scientist suggests that mutations are making it more contagious than strains that have turned up in the past. Are things really that bad or does somebody want us to, like the announcer says, be afraid — be very afraid?
Also: The overpopulation myth, the virus as an organic hacker, and The Bell Curve and its relevance to transhumanism.
