There is an adage which states, “When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.” I cannot help but wonder whether this applies to the weird happenings that have been taking place within the last few years.
Recent reports of mass die-offs of plants, birds, fish, other animals and even insects have left experts scratching their heads. There has also been an increase in strange mass illnesses all over the world.
As if this wasn’t bad enough, we are now hearing stories where seemingly normal people suddenly and for no apparent reason, attack others; sometimes total strangers. Though this alone isn’t shocking, it is the manner in which these attacks have taken place that is startling.
While things of this nature usually fall into the category of “conspiracy theory,” there are many non-conspiracy-minded individuals (myself included) who are beginning to ask the question, what in the world is going on?
Here are just a few instances of strange things that have taken place:
More than 100 manatees die off the coast of Florida in January 2010. An extreme cold snap with record low temperatures is blamed.
The alarming numbers of mass wildlife die-offs prompts a 2010 study to determine the cause. The study found pesticides in the environment to be the likely cause.
The April 2010 BP Deepwater Horizon accident that spilled an estimated 6 million barrels of crude oil, is suspected in the deaths of baby dolphins in the Gulf of Mexico.
More than 10,000 cattle die in Vietnam. Once again the deaths are blamed on harsh weather.
Indigestion is cited as the cause in the 2011 deaths of more than 700 birds in Italy.
Millions of fish die in the Chesapeake Bay as well as in Brazil and New Zealand. “Cold-water stress” is named as the culprit in this case.
Last but not least, the massive worldwide honeybee die-off is explained away variously as colony collapse disorder or from pesticides. Once again fingers point toward chemical agents.
Mass illness is not an unusual occurrence where many people congregate in one place in close proximity to each other, but what raises eyebrows is when the cause is unable to be determined. Some recent notable cases are:
In late 2011, within the same week 6 different schools in different states, including one incident at an outdoor high school football game took place. All of the students including a firefighter who responded to the football incident, all exhibited similar flu-like symptoms. Though Haz-Mat teams and other officials investigated each incident, no chemical or biological agents were detected. The incidents have been attributed to reasons from a norovirus outbreak to something called Mass Psychogenic Illness.
The most recent round of unexplained outbreaks involved a dozen high school students and 2 teachers at McArthur High School in Hollywood, Fla., who all nearly simultaneously came down with itchy rashes, which caused part of the school to be evacuated. The students and teachers had to be decontaminated. There has been no explanation as to what occurred at this time.
There was also another report of 280 flight attendants suffering from the same symptoms, along with lesions and hair-loss. Seattle’s KING 5 aired a story concerning a chemical in Alaska Airlines uniforms possibly causing skin irritation in some of its employees, however, alternative media sources suspect it could be related to Fukushima contamination.
There was the flesh-eating bacteria outbreak in Georgia, where 4 cases of the rare necrotizing faciitis occurred within weeks of each other. Interestingly, one case was believed to have originated from an Atlanta (Home of the CDC) hospital, while the other 3 all occurred within 100 miles of the city.
Perhaps the most disturbing of these events has been the apparent rash of so-called “zombie” attacks.
Since the Memorial Day weekend attack by “Causeway Cannibal” Rudy Eugene, four similar reports have surfaced:
A 21-year-old Hartford County, Md., college student, Alexander Kinyua was charged Thursday with first-degree murder for allegedly killing a man and eating his brain and heart.
MMA fighter Jarrod White, 26, of Klamath, Calif., was accused of killing 21-year-old Taylor Powell by ripping out the man’s heart while he was still alive, then dismembering him. The incident eerily mirrored the Rudy Eugene attack as White was reportedly found nude and covered with his victim’s blood.
White was reportedly under the influence of psychedelic mushrooms at the time of the killing.
A New Jersey man cut out his own intestines and threw them at police, along with pieces of his skin, when officers tried to detain him.
Finally, one of the most bizarre incidents of them all concerns 29-year-old gay porn star, Luka Magnotta. Magnotta allegedly videotaped himself killing, dismembering, then eating a man believed to be a missing Chinese student. Magnotta then reportedly mailed a severed hand and foot to Canadian political party members.
In each of these instances, except the Jarrod White incident, apparently normal people suddenly and inexplicably went into a murderous rage with three cases where the assailant devoured parts of their victim’s body.
At this time, until further reports are released, no one can be sure if these incidents were caused by drugs, some kind of psychosis, or a combination of both. What kind of drug is capable of inducing such an effect? What type of psychosis has the ability to convert a relatively rational person into a ferocious cannibal?
Is this all just a strange set of coincidences or something else?
Maybe there is a real-life Umbrella Corporation out there, somewhere… waiting… watching… preparing to unleash a “zombie apocalypse” on us after all!
