Yeah jimi, Insanity and all, I'm all that. but maybe you could tell me how the Bible
is responsible for AIDS.
It was probably caused by Africans who butchered and killed injected monkey's that had something that was like HIV and then mutated to become what we now know as HIV.
In February 1999 a group of researchers from the University of Alabama announced that they had found a type of SIVcpz that was almost identical to HIV-1. This particular strain was identified in a frozen sample taken from a captive member of the sub-group of chimpanzees known as Pan troglodytes troglodytes (P. t. troglodytes), which were once common in west-central Africa.
The researchers (led by Paul Sharp of Nottingham University and Beatrice Hahn of the University of Alabama) made the discovery during the course of a 10-year long study into the origins of the virus. They claimed that this sample proved that chimpanzees were the source of HIV-1, and that the virus had at some point crossed species from chimps to humans.
I know most people are aware of the chain of events leading up to 24 million people
dying of AIDs and the New Yorkers along with San Francisco guys playing around
in Africa and/or islands of choice. I thought you may not know jimi.
