Conventional science believes viruses can 'jump' from one species of animal to another.
Conspiracy theorist scientists believe that the greatest threat to humanity lies with killer viruses from outer space.
One leading scientist who believes that viruses originate from outer space, says, "Every new strain of virus originates from outer space."
If the scientist is correct in means that one day a meteorite of an asteroid could carry a killer virus which will contaminate our planet.
Absolute devastation would be caused by a bacterium which humanity had not been exposed to during our evolution.
Worried scientists have noticed that since the meteorite hit a region of Russia that many more cases of flu are being hospitalized. One doctor said that he was concerned that when the meteorite crashed into the ice it could have unleashed hidden toxins buried in the perma-ice.
After a severe flu epidemic a lot of bodies were dumped to the bottom of a frozen lake and the soldiers had been killed by typhoid and gangrene. The bodies had been frozen for generations and now the ice has been disturbed and the viruses could have 'thawed out' and have the ability to become "airborne" and cause infection and symptoms of fatal diseases which humanity believed were eradicated.
Some scientists believe that the meteorite itself could have pockets of infection buried inside gases which were inside the rock of the asteroid. On entering the earth's atmosphere the rock would have exploded and the deadly bacterium and viruses could become airborne and start to cause people to develop symptoms of the bubonic plague which doctors believed to be all but defeated. Up to a thousand Russians are complaining of a respiratory disease which is spreading like wildfire. It is surprising that the admission for 'flu' and 'bubonic plague' like symptoms are well up on the seasonal average.
The Russians have become paranoid and believe that the meteorite could have been sent by the USA and unleashed deadly bio-warfare viruses deadly enough to wipe out cities. The Russians are believing in mNY bizarre conspiracy theories. One theory claims that the meteorite strike heralds an invasion by earth by aliens.
A killer meteorite carrying a fatal disease isn't the only worry. Bio-weapons are being concocted in research facilities which have the potential to wipe out 70 % of life on our planet.
A priest is claiming that the 'meteor strike' is an "act of God" and heralds God's anger with the world and it's disdain of Christianity. Some Russian orthodox Christians believe that when the Vatican was struck by lightening, after the pope gave his resignation, it was seen as a sign of God's displeasure. Some conspiracy scientists take this as an apocalyptic warning that the 'end times' are here and that when 'Peter the Roman' comes he will be the anti-Christ.
