Perhaps a better approach would be to review the history of the "discovery" of Ebola:
Vintage Photos Show The Terrifying First Expeditions Into The
Congo To Track Down Ebola
It's an absolutely fascinating photo essay - a must read if you're interested in the topic of Ebola.
But the important part is:
The first known Ebola outbreak devastated a small village called Yambuku and the surrounding area in the north of the Congo in 1976.
When it started to kill patients in a missionary hospital, a Flemish nun was infected, and samples of her blood were sent to Belgium. Scientists soon
realized they were dealing with something unknown.
After a harrowing experience with the virus in the lab, Peter Piot, a 27-year-old doctor who was one of the first to examine Ebola, left his pregnant
wife in Belgium and set off for the Congo, then called Zaire, to track down the source of the outbreak. There he joined researchers from around the
world for a terrifying hunt for the origin of the disease.
1. Ebola was first identified in the Congo (then Zaire), and the first documented outbreak was Nzara, South Sudan 1976 (prior to the Congo outbreak).
Not Sierra Leone.
2. The current Ebola virus disease outbreak is caused by a variant of the Ebolavirus. There are five known virus species: Bundibugyo ebolavirus,
Reston ebolavirus, Sudan ebolavirus, Taï Forest ebolavirus , and Zaire ebolavirus. Four of these species causes EVD in humans and one in other
primates. The Ebolavirus is also closely related to the Marburgvirus. And so on and so forth. The point being that the Ebola virus is completely
"natural", i.e. it isn't man-made.
3. The article(s) you linked to is riddled with falsehoods, half-truths and straight-out lies. No actual facts are presented to prove that Ebola is a
bio-weapon. Assumptions, wild speculation and overreaching does not equate to the truth...
And so on and so forth.
And not everyone that disagrees with you is "just trolls". Everyone is entitled to their opinion. And personally I find it hard to differentiate
between this kind of "fear mongering" and the other...
If the point of the article(s) is to help anyone, I think it's doing quite the opposite...
