Nice, start a hot thread with emotionally charged FUD tactics, sit back and watch the forum crumble. Its OK that you dont understand science, but try not to mock people who understand things you dont. 

 

 

LOL.....wink.gif

 

I doubt very seriously is anyone here truly understands Science, Microbiology, and Pathophysiology.

 

You think you do?????

LOL....yeah that is FUNNY.

 

Being educated, I know Biotech has nothing to do with pathogens, anatomy, or physiology.

Oh yeah...we need to giggle some more.

 

I think the Aliens from the cartoon I saw last night did it....hahahahahahahahahaha

 

Actually the topic is....an animal that lives in the same environment as YOU is dieing.  Are you concerned or not????

I have a reasonable grasp of scientific principles and thought processes, and would happily listen to an opinion from someone who understood any SCIENTIFICALLY relevant field. Since you dont understand any of these things your opinion is worthless FUD at best.

A quick wikipedia search returned that Biotechnology engineering spans several disciplines which could be relevant to this thread.

I know, I know, Wikipedia is a weak reference. You have not put forwards a single argument that could even hold up to a weak reference, my weak reference holds.

 

Sadly it seems you are bent on sending this thread in YOUR own direction without regards to any scientifically plausible explanation. If you stopped to listen to people who know what they are talking about you might learn something.

Here is the Wiki so people can make accurate false claims

 

Biotechnology is a field of applied biology that involves the use of living organisms and bioprocesses in engineering, technology, medicine and other fields requiring bioproducts. Modern use similar term includes genetic engineering as well as cell- and tissue culture technologies. The concept encompasses a wide range of procedures (and history) for modifying living organisms according to human purposes - going back to domestication of animals, cultivation of plants, and "improvements" to these through breeding programs that employ artificial selection and hybridization. By comparison to biotechnology, bioengineering is generally thought of as a related field with its emphasis more on higher systems approaches (not necessarily altering or using biological materials directly) for interfacing with and utilizing living things. The United Nations Convention on Biological Diversity defines biotechnology as:[1]

"Any technological application that uses biological systems, living organisms, or derivatives thereof, to make or modify products or processes for specific use."

So you are an Arm-Chair scientist.

 

GREAT!

 

You being so perceptive and knowledgeable please tell everyone exactly how a virus works and why it is of concern to specific species.

 

Oh wait, your education only amounts to your chair.

 

Then let me try to explain.....a virus has the ability to hi-jack certain specific DNA peptides in a chain and substitute its own within the chain whereby re-instructing YOUR Dna to make duplicates of the virus instead of proteins needed for your survival.  Each species has a slightly different DNA strand making it unique, this makes a virus that affects dogs for example result in no affect to humans.  However any dog with the near same DNA sequence of the affected dog will be in danger.  Viruses have the ability to adapt and cross the species barrier so yes YOU should be concerned.

 

Now all of you Arm-chair scientists can chew on that and cross Google to check.

Yoda: "The Google is strong Luke. Many people are Googing to disprove your post"

 

Me: "Yes I know Master, they are but children, so let them Google and learn."

 

Yoda: "Yes you are right Dynobot, the Google shall bring light to their dark minds."

Do you know what percentage of the flock died? 

post #42 of 215

This just gets better and better Dyno I have officially stolen your popcorn, percentage I don't know I think it was 1000 at first and then the numbers went up. The lastest figure I seen -yahoo- was 4000 forget how many fish died.

There's no virus that's going to cause a flock to suddenly fall out of the sky. Viral diseases, even rapid ones like Ebola, tend not to kill the host before they can pass the disease along. Also they tend to debilitate before they kill.  I'd be less sceptical of a viral cause if the birds had all been roosting and then fallen out of the trees.

 

And yes, before you start, I've got a Ph.D in biology, population ecology if you want to be picky about it, and have read more than wikipedia on epidemiology and viral outbreaks.

I'll let you kids and PhD's have this topic....

 

 

post #45 of 215

There are flocks of birds dropping dead in places all over the globe, not just this isolated incident.  The Chinese feel it might have something to do with a magnetic pole shift about to occur.
