Can we really be decieved into believing that AIDS is a biological disease and not man nade? Have we really come to a point in time where we just believe what the government shoves down our throat? I for one believe that AIDS was spread with MUCH of the governments help much like syphalis (may be mispelled) was spread by them as well! What is your take on the subject?

Hi WWW, yep, it's misspelled, it's syphilis...LOL I agree with you 110% and I will add for those that are not familiar the following: From Quotations from James H. Jones's "Bad Blood: The Tuskegee Experiment" In 1990, which is not too long ago, a survey found 10% of African Americans believed the United States government created AIDS as a plot to exterminate Blacks, and another 20% could not rule out the possibility that this might be true. As preposterous and paranoid as this may sound, at one time the Tuskegee Experiment must have seemed equally farfetched. Who could imagine the government, all the way up to the Surgeon General of the United States, deliberately allowing a group of it's citizens to die from a terrible disease for the sake of an ill-conceived experiment? Because of this and many other shameful episodes in our history, African American's widespread mistrust of the government and white society in general should not be a surprise to anyone. In 1997 President Clinton made an attempt at an apology to the Tuskegee Experiment's 8 remaining survivors, it went like this: The U. S. government did something that was wrong--deeply, profoundly, morally wrong. It was an outrage to our commitment to integrity and equality for all our citizens...clearly racist. This doesn't sound like an apology to me...do you hear an apology or any attempt at an apology?...I sure don't :-( ~G~

Note: forgot to mention that their were supposedly millions (or somewhere in this $ neighborhood) given to the survivors and the families of the poor Tuskegee experimental idividuals...I say...So What? It's like when people bought and sold slaves...are these human beings worth a dollar amount? This is ludicrous and unforgivable and I don't believe there is nothing that can be done except for the government to publically admit what they did, be put on trial for their offences and accept the consequences of crimes against humanity. ~G~

I went to school in Tuskegee and you can see the effects even today of the "experiments" on the townspeople. Anyone who's been to Tuskegee can attest to this.

Unless there is a proof that you can show me that this disease was develop by us then I would believe you on this matter. It is really hard to look into how this started as there were many angles in the history of this disease. I think all diseases are biological in nature. Are there synthetic kind of diseases? I also believe that in time a certain kind of bacteria or a virus may have to evolve depending on our present environment he is exposed. So the theory that diseases may have evolved from nature itself is more logical for me to accept than a government would spread this disease to create a stir among the population is something that we need to really prove.

Unfortunatley the ignorant will fall first in this grand experiment the government is thowing upon our great civilization. Can you prove that the disease is NOT man made? Since I am entitled to my opinion as well as you yours- we can agree to disagree on this particular topic.

Well I do believe that diseases can be dictated by environment. If that is caused by man or animal or the environment itself that man is into. As to government doing this I just need a proof of it to believe in it.

NO! You get HIV from making bad choices concerning our personal life--and by sharing needles...and by accident if you work around blood.

I know exactly how you feel. This is a really good topic to discus now that you mention it, it's a risky one, I like it. What we did with the African-American syphilis testers was horrible, and I also believe that HIV/AIDS was also another experiment on African-Americans. There's some interesting facts and so called "proof" to help our case, but the government is pretty good at covering things up and making anything they don't say is true a total conspiracy. There's a lot of deceit when it comes to what the public is allowed to know, we won't know a majority of what is covered up.

I am a huge conspiracy theorist- I still think JFK and Bobby were murdered by the CIA and so was Marilyn Monroe and Martin Luther King Jr. I believe the government has the means and the money behind them to hide anything- and see EVERYTHING. They are probably monitoring what I am saying right now- ask me do I care! I will continue to believe this is a man made disease until someone can prove me wrong!
