The 4 Craziest Ebola Conspiracy Theories 0 4. The Simpsons predicted the Ebola outbreak People are claiming that a 1997 episode of the Simpsons predicted the outbreak of the Ebola virus in 2014. The reason? Marge decides to read a book titled “Curious George and the Ebola Virus.” But just prior to her holding up the book, the clock in the bottom right of the screen has its hand on one and seven. Which of course makes 17. 1997+17=2014….. But that also makes 71. Will there be a second panic in 2068? 3. Alex Jones: Ebola is a “scripted disaster” If you have 20 minutes to fry your brain cells, check out the above video from Alex Jones. He isn’t sure if the ‘new world order’ he is always going on about created/released Ebola. But he is sure that the response of the media and government is “scripted.” 2. Louis Farrakhan suggests Ebola was engineered to depopulate Africans Ah, Louis Farrakhan, the leader of the Nation of Islam. A group so far off the deep end, it is considered a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center. Louis is no stranger to inflammatory remarks. Feel free to look up a long list of anti semitic and homophobic comments, among the other offensive statements he has made. 1. Doctors are trying to spread it This one isn’t necessarily crazier than the other three, but it certainly does the most damage. According to Adam Nossiter at the New York Times, “Health workers…say they are now battling two enemies: the unprecedented Ebola epidemic… and fear, which has produced growing hostility toward outside help.” Many people have been associating doctors with the illness. Nossiter continues, “Workers and officials, blamed by panicked populations for spreading the virus, have been threatened with knives, stones and machetes, their vehicles sometimes surrounded by hostile mobs. Log barriers across narrow dirt roads block medical teams from reaching villages where the virus is suspected. Sick and dead villagers, cut off from help, are infecting others.” Mix a deadly disease with a population unwilling to get help, and you are in for some trouble.
