Frigid Antarctica is loaded with viruses! Researchers found nearly 10,000 species by analyzing water samples!
Antarctica's icy lakes are home to a surprisingly diverse community of viruses, including some that were previously unidentified.

At first glance, Antarctica's freshwater lakes don't seem very hospitable to life. They remain frozen for a good nine months out of the year, and they contain very few nutrients. Some of these lakes have little animal life and are dominated by microorganisms, including algae, bacteria, protozoans and viruses.

With few animal and microbial predators around, viruses likely play an important role in controlling the abundance of other microorganisms, the researcher say. However, these viruses have been historically hard to study since many cannot be grown in a laboratory. But thanks to new genome sequencing technology, scientists can identify viruses without needing to grow them.

"We are just starting to uncover the world of viruses, and this is changing the way we think about viruses and the role they play in microbial ecosystems," said Antonio Alcami, a researcher from the Spanish Research Council.

thousands of viruses waiting to be unleashed on a population which has built up zero immunity to any of them

you do know that in order to resurrect the 1918 Spanish Influenza, they had to go to the arctic to find a few dead bodies harboring the virus?

Then research all of the microbiologists who have since met a grisley or untimely death since...

Without the proper hosts, these viruii will not be able to infect any complex organism without tampering. Most likely, they are phages, infecting bacteria. Could you imagine something that destroys the bacteria in our body? People would die of Vitamin K deficiency and possible dehydration due to lack of catalysts in our gut.

Contagion???
1 Timothy 3:16 KJV
And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.

Isaiah 9:6 KJV
For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

Mark 16:16 KJV
He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.

Acts 2:38 KJV
Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

Romans 8:6-9 KJV
6) For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
7) Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.
8) So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.
9) But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.

Matthew 15:8-9 KJV
8) This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.
9) But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.

Acts 5:29 KJV
Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men.

There are that many viruses in regular temperate and tropical seawater as well. The (mild) news is that they also exist in those numbers in very cold water.

It was a thread supposedly put out by a scientist in the know and the thread mysteriously disappeared? Then it got reposted and then disappeared?

The amount of money that is available by studying these 10,000 microbes/viruses should tell you where this is going. Finding "life" on Mars is one thing but finding it on our planet is very scary. Forget nuclear annihilation scenarios the folks who now own this portfolio of doom may be able to architect viruses for specific genes and basically evolve the human species to the "person-in-charge's" liking.

imagine the ice caps melted and then these viruses would have have released into the global water stream anyway, without us knowing. it would get into our drinking water and we would get infected by these viruses.

Atleast this way the scientists can analyse these viruses and then prepare us for them if they do get out into mainstream.

They other scenario is that these viruses should have remained down there and not got out, now they have a chance to get into mainstream. Its been done in the movies anyway.

I'd like to see that. I'm rH neg and have been intrigued by the research done on it (and the conjectures). I know that I have never had chicken pox and all my kids did. I always wondered if the smallpox vaccine had been responsible. Neanderthal, Basque populations, Nordic area. All strange stuff.

I hope many realize that there are at least dozens of virus strains living in your body right now doing nothing/potentially helping you. It takes very specific mutations and properties of a virus to make it harmful to a person. It's only because of the mechanism of reproduction that a virus is harmful to a person, as that mechanism destroys healthy cells in the process. Spit in your hand, 90% likely that spin has at least 1 virus in it.
