I had an 80-year-old JW come to my door the other day out of the blue. A very pleasant fellow, but it didn't take me long to get exasperated with him, especially when he tried to tell me that the Ebola virus was created by people not washing their hands. The interesting bit was, he was trying to tell me that his god created everything that we see here and now (creationist nut), and I pulled him up on his Ebola bollocks by pointing out that if his god didn't make it, then it must have evolved through bad hygiene, as he stated. He started backtracking then.
So the crux, where did the filo-viruses come from? Did god make them? If he did, why? If he didn't, then did they evolve? Where they on the ark? (My JW friend reckons bacteria and viruses started to exist after the flood, and I smacked him down by pointing out that the flood was supposed to have destroyed every living thing, so how did germs survive if they weren't on the ark?)
What was god thinking when he made Ebola?
