Ancient virus recovered from permafrost has genes not found on Earth -

*** FUNDRAISING UPDATE: Well, here we are again.  Its fundraising time in the good ole Rockies at the Vatic Project.  Now our deficit is at $229 due to donations received yesterday.  I wish to express our deep appreciation for those who gave to help keep us on the net.  We appreciate our readers and their support in so many ways, and hope that you can help us out this one more way.  

If you can afford it and wish to support us financially, please use the donation button off to the right of this blog.   Bless you for all that you do, including commenting, passing our blog around and showing your appreciation by emails etc, for our work.  We never know if what we are doing is making a difference and your feedback has been extremely valuable in that regard.  God bless you and keep you prosperous and safe.

Vatic Note:  Well, I have very mixed feelings about this one.  On the one hand, I know that the illuminati families produce children who become scientists and members of secret societies.   We published a blog on it called "The Brotherhood of the Bell:  Dark Arts and Dark Sciences".

It was most revealing.   It was also mentioned that these scientists could conjure up whatever they needed to move the globe further toward their agenda.  The Carbon Tax for the bogus global warming was just one example. We have no idea what other scientific offerings they have given us that were not real, or were real but served some purpose other than benefiting man kind or the planet.

On the other hand, we have found definite evidence that alien visitation in the past was a reality, so they could have brought such viruses with them.  Having said all that, my question would be "Why Siberia only?"  What happened in Siberia that did not happen anywhere else?   Was that the landing place for these aliens if this is the source of this virus? 

This article talks about the fact that they are not all from one source since they have no common genetic material.  That implies these are from different planetary sources.   Well, ancient writings also talk about different human type "Gods" that came to earth and visited and some stayed and mated with the daughters of man.  If that is the case, then its far from unreasonable to assume the same could happen with the viruses.   They are certainly different than anything on earth that we have found.

This is a very interesting article with deeper implications than what appears on the surface.   Enjoy the read and the deeper considerations of this knowledge.

Ancient virus recovered from permafrost has genes not found on Earth -
by April Holloway,   March 6, 2014

An ancient virus of unprecedented size has been recovered from 30,000-year-old permafrost in Siberia and reactivated. Incredibly, sixty percent of its genes do not resemble anything currently found on Earth.

The virus, which is so large it can be seen under a microscope, dates back to a time when mammoths, Neanderthals, and early humans walked the Earth. And now it has been revived, bringing new fears that other potentially harmful pathogens could be released by the thawing tundra of Siberia.

The virus, which has been dubbed Pithovirus sibericum after the Greek ‘pithos, meaning a large amphora, is infectious to amoebas but does not appear harmful to human cells. It was found in a 100-foot-deep sample of permanently frozen soil taken from coastal tundra in Chukotka, near the East Siberian Sea, and the detailed findings have just been released in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

Exploration of the Siberian permafrost is expected to increase as it is thought to contain thirty percent of the world’s oil reserves, gold deposits and other key minerals. There is therefore a danger that viruses which humans have never encountered before, and have no immunity to, could emerge from the ice.

“The revival of viruses that are considered to have been eradicated, such as smallpox, whose replication process is similar to that of Pithovirus, is no longer limited to science fiction,” said Professor Jean-Michel Claverie, from the National Centre of Scientific Research, who revived the virus with Chantal Abergel, his fellow researcher and wife. “The risk that this scenario could happen in real life has to be viewed realistically.”

But perhaps the most ground-breaking aspect of the research is the fact that it doesn’t resemble any other virus known on Earth. Modern viruses are tiny and have only a few genes. But Pithovirus sibericum contains an incredible 500 genes, placing it in a new category of viral giant, a family known as Megaviridae. “Sixty percent of its gene content doesn’t resemble anything on Earth,” Dr Abergel said.

In a radio interview broadcast on BBC Radio 4's Today programme, Professor Claverie explained that the recently discovered giant virus has been made out of different genetic material than that which is currently known, suggesting it is without any “common history”.

“When we find more and more of those giant viruses it seems to point to some kind of multiple origin of life other than only a single one because they are made of totally different genetic material in a way and so we really wonder where that is coming from. We don’t see any trace of common history”

The implications are huge – if life has “multiple origins” what are they? And where are they from?  (VN: we get the answer to that one, then we have the answer to the RH neg origins)
