    Big-D..... Any comments? I think they've found you.
    There is quite a bit more.

    I don't understand. Isn't it just lyme disease if they tested positive for it?

    I wouldn't jump to conclusions. Bacterial outbreaks are very common throughout human history. With the increased dumping of agricultural products into water sources, bacterial pathogenicity has increased steadily.

    Note a "?" not a "." at the end of the sentence.

    My apologies, you are correct. I retract the "I wouldn't jump to conclusions" part.

    Who said the plagues won't work through a natural progressive process?

    Nobody did. Epidemic plagues are indeed a result of biological and ecological factors. However, this outbreak is most likely not a plague of epidemic proportion, but just a run-of the mill bacterial outbreak common in rural areas who receive their water from surface water sources.

    Yeah, kind of.

    I was serious about the plagues and wondered if anyone would relate it to the evolution debate.

    :D

    We are a quick one this morning, aren't we? :)
