I find the rumor to be a bit ridiculous but may have some foundation in actuality. However, being an analytical and genuine mind, I do not like to jump to conclusions or accept things without substantial facts.
There are so many theories as to how the HIV virus originated that developed to AIDS. In fact, some say it came from chimpanzees (I am not sure if they meant to say that scientists vaccinated the species experimentally from Africa or actually used the chimpanzees to makeup vaccines), and then as a scientific experiment performed on unqualified Americans during the reign of slavery (African American/homosexuals). I want to believe that no sane human being would intentionally unleash this acute epidemic that knows no boundaries (age, race, gender, or religion). Could it be one of those cases where the Americans were testing their new scientific devices on those they do not considered as one of theirs? I do not know!
I know how the Americans used to be; where Blacks or African (however people preferred to be called) were just a mere unwanted color to them that they used our people to do things that even a dog should not be doing. Which takes me back to the "Tuskegee Syphilis Study," and that is more evidentially (confessed and tried) solid to condemn since it was documented and proven to be factual.
I am going to give them the benefit of the doubt with this one until a more factual proof is given.
Ultimately, it is my believe that prophecies are being fulfilled where deadly plagues will infest the earth—HIV Aids is just the beginning of what is yet to come accordingly to the infallible Bible.
