Virus that 'makes humans more stupid' discovered

Prophecy Sign:  Pestilence, plagues and disease


So does it seem to you that people are a lot more stupid than they use to be?  Could be you're not imagining things and that indeed a good portion of the general populace seems dumber than a post, (how else to explain back to back Presidential wins by Barack Obama).   Seems there is a virus floating about that has the ability to affect cognitive reasoning.  But not to worry, scientists might have a pill for that.  Scientists are working on a method of making you smarter which could included simply popping yet another pill, (multitude of side effects to be named later in the infomercials).

In the meantime, diseases of all stripes are making their way through general populations all over the world.  Pestilences in various places as the bible predicted.

There will be great earthquakes, famines and pestilences in various places, and fearful events and great signs from heaven. Luke 21:11 NIV

Virus that 'makes humans more stupid' discovered
A virus that infects human brains and makes us more stupid has been discovered, according to scientists in the US. The algae virus, never before observed in healthy people, was found to affect cognitive functions including visual processing and spatial awareness. Scientists at Johns Hopkins Medical School and the University of Nebraska stumbled upon the discovery when they were undertaking an unrelated study into throat microbes. Surprisingly, the researchers found DNA in the throats of healthy individuals that matched the DNA of a virus known to infect green algae.

A pill to make you smart? Scientists' breakthrough in unlocking the brain's potential by returning it to child-like state
It sounds like something out of a film, but scientists may have discovered a way to make you smarter – by reverting the brain to a “plastic” child-like state. Researchers at Stanford University experimented by interfering with PirB, a protein expressed in animal brain cells that allows skills to be recalled but which also hampers the ability to learn new skills, and realised they could disrupt the receptor’s regular function, allowing the brain to make faster connections.
