Not one of those images is a "real" picture of an actual virion. The one in the upper right corner is a stock image--a 3D rendering of neurons, and not a very accurate one, either.
The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

Based on Pyrrho's info I call Poe. It's witten like a Poe too. Just no. No. How could you spend 3 years researching viruses without ever seeing a picture of a virus?

Measles outbreak biggest in Wales for a decade... and spreading

Mar 23, 2013: The current outbreak of measles is the biggest Wales has seen in a decade with the disease “spreading like a bush fire”, experts have warned.

Public Health Wales said that the outbreak has accelerated in recent weeks and is the biggest seen by health experts in the past ten years, with further cases being confirmed each day.

On Wednesday, the official figure soared to 316 after the number of cases in the Swansea and Neath Port Talbot areas increased by 64 in the past week alone.

But the organisation warned that if the numbers, which have been doubling every week, continue to rise at the same rate, it could reach more than 1,000 in a matter of weeks.

The predictions mean the outbreak is on the brink of becoming one the biggest in the UK in nearly 20 years.

Antivaxers claim they are "researching" the subject. As do astrologers, homoeopaths, Ken Ham, Jerome Bettis . . . Curt Schilling.

Yeah, that's one of the most endearing habits of anti-vaxxers. Calling their habit of finding anti-vaxx doumentaries on YouTube "research"

As a tangent that does not involve the softness of Tom Brady's balls, Thunderf00t's videos where he references the loon in California predicting radiation doom and gloom--that is such a "researcher." I think he even claims he has "studied" it for years. I see this stupidity in a number of fields.

Oh hell, recall L. Ron Pedophile's "expert book" on nuclear physics!

Not to mention the thousands of hours that Truthers have spent "researching" 9/11, mostly by watching Loose Change over and over again

But going to Anax's point that this seems like a Poe...in my experience there seems to be a large subset of alt-med sorts who reject the germ theory of disease entirely and this is consistent with the sort of claims they make.

Ok, the name of the person who made the post is blocked out. What is the provenance of this anyway? Does this person have a Facebook page or something so we can see that they are a real person?

It reminds me of something I came across before that turned out to be a Poe.
Some 4chan posters created these straw feminist sock puppets to say that Father's Day should be abolished because men are evil or something like that. It was almost believable and I fell for it, but I found out later that it was definitely Poes.

Are you saying Rebecca Watson and Anna Sarkesian are "Poes?"

Why not "Shellys?"

Why do you hate women, Anax?

The natural way is for most children to die in infancy.

There may be something to be said for that from a eugenic point of few, but how many would apply it to their own?

Recent science indicates that something like 70% of the DNA in your body is viral, and another 25% is bacterial. We're already complex bundles of symbiosis.
