1981 Dean Koontz Novel Predicted Virus Outbreak Originating in Wuhan

Snopes ‘investigation’ determines it to be “mostly false” despite eerie parallels.

Published

A fictional plot from a 1981 Dean Koontz novel predicted that a virus originating in Wuhan would cause a global biological pandemic, but despite the creepy similarities to real life, Snopes soon concluded after an “investigation” that the parallels were “mostly false.”

In his thriller The Eyes of Darkness, the best-selling author describes a man-made bioweapon created at a research center in Wuhan, China that is developed “to wipe out a city or a country.”

“They call the stuff ‘Wuhan-400’ because it was developed at their RDNA labs outside the city of Wuhan,” a character says in the novel.

Meanwhile, in reality, a study by scientists at the South China University of Technology in Guangzhou, China concluded that “the killer coronavirus probably originated from a laboratory in Wuhan.”

While the virus in the book is far deadlier than the coronavirus, there are several similarities.

“I will say it’s damned near perfect. Long incubation, asymptomatic spread, infectious as hell,” another character says in the book.

A Snopes investigation of the matter concluded that the claim Koontz predicted the 2020 coronavirus outbreak was “mostly false” because in his story, the virus has a 100% fatality rate.

In addition, in the original version of the book, the biological weapon was named Gorki-400 and was changed to Wuhan for later editions published after 1989.

Once again, by applying such stringent measurements to declaring the prediction “false,” Snopes has mischaracterized the issue.

Yes it is weird that Koontz accurately predicted a virus emerging out of Wuhan that would cause a global biological pandemic.

That doesn’t mean Koontz had any foreknowledge of a conspiracy, but despite Snopes’ best efforts to throw cold water on the issue, it does make his plot eerily prescient.

Meanwhile, in another book called End Of Days: Predictions And Prophecies About The End Of The World, author Sylvia Browne predicted a “pneumonia-like illness” that would sweep the world in 2020.

“In around 2020 a severe pneumonia-like illness will spread throughout the globe, attacking the lungs and the bronchial tubes and resisting all known treatments,” she wrote. “Almost more baffling than the illness itself will be the fact that it will suddenly vanish as quickly as it arrived, attack again 10 years later, and then disappear completely.”

No doubt Snopes will “investigate” that too and dismiss it completely.

11-Year-Old Black Child Made $1K Selling ‘N-Word Passes’ to White Friends at School

White parents tried to make adopted kid woke, failed.

The woke white parents of an adopted 11-year-old black child were shocked to discover that he had made over a thousand dollars selling ‘n-word passes’ to white kids at school.

A woman going by the name of ‘Mortified Mom’ told Slate that she and her husband, who are both white, adopted a 5-year-old girl called Taylor and an infant boy called Martin. The children, who are both black, are now 11 and 16-years-old.

The mother relates how “we’ve done our best to have honest, age-appropriate discussions on race, our privilege, and how messed up the systematic oppression and racism in our country is.”

Apparently, they failed.

Being the budding entrepreneur that he is, 11-year-old Martin devised an ingenious revenue-generating scheme – he would sell ‘n word passes’ to his fellow middle school students for $25-$50 a pop.

Unfortunately for Martin, his money making venture was rumbled when he tried to sell one of the passes to his sister’s friend, prompting his sister to grass him up to his parents.

“My husband and I are shocked and angry, and we don’t know what to do,” said the anguished foster mom. “Martin’s actions must have made his fellow Black classmates upset and uncomfortable, and I feel like a horrible mother and person.”

After the mom asked for advice on how to punish the child, respondents to the article suggested that the kid needs a “black man in his life” and that the money should be donated to Black Lives Matter or another “anti-racist” organization.

“That’s one way to redpill a child before high school: hand over his hard-earned money to undeserving Marxist criminals and rioters in the name fighting his own oppression,” comments Censored.tv.

Video: Screeching Woman With Tape Measure Lectures Others For Not Social Distancing

“It’s people like you that are ruining it for all of us!”

Video Screenshot

A video clip posted to TikTok shows a woman holding a tape measure screeching hysterically as she appears to be upset with beachgoers for not adhering to proper social distancing.

The woman screams something unintelligible before shouting “Fuck you! Get out of here!” at other people who appear to have gathered near a lake or a beach.

The protagonist is wildly flailing around a tape measure she is holding as a man tries to restrain her.

“It’s people like you that are ruining it for all of us!” she yells.

According to respondents on Twitter who translated comments made by the woman filming the video, the screeching lady is upset at the others for being too close and not properly social distancing.

Others suggested that the woman was upset because she was trying to “measure something” and loud music was preventing her from concentrating.

Either way, the woman filming the video says that she just wanted to have a “tranquil” day with her family.

This looks like another case of a social distancing Karens gone wild.
