    Wow, actually making a prediction based on the theory. That's good, now it can be tested. I am suprised about the statement that the first cases of Mad Cow were found near Whitesands; I thought the first case was detected in England.

    That's because CWD (chronic wasting disease) is not the same as bovine spongiform encephalopathy, although both are what is called TSE (transmissible spongiform encephalopathy) CWD is only found in deer and elk, as far as I know.

    I notice the paper has references at the end with several references dated in 2002, last year. Well in 2002 there was already a heavy CWD outbreak in Montana and other mountain States. So the great prediction is not one, as far as I can see.

    The FBI FOIA files on animal mutilations.

    I remember reports on this starting in the early 1970s.

    This thread is from 2003 and no longer meets the posting guidelines for the forum.

    i.e. NIDS may only be used for anecdotal claims.
