Young earth creation science ministry Answers in Genesis ran an article in the December 2003 issue of Creation Magazine, in which they discuss the Ebola virus. The article makes comparisons with the Old Testament's laws concerning cleanliness, and how that this is a direct indication that God understood the problems inherent with disease. The article was the featured article on the Creation Ministries International website on 10 April 2006.1
This "creation neutral" article (it does not address the age of the earth issue) is well written, and will be a benefit to all Christians. I agree with the author that God, the creator of mankind, understood the risks associated with disease, and this is evident in God's instructions to the Hebrews in the Old Testament law books. I encourage all to check out this article on the Creation Ministries International website (link below.

If you are not a Christian, and you have been holding out on making a decision for Christ because the Church always preached a message that was contrary to what you saw in the scientific world, then rest assured that the Bible is the inerrant Word of God, and you can believe in Christ and receive salvation, while still believing in an old earth.
