    I think the problem has more to do with how they say it. If you ask people if they think COVID was "made in a lab", most people, including myself, would think it is very possible. They were probably thinking like me when I first…

    There has been bio-weapon research in the past. As far as I know, all states (nations) stopped doing it years ago. I suppose China might be doing it secretly. But here is the thing about bio-weapons: you always make one with an…

    anti-Chinese sentiment makes the "escaped from Chinese lab" hypothesis popular, and it is difficult to disprove. But it does not seem likely.

    Whereas the "genetically engineered in a Chinese lab"…

    No, it's not made by humans, unless we are talking about state sponsored multi billion project to kill a good part of the world including your own people. The carrier is mutated as well which excludes human construction as this…

    Something more energetic than D2O recombination, with stranger reaction results, definately seems to have happened.

    (Quote from Ahlfors)


    This paper is nonsense. The energy release from cold fusion has often exceeded the limits of recombination and other chemical effects by factors ranging from 1,000 to 10,000. The authors claim these results are mistakes, but their…

    This is a critical point. There are two kinds of immunity: with a vaccine, and naturally acquired.

    The first vaccines were developed in the mid-1930s, but as I recall, they were not common until the 1980s. See:

    The French word "enquête" has been badly translated in "investigation" while here it means "poll" or "survey". To know when and where the conference should happen.

    He has an engineering degree. He should know better. I see he went to Cornell, so he really should know better. But he also went to Sidwell Friends high school, so what can you expect? Tisk, tisk.
