I plan additional follow up, but for now, I just want to note that it is symptomatic of the cliquish and unethical and actually unscientific nature, paradoxically, of most of academia. Frankly, this is such a surprise to me, as my major professor, Dr. Loren Snyder, would have corrected this error as would I. I simply do not understand why, as multiple folks have told me, this is now the norm.

Because money.

And like "Golden Silkworms" addresses at the start, the entire state of scientific funding and publishing is completely and entirely ethically bankrupt.

Isn't experimental evolution precisely the relevant field for this question? It comes down to whether the virus emerged through natural evolution in the wild or artificial evolution in the lab. Someone with expertise in the capabilities of evolution would be able to shed light on which scenario is most likely to explain the virus' origin.

I am starting to see what you mean when you say your work was plagiarized. It does look like there is a concerted effort by the powers that be to control the narrative around the lab leak by creating their own 'lab leak' theorists.

It's also not right that they bring up your past. Completely irrelevant to the question at hand, and smacks of they have something to hide so they dodge the question with irrelevant accusations.

Yeah I've been working on a longer piece about the cover-up and the government's obvious involvement hiring private citizens to help with the misdirection, but it was getting pretty long so I figured I'd split this academic part off into it's own after that batshit crazy testimony.

"Serial passage" has always been the key, it creates pseudo-natural evolution that's hard to distinguish, unless you look hard - which we did.

Just yeah at this point the die have very much been cast, all that's really going to be left is picking-up the pieces... not really fun to write about.

Looking forward to those pieces. I've been following @Daoyu15 on X. Genetic research and seeker of truth. I started asking about LAV and he started following me. Any idea who this guy is? He does so many threads it's difficult to tell is he is white hat or just another rat.

Shoot sorry for the late reply, got lost in the holiday shuffle!! And yeah Daoyu seems to know his technical stuff, but i can't tell if he's really autistic or just being an asshole, but he's never responded to any of my assertions at all, and just waves his hands and brings up tangential stuff.

Any thoughts on H7N9? Presents much like C19 & orig H1N1. Same rats. https://www.cidrap.umn.edu/dual-use-research/scientists-air-topics-h7n9-gain-function-research

Yeah none of those GoF experiments should be happening at all, utter madness juicing these viruses up.

Since in the real world, we know that avian influenzas don't infect anyone past the farm workers who are in constant contact with the birds, and it takes five discrete waves of infection for the viral swarm to build up enough to both gain its FCS and become fully pathogenic in humans.

But the workers don't go home and transmit the virus on to their families, probably possible if they have HIV or something, but it hasn't been documented because that's not how viruses propagate zoonotically - it takes a ton of exposure from a lot of sick hosts over a lot of time to jump from one species to another, and when the virus hits the new species, it won't be anywhere near acclimated enough to transmit to another host of the same new species.

SARS and MERS have no demonstrated animal hosts, basically every enigmatic viral outbreak in modern history can be linked to live-attenuated vaccine trials or engineered highly-pathogenic strains like SARS or MERS leaking out before they were attenuated down into LAVs.

Well, NIT article cites 6 waves in China. 2 US vax trials 2017-2020 for a bug that isn't infecting anyone in US. How odd. Kawaoka did a LAV back in 2015.

And the WHO seems concerned that it should be in the 2024 flu vax. https://www.nih.gov/news-events/news-releases/h7n9-influenza-vaccine-clinical-trials-begin

These people are evil.

The Chinese aren’t the only ones who steal intellectual property. You have a right to be angry. 😡 I hope your expose is widely read.

Lol. Comedy gold. "You remained silent, because you're some combination of stupid and spineless." And then when that "Good German" Sherlock so predictably referenced your past incarceration, I thoroughly, THOROUGHLY, I say, enjoyed your rejoinder of "Yes, because being involved with a teenage girl is definitely in the same moral universe as millions and millions of innocent dead people." Touché.

I suspect much of Sherlock's inability to grok what an unctuous monster he is by his silence and failure to champion the truth when he has a moral obligation to do so, is explained by his declaring he's an "ardent atheist" (ardent -- lol), which is followed by a litany of the most self-serving virtual signaling imaginable (oh, he's so concerned by all the injustice in the world that he can't do a damned thing about except support some politicians). He fears no judgment from his Creator for failing to do what is right. (But God will not hold him blameless. Proverbs 24:12) He proudly emphasized how he pulled himself up from the working class and is now "fairly successful" at a top university. He has no intention of jeopardizing his comfortable little life, despite his Serenity Prayer asking for "the courage to change the things [he] can". Yep. Spineless.

No surprise that Sherlock would be a "willing executioner" to protect such a financially rewarding position in life and to fit in with his urbane colleagues, and even awkwardly attempt to defend one (blatant sucking up to Relman). Sherlock needs to have a midnight visit from the equivalent of Marley's ghost, or he, too, will end up wearing the chains he forged in life.

Thanks so much for the awesome comment, really really means a lot to know that at least someone is out there listening and on the same page.

Because yeah, I imagine you've noticed no one other than family leaves comments here, I'm dead to my past life. So it's hard, really hard, but comments like this provide a much, much, much needed bit of fuel to keep me going and chugging along with this.

And yeah there's no difference at all between atheism and fundamentalist religion, different sides same coin. Anyone certain about eternity and all this ineffable stuff is a big fucking dickhead, a lesson everyone is learning together to some extent.

The Nazi stuff is so clear now too, I felt like I was a little early with "Welcome to Mengele's Laboratory," but at this point it's become clear I was spot-on.

The entire institution of tenured scientists and fancy asshole academics who think it's their right to site alongside the right hand of God and no one else's - yeah all that's gotta go.
