The Variant Game: Fool Them Thrice…?

I tend to stay away from acknowledging variants much as it should be clear since “SARS-COV-2” was never properly purified/isolated directly from a sick host and therefore never proven to exist, that the variants of this non-existent “virus” also do not exist. The hysteria is akin to being terrified of a Word document containing random… Continue reading The Variant Game: Fool Them Thrice…?

The Reproducibility Crisis in Genomics

colorful big data pattern background

It has been known since at least 2005 that much of the scientific literature being published is fundamentally flawed, non-reproducible, and/or outright fraudulent. Relating to the (pseudo)science of virology, this crisis extends to the cell culturing techniques used to “isolate” the “virus” as well as the theoretical antibodies used as an indirect method to identify… Continue reading The Reproducibility Crisis in Genomics

“Virus” Variants or Sequencing Errors/Artefacts?

ARTEFACTS (Genomics): “In genetics a result that does not represent the true biological material or function but arises from a technical, often artificial, process. Artefacts can lead to misleading results from sequencing. To avoid giving patients incorrect results during data analysis and validation, any data that could be an artefact from the sequencing process is thoroughly investigated.” Artefact… Continue reading “Virus” Variants or Sequencing Errors/Artefacts?

Virologists: Making Conclusions Not Justified by the Data

How do virologists back up the various claims they make regarding “viruses” and their variants? Are the reports of increased virulence and transmissibility confirmed by the data? What valid scientific evidence supports the statements they make publicly? Is there any or are virologists jumping to conclusions that clearly are not justified? With all of this… Continue reading Virologists: Making Conclusions Not Justified by the Data

“Viral” Genomics: Nothing but Strings of Letters in a Data Bank

“Although all that is terrific, says Calisher, a string of DNA letters in a data bank tells little or nothing about how a virus multiplies, which animals carry it, how it makes people sick, or whether antibodies to other viruses might protect against it. Just studying sequences, Calisher says, is “like trying to say whether somebody has bad… Continue reading “Viral” Genomics: Nothing but Strings of Letters in a Data Bank

The Old Guard of Virology Warn About the Ways of the New Guard and Their Molecular Toys

In July 2001, virologist Charles Calisher, along with 13 other illustrious names in virology, wrote an open letter published in the August/Sept issue of Emerging Infectious Disease. In it, they highlighted many of the concerns the “old guard” of virology had with the “new guard.” These virologists felt that the established tried and true methods… Continue reading The Old Guard of Virology Warn About the Ways of the New Guard and Their Molecular Toys
