The Viral Delusion (Episodes 2–5)
Paradigm Shift Pictures
In these episodes, we take an eye-opening tour of inconvenient facts in medical history. Here are some quick examples. It was decided long ago that bacteria cause anthrax and that is still the prevailing theory. However, some who are diagnosed with anthrax have the bacteria in question, and some don’t. Some who are not sick have the bacteria, and some don’t. Experts don’t seem to be bothered by these inconvenient facts.
In the case of polio, scientists couldn’t even pretend to find any bacteria involved, so they attributed “polio” to another cootie called a virus. To prove polio was contagious, they injected diseased spinal cord tissue from one monkey into the head of another monkey. When the monkey victim died, experts decided this proved something about contagion. They conveniently changed the definition of polio when the vaccine came out, so it looked like the vaccine worked.
Tom Cowan, MD, outlines the procedure for isolating the measles virus. You have to follow their method closely. It takes a lot of education to be this stupid. First, the properly educated expert immerses a throat swab from someone diagnosed with measles in a mixture of milk, bovine amniotic fluid, beef embryo extract and horse serum. All of these things are rich sources of genetic material. Vero (kidney) cells and antibiotics are then added, and the whole thing breaks down into genetic material. “Why are we doing this?” Never mind why. Just do it. Then, magically, you can extract DNA from “just the measles virus” in this mess. John Enders won a Nobel prize for this kind of science.
Centuries ago, there was a plague in Iceland, which modern science blames on rats even though there were no rats in Iceland until about two hundred years later. Maybe there were time-traveling rats. Or maybe just the cooties from rats traveled back in time.
The inconvenient facts associated with the Black Death in Europe are especially interesting. Again, rats are the favorite scapegoat despite an awkward lack of evidence. There were a lot of things going on in northern Europe during that time. Eyewitness accounts speak of badly polluted air and water, earthquakes, weather anomalies and chaos. No mention of rats. A comet passing close to Earth left the atmosphere choked with debris. As physical evidence from tree rings and ice cores confirms, that area of the planet was severely compromised. Tree rings were much smaller than average, and ice cores were full of ammonium. Crops failed and famine followed. Between unbreathable air and famine, most either died or left.
Then there is the Spanish flu. It occurred just after powerful radio transmitters came online. The condition also was seven times more likely to strike vaccinated military personnel than unvaccinated civilians. Individuals overdosed with aspirin were also much more likely to die than those who avoided the drug. A well-designed study failed to prove the most contagious disease in recent history was. . . contagious. In fact, it actually proved Spanish flu was not contagious.
Moving to the later part of the twentieth century, we have AIDS proposed as being caused by a virus called HIV even though many “HIV-positive” people were not sick and many AIDS patients did not test positive for HIV. During the early days of AIDS, we were informed we were all going to die. How many times have the news media said that? How many times have they been right? The disease threatened to disappear several times but scientists rescued it from obscurity by redefining the disease to include more and more symptoms. Worldwide, the symptoms usually resembled slow starvation. Coincidentally, I’m sure, the disease was most prevalent among the malnourished. In the U.S., heavy drug users were one of the hardest-hit demographics. That changed when the drug-users themselves figured it out and quit using.
There are many other examples of this clown science. After watching this series, you may wonder whether there is any intelligent life at all on this planet. Me, too. How did we go so wrong so badly and so often? I think Einstein was right when he said the difference between genius and stupidity is that genius has its limits. The thumb is UP for this video series.
