  1. Interesting. But have you checked what happened after the challenge was proposed? Did anyone accept the challenge? I would be cautious about a 1.5 million award: is it a honest offer, not a bogus one? Does the person/organization have this kind of money? Who will evaluate the scientific proof? Etc. IOW: have you establish the seriousness of this award offer?
  2. @Pokyt is a new Staff Member and Moderator. This doesn't (yet?) appear in his profile. His profile specifies only Newbee and Unfortunately, there was no prior notice about this addition to the Staff Member and Moderator.
  3. I just got a warning. Do you know something about it? Does the Moderator @dream_weaver know? ============================================== Hi AlexL, You have been warned by Pokyt for a comment made in a topic, Reblogged:A Man Tries the 'Back-up-to-Park' Fad Reason: Warning Content: Reblogged:A Man Tries the 'Back-up-to-Park' Fad Penalty: ยท Given 0 points which will never expire. Note: Hi, Alex. Just checking in to warn you about a post that was reported. I'm not going to dock you any points or anything, but it was reported and may have been in bad taste/against the rules. Thanks! ============================================== โ€” Objectivism Online Forum
  4. I will add @whYNOT, @monart and @SpookyKitty While @whYNOTis, curiously, pro-Israel, he is anti-Ukraine and an avid consumer of Putinist propaganda. All 6 are, possibly, also Trump and conspiracy theories sympathisers. I did not ask them about 9/11 and moon landing, though... ๐Ÿ˜
  5. Be ready for attacks from @tadmjones, @Jon Letendre, @Grames - you wouldn't expect on an Objectivism site...
  6. Really good post๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘
  7. In what form are they(?) "quietly admitting Ivermectin is also a powerful anti-cancer agent"? By publishing that article on the nlm.nih.gov site? This site has the following disclaimer: "As a library, NLM provides access to scientific literature. Inclusion in an NLM database does not imply endorsement of, or agreement with, the contents by NLM or the National Institutes of Health". If not on nlm.nih.gov, then where are they(?) "quietly admitting etc."?
  8. Indeed, Christine Massey, has done that and continues to do so, e.g., for measles, and received same or equivalent "no records found". Just to double check: is this measles virus one about whose existence Christine Massey is certain - and, therefore, the query should have been positive? As I understand, measles virus is among the non-existent viruses, in Massey's view. So, no, Christine Massey, has NOT done the test-run I was talking about. Besides, @DavidOddenalready showed that such queries will always return a negative result and, therefore, Christine Massey proved nothing except her incompetence or, rather, bad faith.
  9. OK, thanks. Now: what about Christine Massey's claim"Virology is not a science..."? You did not object to this @monart's quote...
  10. No, it seems that I didn't. Can you please explain? (I do know what "bs" is, though.๐Ÿ˜)
  11. Oh, you are a virology professional ! Nice ! Too bad that, according to Christine Massey, M.Sc., "Virology is not a science, [it is] made for pandemics and vaccines". Which is only understandable, because viruses do not exist๐Ÿ˜
  12. Like mass inoculation in an effected[?] population during ... ? Are you capable to distinguish a science, virology, from [forced] mass inoculation, which is politics? "Virology practices" I was mentioning are research and laboratory practices and standards. But you understood this very well...
  13. There should be thousands of scientific publications about the search for SARS-CoV-2, with varying levels of quality. An identical response of "No record found" from 220 different searches (assuming the lady's account is true๐Ÿ˜) should have raised concerns among experienced scientists. This unanimous result suggests that there was not a single scientific publication claiming, albeit falsely, to have correctly identified SARS-CoV-2. This is quite remarkable! On the other hand, given the claim that the existence of SARS-CoV-2 is a hoax orchestrated by those in power, one would expect to see a near-unanimous "Record found" response. If I were Christine Massey, M.Sc., I would have felt compelled to investigate the entire process, from the formulation of my query to the search procedures for archival records to the evaluation of the responses. I would have conducted an end-to-end probe, a "calibration test" of sorts. I would have submitted the same query but about another virus whose existence I was certain of, to see if I received predominantly positive responses. The remarkably unanimous outcome reported by C. Massey could be attributed to the specific wording of her query. For instance, CM's requirements for an acceptable answer may have been internally contradictory or not aligned with established virology practices. A clue in this direction comes from a comment by one of the respondents to CM's inquiry [see here]: Indeed, C. Massey's query was phrased as follows: Could the question have been carefully crafted to ensure that the only honest answer was "No records found"? Would a conspiracy-minded individual engage in such tactics? Who can know for sure? ๐Ÿ˜‰
  14. Therefore, they fabricate epidemics and amass wealth through fraudulent means. This was the full title of the 2007 edition. The augmented July 2020 edition is titled VIRUS MANIA: Corona/COVID-19, Measles, Swine Flu, Cervical Cancer, Avian Flu, SARS, BSE, Hepatitis C, AIDS, Polio. How the Medical Industry Invents Epidemics, Making Billion-Dollar Profits At Our Expense. From the book description: Therefore I urge you to refrain from citing this book as evidence for any claim. It only subverts its credibility. About There are at least dozens of articles documenting the isolation, purification and identification of SARS-CoV-2, published in the leading peer-reviewed journals. Just google isolating SARS-CoV-2 virus
  15. The AI bot doesn't simply say yes, but also provides references; Christine Massey says she asked and says that she received only "No Records Found". Christine Massey also says "Virology is not a science, [it is] made for pandemics and vaccines". (BTW, the exact arguments you are providing appear in the article The shocking research if Christine Massey on the site YogaEsoteric, among other๐Ÿ˜) Maybe, however e.g. this of the 4 cited articles is titled "SARS-CoV-2 Production, Purification Methods and UV Inactivation for Proteomics and Structural Studies", has "Purification" in its title... But if you claim that the study described did not respect the virology standards required to warrant the conclusion that SARS-CoV-2 was thus isolated, then you should substantiate this claim. The onus of proof is on you because I only said "maybe - just maybe - there are records that document the isolation, purification, and identification of SARS-CoV-2", but you were affirmative.
  16. Here is what Bard AI bot says (I know, I know!): Q: Was the isolation, purification, and identification of SARS-CoV-2 documented? Where? Bard: Having had bad previous experiences with AI bots, I insisted: Q: Please double check the above info. Bard: Therefore, maybe - just maybe - there are records that document the isolation, purification, and identification of SARS-CoV-2. I also verified the existence of (2 out of 4) of the cited articles and they do exist indeed.
  17. Placing was precise, but did not correspond to reality. The alternatives are better.
  18. "Placing"? Is this the exact wording of your understanding of the facts?
  19. Gus Van Horn's comment is about pros and cons of back-up-to-park. It does not follow from it that Gus "cannot drive a car". Changing the subject to Ayn Rand is sneaky. Your comment: is not morally neutral. I did not draw board moderator and owner's attention over the comment you are citing ("Someday, in a month or so [...]"). It was over a different comment.
  20. Oh, your initial comment - about "Ayn Rand couldn't drive a car" - was in fact about ME not being able to drive a car! OK.๐Ÿ˜
  21. I am challenging the relevance of your post for the topics' subject. But maybe you simply don't know what the hint at "lynching Negroes" means? Then read this.
  22. With some context: "their intellectual betters" means also poor, also whites, but who are hardworking and less frequently racist. Ayn Rand's detractors love taking her words out of context, while knowing that in her writings every word is important.
