I can't find the reference to a MTG quote or paraphrase of "God would never create an illness that harms people". Will someone provide a link.

She didn't say that.

"I don’t buy it because I don’t believe in evolution. I don’t believe in that type of so-called science. I don’t believe in evolution, I believe in God."

That was her quote responding to a question from Bannon on his podcast when he asked about her stance on gain-of-function research. Which is an odd response but whatever.

So like everything on Twitter, she was taken out of context. Which was not really not needed since her comments were kind of out there on their own.

Since most gain-of-function research isn't talking about macroevolution, it seems like a fair bet it was all evolution but sure. There is a legit debate going on about gain-of-function research but the word crap sandwich she spoke on Bannon's podcast kind of misses the mark on that.

But the only thing she said about God was that she believes in Him so the tweet was disingenuous and now I feel silly for laughing at it.

This was legit funny.
One thing for sure, deadly viruses only existed outside the Garden of Eden. We got ourselves into this mess a long time ago :lol:

A family member with a PhD from UNC, that's done a lot of cancer research said its extremely easy to create such a viruses in a lab with genetic sequencing technologies and our understanding of infection protein domains of known viruses. The techniques are used all the time. They, UNC have spliced genes in the lab and combined genetic elements from one species into another using viruses. To put sequencing data into perspective, chimps and humans have 99% sequence similarity. and clearly are different. There are so many base pairs, 1% difference really matters.

It's finally here, a meaningful debate about human existence. Greene vs. Ocasio-Cortez. After this debate, all the mysteries of life will be stunningly crystal clear for all to see.

Carlson said if she's right a couple people need to go to jail.
Carlson? You mean Tucker Carlson, the same man that claims the events of January 6 are a hoax? lol

When I see police officers willingly opening barricades and doors in a federal building (which can only be opened from the inside), I think its safe for people to question it. But hey you are are right about the shootings and burning cars...oh wait wrong season. That was peaceful :) .

I just watched Lara Logan's 2 part series on NSA spying. They should know exactly what occurred. Wish we could trust them to be trustworthy. I really hope Trump, DeSantis, Pompeo and Scott get to the WH in 2024.

Fox Nation is worth the money.

I have enjoyed it, although I have not been able to dig into much. Tucker’s Chicago special was pretty unreal. Hard to imagine a place in the continental U.S. could be so lawless.

Tucker is an entertainer and shouldn't be looked upon as anymore than that. His inaccurate reporting on the military and its leadership are a big enough reason for me to doubt anything he reports on.

None of these prime time cable news "anchors" should be taken seriously. It is always evident when people are sourcing prime time cable news personalities. Rarely are those programs based in reality.

You are correct that no one should take them seriously. Nonetheless, the military industrial complex is nothing to be rooting for, although it is proudly acceptable to do so in this country without any questioning.

I took Dr Yan seriously. I'm sure Mike Pompeo does as well.

Please tell us what Dr Yan said that isn't true. Her credentials are legit. Her background matches. Her virology research is not new to anyone, she's been at it a while. You really should listen to the entire interview. Hopfully politics will not interfere with finding the truth about this Frankenstein that's been unleashed. :(

Here’s a good summary, but if you’re unfamiliar with the academic process of publishing a paper, let me tell you: don’t trust the conclusions of a paper that hasn’t been submitted for peer review. It seems like once the scientific community was actually able to review her papers, they tore them to shreds as hot garbage with questionable methods, citations, and funding.

But you didn’t answer my question: John Titor, legit? Y/N?

Do you take CNN seriously? 😆

The persuader in chief says to not believe any of them.

I do trust Mike Pompeo. A retired military leader, graduated 1st in his at the academy. Do you?
