I’m not going to post about COVID anymore. There’s no reason for me to spend my time convincing people not to take these vaccines, as I did throughout 2021. The writing is on the wall by now. The problem hasn’t ended either, excess mortality in 2022 is higher than in 2020 and 2021 and we just had a massive wave from the most brain-damaging COVID variant seen so far, BA.5.
You interfered in the evolutionary dynamics of a sarbecovirus, leading to massive unprecedented waves of infection in the middle of summer and we’ll now find out what the long term repercussions will be. I think it will look like accumulating brain damage and immune damage leading to “mysterious” excess mortality, but time will tell, assuming you’ll still have the cognitive capacity to recognize what happened of course.
But the reason I’m done with this subject is because people don’t really care about understanding any of this. You can see here how much success I’ve had explaining that SARS2 doesn’t have bits of HIV genetically edited into it. Some people just want the substack dopamine, some of them are in it for the money (“subscribe today and I will tell you how to cure ALS, an incurable disease”), the audience wants to hear how the vaccinated are all about to drop dead and the vaccinated have ironically moved on with their lives.
What nobody wants is to be falsified. I’d be happy for people to go about falsifying my claims. I don’t mind Berenson disagreeing with me, what I do mind is when he calls something “vanishingly unlikely” without offering an argument or any data to back of that claim. But if you can’t get people to see why a paper that was retracted after two days is bullshit, then your hopes of convincing them of anything else are pretty slim too.
All I want is to understand how nature functions. That’s what interests me. But now I’ll move on to greener pastures.
