Coronavirus: Why can’t we trust a single statistic on the pandemic?

Multiple studies find that up to half of reported hospitalizations for coronavirus aren’t actually for coronavirus or are for cases with mild symptoms that likely don’t require hospitalization, calling into question panic-inducing reporting on the issue and raising questions of massive fraud.  In response, the public health experts claim this means the vaccine is working. … Continue reading Coronavirus: Why can’t we trust a single statistic on the pandemic?

Coronavirus: Yes, the government was funding exactly the kind of research that could lead to the pandemic and Dr. Fauci lied about it

New documents unearthed by The Intercept reveal that the government was funding gain-of-function research to create mutant viruses that would more aggressively infect human beings and storing tens of thousands of viruses in unsafe labs.  Dr. Fauci lied to Congress about what we were doing, and our intelligence community seems to have no clue either. … Continue reading Coronavirus: Yes, the government was funding exactly the kind of research that could lead to the pandemic and Dr. Fauci lied about it

Coronavirus: The Director of National Intelligence completely punts on the origin of the virus with a whitewashed report

According to the government, we’ll never know the origins of coronavirus unless China miraculously decides to cooperate.  The two-page report issued last week contains nothing of value, no new insights, some sloppy thinking, and bad science.  It’s enough to make one think they know the truth, but are afraid to say it. Earlier this year,… Continue reading Coronavirus: The Director of National Intelligence completely punts on the origin of the virus with a whitewashed report

The pressure to “act” on climate change is more intense than the warming and the weather

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change issues its latest report as leading climate alarmists claim we have “zero years” left to avoid catastrophic effects, but what do the report and analysis actually say?  And why can’t we just focus on capturing carbon in the atmosphere instead of ever more intrusive and complex schemes no one… Continue reading The pressure to “act” on climate change is more intense than the warming and the weather

The oceans are dying and, of course, it’s your fault

Scientists are very, very concerned about “dead zones” in the ocean, areas of low oxygen that can kill every creature in their path.  We’re tracking one right now off the coast of Oregon, even as others around the world are shrinking.  We know they’re caused by fertilizer running off into the sea, but instead are… Continue reading The oceans are dying and, of course, it’s your fault

Coronavirus: The insane hubris underlying our entire response

We’ve never successfully controlled an airborne virus, cured or developed an effective vaccine for a coronavirus or the flu, or even successfully modeled anything as complex as a spreading, mutating virus, and yet we still continue to persist in the fantasy we can, despite all evidence. As the Delta surge continues and public health experts… Continue reading Coronavirus: The insane hubris underlying our entire response

Decoding consciousness: What can dreams tell us about how our minds work while awake?

Everyone dreams, every night, entering a strange, semi-conscious state where we experience a world created by our own minds, but our judgement, language, and senses are impaired.  No one knows where dreams come from or why.  That doesn’t mean they can’t tell us a lot about the inner workings of the mind and consciousness itself.… Continue reading Decoding consciousness: What can dreams tell us about how our minds work while awake?

Meet Trofim Lysenko, a Soviet biologist who crushed dissent, jailed scientists, and starved 30 million people

Mr. Lysenko’s tragic story is the ultimate history lesson and cautionary tale about the dangers of state-sanctioned science and the need for open debate.  America today is not Soviet Russia 75 years ago, but this doesn’t mean there aren’t disturbing parallels as the US government teams up with social media and telecommunications providers to censor… Continue reading Meet Trofim Lysenko, a Soviet biologist who crushed dissent, jailed scientists, and starved 30 million people

Decoding consciousness: What computers can and cannot tell us about our own minds

An engineering professor believes consciousness is not computable, as in it works fundamentally different from our current mathematics, but is that really the case?  Computers, in fact, have a lot to teach us about our own minds, just not in the way most people think.  Read on for a few musings on what makes us… Continue reading Decoding consciousness: What computers can and cannot tell us about our own minds

What’s behind the coronavirus lab-leak theory and how can we prove it once and for all?

As new information emerges from USA Today and other sources, we can consider the evidence on both sides and how actual scientific debate can lead us to the truth.  Contrary to even current progressive opinion, there was never any real evidence that coronavirus came from a bat.  Instead, conjecture and opinion masqueraded as facts, perhaps… Continue reading What’s behind the coronavirus lab-leak theory and how can we prove it once and for all?
