SCOOP: I obtained a whistleblower complaint about Stanford’s COVID-19 study.— Stephanie M. Lee (@stephaniemlee) May 15, 2020
Turns out JetBlue’s founder, a critic of the economic shutdowns, helped fund it.
And John Ioannidis and others allegedly ignored internal scientists’ concerns about the test. https://t.co/dExNhZTVX0
The coronavirus pandemic has been like Christmas for conspiracy theorists and truthers who are chasing clicks and grifting off the crisis. As their record shows, the “truth” is the last thing that matters to these people. They are even worse than the mainstream media. Alex Jones can go from ranting about the Chinese virus one day to how the globalists are plotting an alien invasion the next day.
Greg Cochran is also tired of these people:
“Imagine that astronomers discovered a new comet, one that was an exact duplicate of the Chixculub object and was going hit the Earth in 30 years. Which would, if uninterrupted, exterminate the human race.
Let us also suppose that the numbers work out so that a hearty effort, something like the level of US war spending in WWII, but for decades, could stop it, by making and delivering enough hydrogen bombs to alter the orbit . We would need to design and build Orion ships, be frantically mining uranium ( and thorium), breeding plutonium and U-233, using lithium for bombs rather than batteries, like God intended. We’d be frantically building up heavy industry, making steel and building rockets, writing codes modeling hot dense matter rather than handling social media. …
We’d have guys writing long-winded articles pointing out that Ptolemy’s model of the solar system was wrong, so how can anyone believe those that JPL puts out today ?( hat tip to SJ Gould and Cordelia Fine).
We’d have septuagenarians pointing out that by the time it hit, they’d probably be dead, so why should they care? We’d have philosophy professors arguing that the future doesn’t really ‘exist’.
People would make and share these kinds of falsehoods, creating their own information ecology, one made up fresh out of whole cloth – except for a few traditionalists, flat-Earthers and followers of Velikovsky. One full of lies obvious to everybody that ever studied the Kepler problem.. everybody who is anybody !
We’d have demented billionaires subsidizing hacks – hacks that told us whatever their paymasters wanted us to hear, told us that 100 million megatons wasn’t really that bad, or that it was probably our time and that in the long run good things, like the rise of the mammals, could flow from such a cleansing. We should ’embrace’ cosmic collisions, as a creative force. Some of the billionaires would end up believing the lies they paid for !
The Washington Post would warn us that fears of cosmic extermination might fuel racism and xenophobia. The New York Times would worry about the world being saved by the wrong people – people of color would not be playing much of a role, of course.
Still, we might manage to get the job done. There are ways.”
There is a vast market for hysterical nonsense out there.
In Plandemic, the most laughable claim is that wearing a mask “activates” your own coronavirus. If that were the case, miners and welders should have been among the first victims.
Note: BTW, it turns out that the John Ioannidis study that was trumpeted all over the internet was funded by JetBlue founder David Neeleman.
