There’s a huge difference between dogma and critical thinking.

We must prioritise the latter.

Always.

Victorious warriors win first and then go to war, while defeated warriors go to war first and then seek to win.

Critical thinking matters

My views on viral diseases have significantly changed during the COVID™ era.

Influenced by individuals like Sam and Mark Bailey, Tom Cowan, Andy Kaufman and many more, I’ve grown pretty damn sceptical of the conventional understanding of the causes of disease.

Can you tell the difference?

To be clear, I remain open-minded and welcome counterarguments.

Because that’s in the spirit of science.

Critical thinking is about being clear and rational and rejecting dogma and ideological obstacles.

Again, can you tell the difference?

After all, it could indeed be true that viruses exist, but are merely exosomes by another name (to quote biochemist David Rasnick).

It’s dangerous to think we’ve hit the peak of scientific knowledge with nothing more to learn.

Deadly, even.

The militant ‘no virus’ types, who are certainly woke, aren’t interested in constructive discussion. They’re driven by arrogance, focused on ‘winning’ and ‘exposing’ others through power games.

I was once accused of being a ‘gatekeeper’ because I didn’t conduct an interview the way some random person on the internet wanted. We all know where such people can shove their demands.

Adapt what is useful, reject what is useless, and add what is specifically your own.

The puzzle has many pieces

Put another way, a problem with the militant no-virus brigade is that they paralyse discourse with a one-trick pony narrative as if it’s the only thing that matters.

It isn’t. 

Dismantling virology is necessary but is not sufficient.

For example, focusing only on viruses means ignoring:

You get the picture.

There are many pieces to the puzzle.

Conversation

Here’s my conversation with the wonderfully articulate Kevin Corbett (who has been on my show before).

He agrees with me.

The greatest victory is that which requires no battle.
