people should really share this video…

are we evolving the virus through outdoor activity like protesting??

What do you make of the RmYN02 hinting at natural occurence of amino acid insertion at the furin site? https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7211627/

Virologists know that if this pandemic were caused by a lab leak the repercussions for their field of research would be severe. That scares them.

If Peter Dashic were to suffer dire consequences pending the ultimate findings – then at the other end of this, what of Media moguls and high-tech elites censoring a groundswell of physician reports of anecdotal efficacy regarding prophylactic and early treatment with the HCQ cocktail. Dr Harvey Risch, from Yale School of Public Health, said if we’d had a more liberal Hydroxychloroquine policy in this country one half to three quarters of those who have died in America would not be dead”. Might we have some Nuremberg style trials for these non-essentials?

This is an extraordinarily irresponsible podcast by Bret Weinstein, someone who should definitely know better. In a world where conspiracy theories have not only become rampant but threaten our very existence as a species–MUCH more so than any pandemic because they are viruses of the mind with an R-not orders of magnitude greater than for any biological virus–it is absolutely incumbent on any perceived authority figure, in this case a member of the self-proclaimed "intellectual dark web", to continuously and repeatedly remind listeners that this podcast essentially is a nuanced scientific criticism of laboratory safety practices (and lack of worldwide enforcement) and should NOT BE CONFLATED with debunked conspiracy theories claiming the entire global pandemic was the design of evildoers.

The vast majority of persons watching this are only going to walk away telling their friends that even the best intellectuals out there agree with them that the virus was man-made, most likely by liberal commie lizard Illuminati in cahoots with Chinese Illuminati (or some similar crackpot theory which has now become mainstream). None of this helps matters of the world today. You might argue that you have no obligation to "repeatedly remind" anyone that you are NOT saying the virus was manufactured by design to hurt people–because we certainly have very strong scientific evidence that it was NOT–but that argument would be just a weak cop-out given the backdrop of the world today. In fact, I only recall one instance buried half-way through the hours long podcast where you even make this point.

Compare the ACE2 receptor's sequence of both the human lung tissue cultures used in wuhan lab against infected patients who have had the most adverse reactions.
I'll bet they are very similar.

Its a mutated virus in the labs for sure.

If you're interested in how easy it is to create an artificial furin site cleavage, it's been done before here for example: https://jvi.asm.org/content/89/15/8077

So important to take Covid seriously and its origin from a lab as does Dr. Chris Martinson at
Peak Prosperity and Ralph Nader on his Radio Hour. I was surprised that Joe Rogan and his guest, Eric Weinstein, dismissed Covid as just another flu virus. Many thanks to you both !

Why don't studies disclose Sarscov is a select agent?

natural selection / evolution vs creation. Parallels…we attach emotionally to concepts / words. Different matter, but similar idea. Thus the hardened opinions. "We" don't really know how emotions work though. Too much caffeine…too much IQ, not enough EQ

Great discussion guys. So much fascinating information, even though I did not catch all that was discussed. Of course, we need to learn from this (if true), but it still begs the question, why not point the finger. In other industries, people get fined and locked up for such negligence. If released on purpose, that obviously opens a much different and serious can of worms that goes beyond this video.

I remember MISSION IMPOSSIBLE 2, Tom Cruise saved us from the Chimera. I think the possibility of a leak from a lab was showcased in a block buster 🎥

Wow, there is basically no science to back up any claims they are making, it's all presented as a 'what is more likely' scenario. That is not science, and based on the information provided in this video it's possible the virus occurred naturally. Neither of these guys have a PhD on the subject; we're clearly in the range of requiring a PhD to understand the subject, so their hypothesis and speculations don't hold any ground.

My limited knowledge on the subject can debunk many of their 'questions'. They talk about the bats being native to a territory that is far away from Wuhan, so how did the virus originate there. Answer: the bat was transported to the wet market (duh). Q: how would a bat get in contact with the other animal (rat species, can't remember the exact name) when they don't share any territory? A: they came in contact at a wet market.

I'm not saying these guys are wrong, there is certainly legit speculation about the origins, but they are presenting a bad argument and are not experts in the field. I'll continue to listen to the experts that come from many different countries that provide verifiable science. And no, the scientific community from multiple countries are not conspiring against Trump, if you think that you are delusional.
