China’s Great Wall of Lies is Starting to Crumble…
Occam’s Razor is a principle from philosophy that states that an explanation with the fewest number of assumptions is usually correct.
So why can’t a collection of the world’s virologists and immunologists, who use the “scientific method” to study viruses, at least apply the Occam’s Razor principle as a working hypothesis to solving the question of the origin of the COVID-19 virus?
Instead, they take the “lab leak” idea off the table completely and are off pursuing other explanations.
But, the thing is, unless an animal source is found, that leaves the scientists forced to accept a conclusion that they are working feverishly to avoid. Here is a timeline that shows how it is becoming more likely that Occam’s Razor’s principle will hold true once again.
An article appearing in NATURE on February 10, 2021, noted:
“Major stones unturned’: COVID origin search must continue after WHO report, say scientists
Investigation team rules out idea that the coronavirus came from a laboratory leak, but offers two hypotheses popular in Chinese media.
First Wuhan cases
Much of the investigation centred on the early days of the outbreak in Wuhan and tried to pin down the timing of the city’s first infections. The team reviewed health records in the city and surrounding Hubei province from the second half of 2019, looking for unusual fluctuations in influenza-like illnesses and severe respiratory infections, pharmacy purchases for cold and cough medications, and deaths specifically related to pneumonia. It also retrospectively tested some 4,500 patient samples for SARS-CoV-2 viral RNA, and analysed blood samples for antibodies against the virus. The researchers found no evidence that the virus was circulating in the city before December 2019.”
Here is what POLITICO had to say on May 26, 2021:
“Facebook no longer treating ‘man-made’ Covid as a crackpot idea
Facebook’s policy tweak arrives as support surges in Washington for a fuller investigation into the origins of Covid-19.”
A narrative in flux: Facebook’s policy tweak arrives as support surges in Washington for a fuller investigation into the origins of Covid-19 after the Wall Street Journal reported that three scientists at the Wuhan Institute of Virology were hospitalized in late 2019 with symptoms consistent with the virus. The findings have reinvigorated the debate about the so-called Wuhan lab-leak theory, once dismissed as a fringe conspiracy theory.*
*Ivan here. Funny, that is exactly what many called me for suggesting last year in March that COVID-19 could have come from a lab. As Edward Snowden says, “the worst conspiracy theories are in plain sight.”
There might be another “victim” of the COVID-19 pandemic. Who, you ask?
The victim is science itself.
Politics has infected science. Statements made by scientists are supposed to be supported by facts.
In recent weeks and months, we have seen that certain aspects of the disclosures by scientists have turned out to be absolutely untrue.
Starting with the “masquerade” of “mask on, mask off,” – someone find Mr. Miyagi to settle this dispute. What about hydroxychloroquine (Plaquenil) to treat COVID-19 infected patients? Or ivermectin to both treat and prevent COVID-19? Practicing physicians manning the frontline in the fight against the virus swear by it while others dismiss it out of hand. Vitamin D and Zinc; useful or useless?
Or, as Ivan has pointed out in his article on the subject of the COVID testing procedure: are COVID tests themselves really all that valid given the amplification of the results “necessary” to get a reading?
How are the vast majority of people supposed to have confidence in Science if Science is so violently at odds with itself?
This brings us back to China and the Great Wall of Lies.
After living through (most would say “suffering” through) the COVID-19 pandemic, the world is in no mood for more “nonsense” from China.
Surely the Chinese leadership must realize that full plain and open disclosure is in their best interest.
Does China want to willingly become a “pariah nation”?
One would not think so.
The “wrath of the world” is nearly at hand. China needs to seriously re-examine its “hide the truth at all costs” policy.
Something tells me that we are being “prepared” by the media for some kind of “disclosure” that is about to happen. Why has the “pro-China” Main Stream Media done such an about-face over the past week or so?
One final thought: China’s Great Wall of Lies does not simply end if it is found that the COVID-19 virus escaped from their lab. The next line of inquiry will be what China’s response was?*
Think about travel bans on travelers to the rest of the world; think further about disclosure – even though that ship has sailed long ago.
In short, the problem with building a Great Wall of Lies is that one Truth Brick at a time, it can crumble.
*Ivan here: More importantly, I would ask, “who else was involved?” If the virus did come from a lab, did it “escape” or was it let out? Why?
If you look from the top-down, it’s not a very hard concept to grasp that the world’s elites’ allowed China to become the powerful and rich nation that they are now. Trade policies and deal-makings don’t just happen so heavily favoured toward one country so quickly.
Are the powers-that-be controlling China allowing a small bit of media to suggest it was China’s fault, just to remind China whose boss? All it would take is to have a few investigators come up with “proof” that China let the virus out, and the world would ban China, or force China to pay dearly – whether it was China’s fault or not.
For most, this is a hard concept to grasp – but I can assure you, those with unlimited money play a vastly different game of life than we do.
