    A growing number of scientists seem finally ready to at least include intelligent design within the ‘range of views’ allowed to be heard.At first glance, the Potential and Limitations of Evolutionary Processes conference in Israel last week, which I attended, looked like any other scientific meeting on evolution, with talks by highly-credentialed scientists from institutions such as the Technical University of Munich, Cambridge, and the Weizmann Institute. But a closer look at the list of speakers shows that this one was different; it gave a platform to numerous notable proponents of intelligent design. The conference included chemistry Nobel prize winners...

    The theory that the universe was crafted intentionally explains many essential realities that theories based on spontaneous chance do not.The scientific establishment is slowly beginning to allow scientists who believe in intelligent design to have a platform. Why? It may be because the theory that the universe was crafted intentionally explains many essential realities that theories based on spontaneous chance do not. Perhaps the simplest and best argument for intelligent design is to clearly state what you have to believe to not believe in intelligent design, as I did in my book, “In the Beginning and Other Essays on Intelligent...
  • New Emails Reveal Dr. Fauci’s Role in Shaping Highly Influential Paper That Established COVID ‘Natural Origin’ Narrative

    New evidence has emerged that suggests that Dr. Anthony Fauci not only initiated efforts to cover up evidence pointing to a lab origin of SARS-CoV-2 but actively shaped a highly influential academic paper that excluded the possibility of a lab leak.Fauci’s involvement with the paper wasn’t acknowledged by the authors, as it should have been under prevailing academic standards. Neither was it acknowledged by Fauci himself, who denied having communicated with the authors when asked directly while testifying before Congress last week.The article, Proximal Origin, was co-authored by five virologists, four of whom participated in a Feb. 1, 2020, teleconference...
  • Fauci, Collins Pressured a Group of Scientists To Abandon Paper On COVID Origins And Potential Wuhan Lab Leak

    Dr. Anthony Fauci and then-National Institutes of Health Director Francis Collins reportedly pressured a group of scientists to abandon a paper they were authoring on the origins of COVID-19 and the possibility that COVID-19 was “genetically manipulated” and could have leaked from the Wuhan Insitute of Virology (WIV). “Neither Drs. Fauci or Collins edited our Proximal Origins paper in any way. The major feedback we got from the Feb 1 teleconference was: 1. Don’t try to write a paper at all — it’s unnecessary or 2. If you do write it don’t mention a lab origin as that will just...

New York Knicks A.K.A New York Knickerbockers Though almost always called the Knicks these days, New York’s oldest basketball team is still officially known as the Knickerbockers. If you don’t...
  • Fauci Just Can't Stop Lying to Sen. Rand Paul and to the Rest of Us: Keeps Dancing Around the Term - "Gain-Of-Function"

    In a hearing this morning before the US Senate Health Committee, Senator Rand Paul blasted Dr. Anthony Fauci for his continued deflections and lies on funding the NIH provided to EcoHealth Alliance, to fund gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology. Predictably, Fauci lied and shifted his stance away from previously made statements on gain-of-function, to a new narrow definition which he claims qualifies his statements as true.I’ll be honest…I’m furious. Why, you ask? I am furious because today I watched Dr. Fauci lie and try to snake his way out emphatic statements he’s made before the committee previously....

    Purchases of PCR tests in China's Hubei Province surged months before the first official reports of a novel coronavirus case there, according to a report by Australia-based cybersecurity company Internet 2.0. About 67.4 million yuan ($10.5 million at current rates) was spent on PCR tests in Hubei during 2019, nearly double the 2018 total, with the upswing starting in May, according to the report. Internet 2.0 collected and analyzed data from a website that aggregates information on public procurement bids in China. The analysis team consists of former officials from intelligence agencies in the U.S., the U.K., Australia, and other...
  • Covid-19 Panel of Scientists Investigating Origins of Virus Is Disbanded: Task force’s ties to nonprofit that worked with Wuhan Institute of Virology risked perception of bias

    Wall Street Journal ^ | 09/27/2021 | Betsy McKay
    Columbia University professor Jeffrey Sachs said he has disbanded a task force of scientists probing the origins of Covid-19 in favor of wider biosafety research. Dr. Sachs, chairman of a Covid-19 commission affiliated with the Lancet scientific journals, said he closed the task force because he was concerned about its links to EcoHealth Alliance. The New York-based nonprofit has been under scrutiny from some scientists, members of Congress and other officials since 2020 for using U.S. funds for studies on bat coronaviruses with the Wuhan Institute of Virology, a research facility in the Chinese city where the first Covid-19 outbreak...

    The compulsion to find out whether the Wu Flu started in the Wuhan lab, and at whose behest the research was done, has been almost as strong as the desperate drive to stop anyone from finding the answer. On Sunday Morning Futures, Maria Bartiromo discussed this with Devin Nunes, wishing for the answer. Concurrently with watching the show, I opened my email and found a link from Alex Berenson to the March 24, 2018 document outlining the gain of function research.The document is a detailed description of the proposed research, complete with a chart of expected milestones (page 31).

    About 23,000 years ago, a group of children and teenagers left footprints along Lake Otero in what is now southern New Mexico – perhaps they were fetching water for adults hunting a mammoth or the massive ground sloth that roamed the area in those days. This week, a team of researchers from White Sands National Park, the National Parks Service and others published an article in the journal Science, which concludes that those children’s footprints were the oldest known human tracks ever found in North America. Imprints of the tiny toes were found along outcrops of the since-dried-up lake, which...

    The footprints at White Sands were dated by examining the seeds of an aquatic plant that once thrived along the shores of the dried-up lake, Ruppia cirrhosa, commonly known as ditchgrass. According to research published Thursday in the journal Science and co-authored by Bustos, the ancient ditchgrass seeds were found in layers of hard earth both above and below the many human footprints at the site, and they were radiocarbon-dated to determine their age. The tracks at one location have been revealed as both the earliest known footprints and the oldest firm evidence of humans anywhere in the Americas, showing...

    Human footprints found in New Mexico are about 23,000 years old, a study reported, suggesting that people may have arrived long before the Ice Age’s glaciers melted. Ancient human footprints preserved in the ground across the White Sands National Park in New Mexico are astonishingly old, scientists reported on Thursday, dating back about 23,000 years to the Ice Age.The results, if they hold up to scrutiny, would rejuvenate the scientific debate about how humans first spread across the Americas, implying that they did so at a time when massive glaciers covered much of their path.Researchers who have argued for such...

    Before the United States and many other countries had their first COVID cases, one person was out on the full-court press to shield the Wuhan Institute of Virology and the Chinese government from suspicions that the virus was engineered: Peter Daszak. Daszak, the President of EcoHealth Alliance, a New York-based non-profit that funds viral research around the globe, has had his fingers in almost all of the pies dealing with COVID-19, including “organizing” virologists to sign on to the a lette in “Lancet” stating conclusively that the virus originated naturally, serving on Lancet’s COVID-19 Origins Committee and on the World...

    Eighteen months into the COVID-19 pandemic, the medical journal The Lancet has finally decided to publish a letter warning of the dangers of dismissing a hypothesis, in this case the lab-leak theory, before scientists test it. div class="thm-piano-mop"> In February 2020, the journal published a letter dismissing the lab-leak theory. It stated: “We stand together to strongly condemn conspiracy theories suggesting that COVID-19 does not have a natural origin.” The authors really wanted us to believe the bat soup theory. Thanks to Dr. Fauci’s emails, we now know that Dr. Peter Daszak, who funded gain-of-function research in the Wuhan lab,...

    Senator Rand Paul weighed in Tuesday following a Monday bombshell from The Intercept which revealed that Dr. Anthony Fauci's NIAID and its parent, the NIH, funded Gain-of-Function research in Wuhan, China. Recall that Fauci called Paul a 'liar' for accusing him of funding the risky research, in which viruses are genetically modified or otherwise altered to make them more transmissible to humans."Surprise surprise – Fauci lied again," Paul tweeted on Tuesday, including a link to Richard H. Ebright's thread (below).Surprise surprise - Fauci lied again And I was right about his agency funding novel Coronavirus research at Wuhan. Read this...

    The 17-agency U.S. intelligence community announced it reached an inconclusive assessment regarding the origins of COVID-19, including whether the virus leaked from a Chinese lab, following a 90-day investigation that was ordered earlier this year by President Joe Biden, according to a summary of the findings.Agency officials said (pdf) the Chinese regime is still unwilling to cooperate in their probe to obtain answers about the origins of the virus. The regime would need to fully cooperate with a U.S. investigation in order to determine whether the virus came from a laboratory or not.“China’s cooperation most likely would be needed to...

    As the COVID Delta wave rages across the globe, China’s role in creating the pandemic is once again under scrutiny. The Washington Post is now reporting that Ben Embarek, head of the World Health Organization’s origin investigation into COVID-19, is admitting that CCP officials essentially dictated what was to be put in the report.Part of that appears to be a clear attempt to cover up the lab leak theory, framing it as a distant possibility with no evidentiary backing. So, the Washington Post is reporting that the head of the WHO origins investigation team now says they essentially got dictated...

    As Beijing struggles to suppress China's most broad-based COVID outbreak since the original wave that swept the globe in late 2019-early 2020, the CCP's ministry of propaganda is ramping up efforts to spread a conspiracy theory blaming COVID on the US military, CNN reports.As we have previously reported, the conspiracy theory alleges that the virus originated at a military lab at Fort Detrick in Maryland. While that might seem outlandish to most Americans, plenty of Chinese citizens are taking the reports at face value. In fact, the reports have elicited enough of an impassioned response from Chinese citizens that half...

    The only foreign scientist who worked at China’s notorious Wuhan Institute of Virology has admitted she can’t rule out that COVID-19 leaked from the lab. “I’m not naive enough to say I absolutely write this off,” Australian virologist Danielle Anderson told Bloomberg of the theory behind the pandemic that has so far killed nearly 4 million people worldwide. Anderson, 42, was last at the institute in central China in November 2019, when the virus is believed to have already started spreading in Wuhan. SARS, an earlier coronavirus that emerged in Asia in 2002 and killed more than 700 people, made...

    Scientists at the University of Kent in the UK have published new research that concludes it is most likely the virus that causes Covid-19 was circulating in Wuhan in November 2019, or even weeks earlier in October, before any cases linked to the Huanan wet market were reported in December 2019.The research, which used methods from conservation science, according to reports, finds that the most probable date of the emergence of the virus was November 17, 2019.The paper notes that SARS-CoV-2 could have first appeared from early October and concludes that it had already circled the globe by January 2020.The...
