I'm quite sure I do not take your point. Perhaps I am slow.

First of all, I don't understand what your extended rant/comment has to do with the article I posted. This is your page and you can rant wherever and whenever you want, but it seems a non-sequitur at best to me.

Secondly, when you say, "There is a type of person FAR more dangerous to human society than a low IQ uneducated white supremacist racist pseudo-christian right winger; it's a high IQ peer reviewed biology research scientist that gullible people respect and admire," you give aid and succor to the people who want you dead. While your pints as regards animal testing are well made, it is easy to dismiss scientific expertise with an airy, "my feelings are just as good as your hard-won knowledge."

The war on expertise is real and waged every dat by the bum in the White House and his minions who, in the words of Steve Bannon, "flood the zone with ****."

How Aerosol Driven Water Droplet Concentrations Control Low Level Cloud Coverage Affecting Climate
495 views•May 8, 2020

In a nutshell, with more aerosols (particles and non-water liquids) in the atmosphere, there are more cloud condensation nuclei so many more and smaller water droplets in clouds. Thus clouds are much more reflective of incoming sunlight, causing some cooling to partially offset GHG warming. Smaller water droplets in clouds means that they rain less, become thicker,  hold more water, cover a larger fraction of the sky and persist for a lot longer causing even more cooling offset. With global industrial shutdowns from our coronavirus responses, we have less aerosols in the skies, thus less of this cooling offset occurring.

Evolution ID and the Coronavirus :👨‍🔬 Jonathan Wells Explains - ID The Future Podcast

On this episode of ID the Future, biologist and Discovery Institute senior fellow Jonathan Wells tackles questions of evolution and intelligent design as they relate to the novel coronavirus SARS CoV-2. Is it the product of evolution, in the sense of Darwin’s Origin of Species? Wells argues to the contrary: It’s not a new species; in fact viruses aren’t even considered living species. Does modern evolutionary theory guide medicine’s response? Not when you consider that most of the major treatments being used and pursued actually preceded Darwin. Is intelligent design involved? Yes and no, Wells says. Listen in to get his take on this and more.  For more about this and to download the podcast go to: https://www.discovery.org/multimedia/...

The ID The Future (IDTF) podcast carries on Discovery Institute's mission of exploring the issues central to evolution and intelligent design. IDTF is a short podcast providing you with the most current news and views on evolution and ID. IDTF delivers brief interviews with key scientists and scholars developing the theory of ID, as well as insightful commentary from Discovery Institute senior fellows and staff on the scientific, educational and legal aspects of the debate.

What causes people suffering from lung diseases to feel breathless is not the fall in oxygen levels but rather the body sensing the rising levels of carbon dioxide.
🦇 Adam Gits
'Twas the Lunar New Year, when all through the proletariat
Not a game meat was cooking, not even a bat;
The respirators were worn by the people with care,
With hopes that the virus wouldn't be there;

The infected were nestled in hospital beds,
While burning hot fevers were cooking their heads;
And mamma in quarantine, and I in house arrest,
Cried ourselves to sleep as the illness progressed,

When out in Wuhan arose a new hospital,
It sprang up so fast it seemed impossible.
Away the sick were taken like a flash,
But later they died and cremated like trash.

Eventually the truth came and damn it was sad
The virus was on purpose and made in a lab,
When, what did scientific eyes should see,
It was a bat virus with added HIV;

The virus spread fast, so lively and quick,
I knew in a moment the world would get sick.
More rapid than eagles the accusers they came,
They knew the communist party was to blame;

The economy tanked, supply chains ran dry,
Airports shut down, nobody could fly,
People panicked as store shelves went bare,
Bodies piled high, people filled with despair;

Big pharma stepped in, look a vaccine!
But the after effects were sick and obscene,
The virus itself was part one of two,
The vaccine was something we couldn't undo;

The Earth would go on, but humans were done,
So spread your *** cheeks and insert your thumb,
The Earth yelled something harsh and succinct,

Agelbert NOTE: It only hurts when you laugh.

Nationwide, the unemployment rate is now 14.7% - the highest since the Great Depression as BI notes.

A dose of that ol' time religion for doomers, back before a global pandemic Too big to fully reproduce here, but a trip in the Wayback Machine for those of us who came of age on nukes, massive earthquakes, volcanoes and EMPs.

Experts Knew a Pandemic Was Coming. Here’s What They’re Worried About Next.
Nine disasters we still aren’t ready for.

You might feel blindsided by the coronavirus, butwarnings about a looming pandemic have been there for decades. Government briefings, science journals and even popular fiction projected the spread of a novel virus and the economic impacts it would bring, complete often with details about the specific challenges the U.S. is now facing.

It makes you wonder: What else are we missing? What other catastrophes are coming that we aren’t planning for, but that could disrupt our lives, homes, jobs or our broader society in the next few years or decades?

It’s the government’s job to think about this: Every year, the intelligence community releases the Worldwide Threat Assessment—a distillation of worrisome global trends, risks, problem spots and emerging perils. But this year, the public hearing on the assessment, usually held in January or February, was canceled, evidently because intelligence leaders, who usually testify in a rare open hearing together, were worried their comments would aggravate President Donald Trump. And the government has not yet publicly released a 2020 threat report.

Here’s what’s coming for us now:

Read the rest of the article here: https://www.politico.com/news/magazine/2020/05/07/experts-knew-pandemic-was-coming-what-they-fear-next-238686

It makes you wonder: What else are we missing?

Too many people who blindly believe in the "unquestionable ethics" of modern scientifc inquiry and those highly educated researchers that engage in it, resulting in peer reviewed "wisdom" for the, uh, "good of humanity", ARE MISSING THIS!!!!

Of course the "intelligence" leaders are concerned with "ATTACKS ON TRUST AND TRUTH". Those BASTARDS have so distorted the very concept of "TRUST" and "TRUTH" that anyone who is not hopelessly brainwashed from the time they killed their first frog in a biology lab in high school (you have to BELIEVE in Science or you fail...) cannot help but come to the conclusion that the "Might equals Right" SYSTEM championed by TPTB, along with their Holy Darwinian Scientific Priesthood ,  that routinely engages, in the name of "science", in the methodical double blind, placebo controlled torture of small animals they euphemistically call "animal models", is TOTALLY CORRUPT. If a scientist with several years of university education (i.e. the patient and thorough final brainwashing tutelage of tenured ivory tower elite profs there) under his highly respected belt DOES IT, it's not animal abuse, it's "scientific inquiry".

EVIL BULLSHIT IS SOCIETY ALTRUISTIC VALUES DESTROYING EVIL BULLSHIT, no matter how many true believers in the "survival of the fittest" ethically BANKRUPT ideology want to dress that up as "justified in the name of science".

There is a type of person FAR more dangerous to human society than a low IQ uneducated white supremacist racist pseudo-christian right winger; it's a high IQ peer reviewed biology research scientist that gullible people respect and admire.

Torturing and killing animals in the name of science and torturing and killing humans for the same reason is ideologically consistent for a "sophisticated" true believer in Darwinian Evolutionary Theory. They will mock anyone out there, be it a lay person or a fellow scientist (no matter how credentialed), that dares to question the "scientifically accepted" DOGMA that all members of the species Homo sapiens are "highly evolved" primates, nothing more.

EVERY SINGLE TIME some Darwinan true believer attacks a lay person that is criticizing research scientists by citing all the cruelty, baseless conjecture and "science" texbook legerdemain (used to brainwash high school students) that goes with, and results from, "scientific inquiry" with disdain and/or mockery in defense of that particular type of 😈 "scientist", people of good will have a moral imperative to call BULLSHIT on them. Not doing so is immoral, reprehensible and hypocritical for anyone that claims to have ethics as their guidng principle.

The merciful man doeth good to his own soul: but he that is cruel troubleth his own flesh. Proverbs 11:17
