People seem disappointed that I’m not immediately jumping on the bandwagon with Dr. Li-Meng Yan’s claim that SARS-COV-2 is a man-made Chinese bioweapon. There seems to have been some sort of belief that because I oppose the Anthropogenic Global Warming hypothesis and all policies based on it, I must be a fellow conspiracy theorist.
So, to clarify, I am not. I have no deep emotional urge to disbelieve “the official story” or pluck at straws to undermine the claims of people I dislike. I oppose AGW because there is no legitimate science support it, and much which disproves it. If Dr. Li can support her claims with real evidence, I will re-evaluate my position. I currently see significant evidence to doubt her claim, including the virus’ total inadequacy as bioweapon and my lack of knowledge of any nation having the capacity to produce viruses ex nihilo.
I understand that this puts me in opposition with many of my Trump-supporting friends, but frankly, that is why I left the Republican party after his nomination.
