The Science is “Settled” Idiocy

You often hear people regurgitate the rubbish arguments for lockdowns and shutdowns with voodoo “science” from the CDC or the media . One day they’ll show studies saying “Masks are ineffective” and then next “Masks saves lives”. One day they’ll issue guidelines for staying 6 feet apart from people, the next they’ll say COVID-19 is airborne so you can get it by just breathing. Masks in California are mandatory, but when you sit down to eat and drink in a restaurant you can take it off and COVID won’t attack you while you’re nibbling your nachos. But wait, now California governor Newsom is urging diners to wear a mask in between bites.

When you start questioning this nonsense from a scientific perspective you’re shutdown – “The science is settled”.

Actually, there is no such thing as “settled science”. That is not how science works. This is something even little kids in elementary school know. There is a process and method of scientific inquiry which begins with questions, research, a hypothesis, experiments, observations, data and analysis. You constantly align your results and data with the hypothesis to see if you’re right or wrong and make decisions accordingly.

Today despite all the evidence proving lockdowns don’t work and all the crazy scenario pandemic models are wrong, people still insist on destroying a country’s economy with mass business shutdowns, wiping out people’s livelyhoods. This way more people are likely to die of starvation than COVID.

Carl Sagan famously said, “the cure for a fallacious argument is a better argument, not the suppression of ideas.” This wisdom has been sadly forsaken during the COVID19 pandemic, when one powerful narrative has taken not only the public, but the scientific community, by storm. The story is that societies cannot survive the pandemic without society-wide lockdowns until we have a vaccine, despite the fact that we have never had a vaccine for a coronavirus, vaccines usually take many years to develop, and many of them are not all that effective once made. Penetrating this narrative has been incredibly difficult even for impeccably credentialed scientists. One might even say that this pandemic killed scientific debate.

Even as evidence proving that lockdowns do not stop the virus rolls in by the truckload, the scientists who argue for a different approach are marginalized, censored, affixed with disparaging labels, and ostracized. Sweden’s chief epidemiologist Anders Tegnell was accused of “leading Sweden to catastrophe” and of “experimenting” on the Swedish people. Nobel Laureate Michael Levitt’s careful studies and models were labeled “lethal nonsense” as he weathered attacks left, right and center. John Ioannidis, one of the world’s most productive scientists, found his studies smeared and ignored. Sunetra Gupta, one of the world’s foremost epidemiologists at The University of Oxford, found that expressing her wide-ranging infectious disease knowledge suddenly made her “unethical and dangerous.”
