Re: Corona

Jemisi, put it another way. There are hundreds of thousands of scientists in the modern world (1850 to present). There are only a few hundred Test cricket captains. Based on those numbers, being a Test cricket captain is much rarer feat. Is that a fair assumption you can agree with? How many Test cr...

Re: Corona

Yeah, and all it takes to refute your falsifiable claim is 1 scientist that has overstepped. Do you really think none have? There is a difference between a scientist overstepping or making a mistake and claiming to be infallible (ie 100% correct is effectively God mode). No scientist would claim to...

Re: Corona

But my research to that thought led me to understand you can only be a coronavirus statistic if you have been tested positive for the virus. Yes of course. But you can be COVID +, walk across the street, get hit by a car and be a dead guy who is also +. This was the essence of jimmy's argument. How...

Re: Corona

Sure, Bob, Jennifer, Phil, I have heard lots of people say bombastic things in one breath and then your doctrinally correct line the next. You've never heard it? That surprises me. People make all sorts of claims arguing from authority. It is in the logic textbooks as a fallacy for a reason. Speaki...

Re: Corona

How would they claim it? Easy, people say all sorts of unguarded things. Why would you doubt my testimony when you obviously have only heard a small fraction of scientists speak? You've then just given me more dogma, which is fine as far as it goes, but people being people they are capable of all s...

Re: Corona

I take your point Kriterion, but Scientists have very often claimed to be 100% correct. Jemisi, you know thats not true. Why would you peddle something that you know to be untrue? Have you ever heard of the terms sensitivity or specificity? Those are statistical terms that basically describe how ac...

Re: Corona

Scienctists never claim to be 100% correct. They just claim to follow the data available to them to the best of their ability.

Re: Corona

What science has the hysteria-driven lockdown crowd followed? A couple of projections that have proven to be way off? https://www.realclearpolitics.com/articles/2020/05/21/how_fear_groupthink_drove_unnecessary_global_lockdowns_143253.html?fbclid=IwAR1_-WODH7ueyCWZwjxWGFVLN4IEO6T9P1OWLjvFa3TZd2WDF2U...

Re: Corona

CNN reports some semi positive news.

Georgia which is one of the earliest states to reopen and did so fairly aggressively has NOT had a spike in cases, as logic would have predicted. They have had a steady increase but not an accelerated one.

Perhaps bodes well for global recovery.

Re: Corona

I doubt many of the Governors seeking lockdowns really care about saving lives or even think the questionable practice of lockdowns is effective. They know that the only way to defeat Trump is to drive the economy off a cliff. If Joe "can't remember his wife from his sister" Biden is elected things...
