    Moderator note: FatFreddy has been warned for trolling and for posting misleading propaganda.

    Going on about the moon landings being a conspiracy is mostly harmless nonsense, but telling lies about Covid 19 and the vaccines can actually endanger public health and safety.

    Due to accumulated warning points, FatFreddy will have a day to think things through before returning to sciforums.

    Mostly what it shows is how poorly people understand science.

    Hmm, I think you are far too kind. It is plain from Fat Freddy's posts on this thread that he is being utterly disingenuous. He is neither confused nor having trouble evaluating sources of information. The sole purpose of the posts was to give an airing to various sources of disinformation. We can speculate as to the motive: perhaps as a wind-up for other readers of the forum, or maybe just to spread lies on the English-speaking internet, like a Russian state troll.

    Either way, it is trolling, pure and simple.

    If his questions/statements were put forth in discussion format, would they stay?

    Because if this is true:
    It's like suspending a guy because you cannot piece together an argument.

    And hey, since I don't know what's going on, Jesus blessed me with immunity.

    Just so you know.

    :EDIT:

    Those questions weren't posted by FatFreddy? I'm lost.

    Lies about Covid-19 and the vaccines for it are widely available elsewhere. We at sciforums are not obliged to host them here as well. As I said before, telling lies about Covid 19 and the vaccines actually costs lives.

    Generally clever ways to break forum rules are treated the same way as breaking them to begin with.

    For example, on a forum I moderate, personal attacks are not allowed - but attacks against a group (republicans, rioters, BLM) are. So clever folks might say (for example) "anyone who has 'beer' in their username is an idiot! You can't ban me because I am talking about a GROUP not a person." Doesn't work there.

    In addition, this is a topic where misinformation can actually injure or kill people. I am reminded of the African religious leaders who opined that having unprotected sex with virgins will cure AIDS. Such rumors are not just stupid Internet nonsense - they can actually cause injury.

    what if

    the malaria parasite catches covid ?

    how bad would that be ?

    Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image!



    im thinking out loud
    africa super hot dry
    only super strong corona survives
    for how long before the malaria parasite becomes environmentally saturated in it ?
    will it jump ?
    if so how where why etc etc

    would solve a whole lot of problems very quickly(cynical satire/black(dark) humor)

    B.1.1.529,

    and thats the thing
    it may develop in a hot dry incubation zone
    & maybe get self regulated to minimal spread
    but if it is suddenly transported into a colder more humid zone
    then will it be given what it needs to thrive

    that is modern travel & global stuff

    be it, walked in through any countrys incubating in refugees from north africa middle east into colder Europe
    then spread international

    or just singular 1 off jump directly from hot dry to free spread in cool damp

    it certainly was not slowed down by indias heat
    so now its always flu season
    every season of the year

    so im hypothesizing
    on most likely worst case incubation developmental jumps

    every season is Flu season

    if the study was done on poverty stricken high infant mortality areas of malnutrition
    it will need to be done again on 1st world children
    it may be a selective gene issue

    there may be down sides to it
    the sequencing may also have a
    for argument sake im just hypothesizing
    some type of function which undermines blood transfer of some critical nutrients to the brain
    so they may all be considerably less mentally capable
    or purely as an example
    a vastly reduced life span or massively increased risk of some later life disease
