One of the checks and balances on rampant bad scientific research is to continuously assess how new ideas fit into the framework of the bigger picture. A new piece of information may seem perfectly reasonable and well-documented, but the domino effect of its implications gives you another way to test its validity. When multiple lines of seemingly rock-solid evidence contradict one another, that’s a good sign that something is wrong, even if you don’t yet know why. Whenever a thread seems out of place, it’s time to pull on that thread until you can figure out what exactly is going on.
…”Trusting the science” is not (and never has been) about trusting results or trusting experts. Trusting the scientists is what got us into this mess. For science to function properly, we must NOT trust the scientists. Instead, we must trust in the messy self-correcting process that allows truth to boil to the surface even if every participant in that process is flawed.
“Science is the belief in the ignorance of the Experts”
— Richard P. Feynman
Science is the relentless competition between measurable pieces of evidence, the ruthless gauntlet of debate, the willingness to question even the most “obvious” of assumptions, and the humbleness to test and retest any and all assumptions against hard evidence, most especially when those assumptions are our own.
Virologist Christine Rouzioux claimed on an episode of 24H Pujadas with David Pujadas that the COVID-19 epidemic has resumed among the vaccinated in French nursing homes.
The problem is that over the last few days an important phenomenon has appeared in several nursing homes all over France, for example in Montpellier, in the Sarte, in Rheims, in the Moselle.Translation source: RAIR Foundation
At several places the epidemic has resumed among the vaccinated, among vaccinated the civil servants. I remind you that the nursing home residents were the first ones vaccinated starting in January.
They have had both doses, so the protection is really significant, and it is not a default of protection connected to a recent vaccination, I am told.
So they tell me, “It is old people.” I understand, but in fact we cannot see it among the young, because the young have not yet been vaccinated, but it is quite important information, because there are not many severe forms, there are some, but there is great fatigue, a respiratory insufficiency; they eat less there are phenomena of malnutrition.
This absolutely calls into question the “protection”, and this means that there is circulating…
…the information from the Institut Pasteur is that these are English viruses, and studies are underway to see if these could be variations of English variations, if you will, but anyway, it is important to take this news into consideration, and I believe the main message here is that even when vaccinated, let’s be very careful with our contacts, and let’s continue with our preventive measures. We will look more closely at these nursing homes …we will take a closer look, because it’s important information.
