Did you read the articles? The reason they don't have more confidence is China destroyed a lot of the info making it impossible to confirm. The former head of the CDC and many other scientist also believe it came from a lab.
Who exactly is a tinfoilhatter? Is that a personal attack on me for daring to share an update on the origins of the worst padenmic in 100 years that's ruined society? I'm sorry if I ask questions and don't clap like a seal at everything the mainstream media that's been wrong over and over reports.
Go back and watch the video I posted. Does it look like they're searching for the truth or looking for personal attacks on those who aren't close minded.
The FBI is said with medium confidence and the Energy of Department is said with Low confidence. In other words. This is backed with very little evidence.
Meanwhile most scientific organizations both within and without the US both agree the lab leak hypothesis is really unlikely. And the Zoonotic origin is far more likely.
As the user above me said, there is no substance in any of this. But cherry picking is what tinfoilhatters like to do. Personally instead of trying to find ways to point fingers, we should look for ways to ensure something like this wont happen again. And if it does we can prevent it from being nearly as bad.
And this is needed, because to be frank, the avian flu is starting to look really dangerous. And so do the superbugs.
It's not completely confirmed, and it's still hotly debated.
Thus, I wouldn't call fact checking sources who previously did use fictional data to make the claim as misinformation. That's more in the lines of anti-vaxxing pushed by the right, if you really want to discuss malicious misinformation regarding Covid.
How was it not misinformation to say that it was IMPOSSIBLE that it the Wuhan coronavirus came from the Wuhan coronavirus lab that was doing gain of function research?
If they said "most likely" or "most experts believe" or something to that effect I would have no issues. The issue was they said it was IMPOSSIBLE and attacked and banned people for having the courage to ask basic questions using the scientific method. Take a look at Jimmy Kimmel calling it a "crack pot conspiracy theory" from Trump or NPR, MSNBC, etc saying it was IMPOSSIBLE. Did you watch the montage of attacks?
All of that was dangerous misinformation. They were not experts who studied all the data and could say with 100% certainty is was IMPOSSIBLE.
To this day no one knows 100% and unless more info comes out we will not know 100%. However the evidence is looking stronger for the lab leak.
Reading comprehension is not a strong point in society.
Should I try to do a better job summarizing the data for people who don't have strong enough reading comprehension skills?
We should have stronger intertional agreements verifying biosecurity. It's scary what they can do in some of these labs.
It probably wasn't posted because it's still debatable, they're just saying it was a potential source, there is still no consensus. I think that's what the links you posted say too.
If it is true then it means we need international agreements for verifying biosecurity the way we do nuclear capabilities and the permitted inspections that foreign countries have. There have been leaks documented, although I am unsure of the consequences that were faced. There are a lot of labs around the world though.
