Damned Heretics

Condemned by the established, but very often right

I am Nicolaus Copernicus, and I approve of this blog

I am Richard Feynman and I approve of this blog

Qualified outsiders and maverick insiders are often right about the need to replace received wisdom in science and society, as the history of the Nobel prize shows. This blog exists to back the best of them in their uphill assault on the massively entrenched edifice of resistance to and prejudice against reviewing, let alone revising, ruling ideas. In support of such qualified dissenters and courageous heretics we search for scientific paradigms and other established beliefs which may be maintained only by the power and politics of the status quo, comparing them with academic research and the published experimental and investigative record.

We especially defend and support the funding of honest, accomplished, independent minded and often heroic scientists, inventors and other original thinkers and their right to free speech and publication against the censorship, mudslinging, false arguments, ad hominem propaganda, overwhelming crowd prejudice and internal science politics of the paradigm wars of cancer, AIDS, evolution, global warming, cosmology, particle physics, macroeconomics, health and medicine, diet and nutrition.

Skepticism is dangerous. That’s exactly its function, in my view. It is the business of skepticism to be dangerous. And that’s why there is a great reluctance to teach it in schools. That’s why you don’t find a general fluency in skepticism in the media. On the other hand, how will we negotiate a very perilous future if we don’t have the elementary intellectual tools to ask searching questions of those nominally in charge, especially in a democracy? – Carl Sagan (The Burden of Skepticism, keynote address to CSICOP Annual Conference, Pasadena, April 3/4, 1982).

I am Albert Einstein, and I heartily approve of this blog, insofar as it seems to believe both in science and the importance of intellectual imagination, uncompromised by out of date emotions such as the impulse toward conventional religious beliefs, national aggression as a part of patriotism, and so on.   As I once remarked, the further the spiritual evolution of mankind advances, the more certain it seems to me that the path to genuine religiosity does not lie through the fear of life, and the fear of death, and blind faith, but through striving after rational knowledge.   Certainly the application of the impulse toward blind faith in science whereby authority is treated as some kind of church is to be deplored.  As I have also said, the only thing ever interfered with my learning was my education. My name as you already perceive without a doubt is George Bernard Shaw, and I certainly approve of this blog, in that its guiding spirit appears to be blasphemous in regard to the High Church doctrines of science, and it flouts the censorship of the powers that be, and as I have famously remarked, all great truths begin as blasphemy, and the first duty of the truthteller is to fight censorship, and while I notice that its seriousness of purpose is often alleviated by a satirical irony which sometimes borders on the facetious, this is all to the good, for as I have also famously remarked, if you wish to be a dissenter, make certain that you frame your ideas in jest, otherwise they will seek to kill you.  My own method was always to take the utmost trouble to find the right thing to say, and then to say it with the utmost levity. (Photo by Alfred Eisenstaedt for Life magazine) One should as a rule respect public opinion in so far as is necessary to avoid starvation and to keep out of prison, but anything that goes beyond this is voluntary submission to an unnecessary tyranny, and is likely to interfere with happiness in all kinds of ways. – Bertrand Russell, Conquest of Happiness (1930) ch. 9

Ban the critics in the media! – Toronto session

Irresponsible for journalists to quote HIV∫AIDS review, say Moore, Geffen, Horton of Lancet.

Why have the HIV boys adopted a losing tactic?

Barnesworld relays news of a development that must have Dr Anthony Fauci of NIAID having kittens over the crumbling of his highly successful strategy, over two decades, of banning any mention of why HIV∫AIDS science may be fatally flawed.

Yesterday John Moore of Cornell and his partner in crime Nathaniel Geffen of Treatment Action Group drew even more attention to the anti-HIV critique by publicly lambasting journalists who mention it. The venue can hardly have been more prominent. It was one of the Conference’s first sessions, titled HIV Science and Responsible Journalism.

As reported by Michael Geiger of San Diego HEAL at BarnesWorld, Moore and Geffen were joined from the audience by Richard Horton of the Lancet, whose grand survey of AIDS matters last week included the enbarrassing revelation that HAART hasn’t done much to reduce the death rate of AIDS patients, as in “no reduction in all-cause mortality” in the 20,000 studied.

The post Signs of Civil War Erupt at Toronto AIDS Conference // John P. Moore – The Dissidents’ Best Friend on BarnesWorld, newly renamed “Barnes-ville”, describes the session in amusingly irreverent terms, pointing out the paradoxical truth that the more Moore et al try to quash dissent the more they call attention to it.

John P. Moore, The Rethinkers BEST FRIEND, has helped us all to further disseminate HIV Dissenter’s information to the world press today. Every time he opens his mouth, or puts keystroke to computer he either sells HIV Dissenter’s books, promotes HIV Dissent magazine articles, or further informs the world of the importance of HIV Dissent issues.

Now we (and probably Dr Fauci) are wondering why they don’t appreciate this simple truth, first voiced by author and critic Harvey Bialy, and we think we know the answer.

Sure, Harper’s Celia Farber piece in March (“Out of Control: AIDS and the Corruption of Medical Science”) paved the way, landing like a MOAB (the Mother of All Bombs, a 21,000 lb superbomb) from a great height on the deep bunker of NIAID’s protective guard against any mention in the media of the HIV∫AIDS review. But in their response, Gallo, Moore, Geffen and others chose the wrong strategy for a reason beyond being shell shocked.

Why is NIAID censorship cracking from within?

Surrounded by tyrannized conformists who do not speak out, these activists of questionable science imagine that the whole world is their captive. They fail to realize, as Dr Fauci always has, that dissent is catnip to the independent mind. Every good scientist knows that the future lies in correction, the key to progress, and that the inevitable result of advance is replacement of the conventional wisdom.

To make scrambled eggs in science, you have to break shells. As Kuhn pointed out, paradigms don’t just accumulate, they replace the old, which resists mightily, and review is a constant process. Anyone who stands in the way of this process is simply making a public announcement that they are fools, or self interested, or both.

Alas, the report doesn’t mention any dissenter standing up and making a good point. We hope that Michael Geiger, at least, who is known to be good at such things, did so, even though under such circumstances it is usually shouting into the wind.

Saving babes from AZT

Meanwhile David Crowe scored a small victory in Canada earlier by getting a letter into the Globe and Mail explaining the toxicity of AZT. The country’s equivalent of the New York Times, the newspaper printed a contradiction from a qualified pharmacist, it appears, but the letter won a spot on a talk show for Crowe, who heads up the Alberta Society for Reapprasing AIDS.

It might seem inconceivable that a woman would deliberately evade AIDS drugs for her infant, but that is only because the toxicity of ‘life saving’ AIDS drugs is rarely discussed. AZT, the drug given to the vast majority of pregnant, HIV-positive mothers, most of their infants and, in combination with other drugs, to many other HIV-positive people, is one of the most toxic substances known to man.

There was time for one call in, a woman who told listeners her brother had given up on taking AZT because of its toxicity.

Crowe’s letter was triggered by a case where a mother was sentenced to six months (conditional) for trying to avoid medicating her newborn. Meanwhile, more mothers-to-be clamor for the test. All those who ignore the scientific literature in their enthusiasm for the paradigm being celebrated in Toronto should ponder the real-life consequences of their neglect and denial.

Signs of Civil War Erupt at Toronto AIDS Conference // John P. Moore – The Dissidents’ Best Friend

The AIDS Conference in Toronto Canada opened today. Melinda Gates was one of the opening speakers, and strangely had nothing to say about HIV drugs. She did say she would like to see the research and production of microbials and oral preventatives that women can protect themselves from disease with, put into full speed forward research. Canadian Conference co-chair Dr. Mark (Put Duesberg and all the Denialists in JAIL) Wainberg, who also is the proud owner of HIV Drug Patents, was naturally back to his standard dope dealer routine. “One goal of the conference is to make sure drugs are available to those who need them around the world, regardless of ability to pay”, he said. Prime Minister Stephen Harper has said he will not attend the six-day conference because of other commitments, a decision that will thrill Re-Thinkers, but has rankled and baffled organizers, researchers and AIDS activists – not just in Canada but elsewhere in the world. Clement and Minister of International Co-operation Jose Verner are representing Canada. Perhaps Minister Harper (I love the name Harper, reminds me of a magazine article I read a few months back) is another one of the few leaders of a country to see through the thin veneer of HIV/AIDS pseudoscience.

There was an astounding amount of lackadaisical attitude on the part of the inhabitants of Toronto. Strangely, the only banner of notice was for the International Dragonboat Festival that had ended today. No red ribbons in the Park. Nothing advertised on the subway. There were newspaper accounts in the local press, but that was pretty much the only notice that the fair city was being descended upon by 25,000 HIV worshippers.

John P. Moore, The Rethinkers BEST FRIEND,

has helped us all to further disseminate HIV Dissenter’s information to the world press today. Every time he opens his mouth, or puts keystroke to computer he either sells HIV Dissenter’s books, promotes HIV Dissent magazine articles, or further informs the world of the importance of HIV Dissent issues.

Witness:This mornings first session, co-chaired by John P. (I Hate The Denialists) Moore, was about press coverage. It was called the HIV Science and Responsible Journalism session.

His message was the same old song; he hollers something to the effect of “Look at those damn AIDS denialists, No, don’t look at them, you’ll turn to stone”, in a bit of a falsetto shrill, of AIDS denialism kills and all of us AIDS Denialists should be cooked slowly over a picnic barbecue. He ranted about the abuse of science (he should know, he is to be considered an expert in abusing science), he droned on about the rethinkers not getting through the thick walls of Media Censorship to publish any of their own work in peer-reviewed journals like Science, Nature, the Lancet, etc. And naturally, he screamed that we are pure liars, with HIV Dissenter’s well-proven claims that AZT is one of the world’s most toxic chemicals.

It is always a pleasure to hear Dr. Moore uttering words such as AZT IS ONE OF THE WORLDS MOST TOXIC CHEMICALS”, if only he would leave out the rest of his driveling untruths.

Naturally, Nathan Geffen, policy coordinator for Treatment Action Campaign in South Africa, joined Moore in his screed filled screech in touting the AIDS(un)TRUTH website as the only responsible place for journalists reporting on HIV/AIDS to get the proper brainwashing. Strange, cause the only truth I could find on his site, was the words of Dr. Bialy, and the link to Harpers! Both Moore and Nathan Geffen, policy coordinator for Treatment Action Campaign in South Africa, plugged AIDS Truth as a means for journalists reporting on HIV/AIDS to get reliable information.

A civil war began to erupt, when the panel discussion, which included such un-notables and unquotables as Marilyn Chase with Wall Street Journal, Tamar Kahn, science and health editor at South Africa’s Business Day, and Kim Honey, health editor at the Toronto Star, opened up a debate over whether journalists should challenge scientific consensus. For some strange reason, Geffen opposed it, and naturally, planted-into-the-audience, was Lancet chief editor Richard Horton who begged and pleaded for journalists to rise up to honk only on the Propaganda Horn. He accused journalists of being far too polite, of listening to the dissenting views of us damn denialists, and daring to print HIV Dissenter’s heretical words, because we are far too often invited to speak on the world’s stage. Strangely he asked, “Isn’t our job to keep the public informed about fact, not fiction?”

Well, I would certainly agree, and I hope he gets with the program sometime soon. Perhaps we should all give John Moore, Nathan Geffen, and Richard Horton, HIV Dissenter’s very first Honorary “Question Orthodox AIDS” Ribbons, when the conference ends. That is the only way I think they could benefit AIDS dissent more than they already have.

16th International AIDS Conference: Stunning last minute addition.

thanks for the update.

I’m glad they’re talking about “responsible journalism” when it comes to “HIV/AIDS” reporting.

If they were “smart”, they wouldn’t have even brought up the subject. Now they’re trying to make something “off limits”, possibly even taboo. That’s only going to make people more curious. It’s a big red flag when they’re telling people not to look behind the curtain.

For some of us, it’s an open admission of medical/scientific dictatorship. This isn’t what science is about…or is it?

Awesome comment by Guest Speaker Jan Spreen of France at the above link: “Germs do not create condition. They follow changes in condition”. This goes back to the fork in the road so to speak about the “germ theory” vs. pleomorphism in medicine. Pasteur the father of the germ theory supposedly recanted his position about this on his death bed; the terrain is everything, the germ is nothing!

This is why modern medcine misses the boat and will never cure anything with medicines and vaccinations regardless of what new disease or problem is on the planet. Until the terrain or the PH of the body is correct, there can be no health and well-being.

Open debate on censorship at the global AIDS Conference!! Whose idea was that?! Dr Fauci must be having kittens.

So who wrote this excellent post, apparently signed by Michael Geiger, but written in the inimitable style of Hank the Truthteller?

Either way, we hope there is a transcript of the session made available.

  2. Truthseeker Says:

    The above is not a transcript of the session referred to in the post, unfortunately. It is merely a personal screed of the author on the topic of whether microbes will cause disease in the absence of other factors causing weakness.

  3. jspreen Says:

    The above is not a transcript of the session referred to in the post, unfortunately .

    Since you write unfortunately , I presume that you regret that I did not have the opportunity to perform my text on stage.

    But, does it really matter? I mean, the people who were present are absolutely out of the reach of my little linguistic shotgun and they would have kicked me out within five minutes anyway.

    True, I was not there Sunday night at 8:15 pm. Who cares? The complete transcription is on the Internet and can be forwarded to whoever you want. So I’d say: spread the word!

  4. noreen martin Says:

    JSpreen has hit the nail on the head with “Germs do not create condition. They follow Condition”. This is why mainstream medicine is missing the mark with the germ therory of medicine.

    Antoine Bechamp so wisely proclaimed that the terrain (PH) is everything, the germ is nothing. This is why modern medicine will never successfully treat things with medicines and vaccinations. Those interested in the pleomorphism theory of medicine may go to the nightsofarmour site and check out Antoine Bechamp’s, The Third Element of the Blood.

  5. mark Says:

    Unfortunately, the missive above that was not delivered at the AIDS conference is not well written and apt to disappoint many who thought dissent was being spread. Rather than jokes, satire or drivel I prefer the writings of Farber, Culshaw, Crowe et al.

  6. Dan Says:

    I was definitely pleased to read Michael Geiger’s account of this cracking down on dissent at the conference.

    Certainly, one of the reasons for the “success” of the paradigm is that dissent and questioning are kept in the shadows, quietly ignored for the most part.

    With Moore and friends openly criticizing dissent in this venue, they are unwittingly casting a spotlight on something that had remained mostly out of sight and out of mind.

    Two decades of a successful campaign of ignoring and marginalizing dissent are coming to an end. Maybe the New York Times can help out and do a story on “responsible journalism” in respect to “HIV/AIDS”.

  7. jspreen Says:

    Unfortunately, the missive above that was not delivered at the AIDS conference is not well written and apt to dissapoint many who thought dissent was being spread. Rather than jokes, satire or drivel I prefer the writings of Farber, Culshaw, Crowe et al.

    As truthseeker, you also use the word Unfortunately , although one does not quite understand why you regret that the piece was not delivered on stage.

    First of all, my text is not a joke. I’m very serious and, since the community of inbred scientists never invites any dissident guest speakers anymore, I decided to invite myself. You must know that I only have balls of regular size and I swear to you that it took me a lot of courage to promote myself to the rank of guest speaker. Indeed, only after several seconds of deep breathing have I been able to publish my speech on the web.

    You say my text is poorly written. I’m very sorry about that but maybe you will be a little bit more indulgent if I tell you that I am a Dutchman living in France and that English is only my third language. As a matter of fact, I asked a couple of persons to do some editing but nobody answered. Can I count on you the next time I write something in English? (BTW: my software’s spellchecker tells me disappoint takes only one s and two p’s. Also, I think you refer to Farber when you write Faber)

    Why do you think many will be disappointed? Dissent IS being spread. Who cares for the couple of thousands who listened to the Gates family Sunday evening if we can reach millions through the Internet?

    So I’d say: spread the word and send my piece (I think it’s very good but I’m open to all suggestions) to everybody you know!

    You prefer Farber, Culshaw and Crowe? Of course, everybody does and so do I. But nobody needs a copy of what already exists and since during the last 25 years the International Aids Conference (the place where people can only talk with other intellectual dwarfs who also believe that HIV and H5N1 are threatening to take over global control), in spite of all the efforts of the impressive dissidents’ army composed of Duesberg, Mullis, De Harven, Crowe, Bialy, Maggiore, Farber, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, as well as so many others, I have decided to do it my way and behave like a lone soldier guerrilla. AND, like it or not, to try to put some humor in the fight as well.



  8. Johnny H. Says:

    Dan, spot on!. The fact that they have to address the issue in public over and over now is HUGE a victory to everybody who’s been working to shine some light in this darkness.

    Lighten up fella. The conference is 10x the self-satire and joke that Mr. Spreen’s essay ever could be. And from where I sit, it is written damn well. Do you have such facility with a second or third language? I doubt it.
    It may not be to your taste, but fact is, if you take the bastards at AIDS, Inc. seriously they win because their empty authority is all they have.

  9. Truthseeker Says:

    As truthseeker, you also use the word Unfortunately, although one does not quite understand why you regret that the piece was not delivered on stage.

    Jan, your post gave the impression that your ten page pdf was a transription of the session, which would be invaluable, and it was surely disappointing for many readers to find that it was not, especially when it is so long.

    Have to say it is hard to see what your general point is and why it is worth special attention. To say that microbes take advantage of weak immune systems seems trivial, if not tautological, to us. Why does this disprove Pasteur, Noreen? To deny the entire ideology of disease agents seems a little late in the day to us. Even the healthiest people get colds, surely. We have a friend who was briefly impressed by this extreme view, and sat next to coughing patrons in a cinema. After he recovered, he made sure not to sit next to coughers, even on the subway.

  10. Noreen Martin Says:

    “Even the healthiest people get colds”, come on, how healthy are they then? Yes, I do believe that this disproves Pasteur because we all know that flies do not produce garbage. We do and the flies are attracted to this type of environment. So it is in the body, when the PH is not correct, the germs which are always about us mutate to other forms to survive in the environment which has been created by man or woman.

  11. jspreen Says:

    which would be invaluable

    Once again I ask: Why would it be so much more valuable if I had performed it on stage? If you think it is a valuable document (and you think it is because you think that it would be invaluable if it had been performed on stage before the scientific inbred officially invited to the International Aids Conference who wouldn’t have listened anyway), just send it to everybody you know and tell them to send it to everybody they know, etc. etc. and it will become invaluable.

    Have to say it is hard to see what your general point is and why it is worth special attention.


    Do I really have to explain?

    You say it yourself:
    To say that microbes take advantage of weak immune systems…

    It means that microbes are the cause of nothing at all. It means that something must always precede microbial infection. Any infection, were it with Koch bacilli, H5N1 or HIV.

    So then: What is microbial or viral infection? What exactly happens in an infected organ? What happened to that organ before it became infected? Medicine can’t tell you because it completely ignores what always precedes infection.

    It’s like an alien who has no idea what’s happening in our world, who doesn’t know anything about fire nor what precedes fire and always and only witnesses one when fire engines are already there. And who then says: Fire engines must be the cause of fire because they are always there when something is ablaze.

    You cannot make any living being ill simply by germ infection, as Pasteur and followers (i.e. “scientific” western medicine) wants us to believe . We think we can and we are convinced that the experiences with all kinds of animals have proved beyond doubt that infection causes disease, but that is because we are blind and do not take into consideration many other factors, among which the fact that the animals used in laboratory are treated worse than lice.

    Researchers inject a serum of a diseased animal directly in the brain of a healthy chimpanzee (if you can conceive of the fact that a chimpanzee living in captivity is healthy). The chimpanzee falls ill.

    Look! the researchers exclaim. We have proved that the germ contained in the serum is infectious!
    But they have proved nothing at all, because the simple fact of injecting ANYTHING into the brain of a living being is already a good reason in itself to make the creature fall seriously ill.

  12. jspreen Says:

    We have a friend who was briefly impressed by this extreme view, and sat next to coughing patrons in a cinema. After he recovered, he made sure not to sit next to coughers, even on the subway.

    That’s because your friend completely forgot about what happened to hime a day or so before he watched the movie and, while coughing, he logically thought about the others couching too. And drew the line. The wrong line.

  13. Orwell's Ghost Says:

    The 80-plus page transcript of the August 13, 2006 Int’l. AIDS Conference panel/audience Q&A mentioned above – “HIV Science and Responsible Journalism” – is online now along with a downloadable mp3 audio file (podcast) of the event and a streaming video recording of it.

    Many familiar names get the full, below-the-belt treatment, including Duesberg, Farber, Maggiore, Scheff, Crowe, Rasnick, and the founder/editor of New Aids Review.

    Suffice it to say it is an amazing and enlightening (as well as thoroughly nauseating) read.

    The URL where all of this can be accessed is here (it’s Kaiser Network dot org Health Cast number 1786).

  14. Michael David Says:

    Orwell’s Ghost or anybody else,

    I am unable to locate the transcript referred to above and was only curious in any case to learn if Moore’s favorite denialist Bialy somehow escaped his vituperations in Toronto, or whether this was a typographical oversight?

    In any case Bialy is not yet through with the “Minkey” prof, even if he has been so slighted in public by the highly esteemed idiot, as can be discovered here, and here.

  15. Michael Says:

    OH MY GOD! My first glance at the picture, and all I could see was the monkey face. My second glance, and ALL I could see is the face of Dr. Moore looking exactly like a monkey alien. FREAKED ME OUT! You have got to look deeply, but when the picture morphs from one to the other, IT IS HAUNTING!

    I am also amazed, and maybe feeling left out, that Dr. Moore left out both myself and Dr. Bialy, from any mention in Moore’s Rants to the Journalists session on Monday. But Dr. Bialy’s “Morphing Moore Monkey” certainly seems prophetic to the “Words Of Dr. Bialy“, that are inclusive of that God Awful Satire that I wrote, that is posted on AIDS-un-TRUTH.org site!

  16. Michael David Says:

    All reading this: Contrary to some opines, I am *not* a complete idiot and had the pointer to the press conference that now appears in the Orwellian comment been there when I first looked I am pretty sure that I would have been able to locate it. But I do thank TS for his usual careful, retroactive with no explanation editing. :)
