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blog, insofar as it seems to believe both in science and the importance of intellectual imagination, uncompromised by out of date emotions such as the impulse toward conventional religious beliefs, national aggression as a part of patriotism, and so on.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

The true cause of and cure for HIV?AIDS to be announced

The sun will set here on twenty years and $140 billion worth of irrational theory

At the end of our patience with the scientific scallywags and media lickspittles of the HIV?AIDS scene, not to mention the armchair activists, Web soapboxers and AIDS walkers and runners and rowers and all the other lemmings of this as yet scientifically unjustified and always medically oppressive paradigm, we are happy to announce that, not unlike Princeton mathematician Andrew Wiles solving Fermat’s Theorem (1630) after nearly four centuries, we have after a long two decades finally identified the solution to the last two remaining great puzzles of HIV?AIDS – its real cause and its real cure.

We do not joke, faithful readers. And this is no arrogant assertion made by an individual overcome by grandiosity at the sight of a blank screen on the Net. It is merely the result of an ordinary hack using the extraordinary secret weapon that our benevolent government has put into our hands over the last few years. Using this tool, even a brainless scribbler has more intellectual power over medical and scientific knowledge than Galileo, Newton, Copernicus, Einstein and Duesberg combined, sitting in the first Library of Alexandria.

For PubMed and its electronic cousins are the equivalent of being God when it comes to power over medical information. PubMed alone has some 16 million papers at its beck and call, or rather, your beck and call, and mine, if you only follow the simple instructions we announced in our earlier post.

That is how we can soon come forward and announce the True Cause and Cure of AIDS (patented). Moreover, unlike Wiles, we have found a solution that all will understand and support, not one that is beyond the ken of the lay reader. Ours, like Fermat’s own solution, will fit into the margin of a book. This simple answer was as close at the nearest screen serving up PubMed, we discovered, with a little additional nudging when an ordinary search using the obvious terms (“Cause cure HIV AIDS”) failed to come up with precisely what we were looking for.

The inspired nudging was designed by a certain distinguished medical researcher who like us has no taste for fame, but who we think deserves the Lasker prize for this breakthrough, though of course he won’t get it, since the solution is too simple and obvious, and the amount of funding it threatens too vast, for any such tribute to be on the cards.

Nevertheless, for the benefit of those who are still taking nevirapine and other revolting (see label) drugs, we will post the final answer to HIV?AIDS here shortly, for their benefit and for the general benefit of mankind, who for too long have been led over the edge of the cliff, when the easy path down to the shore to watch the sunset of HIV?AIDS was at hand all the time, courtesy of the feds, though not the ones at DAIDS, we are sorry to say.

Those who suppose that this announcement is facetious and that they can anticipate only disappointment may refer to our solution to the threat of bird flu earlier, which has so far withstood the test of public announcement without attracting a single challenge.

Watch this space for another, equally well referenced, mainstream researched statement.

    So why leave us hanging in such a manner, Truthseeker? Are you awaiting final confirmation? Are you uncertain of what you’ve posted? If you are certain, then why make us wait?

  2. truthseeker Says:

    Well, we try and get things right around here, Mark, so it serves as a blog of record. In this case I want to post with references, since the claim is a large one, and while distracted by other matters I have to bide my time until I have all the references listed.If movies are allowed trailers, I think blogs are allowed Coming Attractions :-)

  3. Mark Biernbaum Says:

    Fair enough, Truthseeker. All I can offer is my experience as a recent contestant in this crazy AIDS game and say that one becomes very tired very quickly, regardless of where one stands on the issues. I’ve been involved in it all, but a week, perhaps, and my patience with both the establishment and the anti-establishment has just about worn thin. I ponder the possibility of not trusting anyone at all at this point. We HIV+ folks and PWAs are definitely being dragged through the mud while the media celebs, bloggers, and pseudoscientists hit each other back and forth (with many shots hitting below the belt). When the “truth” does emerge, because of the crassness and craziness of the debate, I truly wonder if anyone in my position will believe it. I guess I am confessing to AIDS-debate exhaustion. I’m certain I’m not alone in this. All parties on all sides should be aware of the nasty psychological effect this is having on those whose health and futures depend so much on the outcome.

  4. Karen Lynne Lambert Says:

    But, if HIV is not the cause of AIDS, then, what is?? Because HIV-Negative AIDS patients are not prescribed any toxic antiretroviral medications. Nobody even acknowledges our idiopathic illnesses, never mind to care enough to want to drug us…I believe that to systemically diagnosis millions of ailing, med-free, immunosuppressed CFS patients — will be to answer the next-most, sequentially-logical question: What is the cause of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS)?Orthodoxy: HIV/AIDSAIDS Myth: HIV?AIDSProposal: CFS->AIDSwww.lemonfoundation.blogspot.com

  5. Karen Lynne Lambert Says:

    Can’t you see that we have it all backwards? HIV+ individuals are not even sick. AIDS patients are just more CFS patients, who only by coincidence, have a questionably harmless virus, HIV. So, the question remains: what is the cause of CFS?

  6. Truthseeker Says:

    Karen, you seem to be posting boilerplate, since the above message but one was repeated elsewhere in other comments.

    If you wish us to analyze CFS, you have to point to scientific literature which establishes that it exists, and then tell us what causes it and what cures it, referring to the same literature.

    Judging from the above, you think that CFS equals AIDS. So we are on the job already, Karen, no need to fret. We have been searching on your behalf more than 30 million papers (PubMed plus 200 other databases), and analyzing them for the true source and cure for AIDS, since it seems apparent that the HIV theory does not stand up to inspection except by those wedded to it. In fact, as we said we have solved the problem and we will announce the solution to your question anon, as we have already contracted to do in our earlier post.

    Patience is required, however, since we have now to review another one thousand HIV?AIDS papers that have come in recently, that is to say, last month, while our attention was elsewhere.

    Meanwhile, we refer you to the leading expert on the cause of CFS that we know, Charles Ortleb, the publisher of the Native before it was put out of business by the hostility of those in the gay community who disliked independent thought on the question of the cause of HIV?AIDS, which offended their religion (that HIV caused AIDS) which made high priests of the scientists in the field who offered HIV as a blamefree cause for the new syndrome in the early 1980s when it first arrived, and was associated with behavior that critics said was the cause of the new symptoms.

    Chuck has always felt that CFS was caused by a herpes virus, if I understand him correctly, and that this was the true cause of most or all the symptoms regrouped under the heading HIV?AIDS. So perhaps you have been talking to him already. Bob Gallo, who first blamed HIV and then blamed herpes virus, certainly has.

  7. noreen martin Says:

    If one checks the internet, AIDS symptoms and CFS are a mirror image of each other and are at least in the same family. Chronic fatigue cases are found in clusters or groups of people such as, hospital workers.

    The smoking gun in this case could be HHV6A which has been associated with many of the immune deficiency diseases. It is hard to detect but is much more deadly than HIV or it is believed that HIV may just be along for the ride while the HHV6A is the gang.

    Another possibility could be mycoplasmas which have also been known about for over 100 years. If you check the patent records, patents have been issued for man-made mycoplasmas, just what we need more bad guys on the planet.

    I would be so bold to say that AIDS patients probably have chronic fatigue long before they get to AIDS.

  8. arisun Says:

    any news concerning the cause and cure of HIV/Aids?

    thank you very much for your information and generally for the work you do!

  9. Truthseeker Says:

    Arisun, if you look a little further up the list of posts, you will find a more recent post giving the anwer to these two vexed questions, which may be disappointingly simple, given the amount of obfuscation and invention that has occurred in 22 years of maintaining an absurdity as if it was a certainty.

    The essential answer is that the literature shows that AIDS is not caused in any way by HIV but is simply other ailments relabeled, ailments which have conventional causes eg drugs or other diseases, the only complication being that there are nutritional factors governing the immune system which have to be taken into account.
