Re: Though some are PRATTS, the worldview is defended
I have to say that those links are pretty awful. Standard apologetic trash. Including your favourite strawman.

If you want to discuss any of those pages in detail, I suggest you start another topic to do so.

(Oh, and I don’t know why you keep going on about “spiritual warfare” - it seems to be just an excuse to reject the truth which really suggests you’re not on the side you think you are).

Re: belief in the method
I think you should cite a more reliable source, and choose a better example. Even in this article it’s not alleged that there is any scientific disagreement.

Further, the article does not address anything beyond the bounds of science anyway.

Re: belief in the method
Hence my first point was “you should cite a more reliable source”. I’d rank even the Daily Mail above Wingnut Daily and I’d be very cautious about citing that.

Re: belief in the method
How interesting that your response addresses absolutely nothing I said.

Re: belief in the method
I realise that a serious response is wasted on you.

CNN? Ha Twitter? Facebook? Infowars?

Infowars is about as bad as Worldnet Daily. Maybe worse. CNN is much better, although that’s damning with faint praise. Twitter and Facebook are full of user-generated content so it would depend on who generated the content. There are actual scientists on Twitter, certainly.

Re: belief in the method
quote:
Except that the guy who says he is a joke of a known liar happened to be the guy that invented mrna vaccine, no? Why would we favour the one opinion over the other?

For reference Malone did not actually invent mRNA vaccines, although he did some important work relating to them - decades ago. (And, of course, that doesn’t make him an expert on the effectiveness of masks). That doesn’t stop him trying to claim that he did invent them - but that is a reason not to trust him.

More importantly Malone has been spreading misinformation about Covid. There’s no reason to believe that this claim is any better than his promotion of ivermectin as a Covid treatment or his anti-vaccination nonsense.

So I have no hesitation in declaring that his assertions are not credible.
