Re: Proof That SARS-CoV-2 Was Produced in a Lab
Looking at the SBM article (please fix the link) they raise the obvious point that the probability is meaningless. How many sequences did they look at to find that 19-base match ? It’s just cherry picking to point out the one match they found without providing that information.

Re: Proof That SARS-CoV-2 Was Produced in a Lab
The furin cleavage site is important, but the matching sequence doesn’t seem to be. The ideas on how they might be related seem to be highly speculative - maybe even clutching at straws. I can’t be certain just how bad it is, but I’d want something a lot more substantial for a match that small.
