"The pharmaceutical industry has mice that will tell us that the drugs they are advancing into the market are safe."
Bret Weinstein was a professor of biology at Evergreen State University in Olympia, WA, until recent years when he and other science faculty members were outed as racists. The ensuing chaos on the campus was a harbinger of recent uprisings in American cities.
Bret's appearance on the Joe Rogan Experience this last week, in order to tie together multiple schools of information and threads of thought in a common and scientifically defensible explanation of the chaos we are all watching unfold is one of the most timely messages I've heard, outside the Bible, in my lifetime.
That's a big claim. So. Yeah. Click the link and go listen to the 2.5-hour romp. Keep a pen and paper handy. Doodle. Take notes. Engage your thought process. I'm risking your goodwill with me as a reliable source. I'm not doing that on accident.
"What are we to do about this?" Joe asked promptly. Joe likes to take action. Saying that we should change things and do this or do that is one of his favorite rants and the reason people listen to him.
Remember, near the very end of a long discussion in which the points have been consistent, orderly and well made, Bret has just explained that everything in your medicine cabinet might actually kill you (or your epigenome, or your kids') because, even though the FDA has approved them on the basis of laboratory studies on mice over generations, the private labs who grow and sell the mice to every other lab in the world have been volkswagoning the genetics of the mice themselves so that they are bred to "beat the tests".
"What are we to do about this?" Joe asked promptly.
"How many 'this'es' are there?" Bret said.
That's the money ticket right there.
I Can't Believe It's Not Butter isn't really food either.
Veganism is famous because of the tireless efforts and funds devoted to it by the Seventh Day Adventists, who, coincidentally also invented corn flakes in order to help your sons stop masturbating (that, they also teach, is caused by the consumption of red meat.)
General Mills is a major underwriter of the American Heart Association.
Drinking fluoride messes with your thyroid.
I reversed my chronic high blood sugar by eating fat.
Black Lives Matter says they are a Marxist front, but that didn't stop your grandma, your brother, and half of South Korea from giving them millions in the name of a man Nancy Pelosi calls "George Kirby."
Joe Biden, the racist, if not more, is actually the best option for everyone who hates Trump.
Trump. I mean. What is there that has not already been said?
That's just a cavalier, kinda personal running list.
"How many 'this'es' are there?"
The tomb was empty then.
The tomb is empty now.
He is not there, just as he said.
John 2:23-25 "Now when Jesus was in Jerusalem at the Passover Feast, many believed in his name when they saw the signs that he was doing. But Jesus on his part did not entrust himself to them, because he knew all people and needed no one to bear witness about man, for he himself knew what was in man."
How many "this'es?" All of them. Because where you find us, you find liars and their lies. We Christians, of all people, with our doctrine of original sin, need not be surprised by such things.
Nor need we be disturbed and dissuaded by them.
He is risen.
Be strong, and let your heart know courage.
