There is not much that I can add
Have a listen, have a look…
…and JUDGE YOURSELF!!!
‘SCIENCE’ without any SPIRITUAL values
is prone to go astray.
It might be really as simple as that.
But there is actually GOOD science out there.
There are still some honorable scientists out there.
Much of the GOOD SCIENCE has actually been published
in the leading medical journals, like NATURE
But any TRUTH is quickly pushed under the carpet,
We have been living
for quite some time now.
The ‘Corona Crisis’ is only the peak of the iceberg
Corona is the
CROWN of IGNORANCE
It is not all that astonishing,
that we are facing a MEDICAL CRISIS:
Medicine is THE biggest market place on this planet.
Medicine has power over politicians
Medicine operates though FEAR.
I would not want to be in the shoes of our politicians!
They are surely desperate to do the right thing-
but they do not have ANY medical knowledge.
Politics is highly dependant on the BANKS already.
It will now become dependant on “Medical Experts”.
The revenues for the Phamaceutical industry from Corona are HUGE.
Someone WILL profit from Corona…
Not you, not me, not our politicians.
In every CRISIS, someone will PROFIT
WHO IS IT???
Whoever profits, is behind it.
That applies to all walkways of life.
The answer is NOT:
Donald Trump, Scott Morrison, Boris Johnson or the Queen.
Not even Angela Merkel!
They are doing their best…
…which might not be good enough.
It is not even the Federal Reserve Bank…
…or the Pharmaceutical Industry or Monsanto…
The answer lies much, much, much deeper.
Without the deeper understanding of the underlying forces of
the CORONA CRISIS
as the peak of the iceberg of the
CRISIS of HUMANITY
our questions will remain unanswered…
Do we question at all?
So far…I have only heard people whinging.
They want to go on with their ‘normal’ lives.
Are our lives all that ‘normal’?
This CRISIS is a CHANCE…
to find ANSWERS…if you ASK…
The universal law here does NOT say:
‘Whinge and you will get’
The UNIVERSAL LAW says:
AND YOU WILL BE ANSWERED.

Engineered bat virus stirs debate over risky research
Lab-made coronavirus related to SARS can infect human cells.
Editors’ note, March 2020: We are aware that this story is being used as the basis for unverified theories that the novel coronavirus causing COVID-19 was engineered. There is no evidence that this is true; scientists believe that an animal is the most likely source of the coronavirus.
12 November 2015
An experiment that created a hybrid version of a bat coronavirus — one related to the virus that causes SARS (severe acute respiratory syndrome) — has triggered renewed debate over whether engineering lab variants of viruses with possible pandemic potential is worth the risks.
In an article published in Nature Medicine1 on 9 November, scientists investigated a virus called SHC014, which is found in horseshoe bats in China. The researchers created a chimaeric virus, made up of a surface protein of SHC014 and the backbone of a SARS virus that had been adapted to grow in mice and to mimic human disease. The chimaera infected human cells airway — proving that the surface protein of SHC014 has the necessary structure to bind to a key receptor on the cells and to infect them. It also caused disease in mice, but did not kill them.
Although almost all coronaviruses isolated from bats have not been able to bind to the key human receptor, SHC014 is not the first that can do so. In 2013, researchers reported this ability for the first time in a different coronavirus isolated from the same bat population2.
- Viral-research moratorium called too broad
- US suspends risky disease research
- Biosafety in the balance
The findings reinforce suspicions that bat coronaviruses capable of directly infecting humans (rather than first needing to evolve in an intermediate animal host) may be more common than previously thought, the researchers say.
But other virologists question whether the information gleaned from the experiment justifies the potential risk. Although the extent of any risk is difficult to assess, Simon Wain-Hobson, a virologist at the Pasteur Institute in Paris, points out that the researchers have created a novel virus that “grows remarkably well” in human cells. “If the virus escaped, nobody could predict the trajectory,” he says.
Creation of a chimaera
The argument is essentially a rerun of the debate over whether to allow lab research that increases the virulence, ease of spread or host range of dangerous pathogens — what is known as ‘gain-of-function’ research. In October 2014, the US government imposed a moratorium on federal funding of such research on the viruses that cause SARS, influenza and MERS (Middle East respiratory syndrome, a deadly disease caused by a virus that sporadically jumps from camels to people).
The latest study was already under way before the US moratorium began, and the US National Institutes of Health (NIH) allowed it to proceed while it was under review by the agency, says Ralph Baric, an infectious-disease researcher at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, a co-author of the study. The NIH eventually concluded that the work was not so risky as to fall under the moratorium, he says.
But Wain-Hobson disapproves of the study because, he says, it provides little benefit, and reveals little about the risk that the wild SHC014 virus in bats poses to humans.
Other experiments in the study show that the virus in wild bats would need to evolve to pose any threat to humans — a change that may never happen, although it cannot be ruled out. Baric and his team reconstructed the wild virus from its genome sequence and found that it grew poorly in human cell cultures and caused no significant disease in mice.
“The only impact of this work is the creation, in a lab, of a new, non-natural risk,” agrees Richard Ebright, a molecular biologist and biodefence expert at Rutgers University in Piscataway, New Jersey. Both Ebright and Wain-Hobson are long-standing critics of gain-of-function research.
In their paper, the study authors also concede that funders may think twice about allowing such experiments in the future. “Scientific review panels may deem similar studies building chimeric viruses based on circulating strains too risky to pursue,” they write, adding that discussion is needed as to “whether these types of chimeric virus studies warrant further investigation versus the inherent risks involved”.
But Baric and others say the research did have benefits. The study findings “move this virus from a candidate emerging pathogen to a clear and present danger”, says Peter Daszak, who co-authored the 2013 paper. Daszak is president of the EcoHealth Alliance, an international network of scientists, headquartered in New York City, that samples viruses from animals and people in emerging-diseases hotspots across the globe.
Studies testing hybrid viruses in human cell culture and animal models are limited in what they can say about the threat posed by a wild virus, Daszak agrees. But he argues that they can help indicate which pathogens should be prioritized for further research attention.
Without the experiments, says Baric, the SHC014 virus would still be seen as not a threat. Previously, scientists had believed, on the basis of molecular modelling and other studies, that it should not be able to infect human cells. The latest work shows that the virus has already overcome critical barriers, such as being able to latch onto human receptors and efficiently infect human airway cells, he says. “I don’t think you can ignore that.” He plans to do further studies with the virus in non-human primates, which may yield data more relevant to humans.
Is this USEFUL RESEARCH?
The Corona Virus is not the first man-made bug,
which has escaped…
