  • To put it into perspective.. If you account for the population of the Western World and you calculate that approximately 36% of that population are of working-age adults... That's roughly 409,488,120 people who are adults who earn a living (not retired). If each of those people pitched in $80 to the cause ($10/month for 8 months or $5/month for 16 months), that would bring in $32.76 billion dollars for research efforts. I for one would gladly pay $80 to secure not only my future but also future generations. $80 is a hell of a lot better than a year of lost wages!

  • The ugly woke idiot has finally been identified. COVID-19 was a dress rehearsal for the next biological attack. Social engineering was the agenda not the solution. This man made virus (it has been proven as lab created and not from animals) we even know the lab it came from and continue to give them millions of US dollars. Oliver is not funny and I’ll-informed. Time to get someone who ‘gets’ comedy.

  • I guess viruses have been with us sine the beginning of time and they can and have been known to mutate into something worse. The ocean alone has over 400 thousand viruses in it supposedly. I wonder if it's because of all the toxic waste, pollution, run off and plastic humans throw into it all the time. Actually no I don't wonder really. It's likely a contributing factor. In some parts of the world, there are lakes so deadly to any life, that no one and no other forms of life on earth even dare to go near them. There are some parts of the world where viruses thrive on and within the land and plant life alone, even without the help of human kind. I think humanity was simply a mistake as it seems too primitive to even keep itself truly safe. If aliens do exist, they're just going to let us all wipe our own selves out and they wouldn't have any real interest in us, other than to maybe keep some of us around as a sort of a petri dish experiment or for who even really knows what other reason.

  • Consider where your soul will spend eternity, heaven or hell. You don’t want to end up in hell because you rejected the Sacrifice Jesus has made all who repent and turn to him by faith. We are all guilty of sin. We lie, steal and look with lust in our hearts. We are all Guilty before a Holy and Righteous God. GOD is not just all loving and overlook your sin. He is loving, but sin He will Judge because He is Perfectly good. The Good news is God the Father sent His Son Jesus Christ who was perfectly Holy to pay the penalty for your and my sin out of Love for us. We can’t keep the Law we break most all commandments. But Jesus fulfilled ALL by his perfect thoughts, words, deeds and motives for us because we could not. Jesus loved all humans and God the Father perfectly. Turn, repent of your sin and confess Your thankfulness for what Jesus did for you. Put your faith in the perfection and the righteousness of Christ. Jesus was raised from death to give you new life; death has been defeated. Out of love and grace eternal life is promised to those who have faith ,,,, ,,, ,, , , , ,,, , , ,, , , .,.,,.,.,,.,,,.,,..

  • Hey! Environmental scientist here. This link between global health and deforestation/ wet markets has been known a long time. One thing we need to acknowledge is the source of these problems: poverty. You can’t solve these issues without realizing that the state of our economic system today is what is leading to these realities. To anyone looking for a gentle introduction to this topic, I would highly recommend the book "Braiding Sweetgrass". The book reads like a warm hug and is written by an Indigenous scientist.

  • If things begin to develop into a false direction nature / evolution has it's own way to correct this. And pandemics like Covid-19 are one of them. As humans get so many that they begin to act as earth's locusts a correction is necessary, otherwise we bring the whole system to a crashing halt, leaving tens of billions of humans on a planet no more capable of hosting earth's usual animal life and incapable to deliver food and water for all of us. And instead to react the right way by decreasing our numbers slowly every politician is ringing the alarm bell as the population numbers stop growing. Instead praising this healthy trend those idiots cry for state incentives to restart the growth of the population again. Just WHY ???

  • I feel I do need to correct something John said. SARS-COV-2 is NOT a zoonotic disease. It did something which we call species hop moving from one species to another a single time. Zoonotic diseases can jump back and forth or infect both humans and at least one animal species at once. West Nile Virus, Lyme disease and Rabies are all examples of zoonotic diseases. HIV, and swine flu are examples of diseases which made the species jump but can no longer able to infect the species from whence it came or transfer to other species.

Citing basically every concern on this show for doing so....yet when it's us over populating and killing the planet it's fine. Every global level threat can be mitigated with one solution...population control. Pandemics. Energy crisis. Global warming. Deforestation etc etc I'm not advocating for a mass cull (though that WILL be the outcome if we do nothing) currently our global birth rate is higher than the deaths....that's an unsustainable growth regardless of out current population.
