A tacit admission that the so-called vaccines don't really work.“This is not going to be eradicated, and it’s not going to be eliminated,” Fauci told ABC’s “This Week.”
So it only took him two years to come around to accepting what I've suggested all along.“And what’s going to happen is that we’re going to see that each individual is going to have to make their calculation of the amount of risk that they want to take.”
Naarh...... I've never understood believers' affinity for Heaven; if there is indeed an afterlife for the nebulous and highly dubious concept of a "soul" - then unlike life, death is for an eternity!! At least some religions believe in re-incarnation - which logically means that death is temporary (albeit, it does beg the question of what happens when this lonely blue planet is no more - but I digress).Sure, but in that case I think it's still a hope that things go well for the person in it's given to; i.e. that his soul will go to heaven rather than that other place.
Or perhaps they noticed the data in UKHSA reports that have consistently shown a higher infection rate (per 100,000 people) among the vaxed than the unvaxed since around the beginning of the year? Sadly, they've stopped publishing them; I suppose they were just too embarrassing and too many people refused to believe all the hand-waving in those reports claiming that the data shouldn't be interpreted to mean what it shows.My friend who has serious health issues and his girlfriend (who is NHS staff) are now on their third bout of Covid and STILL they refuse to have the vaccine... impossible!
No, the "faith based conviction" is that these injections will keep one from catching this virus, despite all the evidence that they don't.your example supports my suspicion that there is a substantial "religious-like belief" in anti-vaccination; a faith based conviction, rather than a position based on facts!!
@Uwe: we keep having this discussion - when we shouldn't because the facts cannot be in dispute!No, the "faith based conviction" is that these injections will keep one from catching this virus, despite all the evidence that they don't.
Yet @Crasher seems to think it would keep his "friend who has serious health issues and his girlfriend (who is NHS staff)" from having caught it or catching it again.NOT one single manufacturer of COVID vaccine has ever (repeat "ever" for emphasis) maintained that their medicine "will keep one from catching the virus".
That's the difference between public perceptions and manufacturers claims - which, as is usually the case, are not the same.
One is vreihen himself, one is our own Eric, and I probably should know who the third person is, but I'm drawing a blank. The picture was taken last summer at a memorial get-together for Jack.
