Reposting from another thread. Just thought people could use the info. Michael Osterholm is an expert on infectious diseases. He wrote a book predicting this would happen 2 years ago. He predicted the type of disease and even the place of origin. It’s not something to ignore. This podcast is very informative. He answers every question you could have about the virus straight up. How serious it is. Estimated numbers. How prepared we are. Preventive measures etc. Well worth a watch if you have the time.

Ah. Such a wise and insightful response. You must feel proud. As he outlines in great detail in the video. It is not just the flu. It is significantly more than that. It is foolish to stay willfully ignorant of these things and dismiss them.

And flu season is coming to a close right now FYI. This isn’t a seasonal bug. That’s also in the video.

Ok big shot with sarcasm. The "flu" isn't seasonal either. It's a virus. So any time any where. and if this is God's plan what's an informative YT conspiracy theory video gonna do about it?

I hope you have fun in your room playing blitz all day every day in fear of a virus that God put the ability in our body to fight off. I'm gonna shake hands and be outside. I've beat other cornana viruses dozens of times in my life.

Lol wow. You’re a bright one huh? Have you seriously never heard of flu season? It’s a virus. And it’s seasonal. Genius. This one isn’t. What’s next? Conspiracy? Hmm. It’s the man’s job. His actual profession that he spends all his time on and gets paid for is to track, study,  prevent, and inform on infectious diseases. Literally doing your job is in no way a conspiracy theory lol. Do you even read the things you type before posting? Do they actually make sense to you beforehand? Because that’s just embarrassing. And fear. Another word you clearly don’t understand. Being aware of current events and what to expect is pretty basic adult life. Continuing a policy of willful ignorance on current events will get you nowhere fast but I expect you are too young to understand that. Only a moron attacks people for spreading factual information. I really don’t know what you expect from doing this. No one thinks you are cool. You only look like an idiot.

Lol omg dude. You have comprehension problems. That is not what he says in the video. And nowhere is anyone taking about fear but you. Being informed and afraid are two different things. It is just something to watch. And take seriously. That is all.

A) You can’t prove your assertion that there is some (insert deity of choice here). How stunningly arrogant. 
B) We can prove that there is virus.

C) Your arrogance is astounding and I hope that this hubris-driven behavior collides with the reality of the virus and evolution’s selective process kicks in; not resulting in death, but a good lesson.

D) You should no longer be welcome into intelligent discussion on this matter. 
 

I’ve not watched the video but suspect Beetlebrain is one of those “I’m smarter than the consensus view of the majority of experts; because muh feelings” kinda guys. The USA is self-selecting for morons and that is why our nation is in the condition it is in; diminished on the world stage in all but brute force.

It is called motivation bias via motivated reasoning. 
 

He’s removed himself from nuanced and intelligent discussion on the matter. Ignore the troll.

Thank you Meat Locker. I 100% intended to point out his “my opinion is more accurate than the highly educated professionals simply because I want it to be” mindset. I accidentally left it out of my response so thank you. And your thoughts on natural selection, hard non fatal  lessons, and the state of our country align perfectly with mine. Well articulated and welcome.

I’m tempted to post extracts but everyone should read the entirety of the summary. It is the best distillation of complex material on the subject that I’ve been able to find.

The Fermi Paradox is something that I’ve always found intriguing and is much discussed at Meat_Locker Manor. I can see this “filtering” happening on a smaller relative scale in which countries are permanently altered or deleted faster than a Borsig rushing the hill on Mines. Rome, Mesopotamia, Ancient Egypt.., another great fracturing of American society w/30% of the population seceding to FL? :(
 

P.S. Austria (8.8 million people [fewer than NYC]) is testing more people per day than the USA (330 million people)

Thanks and ‘with pleasure’. I can’t believe we still have to have face these immature lines of argumentation in our current age and daily lives, but here we are. 
Would you consider changing the title of the thread to something more targeted and less general?
