RTE Roundtable Talk #17: Synthetic Fingerprint of SARS-CoV-2
Featuring Alex Washburne, PhD and Kevin McKernan, PhD
Edit: As of now, There are well over 200k views of this conversation, primarily on Rumble, after being shared by Dr. Mercola.
This felt like one of our best discussions yet at Rounding the Earth. And after 30-something months of what has felt like a broken media firehose, it's great to finally see some scientists putting forth arguments from the domain of statistical genetics, testing the hypothesis of a lab-made SARS-CoV-2 virus.
It is noteworthy that YouTube demonetized our video just minutes into the livestream.
I would usually write more, but there is a lot drawing my attention, and this topic would take many hours to lay out in print in a way that would add to the conversation, so I'm just going to point you to the interview with Alex Washburne (co-author of the new paper in preprint) and Kevin McKernan (our recurring genomics expert guest).
I may update this post later with some addendums about online discussion taking place around this research.
Addendum 1: Sequence engineering cost.
Addendum 2: Special thanks to Charles Rixey for the introduction to Alex.
Rounding the Earth is moving community to Locals.com. This link will grant a month of insider access, though you can follow us there for free (paid subscribers will be invited to exclusive live conversations and other perks):
More to come on what we're planning there.
Please subscribe and help our video channels grow so that we can continue to create educational content and commit time to serious investigations of serious topics. And share your favorite videos gratuitously. Lead your friends to take a look. Be gentle, but persuasive. Or maybe just with those friends who might be most interested in each conversation. Twist some arms if you need to. It's for the greater good. It's for…The Science.
And it's safe. And effective.
Or maybe it's just part of some individual journeys, and for people wondering how to weave those journeys into a fabric strong enough to resist tyranny.
You can watch us live on most Tuesdays at 1 PM Eastern, or watch us separately on Mondays or Fridays at 1 PM Eastern and during some random evenings for RTE Raw discussions, such as this exploration of the Iatrogenocide hypothesis. The RTE podcast is on numerous platforms including Rumble, YouTube, Bitchute, Odysee, Stitcher, Spotify, Apple, RokFin, and some other places that Liam knows better about than I do. You can also visit our sponsors, which now includes a growing list of book recommendations. Written transcripts will be available for paid subscribers at randomly delayed dates. We thank all of our supporters and hope that you get something excellent out of each discussion.
While we won our first censorship battle with YouTube, we are still leaning more toward Rumble for some controversial broadcasts.
