It Is Not Just For Conspiracy Theorists Anymore

#1 Post by Spock » Tue Jan 05, 2021 6:23 pm

In-Depth New York Mag article on the Lab Leak hypothesis.

The Lab Leak theory that I have held for months continues to gain traction.

>>>"A lab accident — a dropped flask, a needle prick, a mouse bite, an illegibly labeled bottle — is apolitical. Proposing that something unfortunate happened during a scientific experiment in Wuhan — where COVID-19 was first diagnosed and where there are three high-security virology labs, one of which held in its freezers the most comprehensive inventory of sampled bat viruses in the world — isn’t a conspiracy theory. It’s just a theory. It merits attention,"<<<<

That's by Nicholson Baker. Is that the fiction writer? If so, he has no more credentials than you do.
