What is the difference between science and religion?
Religion is based on faith. Its precepts are not negotiable or open for debate. They come from God.
Science is the rational exploration of the natural world. It is based on questioning and experimentation. There is no unquestioned, universal truth. Everything is open to debate.
By this measure, Anthony Fauci is no longer even arguably a scientist. He is now the high priest of some kind of new-age religion that insists that lockdowns and mass vaccination are the only possible responses to the COVID pandemic.
In 1633, Chief Inquisitor Father Vincenzo Maculano da Firenzuola, appointed by Pope Urban VIII, began the inquisition of astronomer Galileo Galilei. Galileo was accused of heresy. He had dared to suggest that the Earth circled the Sun rather than the other way around. His views violated scripture. They could not be tolerated.
The result was preordained. Galileo was convicted and sentenced to prison. The sentence was subsequently modified to house arrest. Galileo, one of the greatest scientific minds in history, died isolated and muzzled.
“We pronounce, judge, and declare, that you, the said Galileo… have rendered yourself vehemently suspected by this Holy Office of heresy, that is, of having believed and held the doctrine (which is false and contrary to the Holy and Divine Scriptures) that the sun is the center of the world, and that it does not move from east to west, and that the earth does move, and is not the center of the world.”
“We order that by a public edict the book of Dialogues of Galileo Galilei be prohibited, and We condemn thee to the prison of this Holy Office during Our will and pleasure; and as a salutary penance We enjoin on thee that for the space of three years thou shalt recite once a week the Seven Penitential Psalms.”Galileo’s conviction
It took the Catholic Church over 300 years to admit that Galileo was right and to clear his name of heresy.
Fauci’s positions in regard to the COVID pandemic are no less misguided and devoid of scientific basis than were those of the Catholic Church in the 1600s. In point of fact, Fauci is a complete fraud.
Fauci has spent virtually his entire career in the United States Government riding a desk and pushing paper. He is not a world-renowned expert on anything. He was never part of planning for how to handle a pandemic. He has no background whatsoever in the realm of controlling the spread of infectious diseases.
Fauci’s singular focus for decades has been on pushing vaccines and helping Big Pharma make windfall profits. As long ago as 2000 he was meeting with Bill Gates and agreeing to a federal partnership with Gates to push vaccines worldwide. This ultimately resulted in an agreement called “The Decade of Vaccines” – the objective of which was to implement mandatory vaccinations for every adult and child on the planet by the year 2020.
A key element of “The Decade of Vaccines” concept was the creation of markets for vaccines. No longer would we simply develop vaccines for which a need existed. We would now create the demand for vaccines already under development. This would be done by the creation of what was euphemistically termed “pull programs.”
“Pull programs are arrangements designed to create a market, or increase the certainty of a market, and so improve the likelihood of a return on investment. They pay for output – in this case, the actual creation of a new medicine or vaccine – rather than input.“
“There are reasons to believe that complementing push programs with demand-based programs may be an efficient way to stimulate the development of new medicines, as they require less knowledge on the part of policy-makers about the likelihood of success of particular approaches while creating stronger internal incentives within pharmaceutical and biotech companies to identify and pursue the most promising avenues of research.”Making Markets for Vaccines, Center for Global Development
Fauci was one of the key figures in the federal response to the HIV epidemic. He failed miserably. Foreshadowing his response to COVID, Fauci suppressed the use of cheap, generic drugs that were readily available and pushed AZT – a toxic drug that killed an estimated 300,000 AIDS patients.
“AZT was a chemotherapy formulation that was so toxic it killed all the rats when they gave it to them. The inventor of AZT felt that it was unsafe for any human use, so he didn’t even patent it.”
“Very early on, the National Cancer Institute had found that when you put AZT in a culture of HIV, that killed the HIV, not surprisingly. It killed anything it touched. And so, Fauci partnered with the manufacturer of AZT … He guided that formulation through the regulatory process and tried to fast-track it. He cheated terribly on the clinical trials.”
“In the clinical trials, it was killing everybody. It literally kills everybody who takes it. But he was able to keep the people in the treatment group alive by giving them huge numbers of blood transfusions. It does keep them alive for the eight weeks, and based upon that eight-week trial, he got approval for AZT. It was unprecedented.”Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.
Galileo was not imprisoned and silenced, because his ideas threatened anyone’s safety or security. He was crushed because his ideas threatened the authority of the church. If people were allowed to think for themselves, then they might do so in other areas as well. Freethinkers could not be counted on to be obedient.
Fauci demands adherence to the obviously failed plan to end the pandemic through vaccination for the same reason. He is and has been for decades part of a government-corporate cabal dedicated to pushing vaccines worldwide and reaping windfall profits in the process. COVID presents the ultimate opportunity to cash in. No deviation from the scripture can be tolerated.
Fauci may claim to be science. He is not. He is the Inquisition.
