    Oh, and by the way, once you realise that 1, 2, and 3 are plausible, with 1 and 2 being most likely the case, you should retract the accusation of trolling.
    Remember that you are dust and to dust you shall return.

    You're free to draw all the faulty conclusions you want.

    For 3), because the Chinese reacted as if it was a bioweapon.
    See this is better trolling Demi, this is a nebulous statement that requires a lot of unpacking, without saying anything at all. So you're freer to pull in weird articles or make broad unspecific claims. That way you can engage in fact-free conspiracy thinking. At any rate, you're vastly overestimating the competence of the Chinese government.

    As it stands it's a virus we've known variants of since the sixties, it exists in the animal population, the variants we've known of were already infectious to humans and now this particular variant has crossed over and has caused what amounts an epidemic that still has yet to breach 5% of the number of people killed by the flu season.

    You're free to dismiss.

    Good, we are progressing to point 1) about how it's not serious.

    I could care less about those points Demi. I will only discuss point 3 (that the corona virus is a bioweapon) in this thread. The rest is all you.

    You don't care about how serious it is, or how governments have been responding? Obvious BS, you know I'm right on these first two points.

    This is normal. Demi predicts Trumpslide of 2016, 'demi you're trolling!!!!!' and then electoral vote landslide.

    Demi predicts that Trump will actually be good, 'demi you're trolling!!!!!' and then conservatives here start to agree a couple of years later.

    Then people start to learn, but slowly.

    I'm debating your claim that the coronavirus is a bioweapon. It's up to you whether you want to do that or not.

    You can't disprove the claim conclusively, nor can I prove it conclusively. There remains only disagreement on which conclusion is the best inference.

    I am not asking you to prove it, I am asking you to argue for it convincingly, or to argue why the natural explanation I gave is inadequate. Either you're able to do that, or you're not. There's no shame in admitting the latter.
