    I was going to say that's not helpful, but I won't.

    I'll leave it at dishonest. That's not what he said, and you know it, and you don't care.

    Surely you can recognize sarcasm, Jerk.

    I suppose the epithet "jerk" was really needed.

    Cowpoke truncated the post. It was dishonest. But since CP is a "good" Christian, it is excused.

    The response to past epidemics caused much criticism of the government from both within China and without. The tensions between openness, with the potential of spreading unsound rumors via social media, and tight control of information to ensure scientific precision, to portray competence is a continual problem which governments need to resolve, even for the US.

    So, in your little hypercrtical know-it-all world, sarcasm has become "dishonesty".

    And, ALWAYS feel free to declare something is not "helpful". That's SO... um.... "helpful".

    The thread has drifted into the name calling mudslinging pig sti.

    I watched the video, and it remains hypothetical, and circumstantial evidence does not stand the test of evidence. There is no record of lab personnel getting the virus early, The consumption of the wild animals and the transmission of coronaviruses to humans has a long history. This one just started a pandemic.

    The genetic research publications I presented are based on science, and the conclusions are most likely natural origins. The most likely animal has matching DNA and is sold and consumed in Wuhan via the Wuhan market.

    Statement form the administration:

    The theory, which has not yet been corroborated, is reportedly one of multiple possibilities the U.S. is investigating.

    The latest developments come days after the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Army Gen. Mark Milley, told reporters that the U.S. intelligence community was taking "a hard look" at the theory.

    "I would just say, at this point, it's inconclusive, although the weight of evidence seems to indicate natural [origin]. But we don't know for certain," he said, referring to the likelihood that the virus originated naturally, rather than in a lab setting.
