I would like to be on your side for I am a fervent anti-vaxer and do not believe in the virulence of covid.

But you don't help me believe when you carry on about such as 'the pcr test cannot identify it' for it clearly can and does.

Mullins pointed out that the test cannot diagnose a disease.

That's a very different thing to 'not identifying'.

In fact the test is very good at identifying the presence of certain sequences of amino acids, I believe, is what it does. i.e. a segment of DNA. Regarding Covid we're looking at mRNA so it gets 'converted' into DNA by reverse transcription but same thing, we end up with a sequence of amino acids.

But it cannot say anything at all about whether the presence of those sequences in your sample indicates you are sick or not. Nothing. It can say nothing. I just says it found it and it took me this many iterations to find it.

What you seem to me to be arguing is that this or that particular sequence of amino acids does not make 'a virus'.

You cannot argue they don't exist for they do.

And they are detected and they are 'photographed' even.

I am willing to believe they don't cause a disease though. At least not necessarily. For I'm of the belief that all these odd concatenations of amino acids are floating around on the loose all the time.

In line, I think, with 'terrain theory' I could believe that they'd become 'dangerous' only under particular concatenations of circumstances - ill health, certain ambiences, presence of toxins, etc.

I can go with you that far at least, no trouble. :)
