Latest ERV readers comment about Rebbecca Culshaws devastating take-down of HIV/AIDS Dogma:
Culshaw claims that "endogenous retroviruses are primarily transmitted perinatally, from mother to child" ( p.45).
No way. No friggen way. There is no goddamn way she is serious.

If ERVs were transmitted perinatally... THEY WOULD BE EXOGENOUS RETROVIRUSES.
Sure she could play the 'Gosh golly, Im not a scientist' card* with some of her other claims, but you just have to have a dictionary to call BS on that sentence! No WAY she can be serious!
For a more sciency answer to that-- Okay, so each ERV is present in every cell of your body. Every cell, with each ERV in the EXACT same location. And Culshaw says that this doesnt happen through germ lines getting infected with RVs (becoming ERVs). No, this happens when infants are infected perinatally with exogenous retroviruses resulting in an effect called endogenous retroviruses. Yeah, her explanation makes a lot more sense. *blink* I dont want to know how she thinks this deep, deep understanding of ERVs relates to HIV. I dont want to know.
*When backed into a corner over idiotic claims they make-- Deniers and Creationists like to revert from "Im smart! Listen to me! EVERYONE IS WRONG BUT MEEEEEE!!!" to "Look at that meanie scientist picking on someone who just wants to learn! Boo hoo hooooo!!!"
