Why cant Wooers use PubMed?

I mean, I know PubMed doesnt have the *best* search engine, its no Google, but like, its not THAT hard to maneuver. Why cant Wooers/Deniers/Creationists/etc figure it out? Good god, Horowitz is an "internationally known authority in the overlapping fields of public health, behavioral science, emerging diseases, and natural healing"... and hes baffled by the PubMed search engine?

You get the idea. Took me ~5 minutes to find those. Its not hard.

Translation of those papers: They found the exact colonies of chimpanzees where we got HIV-1 Group M and N. They found the exact colony of gorillas where we got HIV-1 Group O. The SIV found in chimpanzees where polio vaccinations were supposedly contaminated with SIV, dont match HIV. HIV didnt come from 'contaminated' vaccines.

Quote IG: "Dr. Horowitz, unequivocally, claims that HIV is man-made. He says he has evidence for his claims."

He might have that 'evidence', but PubMed doesnt. Wonder why...

'an "internationally known authority in the overlapping fields of public health, behavioral science, emerging diseases, and natural healing"'

Sure. Jack of all trades and master of none?

I always laugh at people who bill themselves as "internationally known", as if that meant anything. Other than that they have a friend across the border in Canada, that is.

Hahaha I know! Kansas City International Airport: "We fly to Mexico City!"

And its not 'internationally known author/speaker/etc'-- Its 'internationally known authority.'

Like Kris said-- and 'authority' that cant publish a peer-reviewed article for a PubMed listing. Riiiiiight!

Well, to be fair, two of his books are in the Royal Library's Science branch here in Copenhagen, which is connected to the University of Copenhagen. But so, so is Evidence of Harm - know your eneny and all that.

Hah ha!! Yes this guy is hilarious, but remember, his strength will be in confusing the listeners with pouring out so many of his ideas (I hesitate to call them facts), that it becomes difficult to address them. Luckily IG is great at moderating such stuff! Keep an outline of your basic answers in front of you. Go get em'!!

I completely agree-- that is what he'll do.

Luckily I got to see The Gish Gallup in action before (Brad Harrub), so I know what to expect.
