HIV Denial in the Internet Era

Tara and Steven Novella have a PLoS paper up called 'HIV Denial in the Internet Era.' Wonderful introduction to HIV Denial!

My only complaint: Doesnt mention my most favorite person in the universe. Ah well, Tara and Novella ignoring her makes me feel good too.

Bonus that makes up for my complaint: Steves got a cool blog!

Actually, it does mention your favourite person:

'Similarly, mathematical modeler Dr. Rebecca Culshaw, another HIV denier, states: “As someone who has been raised by parents who taught me from a young age never to believe anything just because ‘everyone else accepts it to be true,’ I can no longer just sit by and do nothing, thereby contributing to this craziness”.'

Creationist headlines: ERV caught in untruth!

It happened again! my comment changed, because I originally wrote: "...and I believed that Peter Duesberg was very unique *sigh*". Anyway.

Tara-- Hope you have a good spam filter :(

ian-- Thank goodness I dont like them. I couldnt even name a song of theirs. But if Bowie ever comes out as a Denier or Creationist, put me on suicide watch.

Israel-- Dont worry, Blogger hates everyone. Quirks are expected :P
