Felicitations to dear Baron and Baroness Rothschild and to Cindy. So the total number of people desirable is X+XY+XYZ, any more just breeds discontent and wastes resources. "A statement of fact cannot be insolent." What a scam artist he is! I just called my housemate into my computer room here so he could read this thread too. He wants to sterilize male mosquito vectors. Imagine that! Why would the global elite and Illuminati want to develop such a bioweapon anyway? Is that cause and effect science or is it Respectful Insolence pseudoscience? If you look at contemporary childhood mortality rates and contemporary fertility rates of various populations, you will see a strong inverse relationship. But for this, I might make an exception. In other words, if we raise the health care standards of these countries, chances are good that they will have fewer children and that the rate of population increase will level off, not that we will "depopulate" the Third World. Basically, Microsoft purchased a company called Rosetta Software, which develops genomic information software that Microsoft wanted to integrate into its Microsoft Amalga Life Sciences, which is described as “system the company’s Health Solutions Group has built for research institutions such as drug companies and universities” and software that “helps researchers make sense of data to develop drugs and conduct clinical trials.” Sounds fairly unremarkable, right? He is beyond the event horizon and still accelerating. While the ultra-right talking points, and usual conspiracy outlets, tend toward the gratuitously abusive when faced with anything less than agreement there is often an undercurrent of real concern. (While I love cooking, I suspect I would not really enjoy becoming a key part of a recipe myself!). Whether it's his despicable assaults on dead celebrities as having been "killed by modern medicine," his constant stream of antivaccine fear mongering, or his hilariously inept attempt to out-Chopra Deepak Chopra while mixing in liberal helpings of pure unadulterated fevered conspiracy mongering, truly no one brings home the crazy about alternative medicine the way that Mike Adams does. Such exagerations seem understandable for the developing world, but why are people in modernized nations where contraceptives are widely available taking the idea seriously? Heh. That said, it is clearly a fact most people don’t care to contemplate, much less embrace. Surely you know I’m in it to win it for the cause too. Foiled again! Why, you ask? @ David N. Brown: Here again, I was trying to be sarcastic. If you would kindly refer to your Glaxxon Shill and Minion Manual IV you will find our plan for planetary subjugation laid out in its entirety in the chapter on Operation: Monkey Brain Shrink. For those who are not aware (as I assume Mu is), a “vaccines cause sterility” rumor about a decade ago actually derailed a polio vaccination campaign in Kano, Nigeria, and is “credited” with possibly preventing the eradication of that virus in the wild. ... As did Sanger, Gates believes in the eugenist Thomas Malthus’s idea that the sustainability of the world’s resources is completely dependent upon maintaining population control. Right there, on the Gates Foundation website, is a section on vaccines that contains statements like: To improve the delivery of effective but underutilized vaccines, the Gates Foundation has partnered with the World Health Organization, GAVI, the Sabin Vaccine Institute, and Agence de MÃ©decine Preventive to “help countries vaccinate more of their children, introduce new and underused vaccines, eradicate polio, and control measles,” using these strategies: No wonder a guy like Mike Adams would hate a guy like Bill Gates, especially since Gates has pledged $10 billion for vaccination programs and been very blunt about antivaccinationists, proclaiming things like: Because the mothers who heard that lie, many of them didn’t have their kids take either pertussis or measles vaccine, and their children are dead today. A complete waste of resources. Now if we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care, reproductive health services, we could lower that by perhaps 10 or 15 percent. Lovecraft described it. This is pseudoscience skeptic BS. @8. Today is the last day that ScienceBlogs will exist. I have to say it is fascinating to watch the CTs develop in real time now. Longest day of the year (for us Northern…. Or an Asian lady. for more info: h_ttp://www.nature.com/news/2010/100721/full/466432a.html. @lilady: not I, although I wish it were so. Yet to Adams Burzysnki is a hero. Google delists Mike Adams' NaturalNews.com. We already have a "shot" to prevent pregnancy; Depo-Provera (TM) which is given to women who are in long-term monogamous relationships. We want you alive and productive for the great Egg-Mother, Her Imperial Highness Clopidogra Invicta XXIII (may she live for all time) and all of her myriad offspring. As I write this, I'm horrendously jet lagged; so I probably…, QEDCon is fast approaching (indeed, I can't believe I have to leave for Manchester tomorrow night), and because my talk there will be about the phenomenon of "integrative medicine," I've been thinking a lot about it. Oh, your just “sure” that it’s there. Therefore, the idea of developing "bioinformatic solutions" really means to develop "gene-targeting drugs and vaccines.". Of course, it's obvious from the context that Bill Gates is pointing out a general observation that better health care, which includes reproductive services and vaccines, usually leads to populations leveling off. You are wielding the terms "skepticism" and "correlation does not equal causation" as magic spells to deflect argument rather than understanding what they mean (in particular the latter) and why. Who's going to do the grunt work it takes the keep society working? for more info: h_ttp://www.nature.com/news/2010/100721/full/466432a.html. That's why I rarely post there...besides RI is so much rollicking fun. Just look at Lord Draconis's implementation for a working example of the minion concept. He beat you to it, I won’t link to it but he sells cookware already. In this context I use the term "friend" fairly loosely even as there are frequent bass notes of care. In fact, I have a hard time deciding whether Adams is a true believer who really lives his paranoid world view or a scammer with a talent for tapping into the paranoia of the more gullible. We want you alive and productive for the great Egg-Mother, Her Imperial Highness Clopidogra Invicta XXIII (may she live for all time) and all of her myriad offspring. It’s time to bring in Adolf Hitler! One of these days, fascination with this much concentrated misinformation might suck me past the event horizon of the black hole of crazy that is Mike Adams’ website. It’s just a shame that so much effort has to be directed at towards these people. Reach less accessible populations isolated by geography, culture, and religious practices. Did Climate Change Kill Off 5 Species Of Humans? Now get back to work! “I will not let you down.” And so far, he hasn’t. Sorry lilady, I misunderstood your post! Not today. If you only focus on a single gene variant, you are going to miss all the other mutations. The WHO Special Programme for Research and Training in Tropical Disease funds research programs to genetically modify/sterilize male mosquito *malaria* and **dengue fever** vectors. In biology sciences? The Shills got theirs last week but I heard a few Minions hadn't received theirs as of today. Vaccines would allow more children to survive infancy, so women wouldn’t have to have so many children in order to hedge their bets. Right there, on the Gates Foundation website, is a section on vaccines that contains statements like: To improve the delivery of effective but underutilized vaccines, the Gates Foundation has partnered with the World Health Organization, GAVI, the Sabin Vaccine Institute, and Agence de MÃ©decine Preventive to "help countries vaccinate more of their children, introduce new and underused vaccines, eradicate polio, and control measles," using these strategies: No wonder a guy like Mike Adams would hate a guy like Bill Gates, especially since Gates has pledged $10 billion for vaccination programs and been very blunt about antivaccinationists, proclaiming things like: Because the mothers who heard that lie, many of them didn't have their kids take either pertussis or measles vaccine, and their children are dead today. His foundation has also funded genetically modified mosquitoes and other mad science experiments (http://www.naturalnews.com/030940_Bill_Gates_Foundation_genetics.html).".
