  6. We are no longer allowing posts or threads that deny the existence of Covid-19. Members have lost loved ones to this virus and are grieving. As a Christian site, we do not need to add to the pain of the loss by allowing posts that deny the existence of the virus that killed their loved one. Future post denying the Covid-19 existence, calling it a hoax, will be addressed via the warning system.

    More misrepresentation - you (and everyone else) knows that I am simply "attacking" the systematic lying we see here.

    Guilty as charged.

    A lie is the telling of information that the person who tells it knows it to be untrue at the time he tells it.

    I believe that you could.
    You’ve certainly have had your share of...”choice” (I’ll go with), flames, directed at you, to deal with.
    I salute your thick skin!

    Fortunately, the news is not quite so dire.

    Advances have been made in conquering and mitigating many of the various forms of cancer to this date. This has come about through the same medical research that enables us to live almost twice the lifetimes that our forefathers did.

    Cancer killed my grandfather ... and grand-uncle.

    My dad, uncle, brother and niece have all had cancer and survived.

    It is no longer an absolute death sentence ... thanks, largely, to medical research.

    This is one I didn't catch.

    You can't watch CNN or MSNBC without seeing the daily numbers.

    Likely, NBC, CBS, ABC, and CNBC, as well.

    FOX, OAN, NewsMax, ... I couldn't say ... but I do recall that they were trying to convince us that COVID was a hoax at one time ...

    Well ... thousands of Americans were dying every day.

    I guess that's a legitimate reason ...

    I care because many of those who are choosing not be vaccinated will die or be seriously hurt; I don't want others to be hurt even if it's because they made a poorly informed choice. I care because many of those choosing not to be vaccinated will infect others who couldn't be vaccinated, or for whom the vaccine didn't work, and so will contribute to the suffering and death of others. I care because the more people who aren't vaccinated, the more likely the virus will be to mutate into yet more dangerous forms, causing yet more suffering and death.

    In short, how could any compassionate -- or even self-interested -- person not care?

    yep. "They haven't cured cancer" is a silly argument. Because:

    A.) There isn't one "cancer". There's a ton of types of cancer caused by different things. You're not going to find a single cure for "cancer".
    B.) There's, as you mentioned, treatments for cancer available today that do allow people to be cancer free or otherwise control it so they can live long, full lives rather than dying.

    My aunt, who just went through cancer treatment, and so far it looks like the cancer is gone, would have died within a year or two had she gotten this cancer 20 years ago.

    That's where individual people (like you and me) can actually have a voice, at least for the moment. Someday, only the elites (experts and government sources) will be heard. Meanwhile, we should voluntarily ignore individuals.

    How did we ever survive before the internet -- or 24 talking heads on cable TV telling people what they want to hear?

    Guess that was before your time...

    Yes. It is fraught with peril for people who don't understand the different between unconfirmed anecdotes and actual research.

    There were some CFers who taught
    "The-vaccine-your-blood-surely-will-clot"
    But Covid disease
    more likely will tease
    Your blood platelets into a knot.


    Reference:
    Covid-19 is associated with a far greater risk of cerebral venous thrombosis than the vaccinations that protect against it, early research from the University of Oxford has shown

    This!!!!!! Thank you! Individual people have a voice on social media. You can't the the word out unless you are on some kind of social media. You sure can't do it on TV. With that being said..you can't trust everyone...but some people do spread the truth of what's going on.

    I dont know why Christians attack each other. That was a pretty smart comment to me. Of course I know you can't trust EVERYTHING...but some people do have a truthful voice on SM.

    There are currently 583000 deaths of American citizens attributed to COVID-19 - given that half of the nation have been vaccinated at least once, 5,800 of them have tested positive and 74 died!

    Apparently this thread is based on the misguided assumption that these COVID-19 vaccines claimed to be 100% effective - it is to be expected that 5-10% of those vaccinated will not become immune!

    Are you saying we should only listen to the elitists?

    It explains why the social media platforms are now clamping down on free speech there. Once they shut out conservative voices while providing a free pass to everyone else, they control the voice of the people.

    The virus had a head start on the vaccine.
