This is not a debate.
Firstly, this was all started by Michael Balter, who posted a "best link"
against HIV skeptics (-- and now, as usual, Balter wants the discussion ended).
Secondly, I noticed that the thoroughly referenced article omits references
for "HIV isolation".
Thirdly, I asked for these crucial references. That's ALL.
We now have certainty about "HIV". And that is, the "best link" doesn't
reference the foundational data for 'HIV', .i.e., 'HIV isolation'.
This finding is indisputable.
I'm asking that the moderators warn Balter, again, that ad homimen arguments
are off limits.
