Science lessons from self-appointed expert Chris Thompson
I hadn't heard of Chris Thompson either, but he claims to know something I don't know about the sudden deaths. So I'm hoping he'll set the record straight since he's an expert on science.
I’ve never heard of Chris Thompson before today.
He apparently has few followers judging by this post where he proclaims with great certainty that “there is no reason to believe that the vaccine contributed to” the death of Shane Warne.
So I guess Chris must be an expert on the topic, but you wouldn’t know that by the number of likes (only 5).
But what got my attention is that he’s schooling Aseem Malhotra on what science is after Aseem retweeted the new VSRF video that everyone should watch, like, and forward:
The big confusion
I am really trying to be a good student of science here, but I must confess I find that Chris doesn’t explain it very well.
He says essentially you shouldn’t make unsubstantiated claims if you want to be believed.
Then he says that many of the deaths in the video likely had nothing to do with the vaccines. Which is an unsubstantiated claim.
So didn’t Chris just do what he said not to do?
Who is more credible?
Aseem has an h-index of 15 with 1,632 citations.
Chris Thompson has an h-index of zero AFAIK. It’s not even clear he’s ever published a paper anywhere.
So Chris, if we are confused about who to believe about science, please explain why we should believe you and not Aseem as this is not super clear to me (and my readers).
My questions for Chris
Which deaths in our video had nothing to do with the vaccine and how do you KNOW that? Did you do the autopsy on these people and run the proper stains to check for vaccine involvement? As everyone knows, I don’t want to spread misinformation, so if you have proof the vaccine wasn’t involved in any of these deaths, please provide it and we’ll be happy to fix the video, OK?
Will you debate me on vaccine safety? Or do you believe that science doesn’t allow debate after the COVID vaccines rolled out (like it used to allow in the past)? Use the Contact me form.
The one thing nearly all of us misinformation spreaders have in common is…
We welcome discussion and debate on our views.
All of the people who disagree with us insist on censorship and/or no discussion. They want us to believe that THEY are the experts on how science works, but they won’t debate that with us either.
Chris and others need to explain to us why not a single one of the vaccine supporters will engage in a scientific discussion with the people that they attack.
Chris: I’m attacking your reputation but I’m willing to have a public recorded discussion with you about it if you disagree.
You are attacking Aseem’s reputation. Are you willing to have a public discussion with him?
Please watch our new video and give it a like and spread the word. Twitter doesn’t want you to view this so they are heavily censoring it:
Our billboards (yes there is more than one) go up outside of CDC headquarters on Tues. I can’t wait.
