  1. There was certainly no evidence that the particles named SARS-CoV-2 belong to a disease-causing virus when the pandemic was declared and coercive measures applied.
  2.  To my knowledge, there is still no evidence.  This is the case in the articles I have personally looked at.   If there is evidence I would be most thankful if I could be provided with it so I can study its merit.
  3.  Also regarding some other common diseases said to be viral, I  have not so far found any evidence that this is the case.  There appears to be no corroborating evidence and each time there is evidence supporting other hypotheses.  Once again, I would welcome any evidence of a disease caused by a virus.  I should add here that like probably the majority , I never questioned the viral, and even less the microbial thesis until last spring.   It has come as a shock to realise that so much of it is pure dogma.  I am trying to change my own daily habits according to my growing understanding. I know how difficult it is to give up cherished familiar beliefs even in the face of evidence, but here our lives, our futures, those of all future generations may be at stake.
  4.  Now, this does not mean that viral or more generally microbial diseases do not exist, that contagion is not a bona fide phenomenon.   We may have so far been unable to corroborate the thesis, ‘a disease —  a microbe’, but  may be able to do so in the future.   It is a matter of personal opinion that this is unlikely for several reasons.  i)  despite the means and efforts expended, we appear to have failed so far.  ii) the criticality of microbes for human life.  iii) the complexity of a nature beyond human comprehension.   Science can take us away from the untruths of yesterday, but we can never know whether it is taking us towards any truth.  It may be the least subjective form of knowledge, but it is far from objective due to its multiple shortcomings.  Science is beautiful and powerful precisely because it recognizes its limits.   We are each free to believe or not in the general microbial thesis.    But regarding any known disease, a microbe has either been observed and causality well established, or this has not yet been done.
  5. This also shows the importance of approaching each question from multiple perspectives.   Regarding diseases, this notably means approaching them from the point of view of equilibrium, which was modernized by among others Claude Bernard, as well as through the microbial lens.
  6.   Neither regarding Sars-CoV-2, nor any other topic, would I or any honest scientist demand to be believed on trust.  As every single scientist from the oldest days to present times has reiterated over and over again: to doubt is essential, whether it be the sayings of revered masters or of average researchers.   This does  not mean redoing the experiments oneself.  It is not possible for most of us.  But we can read their descriptions and try and comprehend whether they satisfactorily enable the conclusions derived.
