    Get studying! Off you go and find out. Individual Investigation works wonders!
    I don't flog Deism on Christian forums...... that's proselytizing.

        • Moving forward......
          Results are coming in from France........

          https://www.connexionfrance.com/Fren...19-coronavirus

          Tests conducted with trained German Shepherds at a veterinary school in Maisons-Alfort (Val-de-Marne) show a 95% success rate in sniffing out the coronavirus that causes Covid-19.

          Weeks of trails have produced positive results at veterinary school and research centre l'École Nationale Vétérinaire in Maisons-Alfort, where researchers say their German Shepherds have been trained to detect coronavirus.

          During the trial, the dogs had to identify the presence of the virus by smelling sweat samples taken from subjects who were infected with Covid-19.

          The school partnered with hospital Beaujon de Clichy to collect sweat samples from both infected and non-infected subjects. The sweat samples were then used to soak pieces of cotton wool which were placed inside metal cones.

            I don't have to deal with any of this foolishness, and you don't have to support every foolish thing you see posted here just because the author agrees with you.

              If you're not going to engage the debate then stop talking about how easy it would all be to refute.

              Put up or shut up.

                Do these dogs ever give false indications? Yes!

                Can you tell by looking at these dogs what it is they're trained to detect? No!


                This Wuhan Virus outbreak is the biggest leap forward for left wing, command and control, big government socialism that the world has seen since the eugenics craze in the early 20th century. It too was aimed at wiping out, or at least reducing, disease and was sold as a public health issue. (Ironically, it's the same sort of people who supported manipulation of the human gene pool who now act as if genetically modified corn is something to be scared of.)

                Every time something scary happens we loose large chunks of our freedom to the point now where it seems our liberty, what of it there is left, might literally be going to the dogs.

                So, back to the debate:

                Dogs are used to check for explosives and drugs. Maybe it will work for this virus- it's worth checking.
                Infected people aren't criminals- but they are dangerous to everybody around them. So we need to identify them. It's true that this cuts into personal freedom, but so do many other things that are accepted in free societies. Even a traffic light limits me. In this case, the balance is tipped heavily towards curtailing personal freedom. It's unfortunate, but that's the case.

                And it is called COVID-19. Calling it the "Wuhan" virus is a xenophobic attempt to lay the blame for 100,000 American deaths on the Chinese.

                  Hi.........
                  Yes, dogs can be life-savers in many ways. They are being used to identify Parkinson's, some cancers and malaria, humans in building collapses, humans hiding in aircraft undercarriages and lorries........ all of these jobs saving lives. And of course you have mentioned explosives, various drugs...... and more.

                  If Covid-dogs can help to open up retail, travel, services, commerce and industry more quickly then President Trump will embrace their value.......... and then mindless sheep like Clete will accept them immediately, I expect, and within no time will be telling us that his President thought of the idea.

                    I prefer "Chinese Flu"

                    is a xenophobic
                    That's retarded

                    Stop being retarded

                    The Chinese government is directly responsible for the deaths of not only 100,000 Americans, but countless others around the globe

                        The Chinese are not directly responsible. Repeating that foolishness doesn't make it true.

                        And calling somebody "retarded" in a discussion is a sad way for someone to defend their bad ideas. It's a sign that you don't have anything real to say.

                          Well, it depends on the country and city. Greece never did much COVID. Italy has finally gotten it under control. Here (Israel), we've managed fairly well, though there are some new cases cropping up, especially in schools that were recently reopened. In the US, the known new cases per day has leveled off at only 20,000 per day. Likewise for deaths, only 1,000 per day. New Zealand is just about done with the virus.

                          Oddly enough, all of the aforementioned countries had exactly the same information about the virus.

                            And the murder hornets? Are they cued up for AFTER the race riots?

                            Who's in charge of this?
