His views have been repudiated by the medical establishment.How about someone actually in the field?
By the way, the video I was originally going to share has apparently been removed from YouTube. I'm thankful to have found this reshare.
And if that video gets removed, you can find the actual video file on https://wearepaulrevere.net, linked above as well.
His views have been repudiated by the medical establishment.
You are in the very challenging position of having to search for the rare qualified dissenter and explain what motivates you to do so without coming across as a conspiracy theorist.
Why do you not go with the general consensus of the experts?
Is that normally how you make decisions? If 1 out of 100 doctors said smoking does no harm, would you believe that doctor?
Or would you go with what the overwhelming majority say?
In November 2020, social media users began sharing a video that supposedly captured a man named Dr. Roger Hodkinson stating that COVID-19 was the “biggest hoax ever perpetrated on an unsuspected public” during a city council meeting in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.
Although this sort of claim can typically be dismissed out of hand (COVID-19 is not a hoax,
and the coronavirus pandemic has resulted in more than 1.3 million deaths worldwide),
This caller in question was not the Chairman of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (nor did he claim to be in the video),
and that medical organization has released a statement distancing themselves from any association with his comments.
Covid-19 is a hoax?
Is that the hill you want to die on?
Ummm, no. It is because I am scientifically literate with an engineering degree from an Ivy League university. You?
Anyone that quotes snopes on anything isn't looking for the truth. Snopes is owned by Soros and is one guy and his girlfriend saying anything Soros pays them to say. It has no credibility at all. That said I used to believe it about 20 years ago until I investigated snopes. A lot info on snopeshas been scrubbed off the internet by Google, but some real info about it still existsBecause you say so?
It's not a conspiracy if it's happening out in the open.
Because that would be called an appeal to popularity, and an appeal to authority.
I stick to the facts.
I would look at the facts, do at least a cursory search on the effects of smoking on the human body, and find that smoking indeed does do harm, especially to the lungs.
I wouldn't do that at all, because the overwhelming majority might be wrong.
Stick to what the facts say, not what people in power say, and certainly not what they say they say.
Sorry, but he wasn't talking about Covid-19 when he said the above words.
Listen to it (again, if you haven't already). The part that Snopes misquoted follows just after his statement of his credentials, a transcript of which I have provided below, to the best of my ability.
No one said it was. No one here, at least, and certainly not Dr. Hodkinson.
Which, as far as I can tell, isn't in dispute.
Considering that's nowhere near what I said, and certainly not what Dr. Hodkinson said, what relevance does that have to this discussion?
No one said he was. I certainly didn't. Dr. Hodkinson certainly didn't.
I simply said that he was someone in the field.
wearepaulrevere This is the show from Monday, November 23rd, 2020 SUMMARY: Copy and paste the following text to Facebook: You have permission to go back to normal. No more masks, no more distance. Never grumble, never fear, for we are Paul Revere. WeArePaulRevere.net What a site...theologyonline.com
Here is what Dr. Hodkinson said (as close as I could get) regarding his credentials:
"I'm a medical specialist in pathology which includes virology. I trained at Cambridge University in the UK. I'm the ex-president of the pathology section of the medical association. I was previously an assistant professor at the faculty of medicine doing a lot of teaching. I was the chairman of the [unintelligible](royal college?) of physicians of Canada examination commitee in pathology in Ottowa. But more to the point, I am currently the chairman of a biotechnology company in North Carolina selling the Covid 19 test."
Who said that? I certainly didn't. Dr. Hodkinson certainly didn't.
You should stop listening to fake news (in other words, the Snopes article is just a straw man against Dr. Hodkinson), and just listen to what the man actually said. Go on, I'll wait.
. . . . I am scientifically literate with an engineering degree from an Ivy League university. . . . .
His views have been repudiated by the medical establishment. . . . .
Fascinating.Ummm, no. It is because I am scientifically literate with an engineering degree from an Ivy League university. You?
Snopes lost me with the Nathan Phillips claim to be a Vietnam Vet nonsense. If you look at their page, they act as blatant apologists for the lying scumbag while including a video in which he clearly states "I'm a Vietnam vet"Snopes isn't that credible anymore. I was a member of their site a few years back and was gather material to discredit the Michelle/Michael nonsense, because I think that is conspiracy theory. They removed me.
So Snopes is about politics and progressivism.
