Dark days lay ahead for all of us, and it will take real wisdom to navigate through them. So, we should apply ourselves to gaining as much wisdom as we can. And, we have an opportunity to do that with the Wuhan Coronavirus, specifically a hoax associated with it.
That hoax claims that the Wuhan Coronavirus is a bioweapon, and it has captured the imagination of people who should have known better. People like Steve Quayle and websites like ZeroHedge and Epoch Times and others have continued to add fuel to this foolish theory, and it’s time to dispel this foolishness with wisdom.
And, we’ll do that with the help of Occam’s Razor.

Learning Wisdom: Why the Wuhan Coronavirus is NOT a Bioweapon
YouTube shortlink: https://youtu.be/E5t__ig_2hs
NOTE: Can you believe that YouTube took that video down? Absolutely amazing. And, not only did they take it down, but they refused to explain why. Of course, the company is run by dirtbags and morons, so this is not a surprise.
Thanks to everyone who let me know that this was taken down.
Smooth move, YouTube. Too much more of this, and I switch to BitChute
For the vast majority of my articles, my goal is to help you learn how to discover the truth for yourself and then to decide what to do with what you have discovered. We call that wisdom. And, few of us will survive the dark days ahead without it.
So, let’s take the example of the Wuhan Coronavirus, and see how we can discover the truth about whether this was or was not a biological weapon. And, I think that we should start with an idea called Occam’s Razor.
William of Ockham reportedly said:
Pluralitas non est ponenda sine neccesitate.
That’s Latin for:
Entities should not be multiplied unnecessarily.
That’s still a bit obscure, so let me try and make it more understandable:
Simpler explanations are more likely to be true.
William wasn’t saying that we should always accept the simplest explanation for why something happens. He was merely making an important observation about probability. And, it’s an observation that you probably make every day.
Take your own home as an example. If you come home from work to see that all the stuffing in your furniture has been strewn about the floor…
Do you theorize that space aliens have attacked your couch?
– or –
Do you look more closely at your rather guilty-looking dogs who also happen to be covered in furniture foam?
Of course, you know the answer to that one. And, that’s an application of Occam’s Razor. To assume that space aliens had attacked you would require far too many elements to work just right, so it’s just not probable. Your dogs, on the other hand, are a far more direct and reasonable explanation. (Although, your dogs might advocate the space alien theory a little more strongly than you do.)
A Story About How You Need The Right Information For Occam’s Razor To Work
Having said that, Occam’s Razor doesn’t work when you don’t have all the right information.
In 2009, my wife and I were living in a suburb called Fishers, northeast of Indianapolis. It was an apartment complex full of people who weren’t the shiniest examples of intelligence. And one day, we came home to find out that our computers had been stolen. The front door had been locked from the outside, and there were no signs of forced entry.
My immediate reaction?
The cleaning crew for the apartment complex did it!
Someone had to have had a key to our apartment to get in and then lock the door when they left. And, when I went to the management office for the apartment complex, they thought that I was nuts when I said that someone had broken into our apartment, using a key. They showed me their key safe and explained about how carefully they manage access to those keys. But, I wasn’t convinced. I just ‘knew’ that someone on their staff had to have been responsible.
Of course, I wasn’t helping to make my case, since I was casting aspersions upon their cleaning crew while I waved my arms in bug-eyed, sputtering outrage. That apartment complex clearly had some insane residents, and they honestly thought that I was one of them. And, in retrospect, I can certainly see how they thought that way.
I was beside myself!
All the while, the psychopathic moron living next door was laughing up his sleeve. He had committed the ‘perfect crime’, and he enjoyed watching me squawk in outrage.
Then, a couple days later, while sitting in my living room, I heard a ‘thump’ somewhere above us. Since there was only attic space above, there should never have been any ‘thump’ to hear. Ever. And that ‘thump’ clued me in on a vital piece of information that I had been ignoring. And, that thump meant that someone had just been in that attic. So, I went looking for the attic entryway and found it.
Yup. There were signs that it had been opened and used. And, when I poked my head up into the attic, it was clear that the psychopathic moron next door had burrowed through the attic wall to get to our apartment. The moron who did it was caught and most of our equipment was returned, although in less-than-perfect condition.
When all the dust settled, everyone was a little embarrassed that we had all jumped to the wrong conclusions. The apartment managers realized that I was not just the latest crazy to knock on their door. The police realized that they should have treated the case more seriously. And, I learned that jumping to conclusions was a bad idea that tends to make people think that you are nuts. I might be crazy, but not for THAT reason.
It was proof that Occam’s Razor only works if you have all the information.
Applying Occam’s Razor To The Wuhan Coronavirus
How does this apply to this theory that the Wuhan Coronavirus is a bioweapon?
Let’s start with bioweapons research in general. The goal of a biological weapon is to cause massive, widespread damage to a target without causing damage to yourself. A good biological weapon spreads quickly, kills a high percentage of those infected and then dies out. Plague, Anthrax, Ebola, Smallpox and similar microbes are usually the number one choices for those wanting to make a bioweapon. Depending upon which disease you choose, between 50% and 100% of those infected would die of the disease, without treatment.
The problem is blowback. It is almost certain that any biological weapon that you have created will also spread to your own country. That’s why a vaccine must be created at the same time that you create your bioweapon. Without a vaccine, the weapon is useless, unless you are ruled by some kind of ‘doomsday cult’ like the Twelver Shiite nutjobs in control of Iran. But, that’s a story for another time.
Say what you want about the Chinese Communist Party, but they are not insane. Evil, stupid and careless, yes. But, not crazy. They would not have achieved their current level of development, if they were insane. And, if they aren’t insane, then the Wuhan Coronavirus cannot be a bioweapon – at least, not a Chinese bioweapon.
Notice who is suffering the most from this virus:
Older folks are the people who are most affected by this virus, and they also happen to be the strongest supporters of the Chinese Communist Party. There is no way that the Chinese would release a weapon that would ‘take out’ their core support – the elderly and the weak – while leaving behind a young, angry populace willing and ready to drag them down. The young are always the most ready to engage in revolution when they get mad.
The Most Probable Cause And The Most Likely Culprits
How would Occam’s Razor help us to determine the most probable cause for this disease?
Well, let’s start with one fact that should be pretty clear:
Bats in Yunnan Province did not fly a thousand miles to Wuhan and infect people.
Also, people who liked to eat bats, didn’t travel a thousand miles to Yunnan, catch them and bring them back to Wuhan.
The Wuhan Coronavirus had its original origins in bat caves in the Yunnan Province of China. The Chinese discovered more than 300 different strains of Coronavirus in the bats there, and the Wuhan Coronavirus had its origin, in some way, from one of those strains.
If you need verification, try finding information about bats living around Wuhan, in the Hubei Province of China. Good luck with that. The whole story about the Huanan Seafood Market was a smokescreen. So, let’s look at the person who WAS traveling a thousand miles to capture bats in Yunnan Province, to bring back to Wuhan:
And no, she wasn’t eating them.
Gain-of-Function Research NOT Bioweapons Research
In 2014, Dr. Shi had been involved with Gain of Function (GOF) research with Dr. Ralph S. Baric of the University of North Carolina. And, they made some great discoveries in how MERS (Middle East Respiratory Syndrome) became so deadly.
Unfortunately, GOF research is highly, highly dangerous because its goal is to increase the lethality of a virus/bacteria/fungus to try and understand how it CAN become lethal. And, they were doing this to try and anticipate the next pandemic. Not cause one.
And yes, GOF has some similarities to bioweapons research, but the differences are HUGE. It’s like comparing a mouse to a hundred pound capybara. They’re both rodents, but the similarity ends there.
Unfortunately, GOF research is dangerous – so dangerous that the Obama administration blocked US funding of it, completely, in 2014. Big kudos go to President Obama for doing that. Unfortunately, the Trump administration was not so smart. They deserve criticism for allowing US funding of GOF research to resume.
A very bad move, Mr. President!
Anyway, back to Obama’s cancelling of government funding. That was just before the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) had completed the construction of their BSL-4 (Biosafety Level 4) laboratory in 2015. So, Dr. Shi would have needed to shift her research closer to home, in Wuhan, if she was going to continue with her Gain-of-Function experiments.
The Chinese Military Did Not Control The Lab
Again, notice the focus:
Dr. Shi was purely involved in medical and scientific research.
Would the Chinese government trust someone like Dr. Shi to work on creating a bioweapon?
Without direct military control?
When it comes to weapons research, the China’s Peoples Liberation Army (PLA) wants complete control. No one does weapons research in China, unless it is run and directed by military officers.
Was Dr. Shi’s research run and directed by military officers?
Well, let’s look at her bosses, the directors of the Wuhan Institute of Virology:
Director General Yanyi WANG
Deputy Director General Gengfu XIAO
Deputy Secretary of the Party Committee Changcai HE
Deputy Director General Peng Gong
Deputy Director General Wuxiang Guan
Their bios can be found here:
WIV > About Us > Directors
Do any of those guys look like military people?
They look like scientists.
(Although that third guy looks like a CCP stooge.)
The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is one of the most paranoid organizations on the planet. And, there is absolutely no way that they would allow bioweapons research to happen without direct PLA control. It just isn’t going to happen. Period.
However, some might still believe that they were SECRETLY involved with the military. I understand why some would think that, but there’s a way that we could determine that they were not. Just look at who China sent in to take over the BSL-4 lab at the Wuhan Institute of Virology:
Major General Chen Wei of China’s Peoples Liberation Army
Why would China send in a Major General to take over the lab, if it was already run by the military?
Well, that would only happen if it was NOT run by the military.
Where You Put A Bioweapons Research Lab
But, there are some diehards out there who won’t listen to such logic. So, let’s dig a bit deeper.
Where do you set up a bioweapon lab?
If you were the Soviet Union, you would build them in the middle of nowhere, in Siberia – as far from ANY OTHER HUMAN BEING as possible. If you were the US, you would put them on an island (Plum Island) or in the middle of a military base (Fort Detrick). Although, the US shut down the Fort Detrick lab because it wasn’t safe.
Where does China put their bioweapons labs?
One thing that the Chinese would not want to do is put a bio-warfare lab in the heart of a major city that is also the transportation hub for all of China. Nor would they allow civilians near a biological weapons laboratory. The CCP might be incompetent, careless and evil, but they aren’t stupid. They would have known that accidental releases will always happen, and an accidental release in Wuhan would be a disaster that would spread throughout China.
Furthermore, the Chinese Communist Party would never allow science officials from the US Embassy to tour a biological weapons laboratory. You just don’t let the enemy look at your top-secret weapons research. You just don’t.
And yes, science officials from the US Embassy in Beijing did tour the BSL-4 lab at the Wuhan Institute of Virology. They did it twice and were horrified by how badly managed it was. You can read more about THAT, here:
State Department cables warned of safety issues at Wuhan lab studying bat coronaviruses
A Closer Look A What A ‘Good’ Bioweapon Looks Like
Still not convinced?
You’re a pretty tough audience.
So, let’s look at the bioweapons that we already know about and see how they compare to the Wuhan Coronavirus. If the characteristics of this virus don’t match the distinctive attributes of a biological weapon… well …it probably isn’t a biological weapon.
Here are the most ‘popular’ bioweapons in the world:
Bacillus Anthracis (Anthrax)
Variola major (Smallpox)
Francisella tularensis (Tularemia)
Yersinia pestis (plague)
I got the above list from here:
The world’s most dangerous bioweapons
Now THOSE are real bioweapons. And, let’s not forget that there are other bioweapons that attack agriculture such as livestock and also crops like wheat, corn and rice.
Here are a couple of discussions on bioweapons that will give you some basic knowledge:
When you go through all that and then look at the Wuhan Coronavirus, you can only come to one, clear conclusion:
The Wuhan Coronavirus is NOT a biological weapon.
Here are the core reasons why the Coronavirus cannot be a bioweapon:
It mainly affects those too old or too unhealthy for military service.
It leaves enemy soldiers with the ability to continue fighting.
Most people who get infected, never get any symptoms.
The mortality rate is very low, too low to ever be a weapon.
AND, the Chinese military – the Peoples Liberation Army – did not take control of the research until AFTER the outbreak happened.
AND, No Chinese bioweapons lab would allow US embassy officials to inspect the lab.
This leaves us with the most direct explanation for the Wuhan Coronavirus Pandemic:
It was the result of a laboratory accident at a facility doing civilian research.
It explains all the facts. It doesn’t require a complicated set of unknown conspiracies to occur. It was just. Simply. An accident. So, to those out there who keep claiming that the Wuhan Coronavirus is a biological weapon…
If you want to delve deeper into how and when this lab accident happened, go read the previous article/video that I did on this subject:
How We Got Here, Part 1: The Tragic Tale of Huang YanLing and COVID-19
Those who keep saying that this is a bioweapon, are only proving to everyone around them that they are less-than-intelligent.
So, let’s be wise and shave more often with Occam’s Razor.
I truly hope that you’ll be ready for this
A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself: but the simple pass on, and are punished. – Proverbs 22:3
