Dec. 25 - Dec. 31 Discussions

This week's Sunday comment on my web site is about how scientists view their theories versus how True Believers view their theories. I used the news about the Higgs boson to make the point that, if a scientist discovers that he was mistaken, he learns from his mistakes and could go on to make even greater discoveries.

If a True Believer makes a mistake, he never admits to the mistake, he rationalizes ways that he could still be right, and he continues with his beliefs. To a True Believer, anyone who admits to making mistakes is someone who admits to being incompetent.

But, the True Believers seem to have put themselves into a "Higgs boson"-type situation.

They have built a case that Bruce Ivins was innocent because he was working with test animals in Suite B3 during his "unexplained" evening and weekend hours prior to the attacks. He was not making the anthrax powders during that time.

However, the facts seem to say that when Ivins was working with test animals, he was NOT in Suite B3. Therefore, his work with test animals has nothing to do with his unexplained evening hours in Suite B3.

It appears that what is needed to prove or disprove the True Believers' theory about the test animals is solid, undeniable proof of where the test animals were located. Every document they've produced so far says that, either the animals were somewhere else, or the information on the document is so vague and irrelevant that it means nothing one way or the other.

It also seems that it should be fairly easy to determine where the test animals were located in September and October of 2001.

It may only be a matter of asking the right question.

  1. On Monday, December 26, an Anthrax Truther showed evidence which clearly indicates that the mice Ivins was using in vaccine tests in late September and early October 2001 were indeed located in Building 1425, and NOT in Building 1412, which I suggested might be possible.

    However, the evidence seems to indicate that "Veterinary Medicine Division animal caretakers" may have done all the animal checking.

    The evidence also seems to further confirm that Ivins' unexplained and unsupervised time spent in his lab during the evenings before the anthrax attacks had absolutely NOTHING to do with checking on test animals.
