In this episode I talk about conspiracy theories, theorists and the COVID-19 virus outbreak. Specifically my co-host for Misery Likes Company sharing on his discord server a video by some youtuber named Dana Ashlie, who from what I can tell traffics in easily disprovable garbage and profits nicely from it, that makes the ridiculous claim that the COVID-19 virus is not a virus at all and is actually caused by the 5G wireless frequencies:
“This specific frequency is absorbed by oxygen. 60GHz causes the rotation of the electrons around the oxygen molecule to spin, thus inhibiting the ability of hemoglobin to properly uptake these oxygen molecules.”
I explain how I readily disprove this notion without using a lick of physics or biology, merely some basic data scraping and statistics. I also talk a bit about how conspiracies are real but most “theorists” just go too far or stop using any techniques grounded in science and reality (largely due to ego stroke and general ignorance) and give several examples of real world, provable, conspiracies that affected/affect us all but aren’t as attractive to “theorists” because they aren’t magic and space lizards but simple backroom dealings instead.
