  •  I agree; howeve I don't consider asking a (0+ / 0-)

    question about gene transfer, that the FAO abd WHO specifically addresses in a recent evaluation,  a conspiracy theory.

    So am I to understand that, in your opinion, my question has no merit?

    It's difficult to be happy knowing so many suffer. We must unite.

      Wondering about something, and then using it as a point to launch an uninformed fear-mongering screed, are not the same thing.

      Followed by cherry-picking other ill-informed sources, pretending it's a causal chain, and then sayin' Hey, I'm just askin'...

      Yeah, that's really irresponsible I'd say.

      But it's a free country and you are allowed to set your hair on fire. It's just not always wise.

        •  wow. that's actually not what she said. (3+ / 0-)

          What she's saying is you interpreted what you read wrong.

          This is like that time someone here interpreted a group of google map images as evidence of secret fracking after the 2011 Virginia Earthquake. It was a house under construction. I was amazed so many people fell for that crap without thinking.

          What she's saying (and what was posted elsewhere in the thread by Roadbed Guy) is there's probably NO connection. None. the mechanism of gene transfer is well known and it's likely not possible, and the "mother nature" that some progressives worship like a deity transfers all sorts of bullshit genes into you every damn day with everything. Good luck this cold  season! Those viruses stick all sorts of random genetic material into you! oh noes!

          Not to mention this. Which you did NOT bother responding to.

          Anyway it looks like when I guessed someone had studied it and found the answer to the question was no, I was right, since I've read through the links people have posted on the thread.

          People have conflated Monsanto with everything GMO and it's reduced their ability to think and reason. I've long considered the term "reality-based" to be snark.
