Re: Kim Bannon Interview on HIV test court case

Why would John F. Szczubelek not be my real name? Google it, if you don't believe me. At least I have the courage of my convictions and am not afraid to state my full name in this forum. Save your ad hominem attacks. They lend nothing to the credibility of your arguments. The fact that many eminent members of the scientific community, like Kary Mullis, Robert Root-Bernstein and Peter Duesberg, just to name a few, have "questioned" the HIV single agent causation hypothesis is more than enough justification to devote funding to alternate hypotheses. Their work is very readable. If you approach it with an open mind, you will be inclined to think less of the HIV hypothesis. The force of their arguments comes not from complex scientific analysis, but from pure logic. If the HIV hypothesis advanced in the mid 1980's were true, the epidemiological research would show a very different pattern for incidence of the diseases and symptoms associated with AIDS. Contrary to what you suggest, there is ample evidence to question, if not abandon, the HIV hypothesis. Unfortunately, government and drug companies are more interested in researching, manufacturing and selling simple magic bullet solutions than they are in exploring treatments and prevention methods that focus on multiple causes and lifestyle changes. You throw around the term "scientific paradigm," but it appears that you have not read or understood Thomas Kuhn's work on the subject. Scientific paradigms tend to outlive their usefulness due to the same kind of structural and institutional barriers that have allowed the HIV hypothesis to persist. Finally, what is the point of questioning Ms. Bannon's personal finances? That has nothing to do with the issue at hand and is a senseless personal attack on a person who doesn't deserve it.
