Professor Jay Bhattacharya and Professor John Ioannidis: In Conversation



I agree with 50% with what these two conclude.



Here's what I disagree with:


  • They completely side step Ivermectin.

  • They say the vaccines are brilliant.

  • They admit they work with the FDA and are both friendly with Fauci. This clearly influences their 'opinions.'

Bearing these things in mind, they completely ignore the real world data which directly opposes these viewpoints. All the science papers are linked in my Covid-19 section.


If you think I am arrogant or ridiculous for disagreeing with these two, then please, write to these two and say "some silly conspiracy theorist in Surrey says you're wrong and are intentionally avoiding the real data, why don't you get in touch with him and invite him on to the next conversation." I'd love it.


Obviously, this will not happen, but I wonder why they do not invite Peter McCullough or Peter Doshi from the BMJ? If they're so insistent on data, these two would be prime scientists to talk to as well.
