I heard otherwise from the US intelligent agency, scientists in the field wholeheartedly agreed with the report.
You know consensus, yanno science, not one jes one testimony, 1 data point.
Ahh, found it.
The particular video I saw started at 59:50 in this one...
...and the meat of what we're discussing starts at 2:49:20.
Long...but definitely worth watching from the one hour mark on.
Make of it what you will...but I see trouble.
Mate, you need to go back and watch your own video. All of those experts disagreed it was man-made. What they said was that it could have been facilitated (accelerated evolution/mutation) in the Chinese lab before accidentally escaping. They also said there was no hard evidence of this.
So, no evidence in your video, only conjecture from a panel of so-called experts in front of a Republican Hearing with an obvious agenda – hardly impartial.
However, having watched the video I would agree with its premise that it is possible
the virus was being stored and studied in Wuhan, and that it was a natural occurring virus that may have been modified by the Chinese either through direct genetic manipulation (even though there is no proof of this – and the scientists admit it) or that it was facilitated (accelerated evolution/mutation) in the same lab and then accidentally escaped. I do not believe it was deliberated released on China's own population.
And I don't really see the point of your post questioning statements that it was a naturally occurring virus when nearly everyone agrees it was. The question is, did the Chinese directly modify it or give it a "helping hand" to mutate into something more powerful?
The only reason I would entertain this idea is because of the way the Chinese rushed to cover everything up before the WHO got there. But we all know the WHO are a bunch of Chinese stooges anyway . . .
For the record, here's a quote from your video:
"When you say 'man-made' it could have been naturally evolved, which is what was suggested earlier . . . I think more likely – and again, this is speculation – but I think more likely it was evolved by passage either in human cells or by quote humanised mice to have a very virulent pathogen."
