  1. The idea that science can solve everything eventually was, in my teenage years, the reason for me to take Physics at Uni (a few of us on here it seems), but I feel I grew out of that worldview. Someone pointed out Godel's incompleteness theorem, I'm not a mathematician, but it seems to me that is proof of the limits of the physical nature or reality. As Heisenberg said “The first gulp from the glass of natural sciences will turn you into an atheist, but at the bottom of the glass God is waiting for you.” [“Der erste Trunk aus dem Becher der Naturwissenschaft macht atheistisch, aber auf dem Grund des Bechers wartet Gott.”] (Heisenberg, as cited in Hildebrand 1988, 10).
  2. Remainers How I look to my friends wahhhhhh How I look to my parents wahhhhhh How I look to my coworkers wahhhhhh How I look to myself wahhhhhh
  3. Yeah I think we have a few of these gimps operating here. To all glowies... ****** off
  4. I don't mind the truly afraid for the most part, it's the sneering oleaginous creeps, any excuse to bully people, I detest...
  5. It's been over 5 years now. Cry more The fact of the matter is that Brexit has improved wages for the lowest paid, isn't that what leftists should be fighting for primarily above all else? The increased cost of living is a global trend and would happen Brexit or no. If we'd voted to remain you would be blaming it on the very gall of having a referendum in the first place.
  6. Is this mofo for real right now? I'm actually starting to wonder if this guy is a bot... He's been a sounding bell on this topic, since the start. Ringing out the same tune: "lock me down harder daddy" ! Messrs Zugzwang and Coppercrotch, amongst friends, are they here on behalf of the demiurge?
  7. Quote from same paper: "This study shows that previous infection with SARS-CoV-2 induces effective immunity to future infections in most individuals." Also AZ and PZ are only about 90% right, not 100% less. Also your point about declining antibodies after months and months... that's to be expected, the body no longer needs to produce them, especially not en-masse.
  8. The vaccines cause generation of the spike protein, to make your immune generate immunity against that. Not the virus. That's why once you've recovered you don't get it again. But with the vaccines you can get it even weeks after your second vaccine, as has happened many times.
  9. Had an offer accepted over a month ago. Vendor has pulled out, citing inability to find an appropriate place to move to and also issues with his current job affecting his ability to get a new mortgage. I wonder how common this sort of situation is. I think I'm going to look for houses with no chain going forward.
  10. I agree, I think he has severe self-esteem issues which lead to a desire to attack other people. It's really tedious to see his posts pop up as they are so negative and get in the way of the otherwise decent discussion on this forum.
  11. On lockdowns being an effective tool: Spain has had mandatory mask wearing inside and outside for a long time now, and some of the strictest restrictions and mandatory social distancing. Despite all this cases rose sharply through October. Will our restrictions actually achieve anything?
  12. Antibody tests are not necessarily indicative. Many, especially the young, fight off the virus with their T cells without developing antibodies.Then you've got cross immunity with other coronavirus antigens, so different antibodies. Diamond princess showed that only 17 percent of people are susceptible. Face facts, our response to this has been ludicrous and flies in the face of classic immunology
