That is false or there wouldn't be at least 3 Nobel laureates in the
Reapprasing AIDS camp if it were.
 Duesberg stands alone and has been proven wrong many times.
No, Duesberg has sat still calmly, rationally refuting the dogma and
the molecular biological think tanks have been busting their asses to
figure out what to do and say next after such events take place:
1)KS is dropped as an AIDS indicator disease
2)AZT monotherapy fails
3)Cocktail therapy promotion shows more and more severe cracks
4)Leading AIDS scientists like Big Bob Gallo are found suspect by
their own peers
5)More and more scientists and lay people question the dogma

And well they should be!  But THIS is not ranting.  You haven't even
begun to see ranting. Why, when I get to ranting the first thing I do
is depress the all-caps key and don't release it.

 You show no evidence of having the training to

I remember tellin one of you when this was mentioned to me before that
it kind of sounded like "solid stools", and, for the same reason.
 just because they come from the 'establishment'.

That he is correct and has absolutely nothing to gain financially by
his position.
 Or does his

That might appeal to him, but not to me.
appeal to you rather than his scientific arguments

So, you do admit that his arguments are scientific! jb
