[email protected] guys https://foldingathome.org/ That's where it all started.

Here's a little excerpt from the site "Together, we have created the most powerful supercomputer on the planet and are using it to help understand SARS-CoV-2/COVID-19 and to develop new therapies. We need your help pushing toward a potent, patent-free drug.

Use your PC to help fight COVID-19."

Yeah, SETI has worked well at finding aliens too.

SETI was always stupid. What are the odds of finding aliens within radio range of us that happen to be at the exact same technological level at the exact time needed to send a signal to us decades or hundreds of years ago so that it reaches us right as we have our telescopes aimed at it? Absolutely foolish.

So, if I make a computer model that outputs "everyone will die unless they send all their money to DeadOverRed"...

v4.0 of that software (Swiss-PdbViewer aka DeepView) was released in 2008 and last updated in 2012, but like you said, it looks way older.

It probably is some X11 shit - it even says openGL in the screenshot. You don't need the latest Voodoo 2 AGP graphics to display protein folding.

Do you think it matters what the software is to perpetrate the LIE? All that matters is whether you will look into it, and most people won't

Why? Because that will be a good argument to use for people who believe that the flu was eradicated last year?

RNA viruses constantly mutate. There are so many variants that it is pointless to keep track of them. But none of them will be significantly different from the original so all this talk of variants is pointless. Viruses get more virulent and less deadly over time, period. So it is becoming less of an issue in reality.

All viruses mutate, whether they're RNA, single strand DNA or double strand DNA - some ssDNA viruses mutate faster than some few RNA viruses even. The other viruses that make up common colds/flu each year (coronaviruses account for 15% of 'cold'/'flu' infections each year) - Rhinoviruses (common cold) and influenza viruses (flu), which are both RNA viruses too, mutate even faster than coronavirus.

Coronavirus is actually slow to mutate as far as RNA viruses go since it has a special protein that acts as a genetic proofreader (identifies errors ie potential mutations in its genome which then get corrected).

There's hundreds of variants.

Maybe. I'm honestly starting to I think there is no virus. We just saw the majority of the tests recalled because they didn't even determine if you had RONA. Knowing that, there's almost no chance they know what Delta looks like, or who has it.

Just keep an eye out for the phrase "In silico" it's just science talk for PC made this shit up.

There's also never been a virus isolated. Look into virus vs exosomes. We live in a clown world where everything you've been told is a lie.

That's how this whole thing started was that shit head, Neil Ferguson's model that said 2 billion people were going to die or whatever. Meanwhile, he was out breaking covid guidelines to bang his mistress.
