I am gong to reverse my position on one thing

In one of these virus threads, I argued, essentially, what difference does it make to know the origin (so long as it was not weaponized)? My point was that the bad outcome in the US had to do with the US handling, not the origin. That’s still true and I still disagree with the theory that the vaccine could’ve been developed even quicker, but I think Spartan was on to something with the “gain of function” questions. (@Spartan, this is why I am trying to find the articles you posted).

I wasn’t aware of the controversy surrounding “gain of function” experiments until recently. We definitely want to get to the bottom of the origin issue
