In today's' 'Not A Cult' news, it turns out the Church of Covid has a whole new tactic to appease Wu-tan:
Dr Fauci — the US Government's top infectious diseases expert — said that it was 'common sense' that double-masking would be more effective.
He added it was 'likely' to offer better protection against the mutant strain, which studies show partially evades immunity from vaccines and past infections
Hey, I can see how a mutation might affect the ability to evade the immune system, but I'm not sure how it makes it more likely to slip through a face nappy. Does the mutation makes it smaller? More slippery? Lets it do yoga?
More to the point though, until six seconds ago, anyone who suggested a Boris Burka may not be totally awesome at filtering out viruses was a crazed knuckle-dragger who hated The Science.
Suddenly, all bets are off. It turns out that one face nappy won't do it, but two? That'll do just what they spent months saying one alone would do.
They were lying before but now? Now their plan will totally work!
Hence this guy:
And Dr Benjamin Killingley, a scientist advising the UK Government in the pandemic, also said wearing two masks was 'common sense'.
But Dr Killingley, a member of the SAGE advisory group, also admitted the claim isn't 'grounded in lots of study'.
Actually, 'common sense' said wearing a face nappy wouldn't work, and it was right. Meanwhile, Dr Ben and his pals in the Certified Scientificator Community who told us it would totally work now want to - literally - double down.
Anyway, I thought we were supposed to be the knuckle-dragging bigots pulling stuff out of our backside! If one of our guys had started explaining that he didn't need to cite studies and stuff, 'cause it was just common sense, init, the MSM would cover it like the Martians landing.
Where does this guy work anyway? The University of the Dog & Duck?
This is not a small thing. A scientist who admits his theories aren't grounded in actual studies is like a judge claiming you don't need any of that 'trial' stuff just to say some guy is totes guilty.
Then again, who needs to do actual research when everyone knows what the answer will be anyway?
The answer is moar masks. It was always going to be moar masks.
To state the (should be) obvious: if there is no possible result that can persuade you to ditch your theories, you're not actually doing science, you're doing religion just without all that God stuff.
