* As a Public Service for the Coronavirus Pandemic: and brought to you by the Crawford family of radio stations, RSR host Bob Enyart interviews the director of the Van Andel Research Center in Chino Valley, Arizona, molecular biologist Dr. Kevin Anderson. We discuss the origin of this SARS-CoV-2 virus with the evidence against it being created in a lab as a biological weapon and why COVID-19 is far more deadly than the common cold. Bob co-hosts with Fred Williams the Denver-based long-running Real Science Radio broadcast with its home on Crawford's AM 670 KLT, a new affiliate Portland's KKPZ in Oregon, another in much of northern California via San Francisco's KCBC 770 AM and our podcast home at rsr.org. (Conspiracy hobbyists, please see the "Stunning Reports" just below.)
* RSR's COVID Science Interviews: Bruce Patterson (Rantes & leronlimab), Anderson (above & 3 antibodies), Michael Behe, & James Tour.
* RSR's Public Policy and Update Shows: Stunning Report 1; SR 2; SR 3; SR 4; and 25 Ways the Shutdown Kills.
* RSR's Promising Breakthroughs: Nat Comm 5/4 blocking antibody; HCQ and 4/27/20 per AAPS; 10/25/19 Science 3 antibodies.
* RSR's HCQ Updates: See rsr.org/hcq for the full list. Most recently, the Int'l Society of Infectious Diseases reports HCQ cut the death rate by half in a Henry Ford Health System study of 2,541 hospitalized patients.
* COVID Vaccines: Our friends over at cogforlife.org list the COVID vaccines under development being produced morally including those from Merck, Sanofi, and from NOVAX, which on July 7th received a $1.6 billion dollar U.S. vaccine contract. Those producing vaccines immorally include Moderna and Johnson & Johnson which use fetal tissue. We strongly urge everyone to boycott vaccines developed using tissue harvested from unborn children. (Remember, many institutions and celebrities who have been "pro-choice" all along are now also calling to legalize infanticide, what they call after-birth abortion.) Related: Recently, pharmaceutical giant Sanofi Pasteur discontinued using fetal tissue for its polio vaccine! While many parents have other vaccine concerns this development is an important step toward moral and socially sustainable medicine. (In October 2020, Lord-willing, you can hear our planned vaccine interview with microbiologist Dr. Clem Persaud.)
* RSR's 25 Christian COVID Conspiracies: Bob presents a list of conspiracies vs. actual pandemic insights.
* When Deaths Peaked: From mid-April to the first week in May when fatalities averaged over 1,800 deaths daily, for that duration COVID-19 was the #1 cause of death in America.
* "Cases Spiking" Fake News through June & July: (July Update) All of the breathless national media reporting on "spikes" in cases through June and July are nothing but fake news when delivered without context. The mainstream media, and even Fox News and many on their network including Neil Cavuto, report "spikes" without putting that data within the needed context of increased testing and especially, the long-term steady reduction in deaths. Later though deaths did rise again...
If only New York and New Jersey were not so cavalier and reckless in their pandemic response and had the much lower death rates of Florida and Texas, America would have had 30,000 fewer COVID deaths.
* How Alleged Journalists Kill People: Alleged journalists who recklessly use the term "cases" conflate antibody tests, viral tests, and those who are sick with the actual disease, as if there were no difference between the virus, SARS-CoV-2, and the COVID-19 disease that it may or may not cause. Such irresponsible reporting in and of itself can kill people because ideas have consequences and there are, remember, 25 Ways the Shutdown Kills People...
* Fake News on "Spike" in "Cases": (June Update) Bob reports on the media's COVID Fake News which includes every headline of an "Increase" or "Spike" in coronavirus "cases" that does not put the results within the context of increased testing. Fake, for example, would be counting someone who tests positive for HIV but does not have AIDS symptoms as another "AIDS" case. There's an enormous difference between having the virus and having the disease. To report what's actually happening while minimizing confusion the media should focus on death, which, of all the various coronavirus statistics provides the greatest big-picture insight. See the six weeks worth of steadily declining U.S. Covid Deaths in the chart (right) and consider this accurate headline from yesterday: COVID-19 cases rise as hospitalizations remain low in Colorado. And see kgov.com/covid.
Today's Resource: Nicer Than God
* Testing Our Concerns: Thomas Sowell and others have observed, "Blaming an economic crisis on greed is like blaming a plane crash on gravity." Dear listener, if you come across a program in February or March when Bob said, "The cure may be worse than the disease", we would like to identify those instances so if you would, please email Bob@kgov.com the date and timestamp of the statement. Meanwhile of course, here at BEL we've aired our 25 Ways the Shutdown Kills People, which list implies that more people may die from COVID mitigation itself than may have died if we had done nothing at all to impede the spread of the coronavirus. Regardless of this though and in line with Sowell's point, just because a government can exploit their own action to further injustice does not prove that action itself was unjust. (I've noticed many people struggle to understand the previous sentence. If you do, awesome! If you don't, and you don't want to make false judgments, you might want to re-read and ponder it.) Further, of course, it is wrong to believe every rumored accusation including those against immoral politicians, whether against Donald Trump, New York's Governor Cuomo, or whomever. God's enduring command, Do not bear false witness against your neighbor, still applies. Fake news promoted by Christians has included Liberty Councel's Mat Staver egregiously claiming that Kansas City, Missouri was requiring churches to submit their membership roles, and others delusionally claiming that Bill Gates (who advocates killing unborn children, wickedly opposes biblical principles, and rejects the person of Jesus Christ) is creating a vaccine designed to kill people.

Subject: Dear DBC, we're not re-opening Sunday. I had a long talk with a government staffer, and here's what we're fighting...
To: Pastor Bob <Bob@kgov.com>
Denver Bible Church, we're not re-opening this Sunday, for Mother's Day, as we had hoped to. :( Moms, please know that we love you and can't wait to see you all again soon! DBC is the little church that could and we continue to fight the great spiritual battles of our day. But even though America and the world has now crossed over to where it appears that the quarantine may kill more people than COVID-19, under my pastorage we're not going to fight for the right to be the congregational Typhoid Mary of the coronavirus. We do passionately share the Gospel of Jesus Christ and defend the Scriptures. And we continue to fight fiercely against:
- the killing of the unborn
- the diminishing of marriage
- the lie of atheism that robs hope
- the church's embrace of sexual perversion
- the catastrophe which is government school
- the attributing of all wickedness to the decrees of God
- and the Christian acceptance of socialism if from our own politicians.
... [DBC email posted here for our wider circle of friends]
