There's often a herd mentality among both journalists and scientists. The first theory to gain traction (in this case, coronavirus came from the wet market) becomes the "consensus" and theories that are equally good or better get dismissed as conspiracies.

We should leave open the possibility that this whole discussion is based on some fundamentally wrong assumption. E.g., it could turn out the virus didn't even come from Wuhan. But *currently available evidence* seems to favor the lab-leak theory over the wet-market theory.

Where are you from? Gentiles w/ the same beliefs are all over the US and the UK (where I grew up/reside).

Yes, but the following is suspicious:
- criticizing Israel for X when it doesn’t do X
- criticizing Israel for X but never the other countries that do X
- saying Israel should be subject to unique punishments for X when other countries do things that are obviously worse than X

I don’t claim to be a victim when I (a grad student) am attacked by people like Stanley (tenured prof at Yale). I dish it out, and I can take it. But amazing that Stanley cries foul when “powerful faculty member” @NAChristakis lightly criticizes him. https://t.co/X90ccgaK1J
