我们当中那些对流行的病毒或疫苗正统观点提出另一种观点的人,正在遭到诋毁、威胁和取消。这不是科学,也不是一个正常运转的民主国家的运作方式。

我是一名医生,但是COVID’s打破了我对医学研究的信念——我不能相信我读到的任何东西,也不能接受任何主流事实Those of us who put forward an alternative view to the prevailing orthodoxy on the virus or on vaccinations are being vilified,threatened and cancelled.This is not how science,or a functioning democracy,works.

我们当中那些对流行的病毒或疫苗正统观点提出另一种观点的人,正在遭到诋毁、威胁和取消。这不是科学,也不是一个正常运转的民主国家的运作方式。

I haven't written for a while,sorry.Instead,I have been sorting out two complaints about my writing made to the General Medical Council(GMC).Also,a complaint from NHS England,and two irate phone calls from other doctors,informing me I shouldn't make any negative comments about vaccines.

对不起,我有一阵子没写信了。相反,我一直在整理两个投诉,关于我的写作向综合医学委员会(GMC)。另外,英格兰国家医疗服务系统的投诉,以及其他医生的两个愤怒的电话,告诉我不应该对疫苗做出任何负面评论。

For those in other countries,or who don't know about such things,doctors in the UK are ruled by many different organisations,all of whom feel able to make judgement and hand down various sanctions.The deadliest of them,the Spanish Inquisition if you like,is the GMC,who can strike you off the medical register and stop you working as a doctor.They have great power,with no oversight.

对于那些在其他国家或者不知道这些事情的人来说,英国的医生受到许多不同组织的管理,他们都觉得自己有能力做出判断并下达各种制裁。其中最致命的,如果你愿意的话可以称之为西班牙宗教裁判所医学委员会,它可以把你从医学注册中除名,让你停止医生的工作。他们有很大的权力,没有监督。

Prior to this,I had been phoned by,and attacked by,two journalists and a couple of fact-checking organisations that have sprung up which can decide your guilt or innocence with regard to any information about Covid-19.Of course,no one can check the fact-checkers.They are the self-appointed guardians of'truth'.Quis custodiet ipsos custodes–indeed.Who does guard the guardians?

在此之前,我曾接到过2名记者和一些事实核查组织的电话,并遭到他们的攻击。这些组织已经涌现出来,它们可以就任何有关2019冠状病毒疾病的信息判断你是有罪还是无罪。当然,没有人可以核实事实。他们自封为"真理"的守护者。保管人是益普索的保管人——确实如此。谁来保护守卫者?

In truth they have not scared me off,just greatly annoyed me.The problem is that if they really decide to hunt you down,then you are wiped from the system.Dr.Joseph Mercola,the American alternative medicine proponent,is,for example,having to remove information from his site in great haste.Once wiped from the internet,it becomes very difficult for anyone to read anything you write or listen to anything you say.It is a major problem if this is how one makes a living.

事实上,他们并没有吓跑我,只是大大地惹恼了我。问题是,如果他们真的决定追捕你,那么你就会从这个系统中消失。例如,美国替代医学倡导者约瑟夫·默科拉博士就不得不匆忙地从他的网站上删除信息。一旦从互联网上删除,任何人都很难阅读你写的任何东西或听你说的任何东西。如果这就是一个人谋生的方式,那么这就是一个大问题。

I was removed from Wikipedia a couple of years ago,but I do have a couple of insulting pages on Rational W to take their place.Edited and controlled by–who knows?

几年前我从维基百科上删除了,但是我确实有一些关于 Rational w 的侮辱性的页面来取代它们的位置。编辑和控制-谁知道呢?

I think it is the extreme wing of the vegan party who decided to wipe me from Wikipedia and write the Rational W slights.I say this because a large number of other people I know who are critical of the diet-heart hypothesis,those who dared to suggest that eating animal products is perfectly healthy,were also obliterated from Wikipedia at pretty much the same time.

我认为是素食派对的极端分子决定把我从维基百科上抹去,写下 Rational w 的轻蔑。我之所以这么说,是因为我认识的许多其他人,他们对饮食——心脏假说持批评态度,他们敢于说吃动物制品是完全健康的,他们几乎同时也从维基百科上消失了。

I did rather like the idea of Wikipedia when it started,but it has been taken over by people,some may say zealots,with their own agendas.This is particularly true of a few scientific areas I am particularly interested in.Diet,heart disease and Covid-19.

当维基百科刚开始的时候,我确实很喜欢它的想法,但是它已经被人们接管了,有些人可能会说是狂热者,有他们自己的议程。对于我特别感兴趣的一些科学领域,情况尤其如此。饮食、心脏病和2019冠状病毒疾病。

Frustratingly,there is nothing you can do if Wikipedia decides to wipe you out.There is no appeal.Those who have gained the power to edit Wikipedia are answerable to no one.They rule their little empires with absolute power.They are,of course,exactly the sort of people who should have absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with science.Their minds were made up years ago.They have agendas,they are the anti-science,anti-scientist brigade.

令人沮丧的是,如果维基百科决定把你扫地出门,你也无能为力。没有上诉的余地。那些已经获得编辑权力的人不需要对任何人负责。他们以绝对的权力统治着他们的小帝国。当然,他们正是那种完全不应该与科学有任何关系的人。他们几年前就下定决心了。他们有自己的计划,他们是反科学,反科学的队伍。

The main purpose of science is to question and attack.To subject ideas to the greatest scrutiny.Those who decide to shut down and stifle debate–whatever they may believe themselves to be doing–are,in fact,traitors to the cause of science.Stranglers of the enlightenment,assassins of progress.

科学的主要目的是质疑和攻击。把想法置于最严格的审查之下。那些决定关闭和扼杀辩论的人——不管他们自认为在做什么——实际上是科学事业的叛徒。启蒙运动的扼杀者,进步的刺客。

They are not alone,and things have gotten far worse in the past year or so.Science has taken a terrible battering during Covid-19,though I have always known that dissent against a widely held scientific hypothesis is difficult.

他们并不孤单,在过去一年左右的时间里情况变得更加糟糕。科学在212019冠状病毒疾病遭受了可怕的打击,尽管我一直知道,对一个被广泛接受的科学假说提出异议是困难的。

Just trying to get published is a nightmare.The peer-review system is one of the many weapons used against innovative thinking.'Let's see what the current experts think of this new idea which threatens to overturn everything they have researched and taught over the last 30 years,and have built their reputations on…I wonder if they will like it and approve it?'

只是想出版就是一场噩梦。同行评议制度是反对创新思维的众多武器之一。让我们看看现在的专家们对这个新想法的看法,这个想法有可能推翻他们在过去30年里所研究和教授的一切,并建立起他们的声誉......我不知道他们是否会喜欢这个想法并批准它?'

Experts certainly create a formidable barrier to change.As described by David Sackett,a founding father of evidence-based medicine,in his article,'The sins of expertness and a proposal for redemption':

专家无疑为改变创造了一个难以逾越的障碍。正如循证医学之父 David Sackett 在他的文章《专家的罪恶和救赎的建议》中所描述的:

"…It then dawned on me that experts like me commit two sins that retard the advance of science and harm the young.Firstly,adding our prestige to our opinions gives the latter far greater persuasive power than they deserve on scientific grounds alone.Whether through deference,fear,or respect,others tend not to challenge them,and progress towards the truth is impaired in the presence of an expert.

"......我突然意识到,像我这样的专家犯下了两项罪行,一是阻碍了科学的进步,二是伤害了年轻人。首先,把我们的声望加入到我们的观点中,后者的说服力远远超过了它们仅仅在科学上应得的能力。无论是出于顺从、恐惧还是尊重,别人都不愿挑战他们,而且在专家面前,通往真理的道路也会受到阻碍。

"The second sin of expertness is committed on grant applications and manuscripts that challenge the current expert consensus.Reviewers face the unavoidable temptation to accept or reject new evidence and ideas,not on the basis of their scientific merit,but on the extent to which they agree or disagree with the public positions taken by experts on these matters."

"专家的第二个罪过是对挑战目前专家共识的拨款申请和稿件提出申请。审查人员面临着接受或拒绝新证据和观点的不可避免的诱惑,这不是基于它们的科学价值,而是基于它们在多大程度上同意或不同意专家在这些问题上采取的公共立场

And his remedy:

他的补救措施是:

"But there are still far more experts around than is healthy for the advancement of science.Because their voluntary retirement does not seem to be any more frequent in 2000 than it was in 1980,I repeat my proposal that the retirement of experts be made compulsory at the point of their academic promotion and tenure."

"但是,对于科学的进步来说,仍然存在着远远超出健康范围的专家。由于他们在2000年自愿退休的情况似乎并不比1980年更频繁,我再次提议,在专家们获得学术晋升和任期时,必须强制他们退休。"

Expertise is great.'Experts'…well,that is a completely different matter.We certainly have a few formidable ones kicking about with Covid-19.In the UK,we have the great and good of the SAGE committee made up of–who knows?–and chosen for whatever reasons.They wield enormous power,and never disagree on anything.In the US,we have Fauci and the CDC.Ditto.

专业知识是伟大的。'专家'......好吧,那是完全不同的事情。我们当然也有一些强大的2019冠状病毒疾病。在英国,我们有一个伟大而优秀的 SAGE 委员会,由——谁知道呢?-不管出于什么原因被选中。他们拥有巨大的权力,从不在任何事情上有分歧。在美国,我们有 Fauci CDC。同上。

In the background we have the World Health Organisation(WHO)…who can tell you what way the wind is blowing if nothing else.They remind me of Groucho Marx's famous comment."These are my principles.And you if you don't like them…I have others."However,we at the WHO would like to make it clear that nothing about Covid-19 has anything to do with China,in any way.Can we have more money please?

在背景中,我们有世界卫生组织(WHO)......他们可以告诉你如果没有其他事情的话,风是怎么吹的。他们让我想起格劳乔·马克思的著名评论。"这些是我的原则。如果你不喜欢他们......我还有其他人。"然而,我们世界卫生组织希望明确表示,2019冠状病毒疾病组织与中国没有任何关系,无论如何。能再给我们点钱吗?

Anyway,where are we with this virus,and with science?

不管怎样,我们对这种病毒和科学的研究进展如何?

In my opinion,Covid-19 succeeded in breaking my last vestiges of faith in medical scientific research.I cannot believe anything I read.I accept no mainstream facts or figures.

在我看来,2019冠状病毒疾病成功地打破了我对医学科学研究的最后一丝信念。我不相信我读到的任何东西。我不接受任何主流事实或数据。

We are told such utter nonsense.For example,the'fact'that vaccination protects against Covid-19 more effectively than having had the disease itself…This is just utter nonsense.

我们被告知这完全是胡说八道。例如,疫苗比疾病本身更有效地预防2019冠状病毒疾病......这完全是胡说八道。

We were told that the virus was spread by touching contaminated surfaces…Really?We were told it spread through droplets,not aerosols.Which is the most complete garbage.We were told that everyone has to wear a mask.We were told it could easily be passed on by asymptomatic people.Based on nothing at all.I could go on.

我们被告知,病毒是通过接触受污染的表面传播的......真的吗?我们被告知它是通过飞沫传播的,而不是通过气溶胶。哪个是最彻底的垃圾。我们被告知每个人都必须戴面具。我们被告知,它很容易被无症状的人传染。毫无根据。我可以继续。

Yet,no one seems remotely bothered by any of this nonsense.The public seems to lap it up,and attack anyone who questions the current narrative.I feel that I am clinging onto a dying religion.The religion of Francis Bacon and the Enlightenment,as set out here:

然而,似乎没有人对这些胡言乱语感到丝毫不安。公众似乎欣然接受,并攻击任何质疑当前叙事的人。我觉得我依附于一个濒临死亡的宗教。弗朗西斯·培根和启蒙运动的宗教,如下:

"Baconian method,methodical observation of facts as a means of studying and interpreting natural phenomena.This essentially empirical method was formulated early in the 17th century by Francis Bacon,an English philosopher,as a scientific substitute for the prevailing systems of thought,which,to his mind,relied all too often on fanciful guessing and the mere citing of authorities to establish truths of science.

"归纳法,对事实的系统观察,作为研究和解释自然现象的手段。17世纪早期,英国哲学家弗朗西斯·培根提出了这种基本的经验主义方法,作为流行的思想体系的科学替代品。

"After first dismissing all prejudices and preconceptions,Bacon's method,as explained in Novum Organum(1620;'New Instrument'),consisted of three main steps:first,a description of facts;second,a tabulation,or classification,of those facts into three categories–instances of the presence of the characteristic under investigation,instances of its absence,or instances of its presence in varying degrees;third,the rejection of whatever appears,in the light of these tables,not to be connected with the phenomenon under investigation and the determination of what is connected with it."

"培根的方法,如《新工具》(1620)中所解释的,首先排除所有偏见和先入之见,包括三个主要步骤:第一,对事实进行描述;第二,将这些事实列表或分类,分为三类——被调查特征的存在、缺乏特征的情况或不同程度地存在特征的情况;第三,根据这些表格,排除任何出现的东西,与被调查的现象无关,并确定与之有关的东西

This way of thinking,it seems,lasted from 1620 to 2020.400 years of immense scientific progress.The age of enlightenment.We are moving back to the prevailing systems of thought…to fanciful guessing and the mere citing of authorities to establish truths of science.

这种思维方式似乎从1620年持续到2020年。400年的巨大科学进步。启蒙时代。我们正在回到流行的思想体系......回到幻想的猜测和仅仅引用权威来建立科学的真理。

The Dark Ages are returning.

黑暗时代又回来了。
