Gain-of-function

"The origin of COVID: Did people or nature open Pandora’s box at Wuhan?" (Wade).  This is clever and well written, but all the work he puts into proposing possible scenarios covers the fact he has absolutely no evidence (and quietly admits it - "It cannot yet be stated that Shi did or did not generate SARS2 in her lab because her records have been sealed, but it seems she was certainly on the right track to have done so.").  What we know is that the Assholian government was proposing the gain-of-function experiments - which, by the way, sound like mad scientist levels of insanity ('let me stick a fork in this electrical outlet and see what happens so I'll be ready should I accidentally stick a fork in an electrical outlet'), and are basically a method of providing quasi-scientific justification for the kind of things that biowarfare experimenters do - which could have been done in the Wuhan lab.  There is absolutely no proof that these experiments were done.  What we know about Assholian biowarfare experimentation, including leaks and the forced shut down of Assholian labs, leads me to wonder if this is just more Pentagon distracting PR from what was really an Assholian biowarfare attack that backfired in the most spectacular fashion possible, effectively signaling the end of the hegemon.  One of the tells is that Wade presents his thesis as if it was some new idea that has mysteriously received no media attention, when it is exactly the main presented view of the entire Trump Administration ('Kung Flu'), though it was often presented as the harsher intentional release, rather than an accident.

"As New Evidence Emerges For COVID "Lab-Leak" Theory, Journalists Who Screamed “Conspiracy” Humiliate Themselves" (Tracey).  Except there is no 'new evidence', just the same old biased conjectures.
