News about the lab leak leaking out – and why it matters to ID

The point isn’t just that the debunkers are proven wrong in principle  (because there was good reason for concern) but that there was never any  reason to give them much credibility in the first place – except that they claimed to represent “science.” A few more blows like this – and they would be just the ones to administer them – and trust in science among the smarter segments of the public will not easily recover.

More on the Lab Leak theory vindicated… receipts pile in…

Matt Ridley: To summarise. A bat coronavirus pandemic began in the city with the biggest bat coronavirus lab in the world, a long way from where those viruses are found naturally. It was caused by the first and so-far only sarbecovirus with a furin cleavage site in it, a feature that had been inserted into other coronaviruses nearby, and that had been planned to be inserted into a sarbecovirus for the first time.

At Big Think: The weirdness of quantum mechanics forces scientists to confront philosophy

Marcelo Gleiser: Due to space, I will only mention one more epistemic interpretation, Quantum Bayesianism, or as it is now called, QBism. As the original name implies, QBism takes the role of an agent as central. It assumes that probabilities in quantum mechanics reflect the current state of the agent’s knowledge or beliefs about the world, as he or she makes bets about what will happen in the future.
