The mechanisms of action of Ivermectin against SARS-CoV-2: An evidence-based clinical review article | The Journal of Antibiotics

Considering the urgency of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, detection of various new mutant strains and future potential re-emergence of novel coronaviruses, repurposing of approved drugs such as Ivermectin could be worthy of attention. This evidence-based review article aims to discuss the mechanism of action of ivermectin against SARS-CoV-2 and summarizing the available literature over the years. A schematic of the key cellular and biomolecular interactions between Ivermectin, host cell, and SARS-CoV-2 in COVID-19 pathogenesis and prevention of complications have been proposed.

Georgia Guidestones — The 10 commandments of Satan (Part I)

The monument called Georgia Guidestones (GG) was erected in 1980. The “ten principles” on it are blood-chilling. On the monument we read

Let these be guidestones to an Age of Reason

A clear reference to an anti-christian age, as that’s what “age of reason” has meant since the days of the Enlightenment. Needless to say, they are deluded, since you can’t have true reason outside of the biblical worldview.

Let us look at the first of the ten “guidances”.

#1: maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature

This objective is aberrant per se. But I would like to unpack how much antithetic it is when compared to biblical mandates.

God blessed them; and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it; and rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”

Genesis 1:28

✝️ God commands man to multiply and fill the earth
👿 GG’s objective is to make sure there’s never more than 500 million people on earth.

✝️ God commands man to subdue creation and rule over it
👿 GG’s objective is to maintain balance between humanity and nature

The latter contrast is very trendy these days. Many Christians have fallen for the green propaganda, and in turn absorbed a pantheistic way of thinking according to which man is supposedly on par with the rest of nature. The Bible says we are not. We are to rule over creation, and subdue it. It is our dominion. God does not mean that in a bad way. Note that the command was given before the Fall of Man, so mankind was supposed to rule over the earth as a good king. But still rule over it.

The first guidance of these guidestones is clearly and expressly anti-biblical.

For now, I’ll stop here — I’ll break down the other 9 points in a post each.

The Lancet — COVID-19 vaccine efficacy and effectiveness—the elephant (not) in the room

Vaccine efficacy is generally reported as a relative risk reduction (RRR). It uses the relative risk (RR)—ie, the ratio of attack rates with and without a vaccine—which is expressed as 1–RR. Ranking by reported efficacy gives relative risk reductions of 95% for the Pfizer–BioNTech, 94% for the Moderna–NIH, 90% for the Gamaleya, 67% for the J&J, and 67% for the AstraZeneca–Oxford vaccines. However, RRR should be seen against the background risk of being infected and becoming ill with COVID-19, which varies between populations and over time. Although the RRR considers only participants who could benefit from the vaccine, the absolute risk reduction (ARR), which is the difference between attack rates with and without a vaccine, considers the whole population. ARRs tend to be ignored because they give a much less impressive effect size than RRRs: 1.3% for the AstraZeneca–Oxford, 1.2% for the Moderna–NIH, 1.2% for the J&J, 0.93% for the Gamaleya, and 0.84% for the Pfizer–BioNTech vaccines.
