Seems a similar offer has been made by Dr. Vernon Coleman - with similar result.


................... maybe a debate could be "staged" (as clearly no one has the cajones to engage with either of you). One side "pro", one "con", or some such. Just a thought.

Thanks for all you do !

Steve Kirsch hasn't got what it takes to subject his contrarian views to peer-reviewed journals and scientific conferences so, instead, he wants to present them to members of the public who, I'm sorry, wouldn't have a clue how to judge his scientifically destitute ideas.

Another debate challenge. Will you back away and say it's "not worth your time" like you did on the last one?

Thanks for posting the full list of those upstanding members of the community.

You know Steve Kirsch has invited them all for a live debate? No takers...not all that "up" in the standing part, apparently. :)

Expand full comment

Hi Terry,

If you want a detailed and fully complete explanation of why the upstanding members of our community you listed above will not debate a contrarian like Steve Kirsch, here is a link:


The article it appropriately titled:

"Debate me Bro'", with subtitles such as "Come on debate me", "Come at me bro'". and "Debate me, you pile of human garbage".

It's very good, and a comprehensive put down of this type of strategy dating way back to the evolution wars where creationists regularly performed the same trick of trying to entice evolutionary biologists into public debates so as to give the creationists an air of legitimacy that they did not deserve.

Have a read. It will enlighten you about the tactics of contrarians like Steve Kirsch. They cannot persuade other scientists through the normal channels of peer-review, such as through scientific journals and scientific conferences where scientific ideas are far more effectively evaluated, so they go public.

And, of course, compared with the scientific community, members of the general public are really in no position to evaluate the value of his ideas because they do not have the necessary scientific skills to do so.

Anyway, have a read.

I read it. It's garbage. Just one big lame excuse not to enter the debate because Malone and others would clearly win. You're brainwashed.

If Robert Malone had science on his side, he wouldn't be putting his ideas direct to the members of the public, who have no idea how to assess the value of his ideas. He would go through scientific peer-review. That's where scientific ideas are tested and evaluated.

In the domain where his ideas are appropriately judged, they have failed. That really is the end of the story as far as science is concerned. He can pretty well say whatever he likes in the public sphere as long as he is careful to be interviewed only by those who wouldn't have a clue what questions to ask. Like Joe Rogan.

As far a science is concerned, Robert Malone has already lost.

Expand full comment

He sites many peer reviewed papers and uses critical thinking to come to reasonable conclusions. Would love to see you debate him. The evidence is way against you. The truth is coming out and you're not going to stop it.
