    That's cute.
    What does any of this have to do with the fact he clearly lied about not k owing what Invermectin was? Do you acknowledge he was lying through his teeth if he said he didnít know what it was when talking with his doctor?

    Bolded: I know you hadnít heard of Invermectin before Covid, none of your ilk did until it started getting pushed as another part of the culture war.

    As for what confuses me, the only thing at the moment is whether youíre believe Invermectin is an effective treatment for Covid. Care to answer?
    I'm not a medical professional and neither are you. You're not qualified to have an 'expertise' on it.

    Oh sure, it was a general question. Right after I bring it up, you talk about horse dewormer incorrectly and then are surprised that I corrected you, lol. Any other questions you want to ask Jesus?

    Iím not claiming to have an expertise on it, but we both can have opinions on it. Mine is actually based on medical professionals, every major medical organization in the US in fact, all of which say you shouldnít use it to treat Covid.

    What I am not surprised about is that you havenít answer my question, because I think you absolutely do believe in using Invermectin to treat Covid and thatís why you wonít answer (and why you are defending Rogan so hard).

    So at this point the only other question I want to ask is: Why wonít you just answer whether you think people should be taking Invermectin to treat Covid?

    Also, way to just completely ignore that Rogan absolutely knew what Invermectin was and lied about it. You are exceptionally good at ignoring things youíve donít like.

    Doctors are by and large much more intelligent than the average person. Trump really has succeeded in convincing some people that they are smarter than experts.

    There are good doctors and bad doctors. There are intelligent doctors and doctors who were C average students. There are doctors who are experts in their field and doctors who have no business making some of the diagnoses they make because they have no qualified background to do so. There are doctors who have been sued for being negligent morons. Most doctors are of average intelligence and the only difference is their choice to go to school longer. But naive people such as yourself have a preconceived belief that having the title doctor makes one intelligent.

    I agree there are good and bad doctors, but I doubt they, on average, possess average intelligence. I donít think the only difference is how long theyíve gone to school, I think there is a baseline intelligence required to even be admitted to medical school.

    There was a time that I would have agreed with you, but our educational system is a really poor evaluator of intelligence and in reality there is no real effective measure of intelligence or aptitude to be admitted to medical school.

    People here will scoff at it because thatís what they do, but working in healthcare is a pretty eye opening experience. I have much less faith in doctors than I did before I got into it. There are nurses in our ED that I would trust to diagnose an issue I have more than some of the doctors they work with.

    Also bottom line: I don't care what Rogan decides to use. It was wrong for CNN to lie about Rogan taking horse dewormer which is ultimately, what I am disputing.

    I have no idea what you are rambling on about. Rogan is fine. He never coerced anyone to take ivermectin. Under his circumstances and him having the ability to afford the best doctors, he was told ivermectin with other medication could help him. It's really that simple.
    True he can take Viagra to treat his COVID but we donít have to pretend like itís a valid medical treatment with any sort of credibility behind it.

    Having worked in the legal field I have a lot less faith in lawyers than I did before I got into it, so I feel you there.

    But there is not a test or measure around where Doctors donít score better than the average population measuring intelligence or academic achievement. You can say our educational system is flawed, but at a certain point if every measure points to them being on average smarter, they probably are on average, even if I agree some are not smart at all.

    I think we're somewhat on the same page here, even if we disagree slightly.

    My goodness are you an angry buffoon. Idgaf how brainless dolts like you and dbroncsinmo talk to and/or about me. In fact, I take it as a badge of honor when worthless human flesh bags like you devolve in to these types of posts towards me. Shows me that the things I say around here are most certainly getting under your skin. I dared question your medical "expertise" over a year ago and you are still flippin' out over every post I make, like some thin skinned child. I'm not looking for common ground or peace with people like you, I'm simply laughing at how painfully moronic and hateful you are. Your little meltdowns are nothing but free comedy to me.

    Keep projecting and keep fantasizing about me though. Makes you look super smart, cool, and tough.

    Keep telling us how much more knowledgeable you are than the collective wisdom of a world full of doctors and scientists, oh delusional one.

    Yup. He's part of PSD'S three headed monster of medical wisdom with catman and ccugrad. They're all real pillars of medical knowledge.

    *ooh, almost forgot 20thk. Make that a FOUR headed monster of medical wisdom
