#072 – Conversation with the Author of an AIDs Denialist Book

The League of Nerds

Myles and James sat down with Steven Ransom, author of the AIDs denying book ‘The Truth about HIV”. We explored Steven’s opinions about the existence of the Virus that is the causative agent of AIDs. Steven’s position is that the virus doesn’t exist, even when confronted by evidence. Steven is a sign of failure in the ability of scientist to tell people exactly how and why they work. An example of one such failure that has the potential to lead to the unnecessary suffering of many people.

  1. When confronted with evidence like HIV fiting with everything we know about viruses he simply denies viruses exist.

    You guys were amazing with this (dangerously ignorant) man. Side note, his language of always referring to scientists by using masculine pronouns.
