AIDS Denialism

In the early days of the AIDS epidemic many bizarre and dangerous ideas were advanced regarding the origin of the disease and its cause. Since the discovery of the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) these conspiracy theories, which once filled the void left by the lack of information, have all but vanished. Over the past three decades HIV has been the subject of intense scientific research which has resulted in effective treatments, rapid HIV tests, and promising cures. Yet unbelievably there are a small number of people who are sceptical of the “official story”. Although these people are small in numbers they are extremely well funded and can pose a very real threat to public health. Many have chosen to spend their money on spreading their harmful theories, defend people who have irresponsibly infected their partners, and funded the documentary House of Numbers.

The documentary consists of interviews with scientists and AIDS denialists discussing the link between HIV and AIDS, the severity of AIDS in South Africa and, unbelievably, whether or not HIV exists at all. Brent Leung (the director, producer, and star) claims that the documentary gives an “objective examination of the idea the HIV causes AIDS” but nothing could be further from the truth in this sneakily edited piece of propaganda. The documentary encourages people to come off their medication, tells them that HIV tests don’t work, and that anti-viral drugs such as AZT are the real cause of AIDS. To do this the makers of the documentary make liberal use of out-of-context quotations from scientists interviewed for the film, deceitful editing techniques, and flat-out lies.

After viewing it myself, and realising how the movie tried to mislead viewers, I made a series of videos debunking several of the claims it made.

Mass Murders by Proxy

Many people who have watched my videos and read my articles critical of the AIDS denialist documentary ‘House of Numbers’ take solace in the idea that this rejection of science and logic is only confined to a very small percentage of the population. Yes, there might be the occasional very upsetting story of a mother […]

Anti-retroviral Medication

I have watched a lot of scientifically inaccurate documents in my time, and I have noticed that they all have one thing in common when it comes to trying to convince the viewer of the most ridiculous things. Rather than explaining their theories slowly and in-depth, they instead try and throw as much crap as […]

The Sad Case of Joyce Ann Hafford

I have previously bashed the AIDS denialist documentary ‘House of Numbers’ in the past for, among other things, it’s deceitful editing techniques. It quoted people out of context, chopped up dialogue to change the meaning of what is actually being said, and manipulated data. Even the foul-mouthed Liam Scheff who starred in the documentary admitted […]

Infantile Views on Evidence and More Shady Editing in the Documentary House of Numbers

By: Myles Power Edited by: Hannah & Peter One thing I have noticed about all conspiracy theorists where evidence is concerned, is that they all have an infantile view on what actually counts as evidence. They seem to believe that getting something on film is the only way to truly prove that something exists, or that something […]
