House of Numbers

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

April 12, 2015 // 2 Comments

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 [...]

Mass Murders by Proxy

June 1, 2014 // 16 Comments

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 recklessly infecting her child or someone neglecting to tell their sexual partner of their infection, but they happen so infrequently that it almost numbs the horrific [...]

Anti-retroviral Medication

April 18, 2014 // 20 Comments

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 they can at the screen in the hopes that you won’t see the holes in their arguments. These parts of the documentaries are also prime for quote mines, and often lack vital information [...]

On Monday, April 21st at 7:00PM I will be giving a talk on AIDS denialism, the documentry House of Numbers and the failure of the DMCA system at my local skeptics in the pub. The pub is called O’Connelss (29-41 Bedford street, Middlehaven, Middlesbrough, TS12LL) and it would be awsome to see some of you there. For more information click here. 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 Sad Case of Joyce Ann Hafford

March 30, 2014 // 6 Comments

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 that he was unfavourably edited. So it will come as no surprise that I have yet another example of the director and star, Brent [...]

Multiple DMCAs filed against my videos

February 8, 2014 // 73 Comments

Multiple DMCAs have been filed against me in order to silence my criticism of the movie House of Numbers. It appears that Liam only removed his DMCA to allow Martin Penny and the people at Knowledge Matters to file theirs. If these people had anything of merit to say, they would not have to silence a relatively unknown [...]

FUCK the Foo Fighters!!!!

August 26, 2013 // 16 Comments

By: Myles Power Edited by: Hannah . I am currently in the middle of research for a series of videos critical of the AIDS denialism movie House of Numbers. For my research I have been watching extended interviews with the scientists in the documentary, researching various AIDS denialist organisations and finding out about the people within these groups. I have been doing this for about 3 months now and for the whole time I have been unable to get rid of the feeling that I have heard all this [...]

Number-Gate

July 8, 2013 // 18 Comments

By: Myles Power Edited by: Peter & Hannah Written with the help from Snout . One thing I have had screamed at me over the internet in the past year is, “Follow the money! Follow the money!” This statement was originally a reference to the Watergate scandal, when reporters Woodward and Bernstein traced the source of the money paid to the Watergate burglars. Their investigation lead to the discovery of a link between the break-in and the Committee for the Re-Election of the [...]

Time Travel and HIV Tests in the Movie ‘House of Numbers’

June 9, 2013 // 8 Comments

By: Myles Power Edited by: Peter & Hannah I recently watched the AIDS denialist film ‘House of Numbers’ for a second time, to see if I had missed anything. As it turns out, I did miss something upon my first viewing. One of the people featured in the movie either has a super power, or is a time lord. Christine Maggiore (a prominent AIDS denier who died of AIDS before House of Numbers was released) has the ability to travel through time!!! She showed us an example of her using this [...]

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

May 24, 2013 // 33 Comments

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 happened. I have previously talked about this phenomenon in my 9/11 mini series, where I discussed the lack of footage of the collapse of WTC7 from the south, the [...]

Outright Lies in the Documentary House of Numbers

May 22, 2013 // 31 Comments

By: Myles Power Edited by: Hannah In 2009 Brent Leung released the AIDS denial movie, House of Numbers. Brent claims the movie was an ‘objective examination of the idea that HIV causes AIDS’ but in reality, nothing could be further from the truth. I have previously discussed how the movie missed out vital information when it featured a woman talking about the benefits of not taking anti-HIV medication, but failed to mention that both herself and her daughter died of AIDS before [...]

Vital Information Missing in the Documentary House of Numbers

May 20, 2013 // 20 Comments

By: Myles Power Edited by: Hannah & James Gurney . I recently watched a documentary film suggested by one of my subscribers called ‘House of Numbers’. The documentary consists of interviews with scientists and acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) denialists, discussing the link between the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and AIDS, the severity of AIDS in South Africa and, unbelievably, whether or not HIV exists at all. The film was directed and produced by, and [...]
