It is unfortunate that Dr Kary Mullis passed away in August of 2019, just prior to the start of the pandemic. It would have been interesting to have seen his reaction to all this, though it isn’t hard to imagine what that reaction might have been.
Doctor Mullis was an outspoken critic of Anthony Fauci, claiming that “he doesn’t know anything, really, about anything — and I’d say that to his face — nothing!” and was also skeptical of the declared AIDS epidemic, also promoted by Dr Fauci back in the day.
Doctor Mullis won the Nobel Prize in 1993 for inventing the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) technique that is used to amplify genetic molecules into billions of copies.
Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) molecules are heated up in a machine which causes them to separate into their individual helices (a DNA molecule consists of a double helix). Nucleotide annealing agents are added to the cooling process which recombine with the separated helices according to their respective base pairings, thus repairing the double helix structure of each DNA molecule. So, if you start out with one DNA double helix, it will be separated and recombined into two double helices using this process; repeat the cycle and you double your results again — after many cycles billions of copies can be produced from very little starting stock.
A version of this technique, known as reverse transcription (RT) PCR has been used to “test” patient samples for COVID-19 (C19). However, numerous scientists have taken issue with the way it has been used to detect C19 and determine “cases,” claiming that it has been causing false positives; even the inventor of the PCR technique, Dr Kary Mullis, said that “with PCR, if you do it well, you can find almost anything in anybody.”
If you can amplify one single molecule up to something which you can really measure — which PCR can do — there’s very few molecules that you don’t have at least one single one of them in your body. PCR is just a process that is used to make a whole lot of something out of something. It doesn’t tell you that you’re sick or that the thing you ended up with is gonna hurt you.
