How Mad Science gets sold

A friend sent me this article touting the idea that if you get fully vaccinated and then get Covid anyway, that then you’re going to get super-immunity. So, you see, really it’s a good thing.
And note that the term “breakthrough infection” is just a euphemism. I don’t call it that. I call it evidence that the vaccine didn’t do a damn thing for you. And remember that no matter what happens, they are always going to defend the vaccine. If you get a mild case of Covid with the vaccine, you would have gotten a worse case without the vaccine. If you get a severe case with the vaccine, you would have gotten a life-threatening case without the vaccine. And if you die after having been vaccinated, then you surely would have died sooner if you weren’t vaccinated. So, it gave you precious time with your loved ones. It’s a “heads I win/tails you lose” situation. And there is absolutely nothing that these people won’t stoop to claiming.
But, concerning antibodies, the practice of vaccination long precedes the discovery of antibodies. According to vaccination lore, the practice of vaccinating goes back to ancient times, but the first “scientific” vaccination occurred in England in 1796 when Dr. Edward Jenner concluded that cow pox, which milkmaids often got on their hands with pustular lesions from handling cow udders, was related to small pox. So, he took some pus from a milkmaid’s pustule and injected it into an 8 year old boy. The boy got acutely ill for several days but recovered, and then Jenner declared the boy to be immune to small pox.
But, how could Jenner possibly know that? Because the boy didn’t go on to get small pox? That’s ridiculous because even during the worst of times, there were plenty of people who didn’t get small pox. What about all the people who didn’t get injected with pus and who didn’t get small pox? How were they protected? How did they avoid getting sick? And why couldn’t the boy have been protected the same way?
So, it was NEVER a reasonable assumption that anything good was done for that boy, but that didn’t stop Harvard and Oxford and Cambridge and other hallowed institutions from heaping praise on Jenner and granting him awards and honors.
The discovery and history of antibodies has always been closely tied to vaccination. The search for them was sought precisely to justify vaccinations. The first reference to them was by Behring and Kitasato in 1890, but the first to claim to identify the molecular structure of antibodies was Edelman and Porter in 1959.
Your body has the innate ability to resist pathogens, including pathogens that it encounters for the first time. This resistance involves a myriad of responses, including fever, inflammation, and the activation of certain cells, particularly white blood cells, which attack the invader. The process does NOT depend on having specific antibodies to the invader in advance. There are too many pathogens out there, and your body can’t possibly retain specific antibodies to all of them. It is ridiculous to think that human survival depended on that.
I’ll give you an example. Let’s say you get a kidney transplant, and that your good pal Charlie is the one who donates a kidney to you. Well, obviously, your immune system is not going to accept Charlie’s kidney and will immediately reject it. And that’s why they have to give you anti-rejection drugs. But, it’s not as though you had any pre-existing anti-Charlie antibodies. It's not as though you were ever immunized against Charlie. It happens anyway. Your resistance to having his cells in your body is innate. It doesn’t depend on prior exposure or having made any adaptations in advance. The mere presence of his cells in your body activates the immune response- even though you don’t have anti-Charlie antibodies.
Do I, at this moment, have any anti-Covid antibodies in me? I have no idea, but it wouldn’t bother me in the least if I don’t. And I certainly wouldn’t do anything to try to acquire anti-Covid antibodies. “Oh no! I don’t have anti-Covid antibodies! I’m at risk! I’m going to die.” It’s just medically-bred paranoia. I’m sure there are all kinds of antibodies that I don’t have. And overall, my white blood cell count is low. I just had blood work done recently. The normal range for WBCs is said to be 3.4 to 10.8 and mine was 2.9. And it says that it’s low: out of range on the low side. But, the fact is that it’s been that way for decades. And there are doctors whom I respect, such as Ray Wolford, who have said that when people eat well and take care of themselves, that they tend to have lower white cell counts. If my body needed more white blood cells, it would make them. I have a smaller number because that's all I need. And my differential count was perfect with zero immature cells and zero abnormal cells. So, my body isn’t under any stress at all from this. If it was, I would be sickly, and I'm not.
So, I’m not worried about it, and I’m not worried about my antibodies either. The whole idea of antibodies is mostly just a vaccine promotion campaign. The whole idea of them is just something they latched onto, first, to justify, and then, to sell, their damn vaccines.
