I'm a Christian. I believe the Bible. Both its historicity and its prophecy. And I especially believe its Savior.
I don't think the COVID-19 vaccine or vaccine passports are the "mark of the beast." (Because they neither bear the name or number of "the beast," nor are they on the right hand or forehead. At least not yet.)
But, gosh, it really seems like the world is using Revelation 13 for inspiring their plan!
"At the end of last year, you may recall hearing news reports that the number of COVID-19 cases in the United States had topped 20 million. …
"Now, a recent article published in Nature offers a more-comprehensive estimate that puts the true number of infections by the end of 2020 at more than 100 million. That’s equal to just under a third of the U.S. population of 328 million."
So that means COVID-19 is even _less_ deadly than thought!
Texas' upholding the abortion ban will save more lives in Texas than COVID-19 vaccinations ever would.
It saves more women.
It saves more blacks.
It saves more minority group members.
It saves more immigrants.
It saves more LGBT+ people.
It saves more democrats.
It saves more climate-crisis advocates.
Heck, it even saves more abortion-advocates.
Not your DNA, not your heartbeat, not your choice.
Change the category to all and switch to "recovered: no" and it's over 219K!
Add "hospitalized" and "existing hospitalization prolonged" and it's above 66K!
YIKES! Add "life-threatening" and "permanent disability," and it triples!
VAERS turns out to be easier than I thought to search. Interestingly, if you search for death as a "symptom" in step 2, it currently returns almost 6.9K. But if you more accurately search for death as an "event category" in step 5, it returns about 12.5K.
So some "fact checks" like https://www.reuters.com/article/factcheck-vaers-12000-idUSL1N2P21DB were probably run with invalid data, and thus need to be fact-checked.
Who fact-checks the fact-checkers?
I'm probably not the only one who misheard the Olympic awarding ceremony clip @adam played as saying it was the guy who invented "social distancing."
@Johncdvorak You could try Audacity's "Zero Point Crossing" function after making a selection and that often prevents those little audio artifacts.
