Like climate scientists who believe science is ultimate truth and the cure for global warming, they conveniently neglect the scientific fact that science is responsible for fossil fuel production which created the climate crisis. Science with no moral underpinnings is responsible for the Tower of Babel, the Titanic disaster, the space shuttle Challenger disaster, the spectre of nuclear war hanging over humanity for all eternity, and now the coronavirus pathogens infecting the human species forever. Fauci justified his decision in 2012 to provide funding to the PLA front group at the WIV for gain-of-function research, converting deadly pathogens which only bats were susceptible over to infecting humans - despite dire warnings from within the scientific community, in his words, "the benefits of such experiments and the resulting knowledge outweigh the risks.”
Scientific progress was the motivating factor behind the Great Leap Forward in the late 1950s which systematically murdered some 60 million people by violence and by government-induced economic pressures and famine. The scientific progress was intended to tear China away from its 3,000-year-old traditional culture and norms. Fauci partnered with the same political party - the Chinese Communist Party - which has never held a free election nor reformed its ideology of holding the lives of individual citizens in low regard, in his gain-of-function research.
