  1. Happy? I'm living with it with a positive outlook at least for now. You have a land size almost as large as ours with less than 1/10 the population. If you think you are doing better then think about that.
  2. Come on Paul. Your numbers say otherwise. Australia is a unique country. Sure you had some problems but except for a few large cities you are really spread out. Look at your population and land size compared to ours. Hail to the queen.
  3. There are 9 countries with more deaths per population than the US. All things considered, we are not doing so bad.
  4. Well, we have had protests with people shouting at close distances and young people having parties etc. etc . You got so much lightly inhabited land in Australia that you don't have the social distancing problem we do.
  5. Well. the proof is in the pudding. Show me the people who were reinfected that had the antibodies even if they were degraded. At best it is a scientific guess that they are not immune. Then i guess we will just have to wait and see. Save your money , you may need it. 🙂
  6. My original post only suggested that a degree of herd immunity might account for the negligible 2nd spike in NY based on the large number of deaths that point to an infection rate many times higher than all but 3 other states.
  7. Never said i was convinced . Said you don't know it doesn't.
  8. Well that's fine with me because that's not your decision to make. 🙂
  9. Where is the real data such as people who have had it getting it again?
  10. Russia claims to already have one. The past speed is no proof of the future. Science has come along way and I would bet you we have more than one vaccine here in the US before the end of the year oh ye of little faith. 🙂😃
  11. I read it. They don't as yet really understand the virus. There is a whole lot more to understand about such things as T cells that aid in immunity. There report uses the words Suggests.
  12. If it continued as many Democrats have insisted with the 2nd 3 trillion budget that they passed in Congress it would likely be devastating to the economy and cause more harm than the virus. Americans need to get back to work.There are too many livelihoods at stake Every day we stay shut down has a cost for the working class from which a return to prosperity will be prolonged with its congoing consequences
  13. Likewise there is no scientific evidence to say it doesn't on this virus. It has worked in the past but i never said we should wait for it. I think this thing will end with a Vaccine with smarter people than you and i working on it around the clock. Have faith grasshopper! 🙂🙂🙂
  14. You don't know what is going on here Paul. You live in Australia. Small business has been sucking it up for many months now and perhaps 1/3 to half of them have been destroyed already. So tell your own countrymen to suck it up and stay out of our business..🙂😛
  15. Asking is one thing. Requiring is another. One can protect oneself from one who refuses to comply. A restaurant can refuse to comply but if i disagree i will not go there. Driving is a privilege here in the US, not a right. Certain rules are necessary for the safety of others. Because it is a human rights issue and it need not be mandatory for the safety of all. If people want to take the risk be in their presence that is fine with me. Survival will rid itself of the foolish if that is what they are. so long as i am not forced into personal harm.
  16. Herd immunity occurs when enough people become immune to a disease to make its spread unlikely. As a result, the entire community is protected, even those who are not themselves immune. Herd immunity is usually achieved through vaccination, but it can also occur through natural infection. (now that is science) Your point and science concerning covid-19 is flawed at this time.since it is not yet proven and only assumed or suggested by some studies..
  17. It seems amazing to me that you are able to get in the presidents mind and shoes and make such statements. You must read a lot of mainstream news which in my view is no longer reporting news on the president but rather interpreting and slanting what he says to give it anti Trump spin for possible political reasons.
  18. Thomas, It seems to me you may be living in a hypothetical 'should be ' world with no basis in reality. What is absurd to me is for you to tell people what they should or shouldn't do.
  19. Not to argue the point but my experience would also without a doubt disagree with your statement here and be more in line with what elen said.
  20. I would not be so sure of what Jesus intended from the writings and teachings. https://www.cru.org/us/en/train-and-grow/share-the-gospel/evangelism-principles/jesus-and-the-gentiles.html and this NT parable from Jesus may also differ from your assessment. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parable_of_the_Great_Banquet
  21. I guess i don't understand your point in this statement. We are doing everything we can to get a vaccine as soon as possible. We are not waiting on herd immunity. As far as herd immunity goes, i implied that NY had a degree of herd immunity with their high extrapolated infection record considering their extremely high death rate per population and that would be a possibility for their decreased numbers compared to other states. The US values their freedoms and while i personally social distance , wear a mask and only frequent places with service that does likewise, i do not put my persona
  22. Please do not quote other posters in your post unless you just want to agree or say something positive about another's post.. This thread is not to debate or question other people's post. In post #1 it specifies to post your perception of what God is to you. No wrong answers, just views. Thanks, JosephM (as Moderator)
  23. No i was not referring to the King's study. but The King study only suggests Covid-19 antibodies can decline over time enough to be ineffective. The studies i have read see the decay only in those who have recovered from mild illness and they can't say for sure if it doesn't slow or stop at some point still in the effective range. Yes, . Three recent studies – from China, Britain and now the United States – have called into question how long people carry antibodies after infection. But the reality may be less dire than recent headlines suggest. The latest of these papers i
  24. We do agree and personally i don't require the Bible to confirm such but if that is what some want then they can read my post from 2007 here on the true Gospel message as relates to the Kingdom of God.... I think you might find it interesting and perhaps much in line with your words.
  25. In my view, there is much truth in this statement above. It seems to me some confuse it as being the same time for everyone which is to me, far from what has been revealed to me. The coming of Christ is present tense and in time different for each of us. A past post of mine ......
