The backbone of science is being skeptical and asking questions. Denying that simple fact is ripping out the rug beneath the whole field of science. Disrespecting people for being skeptical is wrong and un-scientific.
The slogan “trust the scientists” has replaced the need for healthy skepticism. @michaeljknowles and @DrBrianKeating discuss.— PragerU (@prageru) January 28, 2021

The key for scientists is to make decisions based on empirical evidence. Today, many scientists, and many in the medical establishment, are saying that we should trust the data regarding the corona/covid-19 vaccines. We would be ok with that if they would also allow for those who have questions and concerns and honestly look into them research them and respect them, even if they voice skepticism. Today, however, anyone who voices a question or a concern is shut down, shamed and sometimes even censored. That is not science.
Why is the whole scientific/medical community suppressing information about the Hydoroxychloroquine early-diagnosis medical treatment that could be saving hundreds of thousands of lives? As of today, if you are diagnosed with corona/covid-19 you are told to stay at home, without any treatment, until you have to go to the hospital. Does that make any sense?
There are plenty of studies and trials with data from around the world that show that there are medications that are working when people are diagnoses early. Anyone who asks why people aren’t being informed about this early-diagnosis medical treatment is treated horribly. Does that make any sense?
Why is the whole medical establishment focused on rolling out an emergency-approved experimental vaccine with no long-term data of medical consequences, instead of focusing on using, and developing, medication based on existing medications that are known to work on viruses? There are plenty of data and studies, yet people are forbidden to even ask these questions. The horrifying thing is that scientists and doctors who ask these questions or talk about existing medical treatments are shamed by their own peers and shut down.
Anyone who asks a question about is shut down and shunned. Anyone who uploads a video to youtube about it is punished and the video is removed. Even the website of Dr. Zelenko with all the medical information about the Hydoroxychloroquine treatment can not be found on google. Google is suppressing it with their algorithm! Here is the website for people to understand what it is about https://www.vladimirzelenkomd.com/
So, yes, a healthy dose of skepticism is healthy – especially when hundreds of millions of dollars are involved from pharmaceutical companies. When empirical scientific evidence such as the 94-95% number of people who have taken the vaccines ended up curtailing the spread of the coronavirus, that is a fact that we can accept.
But when pharmaceutical companies claim that there will be no long-risk of taking their vaccines, that is something that we should be skeptical about. They do not have the data to make such promises. It’s impossible for them to make such claims. We all hope that is true, but nobody knows that without the data. That is where marketing takes over for science. So, when recommendations are made that everybody take a vaccine, the understanding should be that this will certainly save lives from coronavirus. But, as far as the long-term ramifications of the vaccine, nobody can definitively say that anybody is aware of the true long-term risks.
The bottom line is that people, scientists and doctors, should be able to ask questions, be skeptical, be informed and then make informed decisions.
Whether one wants to use an early-diagnosis medical treatment like Dr. Zelenko’s or take the vaccine is up to each person. But nobody should be shamed just because they are skeptical, ask questions and are looking for more information.
May we all make wise decisions and have trust in only one thing – the Lord.
