Default Was COVID-19 Man Made in Chinese Lab?

Do you guys believe the “official” story that it started in a wet market, or do you think it was man made in a Wuhan lab? I tend to lean towards man made, since the CCP is not the most trustworthy group.

CCP is definitely not trustworthy, but they absolutely had no incentive to create a virus bio-weapon which would only be useful as a terror WMD... especially since the US only has one response to WMD attack: Regime change, and nuclear weapons would definitely be on the table.

Also, analysis was done early in the year to determine if covid was man-made and it's not. There would be tell-tale physical signs of genetic engineering... basically it's hard to splice stuff at the molecular level without leaving any loose ends. The only way to avoid that would be to use natural selective breeding... but in order to selectively breed a HUMAN virus to have specific properties in HUMANS, you'd have to use a VERY large number of HUMAN subjects as incubators. Probably hundreds of thousands at least, maybe more, so totally impractical.

Remotely possible they were doing legit research on an animal virus and it accidentally got loose from the lab in Wuhan (which is a legit research facility).

Applying western society and culture logic trains to the thinking and behaviors of a closed totalitarian regime determined to be the dominant military and economic world power is a big mistake.

No question this virus came from a CCP bio lab. With high probability associated with military research.....since virtually EVERY aspect of thr CCP state function is tied into military priorities.

The CCP infected the entire world with their virus. The charitable best case for this disaster is galactic incompetence.

I doubt even Vegas would have a betting line on the incompetence theory.

I believe it was spread through chem-trails. I mean, what else explains how fast it spread over the entire globe?

I'm not, I have a great deal of military experience, and the majority of it is right up this alley. I do understand how they think, the USG spent a lot of money on me to make sure of that.

BS. Such a virus has zero military utility, none whatsoever. They wouldn't waste the money, they NEED that money for all of the REAL military expansion they are doing.

It is plausible that it escaped from the lab. More likely it came from the wild via the wet market, there's a REASON that lab was located where it is....

The irony here is that you're trusting CCP propaganda over science.
