My Response to an Intelligent Design Proponent on COVID


When I sent a friend and colleague from the Intelligent Design community my article titled “Time for Accountability, not Pandemic Amnesty,” in November of last year, they responded that: “You surprised me with this article. I agree that mandates are wrong, but I don’t agree that the vaccines caused more deaths than COVID did.”

What follows is my email response to this friend. I have kept their identity anonymous out of respect for their privacy. I’m just curious what others in the ID community think of how ID people have been silent on this issue. I noticed that William Dembski has been campaigning for Robert F. Kennedy Jr. recently, so I’d be curious to hear his thoughts on the matter. Feel free to leave comments below.

Dear ___,

Thanks for your email. Why were you surprised? I suppose my views aren’t popular, but I back my claims in my book: COVID-19: A Dystopian Delusion: Examining the Machinations of Governments, Health Organizations, the Globalist Elites, Big Pharma, Big Tech, and the Legacy Media.

Here’s an excerpt from my book that you can peruse if you’re interested:

You can see the contents, index, and preface I wrote. I critique almost every aspect of the COVID fiasco.

The purpose of the book was to bear historical witness to many of the events that the world has experienced over the past 2.5 years and to show who is who in all of this. It shows who risked their reputation and stood up for what is right, just, and true, versus many who have been involved in scandals and/or kept silent.

I choose to stand up for truth, love, and justice regardless of what I can gain from it. I’ve lost friends, had hardships with family members, and have had difficulties with employment because of it. However, I don’t regret my stance at all.

I don’t make the claim that the COVID vaccines have caused more deaths than COVID. I simply state that the “cure” is more deadly than the disease. What I mean by that is that the measures, including lockdowns, vaccines, postponement of vital surgeries, the administering of remdesivir, and demonization of well-known early preventative treatments, etc., have caused more harm and deaths. These measures have been proven to be unscientific and unethical. Having said that, I don’t downplay the harm that COVID has caused, but the response, which is becoming clearer and clearer, was a total failure, and an alarming amount of corruption and lies have been brought to light because of this.

I should also point out that there is an undeniable double standard here: many deaths have been misattributed to COVID, whereas any deaths or injuries associated with COVID injections (occurring shortly after being injected) have been flat-out denied, ignored, ridiculed, or downplayed. We must ask why this is the case. The mere fact that these vaccines are still on the market despite being ineffective (not stopping transmission or preventing infection, not to mention that they were never even tested in the first place to prevent transmission) and dangerous should sound alarm bells for anyone. The number of reported deaths and injuries associated with these vaccines is rather disturbing; if there were only 15–30 deaths, they should’ve been pulled off the market until they were proven to be effective and safe, but that never happened. (The H1N1 vaccine was pulled after 25 associated deaths!) The most egregious aspect is the total disregard for informed consent and the push to have anyone under 19 (let alone anyone healthy) coerced into receiving them when there is practically a zero percent chance of death and close to that for hospitalization!

Currently, here in Canada, there is a doctor investigating the sudden deaths of 90 healthy physicians who have received the COVID vaccines and boosters over the past 1.5+ years. The colleges of physicians are utterly silent when asked to investigate this. And other doctors mocked this investigating doctor. Have a look here:

This is very chilling and disturbing. (**This is an additional note that was not in the original email: Things have gotten much worse since then. To see how much worse, look at Dr. Makis’s rumble video at the bottom of this article. You can also follow him on X (formerly Twitter) to learn about the devastating effects of the COVID-19 vaccine on many:

I presented on the relinquishing of freedoms under the guise of public health safety a couple of weekends ago, and a professor in California via Zoom asked me what I would estimate the worldwide death toll from COVID-19 was. I responded that it is impossible to know for the following reasons:

• Autopsy reports are seldom produced, so we can’t verify the deaths.

• The polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test is incredibly inaccurate or even fraudulent. The 1993 Nobel Prize winner in Chemistry and inventor of the PCR test, Kary Mullis, emphasized that the PCR test is not meant to be a diagnostic tool and that the further you increase the cycle thresholds, the more likely you are to find what you are looking for.

• The CDC even admitted it cannot consistently distinguish between the flu and COVID-19.

• The distinction between dying with and without COVID is seldom made, and how can we possibly know in such cases?

• There has been widespread corruption where many doctors, nurses, and health practitioners have been compromised (Collins and Fauci happen to be at the forefront of it).

I’ve been disturbed by the actions of governments, health organizations, Big Pharma, Big Tech, and mainstream media in their handling of this situation. In my book, I argue and present evidence of the deep psychological attacks by these institutions. The rampant censorship is of deep concern as well. Why have many reputable doctors been censored and attacked for holding views contrary to the “consensus” view?

As a side thought, it had really intrigued and puzzled me as to why so many ID proponents and creationists were okay with the censorship or with labeling people conspiracy theorists for presenting a counter-narrative, considering they themselves have been subject to cancellation, censorship, ridicule, and the like for many years.

Best wishes,
