“One of the virtues of meta-analysis is that it allows conclusions to be adjusted with changing evidence. One Randomized Controlled Trial included in the BIRD Group’s meta-analysis of Ivermectin has been challenged in The Guardian. It is unclear if the study in question is fatally flawed. In this clip, Tess Lawrie shows us what happens to the meta-analysis when the suspect study is eliminated. Answer: the estimate of the medication’s effectiveness change somewhat (prevention of death drop’s from 62% to 49%. Prophylactic effectiveness goes up slightly from 86% to 87%. Confidence intervals become somewhat wider). The conclusion of the analysis remains the same: Ivermectin reduces deaths substantially and is a very effective preventive measure against the contraction of COVID-19.

“Evangelical radio-host, Todd Friel, took on the non-believer objection that the Bible we have today is the product of the telephone game. He threw to Wretched host John Fabarez in his “Road Trip to Truth” video series, but both men and the guest apologist completely missed the point of the objection.

It’s pretty obvious, but I decided it was worth a few minutes to clarify the nature of the telephone game objection, and point out how it very much still stands and that Todd and crew were dodging the question better than Neo dodged bullets in the Matrix.”
