I have always tried to emphasize that the Big Lie of the birdemic may go all the way down; in the sense that there may be literally no single-causal infective agent.
Reading the relevant chapters of David Icke's most recent (and very worthwhile) book "Perceptions of a Renegade Mind" - which focuses on the birdemic - reminds me that it is quite possible (scientifically speaking) that there may not be any new and specific agent which causes the medical conditions which are supposed to justify the totalitarian response.
The whole thing may be nothing-but an exercise in relabeling - that is an absolutely credible scenario.
In this world of dominant, endemic lies and core incompetence - I do not believe that we can know exactly what is and is not the truth behind the scam; a wide range of possibilities are plausible.
There may be no single agent, there may be some influence from a new (and engineered) agent, which may have emerged from a range of accidents and deliberate spread; and has gathered a large but various proportion of fake attributions...
Many things are possible and plausible because the definition of the birdemic agent is so vague and loose; because 'the test' is so grossly inappropriate and inaccurate that its false positives may range from high to total.
That is there may be 'a lot' of FPs - where 'a lot' covers a wide range of percentage FPs - or all positives may be false. These situations will surely vary in different circumstances, and across time.
And 'the peck' is not a 'the' since the term officially encompasses several very different types of agent, and unofficially (in different times and places and persons) may contain... well nobody knows.
Nobody knows. In a global discourse of liars who neither seek nor speak the truth - nobody knows.
Luckily, it does not matter what is the exact reality wrt. the birdemic - so long as we do not fall into the trap of believing that the 'material' reality is determinative.
This is a spiritual war; and we need to keep reminding ourselves that it is the spiritual reality which we need to discern.
Even if (which is certainly Not the case; because we know it is permeated with multiple deliberate lies) the official story of the material birdemic were 100% true; this fact would not affect the spiritual reality that the birdemic is a tool of the powers of evil; strategically aimed against God, creation and The Good.
That's what we must know; and all the rest are shades of opinion.
