Nobel Prize Winner Kary Mullis Challenges The Myths About AIDS

The inventor of the PCR, Kary Mullis, points out the issues of institutionalized science.


The way to get rid of AIDS is to stop funding it. Just stop […] everything that’s called AIDS research. [If] somebody tries to get a grant for AIDS research say “We’re not doing it anymore. We don’t have AIDS.” – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uPYFjDSG0JU#t=17m33s

There are no old wise men up there at the top of science. – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uPYFjDSG0JU#t=18m7s

Until 68 I would have thought […]: If you try to publish a dumb paper in a journal like nature, it won’t get published. – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uPYFjDSG0JU#t=18m13s

There isn’t an “up there!” there. The academy of science is just a bunch of idiots just like everybody else. – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uPYFjDSG0JU#t=18m31s

There are no old wise men up on the top making sure that we don’t do somethin’ really dumb. – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uPYFjDSG0JU#t=18m45s
