The Fallacious Germ Theory
Most people who believe in science also believe that germs make us sick and defenses must be ‘built up’ to keep us safe. We mistakenly think exposing ourselves to these ‘germs’ builds our defenses, antibodies, etc, thereby ‘strengthening our ‘immune system’. But, there is no “immune system”. There is only health, and we build health by providing salubrious conditions for the human body, not by exposing ourselves to poison in hopes that it will ‘make our immune system stronger’. People who seem to have better ‘immune systems’ than others are just healthier in general, and the healthier you are, the less likely you are to get sick. It’s as simple as that.
In 1864, French chemist Louis Pasteur fathered “The Science of Bacteriology” and “The Germ Theory of Disease Causation” by demonstrating the existence of various micro-organisms— and concluding that these germs cause pathogenic changes in living cultures within the laboratory setting.
The germ theory states that diseases are due solely to invasion by specific aggressive micro- organisms. A specific germ is responsible for each disease, and micro-organisms are capable of reproduction and transportation outside of the body. With the germ theory of disease, no longer did we have to take responsibility for sickness caused by our own transgressions of the laws of health. Instead, we blamed germs that invade the body.
The germ theory effectively shifted our personal responsibility for health and well-being onto the shoulders of the medical profession who supposedly knew how to kill off the offending germs. Our own personal health slipped from our control.
Almost everyone in the Western world has been nurtured on the germ theory of disease: that disease is the direct consequence of the work of some outside agent, be it germ or virus. -Arthur M. Baker
We’ve learned that the healthier a person is the less likely they are to get sick. This aspect of the immune system is correct, but the naming of it is all wrong. Immunity does not exist. Germs don’t invade your body and cause disease, so “building up immunity” and “strengthening your immune system” to ward off those nasty germs is a lost cause. We can only build our health by providing the body with what it needs, and steering clear of chemicals, vaccines, medicines, and other magical allopathic potions that are supposed to lead to a salubrious life, but only cause more iatrogenic deaths.
Science is like a new religion. Once originally called ‘Natural Philosophy’, this new form of worship disregards common sense for the appeal to the authority and other logical fallacies. There is no longer any philosophy to it. The love of wisdom has been lost. Science is no longer “science” when corruption so pervasively dominates the scientific community. The almighty dollar is the universally accepted icon of worship, and in Scientism, the shareholders are the Gods.
