PREDICTING THE VIRUS’ FUTURE

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY APRIL 2, 2020

         PREDICTING THE FUTURE ABOUT ANYTHING IS ALWAYS DIFFICULT. IT’S FUN TO GO BACK IN HISTORY AND SEE WHAT PEOPLE FORECAST WOULD BE HAPPENING TODAY. IN ALMOST EVERY CASE THEY GOT IT WRONG.

         THESE COMPUTER MODELS SCIENTIFIC EXPERTS ARE PUTTING OUT MAY BE A MORE SOPHISTICATED FORM OF FORTUNE TELLING. THEY HAVE THEIR PLACE, BUT COMPUTERS HAVE BEEN WRONG WHEN NEW DATA IS PUT INTO THEM. THAT’S WHAT HAPPENED IN THE UK WHERE PREDICTIONS BASED ON MODELS OF ENORMOUS NUMBERS OF DEATHS FROM CORONAVIRUS HAVE BEEN DRASTICALLY SCALED BACK IN LIGHT NEW INFORMATION.

         THAT’S NOT TO SAY CAUTION IS THE BEST STRATEGY. BETTER TO BE CAUTIOUS AND WRONG THAN NOT TO BE CAUTIOUS AND CONTRACT THE VIRUS AND POSSIBLY DIE.

         I’M PRETTY WELL ISOLATED, WASHING MY HANDS AND KEEPING DISTANCE WHEN I DO ENCOUNTER OTHER PEOPLE. WE’RE TOLD THAT IS THE BEST PROTECTION STRATEGY, ALONG WITH NOT TOUCHING OUR FACES.

         AN EVEN BETTER STRATEGY IS TO PRAY THAT GOD WILL REMOVE THIS PESTILENCE FROM US AND TEACH US WHAT HE WANTS US TO KNOW. I’M CAL THOMAS.
