20 Oct 2020
A Nobel Prize-winning chemist and Stanford professor has been cancelled for wrongthink on coronavirus.
Professor Michael Levitt, who gained the Nobel prize for Chemistry in 2013, was resulting from be the keynote speaker in December at a digital convention on his areas of particular experience – computational biology and biodesign.
However the First Worldwide Biodesign Analysis Convention withdrew his invitation – in keeping with Levitt as a result of they’d obtained ‘too many calls’ from different audio system ‘threatening to stop’ due to his views on Chinese language coronavirus. He has lengthy maintained that the menace is overblown and that ‘we’re going to be high-quality.’

“… too many calls by different audio system threatening to stop in case you had been there. All of them complained about your COVID claims”.
Computational biology & biodesign are primarily based on my work. Time to cancel them & me.
New Darkish Age Cometh.
