A SIMPLE EXAMPLE - HONEY DOES NOT CURE AND BLACK CUMIN DOES NOT HEAL GENITAL HERPES INFECTIONS - A FACT VALIDATED & VERIFIED BY THE US CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) AND SUPPORTED BY CAMBRIDGE's MRC LMB (Medical Research Council Laboratory of Molecular Biology)
More than 2 decades ago, when I was studying for the CLP, I wrote to the then Malaysian PM, Dr. Mahathir - a trained physician - that I wanted to observe and learn. Then the Nipah virus struck. This posting isn't about the Nipah virus. But the self-attained lesson is clear.
Genital Herpes is caused by the Herpes Simplex Virus (HSV). It has been published in the journal Virus Evolution, that proto-humans reacquired the herpes simplex-2 virus (HSV2), responsible for genital herpes, somewhere between three and 1.4 million years ago.
Thus, according to academic and medical research, Genital Herpes has been without any cure for 3-1.4 million years ago. Genital herpes is a common sexually transmitted disease (STD) and illness suffered. On 2015, there were 846 million recorded prevalence of Genital Herpes.
As of today, 26 March 2020, the US CDC states there is NO CURE FOR GENITAL HERPES. Unless there are sufferers who have embalmed their genitalia with honey and black cumin seeds/oil and provided the public healthcare authorities with actual medical records of their recovery and cured state, the world will continue to believe that Science has the upperhand and proven its point.
There are those who staunchly believe that the black cumin is healing for all diseases except death and that honey is a cure for every illness. Then, there are fanatics and zealots who will cause great suffering and misery to ethno-religious groups such as the Yazidis and Christian minorities in the form of atrocity crimes due to their staunch beliefs and even personal interests.
There are CDC medical personnel who clearly believe in the Hippocratic Oath. Saving Lives Is Not Just A Mere Creed. It is their Eternal Ethos.
Samuel Huntington thought it was a Clash of Civilizations. To me, it is a clear-cut Clash of Science and Ideological Beliefs.
Science, in this scenario, Medical Science has Disproved Ideological Belief.
Today on 26 March 2020, more than 20 years after I wrote to Dr. Mahathir asking to observe and learn, Covid-19 has struck the world. Thousands have died worldwide. Many are suffering.
I put my faith in Science.
