This week we start by recommending a German Podcast Christmas Special, we report that Sucharit Bhaktdi won the Goldene Brett award and talk about the Saturn / Jupiter planetary conjunction. Pontus reports the his book “the Dooma” is slightly delayed and then we get into the news:

  • Our friend Martin Moder made a very good video about the safety of the new CoVid vaccine
  • Improved trust in science within Swedish public during 2020
  • Trust in media sources has risen
  • Comment by Swedish king about corona is so way off it’s not even wrong
  • Karaoke bar from Berlin trying to sue virologist Professor Drosten – surely that will stop CoViD?
  • ARP-SAPC publishes a monography on COVID-19 and critical thinking
  • Huge differences in Covid vaccine prizes, but all are cheaper than expected
  • 2020 on track to become one of three warmest years on record
  • Santa apparently is immune to CoViD! We are of course skeptical, not of WHO or CoViD, but of Santa – but the Christmas presents are safe!

Enjoy!

1:14:27 QUOTE AND FAREWELL
“To explain all nature is too difficult a task for any one man or even for any one age. ‘Tis much better to do a little with certainty, & leave the rest for others that come after you, than to explain all things by conjecture without making sure of any thing.”
/ Sir Isaac Newton (25 December 1642 – 20 March 1726/27), English mathematician, physicist, astronomer, theologian, and author /
