US Lab Director Who Visited Wuhan Viral Lab Claims that “Accidents Happen”

Published

According to a Houston Chronicle report, James Le Duc, the director of the Galveston National Laboratory at the University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB), is of the opinion that an accident in the Wuhan lab could have kicked off the global pandemic that everyone must now put up with.

“Accidents happen,” Le Duc, a former Centers for Disease Control and Prevention official, informed the Chronicle.

“You do your best to prevent it, and you prepare for an eventuality if it should happen. So all I can say is (the Wuhan lab) was built comparable to ours, with a whole series of redundant safety measures in place.” he continued.

“We did our best to share best practices so that they knew how to drive it and keep it safe. But it would be foolish to say there’s no risk, because there’s risk in everything.” Le Duc noted.

Le Duc was part of a team that provided training to staff in the Wuhan lab. He pointed out that China has a lack of experience when it comes to establishing biocontainment labs with tight security standards when compared to the U.S.

“I can say that this was a brand-new laboratory that was working at a level of biocontainment that they had not worked at in the past, so it’s not surprising that they don’t have a whole lot of people with experience in it,” stated Le Duc.

Regarding the current investigations into the potential lab origin of the pandemic, Le Duc viewed it as “speculation”, but urged that “I think it’s very appropriate that people look into this because that’s where some of the work is done.”

“I think the Chinese government has done themselves and the global community a big disservice by not being more transparent as to what’s going on, but that’s a whole different set of issues.” Le Duc opined.

The scientist’s comments came after a world renowned Russian microbiologist claimed that the novel virus responsible for the Wuhan virus pandemic was the consequence of Wuhan scientists doing “absolutely crazy things” in their lab.

Dr. Peter Chumakov of the Engelhardt Institute of Molecular Biology and Russian Academy of Sciences believes that the Wuhan scientists’ attempts to create the Wuhan virus was not with malicious intent. However, Chumakov stated that the scientists added “inserts in the genome, which gave the virus the ability to infect human cells.”

“There are several inserts, that is, substitutions of the natural sequence of the genome, which gave it special properties,” Chumakov highlighted, suggesting that the Wuhan lab was working on a vaccine for HIV.

“I think that an investigation will nevertheless be initiated, as a result of which new rules will be developed that regulate the work with the genomes of such dangerous viruses,” the Russian scientist concluded.

Southern Baptist Convention Reverses Course on Name Change After BLP Reporting

They say they’re not changing their name.

The Southern Baptist Convention has sought to dispel reporting from Big League Politics on the organization’s planned name change, arguing that the institution isn’t formally changing its name.

But a close look at the American Christian church’s plans relating to its name reveal that it’s played with the idea far more seriously than they’re making it seem.

Reports of a name change first emerged in a Washington Post article published on Tuesday. SBC President JD Greear told the Post that “hundreds of churches” affiliated with the denomination had “committed” to using the phrase “Great Commission Baptist” as an alternative to the denomination’s longtime moniker. The change would come as Greear touts his support of the Black Lives Matter, although he’s been careful in pointing out he doesn’t support any formal organization related to the movement. Greear also is renaming the church he personally pastors with the term.

The SBC’s 2021 convention will also organize under the motto of “We Are Great Commission Baptists.” Sounds a lot like a name change, even if the SBC’s leadership is steadfastly maintaining it isn’t.

The name ‘Great Commission Baptist’ is theologically sound in the Christian religion, but it’s somewhat questionable that the organization’s leader appears to be emphasizing it at a moment in which political correctness is making its entryism into many Christian churches and organizations.

It seems as if the organization’s figurehead is keen to present himself as a liberal-style suburban Evangelical to the Washington Post, but he changed his tune quite quickly when the rank and file membership of Southern Baptist churches learned that he was promoting the idea of a name change.
