FAITH: Chopra says HIV does not cause AIDS.

FAITH: Chopra says HIV does not cause AIDS. January 30, 2015

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the difference between a laughing stock and a danger to people’s lives.

In this video titled “Two Great Minds Question HIV/AIDS” two absolute derpshits, Deepak Chopra and “life coach” Tony Robbins (who is inexplicably worth about $30 million), question whether or not HIV causes AIDS, among other things.  Their conclusion?  Nope!  Why?  Because words.  The “magic” starts at the 22:20 mark:

Chopra: HIV may be a precipitating agent in a susceptible host. The material agent is never the cause of the disease. It may be the final factor in inducing the full-blown syndrome in somebody who’s already susceptible.

Robbins: But what made them susceptible?

Chopra: Their own interpretations of the whole reality they’re participating in.

Robbins: Could that be translated into their thoughts, their feelings, their beliefs, their lifestyle?

Chopra: Absolutely. . .

If you just don’t believe in AIDS it’ll go away.  I tried this very approach with Deepak Chopra.  I tried, with all my might, to believe he didn’t exist with a hope that exceeded the sum of all other hope that he would, for the good of the earth, go away.  But there’s a problem – if we see something, we almost always believe it exists and, sadly, I can still see his dangerous, misinforming face.  Just like it’s easy to see that AIDS exists and its progenitor is HIV.
