RE: Anthony Fauci vs Kary Mullis: who would you trust?

Actually, the notion that drugs can alter your perception - including for the better - is far from crazy.

And the statement you quote Fauci make - which he had revised many times, without much of an explanation - maybe his sanest on the subject. Masks may be useful as a virus spread preventative under certain limited circumstances - but they are quite useless in the majority of situations. And when you see people walking around in masks on a sunny day you can be all but sure these masks make no difference as far as potential spread of COVID of flu - but may indeed endanger the wearer's health as they serve as a collector and breeding ground for all sorts of pathogens.

I do not question that they alter your perception. This is all what drugs are making to you, if you use them. Alter your perception (making you hallucinate things), and making you drug dependent (over time, or even immediately). But saying that the drug helped you to develop something good (other than realizing that drugs are bad, and you stop using them) is crazy.

At least this is what I currently think. I have not used any drugs so far, and I will not use drugs in the future either.
