There is no such thing as a contagious disease (2)
Debate Rounds (5)
I would first like to know what definition the instigator is putting forward to view "contagious diseases" are being non existant. Please bring to light what kind of evidence you have to make such a claim
Given the mentioned definition, here is a list of contagious diseases
The concept that disease is spread from person to person is a total nonsense. This concept was developed by the Victorian Era during the Great Plagues and other smaller epidemics. In the old days, water was supplied by a well, which was situated in the middle of the village. This is still the situation in Africa. (Ebola). every now and then an animal would fall into the well and cause the water to become poisonous. People who lived nearest to the well would start to get sick first. The, others who lived further away from the well would gradually become sick. Thus, was born the concept of the contagious disease by some bureaucrat who worked out that disease spreads from a central point and slowly spreads from person to person.

Secondly the reason we cannot cure the "common flu" also known as influenza, is due to the evolution of influenza. it undergoes either an antigenetic shift, or a genetic/antigentic drift. technically each flu do get cured. Nonetheless, this does not change the fact that influenza is a contagious disease.
Thirdly, the fact that we cannot "cure" these diseases, does not provide any solid ground to completely dismiss the existence of contagious diseases. The issue with the instigator seems to be with the lack of knowledge of the definition.
Awakening Our Self-Healing Body
"Viruses" Are Not Micro-organisms
Even though medical authorities mistakenly attribute to this dead cellular debris the powers of life and malevolence, microbiologists acknowledge that viruses are dead bits of DNA in a protein-lipid membrane coat, although FAILING TO REALIZE ITS SOURCE. As such, genomes are control mechanisms but not micro-organisms as the medical establishment would have us believe, since these so-called "viruses" are merely lifeless fragments of mitochondrial generic debris. Because of this, VIRUSES CANNOT CAUSE DISEASE unless they accumulate as filth and pollute our cells, tissues and circulation upon cellular death.
Viruses, then, are dead genomes from disintegrated cells whose cellular membrane is not completely broken down by cellular lysosomes.
Genomes have no characteristics of life whatsoever, and are merely bits of nucleic acid material normally recycled through phagocytosis or excreted as waste. Photos of alleged viruses "injecting themselves" into a cell actually show the cell literally engulfing the "virus" or proteinaceous debris. A dent, called invaginarion, then forms and the organic matter is surrounded by cellular substance which closes off, forming an impromptu stomach, and the "virus" disappears. The stomach then fills with powerful lysosome enzymes which digest the organic material, breaking it down into ammo acids and fatty acids for recycling or elimination. This process is a normal feature of cell physiology called phagocytosis (literally, cell-eating)" the routine process of cellular ingestion and enzymatic digestion of bacteria, dead tissue debris and other errant cells. Viruses are merely inert organic material totally devoid of all life qualities and are never seen to act. Photographs purporting to show viruses in action are outright frauds: what is actually shown is an ordinary physiological process of phagocytosis which occurs countless times daily within the body.
Remember, according to medical texts on virology and microbiology, viruses have the following un-lifelike characteristics:
1) Viruses have no metabolism"they cannot process food-stuffs or nutriment and they have no energy formation. They are only a template, or pattern of information, as are all genomes.
2) Viruses have no faculties for action of any kind"no nervous system, no sensory apparatus, and no intelligence that may coordinate movement or "bodily invasion" of any kind.
3) Viruses cannot replicate themselves"they supposedly depend entirely upon "obligate reproduction""meaning, reproduction by a host organism, something totally unheard of in all biology.
Please make sure that you address correctly the definition itself, rather than bring in a bundle of information that has no relevance whatsoever in this conversation.
