"Hindrances to scientific progress and the failings of HIV/AIDS theory"
Mainstream consensus always exerts a cautionary influence on new developments that question an established theory. Sometimes hypotheses once rejected become accepted later on because of the availability of new techniques and new facts. At other times, a theory becomes burdensome because of the accumulation of facts that the theory cannot accommodate, and that theory is eventually replaced in a Kuhnian "scientific revolution". HIV/AIDS theory has generated such a mass of anomalous observations that HIV/AIDS theory seems doomed: it is plain that "HIV" is not a sexually transmitted infection, or indeed any sort of infection, and that it is not correlated with the incidence of AIDS.
