The scientific and medical communities readily opted for the retroviral theory and rapidly adopted the belief that the apparent spread of “HIV” represented a global health emergency, with “real, and potentially significant, risks to national, regional, and global security from the pandemic”; and for over three decades have resisted every alternative view. In 2008 Montagnier and Barré-Sinoussi were awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine “for their discovery of human immunodeficiency virus”. On 20th May 2016 the Pasteur Institute tweeted “33 years ago today Françoise Barré-Sinoussi and Luc Montagnier published in the journal Science the discovery of the retrovirus that causes AIDS”.21 However, according to Anders Vahlne, Professor in Clinical Virology, Karolinska Institute, Stockholm, “In reality, in my view there is no evidence whatsoever in this [Montagnier’s 1983] paper that a new human retrovirus has been isolated!” The question arises, does the evidence presented in Montagnier’s 1983 paper prove the existence of HIV? If not, did Montagnier prove its existence in a subsequent paper? Or have other scientists published such evidence?
