Essay: Atheists and agnostics, I am going shopping today wearing two masks, a face shield and swim goggles. Put that in your conservative, fundamentalist, Christianity is a death cult pipe and smoke it!
RationalWiki is a politically left of center wiki whose editors are mainly atheists/agnostics.
Below is a message to a British, agnostic editor of RationalWiki who goes by the moniker Mercian.
Mercian, I am going shopping today wearing two masks and a face shield (see: SARS-CoV-2 Infection Among Community Health Workers in India Before and After Use of Face Shields - JAMA and SARS-CoV-2: eye protection might be the missing key, The Lancet, May 1, 2021). Put that in your conservative, fundamentalist Christianity is a death cult pipe and smoke it!
By the way, have you read these articles at Conservapedia: Atheism and medicine, atheist hospitals, and Christianity and hospitals?
Next, yesterday, I received the superior Pfizer-BioNTech Covid-19 vaccine rather than the inferior AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine. This is the same vaccine that Israel has employed with great success (Jews, who are God's chosen people and have a great many creationists in their population, are the winners of many Nobel prizes). So it's not surprising they have done far better than many countries as far as the coronavirus pandemic - unlike godless Britain that produced Richard Dawkins and Charles Darwin.
Pfizer is an American-based company. America has the highest rate of biblical creationism in the developed world. BioNTech is a German company and Germany is the fountainhead of the Protestant Reformation and well-known for its Germanic efficiency and technical/engineering/scientific prowess.
Britain is the fountainhead of Darwinism. If Astrozeneca wasn't a British-Swiss company, no doubt their vaccine wouldn't have worked at all. After all, Switzerland has one of the highest rates of creationism in its population compared to other European countries and much to the dismay of British evolutionists, its roads are far superior! See: The rich Swiss and Americans are a slap in the face to Darwinists. Yodel-lay-he-who! God bless America! and United Kingdom's road repair crisis
Israel, which has a large creationist population is doing an excellent job of handling the coronavirus pandemic. On the other hand, Britain which has a lot of irreligious/nonreligious people and is the fountainhead of Darwinism, is still struggling with the coronavirus pandemic.

Covid-19: Double masking combined with a face shield vs. merely using one mask
Below is data/studies regarding the effectiveness of masks, double masking and wearing a mask as well as a face shield.
I realize that science is based on replicating studies, but I will share a Stanford University anti-masking study even though I disagree with its findings:
|“|| The data suggest that both medical and non-medical facemasks are ineffective of viral and infectious disease such as SARS-CoV-2 and COVID -19...
According to the current knowledge, the virus SARS-CoV-2 has a diameter of 60 nm to 140 nm [nanometers (billionth of a meter)] , , while medical and non-medical facemasks’ thread diameter ranges from 55 µm to 440 µm [micrometers (one millionth of a meter), which is more than 1000 times larger. Due to the difference in sizes between SARS-CoV-2 diameter and facemasks thread diameter (the virus is 1000 times smaller), SARS-CoV-2 can easily pass through any facemask."
The science website Nature.com:
|“|| What does this imply for the ability of masks to impede COVID-19 transmission? The virus itself is only about 0.1 µm in diameter. But because viruses don’t leave the body on their own, a mask doesn’t need to block particles that small to be effective. More relevant are the pathogen-transporting droplets and aerosols, which range from about 0.2 µm to hundreds of micrometres across. (An average human hair has a diameter of about 80 µm.) The majority are 1–10 µm in diameter and can linger in the air a long time, says Jose-Luis Jimenez, an environmental chemist at the University of Colorado Boulder. “That is where the action is.”
In a review of observational studies, an international research team estimates that surgical and comparable cloth masks are 67% effective in protecting the wearer."
Healthline.com: "Researchers found that when a cough was simulated, the double mask blocked 85.4 percent of the aerosol particles. This is compared to 51.4 percent and 56.1 percent for the cloth and surgical mask, respectively."
Double masking and wearing a face shield is the way to go. Please see: SARS-CoV-2 Infection Among Community Health Workers in India Before and After Use of Face Shields
As far as shopping, I have been double masking and wearing a face shield for some time now.
Update: User: Conservative now wears 2 masks, a face shield and swim goggles while most RationalWikians just wear a mask. Ergo, User: Conservative loves science more!
User: Conservative wears 2 masks and a face shield while most RationalWikians just wear a mask. Ergo, User: Conservative loves science more! (RationalWikians are a stubborn lot, so I will repeat the message once more: User: Conservative wears 2 masks and a face shield while most RationalWikians just wear a mask. Ergo, User: Conservative loves science more!).
The ultimate protection from Covid outside of wearing a hazmat suit like Vladimer Putin in a Russian hospital: Two masks, a face shield, swim goggles and full vaccination
Infection Control Today: "Wearing a surgical mask along with a face shield affords health care professionals only statistically insignificant better protection against aerosolized particles than wearing a surgical mask alone, according a study in the American Journal of Infection Control (AJIC)"
Wayne State University, School of Medicine News:
|“|| Studies conducted by Wayne State University School of Medicine physician-researchers indicate that the use of plastic face shields with surgical masks provides the best protection against COVID-19 infection, but combining the two made little difference over the use of masks alone...
“This simulation indicates that surgical masks worn by all are more likely to provide significant protection to uninfected participants in indoor conversations,” Dr. Chopra said. “The role of the face shields in preventing transmission is not supported, and if transmission via the eyes is felt to be a significant factor, such as with health care workers and dentists and dental technicians, goggles might provide better protection than a face shield.”
Starting today, if I go shopping, I am wearing two masks, a face shield and swim goggles!
As you can see, truly macho government officials wear hazmat suits to protect themselves from coronavirus infections: Putin dons hazmat suit, as Russia admits virus numbers likely far higher. Wimpy Joe Biden merely wears a big, black mask. Frail Joe Biden couldn't carry the extra weight of wearing a hazmat suit nor could he remember how to take it off!
And now for the powerful knockout blows!
It was godless, Chinese, atheist, communists who caused the Covid-19 pandemic - not the more godly Taiwanese Chinese! See: Atheism and the coronavirus pandemic and Atheism and communism and China and atheism
Floridians, who are led by the Republican Ron DeSantis, have a lower death rate per 100,000 people due to Covid-19 than the more godless, and liberal New Yorkers. Oh godless leftists, feel the sting!
Why does the president of the Philippines Rodrigo Duterte require Philippine citizens to wear a mask and a face shield and the wimpy Anthony Fauci not stress wearing a mask and a face shield?

More salt in the gaping wound: Charles Darwin often had overwhelming thoughts the world was designed
Charles Darwin wrote in his private notebooks that he was a materialist, which is a type of atheist. In his autobiography, Charles Darwin wrote about the diminishment of his religious faith and Darwin stated that he was an agnostic. Darwin's worldview is best described as agnosticism/weak atheism (see: religious views of Charles Darwin) 
The Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy states:
|“|| In 1885, the Duke of Argyll recounted a conversation he had had with Charles Darwin the year before Darwin's death:
In the course of that conversation I said to Mr. Darwin, with reference to some of his own remarkable works on the Fertilization of Orchids, and upon The Earthworms, and various other observations he made of the wonderful contrivances for certain purposes in nature — I said it was impossible to look at these without seeing that they were the effect and the expression of Mind. I shall never forget Mr. Darwin's answer. He looked at me very hard and said, “Well, that often comes over me with overwhelming force; but at other times,” and he shook his head vaguely, adding, “it seems to go away. ”(Argyll 1885, 244)
A quick and gentle reminder
Once again, I will remind all atheists/agnostics that it is not due to my debating prowess that I so easily and effortlessly win all my debates with atheists/agnostics, it is due to the utter weakness of the atheist worldview.
On behalf of all Christendom, I hereby declare victory of over all atheists/agnostics - especially the smug British ones who think they sound smarter with their British accents!
To: Mercian, an addendum
As noted above, besides wearing two masks, I wear a face shield when shopping. Perhaps the reason why I wear a face shield and you likely don't, is that I understand science better than you ever will!
