Editorial Note: Doug confirmed that he still broadly holds these views of AIDS in 2014, in a comment on his blog, stating, “I haven’t changed my mind on the basic issues. So yes, you can cite anything I have written as representative of my views.” He more recently confirmed them in 2018, in a blog post stating, “Tim, I have not yet been persuaded that Duesberg was wrong.”
