Lunatic Christian Says “Silver” Kills the Virus

March 13, 2020

There’s this absolute lunatic Christian named the JIM Baker, he’s a televangelist. He was previously 
convicted of actual fraud served time in prison, he’s known for selling those long­term food buckets Christian foods storages I call it you can get a 1000 servings of dehydrated mash potatoes for the 
apocalypse, that sort of thing. He has now been ordered by the New York Attorney General to stop selling a fake virus cure. He’s been touting this thing called Silver solution and he brought on a 
guest Sheryl Selman who’s about as much of a lunatic is Jim Baker. Check out the conversation they had.

We’re going to have to really break this down piece by piece because it’s a clinic and disinformation and pseudo­science and it’s dangerous. pseudo­science at that. Let’s get into CLIP number one.
God gave us this product. Yeah, I believe, yeah, how many you did? We eat as gave this to us about 10­12 years ago, a with… And we have it at our home, we have it in case we… So this is already 
what Ed okay, he believes God gave them the product of silver solution, why wouldn’t God just prevent the conditions that silver solution, supposedly, treats in cures? Why go through the trouble? 
God’s a busy guy or gal, if they exist, why would God first create all sorts of conditions and that require treatment, then create silver solution to cure them?
It’s much simpler just don’t require the silver solution by not creating the conditions that supposedly Jim Baker says, it treats. It’s already bonkers. Let’s continue, we use it all the time. I have this and I 
mean I don’t think I’d have made it without silver, it for my throat and all that absolutely is. I’ve had this and this is amazing.
We want our… So, so would you recommend… Is a doctor, people to have silver in their house for everyone? You never wanna be without silver okay, so now he goes to his doctor doctor. Do we 
want silver? Oh yes, Jim. We want silver we need silver cereal. Selman. The doctor is what’s called an end, that’s a naturopathic doctor, he’s not a medical doctor. Now, I’m not interested in debating 
the merits of naturopathy, with you here, but the amount of pseudo­science that naturopathy, is just filled up with and perpetuates is stunning. And he’s being dishonest by saying, Doctor, because a 
normal person is going to say they’re talking about curing illness and he’s referring to her as doctor she must have some kind of actual medical credentials. No, we’re talking about a natural path here. 
Let’s keep going here. Where they start getting into viruses listen very carefully to the language that they use.
I have so many reasons never. This is a state of the year, state and it was…
Oh, this is a staple for your family. And we can talk more about it, maybe we have more time at got time. All I can say is that it has 
been proven by the government that it has the ability to kill every passage it has ever been tested on including SARS and HIV proven by the government that it has the ability to kill every pathogen it 
has ever been tested on including SARS and HIV proven by the government well proven by which government. What do you mean by proven? What do you mean? It kills pathogens. There are lots of
so­called pathogens that you can put in a petri dish where they are relatively benign and you can take many substances you can dump leech on to it, you as you can probably find pathogens that 
Gatorade will kill in a petri dish if you leave it in there for hours. But it’s meaningless commentary unless you actually know the details of what they’re suggesting if they aren’t total lies which 
obviously they are, and then now they get to what is really the key part, this influence that is now circling the gold you’re saying that silver solution would be effective?
Well, let’s say it hasn’t been tested on this strain of the corona virus but it’s been tested on other strains of the corona virus and has been able to eliminate it, within 12 hours.

Yeah, totally mandated. kills it into a deactivates it, yeah. Oh, so… Alright, so it hasn’t been tested on this strain of the virus. Oh, I see, “well tell me more well it has eliminated other strains of corona
virus. No, well actually, it has killed other strange… No, it has the activated other strings get off the TV. This is when you know that this is BS. It killed the virus, it eliminated it, it deactivated it.
This is meaningless dangerous drive that can potentially kill people, and then they do their normal thing which is, they throw in, “Oh it also boosts your immune system. Any time you hear that that’s

immune system, as well as an ability to de­activate these viruses. That’s so okay. Oh, so okay, so you killed the virus with the silver and then that same silver will boost your immune system which 
deactivates the virus. This, I should be criminal.
Now, if you’ve not heard about the silver stuff, before, there’s this whole world of what’s called colloidal silver.
And not only does colloidal silver. Not do any of the things they say It doesn’t treat any disease, it doesn’t treat any symptom it can actually be dangerous when you take colloidal silver, it can cause

    The worst thing you can possibly do right now is to lie about the virus (especially if you're trying to profit off of it with a "solution" that has zero proof), if ever there was a case for arresting a fraud it's this. It's sickening they'd attempt to do this, they are pure evil.

    The so-called 'doctor' talks about it cleaning out the dead viruses as a way to explain why people will still get ill even when they take this. "It 'boosts' your immune system to clean out the dead virus" is simply a way to explain away the coronavirus symptoms when they inevitably occur. In fact, if users of this snake oil experience coronavirus symptoms, they will be tricked into believing it's working as intended and possibly not go to hospital. This is pure evil. These people, on this infomercial, are looking into the camera knowing exactly what they're selling. We viewers are staring directly at evil incarnate.

    I can see where the idea comes from. Silver as a metal, is naturally antiseptic, or antibacterial, and so is copper. It may even kill some kinds of virus. But it only helps as door furniture or belt buckles, (the traditional nurses buckle is silver, for example, ) but in solution its useless, unless you want to clean some silver door handles.

  • Reply Eduardo Arana March 13, 2020 at 8:05 am

    Hilarious, considering that viruses are debatably not “living” organisms, so you can’t kill it. Can’t kill something that isn’t considered alive. I learned this in high school, did the “doctor” pass on this lecture?

    Silver actually does have some proven effects upon some bacteria. Notice I am not defending the idiots trying to sell their snake oil. For years small silver balls have been added to the tank water to cut down on fungus on fish eggs. Copper also is used to kill some pathogens particularly in aquaria. I guess the sellers of this patent nostrum are using factual information as a springboard for their panacea.

  • Reply Phillip Eldridge-Smith March 13, 2020 at 8:30 am

    It’s quite amazing that ‘the government’ hasn’t tested silver out on C19 yet, seeing as they already proved its usage against pathogens…

    David, you should do debunk videos. Bakker is a POS. He’s as much a charlatan and snake oil salesman as any of the evangelical nut jobs from the states. It’s good to live in a mostly secular society – sure there are still morons, but at least they aren’t TV pastors.

They had a devoted television following of millions among Pentecostal and sundry other Christians.Then there came to light a range of damning legal and ethical embarrassments, and the Bakkers shuffled off our small screens, and Jim off to jail. Really not until the coming of Trump was there again anything quite so bizarre. Shows how far we've progressed, doesn't it.

    Athiest David Parkman believes his 21-year-old boy "wisdom" to be above the wisdom of the Creator. We're not in heaven. God made it so that we all had to go through a testing phase, because with the free will that God gave us, we can have morality defects. One of these defects is athiest faithlessness in God, or God denial. So God provide those opportunities for those with defective morality of faithlessness to develop hope and faith in God amidst the despair and suffering he creates. The suffering affects everyone almost indiscriminately, so that the reality of God isn't all that obvious, because that would eliminate the need for faith, for believin in what you cannot see. That would be fundamental for the afterlife in Heaven and then it's utterly necessary. Except for babies and young children, they get a free pass if they die. So, after creating chaos and despair, God also creates some magical cures (and false prophets create false promises), so that those who have true faith will make the right guess and survive, possibly then developing faith and securing their place in heaven. Religious logic 101. Something so basic that's even surprising communist athiest apologists would ignore in their fellacious God-denying heretic propagandism.

    It is as if david thinks a virus can grow on a petri dish with only abiotic factors on it.

    Just more proof–not that it's needed–that evangelical movement has never been about faith or Christianity for the leaders of the church. It's been about money from the very beginning. Because of they believed what they've been preaching all this time they wouldn't risk the wrath of the god they claim to worship and contradict the teachings the savior they claim to follow by endangering the lives of their congregations in order to become obscenely wealthy.

    Jim Baker is not a christian! He is a con who calls himself a christian, just like Trump who calls himself very very intelligent, but instead is a very very stupid lunatic and their both criminals.

    An obsolete lie and a ridiculous suggestion that this would help people. However, silver in itself is not a good carrier of viruses and bacterial infections which is why medical instruments used to be made from silver (and church chalices as a matter of interest), but not like this. How can they get away with this? It's also good for killing werewolves but only in bullets!

    Jim Bakker – once a scam artist, always a scam artist. Guessing he’s shilling this concoction at a pretty penny to his susceptible viewers. Thoroughly disgusting.

    This dietary supplement can cause argyria. It consists of tiny silver particles in a liquid. Makers of these products may claim they boost your immune system and can treat cancer, HIV and AIDS, shingles, herpes, and eye problems, but scientific research doesn’t support that.

    The FDA says over-the-counter drugs and supplements containing colloidal silver or silver salts aren’t safe and effective. Silver has no known benefits when swallowed and isn’t essential to the human body. I hope they’re not ingesting it.

    Tuesday morning, a spokesperson with the Missouri Attorney General’s Office told the News-Leader that the office was filing suit against the Jim Bakker Show operation near Branson.

    Spokesman Chris Nuelle said in an email that the goal of the suit was “to stop (Bakker) from selling that Coronavirus ‘cure,’” a product known as "silver solution" that was priced at $80 or more on Bakker's show.

    Documents were filed Monday in Stone County, Nuelle said, with televangelist Jim Bakker and his Morningside Church Productions, Inc. named as defendants.

    Anyone who has bought "Silver Solution" from the Jim Bakker Show should know that it cannot cure or treat coronavirus," Attorney General Eric Schmitt's office said in a news release, which referred to the product as a "fake."

    The suit asserts that Bakker and Morningside are in violation of the Missouri Merchandising Practices Act. It asks for a restraining order and a permanent injunction ordering Bakker to stop selling "silver sol" as a treatment for the coronavirus, dubbed COVID-19, that emerged late last year in China before infecting at least 113,000 people worldwide, according to data collected by Johns Hopkins University.

    On Monday, two federal agencies also warned Bakker that he was violating federal law and should stop selling “silver sol” products that he and a show guest had promoted on the air in February as capable of “eliminating” coronavirus from the human body in a matter of hours.

    Such claims fly in the face of scientific information handed down by public health authorities in Missouri, the federal government and the World Health Organization. At this time, there is no medication to treat coronavirus, but multiple vaccines are in development, a process that could take a year or more
