[Fake NewAlert] The Trending Write-up by Bill Gates is Fake

Bill Gates寫的?還是Bill Liu寫的? 左圖:在WhatsApp流傳聲稱是Bill Gates的文章,更加有太陽報加持,令事件更為「真實」。 其實,太陽報已經發現相關的文章不是Bill Gates所寫,並且把文章從網站刪除。請各位不要再傳那個中文翻譯版本了。 還是那一句,任何沒有來源的資訊,請小心處理。 Credits: Kauyim Media, local fact checkers 求驗傳媒 謠言全文 (Scoll down English Version) 比爾蓋茨: 新冠病毒是一次「偉大的糾錯」 今天英國《太陽報》 刊登了比爾蓋茨的公開信,這封信得到極大關注,得到很多人轉發,人們稱贊比爾蓋茨是真正的智者,並有人第一時間就把他的公開信翻譯成中文。下面是比爾蓋茨的信。 我堅信發生的每一件事後面都有一個精神層面的目的,無論我們認為是好還是壞。 當我沈思時,我想與大家分享我的心得,新冠病毒究竟對我們做了些什麼。 1) 病毒提醒我們,人都是平等的,無論我們的文化、宗教、職業、經濟狀況,或是一個人有多麼出名。在病毒眼中我們都是平等的,也許我們也應該平等對待他人。如果你不相信我的話,那就去問湯姆·漢克斯。 2) 病毒提醒我們,我們的命運都是聯在一起的,影響一個人的事情同時也會影響另一個人。病毒也提醒我們,我們建立的虛假國境線毫無價值,因為病毒並不需要護照。病毒還提醒我們,雖然我們暫時受到壓迫,世界上還有人一生都受到壓迫。 3) 病毒提醒我們,健康多麼珍貴。而我們卻忽視健康,吃垃圾食品,喝被各種化學品污染的水,如果我們不照顧自己,我們當然就會生病。 4) 病毒提醒我們,生命苦短,什麼是我們應該做的最重要的事情,特別是那些已經生病的老年人。人生在世的目的不是買一卷卷的廁紙。 5) 病毒提醒我們,我們的社會已經變得物質至上,當我們遇到困難時,我們才想起我們的基本需求是食物、飲水和藥品,而不是並沒有什麼價值的奢侈品。 6) 病毒提醒我們,家庭是何等重要,但我們卻忽視了這一點。病毒強迫我們回到我們的房子里,所以我們可以把房子建成家庭,並建立牢固的家庭紐帶。 7) 病毒提醒我們,我們真正的工作並不是我們打的那份工,我們固然需要打工,然而上帝創造我們的目的並不是讓我們打工。我們真正的工作是互相照顧、互相保護、互助互利。 😎 病毒提醒我們,我們不能妄自尊大。病毒還提醒我們,無論你覺得自己多偉大,也無論別人覺得你多麼偉大,一個小小的病毒就能讓整個世界停擺。 9) 病毒提醒我們,自由掌握在我們自己手中。我們可以選擇合作互助、分享、付出、互相支持,或者我們也可以選擇自私、囤積和自顧自。只有在困難的時候才能看出一個人的真面目。 10) 病毒提醒我們,我們既可以耐心,也可以恐慌。我們既可以理解這種情況在歷史上已經發生過多次,但最後都過去了,我們也可以恐慌,以為世界末日到了,結果傷害了我們自己。 11) 病毒提醒我們,疫情既是結束也是開始。我們現在可以反省和理解,從錯誤里吸取教訓。疫情也可以是一個輪回的開始,而且還會繼續下去,直至我們吸取教訓為止。 12) 病毒提醒我們,我們的地球病了。病毒還提醒我們,我們必須看到森林消失的速度,也必須看到一卷卷廁紙從貨架上消失的速度。我們都病了,因為我們的家庭病了。 13) 病毒提醒我們,困難總會過去,然後就容易了。生活是週期性的,現在只是週期里的一個階段。我們不必恐慌,疫情一定會過去。 14) 許多人認為新冠病毒的疫情是一場災難,但我覺得這是一次「偉大的糾錯」。 Bill […]
