I have no clear idea why they might be linked, but the links go back more than a decade. Phillip Johnson was a founding member of The Group for the Scientific Reappraisal of the HIV-AIDS Hypothesis, while Wells signed on by 1993. Wells, of course, is (or was) associated with Duesberg, a Berkeley molecular biologist and a primary academic pusher of HIV denial. Interestingly, Johnson (!991) predates Duesberg (1993) as a signer of that group's statement. Tom Bethell signed on in 1993, too.
Dr. G.H. had a post last year on Pandas Thumb on HIV denial, Holocaust denial, and ID.
