Is there any chance that when flu season comes around that covid-19 and the seasonal flu could combine and form something new and more dangerous?

Actually yes, it's one mechanism of viral mutation.

Basically if two different viruses infect the same cell sometimes the RNA from one virus gets accidentally packaged into a second virus and spliced together. The result is that the new virus will have some genes from one virus, and some genes from another virus. It's one of the proposed mechanisms for why the second wave of the Spanish flu was so deadly, it's possible that it had one of these events and essentially reset the immunity of the population.

It's important to know though that this is incredibly rare. If you have millions of infections it still isn't a likely occurrence, but the more infections you have the more likely a dangerous event like this happens, and that's one of the reasons why you want to reduce infections from diseases like covid.

No viruses exist

people can decide what they want to believe, after all its a choice to stay in wonder or to go back under

Correct. Everyone knows it’s demons possessing people. Their lack of faith is what kills them. That and the satanic scientist cult stopped people from using leeches, which is the only true cure.
