I was talking with my neighbor on Sunday evening. We talked some about homeschooling, which led to the subject of that 4th grade "science quiz". Our conversation rapidly descended to ridiculous levels.  He's a young earth creationist messianic Jew but is also a pretty good guy, in general. I should have really known better, but the cheap white wine kept it going long after there was no real reason to do so. But we all had fun and no hard feelings.

/the scientific method is bunk
//controlled experiments in a lab are not science

 We went into a camp to inoculate some children. We left the camp after we had inoculated the children for polio, and this old man came running after us and he was crying. He couldn't see. We went back there, and they had come and hacked off every inoculated arm. There they were in a pile. A pile of little arms. And I remember... I... I... I cried, I wept like some grandmother.

abb3w: So, they've been dragged kicking and screaming all the way to the 19th century? That seems considerable progress.


To be fair, the polio vaccine was found in the 1950s and became readily available in the late 1950s/early 1960s. So, at least on this matter, they are a mere half century behind.

One of my favorite cousins (on just about any other matter) is also an anti-vaxer. I am not sure why because, on there matters, she is not a stupid woman. I have sent her articles on other reasons, more logical reasons, for the rise in autism diagnoses, but she remains staunch in her belief that vaccines are the key. It makes me very sad.

FTA: "Opposition to the vaccination programme has been driven by conservative clerics who claim it is a plot to sterilise Muslim children, and Taliban commanders who fear it is being used to gather intelligence in their strongholds. "


Thanks..guess i should have read the whole article..

"The Taliban has ended its war on polio vaccination workers and admitted immunisation is the only way to protect children from the disease, its leadership said in a statement issued today. "

...The statement went on, "...Sorry about that whole killing innocent women and 16 year-old girls thing.  Our bad."
