Oh, Subby. You got me. Sort of.

At any rate, I doubt if vaccines have anything whatsoever to do with autism. It is more likely to be due to aging fathers, marriages between geeks, and other factors. It is almost assuredly congenital but not due to exposure to mercury compounds or vaccines. Some part of it is hereditary and random, but as the upper middle class men no longer marry secretaries or nurses but other doctors, lawyers, tech geeks, and rich people, the genes have a much higher risk of expression and crazy-ass parenting, electronics and sterile environments are triggering these genes or creating similar behaviour.

People don't have any historical sense, so they don't think of the large amount of class mixing that occurred before the Conservatives pitched us back into the Robber Baron or Gilded Age. Even the Conservatives never dreamt that men would be allowed to marry professionals and successful business partners.

Doctor-Doctor marriages are more dangerous than gay marriages. The professions are inbreeding at a tremendous rate, and that is a bad thing for everything except the concentration of wealth, income, power, education, intelligence and hereditary disease.

Look at the Jews--nothing wrong with them per se but the Ashkenazi Jews were exposed to dangerous levels of intelligence, neuroticism, and autism before there were words for such things. The Ashkenazi Jews had to invent words for all those things because they were the first people exposed to them by birth and by their professional practices as doctors, psychologists, psychiatrist, lawyers, and so forth. Most of pre-Enlightenment Europe was pretty dumb.

Especially the WASPS. The name of the Picts means "tattoed people". Britannia comes from the Greek pretannike, which also means "painted people". Until the Jews came along, the British were dying their bodies blue and running around nekkid because they didn't want their tats covered up.

Some mild inbreeding helps to concentrate both good and bad genes and the bad genes run themselves out of town. But the cost is terrible for many families. When the English lifted a centuries long ban on the Jews, the Englightenment and the Industrial and Scientific Revolutions happened. Because the smart people were no longer lyinng around moaning and groaning because the savages had pulled their gold teeth out and smashed their eye glasses.

It's not a coincidence. Apart from being Ashkenazi, eye glasses are about the only thing that correlates with intelligence consistently and sufficiently to be scienifically significant. Nobody has explained the Asians yet, but then the Japanese are a bit weird. Presumably thousands of years of exam taking have made half of Asia near-sighted and bookish, just like the Ashkenazi. Genetics and Environment are powerful alone, but in combination they are unstoppable. Just look at the rack on the extinct Irish Elk. Of course sexual selection was involved in that case, but that is another dangerous force that can lead to success and extinction.

Yup. Sexual selection for brains is very dangerous. All in all, it is not a good idea to breed for intelligence. Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. pointed out that big giant human brains are not an advantage, they are a handicap. He was one of the few.

I know two things that aren't causing autism:  smoking and tats. Because they are both things stupid people like to do in excess. You don't need big brains to kill you. Dumbth will do the job just as well.

CNN: "...The study found nearly half of children with an autism spectrum disorder have average or above-average intellectual ability -- an IQ above 85 -- compared with one-third of children a decade ago...."

Wait, what?  I thought an average IQ was around 100. Or are they just talking about CNN's viewers and staff?

hardinparamedic: Loreweaver: Stop diluting the definition of Autism to include brats with self-entitled helicopter parents!

Humor us and define Autism.

As a bonus, which of the diagnostic criteria of the DSM-V for autism and social development disorders do you disagree with, and why?


The part where kids outside of his family are considered autistic as well.

On the issue of "diagnosing" Autism Spectrum Disorder:

A note to all medical personnel and psychiatric quacks:
Kids who are merely socially awkward, or have never been properly disciplined by their parents, ARE NOT AUTISTIC, YOU FREAKING RETARDS!

Stop diluting the definition of Autism to include brats with self-entitled helicopter parents!

Sincerely,
Uncle of an Autistic child

Shazam999: CSB:

My sister told me about her friends that had a child they were convinced was mildly autistic.  He'd get upset at busy malls, get mad at meals, and get so upset he'd knock his head on the floor.  I told her that he wasn't autistic, he was normal and their parents needed to discipline the child.  Turns out they started to discipline him and lo and behold, he acted better.


People often look to an external locus of control to explain why they suck ass at stuff.

Diogenes: raerae1980: hardinparamedic: I've always said this country needs a few good epidemics of vaccine preventable disease, and thousands of dead and crippled people as a result of it before people stop listening to outright idiots who got their medical degrees at the University of Google.

That said, there is zero evidence that autism is caused by vaccination or a vaccine component, out of almost twenty five years of intense studies on the matter.

Also, bravo, submitter. You'll get a few bites.

Did I hear correctly when I heard that autism begins in the womb, which would be before vaccinations begins?

Hey now.  No dodging your Boobies.  You swallowed that hook ;-)


Eh, I've swallowed worst.

NO NO NO NO NO SUBMITTER. That is COMPLETELY incorrect.

1 in 65 children who get vaccinated have autism.

The rest obviously weren't vaccinated in the first place so obviously that other 1 in 3 won't have autism.
