We’ve proved it’s safe. Over and over in millions of children. So in this case, Occam’s Razor dictates that the most likely explanation is the temporal one between receiving a vaccine and the early signs of autism.

I can’t possibly comment because I don’t know the details of your son’s particular case. But I do know that this issue has been studied EXTENSIVELY- and the results of massive studies are conclusive: Vaccines don’t cause autism.

I would never infer that. But I do know that analysis of literally millions of kids shows that vaccines don’t cause autism. There is no link. That’s the truth.

Almost certainly a Coincidence, unfortunately. Which is sad, but that’s the most likely explanation because we know vaccines don’t cause autism.

You are part of an organization that doesn’t think HIV causes AIDS, so perhaps it’s understandable that your immunology is a bit weak...

Maybe. But when we actually test homeopathy, it is no better than placebo, I’m afraid.

Your unvaccinated children post a very real to all other children they come into contact with, ESPECIALLY babies too young to receive their shots, and the immunocompromised. This is why it’s important for everyone to vaccinate.

"Resilience training" is HR's psychobabble excuse for bullying you. I recall a circular from HR asking you to report bullying. I reported HR

Yup. Who needs an army? Especially one as impotent as ours. Spend the money on important stuff.

So if an elderly gent approaches you, you surround him, get in his face, and drown him out? As for Kavanaugh, well, if you think his behaviour was acceptable, then I dunno 🤷‍♂️

So Justice Kavanaugh is suddenly innocent now? And the behaviour of the MAGA kids was acceptable? The Kool-Aid is strong today...

People are ‘sickos’ for believing someone when they claim they were racially assaulted? In a country where racial assault is common? 🙄🙄🙄

Disappointing misinformation from a colleague. Getting wild-Type measles is immunosuppressive, and can have serious long-term effects (SSPE). And there is no ‘trade-off’: vaccination is safer than getting a disease.
