Why Do The Believe That? Because They’re Irrational

Growing up unvaccinated: A healthy lifestyle couldn’t prevent many childhood illnesses.

I find myself wondering about the claim that complications from childhood illnesses are extremely rare but that “vaccine injuries” are rampant.

If this is the case, I struggle to understand why I know far more people who have experienced complications from preventable childhood illnesses than I have ever met with complications from vaccines. I have friends who became deaf from measles.

I have a partially sighted friend who contracted rubella in the womb. My ex got pneumonia from chickenpox. A friend’s brother died from meningitis.

The claim that these vaccines are massively dangerous is a religious assertion, and not based on any rational evidence whatsoever.

And like most religions, there is generally a death toll involved in accepting demonstrable falsehoods as truth. Certainly reality tends to impose penalties on those who ignore it.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
