Are anti-vaccine people conspiracy theorists generally? - page 32

I have an old friend from years ago who I now keep in touch with on Facebook. Her posts are fascinating in the amazing variety of conspiracy theories, some outrageous, some maybe partially true.... Read More

    No, that sounds like something that would make my stomach fly, not prevent it.

    I am officially switching sides in this thread, and am now rooting for Kooky.

    This thread is a microcosm of our current political reality. On the one side, we have things like objective truth, facts, science, and logic. On the other side we have Kooky.

    The one side has always believed that objective truth, facts, science, and logic will win out, and continue to use that strategy. And, the other side is, well, Kooky. It is like having a debate with somebody who speaks a different language. And, Kooky isn't going to change, and there is no particular reason Kooky needs to win the debate.

    Kooky, you have an impressive ability to engage people. My prediction is that you will be able to continue until it generates enough hostility that somebody violates TOS, and this thread gets closed.

    In the mean time, I am on the sidelines rooting for you. I do reserve the right to come back in if there is any reasonable discussion.
    Actually I am pretty much done here. I don't know if you're joking and making fun of me or if you're for real, so whatever. I guess it's the former since you call me illogical, unscientific, etc. Enjoy your joking at my expense. I don't expect much else here when I hold the minority view. There is a lot of immaturity and disrespect, rudeness, cliquishness on AN. Try to play nicely, kids, if you can. It's a shame that professional nurses (yes, I am one) can't be kinder and more mature than what is often seen here.

    No, I have no particular need to win. And I don't think I especially engage anyone. People are just mad, not really interested in what I think or say, don't you think?

    This topic is like abortion and sexuality issues, and the modern, non born again Christian view of them. People have strong views and none of us is likely to change them much any time soon.

    What exactly do you mean by rooting? What are you rooting for? Why this switch of sides?

    We all need to try to control ourselves and not let hostility violates TOS. Just stop replying to the thread and it will die.

    Anyway, peace.

    Vaccines have nothing to do with abortion and sexuality issues. Vaccines are very clear cut. You either believe in the science or you don't. You obviously don't believe in the science, so that makes most nurses question what kind of nursing professional you are.

    We have answered your questions over and over and over again. Unless you live in a plastic bubble you will come in contact with the flu through other people and even just the surfaces around you. With a 40-60% flu vaccine efficacy rate it is easy to see how people get the flu still after having the flu vaccine, but even though they get the flu after the vaccine the flu extent is usually shorter and less severe.

    You don't want to be educated. You want someone to confirm your biases. I'm not that person.

    Anyone that chooses not to vaccinate is a danger to everyone and distance hardly matters. When you can go from one end of the US to the other in a few hours distance is nearly meaningless.
    So about those holey, coin-holding pockets - how many coins drop out in your example?

    I am not planning on traveling anywhere so breathe easy.

    Of course, the vaxxed for whom the vaccine is ineffective could cross your path, however short or mild their cases of flu.

    The Duggars are free to live as they please, believe as they please in our beloved free country. They don't need anyone else's approval to live as they see fit.

    I don't how many coins did fall out?. It was an example to try to make you understand herd immunity, obviously it didn't work.

    If you are working as a nurse and/or not living in plastic bubble then you are still a danger to everyone around you if decide to not be vaccinated.

    The whole reason for herd immunity is to protect the population as a whole, which would mean that the flu would still have little chance of spreading even if someone didn't become immune to the flu from the flu vaccine.

    The last I heard it was still illegal to molest children and cover it up.
