I know this isn't an Atheist thing per se... but if it's worth anything Katrina, my cousin, is a Young Earther.
Reading over it again, it has echos of the same ignoring of accurate information that theists in general seem to have.
Yet another reflection of scientific illiteracy- something I find commonly associated with theists.
Its an interesting debate. I tend to side with the vaccinations, and when/if I have children, they will be getting their vaccines. I know that for some parents it can be a really touchy subject....but I also think there is a sort of mania surrounding it that scares people into believing there are harmful effects of vaccines, and of course, parents only want to do what is best for their children. Doing or believing anything without proper research is always an unwise thing to do.
I have done the research, these people are crazy and dangerous. http://neverthoughttoquestionwhy.wordpress.com/2011/11/08/anti-vacc...
Bryan .. those are the Pox Parties I mention in the post..
ya if they are so far gone they will deliberately put their own child in that much danger than it's pretty clear what their credibility is.
You can't fix stupid. Get your kids vaccinated, save their life or at least a lot of pain and suffering.
Part of me kind of understands where they come from. I live in the UK, and our vaccination system seems a lot less harsh than the American system - my American fiancé told me that he got very ill as a young child because his system was overloaded with vaccines in a short period of time, whereas ours are spread out over the first 5 years, and then they introduce the HPV vaccine, for girls only, when they reach around 14 or 15, just before they become sexually active.But I agree with Tim Palmer, and everyone else here, this is ridiculous, the tiny chance of harm that may be caused by receiving the vaccines is nothing compared to the pain they will go through if they get the full blown disease. I swear they should just make vaccines compulsory, and screw the crazies that obviously cannot see what is best for their children.We live in developed countries where we have access to this, why don't we take advantage of it?!
Hannah.. mind if I ask, how many shots he got such that he got sick? I ask because here in the U.S, by 15 months a child is getting 9 vaccines via 3 shots .. MMR in one, Influenza in another and the rest in a 3rd during one visit.
0 - 6 year Vaccination schedule
To be perfectly honest, I don't know. He said that he had a lot, and when I asked how many, he mumbled a vague number and said I'd have to ask his mum, and then went back to how God obviously had a plan for him and kept him alive, or something like that. I think he's secretly against vaccination.Thanks for the schedule, it doesn't look too different to ours in the UK at all =)
