Do Vaccines Cause Autism? Correlation vs. Causation

When we make risky decisions about our health, it's always good to be in possession of all the facts, to let our brains, and not our hearts, make the decision. Your child is thousands of times more likely to die from a preventable disease you didn't vaccinate them against than to develop autism from a vaccine you did give them. The case for autism and vaccines is solely based on weak correlations and emotional responses.

Very good videos and very good points made, but I'm not expecting anybody's mind to be changed by those silly little things like facts and logic. People just don't work that way; they're dumb.

I wish Galen were wrong, but I have tried to reason with these people that believe autism is caused by vaccines. They are ruled by their emotions and accept only the science that supports their claims, which is usually pseudoscience or falsified science (Wakefield). And then they dismiss the massive amount of science that shows no link as a conspiracy of "Big Pharma".
