“Woah, Leadsled, you need to stop your attacks. This is obviously a sensitive subject and you don't go attacking a mom who's baby's life has been threatened. People who chose not to vaccinate their children are not just making whimsical decisions that aren't scientifically founded. I personally have done EXTENSIVE research about vaccinations, from both sides. I know many other moms who have done the same, unfortunately, sometimes, after it is too late. My child's pediatrician even confessed that her own son suffered encephalitis immediately after receiving the MMR vaccine, and was completely out of it for several days. Thankfully he recovered, but she was completely devastated. And thank you for unsolicited Latin lesson, but in fact there is a crystal clear correlation. I already know you won't be convinced, and that's fine. But you won't sway my opinion. Conversation over.”

Leadsled on Nov 6, 2013 at 12:58:58

“What attacks? Seriously what on the green hills of earth are you talking about?

Yes they are making precisely whimsical decisions based on absolutely no scientific research. If you have done "extensive" research on this field you'd know that all, literally all, of the so called evidence supporting such claims has been extensively and conclusively been shown to come from faulty methodology, faulty reasoning or straight out fraud. What you are talking about with encephalitis there is something that is known as "informed consent" not "a confession." Also, again, based purely on your statement your doctor also committed the failure of reasoning post-hoc ergo propter hoc.

Moreover, not "unsolicited latin lesson" more "using the words that are used by educated persons to denote the concept I was invoking" but recognizing that the people I am speaking to might not be fully educated on logic I also find it handy to give the literal translation and a fuller expansion on how the concept applies in this instance. That is another way of saying: "What are you talking about, that's what that thing is called."”

“There's nothing inherently wrong with those pictures. In fact, the kid is a pretty decent artist! I think where we should be worried is parents that allow their children to play violent video games all day, watch violence on TV, etc. There is so much garbage on TV these days, and when kids watch it constantly, it's 'monkey see, monkey do' after a while.”

RiSa4567 on Nov 7, 2013 at 01:30:43

“I grew up with a boy who was extremely violent. He had a bad attitude, misbehaved terribly and his typical play involved smashing things. He didn't watch violent tv shows or movies and the most violent game he had was Mortal Combat. And he was only allowed to play any of his video games an hour or two a day and that including sharing the system with his other sibling. He was just a VERY violent child. He totally trashed my mother's favorite vintage lamp one evening when he decided to use it as a target for some sort of high kicks. He realized he was tall enough to hit it with his foot and he went wild on it and trashed it. So.. I don't think video games and tv are the reason kids are violent. Some might just be violent on their own.”

“With all due respect, soy contains high levels of estrogen. Most people are getting mega doses of soy/estrogen by eating the standard American diet (read the labels of all packaged food at the grocery store--it ALL contains soy). You say that the trend to early puberty has been documented since the 1840s, but the numbers have spiked in recent years.”

Just4theHalibut on Nov 6, 2013 at 01:20:12

“I was mostly objecting to what I perceived as your airy assertion that soy is "the reason". Clearly obesity, other estrogen-mimics in plastics and pesticides, and hormones in milk, play important roles.”

“How do you figure that? And clarify which views. I'm specifically talking about her views on vaccines and how they are linked to autism. She has walking proof with her own son. So do countless other parents. Do your research before you speak.”

Leadsled on Nov 5, 2013 at 23:17:19

“Yes, I am talking specifically about that. She has no "walking proof" her son has autism. This is true. Her son was supposedly vaccinated. This is also true. These two facts are entirely unrelated to each other as countless studies have shown. This is also true. There is ZERO link between vaccines and autism. None. She and others like her confuse correllation and causation. They see their kids got vaccinated at a roughly similar age to when they first noticed the kids were abnormal and bang they make the classic logical fallacy of post hoc ergo propter hoc (after therefore because of) reasoning, which is, as I said, a logical fallacy.”

“It's already been determined that the reason is because of all the genetically modified soy in practically every processed food on the shelf. Start reading labels and avoid soy - especially GMO soy (GMO anything for that matter).”

Subsoil73 on Nov 5, 2013 at 14:37:29

“No - that has not been determined. If it was so, you would have included a link to a research journal.”

Just4theHalibut on Nov 5, 2013 at 14:00:23

“The trend to earlier puberty has been documented since the 1840's. Many decades before GMO foods were invented. The trend accelerated in the 1980's. GMO soy was not widely used until 1997. There may be human health problems related to GMO soy, though I am not convinced by research to date. But early puberty is not one of them.”

“I actually respect Jenny McCarthy more than I ever did because of her views on immunizations and autism. Unfortunate that she is being attacked.”

cia parker on Nov 6, 2013 at 12:13:07

“People are not born with autism (unless the fetus was damaged by vaccines the mother got during pregnancy, as is now so often the case). Hundreds of thousands of children were developing normally, speaking, walking, socializing, and then lose all of that as soon as they get the MMR. You say there is clearly no relation, but millions of us now recognize that there is an obvious relationship and it must be stopped. A few children regressed into autism after the smallpox vaccine, but there were NO AUTISTIC CHILDREN anywhere in the world before vaccines. There are zero descriptions of autistic people, even by ancient Greek doctors who accurately described so many diseases, or by Enlightenment scientists and researchers, because it did not exist.”
