First, I'd like to say that I welcome the active discussion that is occurring. It's been far too long that this board has been dormant. What seems to happen, over and over (at least since I've been posting here) is that some in the provaccine camp like to activate a guilt by association campaign and stereotype every person that asks a reasonable question about our current practice of vaccinating every child from the day they are born... then two months later, then two months later, then two months later, then six months later, then six to eight months later, and so on. There are reasonable and logical questions, and I think we ask them here. We don't all put our tin foil hats on, wrap our houses in copper mesh to block big brother, and go outside in plastic bags because we are afraid of chemtrails.
HOWEVER, I'm growing very tired of the provaccine camp acting as if those questioning the current protocol don't understand history, etc... This accusation was made in a thread below, and I think it deserves its own. You want to talk about history? Let's do that, starting from an appropriate time period - BEFORE the Industrial Revolution and BEFORE Agriculture (in all of its perverted forms) gripped this Earth and refused to let it go.
Fossil records show a sharp decline in the health of our species as soon as we began to farm... these slow, subtle changes afforded bacteria the time it needed to evolve and become opportunistic. Cyclical viruses took more of a hold on its hosts and began to cull the herd that grew weak because of its domestication practices. Don't put vaccines in the knight and shining armor light as if nothing that occurred prior to their development had any bearing on the outcomes that are so commonly used to espouse our paranoia and 'detachment from reality'.
Keep it ALL in perspective please, that's all I ask.
