    That depends on how you define "fine."

    Polio was a dreadful disease that crippled or killed people. Smallpox is so deadly that it's been weaponized. Ebola can likely be mitigated by vaccines. The Bubonic Plague wiped out anywhere from 30-60% of Europe's population, and probably killed 100 million people.

    No one is suggesting that the entire human race will be eradicated by diseases that can be prevented by vaccines. But there should be no question that vaccines, despite the handful of adverse effects, have spared millions of lives and a great deal of suffering.

    I doubt that. But when I have time I will go thru the thread.

    We can't afford to pander to science denying crazy people or treat their views on vaccinations as anything remotely approaching respectable. If widely adopted, their advice would have serious harmful affects on public health.
    Sorry, but when you resort to spreading misleading information or outright lies to get your point across, you're as much of a "denier" of reality as those who you'd like to pretend are so crazy and different.

    Besides, since when did telling the truth become "pandering?"

    Sure it is, but you can't point out that the human race has survived as if that's an argument against vaccines. Go count the numbers paralyzed by polio... They survived....
