    With one stipulation: you have to have informed awareness of the advantages and limitations of any given experiment before you interpose your own judgment. Keep in mind that many scientists have been disavowing this particular study for years, even before this fraud came to light.
    I know, I appreciate that fact, but if you read the article, the cases of avoidable diseases like measles has gone up since this fraud was published.

    You're absolutely right, one medical journal publishing one article 13 years ago is definitely reflective of the scientific community as a whole.

    I view it more as a failure of the media than peer-reviewed science. Peer-review has been pretty critical since publishing. The theory received more promotion than it deserved.

    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    And what is the alternative to science and logic? Oh yea religious dogma based on 2000 year old writings when people thought the planet was flat.

    there were charges against Wakefield's study very early on here and the Govt tried to make the case for the MMR vaccine but it's not easy to be rational about what you do or do not put into your child's body when they are so helpless. My ex wife and I read the literature at the time and had our two boys vaccinated - but reading the literature still didn't dispell all fear as the needles went in.

    I would just like to say that I got mumps and my sister got ruebella from our vaccine. That is all.

    Scientists are supposed to lie? That's how it works? Scientists lied about global warming, too. Is that ok by you?

    Scientists are probably more dangerous than preachers.
