Were you relieved, or happy, or annoyed when you heard that the study linking autism to the MMR vaccine was a fraud?
Wait for it please.
Here is why I ask the question.
Last year it was revealed that some important data that drove the “global warming” discussion was fake.
I was at a party after that and I said that I was happy to hear it, since it meant I probably had one less thing to worry about.
But there was this guy there that was pissed off-not because he had been hoodwinked, but because he approved of the hoodwink!
It was the first time I had actually met somebody who saw a virtue in the corruption of science in order to support their politics. (this guy is a loser in other ways as well)
Anyway, when I heard about the autism/MMR scam I wondered if the same thing might be happening. Is there a political debate that has now been called to question because of this fraud?
