Due to Ning (our Web hosting company) being bought recently from the ashes of Mode Media we often experience 500 connection errors. Our apologies but these errors are out of our control. Hopefully, this will improve as the new company gains experience. Regards, AU

The medical profession, & then she needs to deny her statements about vaccines causing autism!

To whom will Jenny answer?
Comment by Mrs.B yesterday

You got that right!

Comment by Stephen yesterday

Jenny McCarthey has got a lot to answer for.

Comment by Mrs.B yesterday

I never heard about this until big mouth Jenny McCarthey, so I wonder if the majority of parents heard it this way too, & took her word as absolute truth.

The Dangerous Delusion about Vaccines and Autism

Hello again! I begin my joyful return to the pages of the “Magazine for Science and Reason” at the age of eighty-eight. Yes, I’ve slowed down in some ways but have embraced medical science enthusiastically, as it permits me to continue well past the average life span attained by the average male. Our esteemed editor Ken Frazier has set limits on how much I write in this new column for the Skeptical Inquirer, but not upon what subjects I may choose to pontificate. Joy! Here goes. . . .

The US is the center of the universe, everything is about the US, & everything revolves around the US dontcha know?

We get it thrown at us from all sides!

A most interesting development, Stephen. But...

"Liberty. Individualism. Concern for the common good. Hard work. Honesty. Duty. Optimism. Compassion. These are all excellent American values."

Those are all HUMAN values. To say they are American values, add violence and sociopathy.

Scientific inquiry should be an American value, too

(RNS) Science makes America great. That’s why I am going to be part of the March for Science this Earth Day, April 22, on the streets of Washington — and across the country.

Liberty. Individualism. Concern for the common good. Hard work. Honesty. Duty. Optimism. Compassion. These are all excellent American values. Science needs to be an American value as well.

Science enables us to share an understanding of the world, and no nation on earth has done more to advance that common language than America.

If we’re open to what science tells us, it can help us find common ground regardless of whatever religion we do or don’t practice. Science can bring us together because it rules out guesses about how the world might work.

Our founders set the words “E pluribus unum” (out of many, one) on the Great Seal of the United States. The only way this sentiment works is by arguing about what is true that actually gets us all closer to the truth. As difficult and messy as science can be, its track record of improving our shared understanding of our universe is unrivaled.
