Would life-changing complications due to contracting such diseases also be considered part of the "rite of passage"?

Compared to a few hundred case on average per year of measles.

With a rate of 90%+ immunization (Source) it's no wonder that there is just a few cases (yet).

As some pro-vaccinator stated earlier; "darwinism" thins out the weak from the strong.

In fact I had the mumps too.

Mumps can cause sterility and deafness. Some rite of passage. "You have had the sickness, now you are a man. But you'll never be a father. I SAID, YOU'LL NEVER BE A FATHER."

It was a rite of passage for you??

Did people come to you and say "you have the sickness now you are a man"?

Did they give you a new name afterwards?


I bet Itchy and Scratchy were popular names.

Except that it's indiscriminate, and if they don't die, then no selection takes place.

I don't think you even know what "Darwinism" means...

Eugenics much, bro?

Those taking vaccinations are artificially skewing evolution/darwinism. If they so worship this science they should stop getting the vaccinations and succumb to their sacred darwinism. They will be stronger for it.

I see.


You are science illiterate in more than one field.

And if you are anti-vaxxer, you shouldn't be allowed any access to health care or medicine. You've made your choice, live with it.

Says the person who claims.

"Those taking vaccinations are artificially skewing evolution/darwinism."

This is just nonsense. No one worships science, there is no such thing as "sacred darwinism," and no sane person argues that humankind should exist in a state of nature and be subject to natural selection. You have run out of arguments and you're trying to drum up support from creationists by associating public health measures with evilution.

Or maybe I just got Poe'd.

If that's the case, there is a lot of Poe'ing going on at ATS. I feel like I need to add this to the end of my posts.

I never really argued any position. I simply stated my observation that I survived measles, mumps and chickenpox. Others inferred that I was a scary "anti-vaccinator" amongst other accusations that I'm sterile, hard of hearing and cannot procreate offspring. My position is simple. Vaccination theory has been skewed for profit which produces toxic and sometimes lethal results on a certain percentage of the vaccinated population. Roll the dice to take chance on artificially preserving your position in the evolutionary chain.

How do you catch something that is eradicated?

Internet?

It is being brought into the country by people who come from nations that do not vaccinate for the virus. Now with growing trend of people no wanting to get their shots a possible resurgence could occur. This is a good thing because it helps to clean out the gene pool.

Perhaps a bit more information concerning the overall health of this now dead person would help the debate here. Perhaps this woman received a vaccination. The elderly are now encouraged to be vaccinated. My elderly parents have a life long immunity but they are always being pressured to take an MMR.

The coroner found Measles, from what I can tell given the thin amount of information that you linked it may not have been the cause of death.

This isn't about pro-vax or anti-vax. This is a personal liberty issue and is about our rights to determine what we do with our own bodies. If people don't see the can of worms they open up when they cede the rights to their own body to government on this issue then they don't understand a damn thing about freedom and the right to self-determination. Government will use this as a precedence to force people into all kinds of other procedures in the future. It's what they do.


Try that argument when you're ticketed for driving without a seatbelt.

Some people are so stupid they need protection from themselves.

Don't you think that comment is a little bigoted?
