Red flag term - "conspiracy theorists." Appears we have a policy-thumping, State Supremacist amongst us.
"The Salk vaccine failed completely (we'll issue a special report on that at a later date). And the Sabin vaccine was a disaster. It caused many cases of polio and showed no relationship to the disease except for an increase in polio during the early '60s, caused by the vaccine itself. And now we have the sensational findings from the Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences, which strongly indicate that polio did not go away at all, but now manifests itself as chronic fatigue syndrome." William Douglas MD
"Use of either Salk or Sabin vaccine will increase the possibility that your child will contact the disease. It appears that the most effective way to protect your child from polio is to make sure that he doesn't get the vaccine " Dr Mendelsohn M.D.(1984)
"No batch of vaccine can be proved safe before it is given to children." Surgeon General of the United States, Leonard Scheele, addressing an AMA convention in 1955
"The only safe vaccine is a vaccine that is never used" Dr. James A. Shannon, National Institutes of Health
Pick up the book --somewhere-- Come, Let Us Reason and look over the article ...Logical Fallacies (PDF) not only Evolutionists suffer from logical fallacies, but also conspiracy theorists, etc. as well.
...And that was quoted from a recognized health organization? I doubt it. OPV AIDS hypothesis. The superstitious and the backward, are always attacking vaccinations. If they can someone who knows what he's talking about and don't use shamans or Imams as experts we will give them a listen.
By the way, got your flu shot? (If you aren't allergic to eggs that is.) Now for old geezers it isn't that important, well it is actually probably more than young ones, but it also has the least effect.
"Jonas Salk, inventor of the IPV, testified before a Senate subcommittee that nearly all polio outbreaks since 1961 were caused by the oral polio vaccine."
"Official data shows that large scale vaccination has failed to obtain any significant improvement of the diseases against which they were supposed to provide protection" - Dr. Sabin, developer of Polio vaccine.
"Many here voice a silent view that the Salk and Sabin Polio Vaccines, being made from monkey kidney tissue, has been directly responsible for the major increase in leukaemia in this country." - Dr F. Klenner, M.D.
"More recently Greater Africa radio founder Kihura Nkuba described how he discovered the genocidal agenda against his people in Uganda as administered through the oral polio vaccine (OPV) and how he was silenced for broadcasting this information. In an extremely moving presentation at the National Vaccine Information Center conference in November, 2002, Nkuba explained that parents knew the vaccines were killing and maiming their children but were powerless to stop the vaccinators. They were forced to hide their strongest children out in the jungle while sacrificing their weakest children for vaccination by the WHO." --Don Harkins
The Taliban was worried about spying which I doubt these women were doing and by the false tales of sterilization of any action done by Westerners, including giving food to Muhammadans. Apparently they think all people behave like they do.
Most of you don't really need this reminder, but this was written (I should look at his history again, by Methodist and part of the board of missions to the region of Turkey), I believe he gave an account about the massacre at Smyrna, q.v.,
Gregory Topalian wrote: The reports provide insights into the psyche of the perpetrators and victims alike. The victims have similar responses to the assault. One is faced with a chaotic, anarchic, and frenzied atmosphere. Terror-stricken and starving Armenians are begging foreigners, such as American missionaries and officials, for assistanceâfor their lives, for food and water. The perpetrators, meanwhile, seem to relish in their victimsâ distress. These phenomena are disturbing even before taking into account the incidents of rape, mutilation, infanticide, and torture that are a common theme throughout. The title under which these materials were originally filed, "Atrocities, Turkish," was not a misnomer.
