Oh how I laughed at a Facebook post on Ginger Taylor's page yesterday. Back in August, NASA Chief Jim Bridenstein declared that Pluto is a planet indeed, despite its intergalactic demotion in 2005. My quip response was:
Poor Pluto... it's like planetary ASD in the DSM V.
I thought that was rather clever of me. Until I read Jill Zammit's comment:
How? I thought the science was settled?
And Jill wins the Internet!
One of the lines that vaccine injury apologists LOVE to throw around is: "THE SCIENCE IS SETTLED." Please read that in James Earl Jones' booming voice for proper resonance.
Sure. Vaccine science is settled. Like millions of American bellies after overindulging on Thanksgiving. Settled.
Find a showing of VAXXED II THE PEOPLE'S TRUTH and learn for yourself how settled is the science. The movie is completely unsettling. Especially the segments on Gardasil and SIDS, which bring in huge communities unrelated to us crazy anti-vaxxers seeking to blame something, anything for our kids autism.
Me? I don't need the head of NASA to tell me Pluto is a planet. I already know it. STEVE told me. And my kids have loved this song long after they left the Nick Jr age bracket. That's their autism. Just as real as Pluto. I'll bet many of you can sing it with me. "Well the sun's a hot staaaarrrr....."
