jrod0725, you didn't find those links on your own. You didn't even read the one you posted on vaccinosis. You copied that stuff from some web site.

Fess up.
Allow me to point out that non-experts must rely upon source credibility as well as prior plausibility and evidence. Weighing the evidence may require some technical skills beyond the average reader. When that happens, source credibility trumps evidence.

If the vaccine thing has anyone worried, consider this: On the one hand, Jonas Salk. On the other, jrod0725, MCrnigoj, and AlinMoraru.

Now I've got to get back to work. Hopefully this little demonstration of proper woo spanking technique will be of use to some of the skepticos here.
