Because antivaxxers are like Jehovah’s Witnesses. It’s not enough to have a belief, you have to ram it down everyone’s throat, whether they want it or not. They are modern day zealots.

You think this is bad, I was posting in a Doctors forum last week and not one of them could tell me the memory items for an engine fire in cruise. Pretty clear from their silence that we're not being told everything about engine fires. The Government is hiding something.

Doctor before COVID. OK with you? It was a pilot forum years ago, got sold on the open market.

Not one commenter can make a comment considered to be that of a reasonable person - only insults or rubbish reply's.

But that was expected.

Karl Today. lol.

He never researched the WHO position on passports (long standing)

But then tried to continue his agenda on the matter, then she tried.

Embarrassing.

His book on the subject (also pre COVID 19) has all references linked if you wish to buy it.

Bend alot. I was being sarcastic. The analogy was misguided.

Thanks for that link. Note that as measles vaccine uptake dropped off, it was three times more widespread in Europe in 2017 per the video. Aside that, this doctor is advocating caution for childhood vaccines.

Then go talk to your doctor ex-colleagues. Not sure what sort of agenda you’re trying to drive on a PILOT forum that is full of PILOTS. Sheesh!

Post rubbish, get rubbish back. Not difficult to understand.

If you expected only rubbish, then why did you post over and over again (sometimes 3 posts in a row) ?

That wasn't what he was asking. Your qualifications are irrelevant. Why are you asking a group of people with no training in a particular field, complex questions from within that field and then getting frustrated when they can't answer?

If you have 'real concerns' or however else antivax clowns like to frame their nonsense to seem credible, go find actual professionals from the relevant fields and talk to them. What on earth you hope to prove here by 'winning' an argument with people who have zero expertise on the subject is a mystery to me.

It's illogical to ask complex medical questions of professional pilots, and expect accurate responses.

I personally believe that anti vaxxers + potentially life-threatening pandemic = self-regulation of that minority. Charles Darwin would be looking on in eager anticipation...

Darwin would be intrigued.
Normally in classical evolution species attempt to maximise their reproductive fitness via the invisible hand of their genetic superiority in some environmental niche.
Its very unusual , in the biological world , for species to knowingly and willingly reduce their reproductive fitness.
The only sad thing is they will occupy a lot of ICU beds in the process.

Don't wish to sound callous, but every anti-vaxxer who dies contributes to an infinitessimal increase in the national average intelligence level. Darwin's Law at work.

I think we just got a glimpse of how anti-vaxxer forums operate.

Agree , but would argue about infinitesimal, given that 15 to 20 % seem to be vaccine resistant.
I just have enormous sympathy for ICU nurses dealing with patients who deny that COVID is a thing with their dying breath.

The Golden Rule: if you're going to insult the intelligence of others, at least ensure you get the spelling correct as you do so. Sorry, but there's only one 's' in infinitesimal. The forum software even spell-checks it for you so it beggars belief that you still managed to get it wrong. What were you saying about intelligence?

My apologies, I thought you were having a seniors-moment like Biden. Your manners are impeccable, Gramps. Okay, well, good-bye to you, too. Again.

Have you ever examined the stats? Since no one here (apart from Gramps) is in the old-age or infirm group it's hardly "life-threatening" for most posters here, is it? Watch out, Stick, the sky's gonna fall on your head. Better stay indoors and enjoy your kool-aid while the gov't keeps you nice and safe!

Remember when the chemtrails movement gained momentum and we all thought how stupid can one be? Despite professional pilots and engineers explaining exactly what was going on, the nutters thought it to be true because you know, “follow the money”. We openly mocked them for thier utter lack of intelligence. Remember that? In fact they still exist but they’ve now joined the anti-vaxxers since it’s the next big bandwagon. How can someone think like that despite all the evidence to the contrary, right?

That is how you folk now look in the eyes of the overwhelming majority.

1 out of every 500 Americans is now dead due to Covid.

Covid infections had a pretty solid result on obesity. That's actual Darwinism in effect.

Anyone who uses the word "Darwinism" doesn't actually understand evolution.

Which genes are you suggesting will not be expressed in future generations due to Covid?

And as humans, do we value the lives of obese people and those with other conditions less than others?
