Neil deGrasse Tyson is a “science popularizer” who is featured in countless YouTube videos. Tyson has twenty honorary doctorate degrees, and has published several books on science. He is a frequent keynote speaker in national science conferences, and a frequent guest on TV talk shows, where he often gets a standing ovation as he walks onto a stage.
Tyson is also an idiot.
He says you are “anti-science” if you question the safety and efficacy of vaccines, even though no vaccine has ever been scientifically tested for safety and efficacy.
That is, no vaccine has ever been subjected to double-blind placebo-controlled testing. Not one. Not ever.
Therefore Tyson’s claims about vaccines are anti-science.
In a double-blind test (or trial, or experiment) neither the participants nor the researchers know which participants belong to the test group, and which belong to the “control group” who get a placebo.
No vaccine has ever been subjected to this, or even to a single-blind test, where researchers know who gets the vaccine, and who gets the placebo. There has never once been a study done in which two controlled populations are compared, one with vaccines, and one without. NEVER.
If Tyson were “scientific,” he would retract his idiotic defenses of Big Pharma. However Tyson knows this would end his career. Therefore he remains a professional liar.
You can see this by Googling the words “vaccination” plus “Neil deGrasse Tyson.”
Example: “Neil deGrasse Tyson comes down on firmly on the side of science, which has shown that vaccines are both safe and effective.”
Example: “Tyson lists the anti-vaccine movement, alternative medicine and opposition to genetically modified organisms as examples of left wing anti-science.”
(“Alternative medicine” means anything other than what Big Pharma trains its puppet doctors to say.)
Big Pharma is continually being sued for harming and killing people in its quest for profits. Two days ago (4 May 2017) a St. Louis jury awarded a Virginia woman $110.5 million in the latest lawsuit against Johnson & Johnson, whose baby powder, the jury concluded, causes cancer. This comes after three previous St. Louis juries awarded $197 million to plaintiffs against Johnson & Johnson. About 2,000 state and federal lawsuits are in courts across the country over concerns about health problems caused by prolonged use of talcum powder.
And that is only one item (talcum powder, which in its natural form contains asbestos, a known carcinogen). Pharmaceutical companies are continually killing and harming people, and must pay endless millions in fines. They consider this the cost of doing business.
But when it comes to vaccines, those same companies are protected from lawsuits by federal statute. Pharmaceutical companies are legally infallible. No one can touch them, no matter how many deaths and injuries they cause. (If you think this is an exaggeration, then please stop gulping the Kool-Aid.)
Since Big Pharma has 100% federal protection, to even consider questioning their vaccine products is to be “unscientific.”
This is what passes for “intelligence” in the USA. With a population like this, it’s no wonder that Tyson gets standing ovations.
Incidentally the vaccine fanatics admit that no vaccine has ever been tested for safety and effectiveness. They say this is because safety tests would be “unethical.”
Got that? We test regular drugs for safety and effectiveness, since it would be unethical not to. But with “harmless” vaccines, it is “unethical” to test them to see if they are indeed “harmless.” If this seems absurd to you, it is because you are not “scientific.”
