Today in the News (13 May 09)

Vaccines:
Sadly the H1N1 flu virus is pretty much dominating any news about vaccines at this time. Although, in my little corner of the world, there are cases of pertussis (whooping cough). All I can say is that you can expect to see more and more cases of this as time goes on unless the irrisponsible lies of the pro-disease and anti-vax folks can be stopped.

I did see this article about yet another cancer that may show promise to a vaccine treatment. This time it's breast cancer, and this is a very preliminary trial, so don't stop those self exams just yet!

Autism:
So what would all the anti-vax pro-disease proponents say if an autism diagnosis was possible before any vaccinations had been given? I suppose that would really take the winds out of their sails. I just found this older article where a Dr. Sheinkopf is hoping to do just that. Add this to the Systematic Observation of Red Flags (SORF), and we may be getting somewhere. Sadly, there is still so much we don't know, and in those gaps of knowledge, lies and misinformation breed worse than any virus or bacteria!

Evolution:
Does evolution conflict with religion? Well, it depends really. One thing that we can say though is that evolution has no conflict what so ever with reality. The linked essay does give a relatively respectful breakdown on a few thoughts on the subject.

I also found this interesting article about the same problem I seem to encounter all the time. People who disagree with the theory of evolution, basically just don't understand it. Hopefully this website will help in that.
