Acquired Paranoid Delusion Syndrome—Hallmark Of Anti-Vaxxers

by Glenn R. Geist

OK, I’ve had it with the anti-vaccination people. If I were to going to go into business advising people not to wear seat belts, to always have a few beers before driving I would be ridden out of town on a rail—unless I could tie it to the disease of the day: APDS or Acquired Paranoid Delusion Syndrome. It may be the fastest growing mental illness pandemic today.

“Thousands of babies are dying in their sleep after vaccination,” says the fake news site. Perhaps that’s true, but how many are dying the day before and is this a world wide number? This doesn’t meet any test of validity since we don’t know the population size and haven’t isolated the factor and there’s no control group and so many other things that you don’t have to be a statistician to see. In fact there is no evidence for this observation in the first place. Remember thousands of adults are dying right after brushing their teeth or going to the toilet or posting on Facebook!

“I love it when science can tell us how a mummy died 10,000 years ago but when thousands of babies die 48 hours after vaccines it’s a sudden unexplainable death” says the Facebook post. I love it when people lie.

First of all mummies are already dead and it’s unusual to be sure why the mummified person died – and of course this is non-sequitur and just an infantile attempt at discrediting science.

Look at any chart of infant mortality and it’s dramatic how vaccination has benefited everyone. There has been no uptick in child mortality since the practice started only an increase in disease. They are killing people! Do we know that there’s an increase in “unexplainable death? No we do not. They made it up. “Thousands of babies” out of how many – a billion? No, if you fall for this, your deranged, deluded and stupid and you are killing people. By pretending you have a valid case and thay you have a big following, you are killing children – and adults.

Measles doesn’t kill people insist the anti-Vaccine Vampires. Yes it does and maims people too. Meningitis results causing brain damage and hearing loss and immunosuppression that leads to other dangerous diseases and the stunting of growth.

” But there has only been one death and she was sick with something else, insist the enemy of the people.” That’s because until recently the disease was gone – and now, it’s coming back with around 700 cases at the moment. If you can’t think straight, the claim that it’s not dangerous is based on the effect of the vaccine.

BEFORE THE VACCINE THERE WERE ALMOST 500 DEATHS FROM MEASLES IN THE US EVERY YEAR. Why is Facebook allowing lethal lies and misinformation to be published? I demand that something be done!

Plese join me in reporting these enemies of the people to Facebook and demand they be shut down.

    Seems facebook is listening. Along with some other hate sites, they’ve anounced that they’re going after the Anti-Vaxxers.

    As much as I try to convince conservative people to think about they already have their evangelical/ Republican talking point down and begins a two hour discussion mot on the issue but about whether the issue should be an issue. It is much like I tell my Criminology students that the theories regarding criminality are simply foundations of knowledge looking for others to build on their knowledge. They argue, “Its just theories”. That partially due to ignorance of the scientific methods of research and its ongoing verification. I usually remind them that gravity is also a theory but if they want to empirically test to just step off the roof of a 10 story building and see if the hit the ground.
    The field of the various sciences, and especially that of medicine, is extremely rigorous and had numerous protocols in place to verify both the methodology and the findings long before the public even knows that it it is being studied. The same is pretty much true in all the sciences.

    The Religious Right is quick to claim “Evolution” is just a “theory.” The damage these people do to the world and the science that made it is disturbing.

    “It’s just a theory” always makes me angry, because by putting “just” before anything is an empty way of denouncing something without having to demonstrate a weakness. 4 is just 2 and 2. You then proceed as though theory means opinion and that one opinion is no better than another. A theory is like a working model and working is a key word. If praying for rain and getting it were a theory, it would work, but it doesn’t. If tested, it will fail. It’s not a theory.

    The role of science in testing claims is ignored and science is sold as “just” another form of belief, or even religion. Of course it’s the antithesis.

    People who argue like this are not much different than crooked car dealers. and somehow we’re trained not to think analytically in grade school. Just think of how different it would be if we all had the motivation and ability to question everything. That goes triple for “alternative medicine” Calling it alternative suggests it’s equally valid without having any real evidence beyond an anecdote like “my kid got a shot and then got sick” and never mind all the other things he did and how the one anecdote is statistically insignificant.

    Thinking is a learned skill. It’s time we taught our kids how but we’re thwarted by the vast power of commerce and politics and religion which would have to pay a price if we all did.

    Generally, the anti vaxxers and their ilk are usually some of the least educated. Many go through some type of religious education and are taught to just accept what people say. Many go to schools where no one dare question the “authority”. It is interesting that tens of millions of people who received vaccination as children are telling the rest of the people not to get vaccinated. This fucking world is being doomed by nut cases.
