Anti-vaxers truly are nature's retards.
@RandomUsername042, Thankfully they're all just engaging in natural selection and will hopefully die off sooner rather than later
@RandomUsername042, the bad thing is is that most of them are vaccinated so they're only hurting their children
@Devil Ocean, That's fine and all but they break our herd immunity so people who unwittingly engage in contact with them get put into the same boat of natural selection you're talking about.
@RandomUsername042, Sir that is insulting to retards everywhere.
It's called herd immunity. Everyone needs the vaccine for it to work.
@Amethyst Sky, agreed though technically it does not to be everyone , depending on how contagious the disease is there isn't necessarily a 100% threshold to prevent general transference , that being said it's a numbers game, the only way to prevent 100% transference of a disease is to get 100% of population vaccinated but you might only need 90% of population vaccinated to prevent 99% of population from getting affected .
@Y0UR C0NSCIENCE, exactly, and the other factor diseases spreading among non vaccinated people can lead to the diseases mutating faster and developing a vector that surpasses the vaccines current immunity. Basically mutating the disease enough that the body can't respond to it because that's all vaccines do is infect you with a weakened strain to give your white blood cells the ability to fight the full strength disease.
@Y0UR C0NSCIENCE, the numbers are not necessarily that good. At even 95% vaccinated people can be at risk.
@Ollie Queen, Also, some people can't be vaccinated - very young children, elderly people, people with compromised immune systems etc - and so they need herd immunity to protect them.
@Y0UR C0NSCIENCE, also some people who can't get certain vaccines, like infants and pregnant women, are protected more by herd immunity due to the lower risk of outbreak.
@Amethyst Sky, just to clear this up, since a whole line of thought sprung from this; that is not herd immunity at all. Herd immunity is the reason we arent scared of outbreaks. Essentially if 9/10 are vaccinated, if #10 gets sick, there is little chance for spread since most others are resistant, effectively ending the outbreak. Herd immunity means NOT everyone needs it. Just for anyone that needs the real definition.
@Marine Scientist, herd immunity or not, I’m with the Spartans on this one. If there is someone who can’t hold their shield, they endanger the person next to them by offering a point of entry. We’re getting the glue from birds and pigs now. How long before smallpox finds one of these people unwilling to vaccinate and finds a way past the rest of our defenses.
We're not afraid 'of' you, we're afraid 'for' you.
And we think it's sad that your parents don't mind you dying a horrible excruciating death that could have been avoided with a simple shot because Jenny McRetardedtits told you not to.
I actually support people who don't vaccinate their kids, there's enough people in this world already.
@A puertorrican guy, then you have no idea why we use vaccines in the first place
@A puertorrican guy, yeah me too until some baby with no vaccine dies..., its a real bummer.
@A puertorrican guy, I 100% support you bro. Population control. It's sad when babies die but in reality the well being of the world matters more. We are overpopulated and the earth can't support this many people.
@Dr Who Fandom, It takes about 3 or 4 cases of dead babies due to a weak in immune system. Then they just become numbers.
@A puertorrican guy, this really is a difficult thing for me. People should have the right to choose what medical procedures they get but due to heard immunity (I think I spelled it wrong) we really all need to immunize. This is honestly the only rights vs. Safety question I can't give an immediate confident answer.
@A puertorrican guy, so... can you please start with removing yourself and your family? Or are you only in favor of controlling populations when others die?
@Anonymous3301, if I could push a button and have 50% of the entire human race (chosen completely at random) just disintegrate, I would press it.
If I was part of the 50% that lived, I'd immediately commit suicide, though.
It's not that I want to die, I just think humanity would benefit against its will, and if it ever got out that I was responsible, I'd probably be made to suffer FAR worse.
@I Are Lebo, I would also push the button. But after that I would accept the random decision. If I lived I would fight to live the best life I can. Make as much of a difference. I would feel remorse for all those that lost family and friends but I think the justification of the greater good would help me remove my feelings from the situation and move forward.
@Smurf309fs, so you're asking a person and his family to die because he condones people choosing to take a risk with their own life and the lives of their children?
@Smurf309fs, I would prefer that people didn't die due to lack or absence of medical services. But at some point you just go "eh"
@Anonymous3301, I don't know. I'm not soulless. Seeing that much hurt might break me.
More importantly, we humans have proven ourselves to be a bunch of vengeful bastards. I shudder to think of the kinds of torture the person who killed half the human race would suffer at the hands of the other half.
They'd invent all new ways of hurting you.
@I Are Lebo, Hahahaha calling me soulless. Not nice. A broken person can become whole again. And society is going to need to come together at that point. It'll be an all hands on deck situation. Yeah I don't think I could press the button if everyone knew I was doing that. Having the entire world watching me I think I'd crumble under that pressure
@Anonymous3301, what?! I wasn't calling you soulless! I was saying that the person who killed half the human race would become the single most hated person in history. If I was dead or my location/identity was unknown, then the survivors would have a unified enemy to hand together against and would use that to thrive.
But I genuinely believe that if someone who caused nearly 4 billion deaths was to be found and apprehended, the survivors would band together for the purpose of punishment. That would only corrupt them further.
My remark was about me, not you. I don't think suicide is the cowards way out if the alternative is looking over your shoulder for the rest of your (likely very short) life.
@I Are Lebo, but if I don't think seeing all that hurt would break me. Doesn't that mean I'd be the soulless one? Hahaha not offended one bit. Lol. And yes everyone would join together it would end religious wars and the human race would be peaceful for a short amount of time.
@A puertorrican guy, vaccines only work if the mass majority get vaccines. So you're saying people who don't want vaccines should be allowed to compromise the system?
@Anonymous3301, that's a very naive mindset. The loss of fifty percent would be more likely to open the doors for more violence, not less.
ISIS's mindset wouldn't be changed by this one iota. Radical Christians would likely view the event as the rapture, and many of them would assume heaven was denied to them because they "weren't pious enough", and become even more radical.
And for the last time, I wasn't saying that there's a direct correlation between having a soul and being broken. But I don't think anyone can truly imagine that level of guilt, especially if you start seeing all the survivors mourning their unimaginable loss.
It was a turn of phrase, that's all. I don't even truly believe in souls to begin with.
@HellboyPerlman, you can deny yourself health care, but if you are sick with a contagion society will lock you up to keep others save.
@I Are Lebo, and what happens when half the population is gone and everyone radicalizes like you said. It would be anarchy the world will completely be ravaged by a war that would wipe out modern civilization and send us back to the Stone Age. That right there would unite all non radicalized people into working together to make sure the entire world doesn't implode. How is it naive to have hope that in the face of total worldly collapse that the human race would join in hands to ensure that our race survives
@Anonymous3301, it's naive to assume that the human race would be able to achieve total peace for any real length of time, especially when law enforcement would be likely taking an enormous hit as well.
@I Are Lebo, oh no I don't think peace would last very long. Long enough to reestablish the world then things will slowly go back to how they were before hand. But I don't think that would initiate a global war. I think there is more good in a persons heart. After all the pain the world will go through we humans won't intentionally cause more. There would be a time of prosperity before the world returns to normal.
@Anonymous3301, maybe you simply have more faith in humanity than I do.
@I Are Lebo, Hahahaha that very well may be the deciding factor between our two viewpoints
The biggest reason to vaccinate your kids is to protect the select few who are allergic to vaccines and have to rely on group immunity to stay healthy.
Child I'm not afraid of you. I'm afraid for you. I'm afraid of your parents because they are monsters for not vaccinating you.
So many ignorant comments. Do even half of you have kids? Or did your professors tell you what to say when it comes to vaccines?
@M4XiMuM MiNi, I can't tell if you're for or against vaccination.
Vaccines never give you 100% immunity. They just protect you from the most common strains of a disease but you are still vulnerable to less common strains or strains that are just really resistant
@TriangleTesticles, Also each individual has a limited number of diseases that they're inmune to. So there's a disease that your body can't fight back.
@A puertorrican guy, I don’t think that’s how that works
@FP Waiter, It's a genetics thing, antibodies are proteins and they're sequenced in your DNA, so when you face a new disease your body starts to read the AB sequences to make a functional antibody. But you can encounter a disease that you can't produce antibodies against it, due to the possibility that the required antibody needed isn't sequenced in your DNA.
@A puertorrican guy, that's got really nothing to do with vaccines though. Also some diseases aren't fought just with antibodies. Sometimes the body is just really inhospitable towards and it can't take hold.
No, I'm afraid of my 6 week old child catching measles and dying because we went to the same supermarket as your stupid ass and your infected child.
Yeah they don't work on newborns who've yet to have them, they don't work on immune suppressed people. Pity there's not a vax to prevent stupidity
Google, search "Italian vaccine study."
