I almost feel like it was posted sarcastically, like basically saying prove what you claim but not out right saying it. That way they have to respond in kind since the poster is claiming to be a new “covert” then when nobody can post anything other than discredited stuff or blog posts people may just have to reconsider their views
@George Feeny, I automatically assumed this, yeah.
This kind of the thought is the issue with colleges. People look for things that affirm their unfounded feelings. In the social sciences this is easy to do. Thank goodness you can't fib science unless its at the fundamental logic behind it.
@PoliticalOtters, honestly, when did this become college life? When I was in college people partied and went to class, there wasn't all this activist bullcrap. I blame smartphones.
@Not him again, .... how old are you? I don’t mean that as offensively as it sounds I’m honestly curious it feels like I have been out of college forever but smart phones were very much prevalent when I was there
@PoliticalOtters, I'm currently getting my masters and constantly have to get scholarly articles. I've learned that if you can't find something (college library or internet...yes, you can get articles through google that you can't find elsewhere), it probably means either there is no research to back it or has not been done
@George Feeny, I'll be 31 in a couple of weeks. I think the 1st gen iPhone was around towards the end, and there were blackberrys, but not many kids had either. Plus there wasn't nearly as many social media platforms back then. Facebook and MySpace were pretty much it
@PoliticalOtters, as a political science major I can confirm this.
@PoliticalOtters, disagree. This kind of thought is not unique to colleges, it is unique to the individuals who try to express their personal viewpoints. Good colleges encourage civil discourse of all sorts of ideas. Anyone who is unable to have a reasoned discussion on any topic has not matured intellectually. College education is not the cause.
@occasionalmutant, did I say it only happens at colleges or that college education is the cause? I don't see how any of what you've said is a response to what I said.
@Not him again, so in a couple weeks youll be in your prime?
Sorry. As an engineering major, i have added many math puns to my repertoire.
@Not him again, ah ok so about 5 or so years older then me, that would make sense
Maybe write a thesis about how you used to be anti-vax but after research you learned that its actually helpful in saving lives.
Here is one such journal article, was a Canadian study on the 2014 and 2015 flu vaccine that found if you had both shorts you were increased risk for getting the flu compared to if you only had one or the other shot...
Georgia Southern University?
Lol what a crock of horse shlt
This is exactly like what happened in one of my sustainability classes. One guy in my group wanted to do his part of our "how climate change effects business" report on how climate change will not effect business (or anything for that matter). But the report required 10 legitimate sources for each part. His sources? Facebook pages with 200 followers, YouTube personalities, and blogs he found online. We told him those won't count as viable sources, he called us idiots for using sources like NASA and the National Climate Assessment to argue the opposite. It was a rough project.
The fact that other countries are also for the vaccines. Only further counters these morons view.
Smell that it's the smell of stupid
I like to think they are asking for them on purpose knowing there isn't any but then I remember how stupid people are.
