Seasoned Voice in the Vaccine Debate

There is a lot of talk about vaccines today. Some not reasonable. Some reasonable demonstrably suppressed. For now, let me make available to you a seasoned voice. It is a re-run from 2009. The voice is someone who was known as a world-class researcher, across many nations, with many publishing partners — top of the line scholar and front line researcher. Then, he listened to some parents. Then, there was an effort to put him down. Villify him. He was exonerated, but maybe you didn’t hear that. The practice he founded that helps children with autism (who have a lot of money) continued here in Austin — without him because of the persecution. Listen to what he says, so reasonably. Know that the persecution had only started at that time. He articulated his dismay to me off mic. How could this be? How could people endure this? Consider how reasonable he was. Yet, I was enthusiastic because the claims match what I know of a different kind of science, that relies on statistics. Further, my doctor had given me a book with citations to peer reviewed journals. I know that there was a great deal of real scientific evidence to suggest the question that was being raised.

Subsequently, the furor got hotter. The man was discredited. His credentials taken away. Terrible things were said on social media by ignorant people. “Oh, he hurt children!” one said. I asked her, “How is it that a RESEARCHER, calling for greater safety measures, can be said to hurt children?” She could say nothing in reply. Because she knew nothing of the case. She was only emotionally incited by… someone who was lying to her… for their economic gain. THEY were the ones hurting children.

Later, courts and research verified that the good doctor was blameless. During those years, more children were hurt. Mostly irreparably so, because the entire medical establishment was snookered. They were told that nothing was known about the cause of autism. So a known, but not patentable, treatment was denied. The cause continues. Often encouraged by tax dollars. More children’s lives ruined. While manufacturers continue to make profits. And continue to lie. One of the ways I count them lying was to make what appeared to be a mothers’ support group. It was a front group. They told mothers that nothing could be done. They got speaking engagements pushing this view on professional educators’ conferences.

But more doctors and more parents know. But so many children!

Today, the issue seems a bit different. But it is not. It continues to center on safety, especially for children. Safety of vaccines. And the narrative is again manipulated. Someone makes profit on this.

Could there be something even more? If so, it would be unimaginably cruel.

Do you own thinking. Let this old audio file make you think.

Comparing Curricular Philosophies

In our series for new homeschoolers, we cover the major philosophies behind the curricula in the public schools, addressing sexual and Marxist content. While we tend to assume school is not like it used to be, the new situation is opening parental eyes to what is going on in schools.

Kingdom Education

Glen Schultz’s book Kingdom Education c98 discusses how dramatically society has moved away from a Godly worldview and thus the necessity of an education that is founded on a Biblical worldview. Quoting from a wide variety of sources, with statistics from Barna at that time, with a lifetime experience in Christian education, Schultz really rings a bell, sounds a gong for our time! Whether you choose home education, Christian school, or public school, you need this historical and society-wide perspective.
