Can't you read?
I mentioned celebrities and those who aren't.
Sorry, pal, but you might want to read the thread in its' entirety.
It was predicted by the scientific community that autism rates are expected to increase by an astronomical figure (something like one out of every
10 children born) and, as I responded to the report, how would they know this when they don't know what causes it, unless they really do know what causes autism?
The same as ADD, and ADHD.
The scientific community doesn't know what causes ADD and ADHD, but the pharmaceutical companies certainly know how to treat it.
Not all of us believe everything that comes out of the mouths of the scientific community, as you do.
Actors are narcissistic?
Go to the mirror.
"Oh, and what do you have to say to the fact that Thimerosal has been out of childhood vaccines with no decrease in Autism rates? Or the fact that as a percentage of the population by age group, autism rates have stayed largely flat?"
Please provide back-up to support your claim that those who believe childhood vaccinations to be the cause of autism suggest that Thimerosal was the ingredient in the childhood vaccinations that caused autism and back-up to support your claim that since the scientific community withdrew Thimerosal from vaccinations, autism has stayed largely flat.
So, you're saying that the scientific community has acknowledged that childhood vaccinations that contained Thimerosal were the cause of autism, but since this ingredient has been removed from childhood vaccinations autism rates have stayed largely flat?
But, I thought you said that, "WE" know, for a fact, that childhood vaccinations aren't responsible for autism.
I think you're talkin' mumbo-jumbo.
Autism does not present itself in any other age group other than childhood, so your comment that autism, as a fact, by the percentage of the population by age group has stayed largely flat doesn't make any sense.
FYI, autism is on the rise.
Your college degree certainly doesn't seem to serve you very well.
What a waste of time and money.
P.S. You REPEAT, AS A FACT, over and over again, but it doesn't make it a FACT.
