 1)Please provide evidence, in the form of a direct quote from Doshi's writing, that he has resorted to ad hominem argument, and please explain how this invalidates his point or points. 2) Pointing out perceived fallacies has become a favorite excuse of debaters to shut down intelligent discussion; usually, the perceived fallacy doesn't even apply, or only partially applies.  I suspect that that is the case with your attack on Doshi.3) You don't exactly paint yourself in a...
 Perhaps you'd like to talk with the parents of Madyson Williams.  The US government conceded that her death was caused by the MMR and awarded her parents $250,000.  Or you could talk with the families of the other 277 people whose MMR-associated deaths were reported to VAERS.  The ethics regarding vaccination isn't complicated.  The question is how many people who have had severe adverse effects from an unnecessary, invasive medical procedure we can tolerate, and why...
Did you even read the link you provided about measles in the army in 1917?   Apparently, the General Staff ignored the Medical department's recommendations to prevent epidemics such as the measles one that you mention:  According to Colonel Victor C. Vaughan of the Medical Corps, "Insufficient clothing, overcrowding in tents, barracks, and hospitals, and lack of heat in the houses...have been potent in the development of pneumonia among our soldiers, and for these...
You have provided zero evidence for any of this.You're doing quite a lot of personal attack on Doshi.  That's a bit of an ad hominem, isn't it? "Doshi's own writing proves that he is not an honest clear thinker," but you're talking in circles:  you say that Doshi is not a clear honest thinker based on the fact that he is (in your mind) guilty of ad hominem attacks.  You re-badge his calling out misperceptions and dishonesty regarding the flu vaccine  as "ad hominem."There...
Sorry, I missed why your standards are much higher than Doshi's.  Can you explain?
I'd really like to know why the spokesman for the Columbus Health Department needs to have these kinds of skills:   Jose Rodriguez's Skills & Expertise Public Affairs   Visual Information   DoD   Military   Security Clearance   Army National Security   Defense   Military Operations   Command   Top Secret   Military Experience Air Force   Government   Information Assurance   Homeland Security   Operational Planning Government...

 Google Jose Rodrigues on LinkedIn. You can't make that stuff up, either. http://www.linkedin.com/pub/jose-rodriguez/31/6/683
 We don't know what the rate is.  As you say, the rate is not zero.But we also know that the vast majority of people who are apparently exposed to true influenza (because "it's everywhere!"  Right?) don't come down with serious influenza symptoms.  Very, very few people actually come down with lab-confirmed influenza.We also know that a certain percentage have adverse reactions to flu shots.   We don't know that rate, either, because reactions are poorly recognized, poorly...
 Are you unaware of the fact that you may be contagious for 2-3 weeks after being vaccinated with a live-virus vaccine, like FluMist, and that you put people with impaired immune systems at risk for contracting the flu from you?Are you unaware of the fact that most people with flu-like symptoms do not actually have influenza? Are you unaware of the fact that efficacy of the flu vaccine is only 59%?  Do you know where they got that number?  It does NOT mean that 59% of...
