Amnesiac, I have just re-read this entire thread. Each of the posters have brought to this thread their own personal "strategies" as it relates to evalutating data/evidence, research, publications, websites, etc. and yet their answers are frustrating you ?????
Yes, "but who is
the expert?" Who is
the most credible? What is truth? What is the garbage? Is it the CDC? Is it Think Twice? Should I go to a website to help me evaluate? Should I use my common sense? Amnesiac - are you
the expert in evaluating evidence? Am I? Is anyone
Bottom line: A thousand highly educated, highly respected, critical thinking medical professionals with lots of "credible" titles after their names could throw all the credible analyzed "evidence" in our faces and we still
wouldn't vaccinate our kids.
