A faked study linking vaccines and autism is being eviscerated by scientists

A faked study linking vaccines and autism is being eviscerated by scientists

As for how the mistakes and falsifications got missed before they were published, Shaw says they're basically impossible to catch.

”When you look at these kinds of [data], unless you look at them under very, very high power and magnify them 20 times – which no one does, by the way – you would not necessarily see that there was anything untoward,"

Except, you know, the tons of actual scientists who discovered your bullshit almost immediately. Except for them, it’s basically impossible to find it. It’s almost like, if you create the error, and believe it wholeheartedly, it’s really difficult to find it yourself. How weird!

Controversy has erupted over a scientific paper that is being retracted after it was attacked for being 'antivax pseudoscience' and found to contain manipulated, false data… which has now gone mysteriously AWOL..

The research was led by a team of scientists under the supervision of Dr. J. McCarthy, known best for her work as a former B-list actress, model, and television host...

It's almost as if people used to have 10+ kids because most of them would die early.....

Humanity survived without vaccines. Plenty of humans didn't. There is a rather important distinction there.

The Spanish government argues that any referendum on Catalan independence would be illegal because the country's 1978 constitution makes no provision for a vote on self-determination.

The protests came as the constitutional court announced that it had annulled the Catalan law that had paved the way for the referendum.

The Catalan government says hundreds of people were hurt when Spanish police officers used force in an attempt to stop the referendum going ahead on 1 October.

The man who killed more than 300 people with a truck bomb in the centre of Mogadishu on Saturday was a former soldier in Somalia’s army whose home town was raided by local troops and US special forces two months ago in a controversial operation in which 10 civilians were killed

The man who killed more than 300 people with a truck bomb in the centre of Mogadishu on Saturday ...

The driver of the minivan:

Officials also said the driver was a veteran militant who had been involved in previous attacks in Mogadishu, including one on the Jazeera hotel in 2012 in which eight people died.

The driver of the larger vehicle:

Officials said the driver had joined the army in 2010 but defected from his military post to join al-Shabaab around five years later.

Apparently not recently radicalized, Unless he was psychic and knew what was going to happen in August. But that would create a time paradox and this isn't a sci-fi thread.

He was radicalized well before the raid. Stop trying to push an agenda when there isn't one. I really don't see what the alternative to fighting terrorism is, especially when there are so many examples of what happens when terrorism goes unchecked.

So he's upset that civilians were killed so he killed more civilians? Sounds like someone is trying to push a weak narrative.

Um so he committed a terrorist attack in 201 2 and still stayed in the army for another 3 years before leaving in 2015?
