References for “My Why” Post

I didn't figure many people would read my previous post, but it is being shared and I want to make sure I add proof for everything I stated for those of you who have the actual energy to look further and go deeper. Here is a graphic of each state and which still have religious,…

My Why

It has recently come to my attention that there might be people who feel targeted by the information I share, and I just want to clear the air completely in the off chance those who feel this way actually read this blog, which I have my doubts about, but if you're here and this is…

Pertussis Link Dump

Recent Pertussis Outbreaks: "The district was asked if unvaccinated students were the cause of the outbreak. The district says that's not the case. Less than half a percent of the student population is unvaccinated. None of those who tested positive for pertussis displayed symptoms." https://fox2now.com/2019/11/04/fifteen-students-test-positive-for-whooping-cough-at-festus-schools/?fbclid=IwAR0VIG5_-V7Ao4Yb9cuHbLmjLO8bOKylVshRO__1h85fFZxH__IMfCFpH_Q "Yen added that he knows the cases were present in…

Debating a Scientist

I was recently introduced to Jonathan Sarfati, a Creationist, young-earth scientist who is doing really good things in scientifically disproving evolution and the old earth theories.

Confessions

This is just going to be a mixed up, probably disjointed bit of thoughts I've been thinking lately, along with my story as pertains to this issue. First of all, I want to explain a little bit where I'm coming from. A long time ago (at least 10 years), someone gave my mom a pamphlet…

Pertussis explained

More commonly known as Whooping Cough. I have breathed a sigh of relief as both my boys pass the 4 month mark because I know it is most dangerous in newborns because of how difficult it is for them to cough strongly enough to work up the mucous. This disease was the one I struggled…

The Great Conspiracy

"Vaccines Are Totally Safe Say the People Who Brought Us Vioxx, Bextra, Baycol, Trovan, Phen-Fen, Xarelto, Raxar, and Seldane..." This was the title of an article on Huffpost in 2017 that was quickly censored almost as soon as it was published. Have you ever wondered what goes on in the mind of an anti-vaxxer? What…
