Re: Still off-topic

It is very sad if David Colquhoun can only defend his beliefs by
attacking people, whether "air-headed celebrities" or "anti-vaxers'. This
is just a strategy for pre-empting discussion of the science, or what
happened to a great number of children under their parents' noses. I have
pointed out the gaping holes in the scientific record - the flawed studies
and the brusquely ignored children - the basis of my progressive
disillusion. And he is quite wrong if he thinks I am looking for someone
to blame - I am looking for the truth, because in the end only that will
do any good.
