SEATTLE, WA – Local man Andrew Deltmor, 36, spent the better part of the weekend “researching” vaccines and now feels confident he knows more than most people on the subject, including medical doctors.
“I wanted to see what all the fuss was about with this whole measles thing,” explained Deltmor. “So I hunkered down in my mom’s basement and went to work. I read a bunch of articles on vaccines and the MMR in particular and now I know everything there is to know.”
Deltmor confirmed to The Science Post that he is now staunchly anti-vaccine.
“After reading what I read, I don’t see how anyone could not be against vaccines,” he said. “I started out reading a bunch of scientific studies but I didn’t really understand them. So instead I just Googled “Vaccines bad” and went from there. I ended up spending most of my time on Natural News, Info Wars and Age of Autism.”
This is a common theme through the anti-vaccine world. Anti-vaccers often find themselves unable to understand or interpret science and statistics so instead rely on conspiracy blogs.
“It’s just easier that way,” laughed anti-vaccer Toni Barck. “I always have trouble with the fancy maths so I just stick to the easy conspiracy sites.”
Mr. Deltmor is currently working on his own blog as well as schooling scientists and doctors on social media.
