Skeptics Guide to the Universe conveniently glosses over Mercury when discussing the universe

LOS ANGELES, CA – Controversy is surrounding the members of The Skeptics Guide to the Universe (SGU) after a recent podcast talking about our solar system. SGU is a group of skeptics which comprises such Pharma Shills as Jay and Steve Novella, Evan Bernstein and has as a regular guest the vaccine industrialist and breast-obsessed oncologist David “Orac” Gorski.

So it was no surprise when the group was recently discussing the universe and planets and completely glossed over Mercury. All members of the panel have expressed how they feel Mercury is “not a problem” and is not responsible for the rise in autism spectrum disorder diagnoses over the past 10-20 years.

“We give Mercury just as much attention as any other planet,” said Steve Novella. “I think the anti-vaccine crowd is a little confused again.”

The anti-vaccine advocates are not taking this explanation or this issue lying down and have begun flooding the SGU Facebook page with comments.

“They still refuse to believe that Mercury has anything to do with autism, even after so many anti-science blogs have proven that it does,” said Tanners Dad, Tim. “They said they took Mercury out of all vaccines, but it’s still in some flu vaccines. I may not have a fancy science degree, but I do play chess. Check mate science.”

Reports indicate that the SGU panel members still have no intention of investigating the connection between Mercury and autism.
