Oh dear
"Christian Schools Australia chief executive Stephen O'Doherty told the ABC there is nothing wrong with singing an additional verse. "What sort of nation is it if somebody wants to stop young kids from singing that they want to be servants of their nation; they want to build community on the strong foundations of their belief in God?"" What, did the kids take a fucking vote or something? Stephen, what the hell are you on about? The kids are compelled to sing this tripe and you know it.

What Brian Martin fails to notice...
...is, firstly, that the AVN's continued misrepresentations of data, dissembling and outright lies makes "debating" the issue with them a fruitless exercise. A debate is worthless if one side deliberately lies to further their cause, and this is what the AVN does. Martin is extremely naive to suggest that this is an area in which civil debate would be productive. Secondly, immunology and epidemiology are areas in which the layman is likely to be lost, confused, mistaken and plain wrong. If there is to be a debate, it should be among qualified individuals, not among the misinformed public. Should there be a debate between civil engineers and uninformed laypeople about whether tapioca is a suitable material for bridge building? Thirdly, the AVN were investigated by appropriate authorities and found wanting. They are a danger to public health and continued abusers of charity and fair trading laws. They don't get a magical exemption from these because one backwater academic thinks they should.

Call to probe rant on vaccines

Beware Weiner's "evidence"
from: http://www.theaustralian.com.au/news/call-to-probe-rant-on-vaccines/story-e6frg6n6-1226116314545 AUSTRALIA'S health regulator is facing calls to investigate a prominent chiropractor who said vaccines contain "toxic poison". In a public talk, the Sydney chiropractor linked vaccines to asbestos, thalidomide and cigarettes, and said they contained bits of aborted fetus. The chiropractor backed the debunked research of deregistered British doctor Andrew Wakefield - which suggested the measles, mumps and rubella vaccine might cause autism - as "scientifically good". The parents and pregnant women who attended the talk in March were told "homeopathic vaccines" - which are regarded as scientific nonsense by most experts - were safer than conventional vaccines. The comments by Nimrod Weiner, who is vice-president of the Chiropractors Association of Australia (NSW), were recorded by Australian Doctor. They were condemned as "outrageous" yesterday by the Australian Medical Association. In his talk, Mr Weiner said vaccine makers grew germs such as the chicken pox virus "on human fetus, because it's the best medium to grow it on". "What happens is they take a scraping of that aborted fetus with the virus on it, and put that into the vaccine itself," he said. In fact, a federal government guide says while fetal cells are used to make some vaccines, these are the lab-grown descendants of cells taken from three fetuses aborted for medical reasons more than 40 years ago, since when no further fetuses have been used. Mr Weiner discussed the use of the mercury-containing preservative thiomersal in vaccines, saying that while some said this was safe, "it's important to remember people told us many different things were safe, such as asbestos and thalidomide and cigarettes - all of those things we know are harmful to us". "Experts tell us that mercury is safe, vaccines are safe, but there's rising evidence that's just not the case." Robert Booy, immunisation expert at the Children's Hospital in Westmead, Sydney, said the comments on mercury were "completely wrong" and individuals "can get more mercury from eating tuna out of tins than you can from vaccines". AMA president Steve Hambleton said the comments were "almost a textbook of everything you could say that's incorrect", and called on the Chiropractic Board of Australia to intervene. Adelaide chiropractor Phillip Donato, chairman of the Chiropractic Board of Australia - one of the 10 national registration boards that are part of the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency - said chiropractors were expected to offer advice that was "absolutely balanced, non-biased and evidence-based". "It appears at the very least that he (Mr Weiner) is misinformed, and at the worst may be providing misleading information," Mr Donato said. "We would encourage people to put in a notification (to the board), and we would deal with it." Mr Weiner declined to comment, referring questions from The Australian to a PR company, which said the Chiropractors Association of Australia (NSW) had no position on vaccination and "any comments that Nimrod Weiner may have made would be his private opinions, not those of the association".

At no point does Martin address the non-factual nature of the "speech" in question
The AVN have been demonstrated, repeatedly, to promulgate information that is palpably untrue. When challenged with evidence, Dorey's prefferred tactic is to delete the facts and persists in promulgating untruths. For example, Dorey's ability to spout convincing-counding statistics is untrammelled by her inability to correctly pass on such simple facts as the number of Childhood vaccinations in the Australian childhood schedule http://www.mycolleaguesareidiots.com/archive/2010/07/18/504.aspx Dorey was corrected with references, the corrections were summarily deleted. None were abusive. This is a blatant denial of facts in favour of flawed ideology. This behaviour, I was always led to believe, crosses the line from simple ignorance and stupidity into medacity and lies. The right to free speech is not a right to lie with impunity. In short, take your PoMo and shove it, Brian.

Warren Sipser is not a doctor
He is a chiropractor, not an MD. Chiropractors are not trained in immunology or vaccination issues and are not qualified to give advice thereon. Their industry body includes this in their code of conduct. Sipser's qualifications consist of a BSc in Applied Science, and a BSc in chiropractic. No sign of any qualification which would justify the title "doctor" there at all. Conventionally, "Doctor" is reserved for MDs, specialist medical doctors holding equivalent qualifications to an MD, or holders of PhDs. Sipser fulfills none of these criteria. Sadly, Australia's laws protecting the title "doctor" were changed in July 2010, making us one of the only modern countries without proper protection of this term. This makes it very important for Australians to examine the qualifications of claimed "doctors" carefully, and to report any misleading information found to the appropriate regulatory authority at a state or federal level. And please, Herald Sun/Telegraph - try and keep a lid on the irresponsible reporting.

An extremely apt title...
... but not for the reasons Meryl chose it The fact remains that Meryl's weakest area of expertise is still in the area of numbers. From her claims that a 12-vaccine childhood schedule actually consists of 31 vaccines to her claim that an ~85% prevention rate means "the vaccine did nothing", Meryl can always be relied upon for a game stab at lying with numbers. And again, here she is. First, she decides that an article from 12 years ago so comprehensively undermines the credibility of medicine that it's worth playing as a trump card. It's not. Then she decides to pontificate on how death rates are more accurate. They're not There are many reasons why not, but here's a mere sampling: Meryl's thesis is specifically about vaccines. Death rates are affected by far more variables than vaccine prophylaxis. The primary variable here is, crudely, medical science's ability to save the life of someone already infected. This has been improving for hundreds of years, and is the largest factor in death rates, but has zero effect on incidence. Simply put, the incidence rate can begin one year at 100 cases and 50 deaths, then a new intervention is found which saves 40 of those 50 dead people. The overall incidence may stay at 100 the next year, but the death rate has been cut to 1/5th of the original. Another reason is that death is not the only important outcome in a disease, though Meryl's black-and-white thinking processes perhaps believe it is. Many diseases cause permanent injury without necessarily causing death. Death rate, by definition, is useless here, and permanent injury is also affected by intervention. Yet another reason is that Vaccination is not the only prophylactic intervention. Under the heading of "improved hygiene" come prophylactic measures such as sewerage, water purification and filtration, quarantine measures and a raft of other variables. Even included here may be "improved standard of living". A child in a crowded, underfunded school is far more liklely to transmit infections than one in a well-funded, uncrowded, well-managed institution. The only way to prove a case for any prophylactic intervention is strict control of variables. If Meryl was a sheepdog and variables the sheep, we'd be waiting all day for her to get them into the pen. Meryl's thesis is not helped in any way by her narrow focus on crude death-rate variables. She has done nothing to control for confounding variables in any of her 30,000 foot overview, but then tries to conclude that these very same confounding variables are the sole cause of a decline in disease, while vaccination did nothing at all. Rather a long bow to draw given that the groundwork to prove that case has not even been attempted. No control for confounding variables means the case has not been, and can not be, made. F-, see SAVN after class for remedial study. The only lies in this post are flowing from Meryl's keyboard, like blue ice dripping from the jetliner of fail that is the AVN.

Quote from Meryl Dorey: "Mr McLeod and the others associated with his hate group have continually stated that I believe these outrageous and ridiculous statements. The reason they make this statement is because last year, I posted an article about the Swine Flu vaccine that was printed in the Pakistan Daily to my blog. According to them (and the page is no longer up so it is impossible for me to check the proof of this statement), there was a link to a website owned by a David Icke who believes the statements Mr McLeod attributes to me."

The original link might not work, but the page is still available here: http://www.daily.pk/flu-is-not-the-biggest-danger-its-the-vaccine-7471/ I think the issue here is that: Ken never said there was a "link to a website owned by a David Icke" - the "outrageous and ridiculous" statements were in the actual article Meryl Dorey linked to, not just reachable by clicking on links, but in the text of the freakin' article.

Unfortunately for Meryl, her claims don't stack up
Meryl claims in this blog that she did not breach her privacy policy (or Australian privacy law). Thing is, her claim doesn't seem to stack up. For instance, there's this blog post from a recipient of the email in question http://tashage.blogspot.com/2010/07/off-topic.html This blogger went so far as to contact Nick Haas at IMCV, who confirmed, twice, that Meryl had shared her mailing list with him, a clear breach. Further damning evidence, the email came from the vaccinationcouncil.org domain name, suggesting that they were sent by IMCV, and not by Meryl as she claims. These are serious allegations, make no mistake, and doubtless complaints to ACMA will be investigated in the fullness of time, however the response from IMCV is quite damning: It appears Meryl breached the privacy of her user base, and should have the courage to fess up rather than digging herself a deeper hole. I myself will be requesting a copy of the offending mail with headers intact, which will indicate from which email service the message originated. I think that will settle the debate once and for all.

There is no good evidence that homeopathic medicine offers any benefit beyond placebo.

That shorty awards votes are a matter of public record. Mike is in fact lying in this article on a couple of points "The voters for the opposition mostly had no idea who or what they were even voting for". Sure, some voters had these kind of reasons. I'm afraid @HealthRanger's supporters weren't better. Twitter search would be very useful, however Machine Gun Keyboard scanned some of the fake accounts voting for HealthRanger here http://machinegunkeyboard.com/healthranger_fakevotes.txt HealthRanger is also implying that he was in the lead when canned. Not true. Dr Rachael Dunlop had been in the lead for some time, despite the sockpuppetry employed by Mike Adams or his supporters. Still, this is what we've come to expect from Adams. His supporters have now redeployed in support of @mercola, apparently not realising that they're placing their second-favourite candidate in the same illegitimate-vote position as @HealthRanger. Gullible is as gullible does, I'm afraid.

More whining from a natural health advocate
Oh, the laughter. Shorty votes are a matter of public record, and shorty rules state that accounts created solely for voting are against the rules. The fact remains that the majority of Adams's votes in the latter part of the voting came from these newly created accounts. Breach of rules, clearly. Whether it was Adams himself creating them or his supporters, the result is the same: vote fraud. Adams's shrill cries of fraud are indicative of a man who knows he's been caught out.

Natural Health Quack spits dummy, accuses awards of fraud
@HealthRanger, Mike Adams's Twitter account, was removed from Shorty Award voting when it emerged that rampant sockpuppetry was being employed either by Mike or by his followers. New accounts were being created every few minutes, used to vote for @HealthRanger, then abandoned. Shorty Awards management pulled Adams from the contest. He had a wig-out. Hilarity ensued. http://shortyawards.com/
