I have touched on this subject before (here and here) but this does bare pointing out. It is being reported that the always highly dubious 1998 study that linked vaccinations with autism has had the final nail hammered into it’s coffin; The British Medical Journal has stated the study is “an elaborate fraud”. This is far from surprising though I dare say it shall be ignored by those who claim vaccinations are dangerous, despite the incredible lack of evidence to back such a claim.

A story coming out of Glasgow caught my eye just now, one regarding a modern art gallery holding an exhibition titled “Made in God’s Image”.

Of course, they reach this conclusion without actually thinking the matter through at all.

As a result, the teacher of that class has since been suspended pending an investigation.
