I believe that I put '' around opinion- voila 'opinion' - tongue in cheek, as it were.But we're not really talking about opinions here. We're talking about assertions of fact. An opinion would be something like "Trump's hair is ridiculous." One can agree or disagree, since that's ultimately a matter of taste, and there's no way to establish whether, as a matter of fact, it's ridiculous. By comparison, if I said "70% of poll respondents called Trump's hair ridiculous," that's an assertion of fact. Either there was a poll backing that up, or there wasn't.
Similarly, the Salk polio vaccine did, as a simple matter of verifiable fact, have some bad batches with improperly inactivated viruses (one of my assertions of fact).
So, it strikes me as a cop-out to simply say "I dispute (or 'despute,' for the spelling-impaired) that opinion," when it's not actually an opinion. It's an assertion that something happened, which either did or did not happen.
Which specific authorities say that the 1918 pandemic was caused by vaccination? Please provide particular names.
Anyway, the reality is that premature mortality due to transmissible disease has gone down DRASTICALLY in the era of vaccinations, and in some cases we've completely eliminated some viruses that were once major killers of humans. Smallpox, for example, had been preying on humans since the earliest historical eras, at least. In 18th century Europe, it was killing almost half a million people per year, year after year, generation after generation. Then inoculation came along, with increasingly advanced vaccines, and it was completely eliminated. It's been almost half a century since the last person died of small pox.
If you had argued this argument as often as I have and for as many years as I have on line - 'I dispute' is actually quite generous of me 'cos all I actually feel like doing is walk away from this idiocy which traps people into Big Pharma's clutches by their man-made 'virus' etc. My ' dispute' gives you more of a chance to hone your argument ---- which I will disagree with no doubt but you are obviously enjoying youself --- so carry on.
I'll find you some names later .....
