Science may be self-correecting but the public is not conditioned for that and in additon, some people have a "natural suspicion" of authority was certain types of assertions are made.
Especially assertions of absolute certainty in gods and their miracles.
Agree but not fully convinced of the relativince of that in this case.
(I've been however since convinced that ONE of these people is a whack job tho; her belief showing signs of some pseudo science but at the core of it, there is still a basic cause/co-elation fallacy. I stand open to finding more whack jobiness in her beliefs but I'm more interested in the idea that misinformatin often starts with a grain of truth
. In this case, there existed a flawed study, since discredited and autism is typically found after children develop language skills
That is a bunch of non-scientists "observe" that there kids get autism "shortly after getting their vaccines". Thier natural suspicion of authority (aka conspiracy theory syndrome) prevents them from listening to what the subsequent scientists have said in context.
