smallpox [#2782]
« on: December 03, 2013, 07:23:22 AM »
Your website makes at least two references to smallpox being cured in the 20th century (explicitly 1950).  You have the wrong disease...I think you mean polio.  The smallpox vaccine was invented/discovered in the early 19th century.  You might also consider adding bubonic plague - it killed 1/3 of Europe in the midst of a religious hysteria.

Smallpox was cured? I know there's a vaccination but that was first developed in the 18th century, no?

Anyway...

This thread is about lab-grown dicks, not some mincy, old, British poof of an actor. 

Let's get back on topic, please.

Smallpox was cured?

Yes, the disease was officially declared eradicated in December 1979

Anywho I don't really see what the OP has to do with the existence of god, whether the vaccine was discovered in 1700 or 2000 it was still a human that found it.

Nothing, but less inacuracies strengthens one's claim.
An Omnipowerful God needed to sacrifice himself to himself (but only for a long weekend) in order to avert his own wrath against his own creations who he made in a manner knowing that they weren't going to live up to his standards.

And you should feel guilty for this. Give me money.
