Dying to Believe

Some more of the same

Tuesday again and another reminder that:

  • It’s not only Jesus who kills.
  • Human stupidity is one of the most deadly forces working.

From CNN early in May:

Anti-vaccine groups blamed in Minnesota measles outbreak

It would be comforting to believe this is a case of immigrants being ignorant, but the truth is that anti-vaccine nonsense is ripe in solidly Anglo-American culture. Since stupidity appears to not be inherited but is an acquired trait, Darwin is not going to solve this problem.
