The science is overwhelming that the vaccines work and that those who refuse to take them endanger themselves and others. End of story.
When asked to comment on Bishop Berkeley's 18th century theory that the material world doesn't really exist (and the corollary that Newtonian physics was incorrect), Dr. Johnson went over to a large rock and started beating his head against it until he started to bleed. "I refute it thus!" Johnson exclaimed.
I guess you could say I understand science somewhat. I was an Air Force meteorologist. A staff weather officer back in the day. On the way to getting my bachelor of science (even though it was in mathematics) I do remember studying the scientific method. I later earned a master’s of science in education. Taught at various levels k-12, also and I including was a college facilitator in the past.
I am also a Christian. Started going to Sunday school maybe 55 years ago when I was in kindergarten. The Christian Bible has 66 different books starting with Genesis and ending with Revelations. I bring that up to interject the idea of a Creator or divinity responsible for what we mortals can only best describe scientifically.
I remember Newton’s laws of physics. I’m sort of familiar with quantum physics. I’m no virologist But I do have a basic understanding of what the human genome is. DNA and RNA I’ve heard of. The science behind the coronavirus?
Now that I’ve said a whole Lotta nothing I will say that forcing everyone to take the vaccine would be one way for some end of times prophecy come true. Won’t go into mark of the beast. Will say that in theory a malevolent entity could make a vaccine that would wipe us out in time.
I have no opinion about anything. Thanks. I am double vaccinated.
Absolutely no one should be forcibly vaccinated.
