yay! measles are FUN!

Posted: February 9, 2015 in bad science, science-ish

Melanie’s Marvelous Measles was written to convince children and their parents that it’s ok to not get vaccinated.


Here’s the author describing her book:

Melanie’s Marvelous Measles was written to educate children on the benefits of having measles and how you can heal from the naturally and successfully. Often today, we are being bombarded with messages from vested interests to fear all disases in order for someone to sell some potion or vaccines, when, in fact, history shows that in industrialised countries, these diseases are quite benign, and, according to natural health sources, beneficial to the body.

Having raised three children vaccine-free and childhood disease-free, I have experienced many times when my children’s vaccinated peers succumb to the childhood diseases they were vaccinated against. Surprisingly, there were times when my unvaccinated children were blamed for their peers’ sickess. Something which is just not possible when they didn’t have the diseases at all.

The review for this book on Amazon have been amazing!

This reviewer was disappointed that there was no Braille version.



This reviewer was grateful the author provided them with an easy way to explain to their kids why they should get incredibly dangerous diseases.


This carpenter was grateful for the extra work the book gave her.


This reviewer suggested more books by the same author.




Using religion to brutalize other people is not a Muslim invention, nor is it foreign to the American experience.

And President Obama has never been one to go easy on America.

As a new president, he dismissed the idea of American exceptionalism, noting that Greeks think their country is special, too. He labeled the Bush-era interrogation practices, euphemistically called “harsh” for years, as torture. America, he has suggested, has much to answer given its history in Latin America and the Middle East.

Humanity has been grappling with these questions throughout human history.  And lest we get on our high horse and think this is unique to some other place, remember that during the Crusades and the Inquisition, people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ. In our home country, slavery and Jim Crow all too often was justified in the name of Christ.

Examples of true stuff
  • 10309192_380985722026469_5178060331706932765_nVaccines do not cause autism or mental retardation.  Proven fact.
  • The climate is warming up.  Fact.
  • Human activity is contributing to the warming of the climate.  Fact.
  • Most living creatures (including humans) will suffer in many, many ways as the climate warms.  Duh.
  • The earth is not 6,000-10,000 years old.  It is around 4.5 billion years old.  Regardless of how many “generations” are listed in your religion’s holy book.
  • Certain economic policies, usually associated with more liberal politicians, tend to improve our economy.  Certain other economic policies, usually associated with more conservative politicians, tend to harm our economy.
  • Rape really is a thing. Benghazi really wasn’t. Our Constitution was not based on the Bible. Most homosexuals didn’t “choose” their sexuality. These things are just true, despite the stuff that Fox “News” bombards its viewers with.

10940990_10205877078512706_7880031694690054037_nWhat I find in my work with people is that a lot of folks, instead of seeking truth, want reassurance that what they already believe is true.

What science has recently revealed, also, is that some brains are more geared toward allowing new facts to adjust their belief system, while other brains are geared toward defending against changes in beliefs by rejecting facts.

What if we took our lead from the Enlightenment thinkers and based our opinions on facts, instead of on feelings, superstitions, ancient books, left or right-leaning news stations or paid-for-by-corporations-politicians?

America was founded as a Christian nation, and, frankly, I’m darn sick and tired of the constant assault on our religious freedoms from the gays, the minorities, and especially the ladies.

women-must-submit-to-men_women-must-serve-men-www.stepfordwife.comYes, you heard me – especially the ladies. What completely chaps my hide is how successful the women-folk have been in dragging us away from the Biblical values this great nation was founded upon. Everywhere you look nowadays you see chicks perverting the Biblical order of things by exercising leadership over men, participating in the complicated and sensitive political process, acting all uppity and equal to their husbands in marriages, wearing whatever the heck they want to wear (with no concern whatsoever over how their cleavage makes us men tingle), having sex when they choose to like men do, and worse.

Here’s some facts for you, Christian ladies…facts that I hope you will seriously consider:

  • The most common Biblical epithets for women are “harlot,” “whore,” and “unclean.” In fact, in most of your appearances in the Good Book, when you’re even mentioned at all, you are either superfluous or diabolical. Take a hint.
  • This is really important! Don’t forgot – YOU WERE AN AFTERTHOUGHT! You were designed to be a “help meet” for men! You wouldn’t even exist if it weren’t for us men – you were literally created out of a man’s spare rib!
  • And THEN you completely messed everything up. Eve was a sin-inciting, disobedient, impulsive, morally inferior seductress who literally led to the downfall of humankind.

We need to get back to a Biblically based, common sense society where everyone knows their place and stays within the parameters outlined for them in God’s holy Book. Some examples of your “place,” ladies:

1 Corinthians 11:3-7:
But I would have you know that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man…for a man…is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man.

1 Peter 2:12-13
I do not permit a woman to teach or to assume authority over a man; she must be quiet, for it was man who was first created, then woman. 

Ephesians 5:22-24
Wives, submit yourself unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the Church…therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in everything. 

1 Peter 3:1-6
Wives, in the same way submit yourselves to your husbands. Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and wearing of jewelry or fine clothes. Rather it should be that of your inner self, the unfolding beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight. For this is the way the holy women of the past who put their hope in God used to adorn themselves. They submitted to their husbands, like Sarah, who obeyed Abraham and called him “Lord.” 

women_in_the_bibleHear that, sweethearts? When was the last time you heard someone from the mainstream Godless liberal media encourage you to call your husbands “Lord?” Am I right?

(Side note: I don’t personally apply these particular passages to my own marriage, but only out of practical considerations. If I were to, my wife would cut off my testicles or leave me. Or both.)

Granted, the very next verse in 1 Peter does instruct husbands to treat their wives gently because they are “weaker vessels.” Kind of like how I treat my pets.

Even the Jesus’s mom was put in her place: Woman, what have I to do with thee?   (Jesus, John 20:17)

Still not convinced that women were basically created for men, to be men’s property?

The Bible makes it pretty dang clear that every aspect of women’s bodies and behaviors are subject to the scrutiny and control of men. The Good Book issues edicts over such matters as feminine hygiene, menstruation, pregnancy and more. No detail about women is too private or trite, from your periods (during which you are “unclean” for seven days) to your hairstyles to your housewifely duties to your conduct in church. (In 1 Corinthians, Paul says you’re to shut up at church, be submissive to your husbands, and wait until you get home to ask him questions.)

Another Jezebel mocking God's law.  She will burn.

Another Jezebel mocking God’s law. She will burn.

Back in the good old days daughters could be sold, women who had sex outside of marriage could be stoned or burned (their male partners got off scot-free), and women who did not have intact hymens on their wedding night were to be publically executed.

If a man raped a woman who was engaged to another man, both the rapist and the woman would be stoned to death. But if a man raped a women who was not already claimed as a man’s property (not engaged or married), the rapist was only required to pay the woman’s father fifty shekels of silver, and the women was forced to marry her rapist.

Clearly, the Bible defines women as men’s property. Why have we allowed our society to stray so far? Even the Ten Commandments lump women in with other possessions, such as asses. Women actually take second billing to inanimate objects, such as “they neighbor’s house” in the Exodus 20 variation.

Look, we are a Christian nation, founded on Christian principles. To the degree that we walk away from our religious heritage as a country, we play right into the hands of Satan. Remember, according to Sarah Palin and other right-thinking politicians, the Bible was the basis for our constitution – and it’s clear that in the Bible the weaker sex was placed on this earth for the purpose of meeting men’s needs and for men to have dominion over. Why have we allowed America to stray so far?

images-307This assault on Biblical values has been going on for over a hundred years now. Check out this whiny, self-indulgent, godless passage from an 1885 speech by the Feminazi Elizabeth Cady Stanton, the first woman to formally call for women’s right to vote:

You may go over the world and you will find that every form of religion which has breathed upon this earth has degraded woman. There is not one which has not made her subject to man. Men may rejoice in them because they make man the head of the woman. I have been traveling the old world during the last few years and have found new food for thought. What power is it that makes the Hindu woman burn herself on the funeral pyre of her husband? Her religion. What holds the Turkish woman in the harem? Her religion. By what power do the Mormons perpetuate their system of polygamy? By their religion. Man, of himself, could not do this; but when he declares, “Thus saith the lord,” of course he can do it. So long as ministers stand up and tell us that man is the head of the woman how are we to break the chains which have held women down through the ages? We want to help roll off from the soul of woman the terrible superstitions that have so long repressed and crushed her.

paulryan2Sheeple, don’t give in to this modern, liberal, anti-Christ rhetoric that seeks to pull you away from the one true religion and to destroy our country by stripping away our religious freedoms. Do everything possible to get us back on the straight and narrow as a nation: Pray, preach the true Word of God (not the liberal, pansy, “Christian-left” version), speak out against women’s “rights” whenever you can, and above all, vote Republican.

religion-505x320-672x298The struggle to define America, often referred to as the “Culture Wars,” continues today as it has since before the nation’s founding.  Throughout our history, conservative Christians have been the primary opposition to every single advance in equal rights and equal justice.  In each battle – over slavery, women’s suffrage, segregation and Jim Crow laws, and so on – once public opinion has turned completely in favor of progress, it is conveniently forgotten where that opposition came from.  And the same arguments, based on tradition and religious beliefs, are then recycled in the next battle.

If we are to define America by its loftiest ideals as a nation where everyone is given equal protection rather than one defined by Christian privilege to assert dominance over everyone else, it will only be because we have managed to limit the influence of the Christian right over legislatures and the courts.

Question! I have a question! A recent survey showed that 68% of white evangelicals b3892659W009 HUMAN RIGHTS ACT.jpgelieve ‘torture of suspected terrorists’ can be ‘often’ or ‘somewhat’ justified. Of those who said they had ‘no religion,’ only 41 percent said torture of suspects is often or somewhat justified. Please help me understand this. Anyone?
