Announcing a new Meetup for Asheville Skeptics!

What: Asheville Skeptics: Vaccination Shooting Gallery, bring your own works!

When: September 30,[masked]:30 PM

13 W Walnut St
Asheville, NC 28803

Fellow Skeptics, grab your needles and head downtown for for a thrilling evening of virus busting at Scully's!

When I'm feeling a little less skeptical, complacent with the world, tolerant of alternative health gurus and snake oil pitchmen, all I need do is check my Facebook account. This afternoon up pops a heated thread from fellow Ashevillians decrying the evils of pediatric vaccinations as harmful vectors of autism and dreaded government control.

I know that this city harbors a fair number of these parasites, who rely on herd immunity and cite that as proof that their precious little dreadlocked rug rat is too pure to be sullied with the vaccines from evil Big Pharma, and I find 'em a little puke making at the moment. The impetus for this latest inflammation of the jello-brained parental units is this piece of incendiary junk from the Citizen Times. This story has a lot to offer in illustrating intellectual fallacies in medicine, and I'm more than happy to have a couple dozen drinks and talk about them all.

Plus, I wanna' hear the recon from the chiropractor's pitch session and see if Keith's spine survived the ordeal, or if he suffered a stroke from spinal manipulation.

Howdy, and a shout out to new members who are encouraged to come and experience my bitterness, disdain and intoxicated scorn for all things woo.
