(responding to the claim that vaccines don’t cause autism)
No offense, but that is UTTER BULLSHIT!
There is NO WAY IN HELL that "better diagnosing" accounts for autism going from 1 in 10,000 in the 1980s to 1 in 68 today. Not to mention the explosion of profoundly autistic kids who even Special Ed teachers since the 1980s have admitted have risen exponentially since they first started teaching.
And you are delusional if you think there are 1 in 68 people in their 60s and 70s and 80s who are autistic, non-verbal, not toilet trained in society -- and don't feed me the crap that that's because they used to be in institutions. Because most institutions were closed by Reagan in the 80s, so they'd be out in the real world now, and they are NOT. There are NOT 1 in 68 people in their 70s who are non-verbal autistics, because its NOT "better diagnosing" but something else. Something which solely because of profit and the "house of cards" the whole system is built on, the huge pink elephant in the room, is DELIBERATELY IGNORED!
So were we! You can find all of this, and more, on Fundies Say the Darndest Things!
