Jeffrey Kluger at TIME:

"[H]ere’s the thing the anti-vaxxers need to know, for the one billionth time: You’re wrong. Really, it’s that simple. You’re trafficking in junk science, in thoroughly debunked science, in the dizzy stuff of rumor mills and conspiracy theories. And about nature? “Messing with nature” is the whole point of medicine, given that it’s nature that cooked up every disease that ever existed. You want pure nature? OK, die young."
Parents who oppose vaccines are not only misinformed, they're spoiled, having grown up in a world that stands behind the berms built by the scientists and vaccine developers who came before them.

Writer, rhetoric/composition teacher, speaker, blogger, skeptic, & atheist. Analytical yet sentimental.
Introduction
Hello! I’m Miranda. I’m smitten with and fascinated by words.

I’m a writer, rhetoric/composition teacher, speakerblogger, researcher, skeptic, & atheist.

On my blog and elsewhere, I write about a variety of topics related to rhetoric, skepticism, atheism, language, writing, literature, politics, and the negative effects of childhood religious indoctrination.

I'm currently looking for employment in fields related to writing, research, editing, or teaching, and am also interested in writing and speaking opportunities. My resume is available here

And I may be the love child of the Fourth Doctor and Sarah Jane Smith. I'm still waiting to hear back from the Gallifrey DNA lab. Fingers crossed! ;)
