I thought that Prof. Skidmore’s survey, from which he extrapolated an estimate of 278K killed by COVID-19 vaccines was the worst survey ever. I was wrong. Steve Kirsch has Skidmore beat by a country mile.
Tech bro turned COVID-19 conspiracy theorist and antivaxxer is back spreading more misinformation about vaccines and SIDS.
Antivaxxers have long claimed that childhood vaccines cause sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). Now “new school” antivaxxer Steve Kirsch has resurrected this hoary old lie using the thinnest of evidence plus a lot of handwaving.
Steve Kirsch is known for his ludicrous challenges issued to vaccine advocates to “debate” vaccines. Now he wants to “collaborate” with provaccine scientists to test whether vaccines cause autism. His proposal is equally ludicrous.
Litigious bully Steve Kirsch responds to Orac’s post calling him a litigious bully. Orac obliges Kirsch with one most likely final response because Kirsch’s denials demonstrate important psychology.
