@trinsec when was the last time someone powered through a steaming plate of boomer memes and asked for seconds?
Vaccine testing takes years because funds and resources are limited. When all western nations pool together to find a solution to an existential problem, they got it done in a tenth of the time. That's not miraculous. That's economics. Turns out real life doesn't have a set loading screen like vidya, resources and effort get shit done quicker. ¯\_ (ツ) _/¯
An overwhelming amount of research evidence has explored the efficacy and safety of SARS-CoV-2 mRNA vaccines. Here's a brief list of citations which include a complete review of observational studies. Mind you these are just a small sample of the available research articles, but together these five have been cited by 500 other research articles.
Please tell me again how that one letter to the editor is proof that vaccines are evil.
@MirceaKitsune @mystik @MartinJJ why don't you put your time where your mouth is. The entry barrier to academic discourse is nil. Write up your dissenting opinion with proper citations and post it to a preprint server like https://www.medrxiv.org. Then send it to a journal for peer review (e.g. BMJ open). The whole process is free. Once your manuscript has been scrutinized, you can come back and tell us how many reps from political offices, think tanks and big pharma contacted you while twirling their mustaches.
@MartinJJ You mean the one that begins literally with, "dear editor," the one tagged as an open access comment?
@PhilSchedia @MartinJJ @mystik trying to answer what *science is* is a delineation problem and not a practical one. Not every screenshot and opinion piece is the david to the evil academic Goliath. The fact that some people blindly believe peer review is just scientists agreeing with each other is just an admission that they've never bothered to learn what's involved.
