Re: [Phys-L] vaccine deniers and per


Bernard has some interesting thoughts that are not always about physics.
But, in this case, there are numerous relevant science and science
education topics that overlap. Doing science is also about communicating
science. The "scientific method" doesn't offer much nuance when it comes
to good communication. Whether it's vaccines, global warming, flat earth,
or anti-gravity, we're all going to have these discussions at some point.
For those who set themselves up to be the spokespeople for science, this
offers guidance to take some care in understanding the critics perspective
and doing the best to explain well.

New here so just a sincere question:

is this germane to the purpose of this listserve? Also: a simple argument
from data and actual scientific evidence (as in: the output of the actual
scientific method) should both suffice as well as be a possible broader
lesson and reminder.

The clinical data from Pfizer - the same they fought hard to keep from
releasing for 75 years, alongside the US FDA that was ostensibly regulating
them) is freely available, updated monthly with each c.500pg court-ordered
release 'package', and easy to search:
