Why must uneducated people be able to talk?

I mean really. If you have not educated yourself on an issue, then why are you trying to give your input on a subject that you don't know anything about? Do you not realize how dumb you sound?
I am on several message boards. Granted, they are more "natural" parenting. But we get a lot of mainstream folks over there that just gasp with shock over things we say! And then proceed to give their input on every subject and have no idea what they are even talking about.
Oh yes, homeopathics are not helpful. Tell that to my daughter whose fever can be broke in 15 minutes with a dose that is not at all harmful to her body vs 3-4-6 doses of tylenol or ibuprophen that do nothing.
Every boy should be circumcised. Because it is necessary...see previous rants on that.
Vaccines, well of course they are totally safe, because if there were reactions, then surely the CDC would have that information on their site right? Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
Just because a doctor or nurse tells you something doesn't make it true. There is a whole world of information out there. Research you need to find yourself. If you have children, you need to be informed. You need to be educated. YOURSELF. Not just blindly following the information crammed down your throat.

Until you can say that you do really know, be quiet.
