Yes true, but I'm saying that cognitive dissonance is more present in religious people than others. I remember reading about in "Moonwalking with Einstein" and it's possible to cope with as long as you're willing to admit you're wrong, which is a very rare trade in religious people.

I'm not defending atheists, I'm saying that religious people will always come up with an argument to why their ideas don't hold water, even when everything is speaking them. It's definitely an idealogical problem, otherwise science wouldn't be a thing.

I know what you're saying, but I'm telling you it's wrong. Commitment to current beliefs is purely psychological. What you described is called coping with cognitive dissonance. It's innate to everyone, regardless of their particular ideology. So, when you say, "religious people do this," you're not generalizing enough. You do it, too.

So at what point does a person's actions have repercussions for others? I care about pragmatism, not feelings.

Me too, but here are some examples of when a person's actions have repercussions:

1. When you intentionally give someone a disease.
2. When you inject someone with a substance for their own good, or "for the greater good".
3. When you shoot someone for giving you measles.

If vaccines work so well, your kid should be fine. The truth is, they don't. You can actually contract and spread diseases from vaccines, or they can simply fail to immunize. That doesn't matter though. Good ends cannot be achieved through bad means. When we start telling other people in society how to live their lives, people will start telling us how to live ours.

Infecting the involuntarily unvaccinated with a contagious disease because you chose not to get vaccinated is using force against them. You are literally harming them by your own volition.

If you really want absolute freedom, I'm game, but be ready for a bullet to the head if you give my kid measles.

Except people not vaccinating does impact others. It fucks over people with serious medical conditions that prevent them from getting vaccinated. There are so, so many things that these people could choose to do that don't harm others, yet they opt for this because they're either paranoid, willfully ignorant or want to feel special and independent.

It's like if a man burns his own house to the ground that only he owns, and causes fire to spread to nearby houses in the neighborhood, then tries to ban the fire department for infringing on his civil liberties,
#78563 - cabbagemayhem (02/24/2015) [-]
No, that's not why people are against it at all. It has to do with fundamental freedom. Most of us still vaccinate, but we're not going to force someone else to if they don't want to. I'm not going to permanently sacrifice the freedom of millions of people on the chance it might save a handful of exceptions.
