Charles on Vaccines, Herd Immunity & The Dark Ages

While wading through the LGF Archives for something entirely unrelated, I found this tidbit, and it’s somewhat relevant to current events.

Charles was referring to some people (and Jenny McCarthy in particular) who erroneously believe measles vaccines cause autism in children. Besides having to explain herd immunity to the unwashed lizards, he proves that he doesn’t know diddly about the Dark Ages, and seems to think that vaccines were available in that era.

“Some English historians will say if there is any kind of
Dark Ages’ in medieval history, it is during the earliest part of the Middle Ages, right after the fall of Roman power in Britain around the fifth and sixth centuries. Its a period that has few surviving written sources, so we don’t know very much about what happened then.”

That’s the generally accepted definition of “The Dark Ages,” a period in medieval times that have few written records, but you all knew that. I noticed that Charles refers to them often, and usually out of context, so perhaps a visual exhibit might be in order:


Charles, your knowledge of The Dark Ages seems limited to Monty Python movies, so you might want to read up a bit.
