Bil Maher, anti-vaccine nut, claims Marco Rubio doesn’t believe in science
As Twitchy reported earlier today, Bill Maher got his facts wrong when he accused Marco Rubio of lying about the national debt.
However, we neglected to point out a second irony in Maher’s tweet. Maher claimed Rubio doesn’t believe in science, but Maher himself holds views about medicine that are … unusual, to say the least:
- He believes flu shots increase the risk of Alzheimer’s disease.
- He thinks polio was wiped out by improved sanitation, not the polio vaccine.
- He believes people get sick because of an “aggregate toxicity” in their bodies caused by pollution.
- He appears to believe that HIV does not cause AIDS.
New Rule: Anti-science lunatics should stop pretending they know more about science than the rest of us.
