Letter failed to provide any statistical data to support claims

Dear Editor,

I’m writing in response to Mr. Cool’s letter in the September 16 North Vernon Plain Dealer and Sun. As always Mr. Cool has no facts to back up his ridiculous rhetoric, not one. It’s simple mathematics, Stan, you should try it sometime.

Last year, 2020, the SARS-CoV2 virus or corona virus 19, killed 375,000 American citizens. Heart disease took nearly 700,000, followed by cancer at 480,000. Those numbers are from JAMA (Journal of the American Medical Association) and the CDC (Center for Disease Control and Prevention). By the way, Mr. Cool, smoking, drinking, poor eating and sedentary lifestyle are not causes of death. Neither are they listed on a death certificate. Try to learn more before you put pen to paper.

The SARS virus is no joke, it kills people. A vaccination is not an “experimental gene therapy.” If you’re interested in gene therapy look up Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeat, CRISPR for short. We can now edit and rewrite the genome of multicellular plants and animals. Evolution will never be the same.

Did you go to school, participate in military service, travel to a foreign country? If so, you received multiple vaccines for the betterment of the whole. I know that seems like a strange concept to some, but us Christians understand consideration towards others for the good of the whole.

You Trump lovers don’t care about doctors and scientists giving you the facts, yet you will believe some quack who gets rich selling worthless herbs and vitamins. You really need help.

Respectfully,

T.A. Smith
