How conspiracy theories threaten vaccination programs | Henry de Vries | TEDxNSPOH
 
14:03
Every year 600 women in the Netherlands die from cervical cancer. With the HPV vaccination, this number could be brought back to 200 women. On one condition: enough women should be vaccinated. Anno 2018, vaccination coverage is low. Conspiracy theories of the anti-vaxxers reinforce this decline. It's time to stop targeted attacks on life saving vaccination programs. Learn how in Henry de Vries' Talk. Henry works as a dermatologist at the STI clinic of GGD Amsterdam and Amsterdam UMC. He holds an PhD, is a member of the HPV committee at the Health Council and speaking on personal title. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx

The Science of Anti-Vaccination

Fewer children in the United States are getting vaccinated. That’s bad news for those kids, and also for public health in general. Often, the response is to argue and debate and get angry at people who are we see as making terrible, irrational decisions. Instead of doing that, let’s use science to understand why this is happening in the first place. Hosted by: Hank Green ---------- Like SciShow?

How Trump & Republicans Keep Spreading Misinformation About Vaccines | NowThis
 
03:01
The U.S. is experiencing its largest measles outbreak since 2000 — and these Republicans keep spreading misinformation about life-saving vaccines. » Subscribe to NowThis: http://go.nowth.is/News_Subscribe Vaccines and vaccination have the power to save lives, but President Trump and his fellow Republicans continue to spread misinformation about measles, autism, vaccine science, and more. Several current GOP officeholders have said really dumb things about vaccination. Donald Trump has echoed the conspiracy theory that vaccines cause autism. TRUMP: And we’ve had so many instances, people that work for me just the other day, 2 years old, two and a half years old, the child the beautiful child, went to have the vaccine, and came back, and a week later got a tremendous fever, got very very sick, now he’s autistic. North Carolina rep. Mark Green echoed the same debunked claim. GREEN: There is some concern that the rise in autism is a result of the preservatives in our vaccines. Green, once Trump’s nominee for Army Secretary, has also argued against climate science, LGBTQ rights, and evolution. TX state rep. Bill Zedler said measles won’t cause deaths in the U.S. “They want to say people are dying of measles. Yeah, in third-world countries they’re dying of measles,” Zedler said, shaking his head. “Today, with antibiotics and that kind of stuff, they’re not dying in America.” - Texas Observer Measles is a virus. Antibiotics treat bacterial infections. There is no treatment for measles. Zedler went on to say “This is not the Soviet Union, you know.” Arizona state rep. Kelly Townsend also linked vaccination to communism. OK Governor Kevin Stitt made this statement on vaccination. STITT: So under vaccines, you know I believe in choice. And we’ve got six children, and we don’t vaccinate, we don’t do vaccinations on all of our children. Then walked it back. STITT: What I’m learning in politics is your opponents will try to twist things around. But the fact is I vaccinated all six of my children. What I said was, vaccinations are between a parent and their pediatrician. There are anti-vaccine proponents on the left as well, notably Jill Stein and Robert Kennedy Jr., neither of whom hold elected office. #Trump #Republicans #GOP #Vaccines Connect with NowThis » Like us on Facebook: http://go.nowth.is/News_Facebook » Tweet us on Twitter: http://go.nowth.is/News_Twitter » Follow us on Instagram: http://go.nowth.is/News_Instagram » Find us on Snapchat Discover: http://go.nowth.is/News_Snapchat NowThis is your premier news outlet providing you with all the videos you need to stay up to date on all the latest in trending news.

FRONTLINE | The Vaccine War | PBS
 
54:02
http://www.pbs.org/specials/depth-vaccines/ Examining the emotionally charged debate over medical risks versus benefits and a parent's right to make choices about her child versus a communities common good. (Originally broadcast in April, 2010) Vaccines have changed the world, largely eradicating a series of terrible diseases, from smallpox to polio to diphtheria, and likely adding decades to most of our life spans. But despite the gains -- and numerous scientific studies indicating vaccine safety -- a growing movement of parents remains fearful of vaccines. And in some American communities, significant numbers of parents have been rejecting vaccines altogether, raising new concerns about the return of vaccine-preventable diseases like measles and whooping cough. In The Vaccine War (originally broadcast on PBS in April 2010) FRONTLINE lays bare the science of vaccine safety and examines the increasingly bitter debate between the public health establishment and a formidable populist coalition of parents, celebrities, politicians and activists who are armed with the latest social media tools -- including Facebook, YouTube and Twitter -- and are determined to resist pressure from the medical and public health establishments to vaccinate, despite established scientific consensus about vaccine safety.

New figures show more than half a million children in the UK weren't vaccinated against measles over an eight-year period. Unicef says it's trying to fight the so-called "anti-vax" movement, which wrongly believes the jabs are harmful.

Bill Nye on Conspiracy Theorists: NASA's Moon Landing, Vaccines, Astrology, and Tarot Cards
 
03:41
If you're interested in licensing this or any other Big Think clip for commercial or private use, contact our licensing partner Executive Interviews: https://www.executiveinterviews.biz/contact-us/americas/ Denial comes in all flavors. Some think the moon landing was staged, some think Tupac is alive, and others reject vaccines. If the United States learnt anything in the 2016 election, it's that social bubbles need to be broken down — so how do you reason with someone who ignores evidence or bends it to fit their worldview? This has been on Bill Nye's mind more and more since climate change denial has become a political issue rather than a scientific one. People can't change their minds instantly when their beliefs are ingrained, so it's not a matter of convincing them on the spot. Nye suggests working together towards scientific understanding by tactfully pointing out that perhaps this person is rejecting evidence because the alternative makes them uncomfortable. Understanding is a process, not a flip switch. Bill Nye's most recent book is Unstoppable: Harnessing Science to Change the World.

This is to say you have a world view; You’re presented with evidence that conflicts with the world view; So you either have to change your world view, which is hard because you’ve lived your whole life with it, or you just dismiss the evidence and dismiss the authorities that may have provided the evidence. The authority could be a person or it could be a book. Or, excuse me, an article on the electric-internet-computer-machine. So you dismiss the evidence, so that you don’t have this discomfort or conflict in your mind—this dissonance. That’s what I’m working with right now, and apparently the way to overcome that is to say, “We’re all in this together, let’s learn about this together.” Present the conspiracy theorist with the idea that he or she may be rejecting evidence because it’s just so uncomfortable. And you’re in it together. We’re in it together. I’m uncomfortable too. But when it comes to moon landings, just ask the person how you would generate all that paperwork! The warehouses full of documentation that NASA created to make landings on the moon would overwhelm anybody trying to do it on the side. It would just be very difficult to print all that. And just understand it’s a process. Somebody who has a world view that’s inconsistent with evidence—and I may have some—it takes a while for you to turn around. Like the example of palm reading it’s not something that people reverse their ideas on immediately. It takes, in my experience it takes about two years for somebody to sort of look at palm reading, look at cold-reading or a tarot card reading for a while and then realize that these tarot card readers/palm readers are just taking information that you’ve given them, the client has given them, and feeding it back to you. It takes a long time and in the same way people who are anti-vaccine I think have just lost sight of the history. Vaccines—you know, part of the reason I’m able to be here talking with you is my grandparents did not die in 1918 during the Spanish flu when it is estimated 50 million people died—Twice as many people as were killed in combat in World War I died of this disease. If you go to old cemeteries you can see these tombstones of very young people who died of the flu. So people just lost sight of history, and we all tend to go, “Well look at the facts. Change your mind!” But it takes people a couple of years to change their mind. So my recommendation, Daniel, is: stick with it! You’ll get frustrated, the person will get frustrated, but present the idea of cognitive dissonance. This is my latest idea about a way to work together to a scientific understanding.

Top 10 CONSPIRACY Theories About MEDICINE
 
14:30
These days, if you want information, it’s right at your fingertips. In some ways this has been a very good thing. But it’s also given rise to a platform for any insane idea, and for anyone who is trying to make a buck. With all this information so easily accessible, it’s made many of us feel like we’re experts after a little Googling. It doesn’t matter if we have little real familiarity with a subject. This has helped give rise to an industry of hucksters who decry mainstream medicine, touting instead their alternative cures that they will happily supply to you — for the right price. Unfortunately, these con routines have caused a lot of people to distrust mainstream medicine. This distrust has spawned all manner of bizarre conspiracy theories. →Subscribe for new videos every day! https://www.youtube.com/user/toptenznet?sub_confirmation=1 → → GET A T-SHIRT - http://shop.spreadshirt.com/toptenz →Top 10 Objects That Were Clearly Invented Just to Annoy Physics: https://youtu.be/0MVGeRa-vLo →Simon's VLOG: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCvqt8j7DfPmveJp3UOk9XTg Entertaining and educational top 10 lists from TopTenzNet!

The Anti-Vaccination Movement: Replacing Science with Superstition
 
01:06:14
Dr. Greg Forbes, GRCC Biology Professor, presents that more than 2 centuries have passed since the first vaccines were used to prevent disease and the disabilities and death associated with these diseases. However, even after the prevention of many millions of deaths, vaccine skeptics and vaccine conspiracy theories appear to be increasing in frequency even in the light of a proponderous of scientific fact validating the efficacy and safety of vaccines. This presentation will provide an overview of how vaccines provide protection from disease, how vaccines are manufactured and will review the claims from the anti-vaccine skeptics. These claims will then be addressed utilizing the body of scientific knowledge acquired over the last 2 centuries as well as contemporary research. A comparison of the anti-vaccine movement will then be made to similar anti-science beliefs such as climate change denial, anti-evolutionism and young Earth geology.

In Afghanistan, conspiracy theories fuel polio outbreak | AFP

In the past decade, the numbers of people infected with polio declined from a high of 80 in 2011 to 13 in 2016. But last year there was a jump in new cases with 21 reported across Afghanistan. Polio immunisation is compulsory in Afghanistan, but distrust of vaccines is rife, and the programmes are difficult to enforce particularly in rural regions.

Study On Vaccine Conspiracy Theorists Reveals...
 
30:32
Support our channel, become a patron and help us build a better Nation: http://www.patreon.com/TYTNation A new study published in the journal Pediatrics that said that arguing with anti-vaxxers is pretty much useless. This was a study done by political scientist Brendan Nyhan of Dartmouth college and three of his colleagues. These authors did a previous study that showed that when a conservatives read a fake a newspaper article containing a quotation of George W. Bush asserting that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction, followed by a factual correction stating that this was not actually true, they believed Bush's falsehood more strongly afterwards—an outcome that Nyhan and Reifler dubbed a "backfire effect." This study tested the effectiveness of four pro-vaccine messages. Their results, not a single one of those messages was successful in increasing parent's intent to vaccinate their kids. And in some cases, those messages made people less likely. Recent research suggests that a conspiratorial, paranoid mindset prevails among some antivaxxers. That research published in the journal Plos one found links between conspiratorial thinking between not only vaccines but climate change and GMO's. So if you're a conspiracy theorist, according to this previous study, you're more likely to be against vaccines, gmo's and climate science. But vaccines scored the highest. The study says "People who tend toward conspiratorial thinking are three times more likely to reject vaccinations," compared to those sample people questioned about GMO's and climate change. Three times more than both of those. So what were those four pro-vaccine messages that were used? One was called Autism Correction, and motherjones explains it as a "factual, science-heavy correction of false claims that the MMR vaccine causes autism, assuring parents that the vaccine is "safe and effective" and citing multiple studies that disprove claims of an autism link. The second message, dubbed "Disease risks," simply listed the many risks of contracting the measles, the mumps, or rubella, describing the nasty complications that can come with these diseases. The third message, dubbed "Disease narrative," told a "true story" about a 10-month-old whose temperature shot up to a terrifying 106 degrees after he contracted measles from another child in a pediatrician's waiting room. The final message was called disease images, where they showed images of children with Measles, mumps and rubella. The results showed that the least successful messages were the "Disease narrative" and "Disease images." Hearing the narrative actually increased respondents' likelihood of thinking that getting the MMR vaccine will cause serious side effects, from 7.7 percent to 13.8 percent. Similarly, looking at the images increased test subjects' belief that vaccines cause autism. Both of those messages backfired. As far as Autism correction, according to the study it worked as a whole to somewhat reduce belief that in the falsehood that vaccines cause autism, but it also decreased the % of parents saying they would vaccinate their kids. http://www.motherjones.com/environment/2014/02/vaccine-denial-psychology-backfire-effect http://www.motherjones.com/environment/2013/10/vaccine-denial-conspiracy-theories-gmos-climate TYT Community is proud to be a part of the TYT Network.

Michio Kaku: Why flat-Earth theory and anti-vax conspiracies exist

Nine times out of 10, your beliefs can be wrong, but one time out of 10 it saved your ancestors' butts, says Kaku. -Flat Earthers and anti-vaccination conspiracy theorists exist now, and they will still exist in 1,000 years, says Kaku. It's natural. Humans evolved to believe in nonsense, but it's by becoming good at something totally unnatural to us – science – that reason can prevail. Dr. Michio Kaku is the co-founder of string field theory, and is one of the most widely recognized scientists in the world today. He has written 4 New York Times Best Sellers, is the science correspondent for CBS This Morning and has hosted numerous science specials for BBC-TV, the Discovery/Science Channel. His radio show broadcasts to 100 radio stations every week. Dr. Kaku holds the Henry Semat Chair and Professorship in theoretical physics at the City College of New York (CUNY), where he has taught for over 25 years.

Website: http://www.sermonindex.net | Twitter: http://goo.gl/f9i0R The work and ministry of sermonindex can be encapsulated in this one word: REVIVAL. sermonindex is not a organisation, business, or any attempt by man to build something for God. It is rather a expression of a heart burden to see the Church revived and brought back to holiness, purity, and power with God. "The mission of SermonIndex is the preservation and propogation of classical vintage preaching and the promotion of genuine biblical revival to this generation."

How skepticism can fight radicalism, conspiracy theorists, and Holocaust deniers | Michael Shermer
 
10:00
Liberal college students have taken to shouting down certain right-leaning speakers on campus that they don't agree with. Michael Shermer, the publisher of Skeptic Magazine, thinks that is the worst thing you can do. He posits that all you do when you prevent someone from speaking is make certain people want to hear them more. This has led to the rise of the conspiracy theorists and why fringe ideas—from something as silly as flat-earth believers to something as morally reprehensible as Nazism and Holocaust deniers—have been pushed back into the mainstream. Read more at BigThink.com: http://bigthink.com/videos/michael-shermer-how-skepticism-can-fight-radicalism-conspiracy-theorists-and-holocaust-deniers Follow Big Think here: YouTube: http://goo.gl/CPTsV5 Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/BigThinkdotcom Twitter: https://twitter.com/bigthink There’s a market for what we do; that is, skepticism. What is skepticism? It’s just a scientific way of thinking. So why aren’t scientists doing this? Because they’re busy doing their own thing in their particular fields. What the skeptical movement has developed is a set of tools like the Baloney Detection Kit, a set of tools to deal with particular claims that are on the margins of science like creationism, intelligent design theory, the anti-vaccinations, the holocaust revisionists, you know, all these conspiracy theories and so on and all these alternative medicines, there’s hundreds and hundreds of these claims that are all connected to different sciences, but the scientists in those particular fields are too busy working in their research to bother with what these claims are because they claims really aren’t about those fields, they’re just hooked to them. They’re about something else, because back in the ‘80s when I first saw some professional scientists debate Duane Gish, the “Young Earth” creationist, they did not fare well. And I saw some holocaust historians debating or confronting Holocaust so-called revisionists or deniers, they did not fare well because they didn’t know the special arguments that are being made by these fringe people that have nothing to do with the science really, they have an agenda, and they’re using these little tweaked questions to get at the mainstream and try to debunk it for their own idea logical reasons. So for example, like Holocaust revisionists, they make this the big deal about why the door on the gas chamber at Mauthausen doesn’t lock. “I mean if it doesn’t lock how are you gassing people if you can’t lock the door? So they must not have gassed people in there, so if they didn’t gas people at Mauthausen they probably didn’t gas people at any of the death camps. And if they didn’t gas people at any of the death camps then there must not have been a Holocaust.” What?! Wait a minute. All from this door that doesn’t lock? Well I eventually went and found out that that wasn’t the original door; that took me a couple of years, but that’s the kind of specialty thing that skeptics do that mainstream scientists, scholars, historians don’t have time to do. So over the 25 years, not just us there’s other skeptic magazines and conferences and groups of people that meet at meet ups and so on all over the world, and it’s because of the Internet, especially this whole idea of what we now call fake news, alternative facts, has gotten bigger and bigger and it just gets unfolded in real time online within minutes and hours and we have to jump on it fast. That’s really in part what we do so that’s what we’ve been doing for 25 years is kind of putting out brushfires here and there, but also developing a set of tools that can apply to any future ideas, because I don’t know what’s going to be popular five years from now. Heck I don’t know what’s going to be trending tomorrow, who knows? So you’ve got to have these tools at the ready and that’s what we’ve been doing at Skeptic magazine, but let's address a college campus issue these days. Ok, I really think this goes back to the 1980s. I noticed it first when I was in graduate school, the second time when I got a PhD in the history of science. My first round was in the ‘70s in experimental psychology graduate school, and I didn’t notice any of this campus stuff. In the late ‘80s when I was in my doctoral program—because history deals a lot with literature, the kind of post-modernist deconstruction of what texts means, it was really taking off. So I initially thought “What is this? But okay I’ll give it a shot I’ll keep an open mind here and just try to follow the reasoning.” And I kind of see where they were going. So what is the true meaning of Jane Austen’s novel here, or Shakespeare’s play there, or this novelist or that author? And I can see that there may not be one meaning. Maybe the author meant it as kind of provoking you to think about certain deep issues and you have to find your own meaning in the text. Okay, I can understand that.

Suspicious Minds: Why We Believe Conspiracy Theories | Rob Brotherton
 
27:25
Why do people believe conspiracy theories? What’s the harm if they do? And just what is a conspiracy theory, anyway? Conspiracy theories captured the attention of philosophers and historians decades ago, but it is only within the last few years that psychologists have begun gathering data on these kinds of questions. In this talk, Rob Brotherton provides a psychological perspective on conspiracism, drawing on his own research as well as other insights explored in his book Suspicious Minds: Why We Believe Conspiracy Theories. In particular, research into cognitive biases and heuristics – quirks in the way our brains are wired – suggests that we’re all intuitive conspiracy theorists; some of us just hide it better than others. Rob Brotherton is an academic psychologist. He completed a PhD on the psychology of conspiracy theories with the Anomalistic Psychology Research Unit at Goldsmiths, University of London. He now lives in New York City and teaches classes on conspiracy theories, social psychology, and science communication at Barnard College. This talk was recorded live at CSICon Las Vegas on Saturday, October 28th 2017. Check out more talks: https://reasonabletalk.tv/ Learn more about CFI: http://www.centerforinquiry.net/

Conspiracy theory and the anti-vaccine movement
 
12:31
Vaccine hesitancy is a top 10 threat to public health, and it's driven largely by anti-vaccine activism. But why do people believe and propagate debunked claims, and what is the mindset behind it? In this video, we look at the fact that anti-vaccine activism has long existed, how it is rooted in conspiracy theory, and what drives it. And crucially, we touch on how vaccine misinformation is best addressed.

Why Conspiracy Theories are Illogical | Moon Landing, Flat Earth, Global Warming
 
14:10
This video answers the question: Why are conspiracy theories illogical from a personality perspective? There are a wide variety of conspiracy theories including: vaccinations, global warming, chemtrails, flat earth, no moon landing, area 51, cure for cancer being suppressed, and elite lizards (shape-shifting aliens) who seek world domination. Some conspiracy theories turned out to be supported by evidence like the CIA testing LSD on Americans and the government monitoring communications around the world. Many people believe in one or two conspiracy theories, but many conspiracy theorists believe in dozens. All conspiracy theories share one thing in common: large numbers of organized, evil people conspiring to cause harm. People may believe in conspiracy theories for many reasons, some of which have no relationship to personality and mental health. Others may tend to find meaning from randomness and believe it affects them personally (ideas of reference). We also see a tendency to hold odd beliefs and to have magical thinking. At a subclinical level, these traits align with schizotypy. Many conspiracy theorists feel uncertain, insecure, anxious, powerless, and isolated. Why would conspiracies fail? People aren't good at conspiring, especially in the long run when the stakes are high. Some traits associated with deliberately or inadvertently revealing the truth are high altruism, low conscientiousness (not being careful), high neuroticism (impulsivity), high extraversion (talkative), narcissism (fantasy, jealously, lack of empathy, admiration), high adventurousness, and substance use.

Conspiracy theories are a symptom of our new dark age. The last 100 years of computation shows us that big data is always insufficient. We’ve completely undermined any trust in traditional sources of authority but we’ve also spent the last 50 years undercutting our understanding of the world by making technology and the systems around us ever more opaque. In New Dark Age: Technology and the End of the Future leading artist and writer James Bridle surveys the history of art, technology, and information systems, and reveals the dark clouds that gather over our dreams of the digital sublime.

Why some conspiracy theories just won’t die | Elise Wang | TEDxDuke
 
15:27
America has a crisis of conspiracy theory belief. Not only are they at the heart of recent far-right terrorist attacks, they spread like wildfire on social media, and they are gaining ground among the young and educated. What is their appeal? And what can we do to stop them? Elise Wang has been teaching at Duke since January 2018, after receiving her PhD at Princeton and master's degree at Oxford as a Rhodes Scholar. She believes that teaching is a transformative act. In settings from prisons to university lecture halls to ESL classrooms, Dr. Wang strives to bring all students - but especially those who feel themselves at the margins of the classroom - to the center of scholarly debate. She feels strongly that such attention helps students connect deeply to their education, because it allows them to see it not as a measure of their value, but as a supporting character in the story of their lives. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
