Anti-Vaxxer Robert De Niro Offers $100,000 to Disprove Vaccine Science

Robert De Niro and Robert Kennedy Jr. are willing to pay you $100,000. All you have to do is convince them of something that scientists have already proven. From Death and Taxes:

Kennedy explained that the WMP [RFK Jr’s World Mercury Project] will pay $100,000 to the first journalist, or other individual, who can find a peer-reviewed scientific study demonstrating that thimerosal is safe in the amounts contained in vaccines currently being administered to American children and pregnant women. Kennedy believes that even “a meager effort at homework” will expose that contention as unsupported by science.

Presumably, none of the studies featured on the FDA page will be accepted. If they are, this will be the easiest $100,000 anyone has ever made. “What we’ve been told is not science. It’s more akin to religion. It’s orthodoxy,” Kennedy said at Wednesday’s press conference. “We need to break this impasse.”

Basically, no one is getting $100,000.

This is like me saying, “I’ll give you a million dollars if you can prove to me that the sky blue.” Anyone can look up and see that the sky is blue, but if I’m not willing to accept this is as a fact, I don’t have to pay up.
