Your own stupid little infographic classifies expert opinion as evidence. It's not direct observational evidence but it's definitely evidence. The expert opinion is based on a qualified, competent assessment of the evidence so it is definitely evidence in itself. The only question is how much weight to give it and I'm not looking for much, all I need is plausibility to show that the babbitts are all up their own asses.
Again... I'll refer you to the chart I posted a few hours ago.
You need to refer to your chart.
Then the expert is fking retarded because it is not "well accepted" in his field. Unless he is talking about the field of conspiracy theories. In which case... he might be right.
Here's another expert in the field with the same opinion:
"I also find, with a high degree of medical certainty, that the set of immunizations administered to Yates at age 11 months while he was ill was the immediate cause of his autistic regression because of the effect of these immunizations to further impair the ability of his weakened mitochondria to supply adequate amounts of energy for the brain, the highest-energy consuming tissue in the body."
