That's like the worst list I've ever seen to prove a point. Most of them are wives' tales or things you'd hear on the playground of an elementary school.

And number 9 can be empirically proven wrong:

Dude literally all 25 of those are common saying and public "knowledge", not science. Science is based on the scientific method and peer reviewed reports and journals.

Exactly what I've seen trying to have this conversation with people. ( mind you I live in a predominantly christian area) a lot of my peers have a major distrust for things that they don't fully understand, which, happens to be anything outside of country living and country cures. I can see where they come from though, of all the ear drops I've tried nothing has worked better than sweet oil for ear pain, and for getting a splinter out drawing salve is top notch. But, those two examples are where it basically ends ( maybe a few more that works pretty well) but these people think you can cure a viral infection with a few drops of witch hazel.

Even with all of this the other huge issue is even if you are vaccinated if you come in direct contact with someone who is sick with something you've been vaccinated against you can still get that disease anyway. Its not just the antivax kids that these people are risking

It's based in ignorance as well. They refuse to accept medical facts and put the lives of others in their hands.

To be honest, I do understand the logic behind the anti-vax community, but it is flawed logic.
I was discussing this subject with a few of my friends and our conclusion is that essentially, the antivax movement is fundamentally based on the idea that the scientific community cannot be right on everything. I disagree with this idea because what I study is well embedded in the scientific community and I understand the community as a whole, but to people on the outside of the scientific community, it must be confusing. To people who have little to no understanding of science and the scientific community, science appears as some huge overwhelmingly powerful entity that dictates so many aspects of our lives. It's like a huge corporation of knowledge, and fundamentally people like the anti-vaxxers cannot believe that science is right on everything. Whereas, as someone in the scientific community, I understand that science is ultimately just a loose group bound by the scientific method. So i think that the antivax community stems from the mistrust of science, and the belief that it is some entity that serves its own interests.
