Re: [praizeop2] The God gene...
sarah: Hi.

At 81 years of age I have never had the flu.

That is likely because to catch flu you need to have regular close contact with other people who have the flu. No contact with infection = no flu.

Thinking that vaccination causes disease would be like thinking exercise make you weaker. It does at first but your body then compensates by building muscles making you stronger. Vaccination has ironically probably benefited you and your husband, even though you have aversion to it. large scale vaccination against smallpox has effectively ensured that you have not come into contact with infected smallpox carriers. Likewise Polio. So you should still be grateful that others have resistance to some diseases, because that has indirectly protected you and your husband through the general decrease in possibly infectious contacts.

If you live in a fairly isolated rural environment, contact with infected people would be less likely than when living in a densely populated city but on the rare occasion when you do make contact, your chances of going down with something terminal are slightly increased because your immune system would be unprepared and lack the necessary antibodies to deal with the invading pathogens.

Of course you could put it all down to faith, prayer or God's will, but that was found to be a poor guide to survival or recovery for at least half the local population during the Black Death, Bubonic Plague or Ebola.

I think that if everyone followed your example it would greatly increase the possibility of global epidemics, not reduce it.

Regards Chris.
In Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting the message of reconciliation to us. 2 Cor. 5:19. Love covers a multitude of sins. 1 Pet.4:8b.
