I'm actually astounded by how often computer guys can be so bad at the science they claim to be upholders of. In no other industry have I come across so many guys with actual degrees who are convinced climate change is some sort of vast left wing conspiracy, that vaccines are some sort of evil big-pharma plot, and so on.
I mean fine, believe what you want, but don't call yourself an engineer when you hold so much science in contempt guys.
Computer science is really more engineering (unless you're talking about a subset who are more mathematicians, but that's still different from science). Plenty of engineers have a scientific mindset, and plenty of scientists have an engineering mindset, but the two disciplines are quite different. I've certainly witnessed it enough in people I know, and more so in forums. I happen to have both backgrounds, though I fall more into the scientific category as I only did engineering in undergrad and I'm about to finish my PhD in neuroscience.
To be clear, I quite value engineering/problem solving as a way of thinking, but I do find very generally that engineers are more susceptible to magical thinking than scientists (who are by no means immune themselves). As a very anecdotal/small sample example, many muslim extremist jihadists, particularly among those who were part of the 9/11 attacks, are engineers. Again, such an example is not meant to impugn engineers, but I do think that scientists would be less likely to be taken in by such ideology. There is a far greater need for questioning underlying ideas and models in science. I'd be very interested in seeing any hard research on this sort of thing, but it would fit with engineers (including computer scientists) being more likely than scientists to have anti-vax views.
Having said all that, while I very much am in favor of vaccination and do not doubt the science, I also don't simply trust big-pharma or even necessarily any given government science agency. For instance, the USDA has had serious problems with having too much influence by certain food industries. The FDA has certainly made some political decisions over the years. Still, while I might not trust a specific agency at a particular time, or a specific pharma company about a particular vaccine, I do trust the scientific and peer review process with regards to vaccines in general. It seems many people have a very hard time differentiating those things.
