Can vaccines cause autism?

In the past few years I got to read more and more about the anti-vaccination movement.
Is autism genetic or is it indeed caused by vaccines?

Whoever says that vaccines cause autism has absolutely no idea about science and you
shouldn’t rely on that as a source of information. There is no wonder you are a little
confused by this.

There are thousands of genes involved in creating an autistic person. There is no test
that can determine if one’s children could be autistic, but if one or more persons in
the family have autism, there is a greater chance of having an autistic child.

Autism is a natural variation just like one’s eye color, height, hair color. It varies
and it is not a genetic disease.
