What the **** is going on? [thread closed]

Sorry, but this is not the first time an intellectually stimulating thread got closed recently, and I take great exception to it.

Reopen the homeopathy thread or I flounce.

BIG TIME

Aha ! Congratulations.
You have me at an obvious disadvantage. Still, my earlier questions remain. If not to argue, but to learn.

Mainly because I believe that to be the case, therefore it is.

That's how this whole thread works, right?

Don't take it personally, it looked like the actual homeo talk wasn't really there anymore...

Re: What the **** is going on?

We've had this homeophathetic discussion so many times though!

It would have been closed much quicker if economisto wasn't involved in the discussion

Yes but that is not a valid reason to close a discussion. When you come home from work each day and your wife says "How was work today ?" do you reply with "we have already had that discusssion yesterday so lets not discuss it again".

Discussion boards are for debate. Because the topic is the same, it does not mean the debate will be.

Homeopathic remedies are water. They don't work past the placebo effect.

If my wife asked me everyday how was work and I was a homeopathic doctor my reply every day would be 'Nothing happened, I did nothing, and I made lots of money'

It would be the same all the time. She would eventually stop asking. We'd probably get divorced and have a broken family and my children would grow up to be serial killers.

ANOTHER victim of bogus homeopathic 'medicine'.

You mean you don't say that? I find it's the best way to get some uninterrupted TV time after a long hard day on EF at the office.

Bow locks Sir

Some people actually thought I was selling it or using it or defending it. The joke is, I was only ever explaining it...

Still, it did get silly towards the end with Cyrus' crazy interpretations and mis-quotes.

If they were crazy, it's because the source material to work from is crazy.

Homeopathy has never been shown to work any better than a placebo. The rest of the thread is based on trying to ignore that. Wild speculation, pseudoscience then finally comparing homepathy users to rape victims ensued. Pathetic.

I rest my case with about your crazy interpretations.
Still Case/Thread closed on the matter. Have a nice day.

Hard to say, what are these anecdotes then, if not of people being cured ? What is 100K positive anecdotes ? The point being, it is very easy for science to discard positive anecdotes, in so much as a Court can free a rapist due to lack of evidence. How do you explain that to the victim... that she wasn't raped ?
Gosh, I'm sorry, so you're not comparing the anecdotal evidence of homeopaths to that of a rape case?
