Homeopathic Flimflammery

I have some friends who swear by Homeopathy.  I try to resist their “pill-vangelism” but sometimes give in.  A cup of tea is just as good, or better yet a walk in the fresh air, but what really gets to me is the belief-system that generates billions of dollars for the quacks.

Here’s the latest science.

“There are no health conditions for which there is reliable evidence that homeopathy is effective.”

Pure magic. Nothing more; nothing less.

Magic.

Now, placebos are not ALL bad.  It’s just that…we need to be honest what they are:

Placebos.

Exactly what happens when a person flushes their reason to take another leap into the arms of gullible faith.

Flimflam: “nonsensical or insincere talk; a confidence game”
