"To say that only the natural sciences reach truth is to make a philosophical claim about truth".

Er, OK, I think I (sort of) get the point. More things in Heaven and Earth etc. (re)define Truth to mean what we say it means. Well, natural science does that too, doesn't it? Or does it?

And what's wrong with homoeoeoeopathy (love those o-e-o-e-o bits) anyway? It's great. It's the only medicine that has absolutely no side effects. Nearly as good as placebos, and a lot easier to get hold of. (Do you have any idea how hard it is to find a pharmacy that stocks placebos? Or a doctor willing to prescribe them?). I suppose I could buy my placebos online, but how can I be sure I won't get scammed with some rubbish that doesn't work?
