Go to: James Randi Explains - Homeopathy

agentwhim's Avatar Jump to comment 4 by agentwhim

It is a shame that Randi didn't point out why Homeopathy appears to work, through the placebo effect and regression to the mean, and the damage it can do, by delaying proper treatment. Without this element, gullible people will just think: "Well, I know people who have had good experiences with homeopathy and it can't do any harm."

Go to: Darwin’s Deathbed Conversion—a Legend?

What difference does it make anyway? Surely once a theory has been described it enters the public domain and becomes the property of all of us.

Apples wouldn't have started floating up into the air if Newton had claimed that his theory of gravitation was wrong.
