Go to: An Apology

Truth_seeker's Avatar Jump to comment 160 by Truth_seeker

Thanks Richard for explaining that.
I think you have to understand that your reaction was irrational. If your good friend was having a difficult time on these threads with posters saying stuff or abusing him then he either cannot tolerate it therefore indicating we need a better policy. Perhaps we just need a more humane way to discuss issues, maybe we need to ban profanity.

Both of you have over reacted which has not gone un-noticed. Why is it that such well educated people have become so sensitive to the uneducated posts of others is beyond me? Such delicate natures and lack of personal control has led you to appologise.

Why is both angry, is it because there is really a lack of control over the mind or too much secretions of chemicals due to hormones released with respect to the information that is presented via the eyes which has led to a clouded judgement and errors purely due to a lack of mental control.

Meditation has been known to help in that inability of anger control. Perhaps an explanation of the science and a dose of chemicals that would help you and your friend in that department.

This is not a dig but a hint that either what has happened here is just an emotional outburst and that is what makes us human or inhuman at times and how do we react to it when reality is presented to us how we react.

Is meditation an answer for your anger or perhaps sleep for stress? Whatever it is, your response to your friends problems needs to be understood and curtailed for the future. For this has caused the delibrate stopping or shutting down of a web site due to the anger of just two people which shows how vulnerable people are when they have no system to stay in control of their emotions.

Can you explain how you would cure this anger so that we don't have this happen again. And we can feel secured that our posts and others responses as answers to haunting questions we have are kept there for the future reference? Rather than we lose the work people are contributing to help each other through life.

Go to: The trouble with homeopathy

Truth_seeker's Avatar Jump to comment 198 by Truth_seeker

I went looking into the life of Christian Friedrich Samuel Hahnemann who apparently is a well educated chap who did a lot of research on this topic and wrote a big book with all the documented evidence of his work.

Can someone tell me what was wrong with the scientific method he used? Apparently he loved chemistry so much and that I presume triggered him to study the effects of medicines on humans in a scientific way.

Was his method discredited?
Where can I get my hands on the evidence of the discrediting his science? Or is it all about bashing a dead man and his work? Is he a quack?

This is a bit old but worth a read.

At least someone is doing the science needed to unfold the mystery.

Go to: The trouble with homeopathy

Homeopathy worked for me. To me that is enough for me to consider alternative treatment when conventional fails again.

I see no reason to shut down any NHS treatment unless scientist can established why it did work for me or any other.

I don't buy this placebo argument.

Why is homeopathy on the NHS? Did it get there accidentally, or was it purposely put on it?

1. Does it work for some people?

2. Why is it that something that does not work have any success for anybody?

3. If we take it off the NHS does that stop them from setting up privately owned practises?

4. If people pay for something that does not work can the governement collect taxes on it.

5. If the government wants to collect taxes on it then does that mean they have to allow it to survive?

6. Is that how it came unto the NHS in the fist place?
