Today was just that sort of day where A) I had the energy to get enraged enough to rant and write and B) I happened to find an easy target. Homeopathy.
Do I feel better? A little bit.
Here’s the clip which inspired such a passionate response:
Soooo you’re buying a bottle of diluted nothing for big money, but the guys who spend millions researching actual medicines (which actually work) are the crooks? Right.
If homeopathy is your way, I would suggest you let go of your delusions and placebos and replace it with PROVEN, science based medicine rather than trying to buy into an ancient crock of you-know-what. How can I say it’s a crock? I can say that with confidence due to the utter lack of proof when it comes to these “treatments” having any efficacy at all. Treating with nothing does exactly that – NOTHING. And that is precisely what homeopathy is – a whole bottle full of nothing. I know, modern medicines are awful! They treat things and make people feel better and stuff… Let’s go the “all natural” way and treat things like they used to in the bronze age. Here’s a little fact – there’s a reason people only lived into their 30’s back then and I think you can guess what that reason is.
I don’t know when the idea came about that science and medicine are awful things. Wanna know what’s awful? Disease. And worse yet – watching a loved one die of said disease. But somehow the guys doing all of the research into life-saving and life-improving medicine are the guys that you need to flip the proverbial bird to because they’re the evil ones?
How about the scam artists pretending to be doctors, selling you “medicines” that actually aren’t medicines at all? Those guys will charge you an arm and a leg for a product diluted to the point of having no trace of the original (ineffective) ingredient, but the PHARMA companies are the scam artists?
Nobody’s perfect but the ones who claim to be so are the worst.
