So, when there's no scientific evidence for medical claims, anecdotal evidence will do?! When has that ever flown in the past? Ohhhhhh... right.

I will summarize the video for you, but you should really watch it also. Homeopathic medicine relies on taking an extremely extreeeemely small dose of some disease (like Malaria, Typhoid, etc...) and then tells you that you will be immune to that disease. Or rather, tells you that other people have said that when they did this, the felt immune and did not get sick. Hmm... come to think of it, those two statements are COMPLETELY different! What the hell passes for medicine these days? The video mentions that you are not allowed to give homeopathic medicine to animals unless you first prove scientifically that the medical claims are substantiated. But you can give it to humans without doing so. Is this some sort of glorified placebo? Like how placing an elastic band around your wrist has the same affect as a Q-ray bracelet? What a rip off.

So, how does this relate to Secular Humanism? If you haven't drawn the comparison yet, I'd be quite shocked. But as my title suggests, when there's no scientific proof of God's existence, anecdotal evidence will suffice! What a topsy turvy world we live in. It's my life's mission to ensure that before I die, there is a paradigm shift in this regard.


  1. It always blows my mind how many people buy into this obvious hooey. It's likely a good dose of wishful thinking but in the end it does a lot more harm than good. So many people die needlessly by using non-medicine BS instead of just going to the doctor.

    Love the blog! Keep it up!
