Sounds Exactly Like Climate Alarm

Good excuse as any to relink this funny video on homeopathy

  • GoneWithTheWind

    That is funny. But have you ever actually talked to someone who believes in this superstition? They make this comedy skit look serious.

  • jdgalt

    How can those actors keep from cracking up long enough to do the sketch?

  • Gil G

    One has the backing mainstream science the other is quackery.

  • jon49

    Yeah, I know people who do.

    I also know people are anti gun but are supporting a known war hawk for president.

  • Nehemiah

    Thanks Coyote, I'll probably spend hours watching the rest of their videos.

    A long time ago, due to the influence of a Michigan legislator in Lansing, the University of Michigan had a homeopathic college of medicine in addition to the allopathic college of medicine. The homeopathic college is gone, but the building remains, North Hall. The elevator is the right size for a gurney and the second floor classrooms have part glass ceiling, now covered, to let natural light in for the gross anatomy lectures.

    Mises Institute recently had there education week. This was a good lecture on medical establishment and economics. But in the talk he mentions homeopathy as being a good thing in the free market because it showed how the mainstream medicine at the time was doing more harm than good. Not that it make homeopathy good - but doing nothing - homeopathy - is better than doing something sometimes - blood letting, etc.

    "Mainstream" means nothing except that millions of fools with attention spans of one sound bite believe in it.

  • ErikTheRed

    There's a fairly broad chasm between the homeopathy of that time and what is colloquially referred to as homeopathy today.

  • jon49

    @ErikTheRed:disqus Do you have link where I can read about it? Regardless, the point was, even if medicine is more of a placebo it offers a great live experiment to see if other medicine is worth its salt or not.

    There must be people who believe it, there is a whole aisle dedicated to various homeopathic liquids and remedies. I doubt they would keep them stocked if they didn't sell.

  • Gil G

    You're joking, right?

  • jdgalt

    Dead serious.

    You'll be well rewarded. Mitchell and Webb are hilarious.
