spirited ramblings with a homeopath

read from bottom to top, of course (LINK to the same stream on Twitter)

The silliness of the statement about acetaminophen and surgery is particularly striking. It is true that acetaminophen isn't entirely understood. There are aspects of how it works that are still being explored. But that's science! Unlike with homeopathy, there is a rigorous, ongoing series of peer-reviewed studies and debate, all within the context of the laws of physics, chemistry and biology. As to surgery, double blind surgery is a standard practice. It's just that it's done with animals rather than humans, for obvious reasons.
