Healing Fractures With Homeopathy – Homeopathy Houston

A brief, but intense, dose of near-terminal delusion emanating from a part of the Universe calling itself Homeopathy Houston is on the menu for today. This delightful little place is owned by one Karl Robinson, who happens to be a qualified MD (admittedly from woo-ridden private college  Drexel) and doesn’t hesitate to wave it around, presumably with the intention of bamboozling the marks into thinking that what he provides is some form of genuine medical treatment. It’s still fucking useless homeopathy. Here’s the start of Robinson’s crisp summing up of how homeopaths sell their magic-disguised-as-medicine: Homeopathy Does Not Treat Diseases As strange as it might sound, the homeopath does not treat diseases per se. He or she treats the individual who happens to have x, y, or z pathology. A homeopath does not limit his treatment to any one area of the body by concentrating his therapy on, say, arthritis … Continue reading

Lynne McTaggart: “It’s only natural” – like in bitter almond kernels?

Earlier this month, professional bullshit artist Lynne McTaggart published another of her ill-constructed rants on her blog, with the title It’s only natural – like in oranges. Yeah, lady, lots of things are natural. Mercury and arsenic are natural. Smallpox was natural. Dying is natural. The post.  It’s punting a thing called GcMAF (Globulin component Macrophage Activating Factor – as the name suggests, it’s made from blood) and, of course, the appalling Saatchi Bill, now defunct. All sorts of major health claims have been made for GcMAF, principally by quacks and dodgy online pharmacies, which explains why the Blessed McTaggart and her pointless rag WDDTY are all for it. Idle speculation among the Teapot household resulted in the conclusion that if ever one of McTaggart’s fave “alternative” remedies were ever to become part of real medicine, she would drop it like the proverbial hot brick. Anyway, to set the scene, … Continue reading

Roslyn Ross Defends Homeopathy. ORLY?

Our ever-reliable Baggie has posted the following exercise in mendacity: Roslyn Ross Vermont Girls High School Defends Homeopathy Against one of its Skeptics Um… There’s a girls’ high school in Vermont called “Roslyn Ross”? Or is that a Total Punctuation Fail (deliberate or otherwise) and it’s a pro-homeopathy nut called Roslyn Ross allegedly claiming an unnamed Vermont school published a piece of pro homeopathy stupidity? There’s no link to the original, so no way to tell where SAHC got it from. Well, I found Roslyn Ross, who lives in Australia and is indeed an extreme homeopathy loon. Nothing in her rantings about any schools promoting homeopathy, though. Odd, that. OK, let’s get on with the show. Sandra Roslyn lists major problems with homeodumbfuckery and then purports to debunk them. Without, of course, producing the slightest evidence. You said: Many other alternative remedies are nothing more than a placebo — having … Continue reading

Homeopathy never changes

We all know that, essentially, homeopathy never changes and nor do its adepts. To introduce any change would be to admit that the whole concept of homeopathy is bollocks and Hahnemann the Great Guru was a gibbering nutter. Except of course that they do muck around with it – introducing such un-Hahnemannic concepts as nosodes – while all the time strenuously denying this is at odds with their core belief. It’s still fucking sugar and water of course, with maybe some alcohol in it. Including in the remedies for children, which gives you an idea of how responsible and ethical these bastards are. So: I found this cackling lunacy on Freedom4Health‘s public Facebook page: I reckon it scores a full 100 on the WTFometer. Seriously, it takes a special kind of Dribbling Stupid to be proud that your favourite fuckwittery has never, ever changed, in spite of all the alleged … Continue reading

TFP Student Brainwashing: 10 Reasons Why Homosexual “Marriage” is Harmful and Must be Opposed

The Irish are having a referendum on same-sex marriage in May and, predictably, the International Church of Bigotry (mostly RC, but they’re not alone) has descended on the poor country to bring all its weight to bear on the locals. The same thing happened in France, where it simply wasn’t statistically possible for every single demonstrator in the infamous ultra-rightwing Manif Pour Tous parades to be French, even though they brought the weans along to act as human shields when trying to force their way through police cordons. There’s a MPT cellule in Ireland, though I suspect it’s tiny, and they tweet some very nasty links. Such as to this lot, TFP Student Action, a Catholic extremist hate group flourishing mostly in the Americas. Now, some time back I ripped apart the petulance, misinformation and outright lies of “Dr” Peter Saunders and his 10 reasons not to legalise same-sex marriage. … Continue reading

If ever you thought “alt med” fans cared about suffering…

We’ve already touched on the so-called “alt med” community’s attitude to evidence, viz.: “We don’t need it and anyway: quantum. Or nano. Therefore homeopathy.”  Now admire this little gem of caring and selfless dedication just Twatted by our old fiend, Sandra Hermann-Courtney, whose handle should really be BrownBagPantsonfire: #Stupid stuff #homeopathy skeptics tweet Think this cancer patient cared about "evidence" ? http://t.co/orUYdG1R2c pic.twitter.com/uFhoNz5a97 — Sandra Courtney (@BrownBagPantry) March 16, 2015 Just in case that tweet ever gets deleted, here’s a screenshot: While you’re reeling from the sheer callous viciousness of that, bear in mind it’s not an exceptionally fuckwitted Twat from the homeopathic troll community; it’s a bog-standard one. By the way, the link in that Tweet is to the dreaded Banerji fraud-and-manslaughter centre in India. Talking of whom, any sceptics resident in India might want to report their misleading claims to The Advertising Standards Council Of India. Just sayin’. … Continue reading

Video of the day: Attention all non-vaccinating parents

Jimmy Kimmel has a weird accent. I can barely make out what he’s saying. However, the message from these medical professionals to non-vaccinating parents is crystal clear. I have seen people calling this “hate speech”, accusing the doctors of being “ignorant” and generally dismissing the whole thing. You might like to ask these people what their scientific qualifications are, what they’re selling and how they explain the eradication of smallpox or the fact that polio is on its way to extinction, and why the fuck they dare claim that deliberately exposing children to potentially lethal diseases is a sane thing to do.  

Alan Hunter trolls again

OK, Alan Hunter isn’t just a spittle-flecked ranting quack, he’s a spittle-flecked ranting quack who goes out of his way to post his attacks on others in the most inappropriate places he can find. This tripe got posted in the comments section of the Contact page (now closed). Remember that I had to close down direct contact temporarily because of this fuckwit’s behaviour here and on other websites, particularly WWDDTYDTY. No, he wasn’t writing to apologise. From: Alan Hunter (info@foodallergycure.com): As selective as ever, aren’t we? I prefer to promote facts over fantasy, yes. You choose to point out a NoW reference – that I anticipated you would HAHAHAHA bollocks. It’s called pretending to be wise after the event. You didn’t write that bucket of verbal diarrhoea just for me, and I very much doubt you thought anyone would look twice at the “references”, since the whole point of a … Continue reading

Shock! Horror! Lord Winston attacks Homeopathy in spite of knowing homeopaths

Eye-searing homeopathy webshite Homeopathy Heals Me published this bit of frothing dumbfuck on 7th December 2014. I was suffering from a surfeit of parties at the time, so it got squirreled away for debollocksing at a later date. Today seems like a good day for it. It’s quite short, yet manages to cram a huge amount of shrill hysteria into a few words. Today’s Mail on Sunday carries an online article about Lord Robert Winston, pioneer of IVF treatment, attacking David Treddinick MP, who is on the House of Commons Health Committee, for supporting homeopathy. Yet Lord Winston himself actually attended a Memorial Service in 2012, for the homeopathic doctors who died in a plane crash at Staines, after takeoff at Heathrow in 1972. He even reads (sic) out two psalms at the service conducted by the vicar, who himself was formally a homeopathic doctor. Apparently his mother-in-law, Dr. Marjorie Golomb-Feigenbaum, was a homeopathic doctor who … Continue reading

Pompous Twerp Alert: Alan Hunter just found the Contact form

It took him longer than I thought, but allergy quack and spam ranter Alan Hunter finally found this site and has decided to bluster at me. I’m tired and have important things to do tomorrow, so this will be short and sweet, but heartfelt. For a summary of previous episodes, please read the posts here and on WWDDTYDTY. Just don’t do it with your mouth full, as I accept no responsibility for what may become of your keyboard. From: Alan Hunter Subject: Your inaccurate assessment of my findings Message Body: Dear Anonymous Anarchic-teapot Attacking the person instead of the argument. +1 WTF point. I would like you to read this article, from Positive Health, which shows the medical literature I have drawn my conclusions from. Are you sitting comfortably, dear reader? Then let us abord the first item in this 82-point Gish Gallop: 1. News of the World. London. 29 … Continue reading
