Homeopaths Spam Bomb Gimpy

[BPSDB]A regular visitor to Gimpy’s excellent blog cannot help but notice that there has been a surge of comments – particularly this post and to a lesser extent this one. The reason is not hard to find.
As I have previously noted, Jeremy Sherr is not happy with the criticism he has received regarding his proposed trials of homeopathy to cure AIDS in Tanzania. Rather than engage with his critics, Sherr wrote to various pro-homeopathy blogs (such as this one) and requested that Gimpy be flooded with pro-homeopathy commentry.

This they have done but again, like Sherr they do not engage with the substantive of Gimpy’s posts – the ethically dubious nature of the proposed trial. Or at least, I cannot find any attempt to do so. Maybe there is one hidden amongst the verbiage of attempts to reframe the debate, tired old canards about evidence based medicine and spammed cooments from the likes of Nancy Malik.

If just one of them had posted a simple explanation of their position that could have been effective. Perhaps their homeopathic philosophy suggests to them that any arguments are made more potent if they are greatly diluted with tens of thousands of meaningless words.

    Oh yes, it may be the case that Sherr is banned from practising. Somebody needs to ask the Tanzanian government for clarification and put pressure on them if they don’t include him.

    It’s been fun watching their nonsense just pile up!

    I suppose it would have been too much to ask for any one of the woo pushers to stop and think, but we live in hope!

    This is the best synopsis of all homeopathic comments on the internet EVER and should henceforth be known as JQH’s Law!

    Here in America we have Dull Man’s Law, which states that being Dana Ullman automatically loses you the argument.

    Waaheyy! I got my own Law! cheers Perky Skeptic!

    I like the Dull Man’s Law :-)

    Anyway a buddist Hoe has told me I am in one of their 4 levels of hell. Talk about un-intelligent debate. Also the Hoe who posted this was too lazy to read all of my post, so I assume she didn’t read Gimpy’s post or the links I included.

    As others have pointed out, the Hoes total inability to engage ethical issues on any level means they should not be seriously considered as health care professionals

    Nice work JQH. Perky Skeptic – some fine new laws you’ve introduced me to there. Have you heard of Scopie’s Law? It relates to invoking the Whale.to webshite.

  7. The Perky Skeptic Says:

    Scopie’s Law is an extremely useful piece of internet legislation! :D

    I perused whale.to once. I lost brain cells.

    It is now official, JQH’s law. Love it!

    • jaycueaitch Says:

      Wow. A really profound comment there u basbard. I am impressed by your extensive vocabulary, your profound knowledge and the subtle logical arguments with which you marshal them and demonstrate the sheer stupidity of homeopathy’s fan base in a far better manner than any thing I could say.

    200+ human studies published in 85+ peer-reviewed international medical journals out of which 96+ are FULL TEXT out of which 94 are PDF which can be downloaded at http://drnancymalik.wordpress.com/article/scientific-research-in-homeopathy/
