Did Jesus smoke canabis or use it to cure cancer?

When are you going to die, and why is it a good idea to know?

These are just a few of the questions that won't be answered in this month's podcast...

PostHeaderIcon Why Trubees Believe. (Or - On Being a Careful Skeptic (tm))

I'm imagining that I'm a trubee.

I know that homeopathy works. I've seen it, I've heard other people talk about it, and I've been told, by people that I trust and respect (mainly because of their passionate defence of my point-of-view), that it works.

If it works, then - if it gets tested properly - there must be good solid scientific evidence for it.

Note, by the way, that, so far, none of this has been a conscious logic process. This has all happened behind-the-scenes as it were.

PostHeaderIcon 1023 - Homeopathy: There's nothing in it

There's a new grassroots campaign starting up in the UK.

http://www.1023.org.uk/

From the site:

"
The 10:23 campaign aims to raise awareness of the reality of homeopathy. We will tell you how it can be proven not to work, why homeopath's claims are impossible, and give patients the right information to allow them to make an informed decision on their healthcare.
"

They're starting with an open letter to Boots pharmacy...

Have a look and sign up.

Maybe we need to do something similar for NZ pharmacists?
