So busy was I last week blogging about other things, somehow I missed an amazingly, jaw-droppingly idiotic defense of homeopathy Jeanette Winterson published in The Guardian earlier this week. As you might imagine, it was just begging for a heapin’ helpin’ of not-so-Respectful Insolence™. I mean, it was the dumbest article I’ve seen in a very long time. Unfortunately, other topics kept me from finding my way to it in a timely fashion. Fortunately, two excellent skeptical bloggers have torn the article to shreds, so much so that there is nothing left but a smear on the sidewalk where once stupidity stood proudly. So, be sure to check out:
- In Defense of Homeopathy (denialism blog)
- Sloppy Thinking about Homeopathy from The Guardian (NeuroLogica Blog)
Meanwhile, Ben Goldacre demolishes the very concept of homeopathy.
There, now I can rest for a while, the better to charge up my batteries for another week of blogging.
