    Been wanting to see a thread dedicated to the ridicule of the other great religions of our time: New Age, ghosts, alternative medicine, GMO hysteria, anti-vaccination, youtube alien and conspiracy theorists, crystals, feng shui and all sorts of other shite.

    If you'd like to join me and laugh at the stupid and gullible who regard themselves as too enlightened for mainstream religion yet reject the scientific method, this is the place.

    Or rather, Tasmania is the place:

    She knows what's up. That's the grin of a woman who knows how to fleece dumb merkins.

    Health Minister assumes people can tell the difference between real medicine and "a novelty"

    Not when you legitimise It you dumbarse!

    Wonder if she agrees with his assessment

    The anti vaxxer movement is getting ridiculous.
    The other day I had to explain why the flu shot isn't a live strain, this was to someone that actually works in a pharmacy.
    They need to get kids doing referencing from like grade 5 so people aren't so gullible to believe something without legitimate evidence.

    The only legitimate anti vax paper was disputed years and years ago and yet like 20% are not vaccinating their kids.

    The bubble these merkins live in. Is it greedy cynicism or mere stupidity?

    I know a few people who live in Nimbin who would have a go at a few people in this thread, but no need to worry because they don't have internet connection. :)

    SOME forms of "alternative medicine" have been used and have worked for thousands of years.

    Because it is the salient point
    If fairy dust and sniffing rhinoceros testicles did work as medicine then they would be adopted as medicines

    It's just the whole farging point
