Skeptics with a K: Special #007


QED has been and gone, so we’re taking a week off to recover.  But rather than leave you totally empty handed, we decided to put out this short interview from BBC Radio Five, featuring Marsh and a homeopath.  We’ll see you for a full episode next time!

    QED was immense, thanks ever so much everyone involved once again! It would be nice if the BBC did some research though. Homeopathist?

    Marsh was far too nice, but killing homoeopaths on the air is probably frowned upon 🙂

    Anyway isn’t prescribing homoeopathy for animals now illegal here in the UK?

    Oops! Not yet illegal but DEFRA are insisting on evidence of effectiveness for animal treatments.

    Yes. At least the homeopsychopath admitted it was a placebo effect. Then tried to say animals don’t suffer from placebo but Marsh put him straight.

    I see homeopath ended with the stance of “if they all OD-ed on aspirin, they’d be dead”.

    This routine seems to be all the rage with them on the subject of the homeopathy overdose campaign.

    Surely they must know that this is missing the point by a light-year and its a last-gasp attempt at saying something, anything.

    Homeopathetic.
