Bravo! Well-written and exhaustively-researched, as usual, Acci. Seriously, I worry about you sometimes. Still, correct on all points and then some.

My personal past-time with the supporters of miracle cures and other quackery is to go through and count the logical and debate fallacies. “Hmmm,” I say, “Let’s see what we have here.. Argument from Ignorance.. Demanding Negative Proof.. Ooh.. reductio ad Hitlerum with a pre-emptive anti-Godwin.. That’s good…”

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_fallacies is a good reference for anyone wishing to argue on the Internet. If you can argue with someone’s position, without using *ANY* of those fallacies listed, then your position will be a very strong one.

1: Extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof. If it does what it says, you should have no problem with this.
2: What proof will you accept that you are wrong? You ask us to change our mind, but we cannot change yours?
3: It is not our responsability to disprove your claims, but rather your responsability to prove them.
4. Personal testamonials are not proof.

What part of ‘meow’ don’t you understand?

Yeh, but I bought it and it worked!! This forum is so closed minded, you all think conventional medicine is the only answer. Science doesn’t know everything! I used these products on my dead rabbit and it came back to life, so there.  wink

Actually, your mom just went out and got a new rabbit. Mr Bunnsy is buried under the rose bushes in the back, and the new one is more appropriately *Mrs* Bunnsy.

Really, though.  Accipter is once again long-winded, but right… Have we come to expect any less?

I have to admit it would be hard to put one over on him.  I don’t have near the patience he does in researching and expounding on the stuff our local nutjobs come up with.  Gotta give him credit for that.

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you’re a mile away and you have their shoes.

When life hands you lemons make apple juice. Then laugh while life tries to figure out how you did it.

Credit, cash, gold, or jewels:  I’ll take all of those.
