This is just paraphernalia, but it's fun to think about. Unfortunately only in German: in the spiegel-online interview, a scientist argues that 'Homeopathy is a dogma' in contrast to science (orthodox medicine). The political background is the proposition to ban homeopathy from health care services. In the interview, the scientist argues that there is no scientific evidence for the effectiveness of homeopathy according to standardized tests. His main argument is that homeopathy is not 'scientific'- 'nicht wissenschaftlich'.
It reminds me of the Lysenko discussion Hans had brought up. But what is here flawed science? Homeopathy? Or the official standpoint that something has no effect as long as it does not fit the criteria of standardized tests? And who is the bad guy - politics that want to cut health care budget? Alternative medicine that fools people? Orthodox medicine that is fueled by the interests of pharma industry? In any case, all the elements of our climate discussions are here in this interview, from political influence to belief systems to conspiracy theories. Enjoy.
