ttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_enemies_of_reason (I created that Wiki article from scratch!)

“Is it rational that the dead can communicate with the living and give sound advice on how they should live their lives? What about sticking pins into your body to free the flow of Chi energy and cure your illness? Or the bending of spoons using your mind alone? Is that rational? Richard Dawkins doesn’t think so, and feels it is his duty to expose those areas of belief that exist without scientific proof, yet manage to hold the nation under their spell. He will take on the world’s leading proponents in their field of expertise, meet the victims who have used them and expose the history of the movements – from the charlatans who have milked these practices to the experiments and testing that have failed to produce conclusive results.”

Part 1 airs on Channel 4 on August 13th.

Unfair Salt Creek. This poor faith healer’s picture was in the paper. she did not post it nor would a pharmaceutical company use it. Richard posts his pictures on his website and he looks like a pharmaceutical model. I still cracked up laughing when I saw that picture. Killed me

Got to agree with Frank on that one ... it’s a tactic worthy of the Rush Limbaugh set.

My bad. There are, indeed, much jucier targets, richer than some pharmaceutical companies, more powerful than a locomotive breath:

For the sleep of the just. Talk to your doctor:

Remember, it’s really important to note that he is, indeed, a real doctor.
