Another interesting DC’s Improbable Science article, this time highlighting the woo-ness of certain “degrees” at Thames Valley University and the lack of critical thinking that is leading to the increase of dumb and dumber “degrees” at a number of universities.

I was reading another great article at DC’s Improbable Science, and I was laughing at the antics of the University of Wales but also crying at their contradictory and inconsistent messages on using scientific rigour but who were really actively supporting quackery. Money, money, money.

Seems that quackery is taking a back-door entry into good universities. The article at DC’s Improbable Science explains more.

Vigilance required here otherwise we’ll suffer even more from the ills wrought by these witch-doctors.

I believe that homeopaths are dangerous. And The Society of Homeopaths is not only complicit in their apparent commitment of inaction against their members who make unsubstantiated claims on cures, but they are also immoral in their commitment of action against those who point out the Society’s inaction. The Quackometer article gives further updates of the failure of self-regulation within the Society of Homeopaths. What I took from this is self-evident but needs to be repeated…the deluded cannot be allowed to regulate the deluded.
