Re: Corbyn and Homeopathy

Surely he is making the same mistake that lots of people seem to do - confusing herbal medicine with homeopathy? Lumping together herbal medicine with homeopathy gives the former practice the same air of impossibility and detracts from the demonstrated benefits and future promise of using plants as ...

Re: The Pope doesn't believe in Hell...?

Re: Arthur C Clarke.

Clarke was wrong. It's Scorpio the Sceptic. Saggytarians are believers.
