Playlist: Alternatives to Medicine

I try to save all the interesting videos I come across in to a Playlist of some sort, and videos that concern alternatives to medicines (AtMs) are no different.

The Playlist looks at a number of pseudo-scientific alternatives to medicine, and includes videos explaining some of the ways we come to believe they can work.

There are a couple of interviews on select AtMs, including the BBC Test of Homeopathy that would have netted then one million dollars US from the James Randi Educational Foundation (JREF) had they succeeded.

Richard Dawkins’ second episode from “The Enemies of Reason” entitled “The Irrational Health Service” features as the first on the list.

It’s a list that is open to change as videos come and go – if you have suggestions, let me know!

AronRa’s Foundational Falsehood Series

20120410-225806.jpg

In an effort to make it easier to promote science and critical thinking, I have made short links of AronRa’s “Foundational Falsehoods of Creationism”; the descriptions are rather brief, but if you have not watched the series, I highly recommend it.

AronRa puts forward much of the basis for why we know evolution happens, and exposes the fallacious arguments creationists use to refute evolution.

You can share *this* page with this link http://bit.ly/FFoCseries, or the image above: Feel free to use the image however you like.
