Some of these posts caught my eye. There was one that had something to do with being gay and another one that had to do with ufo's. The more weird it is the more fun it is to read.

Yes, yes, a million times yes!

I've got relatives who do this all the time. What I end up finding out when I ask them about evidence for whatever alt med nonsense they're spouting is they just read a bunch of stuff online. They just find a bunch of things that already support their viewpoint and take it as proof without really probing any further. It usually ends with either a "you're naive" comment about trusting the FDA (remember, there's a global conspiracy), or just "well that's just my opinion so drop it".

There haven't been any comments here in a while, but I'll just throw out the word research.

Just like the common misunderstanding about what a scientific "theory" is, this is something I hear way too often.

"I've done my (own) research", the altie will say, and usually not mean research but a Google search.

Who dared call Orac unprofessional? Lemme at 'em!

How about "unprofessional," as in, "that's so unprofessional of you."

There's a lot of doggerel out there, Phlegm.

But since that's one that might skip my mind, I'll be typing it up tonight before I forget.

How did this list get so long without "free will!" ?

Your other transgressions include Observation and Experimentation (by others, if not by you personally)

If you haven't been there before 'astray' is lovely this time of year...

2009-05-26T01:20:49.434-05:00

I'm sure this is close to "Science Doesn't Know Everything!" but you should tackle the Perfect Solution fallacy- you know, the "this vaccine only cures AIDS 99.9999% of the time, so it's no better than rat poison!" mentality.

Deniers of... But microscopes! We can look. And... and... penicillin. (It kills the little things and makes you not get infections...)

Oh, wait, I'm using logic. That's where I'm going astray, right?

2009-05-23T19:54:50.126-05:00

One that's been making the rounds lately: "[Famous Scientist] Recanted On His Deathbed!" Naturally, it's always the discoverer or proposer of the theory that the claimant's pet woo is at odds with, ie. deniers of germ theory saying Pasteur recanted on his deathbed.

Wow, I didn't even realize that was a homeopathic luminary. I just figured it was your average, run-of-the-mill crackpot.

I'm starstruck!

Prompted by the recent discussion over the PseudoScienceBloggers at ScienceBlogs, and also recently showed up when Dana Ullman stopped by Akusai's blog: "You're not an expert, you can't comment."

It probably did at some point.
I seem to recall Margaret Thatcher using the phrase 'Victorian values', thus striking terror into the hearts of everyone who had read Dickens.

Are my memories inaccurate in recalling that during the 1980's family values actually meant something that mattered like eliminating abuse and neglect?

Oh, how convenient! It's good to see our two countries are united in the vocabulary of intolerance.

Really? Here in America it means the same thing. ;)

'Family Values' would be good. Here in Britain, it always seems to be code for 'hang the gays' or 'lock up single mothers'.

2008-07-23T23:27:00.000-05:00

Just thought of one for you that drives me insane: "Family Values"

(Code for "Fundamentalist Christian Values").

It might be a bit too similar to your "Moral Fibre" one, though.

Again, common although maybe a variation on 156. What the hell are you lot doing with your lives?

2008-06-12T15:44:00.000-05:00

One we've had a number of times - people claiming that our attention to detail and accuracy indicates a suspicious amount of effort. Because, of course, someone who writes 40 books, riddled with errors, swims with the dolphins. People who point out errors, why, they are guilty of sedition (seriously, word has been used).

Hears one that's driving me insane at the moment:

"Doctors don't consider the patient, they just treat the illness/symptoms"

or

"[Woo merchants] believe in treating the patient, not just the illness/symptoms"

Given the Hippocratic oath, the Declaration of Geneva, and the various codes of ethics of the various professional medical associations, the suggestion that doctors historically don't look after the general health of their patients is so wrong it's not funny.
