I have something of an issue with this forum. What if it was called the pedo coral? There is to much guilt by association which throws all babies out with the bath water in any sort of idea that might be percieved as unscientific. The fact is that science isnt god, and its well know that results can often be misleading or be presented in a manner to conform to whatever goal. In short, it can be a cult.

Fortunately for those who prefer less skeptical "cults", I'm pretty sure there are still several other forums where people happily discuss the topics found in the corral here.

no.
I can see the glass is half empty here. I was wrong to come here to see things disproved or proven.
