Crap-Based Mailbag

Can we give suggestions? I found this crap today: Why is it that the alternative health people who supposedly have all the answers have the crappiest websites?

The answer to your first question is: yes. The answer to your second question is complex and must be answered in stages. Stage 1 is an intensive study to determine the veracity of the assumption behind the question. The results of this study (conducted by the Crap-Based Medicine team) follow.

    Ooh, splendid. If we can make suggestions, I feel it is my obligation to bring this: to your attention. Weeeird!

    …nurr….graphs are too hard…they look all mathy…can we get an animated gif instead…maybe something with a dancing homunculus…

  3. GimpyEstrada Says:

    Right, right. I like what you’ve done here. I agree, though, a little bit too mathy.

  4. Dale Says:

    It’s hilarious how every ‘alt health’/’remedy’ website or book talks of the ‘truth revealed’ as if they’re not selling complete bs, and completely deceiving consumers.

    Hi, that is my website, the I found where you had linked to my site and thought I’d come and say hello. What a blessing. You are just what I am looking for.

    The reason the site looks crappy is because I built it and a web designer I am not. I am however a fairly avid researcher. The science behind that “catch your eye” page is vitally important. I do hope you will take the time to research a bit more for yourself.

    I am not here to advertise anything, especially what is on that webpage and what it pertains to. I am here to make an offer to share what we have learned with you.

    There is a free research guide that is available there. Take one just for stopping by. Bookmark the page because you never know when you may just want to come back or share it with someone you care about.

    Blessings to you and yours……Vickie Barker

    @Vickie: Ron Paul for President? Are you fucking high? He should be named emperor!

    “When truth is lost, freedom is lost, because when you do not have true information to base your decisions on, you essentially lose the freedom to make your own, effective, decisions.” – Dr. Walter Belford

    Bearing the above in mind, when are you taking your website down?

  8. Vickie Barker Says:

    Not that a taking down of a website would be necessary but more so a massive overhaul may be warranted if a time comes that the Nobel Prize awarded to Otto Warburg and Linus Pauling be revoked based on faulty science and facts. (I don’t see that happening.)

    Additional edits may be needed should discredit become known in the work of the other insider doctors, researchers and scientists such as Keith Brewer, Hans Neiper and Fredrick Klenner, Brian Peskin and Randal Fitzgerald. (So far I’ve not seen any sound rebuttles of their work.)

    Adjustments and updates would always be warranted if and when facts might become known that there is anything more effective, safer, cheaper and more convenient at healing the body outside of the human body itself. (I don’t see that happening either)

    With that in mind, I don’t see a need to ever take the website down.

    The human body is truly an amazing piece of work when it has what it was intended to have when it was Created. Why not learn how to let it work better for everyone?

    After reviewing, Needs to add more animated gifs. Recommend:

    Neither of Linus Paulings Nobel prizes was for Medicine…

    Not getting wary yet??

    Warburg’s Nobel was in 1931 in Medicine for work he had done over the preceeding 20 years. Are we still dressing like in 1931 ? Do we still pretend nothing has happened politically or economically since 1931? Would you rather use a 1931 radio set or listen to a circa 2009 podcast ?
    Warburg’s problem was to think that his discovery of glycolysis in tumour cells was the end of the story. This is the point where he and real science parted ways.

    Eight decades is a long time and things have moved on. Even by the end of his lifetime, Warburg was reportedly considered a crank who could never get beyond the promise of his early Nobel.

    So I’m sorry to tell you that you are going to have to do better than appealing to a couple of discredited cranks (both brilliant scientists in their early life and monomaniac kooks later on). Incidentally this is known as the fallacy of appeal to authority. Look it up if you haven’t heard of it…

  11. smersh Says:

    Oh and you also should look up how to spell ‘rebuttle’

    Nothing says serious and competent medical professional like an animated gif.

  13. Seathrun O Coileain Says:

    Wow, is scary. I sincerely hope this Vickie believes the crap she’s pushing, since it would be reprehensible to push this stuff to make a buck if she knew how ineffective and potentially dangerous some of this stuff is. My head hurts from reading all the nonsense. I don’t want to criticize any further since I suspect the web site author may be mentally ill. I’m afraid to comment at the website because I don’t want this crap cluttering up my inbox.

    Amazing blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?
    A design like yours with a few simple adjustements would really make my
    blog jump out. Please let me know where you got your theme.
    Thanks a lot
