Not the brightest sparks seem to rise in African governments.
Bless, this halfwit thinks he’s a leader.
I think it’s so cute when an evil thug dictator likes to play president. Can’t wait for him to be overthrown by the next henchman.
Sounds a lot like the anti-vac nuts who think vaccines cause autism and drinking carrot juice will cure pancreatic cancer.
next he’s going to tell us about his herbal mixture that turns black people white
@jwrappaport: That’s an irrelevant straw-man comparison.
@MrEguy: I believe you mean straw-man argument and it’s neither a straw-man argument not irrelevant. It’s EXACTLY like anti-vac-ers nuttiness. I’m sure you are very offended by any refutation of holistic/natural/voodoo you deign to call “medicine” but the truth is that there is real medicine, which as been proven to work and then there’s everything else.
@MrEguy: It would behoove you to actually learn your logical fallacies. It is neither a straw-man argument nor is it a non-sequitur, as the two subjects of comparison are vulnerable to an identical criticism: favoring superstition to evidence-based medicine that is subjected to peer review. It could not be more clear or on-point.
With respect to their treatment of medicine, this clown is no different from Steve Jobs, who eschewed removal of his highly operable islet cell tumor in the hopes that his new veganism, acupuncture, and herbal remedies would cure him. Needless to say, not even the mighty Steve Jobs could alter the basic pathophysiologic processes that lead to his untimely demise.
To paraphrase Richard Feynman, if you don’t like this universe and its physical principles, you’re welcome to find another one.
@jwrappaport: Millions die of AIDS in Africa because of this woo. Meanwhile, the Northern White Rhino is hunted to near extinction for equally ineffective Chinese medicine. And Americans STILL can’t understand why it is OK to buy sugar pills and magnet bracelets. Americans STILL can’t see why the nonsense that they allow KILLS those less fortunate. We are just rich enough to afford placebos. Africans are far less fortunate. Ah the pity of it all.
Steve Jobs was taking herbal remedies? For how long? Maybe for him, it was just far too late…
@Natural Anthony: No, he ignored medical advice when his cancer was completely treatable and died because homeopathic medicine is a sham perpetuated by those who revel in suffering.
