Con-Meds next move

I think I may have stumbled upon the Professional Homeopathic Skeptics next plan of attack:

So…Colquhoun is planning to target the homeopathic colleges next, perhaps he’s modeling this next attack on the AMAs (American Medical Association) very successful campaign against homeopathic medical colleges in 19c America?

This campaign against homeopathy is fascinating to watch…although ultimately as futile as a campaign against gravity.

Is this professor paid by the pharmaceutical industry?

Basically our learned prof is going to rake over the academic syllabus of a Bsc. in homeopathy…then inevitably announce to the world that it is voodoo hogwash, shouldn’t be a science degree etc etc. If the prof really did worry about the standards of education he should bring his concerns up with the accrediting organisation.

    Colquhoun is a professor? So am I and all who are homoeopaths. We profess to the scientific nature of homoeopathy. That this science is different from what Colquhoun professes to does not make any difference.
    First he has to define what is science. If it is the old meaning then science should lead to knowlege. If we are to follow his definition we end up with mere information. If information is science, then an advert is scientific, even if it gives false information.
    Thus his brand of science is like false advert claims – it professes that his way of conduction medical research with RCT is the only valid means to come to meaningful conclusions on what is a viable medicine. That is both narrowminded and misleading.
    If he wants to rake our education over the coals, why don’t we do the same with his brand of learning how to prescribe poison?

    Here is an interesting video giving an insiders view of the so called science behind medicine.
