If you are reading this anywhere other than on the conundrum, then this post is stolen.
I just saw a story on the news about a baby who had died from eczema. Her father is a homeopath and was treating her as a patient.
Now I don’t know all the details here, only what’s been reported in the media. I have read enough articles, read enough books, heard enough doctors and scientists speak about homeopathy, to convince me that it does not work.
What I don’t understand is, even if you did believe in homeopathy enough to become a homeopath. Even if you ignored all evidence contrary your belief in it’s benefits, how can you ignore the fact that your baby girl is dying before your very eyes? Even if you still clung to the belief that homeopathy works, wouldn’t you still try anything to save her? Wouldn’t you take her to a hospital?
If anyone can explain such bizarre behaviour, I’ll be interested to hear.
