Welcome to my new blog

OK, it's a new academic year, so I am finally going to do something I have been meaning to do for a few years now, and start a blog. I will mainly post about my interests in quackery and pseudoscience, plus some more serious stuff about psychological research (especially on aggression and bullying), some political stuff, and probably some random musings on football, music and anything else that grabs my attention. Don't expect too much, though. PZ Myers I aint!

I look forward to reading, antipseudoscientist and former psych student that I am.

As you say, the mind-numbingly ridiculous sources of "mother tinctures" used as the essence of the homeopathic remedies should make anyone with any common sense dismiss the whole concept.

Apart from the ones you mention, like "Berlin Wall", the homeopaths have foisted such gems as dilutions of the "light of Venus", AIDS and positronium (antimatter) to name a few.

Thanks for the Welcome, Mike, and kudos for your efforts at UCLAN....how is the 'internal review' of homoeopathy going, any word?

@ Allo v Psycho

Sorry, but I will NOT be commenting here on any internal UCLAN matters, at least until the outcome of the review is made public...
