The miracle of water

As it's a celebration of God made incarnate, Christmas is a better time than most to think about the miraculous. The philosopher David Hume famously pointed out that a miracle is a violation of nature, and therefore impossible. And if it were to happen all the time, it would cease to be a miracle and would become a part of nature.

Today, rationalists use a different language. Nature has been replaced by science, and miracles by quackery. And quackery ceases to be quackery if it is finally proven by science in the same way that a miracle ceases to be one when it can be explained by science.

To explore the argument, let's take the controversial subject of homeopathy, the therapy that makes scientists and doctors apoplectic, simply because, for them, it can't possibly be anything other than placebo.

The real worry is that the drugs may be killing the patient, but there's no way of knowing for sure. The researchers say that fatalities recorded in the studies they were allowed to see were so badly reported that it was impossible to tell.

MMR: Parents do it for themselves

December 7th 2007, 11:36

Advocates of childhood immunisation consistently argue that there is no evidence to suggest that vaccines are dangerous. Claims that the MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) vaccine in particular causes autism has never been established. In fact, they say, every study has shown conclusvely there is no causal link.

Most of the studies 'proving' the safety of vaccines have tended to be small - often involving hundreds of children - and over quite short time frames.
