It's deniable because the evidence is weak.
Not unlike how Christians claim prayer really does physically heal the body because god answers the prayers. Meanwhile god seemingly ignores most prayers, and of course never heals amputees. All suggestive that if it 'works' then it's psychosomatic as Puppylove suggests.
That's the peculiar thing with your kind of reasoning. It never really addresses all the times it doesn't 'work'. How many times has someone uttered the lord's prayer only to have disaster strike anyways?
