You see, it's possible to prefer medicine without belitteling alternatives.
Not for you, you call people who follow through with their belief “kooks”.
But it’s not about preference, you can have both but I must question why you can’t do with just one.
I don’t mind people having an open mind my disagreement with you stems from your (patchy) support for anecdotal evidence.
You say that you have personal experience of fire walking and acupuncture so you know that the sceptics are wrong and you say this as though it is
meant to be mean something to everyone else.
But when it comes to faith healers, despite their being equal evidence, you lose the courage of your conviction and won’t place equal weight on this
evidence as you expect others to do with yours. The logical implication is that you don’t really place any more faith in anecdotal evidence than I
do; except when it suits your beliefs.
It’s not that you can’t have chocolate and vanilla it’s that if you were sincere in your OP you would have no problem with just having vanilla.
But you do so...
