I’ve already criticized Bill Maher for his religulous views on medicine, particularly after he was awarded the Richard Dawkins Award for allegedly promoting both atheism AND good science (yup, promoting science is in the official rules). But I’d hoped that his growing involvement with such intellectual luminaries like Richard Dawkins, who’s even done a television special on anti-medical quackery, might lead to someone setting Maher straight on how medical science works and why believing in so-called “alternative” “medicine” is no less religulous than believing in an invisible sky daddy. Though I doubted it.
Well, it seems Maher continues to believe in utter nonsense when it comes to medical science:
Wow! Is this Overtime With Bill Maher or Deep Thoughts By Sarah Palin? As usual, Orac does a comprehensive refutation to Maher’s idiocy.
