Atheist
About Me:
To borrow a well used phrase, I am a devout atheist who preaches the true faith of logic and science at any opportunity. I enjoy religious, theological and philosophical debates, especially with religious people, my favourite part being when they finally say "It's true because I believe it!" or words to that effect.

My favourite saying is 'Don't argue with an idiot, they will bring you down to their level and then beat you with experience'

Who knew? There's a college of bullshit!

I was meandering through the internet and Twitter and came across this:

http://college-of-practical-homeopathy.com/

There is a real life COLLEGE OF HOMEOPATHY!

I wonder if the lessons consist of the lecturer breathing inside the classrooms once a week, so that you get an 'essence of lecturer'?  Or the notes written on an A4 sheet and then each person on the course getting 1/50,000 of the sheet?

It begger's…

How, just how, is this allowed in this day and age?

I found this on the the Freethinker site. Disgusted, shocked and dumbfounded are some the emotions that I went through whilst reading it:

And then another poster found this photograph from later in the set, WTF?!

I cannot understand why this OBVIOUS child abuse, in the name of religion, is being allowed to continue...
