Selfish acts

Here is a very short but interesting entry i just picked up from badscienceblogs.

Hilarious, but disturbing as well.
It highlights what you need to have in your head to be an alternative practitioner.

We really need to take heed as these practices are slowly, but steadily, seeping into the cracks of our culture through our gullible that are desperate for answers.

What is sad is, that our gullible folks transform to our selfish folks when they succumb to these irrational fears that have been promoted via active marketing streams, not science backed journals.

It is a truly selfish thing to deny our future generations the lessons to critically judge a product just because you think taking it will be an easy way to solve all your problems, and you assume theirs too.

Like it or not, we all affect those around us... be it our kids, friends, parents, relatives etc.
If you hold any respect from them, anything you do will influence them to think that something is good for them or not.

If you sacrifice critical judgement just for a few shortcuts that are probably as fake as the claims they are based on, which you trust on faith through some marketing leader with a grand smile...then at that very moment, your endorsement will burden those around you with the weakness of that gullibility you carry.

Few people can accept the fact that paying for false hopes is not better than dealing with the truth.

If you cannot see the bigger picture. Imagine one day when a Quantum Pendant peddler's child, as gullible as his parents, convinces your own kids to fall for some scam or other. Yes, it will be your fault as an elder to not have educated them.

Toss your apathy aside.
Take a stand for reason, if you do not wish to see our future generations so easily fleeced or molded by irrational fear.
