The video for the homeopathy “debate” at the Natural History Museum two weeks ago is up, it’s me and Dr Peter Fisher, Clinical Director of the NHS Royal Intergalactic Homeopathic Hospital in Queen’s Square. It feels to me as if some of the discussion might be missing, looking at the timebar, but I haven’t had a chance to watch it all yet.
As I remember it, Peter’s talk involves rather a lot on how Dawkins said something a bit stupid about homeopathy once in an introduction to someone else’s book 7 years ago, and there was a TV program four years ago which he didn’t like very much either. Then I rather recklessly try and jam the entire foundations of evidence based medicine into 15 minutes of hand waving. Unfortunately the headmounted microphone they make you wear for these things made my normally excellent and big hair look a bit rubbish, which I fear may have undermined my case.
Oh, but stick with it to the end, because the homeopaths in the audience discussion are the real stars. Believe me. Enjoy:
