Coyne on Naturopathy: "Anti-science", "Pre-scientific" - Mcleans 2010-01-07:

here, I briefly cite from a Mcleans.ca article written by Andrew Coyne that touched on naturopathy:

Coyne, A. (? ?) states in Mcleans.ca's "Coyne on Climategate: The Truth is Out There Somewhere" (2010-01-07):

"science has pushed the boundaries of human knowledge to limits never before imagined.  Yet all sorts of anti-scientific, indeed pre-scientific beliefs are flourishing at the same time, from the enduring appeal of naturopathy and other folk cures to the hysterias over childhood vaccines and genetically modified foods, all the way to the dreadful pseudoscience of 'intelligent design'."

Note: wow!
