Over at the talk page on the note to skeptics of Wiki4CAM, a woo says this about skeptics:
They feel that EBM is the ultimate extension of science but have never studied in detail the limitations of EBM.Yes. You heard him right. He says that asking for evidence before you cure people with it has limitations. And guess what he also says?
But as of now, not everything related to CAM can be scientifically validated. The demand by skeptics that every statement should be supported by a scientific evidence is not possible at present. CAM community feels that EBM does not suit perfectly to many CAM modalities. Plus there has been little large-scale research on CAM so far.
So, basically, science can't test CAM. Yup. Science can't test CAM. We can't go, "hey, let's see what happens when we give people acupuncture compared to real medicine!" It's utterly impossible to do so. I think this is called special pleading. Learn about it, dumbasses!
By the way, there has been plenty of research; enough to conclude that you're dead wrong.
The new show Evolve on the History Channel is, as everyone knows by now, awesome. I fully expect it to get more awesome when it shows its next episode- on sex. I fully expect to laugh my ass off. Also, I will kill them if they don't mention bonobos.

I've switched to a new way of doing things. I've switched to using the NKJV as found here so that it's a lot easier to make the goddamn things instead of typing it straight from the Bible.
1 Now this is the genealogy of the sons of Noah: Shem, Ham, and Japheth. And sons were born to them after the flood.
2 The sons of Japheth were Gomer, Magog, Madai, Javan, Tubal, Meshech, and Tiras. 3 The sons of Gomer were Ashkenaz, Riphath,[a] and Togarmah. 4 The sons of Javan were Elishah, Tarshish, Kittim, and Dodanim.[b] 5 From these the coastland peoples of the Gentiles were separated into their lands, everyone according to his language, according to their families, into their nations.
6 The sons of Ham were Cush, Mizraim, Put,[c] and Canaan. 7 The sons of Cush were Seba, Havilah, Sabtah, Raamah, and Sabtechah; and the sons of Raamah were Sheba and Dedan.
8 Cush begot Nimrod; he began to be a mighty one on the earth. 9 He was a mighty hunter before the LORD; therefore it is said, “Like Nimrod the mighty hunter before the LORD.” 10 And the beginning of his kingdom was Babel, Erech, Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar. 11 From that land he went to Assyria and built Nineveh, Rehoboth Ir, Calah, 12 and Resen between Nineveh and Calah (that is the principal city).
Nimrod. Fucking Nimrod.
3 Mizraim begot Ludim, Anamim, Lehabim, Naphtuhim, 14 Pathrusim, and Casluhim (from whom came the Philistines and Caphtorim).
15 Canaan begot Sidon his firstborn, and Heth; 16 the Jebusite, the Amorite, and the Girgashite; 17 the Hivite, the Arkite, and the Sinite; 18 the Arvadite, the Zemarite, and the Hamathite. Afterward the families of the Canaanites were dispersed. 19 And the border of the Canaanites was from Sidon as you go toward Gerar, as far as Gaza; then as you go toward Sodom, Gomorrah, Admah, and Zeboiim, as far as Lasha. 20 These were the sons of Ham, according to their families, according to their languages, in their lands and in their nations.
21 And children were born also to Shem, the father of all the children of Eber, the brother of Japheth the elder. 22 The sons of Shem were Elam, Asshur, Arphaxad, Lud, and Aram. 23 The sons of Aram were Uz, Hul, Gether, and Mash.[d] 24 Arphaxad begot Salah,[e] and Salah begot Eber. 25 To Eber were born two sons: the name of one was Peleg, for in his days the earth was divided; and his brother’s name was Joktan. 26 Joktan begot Almodad, Sheleph, Hazarmaveth, Jerah, 27 Hadoram, Uzal, Diklah, 28 Obal,[f] Abimael, Sheba, 29 Ophir, Havilah, and Jobab. All these were the sons of Joktan. 30 And their dwelling place was from Mesha as you go toward Sephar, the mountain of the east. 31 These were the sons of Shem, according to their families, according to their languages, in their lands, according to their nations.
32 These were the families of the sons of Noah, according to their generations, in their nations; and from these the nations were divided on the earth after the flood.
Ahhh, genealogies. Is there anything more goddamn boring in the Bible?
