Half of completely worthless is $29

By johnboy - 21 September 2011 25

reiki for $29

Bimbogeek has kindly directed my attention to a bomber deal on Living Social.

For the low, low price of $29 you can go to Scullin for Reiki instead of the usual $70 (which is also the going rate for horses).

Bear in mind this is a treatment on which wikipedia has this to say:

the evidence is insufficient to suggest that reiki is an effective treatment for any condition

What’s Your opinion?

No no, reiki really is quackery. Opinions also mean squat when faced with evidence (or a complete lack thereof).

And presumably when you refer to “real healers” you’re talking about people like surgeons and pharmaceutical chemists?

Yeah surgeons are real and preform procedures that result in you being healed, or not sometimes. They are real healers, and they don’t have flashy advertising either, yep. You get fakes in that industry too though, not as much though as it’s a regulated industry. But, I really see no massive negative result in being open minded to things , while being apprehensive about being a sucker and paying for something dumb. Try things for free if possible, go to a health expo or something. You may stumble across your own evidence that something works, no great fail if it don’t succeed. Having immediate negative attitudes towards things may result in having little chance of understanding something, which may lead to never experiencing things that ”aren’t supposed to work’. Yes, ”Quackery’s’ as you described exist, but in lots of areas of science that are questionable. UFO’s for one example, you have the nuts with outfits and drive around looking in the sky, and normal people who like to ask the question, but not automatically dismissing the idea due to it being slightly arrogant to think we are the only intelligent life forms. Just because you haven’t experienced something , doesn’t mean someone else hasn’t either, evidence or not.

does your MP have the magic cure for you when you are sick, and you walk out feeling better again immediately?

No, but he does have scientific proof that the stuff he prescribes works.
