Evolution Gone Wrong

Here’s a thought.

Homeopathy doesn’t work. That’s a given. (If you think it does work then you’re wrong, but you can simply pretend for the sake of this thought process that you accept that it’s bunk. Or you can substitute something you don’t believe in, such as evidence or integrity.) However, due to the placebo effect homeopathy can have some small positive effect, if you believe in it.

This means that homeopathy and similar quack therapies are ways to selectively cure the gullible and stupid. Look at that from an evolutionary point of view and it’s quite alarming. It would explain a few things, though.

People are essentially being bred to be gullible and stupid. Who thought that would be a good idea?
