And that is a fact. It is up to you to choose whether death is permanent or just a stepping point in life.
pretty sure it's permanent and that it's not a choice
I've gotta say man, you really do hold a strong belief in this. Why are you so passionate about it, to the point that you are rebutting every single post in this thread?
I understand your point that the body has a healing mechanism; it definitely does, albeit a fairly weak one. But the issue with your argument is that there is a very definitive limit to this; for example cancer is an example of this breaking. Defective cells, either due to mutation or some other factor, begin rapidly multiplying, and because the bodies defence mechanism is unable to separate a haywire cell versus a normal functioning one, it is unable to combat it. The defensive mechanism is very primitive, and is absolutely not as complex or as tactile as homeopaths believe.
This is entirely my own opinion, but I disagree with your point that you have control over your body - you unfortunately don't. Your consciousness is a product of evolution, you are a thinking machine designed exclusively to make decisions that may prolong your life and allow you to spread your seed
. Think about pain, about subconciousness and reflex actions. Think about our own existence. If we were in complete control of our body, why would we even need to feel pain? Why are we hard-wired to enjoy sex so much? Your body is more intelligent and powerful than the consciousness that resides within it.*
This is purely a philosophical idea. This has no real-life consequences, this is just a thought. But homeopathy does
has real-life consequences. I would like you to find one, significantly cited (+50 citations excluding self-published papers), peer-reviewed and published research article proving or heavily suggesting that homeopathy works. I will discredit using the journal "Homeopathy" as that is a biased source.
I'm not a doctor, however I believe the state of how advanced and how successful modern medicine is indicates it does not need the burden of proof.Article researching the differences in publication of CAM (inc. homeopathy) in conventional and pro-homeopathy journalsAustralian government statement after research into CAM & HomeopathySwiss Govt. report on CAM & Homeopathy
It's a bit of a general point (not directed towards you exclusively), but what really irks me nowadays is this echo-chamber mentality that exists. People are so defensive of their opinions and so hell-bent on being "right" that they actively refuse to acknowledge any sort of rebuttal to their viewpoint. You can see it in politics, with the left and right completely isolating themselves from each other; you can see it with anti-vaxers and pro-life / pro-choice movements. In order for any progress or change to happen, people need to lose their self-righteousness and see, accept, and take on the view from the other side.
I enjoy talking to people who dislike the things I enjoy, because it allows you to see more things that you may not have seen yourself. Case in point, chatting to my brothers' flatmate about the TV series Black Mirror. I absolutely adore the show, but he found it boring and quite cliche. We had an interesting discussion about it; afterwards he had a bit more appreciation for the show and I was able to see and acknowledge the flaws I didn't even know existed. We both changed our opinions from our prior; and that's a step forward.
