Quickies: Leaving alt med, Satanists and abortion, and mis-reporting of feces in beards
- An alternative medicine believer’s journey back to science – “The Laidlers are doctors, and their sons, Ben and David, had been diagnosed with autism. For several years, on the advice of doctors and parents, the Laidlers treated their children with a wide range of alternative medicine techniques designed to stem or even reverse autistic symptoms.”
- Satanists claim abortion waiting periods violate their religious beliefs – “While the Satanists did misfire by taking aim at the clinic, as a public act of trolling, this stunt gets an A-plus. It exposes the double standards of those who claim to stand for “religious freedom,” and it highlights how waiting periods and other restrictions are actually an attempt to impose religious dogma about abortion on those who don’t agree with it.” From Cerberus40.

- No need for men to get flush-faced about feces in beards – “According to multiple news sites, beards can contain more poo than a toilet. I was curious to read the original study to see what the basis was for the investigation and the actual results.”
