I have started a new series known as 'Skeptical Debates', in which I will debunk bad science.I thought I'd start with an easy one, but I'll give you a list.1. Homeopathy2. Gillian McKeith3. MMR- autism link4. Acupuncture5. Patrick Holford6. LHC 'disasters'Your role in each of my debates will be to eitherProve that what I am saying is not true by counterevidence orAsk questions of my data, sources etc. which I will then answer.

I could argue for homeopathy being effective even though it is just a placebo.
