The Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) in the UK has modified
their previous ban on the idiotic claims made by a group of charlatans in Bath, UK because they deem that specific claims on parts of their website to fall outside of their jurisdiction.
SO many questions and points to raise, the most pressing of which are:
1.) If their
capricious god can heal why the fuck doesn't it unless they ask it to?
2.) If they make this claim then why did they explicitly state in their disclaimer
that recipients of "Proximal Intercessory Prayer (PIP)" were told not to stop taking any medication if they were already on it.
3.) Also this lead me to their website and to discover that they are claiming this piece of crap
as "evidence" that PIP works.
It is fucking laughable some of the utter shit that makes it into some science journals now-a-days. I mean by all means test the shit out their claims but don't do it half-arsed with non-standard measurements and NOT in a clinical setting (hearing tests not in sound-proofed rooms but outside with lots of ambient noise, sight tests done mostly
during the day etc.) and with a group numbering more than 24. This is not a study; it's a fucking embarrassment.
