How to become Famous?

Dear all,

"How to become Famous?" is an easy question: Just babble some crap, and then others babble the same crap, and, like in a kindergarten singsong ALL babble the same crap - AND, most important! - they quote each other, each time lifting up the others, and themselves.

Really, this is how "science" is done. At least, how it is done in the Skeptics Kingdom.

Here is a new example:

"Homeopathy—A lively relic of the prescientific era"

Again and again they ruminate the ever same crap. And so they get well-known, are quoted or interviewed by journalists, etc. Again and again. Again and again the ever same crap.

Honestly, homeopaths and other esotters are right in their critique of skeptics. Skeptics have no idea how the fraud homeopathy works, and they babble all day long.

It is disgusting.

Edzard Ernst now mentions some REAL work:

"A series of homeopathic remedies-related severe drug-induced liver injury from South India"

One man I follow for some time now, and I think we all should do it:

"TheLiverDoc @theliverdr
Hepatologist,Physician-Scientist battling #Ayush misinformation.
Columnist @MorningContext
Medical & Health India

He is in India. He is attacked, and he needs our help.

Please, do some real work and help fighters for REAL medicine, and, please, stop ruminating skeptic crap.

Thank you,

Aribert Deckers


English is a dominant language. Not because it is a good language (it is not!!!), but because of political developments in the last century (or TWO centuries?) (or the last THREE centuries???). Well, whatever happened, things are as they are: English is dominant. So, to get known, to get fame, one has to speak and write English.

As you certainly will agree with me, native English speakers do have an advantage with this...

On the other hand we have all those, who are not as lucky with English as their first language, or with a good linguistic education.

To be frank: doom looms...

"How to become Famous?", I said that in my above post, is easy to do: babble all day long and do it together.

"Homeopathy—A lively relic of the prescientific era"

A coelacanth is a nice old guy, a living fossil. In German we call it "ein lebendes Fossil".

It is a living relic of an old age. This just as a reminder. Because...

"A lively relic of the prescientific era"

in German (according to

"Ein lebendiges Relikt aus der vorwissenschaftlichen Zeit"

There IS a difference, I dare say. says:

lively  adj.   lebhaft
lively  adj.   lebendig
lively  adj.   quicklebendig
lively  adj.   flott
lively  adj.   munter
lively  adj.   quirlig
lively  adj.   spritzig   - lebendig
lively  adj.   peppig [coll.]
lively  adj.   kregel (Northern Germany)

Would you call something as brain-dead as homeopathy "lively"?
