Pareidolia Skepticism/critical thinking

It’s a sign that that the homeopathic enchantment of Dr. Strange has worked!

The other day, I wrote about how the only use of homeopathy that makes sense is its use by a fictional character, namely Doctor Strange, The Sorcerer Supreme. Now, I have been fortunate enough to have been granted a sign that the homeopathic enchantment works! Woe be unto you skeptics!

Behold, a vision of the Eye of Agamatto on a pancake!

For those of you unaware of what the Eye of Agamatto is, it’s the mystic amulet that is Dr. Strange’s most powerful occult object. The eye contained within the amulet can, at Strange’s command, radiate brilliant light that allows him to see through all illusions and disguises. It also allows him to probe the minds and see the thoughts of those at whom it is aimed.

What more evidence do you need that the mystical magic of homeopathy is real? In the name of the deathless Vishanti and by the Hoary Hosts of Hoggoth, let it be so!

By Orac

Orac is the nom de blog of a humble surgeon/scientist who has an ego just big enough to delude himself that someone, somewhere might actually give a rodent's posterior about his copious verbal meanderings, but just barely small enough to admit to himself that few probably will. That surgeon is otherwise known as David Gorski.

That this particular surgeon has chosen his nom de blog based on a rather cranky and arrogant computer shaped like a clear box of blinking lights that he originally encountered when he became a fan of a 35 year old British SF television show whose special effects were renowned for their BBC/Doctor Who-style low budget look, but whose stories nonetheless resulted in some of the best, most innovative science fiction ever televised, should tell you nearly all that you need to know about Orac. (That, and the length of the preceding sentence.)

DISCLAIMER:: The various written meanderings here are the opinions of Orac and Orac alone, written on his own time. They should never be construed as representing the opinions of any other person or entity, especially Orac's cancer center, department of surgery, medical school, or university. Also note that Orac is nonpartisan; he is more than willing to criticize the statements of anyone, regardless of of political leanings, if that anyone advocates pseudoscience or quackery. Finally, medical commentary is not to be construed in any way as medical advice.
