Bogus faith healers fishing for victims in Leicester, police warn

Posted by doctore0 on May 18, 2015

Ehrrm all faith healers are bogus :)

Police have issued a new warning about bogus faith healers who trick people into handing over cash for ‘cures’ for everything from cancer to financial trouble.

Officers spoke out after recovering a number of advertising leaflets in the Belgrave area of Leicester in the past couple of weeks.

They also confirmed two suspects are currently under investigation for allegedly conning people out of money.

The force has previously spoken out against ‘healers’ who claim to be able to use prayer to lift curses, heal broken marriages and solve financial problems.

Others who have targeted the city have said they could cure illnesses including cancer and HIV.

Inspector Ben Gillard, commander of Leicester’s Spinney Hill Park police station, said his officers had been alerted to a new batch of leaflets which have been delivered to homes or left on car windscreens in recent weeks.

Insp Gillard said: “This is still very much a live issue because people are still being subjected to these leaflets being put through their front doors or left on their cars.

“The danger is vulnerable people will turn to these people for help.

“They are predators and they will promise anything as long as it makes them money.

“The people who do this know that if they knock on 100 doors they will find someone who will believe in them and give them money.

Faith healer sues atheist video blogger for using science to expose him on YouTube as a ‘swindler’

Posted by doctore0 on May 8, 2015

All faith healers are swindlers or insane or combination of that!

A self-described faith healer has filed a lawsuit against atheist video blogger Stephanie Guttormson after she posted a video debunking his claim that he was a medical professional.

Guttormson, who is Operations Director for the Richard Dawkins Foundation, posted a video to YouTube last December explaining why she was skeptical that Adam Miller’s 1977 near death experience (NDE) gave him special abilities to heal people.

“Let’s start by pointing out that the germ theory of disease accounts for how illnesses affect us,” Guttormson pointed out. “He makes this claim that these experiences in your lives and traumas create dark cellular structure — whatever that is — and that by invoking this magic spirit, it will come down and break up this — quote, unquote — dark cellular structure.”

“Sometimes we want the answers so badly and want to help so badly that we’ll believe just about anything,” she added in a subsequent video. “Usually out of fear and hopelessness and desperation.”

“Adam Miller is a charlatan, he’s a swindler, he’s a snake oil salesman. You risk your lives delaying or forgoing proper medical treatment by going to him for help. And more importantly, for believing his unsubstantiated claims.”

Kenya Bans New Churches Amid ‘Miracle-Faking Spree’

Posted by doctore0 on November 18, 2014


godscamPrompted by news coverage of alleged illegal activity by pastors promising miracles, Kenya’s attorney general has banned new religious organizations from registering as the East African nation moves to enforce stricter regulations on churches, mosques, and temples.

The registration ban will be in place indefinitely, and existing religious organizations must file details of their registration status and financial returns, according to the Daily Nation. Meanwhile, Kenyan attorney general Githu Muigai will meet today with religious leaders from organizations including the Kenya Episcopal Conference, the National Council of Churches of Kenya, the Hindu Council of Kenya, the Supreme Council of Kenya Muslims, and the Inter-Religious Council of Kenya to discuss what new regulations might look like, according to First Digital TV.

Mark Kariuki, chairman of the Evangelical Alliance of Kenya, said in advance of Friday’s meeting that Muigai’s move to stop church registration and regulate churches amounted to persecution, according to Kenya’s Standard.

“We call on all Christians to support us and stand with us,” he said. “When it comes to matters of faith, people are willing to die for the faith and we will stand firm with the church.”

The government response came after TV station KTN’s Jicho Pevu and Inside Story broadcast a “Prayer Predators” exposé of preacher Victor Kanyari, whom the station claimed had been making money from his followers by asking them for advance payment for prayers and miracles

Treating Ebola with Homeopathy

Posted by doctore0 on August 11, 2014

WTF… homeopathy madness.. sheesh

How to Make Your Own Ebola Remedy

What you need:
1. A face mask and gloves
2. Two bottles (50 ml up to 500 ml glass or plastic bottles) with caps
3. Clean water (mineral or tap water)
4. An Ebola sample: some spit or other disease product, such as blood, from a person infected with Ebola, or who is suspected sick with it. Any small quantity will do, even a pinhead.
5. An alcoholic liquid, such as whisky, brandy, rum, etc.
6. Half an hour of your time.

Procedure:
1. Fill the bottle with water, leaving about 20% space at the top.
2. Place the Ebola sample in the water in the bottle.
3. Close the top of the bottle with the cap.
4. Hold the bottle and strike it hard against a solid surface, such as a large book, 40 times.
5. Pour out the contents of the bottle.
6. Refill the bottle with water (the fluid remaining on the inside surface of the bottle will serve as the next Ebola sample).
7. Repeat steps 3 to 6 a total of 30 times.

Using this stock bottle, you can supply the Ebola remedy to as many people you want. With one drop from the stock bottle as an Ebola sample you can produce another stock bottle to give to someone else. Instead of the original Ebola sample you used above to make the original stock bottle, you use a drop from the first stock bottle. This process can be carried out ad infinitum, supplying a whole city, etc., if needed.

Taking Your Home-Made Ebola Remedy

For prevention:
1. Place a teaspoonful of your Ebola remedy from the stock bottle into a cup filled with water.
2. Stir the water five times with a disposable spoon or stick.
3. Take a sip from the cup.
4. During the epidemic, take a sip once or twice a day, stirring five times before taking the sip.
5. Refill the cup as needed after striking the stock bottle against a hard surface five times.

If you are sick with Ebola:
1. Place a teaspoonful of the Ebola remedy from your stock bottle into a cup filled with water.
2. Stir the water five times with a disposable spoon or stick.
3. Take a sip every 15 minutes, stirring five times each time until you notice improvement, then stop.
4. On improving, you can ease off and take the remedy every hour or so, again stirring five times before taking the remedy each time.
5. Refill the cup as needed after striking the stock bottle against a hard surface five times.
