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.”

My crazy country :)
A large and unusual rock will be moved today to make way for a new road in the municipality of Álftanes, close to Reykjavík. An announcement from the Icelandic Road Administration states that the rock will be placed by the side of the road close to similar rock formations.
“A pact between elves and men,” explains clairvoyant Ragnhildur Jónsdóttir who wrote to the Mayor of Garðabær on behalf of the elves in 2012.
A controversial road project
Moving the rock has been somewhat controversial and the new placement of the rock is no coincidence. In 2013 the story of this rock, believed to be the legendary Ófeigskirkja- an elf church- made international news.
Galadriel, the Lady of Lórien as she appears in Peter Jackson’s film version of Tolkien’s …
“Elf advocates have joined forces with environmentalists to urge the Icelandic Road and Coastal Commission and local authorities to abandon a highway project building a direct route from the Alftanes peninsula, where the president has a home, to the Reykjavik suburb of Gardabær. They fear disturbing elf habitat and claim the area is particularly important because it contains an elf church,” wrote the Associated Press at the time.

More on this madness/religion…
Indian religious “guru” Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh has been accused of persuading 400 of his estimated 50 million followers worldwide to cut off their own testicles to “bring them closer to God.” The incident took place in 2000 at a hospital run by the 47-year-old multi-millionaire spiritual leader in India, but has only recently come to light due to the victims’ fear of retribution from Ram Rahim’s followers, or fear of being made social outcasts if they came forward with their stories. We take a look at the investigation into the alleged manipulation, in this Lip News clip with Elliot Hill and Mark Sovel.

Wow some serious stupid in progress..
David Tredinnick says that astrology and complementary medicine could help healthcare and opponents are ‘racially prejudiced’
A Conservative MP has claimed that astrology could have “a role to play in healthcare”.
David Tredinnick said astrology, along with complementary medicine, could take pressure off NHS doctors, but acknowledged that any attempt to spend taxpayers’ money on consulting the stars would cause “a huge row”.
He criticised the BBC and TV scientist Professor Brian Cox for taking a “dismissive” approach to astrology, and accused opponents of being “racially prejudiced”.
The MP for Bosworth, in Leicestershire, who is a Capricorn and in 2010 paid back £755 he had claimed in expenses for software that used astrology to diagnose medical conditions, told Astrological Journal: “I do believe that astrology and complementary medicine would help take the huge pressure off doctors.
“Ninety per cent of pregnant French women use homeopathy. Astrology is a useful diagnostic tool enabling us to see strengths and weaknesses via the birth chart.
“And, yes, I have helped fellow MPs. I do foresee that one day astrology will have a role to play in healthcare.”
