    Very true daedalus. I think that psycotherapy is highly underrated. Granted it is still based on a science relatively in its infancy, and I’m sure there are many things it doesn’t quite get right – but there are legitimate and science based interventions it employs. And unlike CAM, it changes and adapts based on the evidence.

    What is the difference between believing in god and believing in CAM modalities? Why respect the first and deride the second?

    It seems totally normal that if Collins is a fundamentalist (evangelical), then he believes literally in the healing miracles attributed to Jesus. If so, then how hard is it for him to believe in any other magical healing?
