While we’re on the topic of painful ignorance, I note that some folks have managed to make a cottage industry out of professionalised stupidity and purveying complete and utter nonsense as medical advice.
* dowsing classes and tools
* energy assessments of home and work
* theta healing
* talks for groups
* handmade jewellery
Yes, Ms McLean wants to take your money for teaching you ‘dowsing‘ and for jewellery made with chunks of glass which are apparently supposed to heal your ‘thetas.’ I frankly wasn’t aware I had any thetas. Readers, please turn me on to the anatomy lessons I have quite clearly missed…
The selfsame Ms McLean is offering up herself as an expert on the supposed hazards of electromagnetic signals. McLean can’t grasp the fact that her ‘complimentary medicine’ is complete silliness, so she’s branched out into offering technical information on the supposed health damage from radio signals- and is making a buck off it, to boot. I’d like to see McLean’s medical and electronics engineering qualifications. I’ll put my BSEE up against her wives’ tales and conspiracy theories any day of the week.
If McLean’s information on the health effects of radio transmissions is anywhere near as good as her other wives’ tales, I’d sooner take medical advice from Tom Cruise.
Ms McLean is completely within her rights to privately believe any absurd nonsense she likes. If she feels all good and gooey inside when she hangs bits of glass off assorted parts of her person, more power to her.
Where she gets my back up is when she offers bullshit up to community groups as valid and viable factual objections to provision of adequate mobile telephone services in the Blue Mountains, an area where the lack of effective communications can be lethal to the general public. Ms McLean’s crazy guesses and crystal-gazing suppositions should not, under any circumstances, be allowed to compromise public safety.
Dowsing! Kid you not.
