Ugandan Reflexologists vs. their Government

The Ugandan government has forced the closure of all reflexology centres in that country, provoking a fierce reaction from the woo-woo brigade. The government’s reasoning is that practitioners lack training and fall short of operational standards, while reflexologists argue that not all of their kind are guilty of this. That is, both sides seem to agree that reflexology actually works when done right. Faulty reasoning pervades both sides of this farce, like banning witchcraft because there’s a shortage of black cats. It’s a veritable sceptic’s dilemma — one that will leave all sceptics in a quandary over which side to support, given that it’s a laudable decision based on wholly ignorant reasoning.

Indeed, it exemplifies just how urgent is the need for well-informed critical thinking.

This is a country that banned being gay by punishment of Execution.

After I read your headline I was thinking "No way, that sounds impossible".

All we need is properly trained witches, then all is well.

Yeah, the Ugandan government’s stance on homosexuality is another symptom of its remarkable ignorance.

But I think the reflexologists really mean to kick up a fuss over this footling issue of having their practices stepped on. They obviously think their government’s a heel and the sole obstacle standing in their way, so they won’t soft-pedal their dissent. Maybe their hotfooting it to court will keep the government on its toes if not in step…
