    Thanks for linking this one. I saw this on Reddit earlier, but I didn't want to click the link at work. I'd already forgotten to go back and read it.

    I've always thought of myself as living proof of this.

    "Today a young man on acid realized that all matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration, that we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively, there is no such thing as death, life is only a dream, and we are the imagination of ourselves. Here's Tom with the Weather."

    Did anyone actually read this article? This is flawed "science", at best. Title says it could be beneficial, but offers zero evidence. Then it says 'Yes, it does have some bad effects, but they rarely cause serious damage', followed by, 'there's not enough evidence, in our opinion, to support claims of long-term effects."

    So the lesson here is:
    -Make claim supported by one sentence of unclear evidence/explanation. (LSD is good for you, supported by "In an earlier study, published last year, the two neuroscientists demonstrated that a single dose of LSD was an effective treatment for alcoholism.")

    -Say claims of bad results of drugs are "exaggerated" (effectively admitting there are bad, long term results, but not as many as others thought before)

    -Disregard evidence countering claim because there's not enough. (even though it's more than what you're presenting)





    Maybe LSD does have medical benefits. This article just does a ****ty job of arguing its title.

    Shouldn't a thread on science include rational thought and critical thinking?


    ... as I typed that sentence, I remembered where I was posting. Never mind. Carry on.
