This site gets a regular trickle of mail with compliments about the site, some suggesting suitable targets (I couldn't find all this stuff myself). All these messages are welcome and appreciated, but I don't see any reason to publish them. Of course, if someone insists that I publish their praise, I will be forced to agree. I did, however, promise to publish criticism. Not all of it expresses hatred, but "hate mail" is the generic Internet term for this sort of correspondence.
I have some pages which contain collections of mail on certain topics or from regular correspondents:
I have created a separate page for the stream of comments I received after this site was discovered by some people opposed to vaccination.
The 99 names of ...
Canadian Cancer Research Group
Mr William P O'Neill of the Canadian Cancer Research Group does not like me ...
The Gutless Anonymous Liar
Here's some correspondence from something which is so brave and so sure of what it has to say that it has to post from an anonymiser service to hide its tracks.
Australian Council Against Health Fraud
The Australian Council Against Health Fraud has its own job to do, so the staff there have outsourced the job of handling hate mail. As the ACAHF office is on the campus of Northmead Technology Park, it made sense to give the job to the highly-experienced staff on the Millenium Project desk at Ratbag Castle.
Some people don't just write. They make web sites about me, and you can see these at the Tribute Sites and Awards page.
A couple of matters about this site seem to be confusing people. The first is that the content of this site is opinion. It is my opinion, and if it does not match yours then that is too bad. Some people seem to be very frightened by my opinions, although I cannot understand why this should be so. If they have businesses or beliefs which are threatened by what I say on a web site which attracts a number of visitors each month which is only a minute proportion of the hundreds of millions of Internet users, then perhaps they need to think about how strong those businesses and beliefs are. The second matter is that, because this site is an expression of my opinions, I will publish opposing opinions. From the first day this site appeared it has contained a statement that any criticism may be published here. It is not my problem if people (some claiming extensive and sophisticated research skills) have missed the warning. It was there, and the choice to write was always (and will remain) up to the writer. If you want privacy, don't write.

All swans are white.
So everybody thought until someone went to Western Australia and saw black ones.
Homeopathy is Bolloxs.
That is correct, specially when it is correctly spelled as "bollocks"
Ah! Madeleine Ennis. 2001. Never been replicated, but still cited as evidence of something. It is evidence of error in laboratory practices but that doesn't seem to suit believers in magic.
And What? What does this mean? I've been to Devon. Not all swans are white.
Nobody has thought all swans were white for a very long time. And, unlike people who believe that one suspect experiment done a long time ago throws over all known science, when presented with contrary evidence in the form of black swans all sensible people stopped saying they were all white. Science is like that.
Can you explain the difference to me between Skepticism and Dogma?
The fact that you have to ask the question suggests that it might not be possible to explain the difference in terms that you might understand, so I'll do it by example. Skepticism (and science) is like rejecting the hypothesis that all swans are white when an example of a black swan is detected. Dogma is like refusing to recognise that a single experiment done badly proves nothing and continuing to cite it as if it means something.
How does a man interested in Science differentiate the opinions of those who call themselves Skeptics from Dogmatists?
Quite easily, as it happens.
I appreciate the question mark, because I don't know what "decorator" has to do with anything either.

It occurred to me whilst have come across your "Miillenium" page, that YOU in fact probably have a touch of Asperger's yourself!
Really? Are you a psychiatrist?
Judging from the style(or lack thereof) and content of your site, you possess a brain like a machine ( extreme left-brainedness seems to be a Northern Euro DNA-linked trait), and most probably suffer from a deficit of the 'spirit" molecule.
I will see if I can buy some spirit molecules at the next MindBodySpirit Festival I attend. I assume you don't mean the spirit molecules in that bottle of tequila on my bar shelf.
I suggest you drop some acid/ eat mushrooms/drink ayahuasca, and then rethink your worldview. I am serious.
Sorry. I already did the 1960s and I don't need to do it again.
Best of luck!

You're an idiot - many herbalist use CRA that DONT SELL products.
How can someone be a herbalist and not sell anything? Also, CRA is totally about what you have to take to cure all the illnesses in the world. No products, no cure. Remember, I've read the training manual.
It's not about selling products, its about helping people regain their health. Our health care in america is a joke and so corrupt it isnt even funny! It's all about money and thru natural therapies and products and a way to get to the root, CRA people can regain their health.
So your herbalist doesn't charge any money to treat you? I find that a little hard to believe. Almost as hard as I find it to believe that CRA isn't quackery and theft distilled to almost its purest essence.
I pity you
Save your pity for the people with serious illnesses who fall for the fraud of CRA and don't get better.

I was just curious as to how you would explain to me why this so called 'ridiculous' claim that homeopathy is 'ridiculous' in the first place ?
Because the principles of homeopathy deny everything we know about physics, chemistry, biology, mathematics, logic and common sense.
As a patient who was bed ridden after having a severe case of food poisoning, the a severe case of adult chickenpox , resulting in chronic fatigue syndrome . I was bed ridden for almost a year . After countless visits to drs , I still had no answers . They were completely useless . Only until I seeked out a homeopath did I start to come good and made a full recovery within weeks.
So, two things that people recover from without much medication or treatment and one that has a large psychological component. And you got better. And homeopathy had nothing to do with either the food poisoning or the chicken pox and provided the placebo that is often necessary for people to get off their arses and stop feeling sorry for themselves. By the way, I had adult chicken pox. It felt far worse than a really bad case of the flu. I think I took a week off work, although it might have been two weeks.
The information I just read sounds like it was written by an ignorant , miss informed teenager who clearly likes to write off who are an obvious threat to them.
Homeopathy is no threat to me. The only way it could harm me would be if I were silly enough to use it instead of real medical care.
The only thing I got from that information was that your a complete tosser and have no 'scientific' evidence to back up that homeopathy does not help autism or help breast cancer .....
It's not up to me to prove that homeopathy or any other form of quackery doesn't cure something. It is up to the sellers of the stuff to prove that it does. So far they haven't even come close, not that they have ever really tried. The quacks know the truth and they know that any properly conducted research would reveal homeopathy for the ridiculous nonsense that it is.
Thankyou for reading you wanker .

Peter, Interesting but certainly not a universal conclusion.
The doctors gave up on me and I began to follow Wallach's advise and began taking his products and I went from deaths door to losing 80 pounds and walking 2 miles a day.
My wife's bones are regenerating after two failed operations and her pain is finally going away after doctors told her she would be in a wheel chair.
My staff a KCAA Radio is sold on the products and they take them religiously. I have over 1000 customers who buy these products each month.
Wallach is almost 75 years old and when I saw him last, he looked like a man in his early 60s and he works 14 hour days.

Subject: Re Cavitat
I am astonished at the last article on Cavitat Machines. It shows how much ignorance you have on jawbone work and dental expertise!!
I don't claim to be a dentist, but I can smell fraud, especially when it's as noisome as this one.
Cavitat machines reveal pockets of infection in the jawbone and other teeth root areas.
So do x-rays, as used by dentists who don't commit fraud. I had just such an x-ray a couple of weeks ago so that the dentist could treat an infection around the roots of a tooth.
If you do your research and have heard that a 5,000 year old science associating teeth meridians with every organ in the body, you would realize how much this infection in the jawbone area causes illness and affects organs in other parts of the body.
Teeth meridians? That's a form of nonsense that I haven't come across before. Thank you for letting me know about it, and I look forward to being amused when I read more about it.
When the infection is GONE in the bones, the illnesses clear up.
Yes, medicine is like that. That's why infection is treated.
I KNOW as I have been there. I also know of many others who have done this process and gotten well, so before you go BLASTTING off negative things about Cavitat, I would suggest you investigate alot more thoroughly........
I see you observe the Internet tradition by using the concatenation "alot". Tradition is good, even if this one doesn't go back 5,000 years.
LL, A Health Journalist and Writer
I hope that your health journalism isn't published in any place where people might go to find reliable medical advice. If they follow your advice they could end up having all their teeth taken out and their health insurance claim rejected.

Didnít agree with your view on Royal Rife, deriding him, and I guess as you would many others who wish to practice Homeopathic medicine instead of the Allopathic poisoning we are asked to accept as "standard practice"
The nonsense attributed to Rife had absolutely nothing to do with homeopathy, and according to the person who invented the word Rife was an allopath.
Wait until you see those you love die at the hands of so called medical experts who place poison into your veins and watch it slowly kill them. Barbaric and useless despite the trillions spent on "the cure for cancer", what a joke.
Are you seriously suggesting that doctors don't care about the outcomes of the treatments they provide?
Of course this is still "current" best practice and we are told to shut up get treated and then die. All the while oncologists still get paid whether you live or die , the Health juggernaut keeps on going.
Do you think that oncologists should only be paid if their patients live? For how long after treatment? One week? One month? One year? Five years? Fifty years? Forever? Are you going to apply the same rule to the charlatans who offer alternative "cures", or is it acceptable for them to charge large amounts of money up front?
Yes we have come a long way in the field of medical trauma , but we are still in the dark ages with our treatment of diabetes, arthritis and cancers, most caused by what we eat and what we breathe in , but I wont mention Monsanto or roundup etc etc.
I'm glad you didn't mention Monsanto or Roundup because they have nothing to do with the causes or treatment of disease. I'm rather surprised to hear that people in the dark ages had access to insulin, metformin, paracetamol, codeine and tamoxifen but I like learning new things.
I am not some raving purist , having worked in the health industry in major teaching hospitals for over 35yrs, HEALTH is a business , the "do no harm" has gone out the window, and has been replaced with "ensure we profit"
Whereas suppliers of "natural" or "alternative" medicines either give their products and services away or operate only at break-even? According to the latest financial reports from Blackmores (Australia's best-known purveyor of snake oil), in the six months to the end of December 2014 there was a profit of $18,615,000 made on sales of $206,361,000. That's a profit rate of just over 9%, a figure that would make most companies very happy indeed.
Get the feeling that I am sick of apologists for those who think because they have a Medical Degree that this somehow infers the title of God upon them ?
Be assured many are waking up to the deception.
Unfortunately not enough people are waking up to the deception of so-called "alternative medicine", which is more correctly called "alternative to medicine".
Try telling your doctor that your not going to take your cholesterol lowering drugs ( another scam), anyway I could, as you probably can go on and on.
Your doctor can't force you to take any drug. Make sure that when you tell your doctor that you are not going to take the cholesterol lowering drugs that you also provide him with a notarised statement that makes it quite clear that he must refuse to treat you if you suffer a stroke, a heart attack or kidney failure. It would be hypocritical of you to accept any intervention but you need to cover the doctor in case someone accuses him of acting unethically.
Please open your eyes and see that the emperor really doesnít have any clothes on.
Most great discoveries came as a result of those who searched and researched differently , otherwise doctors still wouldnít be washing their hands between patients.
Why should hand washing make any difference if germs don't cause disease? Remember that the big three alternatives to medicine, homeopathy, chiropractic and acupuncture, all operate on the basis that the "germ theory" of disease is incorrect.
But you are entitled to your opinions, but if we donít search everywhere for cures we are doing mankind a great disservice.
I know several people who spend every hour of their working lives searching everywhere for cures.

yes, you really are an idiot. personal abuse is your only way of debating an issue. quit while you are down.
Thank you for your incisive comment. I have taken it on board and will try to be a better person in future.
By the way, it isn't a good look to say "personal abuse is your only way of debating an issue" just after you have called someone an idiot. Also punctuation is important if you want to communicate your ideas well.
