At one point during the "Infinite Monkeys Unleashed" show, Cox was responding to a question from the audience and started talking about treating viruses with antibiotics. Goldacre politely stopped him and pointed out that antibiotics don't work with viruses, which got a good laugh from the audience. Cox looked sheepish for a few seconds and then said to the whole audience "Please don't tweet that."
I love the fact that Goldacre has a "PhD" for his dead cat on his toilet wall, purchased from the same "university" that "Doctor" McKeith bought hers from. It's good that we have people like Goldacre to expose charlatans like McKeith. But people still believe what makes them feel comfortable anyway. Humans have an amazing capacity for belief. They'll believe pretty much anything if it suits them. C'est la vie.
Just watched episode 3 of WoL- very good documentary, although there was less new material for me personally in there than there was in the second one. Nice to see him acknowledging the profound nature of biological understanding at the end and putting it on the same level as his own discipline in terms of universal principles.
