The second part of Richard Dawkins' Enemies of Reason is on tonight. 'Alternative' medicine is due a good kicking.

Last Sunday the Observer's resident astrologer, Neil Spencer, attempted a rebuttal-in-advance of Dawkins show. Obviously he realised he was about to be made look a tit. His defense, though, consisted of little more than playing the man instead of the ball and an argument from ignorance.

This week the paper printed some very good letters in response to his article. It also printed a letter from a woman claiming that 'the power of homeopathy is formidable' on the basis that it 'cured' her asthma. She should watch tonight.
