RationalWiki's 2018 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff — we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone seeing this today donates $5, we will meet our goal for 2018.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

Jeremy Sherr (born 1955, South Africa) is a homeopath, self-published author and kook best known for pretending that magic sugar pills homeopathy can cure AIDS.

Sherr studied Homeopathy at the College of Homoeopathy in London in 1980. He also studied Acupuncture at the International College of Oriental Medicine (apparently without noticing that the theories and disease models of homeopathy and acupuncture are mutually exclusive). He founded the "Dynamis School", a "post-graduate homeopathy course" (i.e. diploma mill) in 1987. He began study and research in homeopathic provings in 1982 with a proving of Scorpion, apparently. It's unclear how this was done since the traditional Hahnemann method of proving involves giving people a dose strong enough to cause tangible symptoms. With scorpion? Good luck with that.

He's been compared with AIDS denialist quack Matthias Rath[1]. Need we say more.
