It does not mean anything: We can very well compare and check the efficiency of a car and an electric car with the same criteria (speed, performance, pollution, autonomy, noise, etc ...). Or compare the performance, the power of a heat engine and electric.
I suspected that by writing this above, that holding out the pole there would be someone to grab it and it did not fail!
Now READ CAREFULLY what is emphasized
you had to see him: no?
So I did not compare the efficiency as to the result that can be obtained by each technique, but the only criterion that an electrician whose skills are in this subject and a mechanic who has skills in another field and where none of the criteria is applicable to the other
. Clearly an allopath, it's ... an allopath! and a homeopath is ... a homeopath! As it's weird or rather basic, it's called a text analysis!
And as you (or your alter ego) will inevitably say that an electrician can have knowledge in mechanics and actually make a product reconciling the two skills.
Well yes! This is indeed the case for H physicians who first studied allopathy, plus additional studies in homeopathy and can reconcile the two disciplines. But this is not the case for graduates only of allopathy
but who want to pretend they know what they have not studied. So they do not know anything about it, they are incompetent
! You finally perceive the nuance! (Finally, I hope!)
But it's classic like speech: "When the measured temperature is not good, it is necessarily the fault of the thermometer, etc etc etc .... and this big global conspiracy of big-pharma etc etc etc etc .... "
What is classic is that the more someone ignores a subject and the more he wants to make him believe he knows him. " Vanity of vanities
But your sentence can also be phrased in this way with a little modification. When the temperature can not be measured because of a thermometer, it is necessarily the fault of the temperature
And another construction of the same kind that does not mean anything intelligent.
Finally, for the big global conspiracy of big pharma, it's the same cask as talking about oil companies' plot, nuclear plot or any other supposed plot. It's not a matter of conspiracy, but business, big money, dollars, euros, money, flouze, picaillons, pèze, etc ... blackmail employment, Ahmed speaks better than me. And so when a company has to defend its business, it acts according to its immediate interests (more than 1.000 billion), more than those of its customers. If tomorrow the H could have collected as much money as the A, all the industries would start there and forget, as if by chance, their diatribes on the H because of this new Eldorado that would present itself.
This is likely to happen in the long term, given the (relative) speed at which it is currently spreading and there is money to be made, which India has understood. It should remind some people of this "prophecy" of Alain Peyrefitte "when China wakes up ... the world will tremble
"and she was awake awake and the world shook and we bites our fingers for not having anticipated.
