Helminth worms. Ascaris, hookworm, whipworm. But for auto-immune disorders, you want something that doesn't cause so many symptoms, so people are trying pig worms (Trichuris suis).

Here's an interesting news piece:

How would low tech cultures know they were beneficial? Wouldn't that take a bit of modern scientific expertise and study to figure out?

It's funny to pop in every once in a while at my leisure and see all the atheists that don't have enough faith in their disbelief as atheists.

Nothing pleases me more than seeing the failures and worries of atheists.

Their anger, empty excuses , and outbursts of Christian persecution proves my point.

What is you problem with religious people? What have I done or said to you, that you keep calling me delusional? huh? some atheists are fanatics too, it seems!
ok, kitten and u guys goodnite! it's too late now, i have to get some sleep! sweet dreams guys!!:)
It's concern for the human species and general safety of humanity. When a person who maintains a delusional state congregates with others who support that delusion it eventually turns into violence or progresses into something worse, and then we see the Salem witch hunts all over again. Crowds of delusional people will hide and mask even more dangerous behaviors and exceptionally unstable individuals, preventing us from finding them before it's too late. Do you prefer we wait until murderers kill, then have to put them to death because they are beyond help?

Delusion also opens the door for many other abusive behaviors, such as drug and alcohol abuse. Of course I haven't even gotten to the fact that religion teaches people to be weak, useless, and incapable as a method of it's indoctrination.

Perhaps instead of looking to mythology for false strength and support, you should find where your own personality is lacking, and correct that. Of course what you do with your life is not really the important factor. In the US many people are denied the ability to help themselves because of religious notions, ideas, that are intended to keep them weak. That's the big issue I have with it, and I will not rest until I see those injustices ended, or religion gone from the planet.

I don't drink, smoke or take drugs!! But what are you on???

so are you going to have me killed? you going to be an atheist Hitler and start killing religious people?

You shouldn't have responded to that post if you didn't understand it.

Also, you're looking a lot like Eagle in this one.
