Winterson/Goldacre Head-to-Head in the Daily Mail

The Daily Mail have re-printed the Guardian’s homeopathic spat between Jeanette Winterson and Ben Goldacre. Both articles (trimmed down) are now head-to-head.

But not all is at it seams. I have done some photo analysis on the pictures on that page and uncovered a disturbing truth. Look at the picture below. After some photo manipulation I have been able to reveal this…

Look at the picture close up. Who do you see? Now get out of your chair and look again from ten feet away.

Proof that this is a Big Pharma stitch up by getting novelist to defend homeopathy and make it look silly. Or was Goldacre behind the whole thing? Is Jeanette Winterson for real? Who can we trust?

  1. I looked from 10-feet away. No Goldacre, no Winterson – just some old Vermeer painting. I was never any good at magic-eye pictures either.

  2. This is not related to magic eye vergence & accommodation match ups.
