I direct you to Corinthians 10:20, where Paul says:
>No, but the sacrifices of pagans are offered to demons, not to God, and I do not want you to be participants with demons.
>You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons too; you cannot have a part in both the Lord’s table and the table of demons.

But we have some knowledge of how the placebo effect works: in times of severe stress the body goes into fight or flight mode, devoting less material and energetic resources to self-repair.

: A hurricane struck just west of New Orleans. At 5 PM on the 19th, winds began out of the northeast in New Orleans. Winds increased to a "perfect hurricane" at 11 PM. Winds abated after 2:30 PM the next day. Nearly all buildings suffered. All window panes in City Hall were broken. Fifteen feet of water covered the city. Extensive damage to buildings, trees, and 53 boats was seen. The levee was destroyed, which allowed the storm surge to submerge areas south of the city. Plaquemines Parish went under as much as 15 feet of Gulf water. Sugar crops suffered severely. Nearly 100 people died during the storm. Losses totaled $6 million. Some public panic set in when after the storm rumors spread that the British had taken over Fort St. Phillip; this storm struck during the thick of the War of 1812 and the fort was controlled by the Americans at the time. In fact, the British fleet approaching the area was scattered widely across the Gulf during the storm. Fort St. Phillip itself went underwater.

The Dominican Republic was not unaffected by AIDS/HIV. The United Nations Joint Programme on HIV/AIDS estimates that 66,000 Dominicans are HIV-positive. The adult prevalence of HIV in the Dominican Republic is 1.1 percent. The Dominican Republic was also affected by the Swine River Virus which had spread in the 1970’s from Europe to the Dominican Republic and then into Haiti via the Artibonite River which straddles the two countries. (In the early 1980’s the native Creole pig was eradicated by humans due to fears of an epidemic.)

Seriously? A Wiccan? I thought you had more sense than that.
