Consistent with the scientific method, I did not conclude that your son was a placebo case. I suggested that possibility and the need for more evidence. Failing to attribute something to the support of a theory is not a rejection of the theory per se.
The scientific method is a framework for finding things out. Its purpose is to sort out the truth. As a filter, it will catch garbage, but it doesn't invalidate the method. Theories stand for years before better evidence is found. Then the theory is amended or tossed.
