"People's beliefs about arthritis pain and the weather may tell more about the workings of the mind than of the body," concluded the late Stanford psychologist Amos Tversky in the mid-1990s, after comparing the pain reports of 18 rheumatoid-arthritis patients with local weather conditions for a year and finding no connection.
Clearly, Mr. Tversky did not suffer from arthritis or an old broken bone.

Nothing can officially exist until science says it does...
