The formula for calculating the Top Rated 250 Titles gives a true Bayesian estimate:
weighted rank (WR) = (v ÷ (v+m)) × R + (m ÷ (v+m)) × C

where:
R = average for the movie (mean) = (Rating)
v = number of votes for the movie = (votes)
m = minimum votes required to be listed in the Top 250 (currently 1250)
C = the mean vote across the whole report (currently 6.8)
for the Top 250, only votes from regular voters are considered.

Alternative Medicine

Acupuncture - small needles are inserted through the skin into special points. This affects the rate of energy, called Qi. Many wouldn’t want this done to them but it doesn’t actually hurt if you relax, and is effective in easing pain. But Acupressure is another form of this, using fingers instead of needles.

Osteopathy is a system of medicine based on the theory that many diseases are caused by misalignments of bones, ligaments, and muscles, and that correcting these through manipulation can cure the problems.

Hypnotherapy is the use of hypnosis in treating illness, for example in dealing with physical pain or psychological problems.

Chinese medicine is based around the ideas that everything has two opposite aspects – Yin and Yang, and that both exist together, and both are necessary for the body to be in balance. This is similar to Hippocratic teachings from over 2,000 years ago.

Herbal remedies are the usage of natural herbs, taken as raw herb, infusion or pills, to help with disease. Examples include Valerian and chamomile to help with sleep; pepper and elder flower to cure colds; and chickweed, which helps prevent itchy skin conditions. These have fewer side effects than traditional medicine, and can be used at home.

Homeopathy is the usage of parts of animals, rocks and natural drugs that in larger doses would produce symptoms of the disease itself.. They are used on anything, from a cough to cancer. Oddly, the more diluted they are, the stronger the medicine becomes, and because of this some people say it’s impossible for it to work. Homeopathy never has any side effects, even if the wrong medicine is taken, and is used for the Royal Family.

Chiropractice is based on theory that disease is from disruption of the nerves. The method of treating this is usually by adjustment of the displaced vertebrae. Chiropractic is a unique form of health care which stresses an overall body wellness. The focus of chiropractic is to locate and help correct spinal problems that are disrupting the controlling nerve impulses between the brain and every cell, tissue, organ, and system of your body. Because the adjustments help restore the function of the nervous system, they can have a profound effect to your overall health without drugs or surgery.

Faith healing is a spiritual form of treating disease and used in the faith that God heals through the power of the Holy Spirit. Although many feel satisfied through this painless form of healing, many feel that it is a quack cure.

Aromatherapy is use of volatile plant oils, including essential oils, for psychological and physical well-being. The healing power of essential oils is the main attraction in aromatherapy. It is also the main question for the skeptic.

And why is it so popular?
- Being backed by famous and rich individuals, such as the Royal Family endorsing homeopathy.
- Lack of side effects. Chemotherapy, used to treat cancer, can lead to loss of hair, but herbal remedies and homeopathy have none.
- They do not want to take the health regulations set to them by their doctors, feel there are too many dangers in using some modern technology which many would like to avoid, or because they don’t trust doctors.
- Many people would much rather place their faith and money into alternative medicine, or even God. This shows that, since the Prehistoric times and supernatural beliefs in medicine, some ideas have still survived.

Christian creation
For Christianity, the stories of the Creation are found in the first two chapters of the book of Genesis in the Bible. They show how God created the world in six days and rested on the seventh.
This account says that God created the world ex nihilo (from nothing):
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
Genesis 1:1
After creating the earth, the sky, the seas and plants, God made birds and fish on the fifth day and animals and humans on the sixth day.
So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.
Genesis 1:27
Some Christians take this account very literally and believe that this is exactly how the world was created. In the 17th century, Bishop James Ussher calculated from the Bible that God began creating the world at 9am on October 26, 4004BCE.
As early as the fourth century St Augustine was writing that God probably only created very simple life forms in the beginning and that these developed over time.
There are two different scientific theories about this:
· Cosmology This science deals with the way in which the universe came into being. Unlike the creation story from Genesis, cosmology seeks an evidence-based explanation for the way the universe came into existence. Most cosmologists agree that the universe began in a 'Big Bang' about 14 billion years ago, and that all the stars and planets, including the earth, were formed during the subsequent expansion of the universe, which is continuing today.
· Evolution This science argues, rather like Augustine, that the higher and more advanced forms of life, like human beings, have slowly developed or evolved from the original simpler life forms which originally appeared on the earth. Evolutionary science first really came to public attention in 1859 when Charles Darwin wrote On the Origin of Species. He argued that life began with very simple cells and later developed into what we see today. Darwin's findings upset many religious people, and one Christian scientist, Philip Gosse, even argued that the fossils discovered in the ground had been placed there by God to test the faith of Christians by making evolution appear to have happened.
Today many Christians accept the theories of cosmology and evolution and do not take the Biblical account of the Creation literally. They believe that the Bible is there to explain why God created the world, and the relationship between God and nature, rather than a scientific account of how the world was created.
