Lets say we have a child who has an infection, we give him some fluids and Tylenol for the pain and fever but the kid gets worse. We take him/her to the hospital they give him some Penicillin but it does not work. They switch to Minocycline but that does not work either. Finally the doctor says: 'probably it is MRSA, we should start Vancomycine stat'. You say 'two courses of antibiotic have failed, this proves antibiotics are just a conspiracy to make big pharma rich, I am taking my child to a homeopathic healing center.
Good analogy.
