To leap from this complaint of the uncertain utility of TCM to the conviction that it must then be useless is, according to physicist Carlo Rovelli, the failure to grasp the utility of uncertainty, bringing about the "origin of much silliness in our society". Is science-based medicine the iron-clad practice that it is made out to be? Albert Einstein was humble enough to proffer that "if we knew what it was we were doing, it would not be called research".
While experts revel in their scientifically proven practices, people should acknowledge that they do not know everything.
Thus, to denigrate TCM just because it had its roots in primitive and herbal cures is to commit the fallacy of argumentum ad ignorantiam, or arguing from ignorance, that something is false simply because it has not been proven true.
