    Now that’s funny. I had a holistic Dr tell me one time about all that homeopathy stuff. She really believes it and I respect her as a person but its just nuts.

    The conclusion I came to was that it is dependant on believing that everything has a soul and its bound to each atom… its weirdness distilled.

    My mom was into this for a while to help her with… I don’t even remember what it was supposed to be doing for her. It’s not even weirdness distilled, it’s weirdness diluted to the point that it isn’t even weirdness anymore.

    I say, let the punishment be inversely proportional to the crime: fine should be $1/(10-30). That’ll teach ’em. Or, we could leave it at $10-30, exact change only, upon punishment of life incarceration.

    Hmmm… superscript looked fine in the preview pane…

  • The New Scientist did a piece on homeopathy a few years ago and came to the conclusion that there was evidence that it worked, but for reasons that cannot be fully explained.
