My first exposure to homeopathy was about 10 years ago - I met a guy who has a Masters in Biochem from Stanford, had worked as biochemist in industry for over 10 years and left to become a naturopathic/homeopathic doctor and went back to school for 3 years getting certified and licensed in California to practice. He recommended homeopathy to me and claimed that it really works based on his (at that time) over 5 years of clinical practice. He had reams of evidence to back up his claim.
    Well, I did my own research and found that there are indeed other bright, educated people who believe in homeopathy and who are convinced that water has a special memory property under certain conditions. I'm not convinced by their arguments, but I think the level of argumentation on this thread is mostly an amateur circle-jerk.
    When you claim to know something is false, and are confronted with your own lack of evidence for that claim, your have no standing to cry "argument from ignorance." Back up your claim.
    Water doesn't have appreciable "memory" the way they say it does. It doesn't. Is a more in depth answer really necessary?

      Where is it then?

      Or are you saying this friend of yours is just sitting on this ground breaking, paradigm shattering, potential Nobel fucking prize winning research... as opposed to, oh I don't know, publishing it?

        Here's a good litmus test. We'll break someone's leg and cut them in an artery, we'll see which kind of medicine saves the patient.

          ha, nice.

          nice article and vid tideliar. I took a class called science and psuedoscience last year and i wish i would have known about the video so i could have brought it up for class. I'm a senior pre-med so this whole thread has been great but i'm pretty disgusted to find out that the government in the uk actually supports this kind of bs. :BangHead:
