Fun times:  According to Patheos -- the Center for Inquiry (CFI) is suing CVS for fraud.  This is in regards to CVS selling Homeopathic products, as though they were real medications.

 

Let the good times roll!  Today, Homeopathy.  Who know which bit of quackery will be next?  We do live in interesting times.

That's the point.  Homeopathy doesn't work on anything.  Now we have the CFI dragging CVS to Court on charges of FRAUD.  Change is in the air.  This is historic.

I've noticed a few You Tube videos where people have rescued a homeless dog or cat and then taken it to an animal shelter where the staff treat it with aroma therapy, pin cushion therapy (I forget what its really called) and homoeopathy. I feel like punching the screen whenever I see such nonsense. I feel so sorry for the poor animals.


Believe nothing you hear and only half what you see.

Nobody has ever reacted to the active ingredients in a homeopathic preparation because there are no active ingredients.

Also, water does not have a memory, only a liar or a fool would say it does.

I expect we have all seen a video, where James Randi swallows the sleeping pills.  Homeopathic, of course.

 

I think this is a form of religious fervor.  It's in the nature of disregarding external reality.  It's about belief in the properties of water.  It's like any other religious gnosis.  It's religion about water.  Otherwise, they might as well be about God.

I watched him do it live at TAM. I think he took two whole bottles all at once. He did not seem very sleepy to me.

Neither did he need to call poison control.  That is some expensive water.
