But hey, homeopathy must be one of the most profitable businesses out there, selling water with a memory and make people believe of its healing features. :ponder:


Not up to anything here. Other day I had discussion with someone and the person was right out.. no i can't be.. He is a scientist btw. That made me think that if today's scientists are as close minded as in the past, we are not really making any progress for educating people.

No offense but you seem not to have the slightest idea how science works. You are not talking about scientists being open to hypotheticals that could explain phenomenon in a way consistent with what we know about the universe, but being open to complete and utter fantasies that are inconsistent with what we know.

Is there something that doesn't make sense in our world that "water memory" explains or provides a conceptual framework for understanding?
“Everywhere else in the world is also really old” said Prof. Liu, a renowned historian at Beijing University. “We always learn that China has 5000 years of cultural heritage, and that therefore we are very special. It appears that other places also have some of this heritage stuff. And are also old. Like, really old.”

Well, there are plenty of things which doesn't make sense in our world. As far as water-memory theory goes, homeopathy does help some.

Isha, are you one of those sharks who sell crystals, magnets, "structured water" and all that other horseshit to gullible customers or are you one of the gullible customers?

There is no evidence whatsoever that homeopathy has benefits beyond what you would expect from the placebo effect. So, no need to explain an effect that doesn't exist.

My sister worked with Edzard Ernst until he was kicked out of Exeter Uni in disgrace; the guy was a bit of a wanker, apparently, but she had access to a great deal of research on alternative therapies in general. There do seem to be a lot of very promising or proven effective non-pharma remedies, but homeopathy most certainly is not one of them.

No, certainly not. I myself do not believe things which I do not experience or can realize. But, I do have an open mind to not discard any theory before I can most certainly say that it's a bull. Water-memory is the same for me. At some level, I know there is something which we could not explain yet. Like for many it doesn't make sense, for me it does.

When you get an e-mail message from eBay or your bank, claiming that you have an account problem or a question from a buyer, it's probably a "phishing scam" intended to trick you into typing your password. Don't click the link in the message. If in doubt, go into your browser and type "www.ebay.com" (or whatever) manually.
