'Homeopathy works!!!111!!'

I have had the personal experience of using homeopathy for a major part of my life.

I have been cured of many major ailments through homeopathy. I have seen it work...both in my case and in the cases of many of my friends and family.
I have seen it work in cases where there was absolutely no hope and the traditional doctors had given up.

I will not want to join issue with you and debate this on your forum..

However..Let me make a few observations...

~ We don't understand the world and its workings completely. About a century ago.. we had one kind of idea about the world and we thought we understood it .... Now, a century later we have a slightly different understanding.... This will continue into the forseeable future... The bottom line is ...neither science..medical or otherwise can explain..."how life came about"...or broadly .."what is the cause of our existence"... Until we can do that our knowledge of the world and its workings are not accurate...

~ Simply because we do not understand ..how something works... doesn't mean that we refuse its existence.... I remember the time when my mind was in a cloud regarding 'homeopathy' and I shared the same beliefs that you have put down in this article... I have since then, paid a heavy price for my obdurance.. Humility, is a wonderful thing ... Not everyone is endowed with it...

~ If you want to to really test homeopathy...then check it for its efficacy...with an open attitude...Not with an obdurate one... Homeopathy may not be able to explain itself...Not yet anyway... But that does mean it doesnt work...or the law governing homeopathy doesnt exist.... This is similar to denying the existence of "Electricity" in pre-historic times...By citing that since it was not yet discovered ...It doesnt exist ..or the laws governing electricity don't exist..
Homeopathy sure does work....I am a living witness...


These people make me laugh and get on my nerves in near equal amounts.

There is no point in my responding, because they won't listen - but I seriously want to smack them upside the head with Horizon's program, the one where they got together with James Randi and some real scientists and proved Homeopathy DOESN'T FUCKING WORK.

Maybe I'll just link them to the youtube copy.

Hmm I have a problem with this, let me explain. You see George Vithoulkas (top international homeopath - honorary degrees from top universities around the world) took up James Randi's (failed magician) million pound offer to prove homeopathy works. They had the hospital in Greece ready, the trial protocol all set up, notes laid down, papers all signed and then...

Randi (failed magician) pulls the plug. He's not feeling well. George never did hear back from him.

Hope this helps pretty lady ;-)

My dear Anthony,

First, let me say that I absolutely love being called 'pretty lady' by complete strangers. It gives me this warm, bubbly feeling inside.

Second, get your facts straight.

A. The prize money is actually 1 million DOLLARS ($1,000,000) - as anyone who has read up on the JREF offer would know.

B. Randi has not 'pulled the plug' - the challenge has had to start over, for a number of reasons.

C. Randi is awaiting submission of the properly-filled-out application form that ALL runners for the prize must fill out. Once he has recieved this, the challenge will go ahead.

D. Calling Randi a 'failed magician' does nothing other than make me laugh at you.

E. As does calling Vithoulkas a 'top international homeopath'.

F. This is Vithoulkas' second attempt at claiming the prize.

For official information, from the JREF, go here: http://www.randi.org/site/index.php/swift-blog/235-george-vithoulkas-homeopathy-challenge-starting-anew.html

I simply must tell you, by the way, that James Randi regulalrly overdoses on homeopathic remedies.

Specifically, he overdoses on 'homeopathic sleeping pills', just before or during his regular lectures - he completes every one of them without feeling in the slightest bit drowsy. And this is all live on stage, in front of hundreds - regularly.

Hope this helps ^^
