I wouldn't say it's bollocks, I think there's something in it whatever that is, but if I had a medical problem I'd stick with conventional medicine. If that didn't work I'd supplement or consider alternative treatments.
I've known a few homeopaths who aren't even remotely passionate about scamming people, they're good people who genuinely believe it. That doesn't make them or it right, of course.
And bonus, you believe in God so any standard you're setting for what you consider one of the biggest cons known to man is not a very good one. I think the illusion of free will and choice, religion, charity and the Foo Fighters being accepted as a credible and good band are a bigger problem.
When I said there is nothing in it, I meant that there is actually, physically nothing in it. Not one single molecule of active ingredient. If it's in pill form it is sugar, in it's usual form it is pure water. If their theory that water has memory was actually true, then there would be far more piss and shit in their remedies than whatever active ingredient they are claiming.
It is pure lies and those that believe it, including practitioners, are deluded. I'm afraid that this is one of those things that there aren't two ways about it. Did you read my post that mentions how it was invented? How could anything based on that actually be true?
Yeah, I read it. Wasn't particularly useful. I don't care either way, it's probably bollocks, it doesn't sound good or useful to me, but I don't really know. I wouldn't choose it if I needed treatment. I don't think homeopathy is a killer worth getting as passionate about as you are. It's only due to the proliferation of blogs and 'thinkers' talking about it that has made it so popular and allowed the average Joe to harbour an opinion that sounds impressive in it's certainty.
I don't care whether it's bollocks or not, but I am intrigued as to why everyone is so opinionated on it.
