Just 'cause this is a Discordian board doesn't mean we eat up dada bullshit

Not that we know everything. Far from it; we are only starting to gain glimpses into that which we do not know. But there is simply no empiric support for homeopathy. I have slightly more respect for faith healing.
Thank you for meaning well. (<-- just to be clear, that is a completely sincere sentence)
I don't wish to go into it again. I have taken chemistry, I have reviewed the matter quite excessively, and I have been thoroughly convinced that discussing it on PD is a BAD IDEA. So I'm just not doing it.
If that's something you people won't get over, that's just my tough luck.
Yeah, I find it hard to even imagine what kind of incredibly abbreviated liberal-arts version of chemistry you could possibly have taken that would permit you to still believe in the fairies of homeopathy, but go for it, champ.
Look, as you have yourself said, our science is not complete.
I am agnostic about homeopathy (I wouldn't have said this three years ago, I do now).
I am quite certain that the sceptical campaign against homeopathy and many of the so-called studies are unfair, unsuitable for deciding the question, and morally reprehensible in exactly the way Dawkins and his merry band of militant atheists are.
I can imagine homeopathy being merely a particularly effective ritual for turning on the placebo effect. That is interesting in its own right.
I can also imagine homeopathy having an underlying mechanism that we don't know at present. The research into higher-level structures in water seems vaguely promising, but really, I just don't know. I do know that received scientific knowledge can fall. Look at Newtonian mechanics (so elegant, so simple, so beautiful: it must be true!), or, more recently, genetic determinism (one of the most exciting developments I can think of in the life sciences).
I sorry my friend, I not try rub it in.
Can wiggle in seat and wave arms like loon to good music?
Dance not require feet, wiggle dance fun too!

If your schtick is sentient program, you should talk like a robot, or HAL 9000, not a Salazorian tuna boat captain.
