Recently, groups of Canadian skeptics joined like-minded people the world over to raise public awareness about homeopathic remedies, and the real facts behind homeopathy. They did this by publicly “overdosing” on homeopathic remedies to demonstrate their awesome and powerful effects: and nothing happened.
If homeopathy was applied to cars, it would look like this: If I put a very small drop (say 1 mL) of exhaust pipe gas condensation into 100 mL of water (about a half a coffee cup), mixed it up and put 1 mL of that solution into another 100 mL of water, mixed it up and repeated that process four more times, I would have some mighty fine homeopathic gasoline to sell you. It would be pretty much all water, and only one part “active ingredient” per million-billion, but you should believe my claims that it would run the engine of your car because, in addition to diluting it beyond recognition, I would have also shaken the hell out of it. And maybe hit it against a leather pad too. This would have caused the water to remember the tail pipe gas properties, so it’s all good.
Seriously. This is what homoeopathy contends. I wish I could tell you I was joking.
