Re: Homeopathy is Witchcraft
Science is about testing. Quoting the early use of Radium as a therapeutic measure is not a valid comment, since it was never tested scientifically for its health effects, at that time. Instead a bunch of idiotic enthusiasts marketed it vigorously without evidence.
A better example might be thalidomide, which was approved after testing. Sadly, the one test they did not perform on thalidomide was its teratogenicity. We know better today, and many teratogenicity tests are performed on all modern drugs.
There are also the occasional cases of fraud and cheating in science, such as Wakefield and the MMR vaccine. This does not apply to homeopathy testing, since we are looking at the combined results of hundreds of separate trials.
Homeopathy has been tested to within an inch of its life and is bogus. Even the theory of homeopathy is bogus. There is no way in science, or even in common sense, that it can work.
