The Thinking Behind Those "Ancient Teachings" Are Still Working Just Like In The Old Days

"If you don't know any chemistry, the basic assumption of homeopathy--that water can have a molecular memory--could make sense. Throw in enough big, sciencey-sounding words, and it almost resembles science. Except that it's utterly ridiculous. Or the snake oil cures that claim to prevent/cure AIDS by 'boosting the immune system.' If you're infected you want to boost the immune system, right? Unless, of course, it's your immune system that's infected (as is the case with HIV/AIDS)."

-- Mike, diluting homeopathy and other NewAge health ideas, by throwing a bit of water on 'em, as Mike The Mad Biologist.
