Scientists conclude homeopathy doesn't work

Scientists conclude homeopathy doesn't work
Quote:Perhaps you remember when scientists debunked homeopathy in 2002. Or 2010. Or 2014. But now a major Australian study analyzing over 1,800 papers has shown that homeopathy, the alternative treatment that relies on super-diluted substances and the principle of “like cures like” is completely ineffective.

Neither does this.

Being told you're delusional does not necessarily mean you're mental.

I imagine it is better than prayer, though.

Prayer does absolutely nothing, not always true of holistic treatment.

They both work on placebo effect.

Goodness gracious what next?

I thought James Randi had dealt with homeopathy, outing it as dangerous crackpottery.

Strange way to waste time. Another study will not convince homeopathy nuts.
The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.

But if we are lucky, they will eliminate themselves from the gene pool.

Oh, no Hallucinations 4:11 says the 'gilded sheep should be stewed in rat blood' but Morons 5:16 contradicts it.

As an Aussie, I'm somewhat concerned that the federally-funded National Health and Medical Research Council
has spent so much time and money again  "testing" a pseudo-science that was debunked decades ago, when
it should be involved in the far more critical development and maintenance of Australian health standards.

The NHMRC has been allocated $3.5 billion over the next four years for research purposes.  I can only hope
they'll spend this money a little more wisely than on yet another  report on homeopathy.  

Anybody with even a semi-functioning brain already knows it doesn't work.
I'm a creationist;   I believe that man created God.
