Well, Michael, it is interesting that you placed this discussion entry at the head of the list even though it was written September 05, thereby bypassing all the entries that preceeded it.
I was initially quite pleased to see homeopathy listed on this site devoted to scientific anomalies, as homeopathy is an entire system based on an anomaly. Unfortunately as I have said repeatedly elsewhere on this site, this site is flawed as you haven’t established homeopathy as a genuine anomaly, but continue to try to explain it away with a very primitive kind of scientific logic. An anomaly by definition is a genuine phenomenon which cannot be explained away.
Naturally most will weigh in against homeopathy. That is the conventional scientific wisdom: “it can’t work therefore it doesn’t work.” Hurling their dismissive missiles, they remain safe and secure behind the walls of their consensus reality. The overwhelming majority will readily agree with them, and they can all pat themselves on the back for upholding “scientific principles.” Meanwhile homeopathy continues to grow decade after decade, taking market share from conventional medicine. No doubt this is due to the ignorance and gullibility of ordinary people, who need us to tell them what is real and what is not. Of course these ordinary people have a slight advantage over most of those on this site as they have actually tried homeopathy and so have some real experience on which to base their opinions.
