Reachable, I give you a parable.
Evolution, the theory has been around for 150 years - thousands of attempts have been made to discredit it, and to prove that it is wrong, all have failed. Regardless of what nutjobs (nearly always religious nutjobs) have said, or have claimed, Evolution is a theory (follow the link. Number 1, is the Scientific meaning of the word, something that is simply an "idea" is a theorem, in science that's number 4) that has not been discredited once, not a single fossil has ever been found in the wrong evolutionary time-line, not a single shred of DNA evidence has proven that it is not a fact, but people still try to discredit it.
Some people are f*cking idiots.http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/theoryhttp://dictionary.reference.com/browse/theorem
Homeopathy, thousands of attempts have been made to prove it works better than a placebo, all have failed. Regardless of what nutjobs (always idiots) have said, or have claimed, Homeopathy is no better than a placebo (follow the link) that has not been proven to work better than a placebo once, not a shred of evidence in double-blind tests has ever found it to work better than a placebo, but people still try to claim that it works, and that "science" does not get it.
Some people are f*cking idiots.http://sciencebasedpharmacy.wordpress.c ... thy-works/
If you feel that you can prove that Homeopathy works, go ahead and claim your $1,000,000
Homeopathy has a bad name because its just like the Evolution vs Creationism argument that has gone on for the last 150 years.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Creation%E ... ontroversy
Evolution, as I have already said has beaten Creationism into the ground every time, do you think that Creationism is still true after it has claimed (falsely) that Evolution is not a fact thousands of times and has lost every single time, would you back a the horse in a 2-horse race that has lost a thousand times, or bet on the one that has won a thousand times.?
Did you know that there is actually far more evidence to prove that evolution is true than there is for the theory of Gravity.!!! Most religious nutjobs don't argue about that, because there is nothing in their ancient book of fables and fairy-tales that even mentions gravity, they only go nuts if a bit of science turns up and shows their stupid stories (formed into a religion later on) for what they are - bullshit.
There is no difference at all between Creationism and Homeopathy, it is a pseudo-science, i.e. not a science at all, but it pretends to be to gain a shred of integrity.
Prove that Homeopathy is better than a Placebo and earn $1m. The challenge has been there for over 2-years now - surprised that no-one has claimed the money yet.?
All the general public needs to know is that proper homeopathy has no serious side effects and works on many chronic conditions which are not life-threatening. It can also help with the immune system and stuff.
Step on up and claim your million dollars, prove that it works better than a placebo and you are rich my friend. It has also been proven that having a dog or a cat in a children's cancer ward increases their chances of survival / extends their life, it has been proven that going to sleep listening to certain things helps people sleep, which improves their health and well-being, there are many other examples along these lines and none of them are sold as a lie like Homeopathy is, they all work even though then end user knows why it works, homeopathy doesn't because it IS a placebo and the moment anyone knows that FACT the "magic" of Placebo's vanishes.
HFat go get a million dollars
if you can.
All the general public needs to know is that proper homeopathy has no serious side effectshttp://www.1023.org.uk/the-1023-overdose-event.php
Side effects only exist if there is something in there that actually does something, it is impossible to overdose on Homeopathy because it does nothing at all, therefore there are no side effects.
Some doctors and psychiatrists sometimes prescribe dangerous and addictive drugs which are not recommended for a particular case rather than offering no solution. I've personally been prescribed deadly drugs for poorly diagnosed minor symptoms. Some doctors will admit to it (or at least admit that their colleagues are doing it).
I cant say that this is a good solution at all, if the drugs don't works, try more drugs might (and does) work in some scenarios, but very often just quitting the drugs totally also works, other-times alternative medicine works very well, e.g. psychotherapy, a change of lifestyle or getting a f*ck-buddy, dozens of things can work, but how many are bare-faced lies.?
In such cases, homeopathy would be a more rational prescription, don't you think?
No. Not at all, Homeopathy is NO BETTER THAN A PLACEBO, so all you are giving them is a drop of water or a sugar pill with a label on it that makes it seem like the real thing, but anyone with a sense at all always reads the label, and looks it up in a book or the internet, and then realises that they have been given NOTHING, what are they then going to think...... "oh great" my doctor thinks that I am fine, he has given me some sugar pills.
Those who don't read the label are idiots and might have been taking the wrong medication for years, and those who take pills given to them by a doctor on the spot and told to come back in a week without knowing what they have taken are idiots as well.
Again, I ask you to prove me wrong, go and win that million dollars, then you can come back to me and laugh in my face
