Homeopathic Horizons

If you've ever wondered if homeopathy actually works (despite the fact that it seems impossible according to what science currently knows), I invite you to read a transcript of a recent instalment of BBC's Horizon program. Click here to check it out.

A skeptical overview of homeopathy can be found here.

Yes, I know some people will say, "I know it works!" but have you ever looked at monographs for various medications? They test them against placebos, and it's simply amazing how often "sugar pills" seem to bring about a cure, either because the original condition was psychosomatic or because the affliction went into spontaneous remission.

If you don't believe that, could I interest you in Dr. Timothy's Guaranteed Extra-Potent Snake Oil? It's fortified with double-strength Placeborite, plus the miracle ingredient Sucrose. (No snakes were harmed during the production of this potion.)
