Wie habe ich den Spaß an den Naturwissenschaften verloren...?

Achtung: Trägt den Titel "Längster Beitrag bisher überhaupt"

Diese Frage treibt mich neuerdings aus verschiedenen Gründen, auf die ich jetzt nicht näher eingehe, um. Da die Antwort dagegen theoretisch für Einige interessant sein könnte, möchte ich versuchen, sie öffentlich (und gnadenlos subjektiv) zu erarbeiten.

Homeopathy - there's nothing in it

www.1023.org.uk - Some skeptic friends of mine live in Leicester/ UK and take part in this event:
"At 10:23am on January 30th, more than 300 homeopathy sceptics nationwide will be taking part in a mass homeopathic overdose"

I follow them on twitter and post some comments about the topic myself. This is what another friend, who has a doctor in biology answered. I HAD to post this in public:

Me:
Still wondering why I should BUY homeopathic stuff intstead drinking water directly from my kitchen water-tap....

Answer:
"because you do not want give your many to these big bad pharmaceutical leviathans, but to those tiny little friend-of-the-earth type homoeopathic businesses. Hey, they do no animal testing,the production process is totally green because ther are no toxic end-or byproducts or intermediates. And they're not in it for the money anyway."

"here's how you become a true homoeopathic dealer and avoid facing poverty. Focus on a common Organon drug, say Echinacea. The usual dilution is a C30, i.e. dilute the "Urtinktur" 30 times by 1:100. Thus, if you buy 20 ml Echinacea Urtinktur, you have sufficient raw material for about 10^58 Liters Echinacea C30. (For comparison, the atlantic ocean has a volume of 354*10^18 Liters). Therefore, you will probably be unable to sell it all, I guess.
Yet: 20 ml of urtinktur come in at 11 Euro. Enough to sell 10 Million 20 ml bottles C30 at 8 Euro/unit.
What a cool business model."

And here is another topic related video I love:
I mused about the fact, whether I drink my own urine when drinking water from my water-tap, because it all ends in the same water-circle:
The answer on twitter was: I do!
"If homeopathy works, I drink my own piss"
I call that "homöopathische Eigenurintherapie" could somebody translate that? Leo couldn't ;-)

Ein wundervolles Weihnachtsfest und alles Gute für 2010!

I'm looking forward to Christmas
It's sentimental I know
But I just really like it

I am hardly religious
I’d rather break bread with Dawkins than Desmond Tutu
To be honest

And yes I have all of the usual objections to consumerism
The commercialisation of ancient religions
And the westernisation of a dead Palestinian
Press-ganged into selling Playstations and beer
But I still really like it

I really like Christmas
Though I'm not expecting
A visit from Jesus

I'll be seeing my dad
My brother and sisters, my gran and my mum
They'll be drinking white wine in the sun
I'll be seeing my dad
My sisters and brother, my gran and my mum
They'll be drinking white wine in the sun

I don't go for ancient wisdom
I dont believe just cos ideas are tenacious
It means they are worthy

I'm ambivalent to churches
Some of the hymns that they sing have nice chords
Though the lyrics are dodgy

And yes I have all of the usual objections to miseducation
Of children forced into a cult institution and taught to externalise blame
And to feel ashamed and to judge things as plain right or wrong
But I quite like the songs

I really like London
Though Christmas is not quite as white as I’d hoped
It’s kind of European

I'm not expecting great presents
Ye olde combination of socks, jocks and chocolate
Is just fine by me

Cos I’ll be seeing my dad
My brother and sisters, my gran and my mum
They'll be drinking white wine in the sun
I'll be seeing my dad
My sisters and brother, my gran and my mum
They'll be drinking white wine in the sun

And you my baby girl
My jetlagged infant daughter
You'll be handed round the room
Like a puppy at a petting zoo

And you’re too young to know
But you will learn one day
That wherever you are and whatever you face
These are the people
Who'll make you feel safe in the world
My sweet blue-eyed girl

And if my baby girl
When you're twenty one or thirty one
And Christmas comes around
And you find yourself 9000 miles from home

You’ll know whatever comes
Your brothers and sisters and me and your mum.
Will be waiting for you in the sun

Girl when Christmas comes
Your brothers and sisters
Your aunts and your uncles
Your grandparents, cousins
And me and your mum.
Will be drinking white wine in the sun
Waiting for you in the sun
Drinking white wine in the sun
Waiting for you

I really like Christmas
It’s sentimental I know
