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