If anyone wants those really long section broken up for convenience, ping me and suggest where to put the break and I'll "lock" it with a stern note and do the work. If you have a partial rebuttal that should go in the new section(s), just let me know where to break them, as well. Thanks, and have fun, fellow goats and assorted rodents! ħumanUser talk:Human 19:25, 23 September 2008 (EDT)

I am a bit confused because I have things to say (big surprise) but sort of by definition my responses will NOT be cut out with the rational clone stamp. So do I just toss them in there anyway and figure that Susan will clean up after me? Again? Carptrash 20:09, 23 September 2008 (EDT)
You might consider joining wiki4cam and setting up a side-by-side to our responses there ;) Alternatively, you might want to make your points here in the talk page, where they won't get deleted or reworked? ħumanUser talk:Human 20:25, 23 September 2008 (EDT)
No need to set up 3 parallel worlds when I probably could not get you guys to agree that there are even two. Also us voice in the Wilderness types are used to being dissed at every possible turn. If you can share so can I.Carptrash 20:31, 23 September 2008 (EDT)
I'm not sure how you can make a response to homeopathy that's longer than "YOU'RE FEEDING THEM WATER AND THE MAGICAL FORCE YOU USE TO EXPLAIN IT DOESN'T EXIST!". ArmondikoVd hominem 10:52, 24 September 2008 (EDT)
Carptrash - If your edits are in line with our mission and this description of af a RationalWiki article then they should stand. If not, then they may have a short life.--Bobbing up 15:45, 24 September 2008 (EDT)

US/UK spoerling[edit]

Sorry, I 'mercanized a lot of spelling, without really seeing that the "original" spelled "homoeopathic" really badly to start with. But I fixed a bunch of typos that were really tops and stuff. And added a few sentences. ħumanUser talk:Human 02:29, 24 May 2009 (UTC)

Harm[edit]

let's clear this up here instead of edit comments. Homoeoeoeopathy is harmless in itself - it's just water, right? The harm comes from depending on it instead of, y'know, going to a doctor. Totnesmartin (talk) 21:22, 24 January 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, that's my line of thinking. --ConcernedresidentAsk me about your mother 21:33, 24 January 2010 (UTC)

Oopsie, that's not right[edit]

The reason that doctors do not give sick people substances that would do harm to healthy people is that such substances are called "poisons." Again, no explanation beyond magic words like "potentised" (actual meaning: "shaken"; see below) is offered as to why poisons are good things to give to sick people.

This statement is wrong. All drugs can do harm to healthy people if they do not have the condition for which the drug is intended to treat. Botox stands out as a dead-ringer for this "we give poisons to people for medical reasons", and is considered a drug at the dosage levels used. Warfarin blocks the clotting action of the human body, and actually was (and still is) used as a rat poison. Yet we give it to sick people, because sometimes? They are clotting more than they should. --Eira omtg! The Goat be praised. 09:44, 3 April 2010 (UTC)

You're just lost, sorry. Or maybe I am, if I have no idea what you are referring to. ħumanUser talk:Human 09:54, 3 April 2010 (UTC)

[edit]

Homeopathic medicines are NOT made using only dilution. Dilution alone would do nothing whatsoever.

So true. Actually homeopathic medicines^Hproducts are made using dilution and magic rituals!! known as "succussion". --Kitsune Inari (talk) 16:57, 27 May 2015 (UTC)
