Ars looks at homeopathy

Diluting the scientific method: Ars looks at homeopathy

An interesting analysis of homeopathic medicine, and why rejecting science is not the best medicine at all. I'm not much of a fan of the opposite extreme (candy-store-like prescriptions from certain doctors) but rejecting science is not the answer. Science is good. Science, when properly done, allows people to expand their knowledge. Homeopathy is a return to the dark ages, where people's evidence for why something works is nothing more than conjecture and anecdote. This IS a great place for science to step in and say WHY something works (or doesn't work) but to accept something merely on superstition and anecdote is misguided at best, and dangerous at worst.
