http://www.baskeptics.org/hotnews.htm And we thought Belgium only put nuts in their chocolates
They aren't nuts, and the headline is a little misleading. It was a stunt to disprove homeopathy by attempting to kill themselves with a homeopathic solution. It was a failure, thus proving their point.
It was a nice stunt and a fine way of showing just how bogus homeopathy is.
So.... arsenic isn't poisonous?
Not in a dilution of one part per 30,000 it aint. In fact it's actually good for you in such dilutions. Maybe they've prooven homeopathy instead.
Phil, 30C is a dilution of 1 part in 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000, 000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 parts of water. At such a concentration it is unlikely that any trace of the arsenic remains. Might as well wave a dried frog over a glass of tap water while chanting a teletubbies song. That is just as effective in doing good or harm as a homeopathic remedy.
I love it. What a great idea to show the absurdity of homeopathy.
Agreed. What's nuts isn't what the skeptics did, its the caving in of insurance companies that cover this nonsense. Randi had a nice read on it too.
DAMN! I've been using a dried Chameleon and singing the Barney song.
i'm not sure i will believe very much this website reports on. CJ
Did you read the article? They are debunking these ridiculous claims, not endorsing them.
There was an article about the mass suicide in the most recent Skeptical Enquirer magazine as well. Pretty funny. Brian
actually yes, and i dont really see where they try to challenge the claims. unless the last half of it is written sarcastically, then i understand it. if not, i dont understand where they try to challenge the claims. CJ
I thought the whole thing was written sarcastically. This passage had me LOL: "The idea is refreshing; unlike free-energy scams that tap the zero-point energy, or shield gravity, Hunt Aircraft Corp. proposes to do it the old-fashioned way, i.e., violate Conservation of Energy." It's a site for skeptics. Pointing out that a proposed scheme violates the Conservation of Energy is all that is needed to challenge the claim.
