In terms of "success," Homeopathy industry has been around for a long time, is continuing to grow in popularity, and has made billions of dollars, so would that make it the most successful "medical scam" in history? Definitely at the top?


This is 3rd post. What is your measure of success?
1. length of existence?
2. continues to grow in popularity?
3. profitable?
4. a combination of the above?

Funny how skeptics despise homeopathy so much, but can't answer my simple question.

Why can't you state a straight forward question?

Do I need to walk your hands through everything? Some things are just common sense.

What's the matter killtown you can't pick something? Why are you putting off telling us what you mean by success?

Just say it.

If you don't know what the definition of "most successful" mean, then go to dictionary.com.

Hey! You two kids, get off my lawn!
What seems to be the problem here? Besides the two of you going around and around in circles in a futile p!ss!ng contest?

While looking up a satisfactory definition of 'success' to put an end to this, I came across this little ditty:

There is nothing so useless as doing efficiently that which should not be done at all. - Peter F. Drucker


Now move on! I've got more important fish to fry. Like Spambots and Christmas trees and sugar cookies that need to be baked and all that holiday nonsense to be attended to.

Since the definition of success is not stated by Killtown who refuses to define success then I will use my own definition of success to claim that organ theft is the most successful 'scam' to date.

I don't do Christmas either but my 'other half' certainly does. So the dead tree is a regular thing but it fits in with the Yuletide spirit. This year I'm going for Saturnalia and sacrificing all the Spambots I can find. :lol:

How is organ theft a scam and not just theft?

Well when you keep it vague, no.

When you say "organ theft," do you mean like organs donations that came from people who sold their own organs, but the organ donation companies didn't disclose this?

Interesting idea. No. It is illegal to sell organs in the US and many other countries.
