Hi Kevin, welcome to the forum. Not sure why you are getting all worked up over skeptics decrying homeopathy, however, let me add my two cents if I may.
Here is a link to Walgreen: http://www.walgreens.com/search/results ... omeopathic
As an example, which doesn't even begin to describe the issue skeptics have with homeopathic medicines, stores such as Walgreens which can be found in many neighborhoods across the world are selling "medicines" such as homeopathic teething drops for children who probably are getting no relief for their pain. It's serious business Kevin, but thanks for letting us read your opinion.
Just one example, but one of the reasons I, as a skeptic, gets quite worked up over homeopathic medicine.

hahahahahahaha
welcome kevin!!
so i guess you are one of those skeptics-haters
that doesnt realized skepticism help us on our everyday life


and... if homeopathy worked wouldnt be an alternative medicine
it would be simply MEDICINE

have you actually reserched what is homeopathy?
IT IS JUST SHAKING WATER!!.. thats it
i understand if you believe in it without knowing what it is
but if somebody does.. then they are self delluded or actually believe water is magic

Clean water is pretty safe stuff, and essential too. It's legal to drink and sell water. Bottle water, sparkling mineral water, vitamin water, tonic water, carbonated water, flavored sugar water. I don't see many skeptics bothering to debunk the claims of these water sellers.

And JAMA has been a pharm rag since the 1970s. Occassionally they review non-western or alternative medicines, but modern medical reviews aren't authoraties on their use and practice. JAMA is not an authority on alternative medicine. Plain and simple.

Try telling the 3 billion people in India and China that their medicine isn't real medicine.

Sometimes, doing nothing is better and safer than doing something foolish.

If Homeopathy, or any form of medicine, makes the patient feel safer, reassured, peaceful, empowered, feel like they're getting special attention, feel like they are cared for, that medicine is surely worth something. Where are all the complaints against homeopathy by it's patients? The only ones complaining about homeopathy are the people who are NOT using it!

The whole point of skepticism, of debunking, is to raise questions, concerns, alarms, investigations, and ultimately take actions at REAL problems. Problems like financial and health frauds, health risks, real dangers and abuses to society. That's the whole point of skepticism and investigation.

What is the point of investigating or debunking something that is safe? And has a long proven record of safety. Where's the harm caused to any segment of society by the use and practice of homeopathy? NOWHERE! No need for alarm. In fact .. false alarm.

False alarms are fraud.
