“Homeopaths argue that water has a memory.”
Scarlett Thomas, The End of Mr. Y

Christopher Hitchens
“We have known for a long time that Prince Charles' empty sails are so rigged as to be swelled by any passing waft or breeze of crankiness and cant. He fell for the fake anthropologist Laurens van der Post. He was bowled over by the charms of homeopathic medicine. He has been believably reported as saying that plants do better if you talk to them in a soothing and encouraging way.”
Christopher Hitchens

Mahatma Gandhi

Nick Hornby
“Did you know that Jacques Benveniste, one of the world's leading homeopathic "scientists," now claims that you can *email* homeopathic remedies? Yeah, see, what you do is you can take the "memory" of the diluted substance out of the water electromagnetically, put it on your computer, email it, and play it back on a sound card into new water. I mean, that could work, right?

(Nick's thoughts after reading Francis Wheen's book "How Mumbo-Jumbo Conquered the World")”
Nick Hornby, The Polysyllabic Spree

Jim Al-Khalili
“I am a cuddly atheist... I am against creationism being taught in schools because there is empirical evidence that it is a silly notion... I am passionately concerned about the rise in pseudo-science; in beliefs in alternative medicine; in creationism. The idea that somehow it is based on logic, on rational arguments, but it's not. It doesn't stand up to empirical evidence.

In the same way in medicine, alternative medicines like homeopathy or new age therapies – reiki healing – a lot of people buy into it and it grates against my rationalist view of the world. There is no evidence for it. It is deceitful. It is insidious. I feel passionately about living in a society with a rationalist view of the world.

I will be vocal on issues where religion impacts on people's lives in a way that I don't agree with – if, for instance, in faith schools some of the teaching of religion suggests the children might have homophobic views or views that are intolerant towards other belief systems...

I am totally against, for example, bishops in the House of Lords. Why should someone of a particular religious faith have some preferential treatment over anyone else? This notion that the Church of England is the official religion of the country is utterly outmoded now.”
Jim Al-Khalili

“The idea that water has a memory can be refuted by any one of several easily understood, invalid, arguments.”
Brian Josephson

Éliphas Lévi
“Occult Medicine is essentially sympathetic. Reciprocal affection, or at least real goodwill, must exist between doctor and patient. Syrups and juleps have very little inherent virtue; they are what they become through the mutual opinion of operator and subject; hence homoeopathic medicine dispenses with them and no serious inconvenience follows.”
Éliphas Lévi, Transcendental Magic: Its Doctrine and Ritual

“Homeopathy is the true and very advanced healing science much beyond the scope of current methods of chemical analysis and interpretation.”
Aditya Sardana, Ayahuasca - The Sacred Psychedelic!!

“Homeopathy is the only non-violent health care system”
Ron Harris

Jalina Mhyana
“Our marriage began
with knots and fangs;
vows inked on skin.
Black venom stained
our fingers, twinned
snakes strangling
the marriage vein
in Celtic macramé –
cocksure monogamy.

We became one,
me and the gun,
the serpent reeling
itself from the needle.
I had few firsts left;
marriage a wild west
for the hedonist.

Snakes unspooled
like figure-eights,
symbols of eternity.
Acrimony, alimony;
Leave the moaning
to adults. We children
will be wiser
wed, inoculated –
these hickeys,
Jalina Mhyana, Dreaming in Night Vision: A Story in Vignettes

“Every quack is, indeed, a demagogue; and relies, for his success on nearly the same arts, with his political and religious, or rather irreligious, brethren.”
Daniel Drake, The Western Journal of Medicine and Surgery, 1841, Vol. 4

Michael  Brooks
“The third oddity was the surface on which Lawrence was doing his own succussion. It was a huge, black leather-bound King James Bible. Having done three raps on the Bible, his fist clenched around a vial containing a homeopathic remedy made from amethyst, Lawrence looked up. His face said, "I wish you hadn't seen that".
"You don't have to use a Bible," he assured me.”
Michael Brooks, 13 Things That Don't Make Sense: The Most Baffling Scientific Mysteries of Our Time

Jasim Uddin
“আমাদের দেশের লোকেরা যেমন ভুত, প্রেত, ওঝা পীর ও ফকিরে বিশ্বাস করে তেমনি হোমিওপ্যাথিক ঔষধে বিশ্বাস করে। এ দেশের লোক সব সময়ই কিছু বিশ্বাস করিবার জন্য প্রস্তুত হইয়া থাকে। যাহারা হোমিওপ্যাথিকে বিশ্বাস করে তাহারা বন্ধু সমাবেশে এই ঔষধের কার্যকারিতা সম্বন্ধে এমন সব রোমাঞ্চকর কাহিনী বানাইয়া বলে যে শ্রোতাদের মধ্যে কেউ যদি তাহা অবিশ্বাস করিতে চায়, তাহার পক্ষে সেখানে তিষ্ঠান দায় হইয়া পড়ে। সে গল্প যাহারা শোনে তাহারা আবার তাহাতে আরও কিছু রঙ চড়াইয়া অপরের কাছে বলে।”

Isabel Allende, Ripper

Wendy Thacher Jensen
“This book is written for our animals, who trust us with their safekeeping. To keep them healthy, we turn to modern medicine, but it is ill-equipped to address chronic disease in our animals and ourselves. We have become dependent on pharmaceuticals to address every ailment, one at a time. There is a different way. What if we as animal lovers could change our focus from individual symptoms to an awareness of the whole animal and their innate ability to heal? Then we would be well on our way to making our beloved companions' lives a lot better.”
Wendy Thacher Jensen, Practical Handbook of Veterinary Homeopathy: Healing Our Companion Animals from

“There’s this myth that certain cultures have a better way of handling their old leathery people, but we just called him a shaman because Fruit Roll Up with Braids wasn’t on our cultural radar.”
Marty Barrett, Limericks of Loss And Regret: Gripping And Poignant Interludes

“He who considers disease results to be the disease itself, and expects to do away with these as disease, is insane. It is an insanity in medicine, an insanity that has grown out of the milder forms of mental disorder in science, crazy whims. The bacteria are results of disease. In the course of time we will be able to show perfectly that the microscopical little fellows are not the disease cause, but that they come after, that they are scavengers accompanying the disease, and that they are perfectly harmless in every respect. They are the outcome of the disease, are present wherever the disease is, and by the microscope it has been discovered that every pathological result has its corresponding bacteria. The Old School consider these the cause, but we will be able to show that disease cause is much more subtle than anything that can be shown by a microscope. We will be able to show you by a process of reasoning, step by step, the folly of hunting for disease cause by the implements of the senses.
