The statement "like cures like" is often used, and is qualified by the reasoning that the more dilute a substance becomes, the more potent it becomes. Despite the rational, scientific age that we live in there are many people who, irrationally, believe in homeopathy. Sadly many people with dire health problems, desperate for hope, will spend all they have on a homeopathic cure which consists entirely of either water, sugar pills, or some other such placebo. All objective examinations of homeopathy quickly determine that it could only be a centuries-old get rich quick scheme, as there is no legitimate scientific or medical reasoning behind it.
Mary's children: Mommy, will we eat today?
Mary: No dearie, mommy needs the grocery money for her homeopathy and the palm reader this month.
Do not be fooled by phrases such as: 'memory of water' as basis for the molecular basis of homeopathy's effectiveness. Such claims have been systematically discredited.
You: Throw yourself in a fire, homeopath.
