Cause of Aurora Colorado Batman shooting

July 20, 2012, a 24 year old man with a gun, wearing a gas mask and bullet proof vest, opened fire during a 12:30 a.m. showing of the film The Dark Knight Rises in Theater Nine at the Century 16 movie theater in Aurora, Colorado. He set off a smoke grenade in the theater and started shooting, killing 14 people and injuring more than fifty.

The alleged shooter was James Holmes.. He was found next to his car in the theater parking lot with a rifle, shotgun, and handgun. He did not resist arrest.

Holmes told authorities about explosives at his residence in North Aurora. Aurora Police Chief Dan Oates said the shooter’s home was a site where there might be more explosives.

Homeoapth John Benneth examines the psychochemical evidence as to what may have triggered the violence.

It’s coming . .

The summer days breeze by. I find myself lounging. Before me is a full plate of fat, burgundy red cherries at which I pick: My cases, my videos, my correspondence, my vast studies, my blog  . .  

The point should be made over and over again, that every statement made against homeopathy by those who are masquerading as ‘atheists,’ ‘rationalists’ and ‘skeptics’ who hold themelves out to be ‘scientists’, or ‘defenders of logic’ . .  blows up in their faces . .  all is set . . all I have to do is strike the match.

HOMEOPATHS! Stand up, promote homeopathy for what it is, for what the pseudoscientists say it is not, the only REAL medicine we have . . as follows:

Response to Jessica Roy –  Woo, Boy: Singularity U’s Vivek Wadhwa Spreads the Dark Art of ‘Pseudoscience’
“Alan Smukler is right. And it’s laughable to see how out of touch with reality the homeopathy haters are, and how they violate their own implied standards, and this article by Jessica Roy is no exception. “The reference here supporting the claim that “several credible academic studies found that the alternative medicine wasn’t proven to work better than a placebo” is from the self-referencing Edzard Ernst, the recently defrocked mouthpiece for the troubled patent pharmaceutical industry now under criminal indictment for fraud and $3 billion dollar fine.
“When you ask just what studies they’re talking about, it turns out that there are none . . no comprehensive metanalysis of homeopathy has ever been able to conclude that the effects of the material analogs . . the homogenous substances used as medicine in homeopathy by a growing number of MDs . . is solely due to “the placebo effect.”
“Note that the lack of discretion and trope in “placebo.” The word, like the author, refers to nothing definite. If they could honestly say what they want us to believe, they’d say it. Where is the body of literature proving “placebo?” They can’t even say what it is! TEACH ME!
“Furthermore, the homeopathic principle of like cures like was discovered by overdosing with crude material substances before it was witnessed in the dilute. All vaccines, anti-toxins and anti-venoms work on this same principle of similitude. The word ‘homeopathy’ literally has nothing to do with dilutes.

[The only difference is that homeopaths have learned posology, how to admininister the right dose, effectively and safely.]

“So now look who’s being ‘unscientific.’ And so it follows, that my challenge to these professed ‘experts’ like Ernst is to show me one good study that proves homeopathic medicines are nothing but “placebos.” Do it and I’ll quit studying homeopathic medicine and go string beads.
“Homeopathy is real medicine, unlike what’s being injected into the rumps of the unwitting public . . “

My plate is still full of fat, burgundy red cherries at which I pick: My overwhelming case load, my videos, my correspondence, my vast studies, my blogs, my poetry and the cornerstone of medicine,  The Doctrine, ‘The Physics of Homeopathy’  . . by Fall this essay and those to follow will have dried and will scuttle on the hard thoroughfare like rip brown leaves . .what Springs turns to Fall, what is green, bright and startling soon becomes brown, dull and commonplace . .

Ah! Another fat cherry!

Million Dollar Challenge Revisited

OPEN LETTER to Phil Plaitt and the James Randi Educational Foundation.

Posted on Plaitt’s blog.

http://blogs.discovermagazine.com/badastronomy/2011/11/24/giving-thanks-2011/comment-page-1/#comment-445768

Dear Phil Plaitt,

Twelve years ago I applied for the James Randi Educational Foundation award to prove homeopathy. James Randi accepted my application, corresponded with me over a protocol, and then months later dismissed me as being inconsequential, claiming he was going to put Nobel laureate physicist Professor Brian Josephson and immunologist Jacques Benveniste to the test instead.

Canadian  author Syd Baumel of The Aquarian wrote to Prof . Josephson to inform him that my application to JREF preceded theirs. Prof. Josephson replied to say he never applied for Randi’ Challenge, was not interested in the Challenge, and Randi was sent back to me.

The basic protocol which Randi said would win the Challenge was a simple one. It would be to provide a method by which to identify placebo from verum in a double blind trial, of which there are several.

Randi finally ended correspondence with me. I’ll leave it to him to say why.

Since that time I have lectured at the Cavendish Laboratory at the invitation of Prof. Josephson on the supramolecular chemistry or the homeopathic remedy; Josephson says, “The idea that water can have a memory can be readily refuted by any one of a number of easily understood, invalid arguments.”

He describes how many scientists today suffer from “pathological disbelief;” that is, they maintain an unscientific attitude that is embodied by the statement “even if it were true I wouldn’t believe it.”

Does JREF suffer from pathological disbelief? If not, then prove it with my simple test for homeopathy, accepted by James Randi.

Leading a team of material scientists, the renowned Professor Emeritus Rustum Roy wrote a review of the literature on water structure and postulated it’s relevance to homeopathy, showing that the substances used in homeopathy have physical indices that identify them from their vehicles (as I proposed); Roy says that the literature “does definitively demolish the objection against homeopathy, when such is based on the wholly incorrect claim that since there is no difference in composition between a remedy and the pure water used, there can be no differences at all between them.”

Nobel laureate Luc Montagnier produced a series of experiments showing that high dilutes as used in homeopathy radiate an EM signal and have filterable crystalline-like nano structures, H-bond structures associated with their signal.

When Montgnier was asked if he is concerned that with hiss research into the natures of high dilutes as used in homeopathy he was drifting into pseudoscience, he replied adamantly: “No, because it’s not pseudoscience. It’s not quackery. These are real phenomena which deserve further study.”

In 2010 top water chemist Professor Emeritus Martin Chaplin of London South Bank University has said that water does indeed store and transmit information concerning solutes through its hydrogen bonded network.

There has been an explosion in the research of homeopathy. In 2007, Teela Johnson and Heather Boon wrote a review for pharmacists of the research in homeopathy in an article for the American Journal of Pharmaceutical Education entitled “Where Does Homeopathy Fit in Pharmacy Practice?” Am J Pharm Educ. 2007 February 15; 71(1): 07.

They say, “Several meta-analyses have also concluded that homeopathic treatment is significantly better than placebo. The first was carried out in 1991 by Kleijnen et al. They identified 107 published papers that scientifically evaluated the efficacy of homeopathically prepared treatments. Of these studies, 81 reported positive effects for homeopathy, with 9 of the 11 highest quality trials showing positive results.
“A second, extremely rigorous, meta-analysis was conducted in 1997 by Linde et al in an attempt to ascertain whether or not the clinical effects of homeopathy are due to placebo effects. They evaluated 186 clinical trials that tested the efficacy of homeopathically prepared treatments. Of these, 89 reported sufficient data to be included in the main meta-analysis. After controlling for publication bias, and quality of evidence, their results showed that homeopathy performed significantly better (combined odds ratio was 2.45 in favour of homeopathy) than placebo, with a confidence interval of 95%. Additional scrutiny, including methodological revisions by the authors themselves in a subsequent paper, confirmed these findings.”

The Cuban government has used homeopathy to stop its annual leptospirosis epidemic; the nation’s number one rated medical facility , the MD Anderson Cancer Clinic, has used homeopathy to treat cancer successfully in vitro and in vivo; the American Medical College of Homeopathy has opened this year in Phoenix, Arizona; the legislature there is now licensing homeopaths under the Doctor of homeopathy (DH) designation, medical doctors trained in the use of homeopathics as MD(H).

In light of this information, and the fact that my original protocol to JREF has not changed, I submit to you that my claim on the JREF award is now more valid than ever, and the challenge to you is to make good on it, and to put the original protocol, as submitted to JREF in January 0f 1999 to the test, using independent, scientifically qualified judges who have the credentials for approving the final protocol for such a test and disposition of the award.

According to Wikipedia, Plaitt formerly worked at the physics and astronomy department at Sonoma State University. In early 2007, he resigned from his job to write a book entitled Death from the Skies, .

On August 4, 2008, he became President of the James Randi Educational Foundation. He served in that position until January 1, 2010, when he was succeeded by noted skeptic D. J. Grothe.

Let’s see how he takes it.

Steven commented on People’s vs. Corporate Medicine

There’s nothing left to discuss. The science has been settled and Homeopathy doesn’t make the cut. This is why we’ve left it.

Goodbye John, you and Homeopathy will fade from memory despite all of your efforts.
Homeopaths are quickly becoming the new flat-earthers.

Steven

Dear Steven,

LOL! If there’s nothing left to discuss, then why are you still discussing it?

We’ve heard this same pathetic cry now for 200 years, the “end of homeopathy,’ how it’s ‘finally been exposed for the fraud that it is,’ and then a year later we hear its overtaken Congress.

It is Congressionally mandated now, you know.  you id know that, didn’t you?

In fact it’s been Congressionally mandated for over 100 years!

The FDCA was sponsored by a homeopath, Sen Royal Copeland, MD. Homeopathy is now being used to treat cancer patients in the nation’s number one rated cancer clinic, MD Anderson, in Houston. It’s growing at 30% annually worldwide.

And you think by posting a comment on a blog, moderated by a homeopath, you’re going to stop it?

“Oh gosh, in 45 words posted on the John Benneth Journal some guy named Steven just put a stop to an industry of FDA regulated and approved medicine. golly, what are we going to do now? I guess we’ll just have to burn that warehouse full of books on homeopathy and go back to swallowing that crap that killed off the Kennedys.”

Check it out Brainstein.

But before I pull the lever on my automatic allopathic self-burial system, where all I have to do is lie down, pull the lever and it dumps the dirt on top of me in the grave, could you please grant me one last request?

Could you answer a question?

Who are you talking about when you’ve decided the science has been settled? George “I’m the decider” Bush? Pee Wee Herman? Ronald MacDonald? James the Amazing Randi? Steven Novella? Scientists at Glaxo Smith Klein . .or Pfizer?

And just which science are you talking about ?

Christian Science? Rocket Science? Social Science? Pseudo Science? Political Science? The Science of Homeopathy? Mr. Science? The Science of Homo Dumbo? The Science of Creationism? The Science of Cretinism? The Wonderful World of Science? Popular Science? Modern Science? The Science of Atlantis?

The Scientist’s Science of Scientism? The Science of Science of Science of Science?

The Science of Steven Novellaa?

You know what I think? I think there just isn’t enough Science to go around. I mean, if you say the Science has been settled, it implies that people have been arguing over it, which means that people just aren’t getting enough of it. I think we should all have a backpack full of it. And you Professor Steven (Novellaa?), I nominate YOU to be the Scientist of all Scientists, Chief Scientist Steven Noellaaa?)

You’ll have to wear a lab coat and thick, horn rimmed glasses, of course, and talk in a monotone voice, and preface every sentence with “according to my precise calculations . . ” and give us the double blinded peer reviewed random controlled studies, tests and trials reported in peer reviewed double blinded no peek Science magazines, Journals, and Comic Books, like Super Scienceman.

Now I’ll just pull that lever . .

Hey!

It doesn’t work!

I’VE BEEN GYPPED!

NOVELLAAAAA!

People’s vs. Corporate Medicine

My videos have not always been considered completely politcally correct, socially acceptable or even in good taste.

In order to give my lecture, “The Supramolecular Chemistry of the Homeopathic Remedy” at the Cavendish laboratory at Cambridge, England,  I had to change the title of this video from “Homeopathy, the Jew of Modern Medicine” to what it is now.

Lately I’ve come to think that maybe I’m not as smart as I used to think. But gee whiz, these people who try to pass off skepticism for intelligence are really stupid.

It seems to me like the same kind of mentality of people who used to burn witches at the stake.

It’s not just the blatant hypocrisy that amazes me, its the unwillingness or inability  to challenge it.

It makes me wonder, ‘”what is it I don’t see about myself?” It’s not that I don’t have a lot of objectors, critics and bashers who follow me around, but usually they don’t have anything really constructive to say. It’s mostly just nasty name calling.

Now I got all the LGBT’s hating me.

I’m starting to run out of people to piss off.

Gotta be a reason for it . .

DISBAND THE HOMEOPATHIC ACTION TRUST

LONDON- A song about vaccination was performed at a meeting of homeopaths, gathered together to discuss the proper marketing of homeopathy.

The Vaccination Song was videotaped during a dinner of the Homeopathic Action Trust (HAT)on September 17th at  the Refectory at the School of Pharmacy, Brunswick Square,, and just this last week put up on Youtube  . . and then almost immediately withdrawn, reportedly because of opposition to it.

This is why homeopathy is treated as it is. It is because of organizations like HAT

HAT SHOULD BE DISBANDED!

Instead of presenting homeopathic medicine for what it is, curative medicine, superior to allopathic, their puerile stupidity, cowardice and self-serving antics are rubbing off on the rest of us and preventing the progress of real medicine.

Maybe HAT didn’t hear, maybe they aren’t aware of it, but a great number of very vocal people have been calling them frauds for YEARS now, and HAT doesn’t seem to even know.

They certainly haven’t done anything about it.

They claim they fund projects. When I went to their webpage to see what the projects were, all it was, was a blank map of Britain, with red push pins in it !!

And one in what looks like Tanganyika . .

When I went to their research section, they simply linked to the Malik bibliography, and linked to another website with that same damn picture from Clues of the Murdered Homeopath mystery, a spilled bottle of no. 35 pellets strewn amongst cut daisies.

Every phony website on homeopathy has the same damn picture in it. It just shows how careless some people are, knocking things over!

The website in turn was asking for £5000 each for several projects, one which promised to look into the physico chemical processes of high dilutes. At this point what can they say that hasn’t already been said?

Top material scientists have concluded that, like magnetic tape, water stores its “memory” though its hydrogen bonded network (Chaplin).

And wait a minute, isn’t this the same topic I was talking about at the Cavendish?

Yes, and I . . I invited HAT!

And they want £5000  to THINK about what I was offering to explain to them a year ago, just a few miles down the road on the same day they were camped out in Cambridge?

By the way, the hydrogen bond theory for homeopathy has been around since the sixties (Barnard)

Hell, I gave everybody the answer FOR FREE!

Meanwhile, you have angry comedians off on a jihad against homeopathy. Funnyman Dara O’Briain’s fatwah against homeopaths says they should be hunted down by mobs, put in sacks,, and beaten with sticks . .  like they used to do with witches.

Can you imagine the doing that to Peter Fisher?

“What the heck, throw in Luc Montagnier, too! Anif we push, I think we can stuff Josepshon in there too!”

Everyone laughs! “OMG that’s funny. Please please, turn of the laughing gas, I’m suffocating here!”

“It’s only water,” he says, and everybody screams. “Stop stop, call 911! I’m having an OBE!”

Standing before large audiences in a navy blue jacket,  James “the Amazing” Randi struts back and forth on a high stage in front of a large audience. He is very serious. He profoundly  says homeopaths are criminals, frauds, their practice a scam.

Name one homeopath beside George Vithoulkas and me who has stood up to this prevaricating  bully.

Does anyone see what I’m saying? Instead of producing videos that they immediately yank from Youtube, why haven’t these homeopathy organizations throughout the world orchestrated a solicitation of malice law suit against his organition, the James Randi Educational Foundation (JREF?)

Why hasn’t an organization like HAT organized a  defamation law suit against JREF?

What hasn’t HAT  filed a tortious interference law suit against JREF, and similar organizations and their supporters long ago?

If you let them say things like that without publicly challenging them, then it looks like you accept it to be true.

It’s time to stop rolling over an go after these people who are trying to ruin us. Make them stop, shut them up.

Richard Adams, the wealthy founder of the Internet backbone, UUNET, and for years the treasurer of JREF, according to Randi put up one million dollars to taunt homeopaths with a challenge to prove homeopathy to Randi.

It is a phony offer. There is no million to prove homeopathy. It doesn’t matter if there is a million dollars in Guatemalan negotiable bonds hidden somewhere in a mayonaise jar, there no intent to give it to anyone to prove homeopathy. yet thi phony offer is what they use to actively defame us with.

It is more like a jelly bean guessing contest, managed only by Randi himself, in which he, like Boris Karloff in some medical horror epic,  is the sole arbiter.

Now why isn’t HAT going after something so transparent as that?  Why aren’t they shutting down an shutting up Adams, Randi, JREF and their chin-chuntering supporters with charges of malicious interference of trade?

WHy aren’t they asking the obvious questions, such as what connections does JREF have with the pharmaceutical industry?

How much have the pharmaceutical racketeers, who have been convicted in US court, put directly or indirectly into Adams and Randi’s pants?

The answer? In homeopathic jargon, “Mind, delusion, raptio, Stockholm syndrome, believes his captors.”

Homeopaths have come to sie with their accusers. At the first whiff of an indictment, their necks go stiff as their eyes glaze over.  In their heads, the curse of Hanuman, the Indian legend of the monkey who was hypnotized into forgetting his powers, is at work. It turns in their brains like a worm in its husk.

What a weird coincidence. Hanuman, the monkey who forgot how capable he was, had practically the same odd name as Hahnemann, the man who founded homeopathy eons later.

And how apropos.

Homeopaths, the world’s best physicians, the best workers of internal medicine and quantum psychiatry, these practitioners . . not of other- symptom-producing-allopathy, but real medicine,  curative medicine, quantum medicine designed not to extract money from its victims, but medicine designed to heal.

At every turn, at every allowance, homeopaths, individually and collectively, should at least be demanding why, from every skeptic who opens his mouth about it, why, if it’s so obviously criminal, why haven’t settlements been made in court?

WHY?

Randi says “so sue me.” A better question is why hasn’t he sued us? If homeopathy is as flawed in the way he describes it, in his numerous lectures, jack-in-the-box epiphanies and videos made throughout the last decade, then where is the mass class action suit against homeopathy?

Why is he, the Skeptic’s Christ, and all the truth seekers at the James Randi Educational Foundation not leading the charge?

Why instead is he holding out his mendicant hand to the piddling, niggling crowd, bilking them of .50 worth of courage for 100 times the cost, and a subscription to his toilet paper, when he could be reaping millions in a lawsuit against the Evil Placeboists and their rattling panaceas?

Am I asking a question I can’t answer? Am I? Or is it obvious?

Can you find the key, hidden in the picture?

And me too. When I was in England last year they were meeting in Cambridge the same day I was lecturing there on the Supramolecular Chemistry of the Homeopathic Remedy at the Cavendish Laboratory, answering the questions of science with science before the crowned heads of physics at the world’s most prestigious science facility, where were they?

Was one of them there? No, of course not! They were outside the lecture hall with the skeptics picketing my lecture for having destroyed the placebo hypothesis!

I not only humbly invited them in, to attend the Cavendish, at my expense, with full security to protect them from hurled garbage, but I volunteered to go to them and give my lecture there . .

But “nope, sorry, we hate you Benneth.”

“How dare you,” one screamed at me. “Are you trying to make us go to work everyday and like the wogs, make our patients wait for treatment in long lines, without being able to blame our mistakes on figments of the imagination? If you manage to prove that these substances are real medicines with biological action, we’ll have to buy malpractice insurance and go to school to learn CPR!”

“If Benneth proves homeopathy is real, I may have to run that malaria clinic down in Uganda,” said another. “What will the Royal Family do?”

They were too busy dancing on the lawn, rwwing pictures on white boards on whiteboards and making videos with the sound muted . .

“Mind, delusion, thinks whiteboards are better than Power Point presentations.”

HAT has been taking their orders from the enemies of mankind because it suits them just fine.

well, tt’s time for them to go to work for humanity or stop and get out of the business.

HAT should be getting multi million dollar research grants instead of the chicken or fish at the banquet.

HAT should be supporting with hard cold cash the efforts of homeopath Carol Boyce’s videos of malaria clinics in Africa and leptospirosis epidemics in Cuba.

HAT should be laying out hard cold cash for the Homeopathy Works for Me video series, probably the greatest campaign ever mounted for homeopathy.

HAT should be on the front lines in the General Assemblies of the Occupation Movement, chiming in with chants of

“Mr. OBAMA, TEAR DOWN THIS WALL STREET!

“Mr. OBAMA, TEAR DOWN THIS PREDATORY HEALTH SCARE SYSTEM!”

And to the homeopathic community they should be saying:

Help us:

“HELP US PUT A HOMEOPATH IN EVERY OCCUPATION ENCAMPMENT.”

“HELP US PUT A HOMOEOPATH IN EVERY HOSPITAL.”

DON’T VACCINATE, INOCULATE, WITH HOMEOPATHY!

Mr. Treddinick, tear down this Homeopathic Action Trust!

Blessings, good health to the craft, and so mote it be,

John Benneth, Homeopath
