CHEMISTRY OF PLASMA . . or placebo?

My last column ended this way:

I beg your pardon if by raising an objection I have rocked the Titanic, but the stated recognition that vaccines help develop immunity by imitating an infection, stumbles over a painful stub-toe that bears immediate hindsight to a huge medical stub-toe: it is one of two reasons for rejecting doctrinal homeopathy, a long practiced medical tradition.
Creating immunity from any particular disease by staging an imitation of that disease is the primary strategy of homeopathy in treating, not just infectious diseases, but a wide range of human problems, such as those caused by emotional stress (like peptic ulcers) infection and toxicity and allopathic psychiatry. The broad application of pathological similitude to treat a wide variety of human, animal and even plant, i.e. biological afflictions, is on one count why for over 200 years homeopathy has been banned by standard medical practice.
So this is really an odd conundrum. On one hand, according to the CDC, the use of artificial imitative diseases is the only strategy for conveying immunity, such as using bovine smallpox to eradicate the human strain. On the other hand, its use is rejected. It would appear that one hand is ignorant of the other.

Before you go any further on this errand, this is April 1oth, in my opinion the birthday of the world’s greatest medical genius, and there’s a couple of things I think you ought to know in regard to that. Number One is anyone who is in the commentary on homeopathy, who hasn’t read Samuel Hahnemann’s Organon, doesn’t know what he or she is talking about. I don’t care if he or she is the Surgeon or Attorney’s General, Matlock, Jesus or Einstein, if he or she hasn’t read the Organon and talks long enough about homeopathy, he or she will eventually say something dead [something] wrong about it, a clue that they have made a long habit of using their mental illness as a club, on others, while toasting their KoolAid on other topics, long before they had anything to say about homeopathy.

The second thing I would like to say is that anyone who holds himself or herself out as a practitioner of homeopathy who hasn’t read Hahnemann’s Organon is committing malpractice, and this includes doctors lay, medical and otherwise. Happy birthday Sam.

CHEMSTRY OF PLACEBO

As I intimated in a previous paragraph, as one hand is to the other, there is a second count to this dialectic, the issue of chemistry. What is the chemistry of the homeopathic remedy? Settled science doesn’t seem to have an answer for that. From my perspective, we could say biochemistry, we could say electrochemistry, we could say physico-chemistry, we could say quantum chemistry, and as Hahnemann was a Freemasons we could even say Geometry, and as skeptics we must decline to answer, as we are forced to say there is no distinctive chemistry to the homeopathic remedy . . but to invoke the truth in the face of the null hypothesis, just asking what it is, is evocative of the truth, the chemistry of the homeopathic remedy is solvent enough, because no one seems to know the answer, and this is why: The nose of settled science hasn’t been rubbed in the physical assays.

That’s what I’m here to do. This is my God-given task. It is my score to settle, to present the physical and biochemical indices of the homeopathic remedy.

John Benneth Homeopathy‏ @JBennethJournal replying to @scrutinizer_the @6x10E23

In 1999 I was the first to apply for James Randi’s million-dollar challenge to prove homeopathy. Randi panicked and tried to avoid me by challenging Benveniste instead, who sent him back to me and my triple-blind dielectric strength test. Randi’s been cowering ever since.

12:42 PM – 23 Mar 2018

Dr Graham Lappin‏ @LappinGraham replyireplying to @JBennethJournal @scrutinizer_the @6x10E23

You can prove homeopathy? I’ll rush out and rewrite my textbook. And I’ll get all those other scientists to rewrite the laws of nature.

John Benneth Homeopathy‏ @JBennethJournal replying to @LappinGraham @scrutinizer_the @6x10E23

Can I prove homeopathy? Yes of course, Dr. Lappin, I can prove homeopathy. So can you if you are willing to lose your job as a pharmacologist. What more proof do I need than James Randi and his million dollars? What more proof do you need than the basophil degranulation test?

———-~————

So as you can see, skepticism immediately not only draws us away from the theme of my previous journal, conflating the homeopathic remedy and the vaccine, it wants to ignore an even uglier truth: Homeopathy and the disease prophylaxis of immunization share a common ancestor in the electronic structure of their chemistry. In quantum chemistry, electronic structure is the state of motion of electrons in an electrostatic field created by stationary nuclei. The term encompass both the wave functions of the electrons and the energies associated with them. Electronic structure is what determines the molecule’s properties of action. It may be a novel presentation of this essay that at the quantum level, the smallpox serum and homeopathic Variolinum share the same electronic structure, and though inverse semiologically, they pose similar triggers and snares.

You may immediately repose a reasonable objection, calling into question the presumed deterioration of molecular properties due to theoretical dissociation by hydrolysis in the manufacture of a homeopathic remedy, unless we assume that electronic structure is holographic, from the solid first phase of matter to plasma, from the molecule to its infinitesimal, the electronic structure remains the same.

So the next question then is how do water molecules in the homeopathic remedy imitate the electronic structure of the hydrolyzed solute throughout infinite dilution?

Every field has a circuitry, streams within it, channels of energy that act as capacitors, so where we find an electromagnetic field we are compelled to seek its circuitry, and so in the study of homeopathic chemistry this is found in the hydrogen bonding of the water molecule, the linkage that allows water molecules to chain together to form recursive fractal antennae. The electronic structure of water can be a rote copy of matter’s grammar, imitating the solute’s communication, at the subatomic level, with organic entities and inorganic elements, to trigger endemic processes, or annihilate exogenic antigens.

This is how water imitates the electronic structure of matter.

The water molecule is tetrahedral in shape, that is to say it has transverse lines drawn from O input and output ports connecting water molecules around impurities, most notably in homeopathic remedies around impurities such as ethanol, nanoscopic silica and atmospheric cavitation, i.e. bubbles, interstitials that give hydrogen bonds formatting by causing the molecule to go flat, with one port aimed at the center of the bubble, with the other three

lateral around the sphere. Hydrogen bonding of water molecules allows for chain reactions, molecular self-assembly into an infinite number of shapes, circuitry, capacitors, electromagnetic lenses and fractal antennas. It takes its architectural instructions from hydrolyzed guest solutes, creating a circuitry mimicking the guest, transmitting it’s unique signal to recipient DNA.

A number of scientists, most notably Benveniste, Montagnier and Conte have recorded EMF signals coming off this H-bonded structuring, from the low kilowatt range to high beta. Montagnier found that when homeopathically ionized solutions were mµ shielded from the background radiation (Schumann resonances) the 1kw signal quit, suggesting an external power source, a transduction of biased signals.

This is eyebrow raising. It suggests that matter, irrespective of phase, has within it, in all condensations of HO phase, electromagnetic lensing, fractal antennas and recursive electrograms that transduce the background radiation into a specific, comprehensive signal, emitted throughout the spectrum.

WAKE UP POLLYANNA

How, in the homeopathic dilution process, do these supramolecular solutions maintain properties of the solute in endless dilutions? How do the semiotics of Morbillinum, or Scheherezad, for that matter, persist through infinite dilution?

This is a question easily answered:

In the homeopathic remedy we see evidence of a chain reaction in the H-bonds of water. As electronic structuring is a recursive function that shuns the chaotrope and structures around the cosmotrope, we may assume the seed to be the electron, given it is the smallest genera.

How is the electron extracted from the solute?

I have long pondered the connection between tritiate and triturate. Hopefully it will intrigue you as well. So that you may remember it, in pursuit of the cosmotrope the tritiation of the solute is triggered by its trituration.

This is the subject of my next entry, and with your permission I would like to take this moment more to point out to you that this isn’t just a regurgitation of fact, this is novel in its game. To my knowledge no one has done what it is I am doing here, revealing the chemistry and physics of homeopathy. This should be a great boon to the world will because I feel it is the key to its greater use, especially in its broadest use, a breakthrough in immunology.

Last night I had a strange dream. I was in my old house with my first wife and we’re having what must’ve been a party, although I’m not so sure that some of the guests were not residents. I was coming under criticism for having spent too much money on preparing Meals on Wheels. How I found myself in this predicament I’ll never know. Among my critics were two attorneys, one, a probate attorney, and the other Robert Mueller. My late, great father was there. He was concerned. But my defense was quite simple, that the meals I prepared for the recipients was lamb.

It seemed to suffice.

Then something very strange happened. The day unexpectedly became night. The moon and the stars came out and the birds went quiet. Somehow I knew that the reason was because there had been a pole shift, the Earth and been turned upside down.

FDA APPROVES HOMEOPATHIC EBOLA CURE REDUX

Friends,

Just a nascent reminder that in the U.S. there appears to be more amazing FDA support for homeopathy statutorily than is commonly thought.

Out of my 150 blogs this has been the most widely read:

PROC BANDI: The Cryptopathology of Donald Trump

I think I forgot it all after she stepped on my toes, and with a belly full of my wine wrapped a huge python snake around my neck like a collar and forcibly kissed me . . a big open mouth kiss, with lots of tongue.

This is a work of fiction. Except for historical and public figures, the resemblance of characters and businesses described here to anyone living or dead is purely coincidental and unintended. It is not to be mistaken for medical advice. If you have a medical condition, seek the advice of a certified professional practitioner.

From the transcribed case files of Dr. Proc Bandi, M.D., MHP (Master Homeopathic Physician)

“I had the privilege once of intimately knowing a clinically diagnosed narcissist when I was working in Virginia City, Nevada back in 2001. A Washoe Zephyr was beating up the Comstock when she phoned one night looking to do a story on me for the local newspaper. I had every reason to say yes, so she invited me over to her house for an interview and asked if I would bring a bottle of wine . . to her home . . down the road . . in Silver City. A Zephyr is not a steady wind, the violent smacking it was giving my car already had me spooked enough for what was turning into a not so steady episode in my life. Her modern ranch style house dead ended a blackout rambling dirt road on the side of a blind cliff. The door was answered by a frowsey looking blonde who invited me into what was looking like an office. On a shelf to my left was what looked like the skull of a Cayman . . or a baby crocodile . . and my thoughts of typology immediately went to Lachesis, the homeopathic snake remedy. I don’t remember too much of the evening, none of the usual amenities. I think I forgot it all after she stepped on my toes, and with a belly full of my wine wrapped a huge python snake around my neck like a collar and forcibly kissed me . . a big open mouth kiss, with lots of tongue. As fond as I am of fiction, I tell no lies . . it could’ve been a boa, but the rest is as true as my recollection can make it for bona fides in the matter of narcissism. I know she was a narcissist because she later told me she was clinically diagnosed as such by a seemingly real doctor. You may think that the use of a constrictor for forcible osculation was confirmation of a brilliant call of the homeopathic remedy made from snake venom for a sexually tortured woman posing as a journalist, but it wasn’t so. As it turned out, she wasn’t a Lachesis at all, her constitutional remedy typology was Platina, same as high school mass murderers and the President of the United States, the homeopathic remedy for narcissism.”

[N.B. A narcissist is someone defined by their unusual self centeredness and self interest, grandiosity, lack of empathy and manipulativeness, and people love them for it, it is the consumate style of self confidence. The homeopathic treatment of narcissism typically is Platina metallicum: Ionized platinum in solution. Platina, semiologically speaking of character type, is denoted by alienation, a disproportionate view of things around him, proclivity to terminate others, the desire to kill, lack of guilty conscience, view of others as little and inconsequential, erotomania, sexual perversion. Clarke says, “One characteristic symptom, either when found alone or in association with other conditions, has led to many cures with Plat.─Lost sense of proportion in both ocular and mental vision. Objects look small or the patient thinks them small. This becomes pride and hauteur in the mental sphere; the patient (generally a woman) looks down on everything and everybody. This is a keynote of Platina]

Proc Bandi: “The visual tipoff to a Platina is a tilted back head, literally looking down their noses at everyone and this is a common posture for Donald Trump. It fits my own experience that Platinas have been described as super-sexy Lycopodiums. suggesting that beneath the hard exoskeletal shell of a Platina lies the fearfulness of a Lycopodium, perhaps the next remedy after giving Platina. The functional use of platinum in modern industry I’ll venture to say is the same as that in politics, as a catalyst. Like other substances in the homeopathic pharmacopeia, its properties are anthropomorphic, meaning that people affected by this remedy share its qualities, dense, malleable, ductile, and highly unreactive. It is a silverish-white transition metal, one of the rarer elements in Earth’s crust. Transition metals and their compounds are known for their catalytic activity. It may be argumentative that Trump is dense, malleable, ductile, and highly unreactive, but I would proposition that outwardly he is, that is to say that it is an exoskeletal shell whether for the good or bad has had a catalytic effect on those around him, and in Trump’s case this would be the entire world in transition, ruled by an openly Machiavellian character. –The Silver city woman was suffering from hepatitis, so I prefaced a course of Lycopodium with a dose of Platina 10M which, with orthomolecular supplementation, cured her of her liver problems.

[N.B. The fundamental basis of Machiavellianism is that a ruler is not bound by traditional ethical norms]

PROVING THE EBOLA CURE

INT’L ORG SENDS LIBERIA 1st H-PATHIC DRUGS

I have long been an ardent believer in the Science of Homeopathy and I fell happy that it has got now a greater hold in India than even in the land of its origin. It is not merely a collection of a few medicines but a real science with a rational philosophy as its base. We require more scientific interest and inquiry into the matter with special stress upon the Indian environment.” Rabindranath Tagore Nobel Prize laureate in Literature 1913. from A.K. Bagchi’s “Rabindranath Tagore and His Medical World.” [Nancy Malik]

The first point of the initial column here about FDA approval of homeopathic drugs in the viral blog entitled FDA APPROVES HOMEOPATHIC EBOLA CURE, was that these isotopic materials, technically misnomered as “homeopathic,” are what appear to be to everyone’s growing surprise and disbelief, historically effective in the legal treatment of hemorrhagic fevers like Ebola.

It could be said that it’s all a matter of opinion on how you reach the word “approve.” And seeing I have a right to my opinion, I’d go so far to wager that this is the first time most have ever looked at the US statute governing the use of homeopathic drugs, or at least openly discussed it or at least thought about what the actual legal status of it is.

Homeopathic drugs have been characterized (most vehemently) by magician James Randi and those who follow him as “fraud”, so it must come as a shock to people living under such misconceptions to learn that these drugs are actually sanctioned by the FDA.

The Act explicitly says homeopathic remedies are DRUGS “regulated and protected under Sections 201(g) and 201(j) of the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetics Act of 1938.”

Protected! Homeopathic drugs are listed in an official compendium of the US, called the Homeopathic Pharamcopoeia of the United States (HPUS http://hpus.com).

Look up the meaning of approve  Webster says approve means “to sanction; consent to; confirm.” (Webster). And this is exactly what the US government, specifically Congress, through the FDA and HPUS, has done for homeopathy. It has consented to, confirmed and sanctioned the use of homeopathic drugs through a statute of law, ruled by an act of Congress!

This may make everyone a little nervous, but MY USE OF THESE MATERIALS IS SANCTIONED BY LAW. I have a right to use them without being harassed, civilly or criminally. As US citizens we are APPROVED to use them for any condition noted in the FDA specified literature (Clarke).

YES WE CAN

Once the quibbling dies down over FDA approval, the next question is, do we have any verifiable cases of homeopathy curing viral hemorhagic fevers like Ebola? The answer is, yes, of course we do. We were curing people of hemorrhagic fevers using the isotopes of various snake venoms, back when virus meant “venom,” virus being the Latin for snake venom, the most noted one being the Crotalus horridus “virus” annotated as Crot-h.

Pardon me whilst I cut through a lot of nonsense: Unlike patent medicines which are designed for a particular theoretical effect on a particular disease, homeopathic medicines are usually chosen for their noted effects in addressing a constellation of symptoms associated in an individual.

At the University of Texas’ MD Anderson cancer clinic in Houston, similar dynamic extrusions have also caused cancer cell apoptosis in vitro and worked their magic on curing specific inoperable diseases . . such as brain gliomas! [Ruta 6]

So on one side of the equation we have a stage magician dangling a million dollar challenge for proof of homeopathy, which he cries is fraud, and on the other, medical doctors at the nation’s leading cancer clinic, using these nominally accused materials to cure brain cancer . . and an opportunity to prove homeopathy again on what is currently the world’s most notorious epidemic.

Athough let me add something here . . the study of epidemiology is the study of oncology, and you will not know the significance of this unless you make note of what you just read.

Don’t get lost in the dust stirred up by skepticism, strange concepts and word meanings. Don’t get side tracked. The Ebola scare is a hoax. It can be easily diagnosed, cured, mitigated and treated, and it can be prevented using FDA approved homeopathic medicines, some of which are available at any good pharmacy. A shipment of homeopathic remedies has already been sent to Liberia through the International Emergency Management Organization (IEMO) in Rome. [More ]

But the medical industrial complex wants you to think you’re helpless without them inventing something new for what they want you to think is something novel, a new disease that they identify using expensive, complex instrumentation, when the fact of the matter is, and this will come as a shock to many and provoke more disbelief and fury in others, that anyone can cure “Ebola” using .25 worth of OTC medicine such as Crot-h., administered orally.

TRANSMITTING THE EBOLA VACCINE AND CURE

Crot-h, detailed in FDA APPROVES HOMEOPATHIC EBOLA CURE, isn’t the only homeopathic remedy that can treat, prevent and cure Ebola, so let’s put homeopathy to the test on Ebola. Let’s take the opportunity to take homeopathic help to people struggling with the disease Ebola in Liberia and document the results.

I am so confident in the efficacy of this medicine that I would be willing to go to Liberia to administer it myself, if I had some assistance, and of course the approval of the authorities involved to get there and remain long enough to set up dispensaries. But I don’t think I’m a necessary part of the occasion. The main problem is getting the afflicted the medicine, which could be dispensed by any responsible person.

So my question is, how do we get homeopathic treatment into the hands of those who are infected or threatened by Ebola? To start with, who can help? In addition to the IEMO I have found a relief organization with a clinic in Liberia and have talked to the director about adding materials to a shipment out of Germany.

I call upon all homeopaths and anyone with charity in his or her heart to work on getting homeopathic treatment to sufferers of Ebola. Who has been diagnosed with Ebola? Who knows someone in Liberia?

Can you help? If you can, you are welcome to call or write:

ALL VACCINATIONS HOMEOPATHIC

UPDATED December 18th, 2017

All vaccines are homeopathic. The small pox vaccine was the greatest medical achievement of all time. In the midst of modern commercialized medicine’s atrocities, it is highly significant, if not profound, to find a beacon, that Jenner’s discovery was Hahnemann’s proof, and that the greatest medical achievement of all time is homeopathy.

All curative medicine and effective disease prophylaxis is homeopathic. Homeopathy employs the magnetic principle of like repels like and the chemical principle of solvents, like dissolves like.

All vaccinations are homeopathic, and by that it is meant they are prima facie homeopathic, anyone can see it, on its face value, as well as scientifically. The misperception of what homeopathy is has prohibited the further use of it as effective medicine. Homeopathy is effective in more than just its crude use in vaccines and anti-venoms.

This is not just another piece of information, this is a profound revelation, perhaps the most profound of our age, because it foretells the end of disease. The small pox vaccine is regarded as the greatest medical achievement of our age, and so to say that it is homeopathic is a stunning piece of news.

HOMEOPATHY UNDER ATTACK IN AUSTRALIA

To understand that all vaccinations are homeopathic is of critical importance to world health. In Australia, opponents of homeopathy are attempting to restrict the public’s access to it and their right to know. This is a threat to freedom of choice, the right to choose what kind of medical treatment a person will have, and freedom of information . . access to medical studies.

Opponents will say that homeopathy is not evidence based medicine, but this is a lie. The evidence for homeopathy was developed by clinicians observing the reactions of countless patients and “provers” to the materials used in homeopathic medicine. There are numerous tests and assays that show the physical structure, chemical properties and biochemical action of homeopathic pharmaceuticals.

Homeopathy is the most evidence based medicine on the planet.

How can anyone make an educated choice if information is being withheld from them? In this case, it’s about the use of homeopathy in disease prophylaxis, for the prevention and treatment of things like whooping cough.

The irony of it is, is that the same people who are telling the public to avoid homeopathy and to get vaccinated are in essence doing nothing more than promoting a crude form of the very thing they’re opposing. Technically, they’re practicing homeopathy. The people who are opposing it are practicing it.

Look at how vaccines are made proof.

Here is Wikipedia’s definition of vaccine: “A vaccine typically contains an agent that resembles a disease-causing microorganism, and is often made from weakened or killed forms of the microbe, its toxins or one of its surface proteins.”

You could say exactly the same thing about homeopathy, and no one, not the people who promote homeopathy nor the people who oppose it could reasonably say you’re wrong. You can simply switch the word “homeopathic remedy” for “vaccine” in the Wikipedia definition and technically you’d still be right in both definitions, because the word homeopathy refers to its first principle, the use of similars to treat, prevent and cure disease.

CHALLENGE

Read the Wikipedia article on homeopathy again and switch the words “homeopathic remedy” for “vaccine” and see how it reads: “A homeopathic remedy typically contains an agent that resembles a disease-causing microorganism, and is often made from weakened or killed forms of the microbe, its toxins or one of its surface proteins.”

There you have it, homeopathic remedies contain an agent that RESEMBLES a disease causing microorganism. That’s the principle of similitude, the study of which is the science of homeopathy.

But it goes further to show that modern vaccines also make use of the second principle of homeopathy, which is attenuation. It says, “it is often made from WEAKENED or KILLED forms of the microbe, its toxins or one of its surface proteins.”

A vaccine is doing exactly the same thing a homeopathic remedy does, eliciting a response from the immune system. That’ what cures you. Not the chemical, but the reaction to one dose of it, which is the third principle of homeopathy, the minimum dose, the highly restrained posology.

YOU’VE BEEN “HOMEOPATHISIZED”!

The problem here with vaccination is that people are using homeopathic procedures and treatment without any understanding of what they are! In 2012 they still haven’t learned the principles and intricacies of similitude and they still haven’t learned how to properly cut the dose, and they still haven‘t learned to apply what they already know is effective in epidemiology to clinical use in idiopathic diseases.

What’s happening in Australia is happening in other parts of the Anglo-American world where they’re trying to prevent whooping cough and other diseases by crude vaccination. They’re attacking a better understanding of the very thing they’re using.

But in other parts of the world, such as in India, Cuba and Brazil, where the public isn’t being duped by advertising for patent drugs, homeopathy is booming.

If physicians are going to administer vaccines, then they will be using a dangerously crude, harmful if not deadly form of homeopathy.

How do they think immunization is conferred? They appear to think it can only be done molecularly, at the condensed phase level, when in fact it is done in the energetic phase, even over the impediment of condensed matter, with or without the seminal molecule, but exponentially more effective in the energetic plasma phase as an ionized pharmaceutical, processed in the homeopathic method of hydrolytically stripping it of its molecular cloak and anchor.

This is the true pharmacology of verum, real medicine.

To do their jobs physicians must  study it, learn it and know it. They have to practice it clinically under teachers who are experienced in its use. They must go to school and learn it. They must learn it at medical schools that teach it.

The Case Against the Case Against Homeopathy

Have you read the previous blog? I hope so, it might give you a better context into which to put . .

The Case Against the Case Against Homeopathy

SHOUT OUT to homeopaths in the home of Hahnemann, Germany; and homeopaths all over the world, in Ireland; Austria; Pakistan; Chile; Poland, Canada; Australia; India; the Netherlands; Croatia; Argentina; Iceland; Togo; the home of Clarke, the United Kingdom; and the home of Kent, the US of A, all who have been reading this column. Thanks for your support . . theoretically

You can stop reading now: THERE IS NO CASE AGAINST HOMEOPATHY.

There never has been and there never will be.

The rest of this blog is entertaiment of the type you’d find on a Roman holiday.

THE PROBLEM WITH theoretical reasoning, it always falls and fails under the grinding wheel of everyday use, and should it ever be hauled into the assizes, there’s always a jury: Half who knows somebody who has tried homeopathy  . .  and swears by it . . and half who knows somebody who hasn’t . . and swears at it.

Homeopathy isn’t easy to explain to people who aren’t familiar with it, and even harder to explain to people who are . . or think they are. Bu then again nobody has really been able to explain gravity very well, either. Those who have tried it swear it’s for real, but like homeopathy, try to explain it to someone who isn’t familiar with it’s effects and you may get a puzzled look, and hear them say they’d rather stick with levity.

And just because we can’t explain how something works doesn’t stop us from using it if we know it does. Thank God we don’t have 13th century scientists following us around in pushcarts telling us we can’t listen to our radios or watch our TVs, use our toasters or launch our pets and heroes into outer space, because they “don’t know how it works, it’s too implausible . . its the work of the devil!

OR PLACEBOS . .

And presumably, to them, neither do we know how all these rather obtuse things work, because our explanation for how they do won’t suffice for the zeusophobe who has already decided it’s psychogenic, i.e. the operator is responsible, possessed by the Devil, or in 21st century terms, in the mad thrall of a placebo.

Though they’ll never admit it, the sad fact is there are a number of things that don’t make sense, even to the most gifted atheist or prize winning scientist, things such as ontology, the study of Being, or why it is that hasn’t crushed by its own weight yet?

The rest of us lamebrains are compelled to ask, why must Atheists and Intelligent Design authors fight? Why must Creationists and Evolutionists quarrel like dogs over what is Holy to them? What is there in Bible ink that doesn’t jibe with chalk dust?

In the sage words of Rodney King after his Hyundai was pulled over for breaking a hundred MPH downtown (and he was truncheoned into a flapjack) “why can’t we all just get along?”

Exactly . . although maybe not going as fast as Romney, but who’s to criticize another man’s direction? I don’t hear our Australian jurists trying to kick that one out of bed.

This digresses down to demands for minute details as examples, like the contradicting figures “scientists” give us for the size and age of the observable Universe, a 48 billion or so light year radius mistake that made it to that size in only 13.7 billion light years. Talk about speeding, even Rodney King couldn’t explain that one.

Oh, they will surely cough up some hairball explanation for it, to be sure, mumble something about an “expanding Universe,” but common sense impounds us not to make it worse with a dumb excuse like that one, just take Rodney’s advice and STFU the next time you break the light speed barrier, talk to my hand, call my attorney, get a job.

Confused? Well let me put it this way. Why is it that the objects most distant from the eye, those galaxies, quasars and nebulae, look about the same age as those much closer . . ? Shouldn’t they all be proto galaxies, quasars and nebulae?

These calculating minds, such as the one that prepares bulls against homeopathy in Australia, and the one that touts it in the UK Guardian, should be able to explain to us why it is that telescopes can view perfectly modern galacti well beyond what should be the limits of astronomical observations, the radius of 13.7 billion light years . . i.e. 6.85, an eight of what all these logically attuned, homeopathy-hating astromoners claim it to be.

I SUGGEST TO YOU THIS is why junior James Randi Educational Foundation (JREF) astronomer and homeopathy-hater Neil deGrasse Tyson is in a state of perpetual hyperventilation; why JREF astronomer and homeopathy-hater Phil Plaitt runs away from cameras held by believers; and why JREF eponym James Randi has to play three card Monte with the code to the double blind for every homeopathy biochemical lab test he witnesses.

 Well, pshaw you say, what about shooting all the homeopaths? What do the sunspots on Arcturus have to do with that, that’s why we’re here isn’t it?

Well, I say, I may seem to be rambling because I can’t see my prepared notes due to the blindfold, and I haven’t finished my cigarette yet, and I thought that besides supper the condemned gets a few last words in edgewise, you see, and I find it fascinating, if not celestially funny, that the spoken size of the Universe, in total, matches Avogadro’s number, 10 to the 23rd, the point in serial dilution, when it so happens, by some wild coincidence, the homeopathic remedy ascends from the material to etheric, where the van der waal forces take over in structure from what was formerly the domain of heterogeneous molecular composition, and not one, not one in a Godzillion of the intended molecule is left in solution, when it goes from dumb science into the spiritual dimension.

But wait!

This can also be put into the atheist’s dimension of astronomical and homeopathic wonders by saying that what we see, (although it may look like a lot) is hardly worth mentioning. In fact, like they say of the high dilute, it‘s nothing at all. The theoretical size of the unseen Universe, that which is beyond myopia, is estimated (without any intended regard to homeopathy) to be 10-23rd power times larger than the observable Universe.

By material standards, in our observable Universe, we are real enough, but in our theoretical one we are nothing at all.

Same as the case against homeopathy.

Million Dollar Challenge Revisited

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

Posted on Plaitt’s blog.

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.
