I absolutely hate this practice. The deceit and utter bs of it being my major issues. I guess if these people were still in some way dedicated to the greater good of society it would not have been so bad. But the fact that they live in a state of pretence showing themselves to the world as "intellectual" people with scientific backgrounds really gets me going.

Was just wondering if anyone else have the same pet hate. And would like to talk about it. Not that there is much to say about how crap it is. But I have started an awareness group on FB that is relevant to SA the country that I live in. 

But I really feel that I need to get into the face of the public. Which I suppose is easier said than done.

Thanks, I have and thoroughly enjoy the page as well.
That about sums it up !
No it does not form part of homeopathy, I am not sure homeopathy knows what forms part of homeopathy. So don't worry no one will notice.
What do you call plant based remedies that actually work?

Medicine.
pseudoscience gives real science a bad name.
Scientology too.
Homeopathy is just quack medicine. 150 years ago you at least got morphine in the brew which at least does relieve pain though it is addictive so you need more.
Take a look at this link http://www.ted.com/talks/james_randi.html
It covers various topics but James Randi takes a fatal dose of homeopathic sleeping pills at the start.
I love showing my students this, its a very brief summary of a paper on how to sell a pseudoscience (in which i include homeopathy WHICH I HATE!!!!!)

I do love articles, i haven't managed to make time for investigations in this area yet...
