after the sleeping comes the waking up.

Can I have a hit of Saturn, please?

Okay. If you’re reading this, you probably know that homeopathy is a crock of Grade-A crap. But every day I seem to be learning that it’s even crappier than I had imagined.

Take this example: Trituration Proving of the Light of Saturn. An astrologer and homeopath put a bunch of lactose underneath the eyepiece of a telescope she had aimed at Saturn. She then mixed the star-gazing lactose with lactose straight out of the bottle and fed the powder to a bunch of people. Then she took notes about how the lactose-eaters felt and what they talked about.

So, apparently lactose molecules can talk to each other just like water molecules can. I wonder if the butane molecules in a lighter talk to each other and decide whether they’re going to ignite or not?

And, apparently, topics of conversation are “symptoms”. As opposed to just being topics of conversation. What a bunch of morons.

I’ll let these people test their lactose tolerance and go read about the newly-discovered Phoebe ring around Saturn.

Read the “proving”.
