Comment Re:First AGW, Now Homeopathy (Score 1) 507

For better or worse, the British welfare state tends to splash the cash about until it can find a reason not to do so.

Logically speaking, homeopathy can't work - I'd agree with that. But then again, logically Plato was right.. the difference is that knowledge (quantum mechanics, general relativity, the standard model) has moved on since Plato's time. The studies into homeopathy have now been done, the results have been analysed and the report presented to parliament following due process (yes, the Brits like their bureaucracy too).

I take two important messages from your statement:
1) the difference in approach - fund first, ask questions later
2) how long has it taken to get through the process? Does anyone know about proper scientific study into homeopathy and when it dates from?
