I'll go with "Crock of ****" for one thousand Alex.

Taken directly from wikipedia (not exactly the most reputable source, but I'm tired, so here goes).

Homeopathy attempts to treat the sick with extremely diluted agents that, in undiluted doses, produce similar symptoms in the healthy. However, processes use cause the dose to be exactly zero in most cases: Its adherents and practitioners assert that the therapeutic potency of a remedy can be increased by serial dilution of the drug, combined with succussion, or vigorous shaking. This is, however, not supported by chemistry or physics. Homeopathy regards diseases as morbid derangements of the organism,[4] and states that instances of disease in different people differ fundamentally "

1. Dose to be exactly zero? What are you taking then!?
2. Not supported by chemistry or physics, and uses INTENSE SHAKING to rid you of your disease.

Seems fishy to me. I'm going to toss my lot in with proven chemistry and physics, thanks. Homeopathy can be summed up preciesly by this, in my opinion.

"Heres the history of our medicine.
"I have a sore throat."
2000 BC : "eat this root"
1200 AD : "That root is heathen, say this prayer."
1500 AD : "That prayer is superstition, drink this elixir."
1800 AD : "That elixir is snake oil, Take this pill."
1900 AD : "That pill is ineffective, Take this antibiotic."
2000 AD : "That antibiotic is artificial, Here why dont you eat this root."

A step back in time...
