← Homeopathy by the (mind-boggling) numbers

I think you're forgetting succussion.

It's even worse than you think - the Wikipedia article you linked states that the dose is "vigorously shaken by ten hard strikes against an elastic body" but negelcts to mention what that "elastic body" is...

I once studied homoeopathy (I know, I know: I was young and only lasted a term) and we were told that when Hahnemann succussed his remedies, he banged them against a leather-bound Bible!

How's that for an elastic body?
