Haha, good one.

Homeopaths discovered evolution. :crazy:

As for some of the other slightly less outrageous claims in the list it's interesting that it claims having an advocate favour things like sanitation before they were widely implemented is supposed to give some sort of credibility to the claims of modern day homeopaths.

It's elementarily obvious that people advocated sanitation prior to it's widespread usage. The claim is meaningless, homeopaths weren't "first" to advocate sanitation, which had in fact been around in various forms for thousands of years prior to it's widespread modern day usage.

Dr. Hahnemann was the first man in history to think of testing medicines on healthy subjects to assertain their effects before administering them to the sick. His work was a precursor to the RDBPCT's of today. Homeopathy has its own clinical trials - they are called Provings. They are of far more value, and a great deal more scientific, than any Randomised Double Blind Placebo Controlled Trial.
