I Shot the Homeopath (Satire):

.
CHORUS
I shot the homeopath,
But I swear it was his simillimum[1].
I shot the homeopath,
I first thought she needed Ledum[2].
.
Science has yet to see 'beyond placebo effect'[2a],
Water's memory just make their nipples erect[2b].
'Purposeful life spirit' is a necessary belief[3],
Kent followed Hahnemann, homeo.'s founder and chief.
.
The AANP says the nonscientific is science[4],
Sounds me like humongous pseudoscience[4][5].
Their like cures like is not even true,
If you go to one they're going to mindfuck you[6].
.
So, I shot the homeopath,
But I swear it was his simillimum.
Yes, I shot the homeopath,
Now I'm sure she needed Plumbum[7].
.
Aiming to dilute me down...
I had no choice
But to bring the homeopath down[8].
.
The homeo. died in front of me,
The round was a blank...
S/he died homeopathically.
.

[1] Simillimum is Hahnemann's term for the proper 'vital force fixing' remedy. It is also the name of the Homeopathic Academy of Naturopathic Physicians' journal (at http://www.hanp.net/simillimum/about). The HANP grants the AANP homeopathy specialty title DHANP, Diplomate of the Homeopathic Academy of Naturopathic Physicians. The AANP's 'Physician of the Year' 2007 (here, http://www.scnm.edu/breakingNews.php) is Mittman, P. ND DHANP, President and CEO of the AANP school SCNM (see http://www.scnm.edu/college/president.php). His profession of naturopathic homeopathic essential vitalism -- "the healing power of nature [...] the Chinese call it chi, in India they refer to it as prana, the Japanese call it ki. Present when we are born and gone when we die, this animating force exists in every living plant and animal, including humans" -- can be found here http://www.thisibelieve.org/dsp_ShowEssay.php?lastname=mittman&state=AZ&uid=23060&start=0 or here http://www.scnm.edu/retired/natureMed4-08-07.php.

[2] Ledum palustre is a homeopathic remedy that begins with an extract of wild rosemary or marsh tea. Homeopaths, including naturopaths, see it indicated in puncture wounds and TETANUS!
.
[2a.] See Bausell's "Snake Oil Science..." (2007, ISBN 0195313682) wherein the author states: "there is no compelling, credible scientific evidence to suggest that any CAM therapy benefits any medical condition or reduces any medical symptom (pain or otherwise) better than a placebo [p.254]."
.
[2b.] Ontario's Diana, L.M. (ND CCNM) (OAND, CAND) states in "Homeopathy" (see http://markhamnaturalhealthcentre.com/homeopathy.htm): "most homeopathic remedies are so dilute that no molecules of the healing substance remain; however, in homeopathy, it is believed that the substance has left its imprint or 'essence,' which stimulates the body to heal itself (this theory is called the 'memory of water') [...] homeopathy is successful in treating these [per a list] and a variety of other disorders [with the list ended 'and much more'."

[7] Guns, of course, shoot bullets made of lead or lead alloy, leading to puncture wounds, of a kind, though the Latin for lead is plumbum. In homeopathy, medicinal [!] lead is known as Plumbum metallicum.

[8] Homeopathy is the ultimate dilution! As Richard Dawkins says in the recent "Enemies of Reason"(2007) program, in order to find a molecule of the original mother tincture / active ingredient that the homeopathic dilution process started with, you'd have to sift through an amount of water molecules equal to all the atoms in the Solar System! As Dawkins says, "to science, it [homeopathy's claims] just doesn't make sense." Homeopathy is the ultimate delusion.
