'We may have to rewrite physics and chemistry'

Rewrite physics and chemistry? Why? Because of an observation at the seething edge of a black hole? A mysterious flow of dark matter millions of light years across? Nope. It's because the effects of homeopathy can not be ruled out, says one homeopath super-skeptic scientist. (New Scientist)

Queens University Pharmacologist Madeleine Ennis, in an effort to debunk homeopathy (you know, using snake venom and tree bark to heal runny noses and pimples), found that "an effect cannot be ruled out" after numerous tests. But she doesn't have to like it (neither does Pound360, for the record). "We are unable to explain our findings… we may have to rewrite physics and chemistry."

I started pound360 to channel my obsession with vitamins, running and the five senses. Eventually, I got bored focusing on all that stuff, so I came back from a one month hiatus in May of 2007 (one year after launching Pound360) and broadened my mumblings here to include all science.
