Homeopathy has not worked in 175 years

As anyone who subscribes to the scientific method knows homeopathy does not work. Interestingly Orac, while cleaning up his attic, discovered:
the oldest double-blind RCT of which I found record was conducted in 1835 in Nuremberg, Bavaria, and subsequently described in an editorial in 2006 entitled “Inventing the randomized double-blind trial: The Nuremberg salt test of 1835.”
It is not just today we have investigated and determined homeopathy is nothing more than wishful-thinking: that debate was settled 175 years ago! That is, to those that have not been infected with the denialist-virus.
