Do the people that support homeopathy accept that the procedures adopted by 'witch doctors' in Africa and their equivalents in other societies also work? It seems to me that the evidence used to support homeopathy differs in NO WAY from that used to support examining the entrails of chicken, casting runes or whatever. Or are these procedures different because they are used only in 'primative societies' while we are 'developed', 'advanced' or whatever? An answer would be most appreciated.
