In a Seinfeld episode, George says to Jerry, "Remember, it isn't a lie if you believe it." And to me, that's what is at the heart of biodynamics. Do some of the practices offer real alternatives to chemical options? Ok, that's fine. But the entire alignment-of-the-body-with-the-planets stuff - where's the science to support it? And if it's not verifiable, then why is it tolerated? While I appreciate the whole John Stewart Mills approach of if-it-does-no-harm-to-others-then-allow-the -behavior, if junk science isn't confronted, it misleads others, holds back the search for scientific truth. Believing in biodynamics for the sake of believing doesn't make it true, and doesn't save it from being a lie.
