Nature Magazine reports that a French court has thrown out a lawsuit
brought by Jacques Benveniste (of homeopathic fame) against two French
Nobel Prize winners who implied that his work might have been
fraudulent. And he can't refile charges, either. even though it was a
technicality that got the case dismissed. If they did indeed think
that he was a fraud, I disagree. I think he's simply self-deluded and
driven by a huge ego that doesn't allow him to be wring. In my
opinion, he actually believes all that nonsense. Almost impossible to
understand why, but I've seen sillier beliefs expressed by sillier
scientists. Just look at those (admittedly few) scientists who really
believed that Uri Geller had psychic powers!
