Yet the science suggests otherwise .
It's gone way over his head, seriously.
How do you know ?

Water memory is the purported ability of water to retain a memory of substances previously dissolved in it even after an arbitrary number of serial dilutions. It has been claimed to be a mechanism by which homeopathic remedies work, even when they are diluted to the point that no molecule of the original substance remains.
Water memory defies conventional scientific understanding of physical chemistry knowledge and is generally not accepted by the scientific community. In 1988, Jacques Benveniste published a study supporting a water memory effect amid controversy in Nature, accompanied by an editorial by Nature's editor John Maddox urging readers to "suspend judgement" until the results can be replicated. In the years following publication, multiple supervised experiments were run by Benveniste's team, the United States Department of Defense, BBC's Horizon programme, and other researchers, but no team has ever reproduced Benveniste's results in controlled conditions.
32yrs later .....we know much , much , much more .
reference? or talking out of your arse again?
So, presumably, you have links to experiments that have replicated his work?
Better than you talking out of your head apparently .
I do , but I'm not going to give them to you . Do your own research . Figure it out , for yourself .

In other words you actually don't.
You're the one that made the claim, it is, therefore, up to you to support it.
Since you won't (or can't) we can safely ignore the claim.
You think ?
The claim is safe .
So we'll ignore that too.
Since you are devoid of any evidence as per all your crazy claims, here is an up to date paper........
The Controversy Over the “Memory of Water”
For a very long time, the idea of the “memory of water” tantalized not only the homeopathic community, but
also serious scientists and researchers like Luc Antoine Montagnier, a recipient of the Nobel Prize.
This misconception originated from an experiment conducted by the famous allergologist, Dr. Jacques Benveniste.
He claimed to have shown in an in vitro experiment that highly dilute potencies of bee poison (apis melliﬁ-
ca), even beyond the Avogadro number, are capable of producing structural changes in living organisms in the
same way that the real poison from the bee can bring these changes about, being the actual degranulation of
basophils. His paper was published in Nature under an obligation to prove his ﬁndings in front of a scientiﬁc
committee in his own laboratory. Benveniste could not reproduce the results that his team was claiming.
When a similar experiment was repeated by a diﬀerent group of scientists and ﬁlmed by the BBC, it also failed.
While it was obvious that the experiment was proved to be false, the scientiﬁc community concluded, by an
extension of logic, that since the experiment was false, therefore homeopathy must also be a false system of
Despite the fact that the experiment was repeatedly invalidated, some scientists, especially in the homeopath-
ic community, continued to believe that Benveniste’s ﬁndings were true.
In this way, the scientiﬁc community remains in confusion as to whether: a) water has memory, or b) homeop-
athy is or is not a valid system of therapy.
Since I have been an eye-witness of these events from their very beginnings, I am giving an account of the real
story for both the homeopathic community and the sceptic
