BTW, if my calculations are correct 30C is one part daisy in 10^{60} parts water or 1:1000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 000000000000000000 Yup, your calculations are impeccable, as is the number of zeroes. This dilution is below

Avogadro’s Limit by a factor of 10

^{36}, which in turn means (and I won’t bore you with the details of the calculation) that the statistical probability of finding just one or more particles of the

*Bellis Perenis* extract in one litre of homoeopathic dilution is roughly 1 in 30,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000, or about the same as throwing 45 consecutive sixes with a fair die.

It is also interesting to note that current estimates for the number of protons in the universe are around 10

^{80} and a molecule of H

_{2}O has ten protons, which affords a different view of the quoted dilution. If all the matter in the universe was water, there would be about 10

^{79} H

_{2}O molecules into which 10

^{19} particles of

*Bellis Perenis* extract are mixed. But 10

^{19} molecules of water corresponds to about 0.3 microlitres of water, or about 1/17,000

^{th} of a teaspoon. So in effect we have about 1/17,000

^{th} of a teaspoon of ingredient diluted in a universe of water.

All of which illustrations will likely not do a single thing to disabuse proponents of homoeopathy of their silliness.
