Homeopathy CC Nonsense as a Gateway to Naturopathy ND Nonsense: Northern Virginia Community College and ND Johnson's June Homeopathy Course

here, I cite from an article promoting the community college homeopathy class of an ND:

Nevin Martell reports for expressnightout.com in "Alternate Course: Learning Homeopathy at NVCC" (2011-05-09):

"'a lot of people know the word homeopathy, but they don't know what it is [...] it's based on the principle that like cures like [sympathetic magic!...] that means a homeopath tries to find a substance that produces similar symptoms in a healthy person that are present in a sick person' [which has no scientific support, actually, by the way!...] says Christopher Johnson, ND [SCNM...] who practices at Thrive Naturopathic in Alexandria [...it's a] 200-year-old system of medicine was founded by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann [somehow its antiquity supports it?...] newcomers to this concept can gain a wider understanding of this alternative medicine at Johnson's 'Intro to Homeopathy' class at the Alexandria campus of Northern Virginia Community College [...] 'Intro to Homeopathy' program ($129) starts June 6 and runs from 7 to 9 p.m. Register at Northern Virginia Community College, Alexandria Campus (3001 N. Beauregard St., Alexandria; 703-323-3000, nvcc.edu) [...] Johnson hopes that the class helps participants decide whether they would like to continue on to naturopathic school to get an ND themselves."

Note: naturopathic licensure requires homeopathy on their 'step 2' part, and falsely labels homeopathy "science" -- when it is indeed science-ejected.
