I created this blog to offer an alternative view to Biodynamics and to engage the Biodynamic community in debate over the merits and efficacy of Biodynamic farming. I challenge any Biodynamic farmer or supporter to defend the writings of Rudolf Steiner. I submit that if you believe in science you cannot believe in Biodynamics, and the corollary is just as true, if you believe in Biodynamics you cannot believe in science. As you can tell by the title I believe that Biodynamics is a hoax and deserves the same level of respect the scientific community has for witchcraft, voodoo and astrology.
Unfortunately, regarding a debate there cannot be a rational one. On one side is spirituality. On the other science. When someone believes the horn of a steer confers a magic and unknown power to animal excrement which can be transferred to a plant or that there is a magic, unknown property in bacteria-made ammonia that makes the nitrogen-hydrogen bonds in it different than those in man-made ammonia, there’s not much point in arguing.
