Huh? What do you mean, explain acupuncture? It's where you poke needles into people, and it is claimed to relieve various maladies. What of it?

Its scientifically proven to work. AND, it was developed completely without science.

Well, I suppose while it was discovered and developed without knowledge and adherence to the Scientific Method (TM) as practiced today, the same could be said about metalworking, cooking, agriculture, animal husbandry...

Clever readers with the ability to grasp concepts and apply them to analogous situations will see that I have given you everything you need to reconcile acupuncture with science.

Still, I must account for less than clever readers, so I will consider adding acupuncture.
