Stomach ulcers where thought to be caused by stress until it was proven wrong. Smoking was good for you until it was proven wrong.
Also it could well be that einstein was wrong, wasn't he in denile about spooky action at a distance?
Homeopathy doesn't work on two levels:
1. Theoretical - As you said yourself, everything we know about water would have to be questioned in order for homeopathy to work. But water is far too ubiquitous. It is used in medicine, physics, chemistry... and no one has ever run into anything that would contradict what we know about water. It always does exactly what scientists expect it to do.
2. Practical - Despite contradicting laws of physics, scientists really gave homeopathy a fair shot, despite what you say. A total of 57 systematic reviews, containing the 176 individual studies, focused on 68 different health conditions - and found there to be no evidence homeopathy was more effective than placebo on any.
If it doesn't work in theory and it doesn't work in practice, it's time to accept it doesn't work.
Really, we shouldn't be discussing this anymore than we should discuss if a tonic made of urine sold out of a horse-drawn carriage is going to make your hair grow if you rub it on your head.
There is no such thing as homeopathic suramin,
