GUEST,mack/misophist BS: Science and New Age: Bridging the chasm (141* d) RE: BS: Science and New Age: Bridging the chasm 02 Sep 04

At the risk of showing the same 'cultural insensitivity' as James Randi, I'm bound to comment that the New Age movement is essentially religious in nature - focused on belief and personal perception rather than verifiable results. It's core members do not seem to understand the scientific method or the reason for it's existence.

Rather than start an interminable argument over minutiae, I will just point out that in India and China, seen by many New Agers as the twin fonts of wisdom, those who can afford to use western medicine, not the traditional forms. When results are all that matters, science is the only thing that works consistently.
