Of late, there's been a flood of pseudoscience promoting references (links to videos, articles, sites etc.) on some sites I visit (for other reasons). Among them was a video in which a person called Gregg Braden talks about the "science of miracles" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XfTjlfLGBv0). Trying to find a wikipedia article on this guy, I ended up reading the one on "Consciousness-based healthcare" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Consciousness-based_healthcare). To my astonishment, as I was used to reading balanced and objective articles on Wikipedia, this one sounded like it was almost an advertisement for CBHC! I found that it was written by a guy I remember finding somewhere at some other time supporting fringe theories. Also, the article had hardly been edited by anyone else (with a couple of minor exceptions). I felt I had to alert someone about it, so, for my first time ever on Wiki, I started the article's (non-existent) "talk" page, requesting that the entry be reviewed.
I then googled CBHC, but all I found was favorable comments and reviews. Not a word critiquing it! I read and reread lots of info about CHBC and, unless I have suddenly taken leave of my senses, I kept coming up with the conclusion that it could but be unscientific, as it involves consciousness transferences, connections with indeterminable forces etc., in order to successfully - as claimed - effect miraculous, instantaneous cures of medically untreatable conditions, such as terminal cancers, as well as rapid restorations of disfigurements, etc.!
I felt so alone all through the process, so I thought maybe some of you people can say something on the matter and perhaps help reassure me that I'm not overreacting (not to say losing it...)
I'd appreciate any comments.
Spare the rod and spoil the god!
