Drawn on the author's own experience of practicing and teaching energy work, being totally indoctrinated into it and in other non-evidence-based practices, and finally, the Reformation...a rude awakening of "this simply is not true." There are, of course, things in the universe that haven't yet been explained, but when something has been explained and is simply supernatural, we ought to pay attention to that. People of course have the right to spend their time and money on anything they choose to, including faith healing--which should be honestly represented as faith healing, but usually isn't.
