Default New age critisizm


Some, including neo-pagans and particularly reconstructionist groups, who are frequently labeled as New Age, often find the term inappropriate since it appears to link them with beliefs and practices they do not espouse. Others think that the classification of beliefs and movements under New Age has little added value due to the vagueness of the term. Instead, they prefer to refer directly to the individual beliefs and movements. Indeed, use by religious conservatives, scientists and others has caused the term "New Age" to sometimes have a derogatory connotation.

Many adherents of traditional disciplines from cultures such as India, China, and elsewhere; a number of orthodox schools of Yoga, Tantra, Qigong, Chinese Medicine, Ayurveda, and martial arts (the traditional Taijiquan families, for example), groups with histories reaching back many centuries in some cases, eschew the Western label New Age, seeing the movement it represents as either not fully understanding or deliberately trivializing their disciplines or out right distortions.

Much of the strongest criticism of New Age eclecticism has come from American Indian writers and communities. The Declaration of War Against Exploiters of Lakota Spirituality is one of the strongest statements of disapprobrium from traditional tribal religious leaders. Other Natives who have issued statements against "white shamanism" include Wendy Rose, Leslie Marmon Silko and Geary Hobson. A dominant Native American argument is that New Age shamans profit from tribal beliefs in a way that is fundamentally inconsistent with indigenous peoples' worldviews, while ignoring the communal aspects of indigenous peoples sacred beliefs and practices, such as among the Urarina of the Peruvian Amazon. In the US, part of the criticism leveled at the New Age movement has also been the perpetuation of Native racial stereotyping ("The Hollywood Indian"), cultural fetishism and the distortions of historic and anthropological insights into Native Americans' multiple and diverse ways of life and spirituality. This is abundantly clear when one contrasts the customary practice of ayahuasca shamanism among the Urarina, with New Age shamanism.

Some critics of New Age also say that a true understanding of reason and empiricism produces just as rich an experience as the New Agers claim for themselves, but with emotions and feelings based on thinking and logic instead of the other way around. They also point out that the definition of empiricism is: "the view that experience, especially of the senses, is the only source of knowledge."

Strong criticism of new age beliefs comes from adherents of scientific skepticism. Adherents of scientific skepticism hold that one should question the veracity of claims, especially paranormal or extraordinary claims, unless such claims can be empirically tested. As science has been unable to find strong evidence of any paranormal activity, or to find ground for new-age beliefs, scientists sometimes take offense at the use of scientific terminology to promote what are considered unprovable religious beliefs.

NAM = NWO, simple as that.

The New Age Movement is just the grab bag of any Old (and new) LIES, sold as answers to those seeking understanding, and being such a huge mess of a bag, those who fall in find it hard to climb back out.

A long and detailed thread on the NAM and lots of evidence of it's promotion as a NWO Tool, here;

What is New Age Bullshit?

What is Old Age Bullshit?

Well, what religion is 'right'? In a way I think none and I think all. Is that a paradox? Not at all.
Religions perceived by people will be people’s perception of religions. The true, core message of religions points to the same truth – but its word cannot be processed accurately by our complicating, entangled and partially insane minds. Virtually all religions have been changed in order to accommodate this confusion. The nature of the modern human is to take shortcuts and make comforting adjustments regardless of the consequences. How long have we been modern humans for? We have been modern humans for a very long time.

Well, yet another forum where folk don't care to read what they're responding to, too busy pushing the Satanic, NWO agenda items.

The thread of that link is long and very detailed, but overall makes very clear that all religions that deny Death came into the world (all things are dead or dying, as science proves)and that no one or thing can "save" us untill that 'infection' of death is removed, are built on sandy, Anti-Christ foundations or direct Satanic deceptions.

It also makes clear the insanity of trying to find enlightenment in scraps of ideas from long dead civilisations.

The Bible is always contempory to those who ask and search with their whole hearts and minds, as it is our Creators Living Word, that refers all it teaches, to what IS (and tells us to test and prove all things)in this world we're trying to survive, not be deceived by man's vain "imaginings" and philosophies.
