Guruphiliac pal Cosmic Connie writes for the Committee for Skeptical Inquiry about that disc full of half-baked, lame-brained, superstitious claptrap, The Secret:
Although The Secret producers advertised the DVD as revealing the ultimate wisdom of the ages – everything anyone needs to know to put LOA to work – it seems that there are still more “secrets” in the offing. In addition to the new and improved version of the original DVD, an upcoming sequel will take people to “the next level.” Yes, there is always a “next level,” and yet another “next level,” and there always will be until a new “ancient secret” comes along. For now there’s the book, a companion workbook, an audio CD featuring music from the DVD…and on and on.C.C.'s got your number, Byrne & Company. Please click on over to read her excellent analysis and debunking of yet another in that very long line of New Age™ scams which reflect the exceedingly greedy (and still, utterly ignorant) age in which we live today.
