Okay. So. I'm currently in my Anthropology of Religion class. The teacher (someone who I'm convinced was an acid-dropping hippy when she was younger... she's rather... erm... "ethereal") brought her Yoga instructors to talk to the class.
First, they talk about spiritual nonsense as if it's fact: "we all know that humans are just spirits experiencing the human condition" and "we know that there are higher realms of understandings". This stuff was proven? Did I miss a memo? Is there a peer-reviewed article on it?
Then they call Yoga a science. I'm sorry, but how has Yoga answered any questions about the nature of reality?
Now they're talking about "om" (or "aum"). Yes, the "om" of what I thought was a goofy satirical stereotype of Buddhist monks. They said "science has proven that everything resonates to the sound of 'om'."
What? Anyone got anything on this? I'm confused...
All of this is proven scientifically? Really? Boy do I wish a physicist was here right now... how great it would be if Professor Stephen Hawking himself were in here right now... *sigh*
