    Guess how many of those I believe in? 1. It`s physics. Good old physics. That said, once you start getting into stuff like quantum mechanics, that can start sounding like utter bullsh-t too. That or I`m just not smart enough to understand it.

    I was pretty sure Ayurvedic medicine is older than chiropractics...

    Anyway, yeah, chiropractics works. Shiatsu works.

    Some things in "parapsychology" are real, but that`s because they aren`t actually parapsychology, and are just put there because no one has a full explanation of how it works.

    While a valiant effort, I can`t consider this chart valid if it excludes the trilateralists or moreover the trilateralist commission. Although it could be argued under "new world order" perhaps, but it should still be included.

    "Why isn`t atheism in the "hoaxes, frauds and denials" section?"

    Because Atheism isn`t a denial, it`s a realization, the opposite. People were not taught atheism, it just came naturally to the reasonable.

    Yeah the uh dowsing thing there actually functions, sounds utterly retarded yes, but for whatever reason it is really helpful locating underground water lines such as irrigation and we actually use it at work. I should qualify this by pointing out that we use two thin metal wire rods bent into a n L shape and held loosely with the long "Leg" pointing outward and slightly down ward rather than a traditional dowsing twig.

    Given that this is indeed a table of bullsh*t quackery, one good thing that can be said for most of the items here is that it`s a good thing that at least a few people believe in them. Otherwise, we`d have no point of view to argue other than our own.

    Huh? What about coming back to life as a frog, followed eventually by eternal bliss in Nirvana?

    Anyway, I have to wonder about automatic writing. I mean, compare the lyrics from Stairway to Heaven to every other Led Zeppelin song and you`ll realize there`s no way Robert Plant could have written that on his own.

    Um...Ayurvedic medicine is not new age. It`s been around for thousands of years. And while some if it is quackery, much of it is not. At its foundation is the idea that the food you eat on a daily basis has a bigger impact on your health than anything else, and that physicians should help patients understand how to support health in their daily lives and only use medicines when patients get sick- something Western doctors could stand to focus much more of their attention on.

    Ear candles supposedly suck out ear wax, but really they just burn some paper stuck in your ear.

    "Not all religious people are nuts"
    That`s right! They`re not! Just because they believe in something doesn`t mean that they`re crazy. When you think about it, existence shouldn`t exist. From what we know there has been no start and can be no end.

    So when every thing is that insane then how crazy are a few people who believe that a higher power created us?

    DavioMagnifi - I`m with you on chiropractic...but there is hardly a person in the western world these days who wouldn`t take issue with at least some part of this table.

    Good for a laugh, though.

    It is evident by the items listed on the credulous block of this table that the creator hasn`t taken nearly enough mind altering drugs.

    I took a class in college called "Pseudoscience" that was taught by a physics professor. He was an awesome guy in his 80`s with a ponytail and a sweet beard. It covered pretty much this entire periodic table and debunked them all. It was my favorite class.

    I find the religion section a little discriminatory... Most majority religions are not problematic; it`s fanatics and radicals.
