as for what makes me say its a bunch of crap its that hippies and new agers arent very creadible look at their history since the 60s there actions speak for themselves and tinkleflower i know your not a hippie supporter your just being inquistive and asking questions to fill up forums.
tinkleflower this is not the first time youve asked me to be more specific on my point of view or my assumption.

probably do fall into several new age, or hippy categories. I make no apologies for that; it's just who I am. I've read, or experienced, myriad different "alternate" lifestyle flavours; some aspects I kept with me, and some I discarded (just as any discerning student should!).Which actions are speaking from themselves? And can we not ignore the other "subgroups" of society who've also had substance abuse issues? (in other words - virtually every subgroup. Hippies/new-agers are not alone in this problem...it's a human problem, not a hippy problem).

Tinkleflower, have you read the book? I am 99% sure you have not, and therefore your conclusion that its wrong is meaningless. I lived there, there is a large Satan worshipping community, to this day. The things she said happened when she was five were corroborated and affadavits sworn to that effect by professionals, a doctor, a dentist, and they found confirmation of a death she witnessed by searching newspaper archives.
That is a lot of substance, saying she didn't really experience what she says she did, with zero study, means zero. imho
I have no doubt that the victim probably believed it herself - but since there appears to be more evidence supporting the "no Satanic abuse" theory than other, I have no option but to assign it as "hoax".
