In reality, they are just con men. A profession that dates back thousands of years.

Kaytagg I starred every single post of yours in this thread. Everything you said impressed me. Demanding experimental evidence is Science in the basic simplest form.
If you do not DEMAND experimental evidence then you are P.T. Barnums favorite type of person born every minute.

Well, lets ask the Scientific method a few questions.
Me: "Hey Science, do you know all there is to know?"
Science: "Science is about discovering new things that we previously did not know, to presume that any level of scientific knowledge is 'All there is' is against the very purpose of science"
Me: "So, it is possible then that there are forces that science does not know about?"
Science: "Of course, after all, the force of electricity was not always known about, nor was gravity."
Me: "So it is possible that 'Chi' is a real force?"
Science: "Of course it is possible, science does not tell us what reality is, science tells us what we observe about reality is."
Me: "So, science is not all knowing?"
Science: "Science is no more all knowing than humans are."
Me: "Thank you science"
Science: "You are welcome."
