I never even remotely bought into the 2012 BS and similar and consider myself "rational" and "reasonable", however still disagree with the common
message in your OP.
There is NOTHING wrong with being spiritual or having a belief. There is not even anything wrong if someone would choose to believe in a creator.
Having some sort of spiritual belief does NOT automatically mean stupidity or ignorance.
This is what actually irks me: While there are MANY "new agers" which are (I simply have to say it out loud) ignorant, uneducated and stupid - there
are also "new agers" who are smart.
Not EVERY new ager and spiritual inclined person believes in a 2012 apocalypse or ascension. Not EVERYONE is stupid.
Your argument that "reason is everything" is too simple. The world, our mind, everything is simply to complex. Quantum physics even "kind of" proves
there is more than what meets the eye.
All I want to make clear is PLEASE not see any new-ager or "mystical thinker" as an idiot, because many are not. You cannot put all of them into one
pot and assume that any new-ager and anyone who has some sort of spiritual belief is an idiot.
For myself, 2012 doomsayers and similar are not really "new agers"..they are just fools or ignorant - but that doesn't mean certain ways of thinking
BEYOND what we assume is "reality" would be "bad".
Do not make the mistake and THINK that because the 2012 fools have been proven wrong (hey, what a big surprise!) so must be any other form of
"alternative thinking". This would be foolish and closed minded.
