From PZ I learned about a new movie called The Moses Code – apparently it is the next stage after What The Bleep Do We Know and The Secret. I know, I know, you didn’t realize we needed a next step after those two wonderful pieces of
science and inspiration drek. Didn’t they already cover everything we need to know about life the universe and everything? I guess not, because the Moses Code book is billed “The Most Powerful Manifestation Tool in the History of the World”. Note: in the history of the whole world! Wow! And they left this out of The Secret? No fair!
The list of featured speakers include some names I recognized, although not in a good way:
Dr. Michael Beckwith
Founder and Director Agape Spiritual Center, Minister, Speaker
One of the dopes featured in The Secret – although there he was billed as a (and I quote) “Visionary”. So no false modesty there. Although I did wonder about him being billed here as “Speaker”. What kind of title is that? Aren’t they all “speakers” by definition?
James Van Praagh
Medium, Author, Executive Producer “Ghost Whisperer”
They’ve got James Van Praagh in this movie and they think this is a good thing.
Best-selling Author, Scientist
Haaaaaaa hahaha – “Scientist”? No, pseudoscientist and manipulator of the truth extraordinaire. Maker-up of bullshit while pretending it’s science. A real clown. Although I agree his books do seem to sell well to the credulous.
Dr. Joe Dispenza
Neurological Doctor, Author
Actually a chiropractor. I guess “Neurological Doctor” sounds better than “pseudoscientific back-cracker”. He appeared in "What The Bleep" where he pretended he literally creates his day with his mind. I guess if he does that it's only a small additional step to pretend he's a doctor.
Yeah, this film promises to be a real gem.
