Great blog. Found out about it from reading James Randi's piece on that Ramtha infomercial . . .

"(As an aside, why is it pronounced “chi” but written as “qi”? Surely the Chinese wrote in Chinese characters so why can’t we just write “chi”? Oh never mind.)"

Because the Mandarin language was simplified under Communist rule. Both are correct, although "qi" is the official Pinyin transliteration of the syllable and "chi" may be confused with the Greek letter.

That's why most recent woo-woo works spell it "qi".
