Is the new age a scam?

In a discussion about New Age scams, someone asked me, “…how can you tell something is a scam?”

I really don’t know how I could tell… there is my experience with people and who they act, choose to appear (costumes, language used…)…

But take energy healing for example: we have gi gong which dates back @ 2500 years and there’s the new aged version, which I’ve only heard about and seen in the sidebar on facebook and you tube…

I don’t know if people can channel, see a different energy spectrum, remember other states of existence, leave their bodies and “travel”… and don’t know how I’d verify any thing people claim they can do… this includes every one of the people I talk with here

That said, I can usually spot a con-man, a creep, a liar… I’ve had vast experience with this type… but I can still get fooled by the better ones…

There is also the event that I look at everything for data collection purposes… My main, maybe only, real interest is technology (Mine)… “how do we work”

With others I focus more on their perceived needs “Why do you feel you’re in need of saving (salvation), evolving, awakening…” … In the world of Construction there are “fake” contractors… people expose them, sue them… but they can simply change the name of their business and be back in the game…

Then there is the part of me that wants to see people slammed into the dirt, to get their spiritual aspirations beat out of them, get their love and light teeth kicked in… in this sense (begin opinion) the phonies are doing more than I ever could to turn people around
