I. My Naturopathy Blasphemy 01 [v.2.0] - There Is No Life Spirit:

[this deals with FNPLA naturopathy's requisite vitalism, spiritism, & teleology claimed as nonsectarian scientific fact]

.

Herein, I, Robert J. Cullen ['Dr. Bob Ironic'] will disavow a particular 'article of faith' -- a revered spirit entity, to be exact. Note that I am not a Christian, and this will not explicitly involve a "Holy Spirit" article of faith disavowal. This actually will not explicitly involve an article of faith of any of the classical, major organized religions. I do not belong to or abide the strictures of any religion -- I disavow all religiousness, herein implicitly. In fact, I haven't been religious for my entire adult life. I am faithless: I do not do the "supernatural" and particularly I do not do spirit entities. The dys-organized religious system this blasphemy pertains to is "naturopathic medicine," naturopathy of the AANP FNPLA CNME NPLEX UB etc. variety. The article of faith I will deal with is naturopathy's vitalistic spiritistic teleological 'core' belief -- a supernatural concept to be sure, which AANP FNPLA CNME etc. states is scientific fact [that's horseshit, vitalistic spiritistic teleological woo-woo is anything BUT scientific]. Naturopathy believes, essentially, that states of health and disease -- and the condition of being alive, in itself -- are due to a scientifically-verified, goal-directed life spirit. They call it many things: chi, prana, vital force or life force, and they even get fancy and dress it up as vis medicatrix naturae -- Latin for healing power of nature -- and they even get misleading, and call it simply nature, the body's capacity to heal, the immune system or homeostasis. Just a little background: I left the University of Bridgeport College of Naturopathy in 2002, primarily due to the sectarian 'nature' -- such a pun is irresistible -- of the UB program that claims to be simultaneously nonsectarian, scientific, and of high ethical caliber. But, vitalism, spiritism, and teleology are not scientific -- and naturopathy's principles which are built around those ideas are a nonscientific sectarian creed. Posing such articles of faith as science and nonsectarian is unethical -- and so I left naturopathy because it is an unethical sectarian pseudoscience. I'd like to mention those involved in this scam, or embroiled in this scam: the University of Bridgeport, their College of Naturopathic Medicine, and the agents and trustees of both; the Connecticut Department of Education and the Federal Department of Education; the AANP and FNPLA and kind; NEASC and Citibank. To all of you I say: thanks for the mindfuck, really. And to all of you rogues and amadans, I say pogue mahone. Anyway, here's my disavowal of the central article of faith of naturopathy: "I deny the vis medicatrix naturae, the goal-directed vital spirit responsible for life, and states of health and disease, in AANP, NEASC and UBCNM etc. naturopathy." I'll see you in reality.

II. My Naturopathy Blasphemy 02 [v.2.0] - There's No God Power / God / Divine Within Me:

.

[this deals with FNPLA naturopathy's extension of their requisite vitalism, spiritism, and teleology into autoentheism -- all claimed as nonsectarian scientific fact]

.

i. UBCNM and FNPLA naturopathy posits autoentheism:

.

i.01. The etymology of autoentheism:

.

i.01.a. auto- (see http://www.answers.com/topic/auto-prefix?cat=health) [AHD 4th 2007]:

.

"self."

.

i.01.b. en- (see http://www.answers.com/en%E2%80%93?cat=health) [AHD 4th 2007]:

.

"to put into [...] within."

.

i.01.c. theism (see http://www.answers.com/theism) [AHD 4th 2007]:

.

"belief in the existence of a god or gods."

.

Note: Properly read from right to left to ascertain meaning, autoentheism means 'the belief in god or the godly within oneself' a.k.a the 'divine' within (at http://www.answers.com/divine) [AHD 4th 2007]:

.

"having the nature of or being a deity [...] godlike."

.

i.02. Autoentheism at FNPLA's UBCNM:

.

I was taught that the supposed 'purposeful life spirit' within is also known as "god power within one" (see http://www.scribd.com/doc/8506762/UB-Naturopathys-ScienceEjected-Vitalism-Autoentheism-Such-Woo):

.

"[lecture #4 handout, titled] vis medicatrix naturae = healing power of nature [...aka] the body's own ability to heal [...aka] vital force = energy essential for life [...aka] vital force, innate, life principle, prana, bioplasmic energy, the god power within you."

.

i.03. Autoentheism at FNPLA's FNMP:

.

The naturopathy profession (FNPLA type ND / NMD) states (see http://www.foundationsproject.com/documents/FNM_Ed_Retreat_eBook_032407last.pdf):

.

"[concerning] spirituality and the vis medicatrix naturae [...] spirituality, consciousness, the vis and energy [...] vis is similar to what most religions consider as god / life force [p.046]."

.

ii. Let's blasphemy:

.

Herein, I, Robert J. Cullen a.k.a. 'Dr. Bob Ironic' (I am not a doctor of any kind ) will disavow a particular 'article of faith.' Note: I am not a Christian, and this will not explicitly involve a "Holy Spirit" or Jehovah / Yahweh / Jesus article of faith disavowal. Furthermore, I do not belong to or abide the strictures of any religion. I disavow all religiousness and supernaturalism, herein implicitly, because I am faithless: I do not do the "supernatural," and particularly I do not do 'spirit entity and god woo-woo.' Explicitly, the dysorganized religious / sectarian system this blasphemy pertains to is naturopathy of the AANP FNPLA CNME NEASC NPLEX etc. variety. The article of faith I will deal with is UBCNM and FNPLA naturopathy's vitalistic spiritistic teleological 'core' belief stated as god within -- a supernatural and specifically autoentheistic concept to be sure, which AANP FNPLA CNME etc. states is scientific fact [that's horseshit since vitalistic, spiritistic, teleological, theistic woo-woo is anything BUT scientific]. In spite of NO EVIDENCE, naturopathy claims, essentially, that states of health and disease -- and the condition of being alive, in itself -- are due to a scientifically-verified, goal-directed life spirit within one akin to the idea of god. They call it many things: chi, prana, vital force or life force, and they even get fancy and dress it up as vis medicatrix naturae -- Latin for healing power of nature -- and they even get misleading, and call it simply nature, the body's capacity to heal, the immune system or homeostasis. And they also call it 'god,' or 'god power within you.' I left the University of Bridgeport College of Naturopathy in 2002, primarily due to the sectarian 'nature' -- such a pun is irresistible -- of the UB program that claims to be simultaneously nonsectarian, scientific, and of high ethical caliber. But, theism / supernaturalism of whatever sectic preference is not scientific and posing articles of faith as science, science-based, and nonsectarian is unethical. So, I left naturopathy because it is an unethical sectarian pseudoscience. I'd like to mention those involved in this sCAM, or embroiled in this sCAM: the University of Bridgeport, their College of Naturopathic Medicine, and the agents and trustees of both; the Connecticut and Federal Departments of Education; the AANP and FNPLA and kind; NEASC and Citibank. To all of you I say: thanks for the mindfuck, really. And to all of you rogues and amadans, I say 'pogue mahone.' Anyway, here's my disavowal of the central autoentheistic article of faith of naturopathy: I deny that within me is the godly, godlike, or divine a.k.a naturopathy's vis medicatrix naturae, their 'goal-directed vital spirit' / 'god power within' responsible for life, and states of health and disease in AANP, NEASC and UBCNM etc. naturopathy. Again: I deny the existence of anything of the divine / god or godlike / godly within me, particularly naturopathy's 'purposeful life spirit' / god. I'll see you in reality.
