    Regarding oil prospecting: it may come to this…
    Regarding health care cost reduction: this is a meaningless comparison as there is a HUGE ongoing vested interest in increasing costs and therefore profits.
    Regarding financial/business planning: and you think the crash of ’08 wasn’t because they weren’t using faith based methods of forecasting….? And what about the crash of ’00? I know people who lost their entire retirement savings. If financial planners were actually using tools that worked neither of these events would have had the devastating effects they have.
    Crystals are used in regular energy: see your watch for an example.
    Curses and hexes are mainly used against individuals, therefore using the military seems like overkill 😉

    Probably the most compelling argument I’ve ever seen against these various paranormal phenomena being legitimate, if you ask me!

    If any of these were real, someone would be profiting from it.
