You have demonstrated no clear cause and effect relationship for how you believe the world works, other than your say so (opinion). I have seen no supports for your assertions. Please cite for me the studies, scholarly works and imperical data that demonstrate that living like a shell of person is helpful to anyone at all. Your ideas are not logic based; they are fear based and that is an emotion.

Many Western hospitals and clinics are now offering acupuncture as one of the treatment options. Acupuncture is a thousands years old medical treatment system based solely upon the proper flow of chi in the body.

And what about the use of chi in martial arts? You keep forgetting to address that? Acupuncture and TCM in general, as well as jin based martial arts have not much to do with religion.

Religion has nothing at all to do with this discussion, except that you keep trying to drag it in. I’ve never said anything at all about religious belief. Look in my profile descriptor. I am a pragmatist. I base my life in what works and what is most helpful to myself and others. You appear to base yours in some imagined/felt system of beliefs. Who is the one who is actually most logical?
