Rebuttle of Feng Shui

Feng Shui Fallibilities

1.  Too old for "cult" status but not as a "pseudo-science".  Just plain superstition? Or maybe be a widespread generalized low level anxiety or a form of "OCD" (obsessive compulsive disorder) passed down through generations.  The credibility of Feng Shui is shattered when truly natural forces occur.

2.  It would be far more productive to discover a region's potential for geothermic (volcanic) and tectonic (earthquake/continental shift/tsunami) activity before a dwelling is even constructed.   Erroneous reasoning takes precedence, time and again, whether it be some imagined control over energy flow or belief that deities will protect through faith, prayer and a myriad of other assorted rituals.

3.  Massive planetary forces don't recognize such practices, however.  One must consider how many Feng Shui "correct" buildings were destroyed by the great earthquake in the Sichuan Province of China in 2009?  Feng Shui homes along with those who practice it were swept away by the giant tsunami that hit Malaysian coasts in 2012.  Let's not forget the death and devastation of Chinatown population in the 1906 San Francisco earthquake.

4.  Even religionists look at these cataclysmic events as the sign of the "End Times".  When in reality, they have been happening all along for billions of years.  As our population as a race continues to increase so does our experience of them.  The more construction...the more destruction, more people...more death and suffering when disasters strike.  A perfect example is the utter annihilation of Pompeii and Herculaneum when Vesuvius erupted in 79 AD.  The population of those ancient Roman towns was comparatively sparse then.  Today millions more live in the area of that same, still active, volcano

5.  We still build on fault lines, flood plains, coastal areas hit by periodic dangerous storms then expect the constraints of Meta magical thinking like Fen Shui to make everything positive, peaceful etc. ...People need to pay more attention to their immediate environment.

6.  Peace, happiness and good living varies with each and every individual and can end in a moment.  However, the acquisition of knowledge, good planning, being observant and knowing your environment can produce more of a measure for the above goals.  Feng Shui is nothing but a phantom thought process.

One more point about this Feng Shui I would like to make,

Any efficacy derived from the practice of Feng Shui is, conveniently, not testable.  Any claims of benefit from Feng Shui is purely subjective. As James Randi would say...Flim Flam!!
