Hi everyone, haven't been here in a while. Hope you are all well?

Just read this on Paul Sim's blog and thought it was pretty good. The Catholic church has taken a stance on Reiki. The title of the post was "Pot, kettle?", read on and you will see why.
"A Catholic who puts his or her trust in reiki would be operating in the realm of superstition, the no man's land that is neither faith nor science. Superstition corrupts one's worship of God by turning one's religious feeling and practice in a false direction."

To a sceptic, the question of whose side to take may well prove to be an insurmountable ethical dilemma…

Then again, religions have always been very adept at exploiting just such conundrums, so the choice of whom to reject more energetically is marginally clearer.

The Conference of Catholic Bishops has warned that reiki, an alternative therapy involving the channelling of "energy" from the therapist to the patient, "lacks scientific credibility" and also risks exposing people to "malevolent forces", a notion which is of course hugely credible and strongly supported by scientists, particularly those working in Malevolent Forces and Evil Spirits research departments around the world.
Does anyone know where I could read more about the research into "Malevolent Forces and Evil Spirits"? I am interested to read about some that does not also "[lack] scientific credibility".
