The New Age

Just a quote from Sam Harris that made me chuckle. Especially the first line!

The New Age has offered little progress in this regard, because it has made spiritual life seem generally synonymous with the forfeiture of brain cells. Most of the beliefs and practices that have been designated as "spiritual," in this New Age or in any other, have arisen and thrive in a perfect vacuum of critical intelligence. Indeed, many New Age ideas are so ridiculous as to produce terror in otherwise dispassionate men.

"The End of Faith: Religion, Terror and the Future of Reason" by Sam Harris

Anyway, I've added it to: "TheNew Age and Satanism" by Vexen Crabtree (2004)
