After listening to the On Belief podcast on LGATs today I took a stroll through google search to see how things have been shaking out lately for Byron Katie and The Work.

That gave me hope that perhaps less

Here is an article from September 2011 at Study – Grow – Know, a Christianity based blog authored by Th.D. Fred DeRuvo: DeRuvo's analysis of the nonsensical nature of Byron Katie's self-promulgating quotation archive is likely 101 for most readers here at Rick Ross, but it always feels to me like a port in a storm to come across published criticism of Byron Katie and The Work.

The section about the difference between metaphysics and pseudoscience really strikes a chord for me, and possibly other readers as well.
