i don't think its petty, and i as indicated, I read his book - about half of it when i finally gave up because it was a complete waste of time. But pseudo science can be worse than a waste of time it can be deadly.
If people are going to be here promoting his crap, then expect some scrutiny -just like in real life. He makes scientific claims then refuses peer reveiwed research. when someone criticizes him:
Hawkins replies to most of his critics by calibrating their levels of consciousness, which he finds to be below the level of truth/integrity (200).
Not one of his supporters here have answered the fundemental question: Why does he lie about his qualifications and more bizzarly, knighthood?
He says smoking organic tobbaco is good:
* Hawkins grows and smokes his own tobacco. Based on applied kinesiological testing, he deems the organic tobacco to be positive for him
and commercially produced cigarettes to be detrimental due to pesticides included since 1957.
