Yes semantics I guess. Sounds like you're more aware of the history of philosophy than me. I thought University of Metaphysics might have meant a philosophy course, instead it's just more new age. Do you have any other Science investigating Metaphysics you could suggest?

I'm going to mirror that statement back at you:
Just to mirror...science, specifically some interpretations of quantum physics, strangely suggests consciousness plays a role in collapsing a particles wave-function, but no one is certain and its an open debate. So called, "spiritual people" who constantly attempt to justify the metaphysical are not very good truth seekers, rather they are fanatics, hidden in the cloth of spirituality, pushing a certain agenda. Spiritualists have a little education and learning to do......
That's pretty much how it sounds to me... No one is debunking anything here. Just talking about the word metaphysics.
Not everyone who disagrees with some new age ideas (and yes I know lots about theosophy, spiritualism, new thought and all sorts of other precursors to the new age) is an atheist. Some people just like to seek the truth, not just believe what they're told. Maybe if the people who run the University of Metaphysical Science had some credibility they would include some science in their curriculum - especially if they're trying to be professional.
