001. the University of Bridgeport's labeling of naturopathy as "science":
001.a. this picture was taken from the City of Bridgeport's sidewalk [2008-10-04]. So, publicly, UB obviously labels naturopathy "science" [x2!] and engages in commerce under that epistemic designation:

001.b. here it is again, in terms of UB's publicly available electronic documents: UB's 1998 homepage labeling naturopathy "science" (see http://web.archive.org/web/19981205021135/http://www.bridgeport.edu/):
002.a. foremost, naturopathy is obligated to vitalism and supernaturalism:
002.a1. naturopathy's obligatory vitalism, specifically at UB (see http://animatisticnapantheism111.blogspot.com/).
002.a2. naturopathy's obligatory supernaturalism, specifically in UB's current catalog [p.070-071] (see http://www.bridgeport.edu/include/pdf/academics/UBCat0608_Schools.pdf).
"naturopathic medicine is distinguished by the principles [e.g. vitalism, supernaturalism] upon which its practice is based. The principles are continually reexamined in the light of scientific advances." As if such principles survive scientific scrutiny!!!
003. in reality, what does science say about vitalism and supernaturalism?
003.a. vitalism is profoundly science-ejected (see http://novfsinscience.blogspot.com/).
003.b. supernaturalism is profoundly science-ejected (see http://sciencerejectssupernaturalism0000.blogspot.com/).
004. therein, the kind of science this is is the nonscientific kind!!! Where is what's labeled essentially scientific not essentially scientific by a long shot...
