here, sadly I cite from a web page of Canada's McMaster University which promotes a naturopathy degree as a science career path [see 001., below]; then, I cite from the web pages of one of the schools MU promotes -- that I went to -- and show that they too label naturopathy science while simultaneously stating what naturopathy is based upon contextually, which is the science-ejected [see 002., below]:
001. McMaster University Faculty of Science states in "Science: Career and Cooperative Education -- Naturopathy Schools" [vsc 2010-12-24]:
"naturopathy schools accredited by the Council on Naturopathic Medical Education, www.cnme.org [...in Canada]: Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine, Naturopathic Doctor Diploma Program, www.ccnm.edu; Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine, Naturopathic Doctor Diploma Program, www.binm.org [...in the US] Bastyr University, Naturopathic Doctor Diploma Program, www.bastyr.edu; National College of Naturopathic Medicine, Naturopathic Doctor Diploma Program, www.ncnm.org; Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine, Naturopathic Doctor Diploma Program, www.scnm.edu; University of Bridgeport [UB], Naturopathic Doctor Diploma Program, www.bridgeport.edu/naturopathy [...] interested applicants are advised to check the relevant naturopathic school’s website for the academic and additional requirements before submitting an application to the school of their choice [...and MU also links to] American Association of Naturopathic Physicians, www.naturopathic.org; Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors, www.cand.ca; Ontario Association of Naturopathic Doctors, www.oand.org; Ontario Board of Directors of Drugless Therapy, www.boardofnaturopathicmedicine.on.ca; Public Health Agency of Canada, www.phac-aspc.gc.ca; Nova Scotia Association of Naturopathic Doctors, nsand.ca; British Columbia Naturopathic Association, www.bcna.bc.ca; Manitoba Naturopathic Association, www.mbnd.ca; Saskatchewan Association of Naturopathic Practitioners, www.sanp.ca; International Naturopathic Students’ Association, www.members.tripod.com/~INSA/index.html [...and this is all courtesy of] Science Career & Cooperative Education, Burke Science Building Room 127, www.science.mcmaster.ca/scce, (905) 525-9140 ext. 27898."
Note: yes, you can have that science career you always dreamed of through a naturopathy degree! Not.
002.a. states naturopathy is within science categorically in here [vsc 2010-12-24];
002.b. yet, strangely, admits that what is essential to the naturopathic is:
002.b1. the vitalistic:
see this collection of mine.
Note: which is science-ejected, see this collection of mine.
002.b2. and the supernaturalistic:
see this collection of mine.
Note: which is science-ejected, see this collection of mine. This type of crap / junk thought by way of naturopathy is the absurdity that fuels this blog.
003. some things I am concerned about, still:
education consumers are being misled, and the false inducements by the naturopathy crowd are causing huge expense and diversion from career options that are actually what they say they are;
reputable institutions are being lazy and therein being muddied by their naturopathy promotion / promotion of the essentially false.
