Bastyr U.'s Naturopathy "Science Based" Claim - Natural Healers, BCNH, AANMC, Peterson's, GPIS (2009-06-29):

here are the results of a recent web search per >bastyr science based naturopathic<:

001. Bastyr University writes:

001.a. on the page "Bastyr University - Naturopathic Medicine Program":

"Bastyr University's School of Naturopathic Medicine [...of a] a distinct multidisciplinary, science-based approach to teaching with an emphasis on understanding the mind, body, spirit and nature [...quoting Whorton] 'Bastyr University [...] bringing scientific legitimacy to natural medicine' [...] a rigorous, science-based education [...of the] the natural health sciences."

Note: how did supernaturalism get science-based [and naturopathy's requisite vitalism {the science-ejected}], and the Nobel committee missed giving Bastyr an award for such a PROFOUNDLY revolutionary breakthrough? [It's not true].

001.b. on the page "Clinical Resources for Naturopathic Medicine":

"the science-based naturopathic medicine of today [...the] Textbook of Natural Medicine, 3rd ed. Edited by Joseph E. Pizzorno and Michael T. Murray. Edinburgh: Churchill Livingstone, 2005. This two-volume set has long been the standard reference for science-based natural medicine [...] Kent, J. T. Lectures on Homeopathic Philosophy [...] it includes information on how to take a case history and determine the proper remedy, and how to scientifically understand what constitutes a cure [...] Lindlahr, Henry. Philosophy of Natural Therapeutics. Maidstone, Kent ; Saffron Walden, Essex, England: Maidstone Osteopathic Clinic; C.W. Daniel, 1916. (Reprinted in 1985.) Henry Lindlahr, M.D. (1862-1924), a proponent of scientific naturopathy."

Note: "scientific naturopathy" is as logical as scientific nonscience.

001.c. on the page "Interviews and Profiles: Gannady Raskin, MD, ND Enhances Bastyr's Naturopathic Education Position as Dean":

"our science-based approach to natural medicine continues to garner worldwide respect."

Note: how does absurdity get respect?

002. Bastyr Center For Natural Health states:

002.a. on the page "Naturopathic Medicine: Overview":

"while firmly science-based, modern naturopathic medicine [etc.]."

002.b. on the page "Bastyr Center For Natural Health [...] Science Based Natural Health Progs, Graduate/Undergraduate":

"respected internationally for its science-based natural health programs."

003. Bastyr University President Church states on the AANMC page "Bastyr University - Message from the President":

"Bastyr University continues to champion science-based natural medicine."

004. Bastyr states on the Peterson's College Guide page "Bastyr University - School of Naturopathic Medicine":

"Bastyr's fully accredited four- to five-year Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine (N.D.) program is internationally renowned for its rigorous, science-based curriculum. Combining a distinct multidisciplinary, science-based approach to teaching with an emphasis on understanding the mind, body, spirit, and nature [...] students receive a thorough foundation in the basic medical sciences [...] the field of natural health sciences [...] scientifically trained naturopathic physicians."

005. Bastyr states on the Graduate Programs In Science [GPIS] page "Bastyr University: Naturopathic Medicine":

"the School of Naturopathic Medicine at Bastyr University is internationally renowned for its rigorous science-based curriculum [...] modern medical science [...] a strong preparation in the sciences [...] the natural health sciences."

Note: since when is 'nonscience as a basis' [the essentially naturopathic] the same as 'science-based' [what science actually supports, which sure as scat doesn't include supernaturalism and vitalism - minimally], academically speaking?
