I live in Texas,Â and like most places in the south (and indeed in the U.S.), there is no shortage ofÂ Christian churches. They are allÂ around me. However, the neighborhood in whichÂ I live boasts an inordinate amount of psychics and palm readers. They easily outnumber the churches. The little shopsÂ dot major streets and neighborhood lanes alike just aboutÂ everywhere I go.
What kind of new age businesses, or pseudoscience organization, orÂ faith-based groupÂ do find mostÂ near you? And do we, as purveyors of critical thinking, have a responsibility to confront or speak out directly against these establishments in our neighborhoods?
