I think they are using weasel words and false analogies.BETTER EXAMPLE.I picked acupuncture. The wegbsite www.acupuncturetruth.com tries hard to argue it is completely valid. It uses many confusing terms like ‘cosmic balance,’ ‘quantum interface of bioenergy.’ This is an example of using TECHNOBABBLE. In addition they say that ‘A mystical energy called ‘chi’ flows through invisible channels i the body. This is like a river system. When a real river is blocked, bad things happen, like floods. When rivers of chi are blocked we get sick.’ This is a FALSE ANALOGY, comparing mystical invisible rivers in the body with realy rivers of water.'(Note the correct use of the CAPCON system.
