"In some ways..."? Really? In what ways? Thorvelden (talk)

Ah, the no-weasel-words thing. Fixed. But one of those ways was mentioned right afterward, the law of attraction. Secret Squirrel (talk) 14:36, 18 October 2010 (UTC)

huh?[edit]

I'm not sure who wrote this, or if they were thinking specifically of "Christian New Thought", but the claims here do not generally make sense in the framwork of New Though, including the entire section on "differences from Xianity". If someone is specifically referencing xian new though, maybe we need to retitle, or rework it, though that is in no way the major denomination of New Though. I'm also not sure why Christian Science is listed as a type of New Thought, as NT grows in part, out of CS, not the other way around. Before I hack it to death, does anyone want to frame it differently?--Pink mowse.pngGodotoi, putain, genial, merci 18:53, 15 March 2012 (UTC)

Tyrannis put the {{Christianity}} template on. After that probably everyone assumed this is Christian. Proxima Centauri (talk) 19:41, 15 March 2012 (UTC)

Not holding water. Every other non-minor edit after his is you. ArchieGoodwin (talk) 19:43, 15 March 2012 (UTC)
Someone else or I might have noticed the mistake without that template. Proxima Centauri (talk) 19:47, 15 March 2012 (UTC)
Or you could have read the fucking article, but apparently coherency is not your strong suit. ArchieGoodwin (talk) 19:49, 15 March 2012 (UTC)
Does this shed any light on the relationship between New Thought and Christianity? AN ANALYSIS OF THE HEALING MINISTRY OF JESUS Proxima Centauri (talk) 21:11, 15 March 2012 (UTC)
PC you are right, there is a lot of connection, I'm not doubting that. again, why I commented out and didn't cut. There is in fact a whole subdivision called "Christian New Thought" or sometimes "New Thought Christianity". Either way, the thing I personally would focus on is NT's connection to "new age". I'm not sure i'd template this as New age or not, but it sure was a serious influence on all the new religions out there.Pink mowse.pngGodotoi, putain, genial, merci 22:42, 15 March 2012 (UTC)
