I agree wholeheartedly. 

If this is supposed to be a scientific nation there is no place for unproven voodoo. This especially critical when, eventually, science and engineering will be what keeps the nation alive in space. The problem is that the voodoo pedlars do a very good job of brainwashing. Just look at the vast amounts spent on Homeopathy and the glaring absence of peer reviewed evidence of efficacy. If we are going to spend money on this sort of stuff in the face of all available scientific evidence we may as well go full-stupid and start a climate change denial campaign too.
