Boston, MA-Harvard researchers today announced that nearly a third of American adults make use of Feng Shui, the ancient Chinese practice of placement and arrangement of space to achieve harmony with the environment.
"I am blown away by these findings," psychologist and Feng Shui skeptic Sara Lazar revealed in response to the study. "Who would have thought that in a society that is so dependent on science and technology this many people would turn to a so-called metaphysical art with no evidence to support the claimed positive effect on health, wealth and personal relationships. I have to say I'm concerned that bias may have come into play in the interpretation of the data."
When told of the skeptical response to his study, lead researcher Michael Clouse explained "I first became convinced of the power of Feng Shui thirty years ago and its use has improved my life again and again. Just yesterday I replaced the pile of human skulls in my bedroom with a lovely fountain. What size hat do you wear by the way?"
