My sister has been mentioning The Secret in her forums quite a bit, so I have been tempted to throw some counter-Secrets into her forums. But then I realized the following:

(1) she's never going to read anything negative about The Secret because The Secret forbids you from putting negative thoughts into your head and into the universe

(2) she could easily delete my anti-Secret posts from her forums because she has moderator privileges.

Which is why I am here in the Reviews section!

Join me now for a guided tour of the skeptical views on The Secret.

First, some humor from The Onion.

Second, the Skeptic's Dictionary defines "the law of attraction" for us.

Third, an article called "Oprah's ugly secret" at Salon.com.

Finally, "The Secret Behind The Secret," at Skeptic.com.

Thanks for stopping by!

The Secret does not forbid anything. I choose to come from a positive frame of mind because I dislike negativity. You can be as skeptical as you want, and I'll be as optimistic as I want, and we'll see what we each attract.

Very Happy

Good call on putting this in your own forum, tho! Wink
