anthropomorphised I stumbled on something at the Healing Whiteness blog: indigenous science.  For example:

Indigenous science is holistic, drawing on all the senses, including the spiritual and psychic.

What I find interesting about this is the attempt to appropriate the word “science” for something that is explicitly not scientific.  In fact, the blog has a list of the ways that indigenous science  differs from real science.  It reminds me of Creation Science, which is religion posing as science, and Scientology, which is gibberish posing as science.  If someone wants to reject science, fine, I don’t agree but I can respect the position.  But rejecting science in principle while hanging on to the labels is just pathetic.

Speaking of healing whiteness, I think I’ll go work on my tan.
