Appendix H. - UB Nonsectarian Claims:

.[as a general observation, it is quite sectarian and unethical {particularly in terms of scientific medicine} to require these articles of faith {the supernatural, metaphysical, idealistic and kind} be claimed as the scientific and the science-based: vitalism, spiritism, teleology-finalism, autoentheism]

"the College of Naturopathic Medicine is an integrated unit of the University of Bridgeport, a private, non-sectarian, comprehensive university" [while naturopathy is ESSENTIALLY sectarian medicine!!! - a 'medical' approach based upon and requiring specific articles of faith {vitalism, spiritism, teleology-finalism and kind}];

"the University of Bridgeport Master of Science in Acupuncture degree program is an integrated unit of the University of Bridgeport, a private, non-sectarian, comprehensive university [while Acupuncture and TCM are essentially sectarian medicine...how a metaphysical system and worldview attains the status of a Master's level SCIENCE degree at a REGIONALLY ACCREDITED U.S. university is beyond me...but UB seems to collect such programs]";

[I'll point out the obvious as concerns UB naturopathy being a form of sectarian medicine:

*UB naturopathy requires homeopathy -- with homeopathy a sectarian medicine particularly due to a required belief in vital-force-spirit (VFS), and kind;

*UB naturopathy requires VFS, and kind -- which, if that makes homeopathy sectarian medicine, then so it goes for naturopathy en masse.

And remember, science discarded VFS and kind, and specifically does not employ supernatural explanations, while UB claims that VFS and kind {vitalism, spiritism, teleology-finalism and kind} are a form of scientific medicine -- which is absurd, and thus false.]
