Why is that everything that Ms McTaggart does is so commercially oriented?5 Nov. 2013

The author Lynne has also a series of web sites that seem more commercial than altruistic. If you read the book, it poses an interesting idea about human intentions; however, if you visit Mrs. McTaggart web sites, you notice that the only intentions she has is for you, her captive audience, to sell you her products. How sad.
I don't want to sound mean or rude, but I have a question that many people who I try to convince to join her blog tell me about her books (specially this book) and other products she sells. The question I asked Mrs. Taggart was:
Why are all your web sites so commercially oriented? That is one of the first things that "hit" you when you go to any of your web sites and some people (professionals such as doctors, engineers, architects, psychiatrists, psychologists, and scientists) that I know point that out to me. They tell me that you have an ulterior motive. Can this be true? That you have an hidden agenda besides your altruistic intention experiment ???
Well, it seems that in the surface, this is true. All of your websites sell books, WDDTY magazines, seminars and lectures, and the only thing that is for free is this blog.
Don't get me wrong, I know that you need to sell stuff to maintain the web sites and provide food in your table, but must you be so blatant about your commercial intentions in all of these web sites?
My colleagues are not impressed. They argue that your "Intention Experiment" is more of an exercise in mercantilism and a "Commercial Intention Experiment" than anything else.
Another problem is that my colleagues see is that she sells seminars or courses about a theory on "Intention". How can anyone teach about a theory and then sell the courses? Mrs. McTaggart you are a journalist NOT a scientist, psychologist or sociologist to be teaching something which is in the fringes of science! With all due respect ma'am, what are you going to teach? Are you going to teach to focus on an Intention to see whether it comes true and then charge for this "revelation" as if it were a graduate university class? You are basing your understanding on a theory called "the law of attraction", which is nothing more than speculation and hasn't been proven. So, what will you really be teaching here - an idea, a speculation ? Or do you have, as my dear colleagues think, an ulterior motive to make a buck ?
In all honestly, be careful of charlatans, speculators, and con artists that try to sell you pseudo science.
