Notes: Christianscience.com is a website dedicated to news about Christian Science. Christian Science is a pseudoscientific and overtly religious belief system founded by Mary Baker Eddy in 1866, based on the idea that Christianity is a verifiable set of beliefs. The central texts of Christian Science are the Bible and the Christian Science textbook, Science & Health With Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. There is irony in the term Christian Science as Christianity is a set of dogmatic beliefs, which is opposed to Science which is a method that strictly avoids dogma. In short, Christian Science advocates spiritual healing for medical conditions rather than proper medical treatment from a doctor. Sadly, people have died because of this pseudoscientific belief due to not seeking proper medical attention. (D. Van Zandt 8/17/2017)
