so why did the atheists change their tune when it came to "The Secret" ?

Did anybody, atheist, Christian or otherwise ever actually believe in that law of attraction stuff?

I'm pretty sure the whole thing is just an extended interpretation of the placebo/nocebo effect. A very warped interpretation at that.

And there's that whole "think yourself rich" aspect, which is a bunch of bull.

I really don't recall any atheists, here or otherwise, praising The Secret.

The Secret kind of reminds me of prosperity gospel preachers. "God/The Universe wants you to be happy, so you just have to have faith. Didn't work? Obviously you didn't believe hard enough."
