The “New Scientist” has been the “old pre-renaissance/witchcraft-pagan-preChristianphilosophy GORE-RAG” for some time now. I stopped reading it regularly about 1998, although it was prime reading for us boys at school in the 1960s, and the school even paid for it to be in the library in enough quantity for us even to take ti away, along with “Nature“, and for the nerds, the “Scientific American” (which I still even like sometimes.) Funny how that’s somehow near where the Blairwitch came to power.
