Just like Free Thought said, it's like swapping crazy for crazy. New Age is maybe less dangerous than religion but still dangerous, as it functions entirely on pseudoscience and superstition.
Agreed, an objectively less dangerous delusion is still a delusion. I want rationalism and skepticism to win out as important values to hold, not swapping out faith in one set of metaphysics (Jesus) for another (Gaia).
