Is the Law Attraction only a theory? After all, it has not been proven so how can we believe that this Law really does work.
Arguably the first self-improvement guide that existed, which mentioned, or more accurately referred to the law attraction, was the First Testament.
We therefore have to take a 'Spiritual' or 'Religious' view.
So do I argue the existence of a God?
But then again...
It is science that has put the law of attraction, back on the modern day 'table'. So do I argue the fact of science?
You see, throughout history, it has been a battle of science and religion, from astrology to evolution you could not sit on the fence... Were you blinded by science or misguided by religion?
This is a dawn of a new age, where religion will need to embrace its own evolution, and science its spirituality.
Our minds are like parachutes, only functioning properly when fully open, and now is the time to 'Pull The Cord'.
If you air on the side of science, I ask you to consider the spiritual arguments and vice versa for religious readers, these theories follow logical patterns.
Before we start, a word about "God"
I will not stand here to prove the existence of your or any God, I do not stand on any side of religion, when I speak about "God", I do so for want of a better name. To begin with, it will do us well to dispel all our visual ideas of God, especially as a human, because that will seem to limit our ideas of power and resource.
But before we embark on the principle of the law attraction as fact we need to clear up the issue of proof, it has been said, and strictly speaking its true, that, "The Law of Attraction is only a theory; it hasn't been proved."
So how can we prove the Law of Attraction?
Strictly speaking it is, but there is some confusion between what "theory" means informally, compared to a "theory" of science.
In the scientific sense, a theory is a group of general propositions used as principles to explain a condition or phenomena.
So does this mean that the law, Attraction is uncertain?
Not at all, or more accurately speaking, as uncertain as electricity, gravity and evolution.
Ah, I here you say, electricity and gravity are governed by laws!
True, and here's the difference, a theory does not imply lack of certainty, but explains the reason for seeing a result, to our best understanding, a law however, implies that the results we see can be calculated in controlled conditions.
Yes but as a theory or law, the law Attraction has no proof!
Ok, but does that make it weak?
Has anything in the physical world ever been proved? Or will it ever be?
Our minds are like parachutes, only functioning properly when fully open
In the real world, we must deal with levels of certainty based on evidence.
The more and better evidence we have for something, the more certainty we assign to it.
Amd then, when there is enough evidence, we label the something a fact, even though it still isn't 100% certain, or fully understood.
To use proof as an argument against the 'theory' of the law 'Attraction', is ridiculous ... you might as well argue that gravity is a theory, and that we can't assume objects will always fall to the ground, after all it's far from being completely understood.
What the Law Attraction has is what any good scientific claim, or evidence, and lots of it. A wide range of observations throughout history supports the law Attraction and to challenge the theory, Attraction, you must address that evidence.
You must show that the evidence is either wrong or irrelevant, or that it fits another theory better.
Of course, to do this, you must know both the theory and the evidence.
One of the most successful self-help books of all time was a 25 year study of success principles documented by Napoleon Hill in his books Law of Success and Think and Grow Rich
Think and Grow Rich Hill refers to the law 'Attraction' as the 'Secret', which has made fortunes for more than five hundred exceedingly wealthy men whom he carefully analyzed over a long period of years.
The secret law Attraction, was brought to Hill's attention by Andrew Carnegie, asking Hill if he would be willing to spend twenty years or more, taking this principle to the world, to men and women who, without the secret, might go through life as failures.
This book contains the secret law Attraction, after having been put to a practical test by thousands of people, in almost every walk of life.
It was Mr. Carnegie's idea that the magic formula, which gave him a stupendous fortune, ought to be placed within reach of people who do not have time to investigate how men make money, and it was his hope that Hill might test and demonstrate the soundness of the formula through the experience of men and women in every calling.
He believed the formula should be taught in all public schools and colleges, and expressed the opinion that if it were properly taught it would so revolutionize the entire educational system that the time spent in school could be reduced to less than half.
While I was performing the twenty year task of research, which I had undertaken at Mr. Carnegie's request, I analyzed hundreds of well known men, many of whom admitted that they had accumulated their vast fortunes through the aid of the Carnegie secret; among these men were:
WILLIAM WRIGLE JR
JAMES J. HILL
GEORGE S. PARKER
E. M. STATLER
HENRY L. DOHERTY
CYRUS H. K. CURTIS
JOHN W. DAVIS
WILLIAM JENNINGS BRYAN
DR. DAVID STARR

HON. JENNINGS RANDOLPH
"These names represent but a small fraction of the hundreds of well known Americans whose achievements, financially and otherwise, prove that those who understand and apply the Carnegie secret, reach high stations in life.
I have never known anyone who was inspired to use the secret, who did not achieve noteworthy success in his chosen calling.
I have never known any person to distinguish himself, or to accumulate riches of any consequence, without possession of the secret.
From these two facts I draw the conclusion that the secret is more important, as a part of the knowledge essential for self-determination, than any which one receives through what is popularly known as education."
