On the other side of the coin, what I DO hate is when new agers or wiccans attempt to use known science -really badly I might add- to try to support their beliefs. Currently there is no such support whatsoever, and instead of authoritatively, pompously citing electromagnetism or dark energy as the source of their power, or blather on about "frequencies" when they clearly have no idea that a frequency is just a unit of measure, not an energy or substance- they should simply acknowledge that there is no empirical evidence for it, only anecdotal, and leave it at that.
True, but frequency is a bad example, as matter can be considered vibrating energy at frequency.
So someone could talk about 'frequency' in relation to energy/substance in fringe science without too much of a leap.
There does seem to be quite a bit of reuse / patterns in the universe. eg fractals, fibonacci sequence. So maybe it isn't so bad to try and explain concepts that are currently unexplainable by using incorrect but similar modern concepts.
But i do agree with you, it's annoying when science is twisted and things are considered to be scientifically proven when they're not
