Personal experience which verifies the claims cannot be a bad thing, but they must be verified by stringent scientific testing to be regarded as being a good scientific theory. Otherwise it is just a religious belief.

All of this is totally unproven. Until we have some verifiable results it is just a faith-based belief - which you are entitled to of course, but to claim that there is anything scientific about it is absolutely false.
"energy in the blood being the source of life, or the life-force,,, that life/God is in the blood"
I dont understand the logic here. Yes there is energy in our blood - its how our body moves energy around. In what sense is that a validation of an astral life-force or of God? Is God made of glucose - I think not.

Yes and there is an absence of evidence for many or most of their beliefs too.
