Is Feng shui an utter load of crap?

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

I think we can all agree on its beauty, but is it worth dying for?
Apparently so.

Eight stabbed to death in row after man accuses neighbours of ruining his home's feng shui.

Row broke out when Li Hsing's neighbour put a mirror outside his home
Li accused the neighbour of sending him bad luck and told him to remove it
When the neighbour refused Li got a knife and killed him and seven others

Because of the influence of animism it is often difficult to distinguish between imported philosophies and indigenous mysticism. For example no one places the entrance facing west in our village since they believe that dead spirits will enter from that direction after dark.
Is that shin phooie or does it have internal cultural influence?
I think CEO news posted a good description of what it is to a lot of western folk. I would imagine it would take a few years of dedicated study to unpick the mix of anamism, religion and Feng shui in Cambodian​ culture.
