Lay Lines were rediscovered during this period as well and many people tried to imagine the magic of that period, there was even a surge of witchcraft practices. ......
Given the times it should not surprise anyone that he would bring up "energies of the earth" or "electric flow through the earth and those organisms that live in the soil", in his time, these would have been acceptable to most people as wonders of the world.
Today we live in a different reality, one that stresses self over all else. We read about lay lines, conjunctions of energy flow of the earth, and most of us shake our heads and dismiss these ideas as either myth or out right fiction.

It's like when you say, "I love my daughter." Some could say, "Prove it". Not all experiences need to be explained or proven. We limit our experiences in life if they all have to be rationally proven and explained. Many of the greatest scientific experiences I have had, including biodynamic practices, happened not because I felt that I had to rationally dissect every step of the way, but because I had an intuitive sense that it might work. On some, I was later able to explain, but not always. If I have to dissect my joy of experiencing nature, I no longer have the experience of the joy of nature.

Since I have a background in both of these worlds, it is easier for me to accept what Steiner talked about at this spiritualist level.
I have experience in such thinking, I also live in a duality world, and so it makes some sense to me.
Most scientist types or even uneducated lay people tend to poo-poo what he was trying to get across as "mumbo jumbo".
But even scientist have discovered that there is some wisdom to planting by the moon phases, gravity is the actual culprit in the moon phase planting cycle.
