Deepak Chopra, the science supporter

Deepak Chopra is defending science?  I think science would be better off without his help.

 

"The real goal of a new science will be to expand our reality so that spiritual truths are acceptable, along with many other subjective experiences that science has long dismissed as unreliable."

I am also surprised he is given space on CNN news.

So he wants a "science" that will accept his preconceived ideas and those of other people. Well my "spiritual truth" and "subjective experience" states that Deepak Chopra is AN EVIL BRAIN EATING ALIEN FROM THE PLANET HARPO! So apparently science should accept my obviously wrong(?) idea? He just doesn't understand science, or he would realize that what he hates about it is it's core strength!

Really? Have you ever seen CNN? I'm never surprised at any of the bullshit that the propaganda mills, er I mean ALL of the "respected" media companies vomit upon an unsuspecting populace. Appalled? Yes. Surprised? No.

You're right, probably I had too much faith in CNN. Smiling 

CNN is something like a lesser evil for me.  I start vomiting on all other news agencies even before their web sites are uploaded. 

However, as an act of masochism, I listen to FoxNews radio every day. This morning Neal Boortz said something that I am surprisingly agree with.  He said basically that the less uneducated people are the more unaware they are about it.  It does not surprise me that I agree with this statement, but it does surprise me that he said it.   Look at Bill O'Riley, he certainly missed his science class in school (Mars's moons, for example), but he is so determined that his knowledge is great, that he sounds pathetic.

Don't get me wrong, I do keep up on the corporate propaganda mills, but only to know what lies are being pushed that day. So I guess I watch and listen more like a partisan in Europe during the 30's and 40's, less to get any actual information and more to plan the next attack!

You need to know what your opponents are saying if you wish to counter them!

Richard Dawkins Vs. Deepak

Laughing out loud Richard Dawkins has a couple of questions for Deepak about quantum physics :
