  • Apr 5 2013: TED's reasons for withdrawing the license for the West Hollywood event specifically are:


    - "we see several people who promote — as fact — theories that are well outside what most scientists would accept as credible."

    "- We disallow speakers who use the language of science to claim they have proven the truth of ideas that are speculative and which have failed to gain significant scientific acceptance."

    and - " If your program is allowed to proceed, it will truly damage other TEDx organizers’ ability to recruit scientists and other speakers. (Indeed many in the TED and TEDx communities have already reached out to us to express their concern.)"
