    • Apr 5 2013: TED Official say in an email:

      "We feel that the pseudoscience struggle is an important one. TED and TEDx cannot be platforms that give undo legitimacy to false evidence and selective logic — regardless of brilliant packaging,"

      Wow. Russell Targ is now on the wrong side of a struggle against pseudoscience, which means that TED officials believe that Targ is not a scientist, he's a fake scientist.
      • Apr 5 2013: Is it a struggle against pseudoscience or is pseudoscience struggling? See, it wasn't clear to me. But it is important. It's definitely very important.

        Seriously, it's like something written by a child, trying to regurgitate a concept he doesn't understand in a grade school essay.
