Chris Anderson: '...We're all committed to open enquiry. But also to appropriate skepticism. Those two things can occasionally conflict. And when they do, we make our best judgement...' Chris, are you aware, you are censoring scientists (Targ, Dossey, Sheldrake, Schlitz, etc.) who have conducted proper long-term scientific lab research while allowing TED speakers such as James Randi, Michael Shermer, etc. talking upon subjects they are completely unqualified to comment upon since their research is unscientific and practically non-existent!

TED, will you please stop listening to political materialist / atheist pressure groupsand trust those who did the scientific research upon those subjects. The more scientific experimentation they have done on these very subjects, the more qualified they are to comment. The political materialist / atheist groups research is practically non-existant, they may pretend to own science from armchairs but unless they can quote experimentation, it is a house of cards.

Can you say specifically what is professional or 'good work' about this discriminatory decision? I see your profile describes yourself as an atheist. Is this the reason? These researchers are doing science, not religion. Any perceived overlap by those unfamiliar with their research doesn't not make it religion. An atheist is a person who disbelieves in models of God that no one else can agree the meaning upon. Whatever God means, the atheist disbelieves it, unless it all begins with an undefined accident. It may, therefore, be wiser to adopt the term 'agnostic', the term 'atheist' is a statement of faith.

To call Sheldrake a fraud is outrageous. The scientist is perfectly entitled to offeralternative hypotheses. Also in error, you are implying Sheldrake has no evidence. Sheldrake has experimental lab evidence for anomalous cognition, it is has been replicated by many others. Combined together (even after removing potential biases) the 'sense of being stared at' experiments have astronomical odds against chance expectation.

Are you aware the derogartory term 'woo' is an insult? The term emerged in the 1980s from political atheist/materialist groups to insult others, by using it your are aligning yourself with such groups. Do you really wish to insult physicist Russell Targ, biologist Rupert Shekdrake, social scientist Marilyn Schiltz, etc. who are trained scientists who have conducted scientific studies under the strictest of controls? When you say it 'wouldn't have been a hard one for me', what is this judgment actually based upon? Are you familiar with their decades of lab research? And if so, can you specifically say why their opinions based upon lab evidence should be labelled 'woo'
