The debate about Graham Hancock's talk
Steve I agree with you that the archeological stuff is not directly relevant here, interesting though it is. It seems that the few people who have spoken against Graham Hancock on this thread cant help themselves and refer to it as a way of discrediting his views per se. Not only has he been associated with creationism but also with ancient alien stuff and so on. All this proves is that his detractors are misinformed from the outset as to his position in such matters. Everything is debatable, and intelligent debate is what will hopefully lead us to the truth in such matters.

Somewhat disingenuous to compare Graham Hancock with a blatent young earth creationist. He doesnt argue from that camp, period. He may be off the mark or overenthusiastic with some of his assumptions but even Jason Colavito admits that interesting unanswered questions are raised that should be engaged with rather than dismissed out of hand .. which is pertinant to the issue here. Lots of anomalies exist within the archeological pardigm that should be addressed rather than swept under the carpet because they dont fit in with the existing conclusions. Gobekli Tepe for instance is something that shouldnt exist but does and it has a story to tell and I for one am very interested in that story.

A very welcome and eloquent request to TED to consider their actions concerning this issue. Coming as it is from someone directly affiliated with the TED organisation, and moreover a curator of these talks, I'm sure a lot of the people who have taken the time to comment on this thread, and on others will appreciate what you have said here. From what you say concerning the guideline criteria that you were following in choosing speakers it is quite obvious that both Hancock and Sheldrake sit comfortably within these parameters.Let us all hope now that your very reasonable request to the TED team is taken up with good grace and these fascinating talks are reinstated.

@ Sarah Parcak .. if you knew about Grahams views on the the Great Pyramid ( and Robert Bauvals for that matter ) you would know that they do not advocate the notion that aliens built the pyramids for goodness sake .. you are commenting from a point of obvious ignorance. Do your homework. Also it has nothing to do with the issue on hand so why you bring it up is a mystery.

Ahh TED .. the more you push this into a dusty obscure corner the more transparent you become .. for an organisation that prides itself on its intelligence you are acting in a most ignorant and juvenile way .. shame on you.
