The debate about Rupert Sheldrake's talk
You've been insulting and trolling since day one yet here you are, still allowed to insult- the fact you haven't been given the boot suggests someone must be silently cheering you on Jimmy. You've reduced what was at times an intelligent and informed discussion to childish name calling. Don't let 'em down now!

The debate about Rupert Sheldrake's talk
Jimmy, did you not read Sheldrake's response to the accusations made against him by the TED Scientific Board? They can be found here: http://blog.ted.com/2013/03/14/open-for-discussion-graham-hancock-and-rupert-sheldrake/ Now tell me, if you think Sheldrake was "destroyed" by the esteemed scientists TED consulted, why did TED draw a line through every single one of their charges after Sheldrake s rebuttal? You are a very silly person "Jimmy".

TED responds: "You'll get nothing and like it!" Seriously, it's a relief that the charade of TED being this open-minded organization can come to an end. Their behavior has been deplorable. I hope Sheldrake never misses an opportunity to slam them in the press.

The debate about Rupert Sheldrake's talk
Jerry Coyne is reporting another TEDx event he complained about is now being canceled- this one included Russell Targ as a speaker. In a way it's cool, I will no longer waste time on this "debate"- I realize they're in the backpocket of militant atheists like Jerry Coyne. Heck, just look at the scientists listed on their "TED Brain Trust", most of which are well known atheists- you might get a sense of why they're so sympathetic to Coyne's complaints. Unfortunately, militant atheists don't tend to be the most open-minded or tolerant folks when it comes to having their beliefs challenged. A bit like fundamentalists in that regard. So long TED, I now understand the cowardice. You folks are every bit as ignorant and closed-minded as the Jerry Coyne's of the world. Sheldrake will not get his debate- they're afraid of how foolish he'll make them look. TED should change their slogan to "Ideas we're not afraid of spreading".

The debate about Rupert Sheldrake's talk
Right. I'm agnostic- still find Sheldrake's research interesting. It's fascinating; many of Sheldrake's most vociferous critics on this thread have acknowledged they've never read a thing he's written, they are basically ignorant about the subject being "debated", yet are filled with certainty that they're right. Meanwhile, the people opposed to the censorship, the people who seem to be most familiar with Sheldrake's research, have routinely expressed doubts.

Krisztian, Mckenna DID NOT predict the world would end in 2012. Let me guess, just like you haven't read any of Sheldrake's work, yet pretend to be informed, you're also an expert on Mckenna without having read anything he wrote? Anyway, yes, Mckenna thought SOMETHING might happen on 12/21/2012 but he did not know what it might be. And he was open to the possibility it could be nothing.

Actually, your attack is not really even directed at his research, which I guess is sort of admirable given how little you know about it- you're primarily interested in attacking the man in the most outrageous, over the top manner. It's amazing- you're filled with such certainty. Yet you seem so ignorant when it comes to Sheldrake.
