Dena DeCastro Posted 12 months ago The debate about Rupert Sheldrake's talk I agree with you that pseudoscience is problematic in its dishonesty. However, you make a completely false connection between Sheldrake's talk and pseudoscience. He was not purveying pseudo-scientific views. Rather, he was questioning and deconstructing the prevailing dogmas of science. Sheldrake is merely pointing out the rise of a dominant worldview that has essentially become its own religion. Questions are just too uncomfortable for some people to sit with. Questions and uncertainty make one feel vulnerable. The materialist worldview offers the illusion of certainty, which must be a great comfort to those who don't want to question. Give me topsy turvy any day.
