Laura Snyder: The Philosophical Breakfast Club
Consciousness creates evolution. Consciousness underlies all phenomena. Evolution is a product of consciousness. “all matter originates and exists only by virtue of a force which brings the particles of an atom to vibration which holds the atom together. We must assume behind this force is the existence of a conscious and intelligent mind. This mind is the matrix of all matter.“ Max PlancK

Dan Dennett: The illusion of consciousness
I could not agree more. Also no reason to assume that the 100 trillion cells or so that make up a human body are not conscious, much more evidence that consciousness is inherent not only in every cell but iin matter itself. A quote from a Nobel prize winning physicist a scion of science agrees..... “all matter originates and exists only by virtue of a force which brings the particles of an atom to vibration which holds the atom together. We must assume behind this force is the existence of a conscious and intelligent mind. This mind is the matrix of all matter.“ Max PlancK

Robin Ince: Science versus wonder?
Well said sir, very well said. Materialism is a weird sort of belief so devoid of logic I am amazed that so many people who call themselves scientists are materialists. So very many great men have seen through the veil of materialism here are two thoughts from a couple of great minds. “all matter originates and exists only by virtue of a force which brings the particles of an atom to vibration which holds the atom together. We must assume behind this force is the existence of a conscious and intelligent mind. This mind is the matrix of all matter.“ Max PlancK "It is inconceivable that inanimate brute matter should, without mediation of something else which is not matter, operate on and affect other matter without mutual contact. ...

Niall Ferguson: The 6 killer apps of prosperity
One machine developed by a man who is free from superstition and thus able to experiment with nature can do the work of thousands of slaves. The synergy created when machines where created that created the things man needs to live are the big advance. The opinion that slavery was the reason does not hold up to scrutiny. BTW the last country on Earth to outlaw slavery was in Africa in 1989.

Consciousness is a material property and the essential component of life. So long as the universe exists life will exist in some form.
I agree with your point that when talking about new age ideas and confusing jargon "People read it, find it confusing enough to look like serious science and buy the basic idea that they're fishing for": Human beings have a hard time no being paradigm blind and just collecting facts that beliefs that they find comfortable and fitting of their already held beliefs. I believe there is a lot of that going on. Also the physics of the last 50 years or so has shown more and more that consciousness affects matter and is some sort of substrate to matter. I see on the side of science the same phenomenon. I have to agree with the following quote: “A new scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually die, and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it” Max Planck

Lee Cronin: Making matter come alive
@William, I am sure since you say your interested in science that you understand empiricism. The way science works is that you use evidence to bolster your ideas. What you have done is make an attack on my knowledge of the subject presumably because I disagree with you. That is childish and unscientific. If you have facts or ideas that you believe show or prove that natural selection is not a tautology then if you want to be scientific you would give them rather than attack. The fact that you do not understand the problem with transitional forms or acknowledge it means your accepting the common dogma and not studying the subject. That is what creationists do without pretending to be scientific. Science demands honesty. To quote Stephen Jay Gould "The extreme rarity of transitional forms in the fossil record persists as the trade secret of paleontology."The evolutionary trees that adorn our textbooks have data only at the tips and nodes of the branches; the rest is inference, however reasonable, not the evidence of fossils." Strange that like in Galileo's time but in reverse, anyone who questions the science behind evolution is branded a creationist.

Lee Cronin: Making matter come alive
I regard consciousness as fundamental. I regard matter as derivative from consciousness. We cannot get behind consciousness. Everything that we talk about, everything that we regard as existing, postulates consciousness. — Max Planck I wonder why such a man as Max Planck a scion of physics/science would say such a thing?
