Rupert Sheldrake at EU 2013 - Science Set Free
Many scientists like to think that science already understands the ways of the natural world. The fundamental questions are answered, leaving only the details to be filled in. The impressive achievements of science seemed to support this confident attitude. But recent research has revealed unexpected problems at the heart of physics, cosmology, biology, medicine and psychology.

This guys is a cunt. If you think some scientific ideas are wrong PROVE IT,
that is how science works. Scientists love to be proved wrong. I hate this,
"science is a dogmatic conspiracy bull shit". Put your money where your
mouth is and show why you are right, don't just state that your wild
unproven ideas are not taken seriously because science is dogmatic. And
stop using the term materialist, we are not in the 1800s anymore.

My opinion Dr. Rupert Sheldrake is becoming the most innovative, rational,
logical and philosophical thinker of this era, increases with every of his
discussions or writings.

He is the ram smashing the walls and breaking the chains of ignorance that
have imprison humanity as a slave race for an a minuscule group of societal

Brilliant. All of us have encountered open minded people acting very closed
minded when confronting dogmatic "world views". This means you can never
change the paradigm... I think that's a mistake.

He's attacking a strawman at some points, most notably number three: no
one's really established what came before the big bang, there's no
consensus or dogma at all there! It might be virtually impossible to know,
honestly, the same way it's impossible to see inside a black hole. After
all, it WAS a singularity.

You know, a lot of people in the 17th century weren't really that
Christian, including another set of founding fathers. That's besides the
point, though. If matter and energy were created or destroyed, go find
some evidence that isn't just vague and anecdotal. The plural of anecdote
is not data, and the antonym of belief is not reality. God running the
world was just how people thought back then.

...Also, you're trying to say that people in the 17th century both accepted
God as the creator of all things AND knew about atoms? Come on, atoms
weren't universally accepted even conceptually for a long time. I don't
even think Mendeleev subscribed to atomic theory! And certainly while a
greek did come up with the idea of atoms, a thing that can no longer be
split, a smallest part that has no parts, we eventually split the atom and
the philosophical origins of the term are a bit outmoded, though again,
only in relatively unusual circumstances. Also, I don't know if Aristotle
agreed with that greek and everyone knows Aristotle is the sum of all Greek

Also, if they believe in a christian god, that implies that the god can
work miracles, and I see no reason why that would prevent him from creating
or destroying matter. But we haven't seen god doing much these days...

Also, you're right: dark matter might be 'epicycles', as it were, inventing
things to fit the evidence. Maybe, maybe not. They're looking for it
because they don't have a better explanation for the behavior of galaxies-
after all, we haven't found it yet! Anyways, if you claim that dark matter
is [whatever location] in [whatever amount], you have to ask how it got
there. It's much less of a one size fits all explanation than , say, god.

Dark energy, by the way, is more like 'radiation x', which we now call
x-rays but when no one had a clue what they were, they got that kind of
name. We may not have found it, but we're looking for it, and when and if
we can't find it, we'll look elsewhere, right? Occams razor: start simple.

I'll admit that his joke is funny here, but A: I totally saw it coming and
B: unless you live in quantum phenomena (and anyone who tells you they
understand quantum physics is lying), things do exist regardless of when
they are observed or believed to exist or otherwise. IF dark matter exists,
there's no reason to think it didn't exist before- we can assume we just
didn't know about it. :u Did relativity exist before it was proven?

That reminds me, quantum things can theoretically violate conservation of
mass and energy anyways. Just in small amounts, or else the universal
accountant gets angry.
