More than just news
Rupert Sheldrake is a fascinating member of the scientific world. His TED talk below, called “The Science Delusion,” was controversially censored by the TED community after being aired.
If you have studied any area of science on your own or in school, you may have noticed there are many differing beliefs in the scientific world. For nearly every theory or ‘fact,’ there appears to be an opposing one, or many. While this statement seems impossible given that science is supposed to be based on evidence that produces provable theories, it is a delusion not to realize that much of what is strictly believed in the scientific world is only believed because it has already been accepted by the mainstream and therefore no longer questioned — much like what takes place within religion. This is not to say that there aren’t amazing scientists out there coming up with profound findings and adding powerful contributions to all fields. I simply wish to highlight the fact that, in the mainstream world, science is “stuck,” or, perhaps more accurately, we have put a freeze on certain areas of science.
