Rupert Sheldrake Destroys Dawkins Dillusion in Banned TED-x Talk

Brass Check TV

Science: “A collection of prejudices which are fed to us with a porridge spoon before our 18th year” 

Albert Einstein said that.

This is my first encounter with Rupert Sheldrake, but I have read a number of Graham Hancock’s books. I don’t agree with everything Graham Hancock writes and he is often inflammatory and controversial, but I find his work interesting and thought-provoking. TED seems to have forgotten the part about the talks being “designed to inspire conversation, exchange and immediate action around ideas worth spreading – all in a creative and casual setting.”

I think the attempt by TED to censor Mr. Sheldrake’s and Mr. Hancock’s presentations is reprehensible and completely against the spirit of their tagline (“Ideas Worth Sharing”) and their stated mission (“spreading ideas”). They conveniently left out some bits. Apparently, the tagline is actually “Ideas TED Thinks Are Worth Sharing” and the real mission is “Spreading only the ideas TED approves of.”

They have arrogated the right to judge the value of thoughts and ideas. They have arrogated the right to choose what we hear and learn. They have arrogated the right to think for us.

That’s not cool, at all. In fact, that really ticks me off. So I’m making the videos available to the public and they’re free to share…

    A brief summary of the fallacies of modern pseudo-science can be viewed here: http://essential-intelligence-network.blogspot.com/2011/12/globalist-war-on-science-approaches.html

  • A brief (or maybe extended) summary of the fallicies of modern materialism can be viewed at any of the militant atheistic websites. http://whyevolutionistrue.wordpress.com/

    No one in this group of thinkers wants to entertain the notion that there could be another non-material field of natural science like gravity or magnetism, which stems from us. They are so left-brain oriented that they have no clue. And I support granting them their ignorant wish.

    I find it difficult to respect and take your writing seriously when you take an Einstein quote and change it completely for your own agenda…
    The actual quote is “Common sense is the collection of prejudices acquired by age eighteen.” Not science… it also has not been 100% verified. Be careful what you are writing if you want your readers to take you as genuine. This poorly written article is a disgrace to the many devoted supporters of Rupert Sheldrake and Graham Hancock.
