Ten scientific dogmas dismantled (banned TED talk)

“The Science Delusion is the belief that science already understands the nature of reality in principal, leaving only the details to be filled in”

In this short talk, Rupert Sheldrake runs through the ten dogmas of modern science and explains how, in fact, none of them stand up scientifically.


On January 12th, 2013, Rupert gave a talk entitled The Science Delusion at TEDxWhitechapel. The theme for the night was Visions for Transition: Challenging existing paradigms and redefining values (for a more beautiful world).

In response to protests from two militant materialist bloggers in the US, the talk was later taken down by TED and placed in a special corner of their website. Before it was removed from their main website it had had about 35,000 views. Since it was “banned” it has been seen by at least half a million people.
