Rupert Sheldrake: Rebuttal To Being Banned By TEDx (2013) – 4 stars

This interview is about 30 minutes long. In it Sheldrake gives his rebuttal to the knee-jerk reaction reasoning behind which TEDx removed his controversial talk, The Science Delusion, from their Youtube channel. The host from Skeptiko plays Devil’s Advocate during part of the interview, playing the part of the anonymous TEDx panel that allegedly moved to censor Sheldrake’s talk. Sheldrake makes great points to dismantle his accusers’ claims, and goes on to give an intelligent, logical viewpoint on this idea that mainstream science is clinging to its beliefs as fervently as the followers of any religion would.
