Old intro: TED stands for Technology, Entertainment and Design. Here is a link to their homepage. Here is part of their mission statement:
TED is a global community, welcoming people from every discipline and culture who seek a deeper understanding of the world. We believe passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and, ultimately, the world. On TED.com, we’re building a clearinghouse of free knowledge from the world’s most inspired thinkers — and a community of curious souls to engage with ideas and each other, both online and at TED and TEDx events around the world, all year long.
TED is owned by a nonprofit, nonpartisan foundation. Our agenda is to make great ideas accessible and spark conversation.
It sounds like a great idea, doesn’t it? Except, TED has taken to banning certain of their talks from their You Tube channel. Here is one of them.
Note that in this TED Conversation on Sheldrak’s presentation, several critics point out that TED was unable to refute Sheldrake directly, and instead has used the usual tactics, in this case nitpicking over the minor details, as grounds for having the video removed.
Title: Rupert Sheldrake – The Science Delusion BANNED TED TALK (YT link) Uploaded by Revolution Love Evolve.
TEDx – Rupert Sheldrake – The Science Delusion (2013) – 5 stars
This is a banned TEDx Talk, coming in at just over 18 minutes. In this presentation, Sheldrake points out several of the dogmas that today’s scientists persistently stick with, despite the availability of evidence to contradict them. Most interesting are Sheldrake’s contentions that the speed of light and gravity fluctuate. His conversations with fellow scientists go on to prove they are hiding such truths under the rug. My opinion is that there can be no constants in a constantly evolving universe, and especially where Quantum Physics and Holographic Universe Theory come in. This was a great Talk, enough that I wish it had been a good bit longer.
