Scientist Sheldrake exposes Richard Dawkins as a Fundamentalist Pseudoskeptic
Thanks for posting Sheldrake's analysis of Dawkins behavior, nik ! :)

There's certainly "food for thought" in Sheldrake's assessment ...

... a lot to chew on for a two minute plus video.

Speaking of "food" ... :D

... your post has reminded me of a Richard Dawkins story: :rolleyes:

Richard Dawkins was taking a walk through the woods.

"What majestic trees!"

"What powerful rivers!"

"What beautiful animals!" Richard said to himself.

As he was walking alongside the river he heard a rustling in the bushes behind him.

Richard Dawkins turned to look.

He saw an eight foot grizzly bear charging towards him. :yikes:

He ran as fast as he could up the path.

He looked over his shoulder and saw that the bear was closing in on him.

He looked over his shoulder again, and the bear was even closer.

He tripped and fell on the ground.

Dawkins rolled over to pick himself up but saw that the grizzly bear was right on top of him, reaching for him with his left paw and raising his right paw to strike him.

At that instant Richard Dawkins cried out: "Oh my God !!"

Time stopped.

The bear froze.

The forest was silent.

As a bright light shone upon Dawkins, a Voice came out of the sky: "You deny My existence for all of these years, teach others I don't exist, and even credit creation to a cosmic accident. Do you expect Me to help you out of this predicament? Am I to count you as a believer?"

Dawkins, looking directly into the light said, "It would be hypocritical of me to suddenly ask You to treat me as a believer now, but perhaps You could make the BEAR a believer?"

"Very well," said the Voice.

The light went out.

The sounds of the forest resumed.

And then ... the bear dropped his right paw, brought both paws together and bowed his head and spoke:

"Dear Lord, bless this food, which I am about to receive from thy bounty and through your grace ... amen."

thanks for the video.

In many ways, these two men and their belief systems typify the masonic schism. The Enlightenment gave rise to two prominent views of the natural world. The Rosicrucian/Royal Society tradition of empiricism, measurement and naturalistic atheism and the Gnostic tradition that matter and the observable measurable universe is somehow a bi-product of a larger reality.

I believe Sheldrake is/was a member of the Theosophical Society. So, to be fair, he has his own brand of fundamentalism to rival Dawkin's hyper-materialist skepticism.
