    New stuff in neuroscience

    That's so patently false though. Throw out thoughts and consciousness and you throw out every bit of science, as every scientific discovery as been found thanks to thinking. If one actually denies thoughts and consciousness, then surely that is awfully close to solipsism in that everything is...

    No thought at all. That's odd, he must have had to use thought to write his books.

    How Scientific Censorship Works

    Thanks again for showing that you are in denial. I guess those nearly 6 million people who have the disease will suddenly get well. Moreover, I'd actually like to ask why people are questioning this? What does one get out of denying AIDS?

    How Scientific Censorship Works

    It does cause AIDS, that this is even questioned has directly led to the deaths of thousands in South Africa and elsewhere. This has happened. Crying censorship because one has been halted for promoting dangerous bullshit doesn't cut the mustard, sorry. This isn't like parapsychology. People's...

    A Breakthrough?

    How Scientific Censorship Works

    "The dogma that HIV causes AIDS" Ah wonderful, AIDS Denial. Yes that's working well. In fact, it's working so brilliantly that thanks to Thabo Mbeki's 'insight' into this very subject, 20% of the South African population have aids. And as it turns out, Deusberg advised that scumbag of a...

    Dr Oz under attack

    I wonder why with an attitude like that. In that sentence you seem to mock the length and then say that I am being defensive. It's hard not to defend oneself when being attacked. I Again, you display a profound arrogance here, you confidently imply in that post that you are categorically...

    Dr Oz under attack

    - This is rich coming from you I must say. The whole time I have been here, I have regularly seen you so vociferously attack every part of the current paradigm, and anyone who questions your opinions. You don't seem to even consider that there is a lot about the current view that is probably...

    Dr Oz under attack

    Just because he's a qualified doctor/scientist doesn't mean he isn't capable of spouting utter shit. Look at James Watson's bollocks on race and intelligence. In any case, Dr Oz is a Fraud.

    Mod+ Brains on Fire: Dr. Steven Novella Explains, "The Mind Is the Fire of the Brain"

    people like certainty, it's much more comfortable to be that way. As Voltaire said, "doubt is not a pleasant condition, but certainty is absurd"

    Mod+ Brains on Fire: Dr. Steven Novella Explains, "The Mind Is the Fire of the Brain"

    The thing is though. Human memory is different to a computer much different. When you store a film on a computer or a file, it is identical whenever you open it. Whenever you watch say Star Wars on a hard drive, the death star always blows up. Or if you play a justin beiber song, it consistently...

    A Breakthrough?

    Relating to my earlier point. I don't particularly like the idea of a fully objective world either, but unfortunately, my preferences do not dictate what certain QM research may imply.

    A Breakthrough?

    Maybe because they hate the idea of a world that is not fully objective. Like it or not Quantum physics is the most successful scientific endeavour we've ever embarked on. And as Jim Al-Khalili said in his programme last week "the weirdness isn't going to go away"

    Personally I thought that this was one of the most measured and interesting interviews of the series. I found Storr very reasonable to be honest, much more so than many of the other guests both pro and skep.

    this would almost prove that panpsychism is true. Or some sort of sentience underlines all of nature.
