Deepak Chopra Continues Absurd Attacks On Evolutionary Science

Never let it be said that I am any less tolerant of anti-science views from the left than from the right. I tend to concentrate more on the anti-science attitudes from the right primarily because they have far more impact on legislation than those from the left  I have pointed out many examples of Choprawoo […]

Deepak Chopra Confuses Magic Tricks for Science

Add spoon bending to the catalog of bizarre beliefs which Deepak Chopra subscribes to. At IntentBlog, Chopra wrote: I have always maintained there is no such thing is supernatural or paranormal. All observed phenomena, if accurate, are natural and normal. We call something supernatural or paranormal when we can’t explain it. Once we know the […]

Deepak Chopra Embraces the Bogus

New Age opponent of science Deepak Chopra is at it again. (Previous posts on Chopra here.) The latest installment is Why Evolutionary Biology Embraces the Bogus (Part 1). There is little point in commenting on the bulk of this as one of those commenting at Huffington Post sums up the problem with, “a New Age […]

Deepak Chopra and Considerations of Us vs. Them

Yesterday I commented on Chopra’s latest posts at Huffington Post. Normally I am spared the trouble of writing very much to refute Chopra as various writers at the Science Blogs normally get to him before I do, but this time I was first. Pharyngla got to it today, and this post stems from a comment […]

Deepak Chopra’s False Alternative of Random Chance

Deepak Chopra is currently centering his hostility towards science on Richard Dawkins, author of The God Delusion. In these posts he demonstrates just how low he will go to try to get some affirmation of his beliefs from readers. His latest game is to set up choices between his bizarre views and a straw man […]

Orac Defends Skepticism From Choprawoo

While I’ve often criticized the rejection of science which has become common on the right, I have also pointed out that there is also some pseudo-science on the left. This has included numerous posts on Deepak Chopra. Chopra has recently pointed out how he monitors all the posts which mock him using Google Alerts.  He […]

More Chopra Woo on Alternative Medicine

Deepak Chopra is still passing off his anti-scientific nonsense at The Huffington Post, this time promoting mind-body medicine. He prefers vague ideas lacking evidence for methods of treatment which are subject to double blind studies and increasingly demanding proof of efficacy in this age of evidence-based medicine. I guess we shouldn’t expect better in a […]

Chopra Woo Versus Irresposible Astrologer

With all the talk of astrology and other bogus ideas over the past week or two, I really got a good laugh from this item emailed by a reader, via James Randi. Deepak Chopra, new age charlatan, takes on the age old favorite of charlatan, astrology. The question is raised of whether we should believe […]

Chopra Embraces Bogus Arguments on Evolution

Deepak Chopra concludes his two part post on Why Evolutionary Theory Embraces the Bogus (part one discussed here) with further evidence that he knows nothing of the science. The fundamental problem with Chopra’s argument is that he basis it on whether evolution can explain the brain’s response to music. There are a number of problems […]

Chopra Concludes, Responding to Criticism

Deepak Chopra has concluded his series of blog posts on The God Delusion by Richard Dawkins by responding to some of the comments on his previous posts. He ignores the  majority of critical responses, and still provides no evidence that he either has read or understands the writing of Richard Dawkins. (My previous posts on […]
