Let me put it mildly. Mr Deepak Chopra’s post on Dawkins book is an intellectual abomination. [via Pharyngula] The kind of vomit only a cauldron of idiocy can spew out. Chopra calls a muddled rant on color perception as a thought experiment and asks us to give up on scientifically analyzing the workings of our brain. The comments do a good job of showing why his argument is non-sensical so I won’t do that here. Instead, let me suggest a thought experiment. Read Chopra’s post with a critical and rational eye. I can predict with certainty that you will imagine yourself to be pulling your hair out, ripping and throwing your right hand at the monitor, banging your head on the table repeatedly and swearing like no one has ever done.
I was spot on. Wasn’t I? This is known as The Chopra Effect and is considered to be most harmful effect a human can have on another.
