Sheldrake’s Science Delusions

For some scientists, most notably and loudly professor Richard Dawkins, belief in God is a “delusion“. For at least one professed scientist, though, science is a “delusion”.

That professed scientist is Dr. Rupert Sheldrake.

Dr. Rupert Sheldrake’s new book is called The Science Delusion: Freeing the Spirit of Inquiry. It will be officially launched at the Great Hall of King’s College London, on 17 January 2012 at 7pm (and again, shortly afterwards, at 9.30 pm)

Dr. Sheldrake has also written, Sheldrakianly, about Dogs That Know When Their Owners Are Coming Home and the Sense Of Being Stared At.

Note: The new book is not to be confused with a book called The Science Delusion – Why God is real and science is religious myth, by Peter Wilberg. (2010)

BONUS: A video of Rupert Sheldrake making as much sense as he always does:

BONUS: A funtime question for recreational philosophers: If someone who says he is a scientist says that science is a delusion, is this a case of recursive delusion?
