Deepak Chopra sent this to me, and to a number of other people, thanking us for “inspiring” it. The only way I could have inspired it is if Chopra were remote viewing the contents of my toilet this morning.
It’s nonsense through and through, with Chopra babbling about “akashic fields” and “quantum” and psychic powers, but what I thought was interesting was his overall claim.
William Lane Craig abuses physics to claim that because physics has demonstrated the Big Bang, and that our universe has a beginning, it has confirmed the truth of the Bible, which states right up front that there was an “In the beginning…” (it’s a real leap from modern cosmology to a bland statement in an old book). Here, Chopra is claiming that the universe — or it’s progenitor state — is eternal, as claimed by physicists, thereby confirming his newagey beliefs.
I don’t think any physicist should waste their time explaining the reality of cosmological theories to these guys, but it would be wonderful to just put them in a room and have them blather at each other. Where the rest of us can ignore them.
