Video: Rupert Sheldrake

Rupert Sheldrake

If you, like me,  have an interest in science vs philosophy vs religion – Sheldrake questions scientist’s view that there are laws of nature –  Sheldrake says that these are not “laws” but rather “habits” and “resonances”

Acculterated  – Transcendence and the Limits of Science

this is Tony.V.S. ‘s reply …

For an interesting talk on science and the soul listen to Rupert Sheldrake in this speech he gave to an audience at the “Electric Universe” conference last month.

IMHO his speech is so good, that it (almost) should be compulsory viewing for anyone studying science.

RUPERT SHELDRAKE AT EU 2013—”SCIENCE SET FREE”

Many scientists like to think that science already understands the ways of the natural world. The fundamental questions are answered, leaving only the details to be filled in. The impressive achievements of science seemed to support this confident attitude. But recent research has revealed unexpected problems at the heart of physics, cosmology, biology, medicine and psychology.

Dr. Sheldrake is a biologist and author of more than 80 scientific papers and 10 books, including Science Set Free (September 2012).

this is my twin sister’s response to watching the video – i like it  so i’m adding it to the post…

Well I watched the whoooole thing. Pretty interesting. He has a very open mind. The Bible “says” that our greatest understandings are lower than His lowest understandings. The “scientific” world will never reach a true understanding of what’s ACTUALLY going on around us. This is what I think. I love to analyze like you do, but I was also thinking “Let’s try to utilize” a little more of what God has given us to work with. I’m not talking about destroying. I’m just talking about the flow of the river. Instead of analyzing why the current flows, we might just get in a [God given] boat and enjoy the ride He has set before us.

    • i think he looks like allen alda especially the eyes
      i think science is starting to look at the strange and unquantifiable phenomena
      the truth cannot be held down forever – it has too much energy
      good metaphor, the God boat.
      don’t analyze anything you don’t want to understand, just enjoy if that is what you desire
      analyze/utilize cute rapper rhyme
      if feel like you have something in mind when you use the word “we” like you might be thinking about the state of the world right now.

  2. “Science set free” title without going to the video just yet is debatable. Science will prove something and on and on and one. It’s just like splitting atoms. If this talk is about God, then, there is God in science and No science in God. Based on this statement: God set free not Science set free. I will watch the video later.

    • I hope you do. It is very interesting. He talks about assumptions that science makes that are very questionable. I don’t think science will ever discover God, but it can discover the acts and actions of God. We can’t see the wind, but we do experience it’s presence through our senses. And science is in the business of finding out what can be discovered through the senses. I don’t discount science because at this time it leans toward atheism. It can’t stay there forever.
