The subject of Deepak Chopra came up in the conversation I've been having with an Atheist Science Teacher. He dismissed Deepak, saying - I'm afraid Deeprak Chopra is a not well regarded in Scientific Realist circles - he is a snake-oil salesman. the interview I had suggested that he look at was - http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=e_-_cuTdTbA RE-visiting this and looking at some other interviews etc with Deepak, I found myself wondering just what this teacher meant by 'snake oil salesman.' So I checked out Wikki. The result is that I have prepared another resource - about Deepak - as he is a great source for discussion and thought. I would recommend that it is used with GCSE and A'level RS and Philosophy students. Personally I think he is talking a lot of sense! - but perhaps that is what makes him so irritating to the Atheist scientists who tend to reject the concept of consciousness and spiritual truth.
