Another worthwhile read by Rupert Sheldrake, a recent article in the Huffington Post. In “Why bad science is like bad religion”, Sheldrake criticises the way intolerant skepticism insists on materialism as being the only ‘rational’ philosophical position in science. I believe Sheldrake to be the finest philosopher of science going round today. Note that he is not advocating blind adherence to religion, but seeking to establish more tenable hypotheses, theories and models which support the totality of data now available to modern science. Materialism fails to do this, and by a very great distance.
