Parapsychology Journalism: The People, The Theory, The Science, The Skeptics
I’m happy to see that the scheduled protest has a clear plan set out for the day. It’s not going to be excessively long or disruptive. They will arrive, hold an organized demonstration to make their point and then go home. It’s a very civilized and rational way to conduct oneself. It’s . . . polite. I endorse this wholeheartedly. I am hoping against hope that this will be covered by the mainstream press. Here’s the press release from Set Science Free:
Set Science Free will hold a public rebuttal in front of TED’s offices at 250 Hudson Street, NYC on April 2nd, 2014 between 12-2pm.
The rebuttal is in regards to the segregation of Rupert Sheldrake’s TEDx Talk. This will be a filmed media event, so we encourage all those who join us to HAVE A ONE MINUTE STATEMENT PREPARED regarding the segregation and/or the issues of dogma in science as well as TED’s maintaining an anonymous scientific board. We will deliver the petition to TED on this day.
I am also encouraged to see more press as we get closer to the event. If you know of some press that the event is getting, please let me know.
Just as an update, the petition for everyone has reached a 100 signatures.
Paul Revis sent me an email update of the PhD list:
We have 200+, we don’t have exact number because we got so many non-phds and non-mds who signed our petition it’s requiring research to remove their names.
I’m glad They’re taking the time to do this properly. It should avert possible criticism from skeptics.
