At least I let him respond on my site

Chopra officially posts his denial of AIDS denialism and his critique of Professor Ceiling Cat Why Evolution Is True

in an act of cowardice, Chopra has turned off comments on thatpost. At least I let him respond on my site, and I ask him to reciprocate. He also failed to link to my original post, canada goose outlet parka so he denying an assertion that he won let hisreaders see.

I stand by my original post canada goose outlet montreal thataccused Chopra of denying that the virus was the cause of AIDS (something he now admits without also also admittingthat he was wrong). credentials (and denigrating mine) and saying that he now asserts that HIV is the AIDS. Which is it? Nor has heretracted his criticism of virus reducing drugs like AZT, or canada goose outlet phone number clarified his views about how thinking might cause AIDS. For a fuller explication of Chopra and obfuscation, I direct you to Bo Gardiner analysis of hisHIV/AIDS denialism on her website Under the Greenwood Tree.

If Chopra is interested in honest dialogue about science, I ask him to allow comments on his post. But I will be very surprised if he does, for he doesn want his readers to know the depth of criticism about his that has surfaced from me and other researchers and doctors.

His views are dangerous, forthey minimize the importance of the virus in AIDS, and maximize the value of thinking which (beyond those lifestyle changes that reduce the severity of the disease) hasn been shown to have any effect.

Ben Carson has an MD canada goose coats uk after his name too and it doesn appear to do him one wit of good when it comes to rational thinking. I wonder how Chopra sorts out MD rankings? canada goose outlet uk FWIW we had a fairly steady stream of med school students come through the canada goose outlet las vegas lab when I was doing canada goose victoria parka outlet research. Part of the program was a month or two canada goose outlet london uk stint in a research lab. All were smart but few understood anything about experiment design or result analysis. And why would they? They are in an MD mill getting as much stuff crammed in their canada goose outlet niagara falls heads as possible. An MD program does one thing well turns out generally educated practitioners who know where to turn for resources. Some go on from there and others don Nothing wrong with that but an MD in no way correlates with an advanced understanding of pathology.

All that canada goose outlet miami aside, though, the most telling thing is that Chopra published his response closed for comment.

Canada Goose Online Shorter Chopra: Not everyone who is exposed to canada goose outlet vancouver a virus gets sick. There mystery, therefore DEEPITY. Canada Goose Online

canada goose clearance sale Chopra views canada goose outlet store calgary are not only dangerous but slippery, because as I pointed out on one of the other threads he is speaking in deepities. The religious and spiritual often do this (consciously or unconsciously) in order to avoid accountability. They can offer the interpretation which fits the situation. In this canada goose sale uk case, that would be the one that successfully removes Chopra from the extraordinary part of his statements. canada goose clearance sale

uk canada goose know you canada goose outlet real think you understand what you thought I said but I not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant. material agent is never the cause of the disease. It may be the final factor in inducing the full blown syndrome in somebody who’s already susceptible. uk canada canada goose outlet goose

Canada Goose Outlet And how are we supposed to interpret this? This way: Canada Goose Outlet

Any sensible physician would advise that someone stay in good general health, eat a proper diet, practice good hygiene, and get sound sleep.

canada goose coats See how reasonable? And you can always pull even further away from the New Thought interpretation canada goose outlet florida by explaining that the of the disease was meant to include evolution and the laws of physics. Imagine Dr. Coyne leaving out evolution! canada goose coats

canada goose store There not a single pharma physician on the planet who dismiss the important of diet, exercise, sleep, and stress management for everybody, well or ill.

canada goose black friday sale Deepak may think this of his makes everything all better, because he dismissing his indiscretion and admitting the role HIV plays in AIDS. But, in reality, he doubling down on the real problem of his quackery. canada goose black friday sale

Canada Goose sale Yes, Deepak: full on unabashed quackery, for that what this by the host nonsense is that and yet more of your canada goose outlet shop trademarkable victim blaming. There no quantum cosmic mystery in why not everybody gets a cold when exposed to the same virus in the same manner, even if it unquestionably is a most significant subject of epidemiological research. We need to know the details, but we already know that the body and its immune systems have all sorts of buffer systems and points and what not not to mention the very canada goose outlet london real possibility in this particular experiment that the subjects had already been exposed to the virus strain in question and had already developed an immune response.

buy canada goose jacket For shame, Deepak blaming AIDS victims for canada goose outlet reviews their own disease. I known used car salesman with more honor and integrity than that. buy canada goose jacket

uk canada goose outlet Deepak is an apologetic He is one of those who constantly use science to rub and prove his religious BS! Everyone kmows that almost all apologists do that and by doing so they indirectly concede that science is the real barometer to measure the realities of the universe. Con men like him must keep canada goose outlet los angeles their livelihood going by coming up with weird sometimes absurd ideas and trying to prove them through science. They are a great threat to the health of a society and should be silenced. It a form of (ideological) afflicting societies and a great hindrance to the progress of science and technology! THEY ARE BRILLIANT MINDS GONE SOUR! WISH THEY USED THEM FOR SCIENCE, INSTEAD. uk canada goose outlet

canada goose uk outlet I believe that canada goose outlet 2015 this Chopra as a doctor should be treated about the same as creationist. Most of what they say is pure crap, with no evidence to support any of it and they certainly do not deserve the right to be on the same stage with any reputable scientists or doctors or anyone living in a reality based world. Guys like this love to even canada goose outlet website legit be seen as discussing something with a real scientist or doctor because they know it makes their followers think they actually know something. canada goose uk outlet

canada goose factory sale They will always make their money off the ignorance and gullibility of many people.

Canada Goose online then perhaps there never would been an AIDS crisis in the first place if my colleagues never contact traced those first cases, dying in those hospital beds in San Francisco in the late 70s? And if Montagnier Gallo never isolated the related viruses after that, perhaps there would have been no reason for encouraging anyone to get HIV tested?? We could avoided all this pain and suffering worldwide simply by not looking? Canada Goose online
