Two articles by Victor Stenger that woos like Deepak Chopra and Robert Lanza should read and try to understand

The late physicist Victor Stenger didn’t like the ideas of Deepak Chopra, Robert Lanza, and other woos. So he tried to debunk their thought paradigms. In the two articles below you can all see that professor Stenger has got many very good arguments against Chopra, Lanza and others who believe in a soul and that consciousness survives the physical death of the human body.

1) See http://www.csicop.org/si/show/quantum_quackery/ . An article by Victor Stenger. A quote: Quantum physics is claimed to support the mystical notion that the mind creates reality. However, an objective reality, with no special role for consciousness, human or cosmic, is consistent with all observations.

2)See http://www.colorado.edu/philosophy/vstenger/Quantum/QuantumConsciousness.pdf . Yet another article by Victor Stenger. A quote: The overwhelming weight of evidence […] shows not a hint of a violation of reductionist, local, discrete, nonsuperluminal, nonholistic relativity and quantum mechanics – with no fundamental involvement of human consciousness other than in our own subjective perception of whatever reality is out there. Of course, our thinking processes have a strong influence on what we perceive. But to say that what we perceive therefore determines, or even controls, what is out there is without rational foundation.
