Rupert Sheldrake and Graham Hancock axed from TED talks channel!

Totally disgusting.

Open for discussion: Graham Hancock and Rupert Sheldrake from TEDxWhitechapel

After due diligence, including a survey of published scientific research and recommendations from our Science Board and our community, we have decided that Graham Hancock’s and Rupert Sheldrake’s talks from TEDxWhitechapel should be removed from distribution on the TEDx YouTube channel.

We’re not censoring the talks. Instead we’re placing them here, where they can be framed to highlight both their provocative ideas and the factual problems with their arguments. See both talks after the jump.

All talks on the TEDxTalks channel represent the opinion of the speaker, not of TED or TEDx, but we feel a responsibility not to provide a platform for talks which appear to have crossed the line into pseudoscience.

  1. Disgusting or revealing? It seems they are being forced to expose their own positions and for those used to hiding in broad daylight, that could get very uncomfortable, especially if their staff starts taking notice and finds they have to re-evaluate their own position within the group.
