UPDATE: A reader below notes, correctly, that Chopra apologized for what he said about Dawkins on this show. Good for him, though Chopra apparently has stopped “listening to his worst critics without being personally offended,” a lesson that, in this video, he says he learned two years ago. That said, I put this video up not to show his attack on Dawkins so much as to show what Chopra believes about the transcendent.
Here are two malefactors taking on Dawkins in a short clip from two years ago. First Dawkins appears, denies belief in God, and O’Reilly says “You’re wrong.” It’s funny: like kids saying, “Yes, there is!” “Is not!” “Is too.” But of course the burden of proof lies on Bill.
Then, in the bulk of the video, O’Reilly asks Chopra if he believes in God, and Deepak basically avows belief in a Abrahamic God—as well as free will (and I don’t think it’s compatibilist free will). How does he know there’s an omnipotent, omniscient “force”?, asks O’Reillly. Chopra says because his heart tells him so. The heart is a notoriously unreliable organ for reasoning.
Oh, and note that O’Reilly claims that Dawkins’s atheism doesn’t bother him (O’Reilly), when it clearly does.
