    wtf chopra no need 2 b childish

  • George Faraj May 13, 2014 at 1:28 am

    So many words come out of Chopra’s and Houston’s mouths, and so little
    content. The very definition of “woo.”

  • Charles Davis May 13, 2014 at 1:34 am

    damn he has some major bling on his eyeglasses lol

  • Haures Bogdan May 13, 2014 at 1:52 am

    What is the evidence of god? – Deepak: because pizza! -Audiance: YEYYY
    clap, clap clap!

  • garreth davis May 13, 2014 at 2:23 am

    haha harris’ face at 1:33:33 says it all

  • smartermelon May 13, 2014 at 2:32 am

    Jean Houston added nothing to the debate, at all. Deepak is the face of
    woo, but it’s interesting to hear someone struggle so hard to make
    mysticism fit into the material world. Prove your god, spirit, or whatever
    name you give your fantasy, exists, or come back when you’ve got some
    actual evidence we can deal with. Even Deepak’s son, Gotham, knows his dad
    is promoting his crap for financial gain. I don’t know why people try so
    hard to fit in some supernatural numbers into an equation when real numbers
    already work. Where the equation doesn’t work, we wait until it does, not
    just make stuff up.

    God does exist. In fact there are many gods. One for every person who
    believes in one. God is an alter ego to all believes in god. When you pray,
    you speak to yourself. You both have the same ideas and opinions, because
    you are god. If you don’t believe in god then that alter ego does not exist
    within your mind. God’s existence is a fact in the mind of the people who
    believe in he she it.

    Fuck, i’ve watched so many debates now and this is so extremly hard to
    watch because of that fucking Chopra! He always raises his voice, always
    interrupts others and always talks woowoo

    Great debate – thanks for uploading and the editing (if you did it) –
    concentrating on the important bits only

    The best New Age thinker to listen to is Terrance Mckenna in my opinion.
    Check him out if you haven’t – he really turned me away from being so
    orthodox in my following of science. This is not to say that science isn’t
    an amazing epistemology, but we DO as atheists tend to overly neglect human
    experience as a means of learning. Mckenna doesn’t talk about any old human
    experience though, he uses DMT and mushrooms as a window into reality like
    scientists use their instruments. It sounds whacky, but no one makes a
    stronger case then him regarding the power of psychedelics and what they
    can potentially tell us about reality. If anything, his speculations alone
    are both penetrating and plausable enough to at least make you doubt that
    science has made any real ground concerning the deeper questions of life.
    Plus, I have yet to hear someone who has a stronger command for the English
    language than Mckenna – he is utterly brilliant, and you will realise that
    immediately upon listening.

    I like how this is a less structured debate compared to others. While not
    becoming chaotic

  • monkeysee monkeyso May 13, 2014 at 3:30 am

    Chopra is such a tool.

    Deepak is unbearable.

    explanations are the best explanations”
    And, of course, the simplest explanation is that the entire universe was
    created by an all knowing, all seeing, all powerful, invisible, intangible,
    unknowable god.

    After spending too much time watching silly debates on this channel, the
    inane ramblings of Deepak and Houston are refreshing. I needed a good

  • Robert Jensen May 13, 2014 at 5:28 am

    A lot of pissing matches in this one…..

  • Quinton Mendoza May 13, 2014 at 5:50 am

    Deepak needs to reassess his argumentative strategy. He sounds
    illegitimate 95% of the time pointing fingers like that and raising his
    voice. Its a strategy that Hitler utilized to get the people listening in
    a passionate mind set.

  • matt jenks May 13, 2014 at 5:58 am

    Chopra is NOT new age

  • Erik Sanz May 13, 2014 at 6:20 am

    I feel that Deepak Chopra didn’t answer Sarah’s question. I might be wrong.

  • TierrAzzul May 13, 2014 at 6:30 am

    It’s sad… sounds like the atheists don’t understand how CONSCIOUSNESS is
    central to the UNIVERSE.
    SPIRIT… SOUL…is very hard to measure… especially to MATERIALISTS.
    They are trying to mechanically DISMISS what can take an ETERNITY to
    We have to learn from a history of CONSCIOUS journeys…
    Hare Krishna… Amen.

  • InvisibleMan542 May 13, 2014 at 6:52 am

    the hipster wars, ugh!….. Religion is for followers, New Age mindessly
    sensationalistic unphilosophical crap is for followers, and scientism is
    for followers. And political labels are for followers. One thing that
    disgusts me with hipsters (among many things), they all wanna promote
    themselves as champions of individuality but they are all trendy hipsters
    who jump on whatever the hot trend is, the vegan shit, the liberal shit,
    the only things these atheistic “skeptic” types are the least bit skeptical
    of are politically unpopular ideas…. Their whole platform is attacking
    religion and supporting LGBT issues, well religion is too easy to attack
    (it’s like picking on retards) and while I have no personal issue with
    LGBT, I think sometimes pseudoskeptics tend to get a bit carried away on
    some of this shit if that’s the only things they are willing to be
    skeptical about, they only support popular causes and only become skeptical
    over unpopular ideas. Sad.

  • Efrain Hernandez May 13, 2014 at 6:53 am

    damn.. sam harris has a command of the english language like few have had.

  • Missikech Kechqua May 13, 2014 at 7:02 am

    Wow look at Chopra, especially at 22:56, he appears angry, something his
    moon bug followers accuse anyone who disagrees with their bullshit. 

  • Blazer May 13, 2014 at 7:06 am

    The guy with the glasses is retarded, he is the reason new age looks bad.

  • FrankLightheart May 13, 2014 at 7:07 am

    First of all, I have to say that it’s refreshing to listen to a theistic
    debate where the religious proponents fully except modern scientific
    discoveries. I have witnessed SO much frustration from
    scientifically-minded debaters as their opponents continually
    misunderstand, misrepresent, and stubbornly refuse to accept scientific
    evidence. And to hear a theist say, “Big Bang: happened”, “Evolution:
    real”, “Great Flood: myth” made me so grateful.

    However, that old frustration has been replaced with a new frustration over
    trying to cut through all the flowery, foggy, wishy washy, New Age woo
    speak, to pin them down on what they actually believe and why. I mean, just
    WHAT exactly is it about the way we conduct scientific discourse today that
    Deepak takes exception to?! I can’t figure it out!

  • Guy De Vos May 13, 2014 at 7:13 am

    Awesome debate. Thanks for sharing. 

  • George Thomas May 13, 2014 at 7:25 am

    Did Deepak refer to John Searl? John Searl is a free energy crack pot.

  • Neutral Savage May 13, 2014 at 7:55 am

    By being extremely neutral and observing people.. I believe, human beings
    need 2 things to live..
    1 is to understand the universe, the world they live in. And 2 is to find a
    goal to live in that universe..
    Religion is 1 and 2 .
    Science is 1 depending on the 2.
    Philosophy is searching for 1 and 2.

  • azrnzala May 13, 2014 at 7:58 am

    Bah, an infinite consciousness creator god is sooo 1 year ago. Come on
    Deepy, get with the times! Infinite-dimensional finite consciousness
    creator gods are in now! … Crazy hippy bullshit.
