Deepak chopra and richard dawkins
The Quantum Prophets: Richard Dawkins, Deepak Chopra and the spooky truth about their battle over God by Tom RostonRichard Dawkins and Deepak Chopra are two of the most famous Big Thinkers of our time. And yet their deeply acrimonious, decade-long battle over God, human consciousness and quantum healing has gone unchronicled until now. Dawkins, a best-selling author and evolutionary biologist who coined the term meme, has staked his name on the cause of militant atheism. Chopra, a mind-body guru with a global following that has included the likes of Michael Jackson and Lady Gaga, has increasingly set his sites on the scientific status quo.
Author Tom Roston seeks to uncover what lies beneath their provocative war of ideas in this intimate story of his search to understand his own spirituality and sciences hard questions. He travels from Toronto to California to the Quantock Hills in Somerset, England, to Puebla, Mexico, chasing these two alternately fascinating and infuriating men, wrestling with their ideas, and coming up with his own.
Tom Roston is a veteran journalist who began his career at The Nation and Vanity Fair magazines, before working at Premiere magazine as a senior editor. He is now a freelance writer and frequent contributor to The New York Times. He writes a regular blog about nonfiction filmmaking on PBS.org. He lives with his wife and their two daughters in New York City.

Deepak Chopra Slams Richard Dawkins' 'Naive Realism'
The first five minutes are plenty weird and superfluous , with a bunch of harlequins and pirates prancing about onstage. Chopra is an intensely irritating man, and willfully stupid—indeed, duplicitous—because his errors have been pointed out to him many times. Of course he has a right to blather as much as he wants, but thank Ceiling Cat that people like Dawkins, Shermer, and Harris call him out for his obscurantism. And what thwarts those plans? Soup: Holey Cow soup — French onion soup with beef stock topped with Emmentaler and sourdough which raises itself. Salad: Word Salad — some variation on the pasta salad theme, with alphabet noodles. Probably served with a reduced red wine sauce.

Yesterday’s debate between Dawkins and Chopra
When he wrote his best-seller, The God Delusion , Richard Dawkins expected to accomplish two aims that have proved to be remarkable failures. The first aim was social. He wanted to attract a horde of doubters, fence-sitters, and agnostics to gather their courage and join the atheist ranks. This never happened. There has been a quiet, steady decline in church attendance for at least fifty years in the US and Western Europe, and recently a noticeable bump in self-described atheists has occurred.
