Rupert Sheldrake, the internationally renowned environmental biologist, explains in his book ‘The Science Delusion’ how materialism has gradually hardened into a kind of anti-Christian principle, claiming authority to dictate theories and to veto enquiries on topics that don’t suit it, such as unorthodox medicine, let alone religion.
Sheldrakes’ insistence on the need to attend to possible wider ways of thinking is surely right. His engaging and provocative book and this talk will make you question the basic assumptions of western science.
