Try to imagine this debate without Sam Harris being there to correct Deepak. It would have seemed like Deepak was making good points. Thank you SAM HARRIS!


Does God have a future? "Nightline" tackles this and other delicate questions related to faith and spirituality in a "Face-Off" to air Tuesday, March 23.

Deepak Chopra, a physician and best-selling author of "How to Know God," and prominent scholar, philosopher and writer Jean Houston, will face-off against Michael Shermer, founding publisher of "Skeptic" magazine, and Sam Harris, author of "The End of Faith."

The panelists will debate the tension between God and science. Is there scientific proof that God exists or has science made it so that God is no longer relevant?

Chopra and Houston contend that the universe is proof that intelligence is at the heart of creation and that a person needs to look beyond what can be seen and touched, while Shermer and Harris argue science and biology can explain what is happening to people when they pray, meditate and believe in God and that evolution can explain why our beliefs developed.

Sam Harris is priceless, the way he clearly and quietly makes his point is brilliant, poor old Deepak made himself look a raging idiot with his shouting.

I have never ever wanted to hit someone in the face as much as I want to hit Chopra.

"Science tells us that nature is a discontinuity, an on/off phenomenon. There are gaps between every two ons, where you find a field of possibility, a field of pure potentiality. " WHAT THE FUCK???

The hilarious thing is that Sam Harris, the atheist skeptic, is a much calmer, more collected and better meditator that Deepak is.

This should be titled "Does Deepak ever let other people talk?"

When I watch Deepak talk all I imagine is just air coming out of a big hole in his head. The only benefit of that air is that it will be utilized by some plant later on.
