Dear Royal Ontario Museum ...

 
Indicate in the comments whether you'd like to sign this letter as a supporter of the Committee for the Advancement of Scientific Skepticismat the Center for Inquiry (Canada). Include your name, title, and affiliation. Email me if you'd rather not post a comment. (My name is "l.moran" and my domain is "utoronto.ca")

See Shame on the Royal Ontario Museum for more information about the event.
William Thorsell
Director, the Royal Ontario Museum
100 Queen's Park
Toronto, ON
M5S 2C6

Mr. Thorsell,

We at the Committee for the Advancement of Scientific Skepticism (CASS) at the Centre for Inquiry (Canada) and its supporters were dismayed  to learn that the Royal Ontario Museum will be sponsoring a talk by Deepak Chopra at the University of Toronto in connection with the Director's Signature Series: The Warrior Emperor and China's Terracotta Army.

While we fully support the concept of academic freedom, we are baffled by this invitation and wonder how it fits into the mandate of the museum to "serve as an advocate for science in the study of nature," as stated in your message on the ROM website.  Mr. Chopra's new age psycho-babble may be attractive to the general public, but by inviting him to speak at the ROM, you lend undeserved scientific credibility to his pseudo-scientific claims about quantum physics, psychology, chemistry and medicine. These claims are rightly rejected as absurd by the scientific community and by promoting them you tarnish the otherwise excellent scientific reputation of the Royal Ontario Museum.

CASS will be publishing the standard rebuttals of Deepak Chopra's fanciful quackery in order to help the public understand where he goes off the rails. Our hope is to turn this otherwise embarrassing event into a learning opportunity.  We are also contacting the sponsors of the event and the ROM's other private donors in order to voice our concern about Mr. Chopra's presentation. We would like the ROM to clarify how Mr. Chopra's visit fits into this lecture series, as it seems this is just another opportunity for him to promote his new book.  

We look forward to hearing from you.

 
Sincerely,

The Committee for the Advancement of Scientific Skepticism (CASS) at the Centre for Inquiry Canada

As a science educator and as a Canadian, I am horrified that a science museum would host Deepak Chopra whose only claim to fame is spouting nonsensical dribble that gullible idiots are desperate to hear (his writing is so bad it is 'not even wrong').

Dear Larry Moran,

Please do add my name to the statement by the Committee for the Advancement of Scientific Skepticism at the Center for Inquiry (Canada) to the Royal Ontario Museum, the latter which has inexplicably sponsored an upcoming lecture by the arch crackpot, Deepak Chopra.

That utterly disingenuous man has absolutely no business capitalizing upon science or the scientific community who is actually responsible for the hard work and genius expended on its flowering and the fruits of knowledge derived from it by the museum itself. ROM (as well as the University of Toronto) should be thoroughly embarrassed and ashamed of asking him to speak on their hitherto fine premises based, as it has appeared to have been for many decades, on SCIENCE, not on some obnoxious magical mysticism tour.

If this event comes to pass (and one does hope it might yet be thwarted) I would go further to encourage anyone who spends the exorbitant entrance fee to witness a talk by a cheap charlatan (however popular) to afterward vigorously demand full reimbursement from ROM, on the basis that the scientific content advertised was not delivered by the speaker engaged. ROM can EASILY argue breach of contract and failure to deliver the terms IF ROM did not realize from the START that they barked up the wrong money tree to begin with.

Perhaps that might help someone at ROM see that the promise of quick but handsome proceeds is not an excuse to swindle an imposter into a public science education establishment which owes its very existence to a baseline standard which Deepak Chopra so easily sneers at as he makes his many deposits into as many banks.

There is absolutely no excuse whatsoever for diluting science for public consumption, by dumbing it down, and especially by inviting a well recognized flagrantly hypocrite, double-talking con-artist - no matter how flamboyantly popular - as a means of "reaching out to the public"...if THAT, was, in point of actual fact, the aim of the ROM organizers.

It is despicable beyond belief. It suggests nothing less than that "public outreach" methods so many have begun to apply have long since passed the boundary of Hollywood marketing tactics definitely penetrating deeply into the territory of unbridled hokum. (The "fine art" of "whatever it takes").

Who ARE these people that science institutions hire, apparently helter-skelter (that is, on the basis of their powers of persuasion rather than upon their powers to communicate with any genuine appreciation of integrity) to 'preserve' a public interest in science?

The habit of fakery is evidently exceedingly tempting in our society, I'm afraid, perniciously so. Some strong 'medicine' must be brought to bear on it. A liberal dose of honesty in combination with integrity and courage are clearly indicated...yet these are already widely blocked by a cunning viral infection - yet nothing more than a mere social tradition - which coevolves to flout it at least as quickly as slowpoke scientists with a tincture of conceit respond (let's at least be that honest with ourselves). One doesn't need to belabor the obvious extent and extrapolation of that aspect. Especially when so much can be accomplished with a just a trivial bit extra administered directly from the horse's mouths.

Unfortunately, a strong majority of scientists support their respective institutions, universities and government facilities and whatever apparatus they construct to ease their workload - many, it must be soberly noted, are ultimately funded through taxpayer funding - because they perceive they have been relieved of their duty to help communicate their findings directly to the public.

It's a HORRIBLE situation, and academically indentured scientists by and large are blind to it.

I work to convey the true character of science to unsophisticated readers. Many elements of popular culture - such as Deepak Chopra - are utterly contrary to science and distort the ability of the general public to comprehend issues in a rational manner.

Mr. Chopra's resume includes many worthy credentials. Unfortunately, his credentials are overwhelmed by the content of his writings, lectures, and interviews. Such pseudo-intellectual muddled spiritualism is unworthy of a forum such as yours.
