This mini-documentary by Mike Adams the Health Ranger exposes the false philosophy underpinning most of modern science. It explains why science is rooted in evil and destruction while harming life on our planet: GMOs, vaccines, psychiatric drugs, nuclear weapons -- they've all been pursued and promoted under the brand of "science." And yet, shockingly, modern scientists do not believe human beings are conscious beings. They claim we are all just "biological robots" which provides the philosophical pretext for genocide.

I think the arguments here are being done a disservice by assigning moral value to science instead of to the use of science (technology: the use of science). Whatever you call truth ... science, knowlege, truth, scientific principle, laws of the universe ... call them what you may ... these are not things that act, but are acted upon. There is no verb such as "use" that is implied in any of these terms. When you assign morality to them you rob that morality from it's rightful owner: the thing that does the acting which in general is "us", humanity. Corporations and individuals also wrongfully assign morality to science to justify the technology ... is it any better to do the same in order to condemn a specific technology? No, the morality belongs with the technology or application of knowledge, not with the knowledge itself. As I'm sure your recall Immanuel Kant laid the groundwork for this epistemological analysis with his defining that morality lies with the agent ... morality

This video is so full of nonsense about having no 'soul' would mean people are mindless I'm not even going to comment on it. But if you think you have free will, just try to want something you don't want. Just try to want to jump from a plane at 10.000 feet without parachute, or try to want to eat a sandwich full of maggots, buy the neighbors cars you don't currently want, etcetera. It's not gonna happen. Everything you want and choose is decided on in your subconscious brain and your thoughts are just the outer layer of what's the outcome of unconscious processes.

The subconscious mind would readily pee in its own glass of water, then find ways in which it could remove the taste and make reason why it is contaminting its own substance before drinking. The conscious mind would simply not pee in its own glass. Stephen hows the water?

Furthermore, all Hawking was denying was the existence of "Free Will" as some choice-maker controlling my brain that is completely independent of the physical universe. Health ranger is immediately equating the belief that consciousness is a purely physical, "merely" real phenomena with the belief that consciousness doesn't exist. He would be hard pressed to find anyone who actually believes this, Stephen Hawking included. This reminds me of an explanation on lesswrong.com called "How an Algorithm feels from the Inside", of why people will actually get into the debate about whether trees falling in deserted forests actually make sounds.

Grrr... The comments seem to filter out links. I was trying to link to a couple of very insightful articles that relate to this question. Proposing the existence of a "consciousness-stuff" that exists outside of the physical universe is really not likely to be right. The question of "what is the cause of the phenomena in my head that I call consciousness?", seems mysterious, but then again so did gravity, fire, animal locomotion, and the origin of the species. All of these "mysterious questions" had non-mysterious answers, so we should be very, very skeptical of proposed answers that seem mysterious in this case as well.

@Cburrows: See what I mean about the unstated word limit? hehe In any case, apologists like Craig are essentially professional rhetoriticians, so it's not surprising that a physicist might fare poorly. This is why more and more people in the skeptical community are counseling scientists not to bother engaging in debates. Unlike religious and New Age pundits, their expertise is in dealing with factual matters, not manipulating crowd psychology.

I agree, Hawkin's ideas are dangerous. To believe there is no spirit, no soul, then humans can more easily become disposable.... labeled as mere animals.... slaves.... easier to manipulate. We are polar opposite of programmed robots. (those of us who are self-aware) We are choosing our paths all the time. "Choosing" is a part of who we are as beings. We are creative at our core, creating our destinies all the time.

Excellent documentary! Ths question 'What is consciousness?' propelled me out of my career as a molecular biologist and onto the spiritual path. I have not looked back since and this question has driven my quest. I personally think that the brain is like a modem connecting us to our mind and spirit, which transcend physical reality and the grasp of physics.

Provocative, well thought out and reasonable argumentation—a truly awesome presentation from my perspective! It appears like Stephen Hawking bases his assumption about life on his own experience. His brain is unusually one-dimensional in the ability to think and reason, and he uses his brilliant, yet limiting, knowledge of physics to “prove” that all humans function the same way. Too often, people’s ideas simply become the framework to create a name for themselves and feed their ego. They have nothing to do with pure science, but resemble an intellectual religion that attracts people who want to be viewed as smart. I really get the scripture that reads “the world's wisdom is foolishness with God.” (1 Corinthians 3:19)

It looks like there's an unstated length limit, and the 2nd portion of what I said got cut off. The narrator gets it completely wrong when he claims a naturalistic world-view is a good rationale for the exploitation of animals in society. Quite the contrary: religion has traditionally been the main method of justification of the the dualistic, human-vs-animal mentality - as animals are "soulless" beasts of burden put here essentially for God's chosen ones - IE, us. Dawkins himself has admitted that in a world where all living things are united in having descended from a common ancestor, defending the notion that humans have any sort of ethically-founded "right" to use animals as we please becomes very tricky.

@vaytw - "What I'm hearing in this video sounds a lot more like Deepak Chopra-esque New Age spiritualism, which really isn't very that distinguishable from Judeo-Christianity or what-have-you." Uh, Judeo-Christianity is much different than Deepak Chopra-esque New Age spiritualism (whatever that actually is). Dr. William Lane Craig debated physicist Dr. Lawrence Krauss about 6 weeks ago (video and audio on YouTube) in which Krauss does very well at demonstrating just how ridiculous scientism is. I'm glad to see Mike recognizing the absurdity of scientism as well. Hawking's first chapter of The Grand Design is where he goes off on this notion that philosophy is dead, yet the same chapter is titled 'The Mystery Of Being' which is itself a philosophical question of why there something instead of nothing. All Hawking and Mlodinow did was redefine the questions in a fashion that allows them to suggest the answers. Of course, ultimately they've just created a 'Particle Physics

I'm a little surprised that a website that purports to defend nature is so hostile to the naturalistic explanation of consciousness! What I'm hearing in this video sounds a lot more like Deepak Chopra-esque New Age spiritualism, which really isn't very that distinguishable from Judeo-Christianity or what-have-you. Well, not that I blame you... determinism sits very uncomfortably with a lot of folks. If you think it through, though - there's nowhere else to go. The belief in a "ghost in the machine" is no different than a belief in a god or gods. In fact, I'd say the former belief is merely a microcosm of the latter. There's a tiny, irreduceable "me" sitting in the command chair in one of my brain cells, piloting the ship like Captain Kirk running the Enterprise. Meanwhile, God is doing the same from his "bridge" up in Heaven, except the ship He's running is the UFS Universe. It's really just squishy way to beg the question and doesn't get one off the hook by any means. If a

So, here's the /big/ problem with this guy's premise. (Just watched the video). He really /wants/ to believe that there's a non-physical mind/soul/spirit, whatever. And he /wants/ to believe in free will. As a result, he's upset that physics has proven things about the universe that make the "soul" unlikely. More over, he insists on the existence of a thing (the soul) that has never been observed to exist. And, he then proceeds to take exception to scientific determinism because it is unpleasant and inconvenient to him. Just because determinism and the absence of "free will" is unpleasant to contemplate and sociologically difficult doesn't mean it's not true. We don't get to, in science, just believe things because they're comfortable. We believe things because they're proven to be true. He then proceeds to claim that all this leads to a world view that enables genocide. I've never heard a notion more ridiculous. He would lead us to believe that, without the fluffy make believe nonsens

Health Ranger, We are not mechanical meat but niether are we meatless projections of consciousness. We are always and already both....and any thought system whether in the sciences or philosophy that fails to allow the necessary ambiguity into the equation to recognize this truth, ultimately fails. Consequently, you shouldn't use your intellectual flexibility to influence those less flexible, to subscribe to un-balanced, unsound, extreme philosophies, be they in matters of health or politics. If it is righteousness and truth you pursue, then embrace sincerity, humility, self-ego destruction, and the preciousness of the consciousness, humanity, and innocence of your readers to a greater degree.

Great video Mike. Interesting that without the big questions put forward by philosophy there would not be written physical law. Philosophy is the vangaurd that forwards science. Physics is a documentation of what we have discovered and can measure in the physical universe. To attemped to disregard philosophy is to attemped to stop any further Ideas that can create new discoveries in science. To say philosophy has not kept up with physics is to say ideas and plans for buildings has not kept up with their being built.

Hey Mike, Awesome video. I also disagree with a philosophy that leads to the concept of "precrime." Here is why. I believe that at the quantum level the universe is like a giant computer that calculates its next step through its very existence. In other words, it takes the sum of the whole universe to create what will happen next. The universe is what it is with all its parts and creates what will be by virtue of all its parts. Everything begets the next moment of everything. Nothing less will do. I’ve not read the two books mentioned, but there must be an allowance for the fact that it is the nature of probability that we don’t know what is going to happen next. We have to wait to see what DOES actually happen next. This is why we go about smashing particles into each other – so we CAN see what happens. At the quantum level, the universe is anything but deterministic. It is probabilistic. Since our brains occupy this same universe, it stands to reason that they t

Thank you! It is a pity that a few of the ego-driven people who commented above, also seem to think they know it all better than (you or) anyone else. Why cannot people just absorb all information gratefully, good or bad, true or untrue and make up their own minds without having to thump down those who are trying to help others? Not all of us following your research are physicists and therefore we can easily be misled by their fame or jargon. We need objective information if we want to get to the truth. I would like to see any of your critics give the world the dedicated info that you have done so far. This was a fantastic video exposing yet another part and view of the wondrous puzzle of life, the why, when, where and how, which of course we will never know as we are only part of the whole and thus thankfully don´t need to be in control everything. Let´s leave that up to God eh?

I have to write a little about someone who's views on philosophy and humanity differs very much from Mr Hawking's. In my opinion there is one great philosopher in our time - and that is Deepak Chopra. Read his brilliant books How To Know God, Life After Death, The Third Jesus and Buddha. To me reading these books have been great adventures of discovering, learning and understanding million things about mind, soul, infinite consciousness, free will, love, god - and of course myself. Mindblowing. These books all made me both laugh and cry. There were unexpected trips down memory lane, moments when everything just felt almost overwhelming - like AHA! WOW!! - moments of gentle summer rain, but also of travelling across the universe at the speed of light. Deepak Chopra understands things, he KNOWS things, he writes beautifully - and he is such a good teacher. "The God-Particle" is alive and well.

This is so brilliant. I eagerly await part two and welcome an ongoing series. Because of crucial critical media like this, I've given up the idiot box for the web. The problem with physical academic minds is that such learned folks earn their credentials via memory work and information retention rather than visionary enlightenment. Such equation based knowledge is rooted in math and statistics rather than logic, reason and common sense. Much like a computer with no heart or soul, it can only relate to that which has a materialist blueprint attached. You can't argue with these pedants who think that everything can and must be explained away by formulas and numbers. They try to remake the great unknown into the known in their own intellectual image as if the concept of God were simply robotic. They are just cold unfree thinkers who think that the model of creation is a biotech game subject to physical laws alone and not spiritual mysteries beyond our grasp. A good parallel to Health Rang

Thanks, Mike, for this crystal-clear delineation of the 'problem' of modern physics/science. Very well done and much appreciated. I was, however, jarred toward the end when you used the quote 'ethics has not kept up with science'. If this was intended to be a re-quote of Hawking from the beginning of the film (which is what I took it to be) it was jarring in its inaccuracy -- and sudden shift of meaning -- as the original quote was that 'philosophy has not kept up with science'. Please explain and/or correct this apparent editorial boo-boo.

Great video! I was a scientist myself and abandoned the field because, even in psychology, such perverse ideas are gaining terrain, and even in specialties such as psychotherapy and psychological trauma; that is, treating human beaings as biological machines. Enough was enough! Now, I most meditate, out of free will and with my heart and soul. In this world, we are led by psychopaths, which are truly humanoids, not human beings with a divine soul. Great work again, Mike. Thank you for all your generosity.

Incorrect axioms are the basis of all scientific lies; assumptions of ideas and the mechanisms of the universe lead millions down a road of mistruths......they are wasting their time. Sad really. A smart person knows things; a wise person knows what he does not know. The alternative is that some very smart people know how they are misleading the population of the world away from the truth; that couldn't happen, could it? The good news is that evil is self-destructive. The fools who pull the strings in this world will destroy themselves......I just hope enough of us can survive their insanity and their insane policies of destruction.

I'm so glad you made this documentary, Mike! This is a debate thats always on raging between me and my friends, and I dare say its been a deciding factor in who I choose to associate with. I've come to essentially the same conclusions as you – and I'm quite afraid the slavish nature of the followers of this technocracy could bring us the next holocaust. Just as Nietzche's Will to Power was distorted by Hitler, Newton's and Einstein's discoveries will be distorted for their genocidal experiments – as if the atomic bombs/energy were not enough. I have to say, however, that you overlooked the most basic evidence of free will. The very act fact that one can choose whether or not free will exists, its evidence of free will! The mind, even if fully biologically based, is more than the sum of its parts. The phenomenon of the 'mind' is in no way 'controlled' by biology – rather, it is empowered by it.

Proof of consciousness. "The proof that consciousness exist is measured absolutely when a being sees everything in his physicality as a reflection of what is in his subconscious and no longer judges other than the understanding that he has free will to determine the experience as a negative or positive reflection. When a being understands everything as all a positive experience than that being is truly conscious". Explanation; What this is saying, comparing Stephen Hawking hypothesis, the aware being can embrace the understanding that in its own self, reality forces 'the conscious being' to unveil the truth about what is in his subconscious so that being can address, than discharge what was interpreted before as a negative experience. The eradication of the idea that there exist negative experiences, leaves one complete in a blissful/positive energy. One continuous stream of cause which is the evolutionary development of conscious truth. No longer needing to be even labelled as p

Determinism simply does not imply that we do not have free will (most philosophers are compatibilists), and likewise lack of free will does not imply a lack of consciousness. Not to mention that no one has ever managed to articulate a concept of free will according to which our actions aren't determined by anything and yet are not random either.

Science should have no ego.. it should be methodically tested and repeated and everything it suggests shall accept the logic that it may be proven wrong. Science is ever evolving. Some people and some corporations have twisted this meaning of science into a new set of rules Rules that will only accept something as scientifically true if it meets the wants of the aforesaid persons/corporations. Real science fits outside their new set of rules and unfortunately is mocked if it doesnt fit into the socioeconomic game the monetary market system wants us all to play.

Great Video Mike. I find it interesting that in physics we are always left waiting for this ultimate discovery of how the mind works that never seems to happen, which will explain (mathematically) everything. It reminds me of conventional medicine being on the cusp of discovering a cure for Cancer... just send us more money! "Just send us more research money and we will prove we are right. We don't know when but we're close." I read Bruce Liptons books which take into consideration the consciousness to explain the physics. Looking forward to part 2

I don't really understand why any of this even needs to be said........................................the idea that human beings have no free will is as baseless as the idea that Stephen Hawking has a complete understanding of " everything". However, it simply does not need to be stated. To err even further by comparing a humans " free will" to a remote control helicopter is even more baffling.

Half way through I thought I'd stop - I don't think it's physics as much as people that would lead to, a senseless science. After all, it was physics that said "things change when observed", so including the observer in the equation. Because one person, or a thousand, want to ignore the totality of what is, that isn't physics ignoring it. What leads a part of the scientific community to support industries behind GMO's, or vaccines, is not science but people. What leads people to believe in gods? Creation? The Big Bang? Science, actual science, studies - what is. Where there is no good experiment, there is hypothesis and theory. Where there is no observable fact, there is belief. If we all, scientist, believers and hybrids looked for what exists - and not just what we want to find - we could find things out. There is a lot of good science being conducted right now, resulting in great discovery. There are a lot of "people" denying it. Science can not deny, refute or ignore what is

Hello Mike, Excellent presentation. This is a good start but I wouldn't go too far with the logical refutation of determinism. From Emmanuel Kant to the present day most philosophers have agreed that it is impossible to refute either free will or determinism logically. It just can't be done. It's one of the great paradoxes of philosophy. Also, calling people "merely" robots wont do either because if you just say something to the effect of "well, man is such a complex robot that you can't tell him apart from a normal human being and he might as well be regarded as completely free because there is no way to say he isn't ... etc." They go as far as to admit that people SHOULD be held responsible for their behavior and that people should be regarded as having souls, etc. because thinking of people as having souls is not incompatible in any way from thinking of them as robots! I know that last statement sounds absurd but they maintain that it really IS possible to believe
