"Taboos in Science and Spirituality" with Dean Radin (part 3 of 4)

Concepts that challenge the scientific dogma of the day are defined as Stubborn Taboos by Dean in this segment. The topics of homeopathy, cold fusion and UFO studies are all Stubborn Taboos. Acupuncture used to be a stubborn taboo but that status is fading. Dean also approaches his third category of taboos and reflects on the contradiction between the interest of the population with topics including psychic phenomenon and lack of University support of research in that area.
