    Is he a real scientist and does he have any creditability? If you don't know who he is go look up his videos and tell me what you think.

    If you knew the first thing about science you wouldn't need to ask. Science is a method-driven process reliant on measurement, analysis, gradual confirmation and falsification. Quacks like Braden (and chopra, for that matter) are reliant on wishful thinking, ambigulty, and the gullibility of scientifically-illiterate consumers.

    This was for gauging purposes, not for you to judge what you think I know. Science is simply observation.

    So i your opinion, even if he had some sort of scientific degree he would still be a quack?

    "Science is simply observation."

    LOL...I do hope you're joking. Science hasn't been that simple since Aristotle. And yes, there are varieties of degrees, varieties of scientists, varieties of quacks. Braden quacks in concert with Chopra...quack quack. Both or either of them might have some science in their background, but they leverage a cynically loose understanding of physics in an attempt to align their spiritual yearnings with logic. It doesn't work. It offers nothing testable, nothing falsifiable, it creates no coherent framework that can be expressed in purely logical or mathematical terms. Its ultimate goal is really just to make money from other simple-minded people who are desperate to have someone tell them that there's anything going on beyond death. I have no time for that sort of smarmy bullshit. Believe in anything you like, but don't conflate wishful thinking with science. As for death, we'll know soon enough.

    Well I don't know about you but I wasn't able to find a single scientific publication of his, nevermind a reputable one.

    As for science being just observation, balderdash. Science is about quantifying, predicting and testing.
