I got this funny and insightful email from listener Pete.
Koukl demonstrates a vastly superior grasp of reason and logic.
But one of the funniest exchanges is when Chopra claims to “embrace” his own uncertainty. Actually on several occasions through the interview he champions his willingness to embrace his uncertainty, and points out proudly that in his books he talks about the “wisdom of uncertainty” and then later mocks Koukl by saying “That’s the difference between you and me… you’re certain and I’m not.” It’s quite funny to watch.
Well, I started thinking… “What would Chopra’s books look like if he was as uncertain as he claims?” Then I thought it’d be really funny to take a handful of Chopra’s titles and alter them to reflect an author who really isn’t sure of anything in particular. And so, I did just that. What follows are three of Chopra’s book covers, actual vs. “altered”, to demonstrate that Chopra’s “open-mindedness” is merely a facade. He wants people to believe his way precisely because he thinks he’s right… just like the rest of us.
