Ig winner Chopra skeptical of critics

DeepakChopraDeepak Chopra, winner of the 1998 Ig Nobel Prize in physics for his unique interpretation of quantum physics as it applies to life, liberty, and the pursuit of economic happiness, recently acknowledged some of his many, many, many, many, many critics. In the San Francisco Chronicle on November 30, 2009, Dr. Chopra wrote:

No skeptic, to my knowledge, ever made a major scientific discovery or advanced the welfare of others. Typically they sit by the side of the road with a sign that reads “You’re Wrong” so that every passerby, whether an Einstein, Gandhi, Newton, or Darwin, can gain the benefit of their illuminated skepticism.
