There is a new article on Quantum Consciousness by Michael Bernard Beckwith.
Here is a comment thread that got deleted. This is one of those where I saw the comments and then they disappeared:

“What exactly IS "Quantum consciousness THEORY"? I've never seen any actual basic definition, just a lot of musings about how the Internet is cool and bringing us all together and how quantum entanglement proves we are all spirits. BTW, I agree with the first two but don't think they have anything to do with quantum anything and I think the last one is false and shows a fundamental lack of understanding of what quantum (physics) theory is really all about.”

“Wow. This is the first time I've seen a post allowed that called the author's knowledge of quantum physics into question.
Generally they allow comments by the gullible, the clueless and the ignorant, but if one of we scientist who DO know something about quantum physics points out the sheer nonsense and rank ridicularity of many of the assertions and suppositions made, or that perhaps the author does not know quantum physics in general and that there is little or no basis in science for the wild assertions of authors like Beckwith, Lanza and Chopra in these pages in particular, your comments get whacked.
The gullible get a platform, the scientists are muzzled.
Why? These comment pages are for the glorification of the authors, not the free exchange of ideas and information between the readers.
Fortunately, most of us cross-post our comments on Digg, StumbleUpon, Tumblr, etc...
But it is still a shame it is HuffPo's policy to muzzle scientists in order to appease authors who may be only selling ignorance to the gullible.”

My "spidey sense" as to what moderators will tolerate is getting more fine tuned. As soon as I saw Dr. Blizzardo's comment I had a feeling that both his reply and my original comment would be gone soon.
