Deepak Chopra Apologizes to Richard Dawkins

Deepak Chopra was on Bill O'Reilly's show and got caught up in some bad-mouthing that got slightly out of hand. You can watch the O'Reilly segment at Hemant's blog, The Friendly Atheist, if you'd like, but the point is that Chopra recognized that he went overboard. He took to the YouTubes to apologize.

He doesn't state exactly what he said that was offensive, just that he took Dawkins' criticism(s) to be personally offensive and reacted inappropriately. This is a good step but ultimately it comes across as a little CYA-ish. He got led by O'Reilly into essentially admitting that the idiocy that is Intelligent Design is valid and that the U.S. is a Christian nation, so he had to do something to backpedal a bit.

Well done, Deepak Chopra, I just wish it was a little more specific. I'll do my part to try to address just the silliness you peddle and not resort to ad hominem attacks.
