It's quite simple, for 'quack' is a label attached to to those that peddle
theories with no credible evidence. What Penrose has done is exactly the
kind of nonsense you likely criticise the faith based for doing; filling in
gaps in knowledge with vaguely defined supernatural agency. Having read his
work, and that of other people promoting this theory, there is a distinct
whiff of religious fervour, and an appeal to human exceptionalism. I think
this quote from Stenger sums it up nicely...
*But, alas, quantum consciousness has about as much substance as the aether
from which it is composed *-V J Stenger
