New-age author and physician Deepak Chopra has offered prominent atheists such as Richard Dawkins a $1 million prize challenge to offer a scientific explanation for the biological basis of thoughts and ideas.

Addressing what he called a “tribe of militant new atheists,” naming Dawkins, James Randi, and Daniel Dennett, Chopra announced the challenge in a video uploaded on Youtube earlier this week.

“Can you please offer a scientific understanding for the biological basis of a first-person experience? Any experience – mental experience, or perceptual experience. So for cognition, or for perception. And I’ll even make it more simple. Can you offer a scientific understanding for the biological basis of an idea, a thought?” Chopra asks in the video.

“Just tell me how does electrochemistry produce a thought, an idea, and you get the million dollars. I will live up to this. But it has to be a valid, scientific explanation for the biological basis of an idea.”

Chopra, who was born in India, has written several books dealing with new understandings of spirituality, alternative medicine and the mind-body relationship.

The author has also appeared on several talk show programs includingOprah Winfrey’s “Lifeclass,” where has discussed spiritual themes in depth.
