This faulty logic plays out all too often in the scientific community and is almost cliche in science fiction thrillers thanks in no small part to the works of Michael Crichton (RIP). Apparently no one ever considers that the discovery is actually Y. And, when confronted with the possibility that discovery is actually Y, not X, scientist argues vehemently, probably because a tenure decision or billions of $$$ is on the line.
And so it goes in "The Discovery." Robert Redford (glad to see him back on the screen) has found scientific proof that there is indeed an afterlife. As a result, the suicide rate all over the world has skyrocketed. And the new murder defense is "I was just relocating him. He's not dead."
But is it really an afterlife that he has tapped in to?
