This guy has four videos responding to all the backlash this video caused. They are truly a masterpiece and prove that his is either completely hopeless or is one hell of a performance artist.

The.... audacity!!!!!!!
And here I thought the internet couldn't get to me anymore. I hope to jeebus he is actually just a master of the art of trolling.

Okay 2:32 is as far as I made it. I sure hope this kid is trollolololing.

Oh god, he is

One of the subsequent videos is called "Do _you_ have a Presidential Academic Fitness Award?"

As usual with this sort of thing, it doesn't matter if he's trolling because this is literally something that many people buy into, mostly creationists and other pseudo-science adherents. I listened to this whole thing and the impression I get is simply that this person has no real education in astronomy, thus he's totally misunderstanding all sorts of things relating to the theoretical physics behind black holes. This is usually referred to as "being not even wrong" because he's not even wrong about certain things, he's totally misunderstanding things to a point where his argument is totally nonsensical.

I have no real education in astronomy either, but I am capable of finding resources for my interest in the universe, as a layman, which has radically changed my life and my outlook on it. The Internet alone has thousands of hours of space documentaries that go pretty deep, not to mention interactive websites targeting all ages. I honestly think that to be this wrong about a topic so obsessed about takes willpower and an intent driven by an agenda. This person is beyond uneducated, his has intentionally miseducated himself.

Yeah, I didn't go to no fancy astrophysics school...but I can read. Just crack a couple Hawking books and you're well on your way to understanding the universe, you can teach yourself any subject if you put just a tiny bit of effort nowadays.

This kid though -----> *wooosh* (does that thing where you wave your hand over your own head and say 'wooosh' to denote someone completely misunderstanding something)

StanleyPain - 2012-06-14
Well, to clarify, I wasn't implying you need some high level of education to understand black holes, more that you kind of need education to actually refute these things to any degree of credibility, and even then, you better have some damn, damn good reasons for doing so.

Toenails - 2012-06-14
What you are saying is that the argument against a black hole is totally nonsensical and if it really came down to it, you'd go with a theoretical physician over some metal-head on the internet.

The context, the "evidence", the presenter, and the entire case is so far removed from reality that it ceases to be an argument. It's just a silly farce of internet skepticism.

In all seriousness, I'd really like to meet the advocates of "Black Holes are a Lie". I bet it probably has something to do with black holes not being in the Bible.

Nonreligious nonscience is pretty common. Lots of people online scream and shout all over science boards daily about how electromagnetism is the only force of nature and it explains everything, even though they couldn't explain how a light bulb works with electricity. Some people don't want to know the truth, just take it away from everyone else.

The comments. I should never have read the comments.

We need to hire lots of ex-teachers to track down people who stay utterly stupid shit, go to their homes, and just give them a stern glare. Just so they know WE know they're dumbasses.

sure takes his time getting to an uneducated point...at 4 minutes he says "let's not get ahead of ourselves"

honestly, this dudes laughable ideas are just as informed and scientific as creationism, and a very significant percentage of Americans believe in it

He doesn't like you making fun of him.

It seems like he's mostly skeptical about indirect observations in general. But once I hit "contradictive" I knew I'd had enough.
