This has to be, by far, the single smartest video I've seen on POETV. Then again, I tend to watch a lot of videos of cats and people hurting themselves.
He is right to say that science is in conflict with religion. I'm not sure science is willing to go the lengths necessary to destroy the enemy the way religion is, though, unless someone's willing to make a virus targeting the God gene, or, failing that, an unstoppable army of athiest robots.
I can't give full stars because he fails to prove his point (a religious person would feel perfectly comfortable calling this "Why We NOTICE God") and the tribalism that atheists are developing these days (to be fair, the religionists started it) making me a little nauseated, but still, I love brains.
Good lecture, but those were some of the most obnoxiously pretentious questions asked at the end.
I feel shafted by the lack of empirical evidence, which he claimed to have a couple of times. But I came back a month later to star it because it's stuck with me regardless.
Great lecture, great speaker.
