I have been blogging here for some time now and this morning I was looking back at some of my earlier posts, in particular those with video content. I re watched the excellent TED talk by Michael Shermer in this post and decided to look for other lectures by this fascinating man and stumbled across the talk called Why Darwin Matters, below.
After watching it in it’s entirety (set aside an hour and a coffee) I soon became aware that this one video actually summarises my stance on science, religion and education almost perfectly. Watch this and you will - or should - get it. He uses humour, is able to put some of the most complex topics into plain english and has such an easy to follow way of speaking. Michael Shermer is one of my favourite lecturers.
If you have time, I’d suggest you watch this. A huge advantage of YouTube is the ability to pause a talk if an interruption occurs!
