Science Fundamentalism...is exactly what happens when there’s a significant, perceived ideological threat to one’s traditions and identity.

I like Cracked. Like this one: 4 Movies That Are Horrifying From Another Character's POV

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=41dGDGZAFG0

These are pretty much the exact same things I think (and sometimes say) the first time I watch movies like these.

OMGOMGOMG! I FOUND ONE OF MY ALL-TIME FAVOURITE COMMERCIALS!!

When people are asking me stupid questions concerning subjects about which I have no idea, I still sometimes respond by asking back, "Is this about my time in prison?" :heh:

Cracked does free will philosophizing.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aMVE0fN_Y4s&ebc=ANyPxKof6ZFFpm35Hs5o0x4ruIbBWCxmGnCjhPUyiSwlZ3PmdpXMp-SdUdjUijPiKGtsTIYKdSzlkGckIibbqC_SeE3Elns4AA

I feel like that guy. Except for the garbage part -- I wouldn't do that. I would save up my stuff for the future moment when I know I will be heading toward the recycling. Because, although free will may be an illusion, it is a convincing and enjoyable one.

I can just sit on my porch and see this stuff every day. Until 4 AM. And then they take a break, and start up again at 5 AM.

It is certainly a slick video and the scripts flows well. I like Michael Shermer as Agent Smart, channelling Agent 86 (Maxwell Smart from Get Smart).

It is a little derivative of the Mitchell and Web series of "uber conspiracy" skits on their TV show.

I love this series of informative videos, and I enjoy this particular speaker. He's got some outtake videos too, but they're slightly less enjoyable (to me) because they don't exactly try to teach me anything other than that people make mistakes.
