Ladies and gentlemen, the incredible, Mr. Tim Minchin! Genius. Absolute, genius. That is all.

I am a nerd. I love Symphony of Science. That is all.
(Pity Stephen Hawking didn’t make it into the video though)
To quote one of my favourite people, Sam Harris:
“I would challenge anyone here to think of a question upon which we once had a scientific answer, however inadequate, but for which now the best answer is a religious one.”
And it’s as simple as that. Science has a better answer than religion for every question ever asked. The opposite has never happened. I find that fascinating since there are four billion people on the planet that claim to have a direct line to the almighty creator of the universe who has all knowledge. I know so many Christians who have ‘a personal relationship with Jesus Christ’ that I could start my own mega-church, were I that way inclined. And yet somehow science progresses every day of every week steadily making our lives better; making our lives longer, making us more healthy, helping amputees, curing diseases, exploring other planets, expanding our knowledge of everything from subatomic particles to galaxy superclusters.
Creationism? Religion? World wide floods, 600 year old men building wooden boats to save ten million species of animal, talking snakes, witch burning and human sacrifice. It’s laughable.
Science. It works, bitches.
This video is a sketch done by The Atheist Experience about Hank and his followers. I’ll post the first video I saw about hank and his followers below. It’s absolutely brilliant and I love that the dudes from The Atheist Experience did it on television.
The annoying thing however, is that it makes it blatantly clear what religion is – a farce – and yet those under the influence (of religion…) just can’t seem to make the connection.
Here’s the version I saw first a couple of years back:
One of my all time favourite video’s.
Some additional links:
Oh? It’s not like that? In which way is it not exactly, like, that? It is exactly like that. That is Christianity and it’s freaking disturbing.
The question Christians don’t hear nearly often enough: “you believe fucking what?!?”
A new video by The Thinking Atheist, Seth Andrews. And not just ‘a’ video… this is an epic video. It makes me proud to be an atheist, if such a thing is even possible. It inspires me; it inspires me to… live harder, better. It makes me want to be more awesome in every conceivable way!
I do not fear death. I fear not squeezing every available drop of life out of every available moment.

BLAM. Feel the science awesome!
Phil Hellenes has made another video. How can today not be utterly fantastic? Think that’s a bit over the top? I guess you haven’t watched enough of Phil’s video’s then… Seriously, the man is a genius, his video’s are genius. You can’t watch them and not re-consider and re-evaluate yourself, your purpose and your position in the universe (if you can, there’s something wrong with you, seriously).
His video’s. I love them.[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=9nnwvoH-4XI]
If you haven’t yet, do yourself a favour and go watch all his video’s here: http://www.youtube.com/user/philhellenes/videos
Here’s a couple I’ve posted on before:
Awesome science is awesome (dammit, I should have studied particle physics)!
