Intelligence Squared

Recently I have been enthralled with the Intelligence Squared channel on YouTube. Please check out this video and I hope you check out the rest of this series on "Atheism is the new fundamentalism."

  1. I love how he calls out Dawkins, who is sitting right next to him.

    The biggest hole in the presentation of this argument (to me) is that the speaker compares ignoring the facts of accumulated centuries of scientific man-hours to not being swayed by the opinions of poets. Poets may claim to be seeking the "truth", but it does not compare to scientifically established fact in any real way. The argument is akin to saying we should believe it because believing it was good enough for everyone else, which is not valid.
