Where did EVERYTHING come from?

I ran across this today while searching for something else, and something about the contrast of the look of this guy with the person asking the questions, and their content is really interesting.

And in my view, he does a very good job explaining some very difficult topics in a simple manner.

Creationists commonly and confidently boast that they know more than every expert in any field of scientific study -even when they have no idea what any of the relevant subjects even are. In this case, for example, a cab driver who admits to “very little” education, lobbed a series of newbie-level questions at me which he apparently believes to be powerful arguments. He refused to review where I had already answered all his challenges in the FFoC series and insisted on making me repeat every explanation for him alone. He also said he had debated many “evolutionists”, yet his content implied that he had never even met anyone with an adequate understanding of science before. So I told him if he were to debate me in a series of YouTube videos, then he would likely never debate against evolution again. As these are to be structured as a vary straightforward series of Q & A, then he’ll serve as a valuable vehicle to launch an introductory primer on the alleged controversy between religious dogmatism and scientific methodology.


About Rodibidably

Jeff Randall is a frequent volunteer for free-thought organizations, including the Center For Inquiry – DC. Having been blogging since January 2008, he decided that a community of bloggers would be an interesting new experience (or at the very least a fun way to annoy his friends into reading his posts more frequently). Since finding out about about the existence of, and then joining, the atheist/skeptic community in 2007 he has been committed to community activism, critical thinking in all aspects of life, science, reason, and a fostering a secular society.

    “Stop taking it literally . . .”

    Great line. Also love that the scientist looks like a roadie for a rock band.

    I think that I’ll go fill in some more majik gaps with my insipid opining on the quality of my belly-button lint.

    By the way, I watched several more of the videos after the first one. Thanks.
