Regarding the video below (that is making the rounds today), note this comment from the wonderful site Open Culture (I highly recommend it – subscribe!)
“The visuals are impressive. There’s no denying that. But what might leave you cold (or not) is his willingness to talk about human development in terms of “mystery, magic, and divinity” rather than trying to grapple with any scientific analysis. Is this a nod to “Intelligent Design”? Or an unfortunate byproduct of the short talk format? Who knows….”
Wow. What really leaves us cold? It makes me think of a quote in the beginning of one of my college biology text books: “We are no more than sunlight dancing on a stream – and no less.” (or, maybe you really mean this?).
In the past, wonders such as this provoked worship, even among the highest of the elites. And now, the ever-increasing cadre of godless among us somehow presume that the default reaction here should be scientific analysis?
