Neil deGrasse Tyson on Stupid Design

It's too bad we don't get the rest of his talk, but I saw Richard Dawkins in the audience! Tyson only mentioned the major things that can hurt or kill us, many things, like acne, are just too numerous to exhaust. I think I'll google the fellow, see what I can find.

Highly entertaining, and right on more than one point. Love the part where he says "aborted feces", I just had to stop and watch it three times. Nice find, thanks for putting it up.

Thanks for the Neil deGrasse Tyson site.  The clips are from the Beyond Belief Conference mentioned in others places in the forum. They are really good as was the entire series.  :Smiley:

I'll try to find more clips from the conference; I couldn't attend, but I was there in spirit!

I didn't recognize the name at first, but I do know who he is.  He's often one of the guest speakers on various NOVA programs on PBS, including "The Elegant Universe" (2003) and one that aired tonight on human aging.

The human body needs more holes.  Heheh. :snork_lach:
