I love the world...

At first I was a bit disappointed to realize that Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed (or apparently required) was playing in El Paso. This and the whole Clinton debacle from a few weeks ago really make me question why I live in this city (although to be fair not all of Texas or El Paso is that bad... not entirely at least).

However, I came across this on the Discovery Channel and it made me feel a bit less like smacking some sense into people. This is probably the best explanation for why I genuinely love being a geek, engineer, science-y type person. It also really made me want to go traveling a lot more ;)



Not that some people are less desperately in need of having a great big load of sense smacked, beaten or what have you into them, but it doesn't feel quite so pressing (and depressing) after watching this. I'd rant about why ID/creationism really annoys me (beyond just the purely scientific reasons), but I'm tired and I suspect I'd largely be preaching to the choir as it were ;)

That video is totally my new favorite thing of all time. I posted it to my journal a few days ago.
Ah, one of the things I dislike about my job, I don't get to keep up w/ LJ so much. I would have totally loved to come across that video sooner. It's definitely one of my favorite things of all time too.
i love the stephen hawking cameo! <3
Yeah, I was impressed to see him in it.
I love real dirty things! Discovery is one of my favorite networks :).

Last week someone presumed I was a creationist because I happened to use the word "design" when discussing mental programming. I almost tore them a new asshole, I was so insulted, on top of being pissed off that words have suddenly become off-limits because they are purposefully used by delusional morons to mean things other than what they mean.
Heh that first statement could be interpreted in multiple ways (all of which I approve of ;). I find myself watching a rather large amount of Discovery, TLC, history etc... I think the closest thing to "network" TV I watch is BBCA (how can you beat Top Gear, Dr Who, and Torchwood on one channel?)

It sucks you had to deal with the morons, although I wouldn't have minded watching you go medieval on them ;)
OMG. That RULEZ!!
Indeed! I went so far as putting it on my little portable music device (not sure what you call something that plays mp3s and videos and isn't an iPod). It still makes me smile when I watch it.
