It would be nice to have some background info on what this is, what your thoughts were on it, and what it's relevance is to anything. Is it about debt? Capitalism? Senseless toil? This ain't facebook, Z.

You don't think I should watch it? Why did you post it? Sounds like you're a sleeper agent. That link probably points directly to pederasty.

apologies, i presumed folk knew who grayling is and what the content would be focusing on. it's a lecture explaining atheism and humanism within a historical context, a compilation of ideas from several papers and books he's written over the past few years.

then you'll appreciate his argument that while its perfectly acceptable to believe in god, you simply shouldn't. he's not yet reached the level of frustration that dawkins has, and he doesn't have the venomous tongue of hitchens.

Giving a simple paragraph or two explanation of what the fuck the video is that you started a whole new thread for is too difficult? C'mon man, if you just want to throw a video out there then put it in the random video thread. If you're going to start a whole new thread about it though, then at least give us a little background on it and explain why we should care.

The internet is filled with videos nowadays, and most of us aren't too inclined to just check out shit without any explanation first.
