Re: SMP Video Collection

Awesome TV series, "Inside Nature's Giants". They autopsy an animal in each episode with an emphasis on the evolutionary history of each species. Only two of the episodes have aired as yet, autopsies of an Elephant and a Whale with Crocodile and Giraffe autopsies to come. It is from the Channel 4 website so it may only be online for 30 days and it could be that it's not available outside the UK. So if someone stumbles across this on Youtube or Movshare post it.

They have some other good ones including "The Genius of Charles Darwin" series the uncut interviews of which have been posted earlier in this thread.

Re: SMP Video Collection

[NOTE: Be sure to see our updated page: 70 Intelligent YouTube Video Collections]
http://www.oculture.com/2008/03/youtubesmartvideos.html

Since October, universities have been getting busy and setting up shop on YouTube, enough so that it seemed worth putting together a collection of what’s out there. As you’ll see, universities aren’t always using YouTube to distribute educational content to the outer world. It’s sometimes about that. But it’s also often about “selling” the university — about PR, in short. Below, we’ve put the more meaningful collections at the top of the list. Over time, we’ll add new video collections as they come online, and we’ll continue to distinguish the good from the only so-so collections.

1.) University of California - Berkeley: This channel was launched in October, and it contains over 300 hours of academic programming. Most notably, you’ll find here a series of university courses that can be watched in their entirety (for free). It’s a deep collection worth starting with.
http://www.youtube.com/ucberkeley

2.) MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology): It’s a new collection and it already has some good meat to it. Click here and you will find clips from classroom lectures, many presumably coming from MIT’s ambitious OpenCourseWare initiative.
http://youtube.com/mit

3.) UChannel: Spearheaded by Princeton University, this video service presents talks on international/political affairs from academic institutions all over the world. You can find a more extensive video collection on the UChannel web site.
http://youtube.com/profile?user=uchannel

4.) EGS (The European Graduate School): Here we have a video collection on YouTube that includes talks by important theorists/philosophers of the past generation — for example, Jacques Derrida and Jean Baudrillard. There are also some filmmakers mixed in — take for example, Peter Greenaway and John Waters.
http://www.youtube.com/user/egsvideo

5.) Vanderbilt: There’s hope for this channel in the future.
http://www.youtube.com/vanderbilt

6.) USC (University of Southern California):
http://www.youtube.com/usc

7.) Duke University: Borderline collection. Some interesting content, and I’m hopeful that it will improve over time.
http://www.youtube.com/profile?user=DukeUniversityNews

8.) Purdue University: Heavier emphasis on promotional content; less emphasis on truly educational content.
http://youtube.com/purdue

9.) Oxford University Saïd Business School: So far this is highly tailored to marketing the b-school and helping students through the application process. This is not necessarily a bad use of the medium. But it’s not what we typically focus on here.
http://youtube.com/profile?user=OxfordSBS

10.) Auburn University: Here’s a case of a university using YouTube for mostly promotional purposes … at least so far. I’m told by the university, however, that the collection is in its “infant stages” and plans for new, less promotional content are in the works. Keep an eye out

enjoy

I've watched some of those Dawkins shows in the past. They're enjoyable.

This is a very common strategy among Christians also. If something in their texts are in total disagreement with scientific understanding (Zeus created the earth and the plants and then he created the stars, or whatever) then they say you've got to understand the story differently. And if some poetic language says something that can be twisted into being in accord with scientific understanding, then it's suddenly a prophesy straight from God and total proof that the entire bible and faith is true.

The things that they won't buckle on in regards to scientific understanding are things that are too central to their ideas and would destroy their most of their faith-stories, like evolution or miracles of Jesus/Mohammed. And in that case you get endless nittery about how evolution can't work and so on.

It was really sad to see all those women with headscarves and clapping at any half-coherent thing that Muslim man said. The guy on his left with the jacket was lol btw. He really seemed to get off on someone 'confirming' his beliefs. Reminds me of the Politics forum.

Re: SMP Video Collection

^ agreed about that but especially about the guy on the left. I like his dance at 11:10 - ignorance surly is bliss after a dance like that.

This is kinda funny, another one for the 'Dawkinites' as Splendour would bark
