This YouTube video presents a rejoinder to creationists who believe that, regarding the question of whether human beings evolved or were created, personal opinion matters. The first few seconds seem to presage a talk-show style arguement-fest, but the presentation soon turns into a soothing pastiche of science-related imagery, culminating in amazing shots (or CGI?) of the Mars rover. The larger point is that “well, I believe…” statements pale in comparison to the tangible achievements of applied reason. But argument aside it bears enjoying as an aesthetic meditation on science and tech.
“Have a little respect for your scientific minority,” the video ends. “Without them you would still be freezing, starving, and dying of horrific diseases.”
