This at first might seem like stand up comedy, someone playing the role of a crazy professor, complete with white coat, large glasses and fluffy hair. But then when you keep listening, you start to realize this guy (Marvin Minksy, a pioneer on Artificial Intelligence) is just being himself, talking about the things he uses his time on earth for.
If you don’t know Banksy, get ready to be amazed.
Here’s a very true quote by him.
This sure looks like a world changing toy!
If you happen to be shoppin’ for a god and can’t make up your mind, here’s something you should really see. This man, Pat Robertson, makes a very convincing case on why all non-Christian gods, like Buddha and stuff, are just evil demons. It’s hard to make a case against such strong self-produced literalism, as it ends all possible reasoning immediately.
The video below makes some of the weird ways of mathematics very visual for people with a mind that’s less mathematically developed, like my brain. There’s a woman in the video that sounds a bit like Deanna Troy, explaining the really weird stuff to a guy that plays dumb for the movie. Somehow the explanation of the subject is oddly interesting, although its real worldly application seems completely irrelevant. Although I must admit I still not rationally understand what it’s all about, I did get some kind of a sensation of understanding something that’s quite complex and outside my regular of the area of interest. How cool is that?
A common sense introduction to the 4th dimension, by Carl Sagan: did you see the 4th dimension, after watching this video? Do you feel trapped in the third dimension? What use is this knowledge? Well, it’s just kinda cool to think about the unthinkable, I guess
Check out the incredibly sad story below. It’s about a girl that got kicked off her sports team for refusing to pray. After that, things only got worse. It seems as though the commandment ‘Love thy Neighbour’ is often applied in such a way that people just try hard to make sure that their neighbour is a good god fearing Christian. Skip to 7:40 if you don’t want to see it entirely. Pretty shocking stuff.
You don’t need to be a catholic or even a believer to be happy with the Vatican this week.
The original Seven Deadly Sins (sloth, envy, gluttony, greed, lust, wrath and pride) were a bit outdated, so they we’re updated to Seven Deadly Sins 2.0: genetic modification, carrying out experiments on humans, polluting the environment, causing social injustice, causing poverty, becoming obscenely wealthy and taking drugs. The Vatican is almost becoming hip! Read the full story…
The video below seems unreal, but it looks too well produced to be a spoof. Does anyone know if this is real, and if so, why MTV would make a video like this? The ‘evil’ men in the video sure look and sound like white Americans!
A philosophical animation about what evil is or could mean. Very nice, naive style of design and rendering, somewhere in between motion graphics and animation.
