Video of the week -- what science looks like


These days religion tries to appropriate the label of science, in the hope that some shadow of science's glory and achievement will rub off on its trite and befuddled superstitions. But there's just no commonality at all between the two.

WTF was that video about? Was the idea there that, if the film was made by a creationist and mashed a bunch of "scientific" images together to dramatic music, that would prove that creationism is scientific? Meaningless. And probably highly convincing to certain minds.

At best, the bible offers some historical perspective on what beliefs were held in a particular part of the world at a particular time, revised and cherry-picked by a another particular group during a different era toward the end of spooking a bunch of people into behaving a certain way.

That makes it an artifact useful to the study of historical behavioral science, if we want to stretch the point.

No, it's contrasting the "Biblical science" (images at the beginning) with what actual science looks like (images in the rest of it).

Looking to the Bible for science is like looking to the story of Peter Pan for a background on aviation.

That was an awesome video.
