Philosophy of Time Video
digital
I'm new here, but thought I'd share this: http://iai.tv/vid...me-s-arrow

It's a philosophy debate on the nature of time, whether it has a direction, and so forth. Mix of philosophy and physics, pretty interesting stuff I thought.

Thanks for the link, I'll have to wait until I'm home to watch it, but it does look interesting.

I too will need to check a few of these out, it appears to be a similar idea as the TED talks.

I did glance at the comments under Mark Vernon: How to be Agnostic, and saw this:

”It is conceived by him who conceives it not.
Who conceives it, knows it not.
It is not understood by those who understand it.
It is understood by those who understand it not.”


And that sums up why a good 95% of philosophy is bullshit. Mainly where spirituality and religion enter the fray.

If I remember to, I will watch the video you highlight tonight.

Nice find. This is a really great debate.

Glad you guys enjoyed it. The site does seem to be quite TED-esque, though obviously with more of a specific philosophy focus.

Had another look around the site and spotted this: http://iai.tv/vid...y-humanism

The video quality isn't quite as good as the other video, but it's specifically about humanism & atheism.

I was in Kentucky all last week and never had a chance to watch the OP's video. I'll try to find time this afternoon once I get settled and some clothes washed. Smile
