Self-evident but Clever

Even though so much of what Michael Shermer says in this video is self-evident, the way he says it is clever.

It makes me think John Hodgman's recent speech at the
2009 Radio and TV Correspondents' Dinner.

Can't help but think these two might add much sparkle to any dinner table conversation.

The idea behind both presentations is the need for all of us to question popular theories and offer intelligent skepticism towards our beliefs of life's truths.

  1. Thanks Lilalia! These were very refreshing to see, as a reminder that it is actually OK to ask questions, and maybe even a duty. And Hodgman just cracks me up every time!
