Yes, I deleted the video that appeared in the previous post. Sorry about that. After re-watching the final version and getting some objective feedback, I realized that it missed the mark. I tried to cram too much into too little time, and didn’t quite hit the right tone for the target audience.
If you enjoyed it anyway, thanks, but as I explained initially I’m not really aiming these videos at regular readers of this blog. This is my attempt to reach the rest of the crowd – the folks who don’t understand why science is different from other ways of knowing things, or how it really works. I want to reach people whose last contact with “science” was a pile of seemingly unconnected facts they had to memorize for a standardized test in high school. I’m not optimistic about my chances, but I do intend to give it my best shot.
So stay tuned. We’ll be right back.
