This is Abiogenesis For Dummies. In other words, even I understand it. What a great job Aussie James Hadfield aka Potholer54 did on this video. As Calpurnpiso, from the Raving Atheist Message Board mentioned in a video reply, 'this video should be seen in every church, synagogue and mosque just before they do the services.' Watch this video, it is fantastic:

OK, the one thing theists have been using lately is the "how did the universe start?, and how matter got started." This is not addressed in the above video, because it is a different "matter" altogether. Sorry for the pun...no I'm not.

Potholer54 only has done one other video, and it too is well done. Here, he explains how intelligent design is just plain ridiculous. It is called "God and DNA Made Easy":

Oh, and if you are curious about the big A on my sidebar, Pharyngula explains what it means.


  1. Great vids... I'll be linking to these, they deserve the widest exposure.

  2. I going to put this video on my blog, excellent.

  3. BEAJ: I see that your Digg account is still blocked. What is the news on this? If Digg haven't given you a substantive reason for this, then you've been hard done by.

  4. Excellent material...as the Terminator said, I'll be back.

    And congratulations on the Jewish Skeptic Award.





    In the beginning, God created the Heavens and the Earth and populated the Earth with broccoli, cauliflower and spinach, green and yellow and red vegetables of all kinds, so Man and Woman would live long and healthy lives.

    Then using God's great gifts, Satan created Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream and Krispy Creme Donuts. And Satan said, "You want chocolate with that?"

    And Man said, "Yes!" and Woman said, "and as long as you're at it, add some sprinkles." And they gained 10 pounds. And Satan smiled.

    And God created the healthful yogurt that Woman might keep the figure that Man found so fair.

    And Satan brought forth white flour from the wheat, and sugar from the cane and combined them. And Woman went from size 6 to size 14. (AND MUCH MORE)
    So God said, "Try my fresh green salad."

    And Satan presented Thousand-Island Dressing, buttery croutons and garlic toast on the side.

    And Man and Woman unfastened their belts following the repast.

    God then said, "I have sent you heart healthy vegetables and olive oil in which to cook them."

    And Satan brought forth deep fried fish and
    chicken-fried steak so big it needed its own platter.

    And Man gained more weight and his cholesterol went through the roof.
    God then created a light, fluffy white cake, named it "Angel Food Cake," and said, "It is good."

    Satan then created chocolate cake and named it "Devil's Food."
    God then brought forth running shoes so that His children might lose those extra pounds.

    And Satan gave cable TV with a remote control
    so Man would not have to toil changing the channels.

    And Man and Woman laughed and cried before the flickering blue light and gained pounds.

    Then God brought forth the potato, naturally low in fat and brimming with nutrition.

    And Satan peeled off the healthful skin and sliced the starchy center into chips and deep-fried them.

    And Man gained pounds.
    God then gave lean beef so that Man might consume fewer calories and still satisfy his appetite.

    And Satan created McDonald's and its 99-cent
    double cheeseburger. Then said, "You want fries with that?"

    And Man
    replied, "Yes! And super size them!"

    And Satan said, "It is good."

    And Man went into cardiac arrest.

    God sighed and created quadruple bypass surgery.

    Then Satan created HMOs.

    If you don't send this to five old friends right away there will be five fewer people laughing in the world"!!!

    The devil made me do it!!

  6. I lost your email address...reza


    and I don't know if I posted properly.

  7. Oh, thank... uhm... goodness that someone posted a decent video that explains abiogenesis in a way that anyone with a basic high school chemistry and molecular biology education would understand. I'm so sick of people who haven't a clue what scientists are saying claiming that the scientists are saying [insert ridiculous thing here].

    Stealing this for my blog!
