First of all this presentation is taking place at night on a Saturday, so not during school hours. The article doesn't explain how the school auditorium was booked, but I am going to assume the local church contacted the city to make arrangement for its use. As long as the city government doesn't endorse it there is no constitutional violation. (I know we hold our schools as some sacred off limits to religion zone, but it is a public space when not in use as a learning institution). It is similar to having this person giving his presentation in a public square or park which is a perfectly legal undertaken.
Now his presentation is pure nonsense. And neurologists have shown that a brain deprived of oxygen produces vivid hallucinations usually based on the religious beliefs of the person. And have shown that there is certain areas of the brain that when stimulated can induce "near death" experiences. So his claim to visit heaven is without merit. Also he had 29 ailments? And now all are cured? That seems almost as far fetched as the near death claim. Might make an interesting night if I had nothing better to do, because I always love a good fairy tale, but I have used up all my patience with the self deluded fundies this month.

If ants are animated doesn't that mean according to his definition that they have souls? But what do I expect from a fundy douche who believes that attacking a trash can proves his stupid worldview.

+TheDrewks have you considered releasing your footage to the local media? They might pay you for your footage if they decide to follow up and it might embarrass the LEOS enough to follow their rules. While I agree seatbelt usage is a good idea, I believe it shouldn't be a offence that can be fined (Unless every penny is going to finance a medical facility or hospital for those injured without a seatbelt). But no, it goes into the city coffers for some pet project the city counsel decides.

+Thunderf00t A month or so back there was a panel at one of the universities in Colorado. The topic was the Denial of Science. It was aimed at global climate change and how people (mostly the Christian right) just cannot seem to see that the data indicates that there is a problem. One of the panelist was a social science journalist. He stated that previous to about 30 years ago everyone was using the same pool of facts. They might disagree on the interpretation of those facts but they could have discussions with each other and come to a conclusion with each other. Since about 30 years ago everyone now has there own pool of fact that they claim. (He believes it might have to do with the globalization of information through the Internet and 24 hour news). So what happens is you (metaphorically) pull your facts out of your pool and someone else pulls his facts out of his pool and when you talk to one another you talk past each other. For example, geologists and young earth creationist will never come to a consensus on the age of the earth because they each claim certain facts and will never convince the other that theirs is correct. (That's a simplistic example, but it illustrates what he was saying. You can substitute the two sides of this solar panel in roadways).

If me and my friends did what these cops did in the first segment, we would be get ticketed for inhibiting pedestrian flow on a sidewalk (as cops are so fond of trumping up violations to get you to move on). Were they all on break and decided to meet on this corner? They were literally blocking the sidewalk and couldn't seem to get out of each other's way

Officer Stringfellow cleaned of the plant debris and bag up that syringe very nicely in an evidence bag. Wonder who is going to get this planted in their belongings so that they can trump up a narcotics charge?

I understand that you were proving a point with this video about profiling. However, in the future, when you are asked to exit a vehicle by a leo, close and lock all doors and windows to the vehicle. Then exit the vehicle with your keys and lock driver's door. When they remove you they are escalating their investigation of you and you need to escalate your refusal to cooperate. Once outside your car, assume they are going to arrest you (they may not) and fall back on your Miranda rights. State you refuse consent to a search, you want an attorney and you are exercising you right to remain silent on video (hopefully being uploaded to a streaming site so they cannot erase the video that is on your phone). If they continue to question you restate you request for an attorney and you are remaining silent. When and if they bring out a dog, inform the officers that you want to try and capture all of the handler and dogs actions around your car from a safe distance from both. Also inform them that they are not to touch your vehicle (handlers like to touch you car and get the dog to alert to their hand and claim that it was a hit).

Typical religious news story on the news networks. Have a two segment discussion on an issue that needs at least double that to fully explore it. So both pundits are made to make short one or two sentence blurbs on their stand on this issue and accomplish nothing more than saying "I am for it" or "I am against it". If they aren't going to fully explore the issue don't waste the time.

Rev. Hargreaves is desperate to get his hypothesis taught as science. He really needs to sit down with actual scientists and find out how science has arrived at its conclusions. There is a process by which scientific concepts is accepted as being the best explaination of current observations. It isn't coming up with a hypothetical model of existence and teaching it in the classroom and having the children make their own decisions. It requires people who are trained and familiar with the particular subjects of science to rigorously test the hypothesis put forth to see if there is any validity to it.

Also Stephen Hawking is working on the fringe of theoretical physics, so I would assume much of his work is subject to being updated and corrected frequently. He is working in the realm of mathematics and conjecture of things that are hypothetical and undiscovered (even though we have seen the effects of what we believe to be black holes, they are still classified as hypothetical celestial objects). And guess what, none of it is taught in science courses in lower than university settings because it requires more than a rudimentary understanding of science to comprehend it.

So until Rev. Hargreaves can get his hypothesis on creationism tested and accepted through peer-reviewed science journals, he cannot expect it to be taught in any school setting as a science. And since it relies on a supernatual component, it will never pass that hurdle.

I thought it was asinine that he was even doing this stupid series. I kind of thought Discovery Networks needed a bigfoot show for their lineups and since Survivorman was free they slapped the two together. This just makes it really F'd up that they are bringing Judeo-Christian mythology into the Bigfoot mythology and broadcasting it on the Science Channel. The F'ing SCIENCE CHANNEL. Shouldn't there be some sort of evidence that can support their assertions before they put this load of $#!t on the Science Channel. You know, like Bigfoot really existing or that Judeo-Christian mythology has any verifiable facts that these giant angel/human hybrids ever existed? And then they play the magic card for why bigfoot have not being found. So they are psychics, that can cloud men's minds and turn invisible. Maybe they might want to listen to the old radio plays about Lamont Cranston or as he is known The Shadow as he might have been a bigfoot in disguise (has about the same chance of being real as well).

+MundaneMatt Excellent video. You brought both sides issues to the table and objectively attempted to represent them equally considering the information you could discover. I do believe that the LGBT tweeters had a knee-jerk response to these two students (who I personally feel knew more than you gave them credit for because of the backlash from the other students). Now I do think the school is in a gray area due to the other tweeters during school hours not getting reprimanded. Either I feel everyone gets equal treatment (all suspended who broke school rules) or everyone gets slap on wrist and warning not to do it again with the suspension being leveled next time. Because I could see a case being made by the suspended students to claim gender bias by the school even though the school is just enforcing its rules because the school isn't enforcing equally across the board.

Again great job and I will be exploring your channel to possibly subscribe.
