I just saw this amazing video, you might like it:
Einstein's Discovery - short film entry to " Your Film Festival "

Justin Dowd is a fourth year physics and math major here at Northeastern. This phenomenal “chalkimation” video about Einstein’s daydream discovery of relativity won him a ticket to outer space (yeah…outer space) through the Metro’s Race for Space competition. Not only is Dowd brilliant enough to explain relativity in simple terms, he’s also an artist (he drew all of the beautiful chalk images in the video), a musician (he composed and played the piano tune in the video) and a self-proclaimed “jock.” Can we say renaissance man?

Social Networking can be amazing. Without it I would not have been able to witness +Colin Faulkingham's thirty-one days of creativity. Thanks Colin!

At one time the church could not reconcile the theory of gravity with the existence of god, and chose condemn Galileo [Pope John Paul II in 2000 apologized for the churches error in this matter.(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Galileo_affair)] The leading candidates for president in the republican party would appear to be on the path of doing the same thing to evolutionary biologists and climate scientists (http://www.nytimes.com/2011/08/29/opinion/republicans-against-science.html?_r=1&smid=tw-NytimesKrugman&seid=auto).

Do I know that climate change is real and man made? No, but I deeply suspect it to be so since it is in agreement with a number of scientific principles, and I have yet to see a well reasoned argument that would lead me to suspect otherwise. Do I believe that climate scientists have created 'climate change' to secure funding? No, no more than I think cancer biologists created cancer to secure funding. Do I know that the theory of evolution is true? Yes, as well as i know what will happen if I drop an apple on the earth or that the earth revolves around the sun.

It seems to me that if you cannot reconcile the theory of evolution with the existence of god, your faith must not be very strong.
