This has probably been posted here before, but I love it so much I wanted to share it. It is a "9 minute beat poem" called "Storm", by Tim Minchin. It definitely is a great demonstration of a skeptic vs a new ager.

Storm (with words, by Tim Minchin)

And even if you are familiar with it, you may not know that they're actually doing an animated movie version! It is being professionally done, and will be free when completed. You can find out more about it here - www.stormmovie.net

Enjoy!

Yep, Jaume. Lunatics, malcontents and religious nutters to America, overpopulated Scots to Canada, convicts to Australia, and the rest to exploit as cheap labour and captive markets. What is remarkable is that the rest of the world allowed a little west European island to dominate it for so long!

And they used to send their convicts to Australia. Seems like the Brits colonized the world for no other reason than asylums and penitentiaries got in the way of their golf courses and game huntings.

Adriana,
You are aware that he hasn't practised in the UK for many years, but has a thriving practice somewhere in the States (Texas, I think)?

Anti-vaxxers will make a martyr out of Wakefield.

Maybe instead of a human baby, they use a puppy? If he is simply stating things that people might assume a human baby would be thinking, the change of species should bear that out, I would think.
Comment by Cara Coleen on May 6, 2010 at 1:21pm
...and more specific than the baby wants some milk. What baby would turn down a bottle?
Comment by Cara Coleen on May 6, 2010 at 1:21pm
Yeah Dave, that's what I was thinking. It has to be verifiable!
Comment by Dave G on May 6, 2010 at 12:16pm
If the babies are too young to talk, how can what he claims to be seeing be verified? It's like claiming to know what a dog is thinking.
