Science saved my soul

Posted by on December 22, 2010 in Thoughts | 4 comments

This video has been floating about the internet for a couple of months now, but I only just now got around to watching it. It gave me shivers, not just because the content, the concepts and the realisations within this monologue are so mind-blowingly amazing, but also because of how well Phil Hellenes describes the deep ramifications of these concepts.

More after the jump.

While at no stage does Phil ever say that there is definitely no god, nor does he say that there is, and the kind of curiosity and honest questioning he shows is something we should all aspire to. While I disagree with the idea of a soul, and the title is somewhat misleading in this respect, and I do reject the idea of a god, and most definitely reject the human-centric argument that is posited by theists, the video itself is very much the way I would like to approach the questions of our origins on earth, and closely aligns to my understanding of the way the universe works.

I’d be interested in your thoughts on this video. Please feel free to leave them below.

  1. What a great vid. Thanks for sharing. I can look past the words I take issue with because I agree with you that this guy did an excellent job conveying the feeling that I don’t even have the words to describe … when I think how thankful I am to be an atheist.

  3. I liked a lot of what Phil said, although it sounded a bit judgmental to me. I didn’t find it quite convincing as to why heavenly splendor and wonder should predicate no God. Phil did a good job of conveying some of religion’s evils though. I just didn’t see the connection from religion being bad to why there is no God.

    Thanks for the blog post. I don’t mean to disparage Phil’s video, I just wanted to give you feedback which you solicited.
