The arrogance of being thick as a brick

The footage regarding black holes came from a BBC documentary. The only clip that appears still to be available is here:

The Lawrence krauss lecture "A Universe from nothing" can be found here:

I apologise for referring to "middle earth" rather than "middle world".

If you want to engage them about science, I can think of no one better qualified to so so than Neil deGrasse Tyson.  If this interview he did with Steven Colbert doesn't help, I don't know what will!

sometimes a little arrogance is a good thing :)  loved the video, now how can i share it with my believing friends and family without pissing them off?

Loren, I also saw this, and I concur. What always impresses me with these ladies and gentlemen in the scientific pursuits is their willingness to say "I don't know" and their willingness to give up on, as it were, their own hypothesis and commomly held theories if they are proven counter to a newer, much more complete theory. Arrogance indeed. Ha!
