  1. gravity is just a theory? theory in science doesn't mean hypothesis, critical thinker. try critically learning

  2. His conclusion is, if you are capable of critical thinking, you should "teach yourself" (rather than listen to a teacher, or read a book, or take advantage of research already done by others) is bullshit. He just got done showing us how to do research and winnow out facts, then says "but the true advantage of being able to do it is to not do it that way."

  3. good video. I don't think everyone agrees with what the United States is. Look in a law dictionary. You will be surprised.

  5. The young man in front of the machine with the blue gloves. Thank you for getting back with me. Sincerely, Kimberley

  6. Greetings, I came across your video, and the young man in the video looks like my son Erich Steward. Is it he?My son is mentally challenged, so I thought perhaps this is him. Would you be so kind as to inform me if in fact this is my son Erich Steward?Thank you for your time and consideration.Sincerely,Mrs. K. [email protected]

  7. Why show a world map when the statement was only about American football? Why refer to sports around the world?

    Also, more people attend MLB than NFL games strictly by sheer number of games alone. You need to add up all the people attending, then divide by the number of total games to even get a round about number on that.

    As for gravity….and critical thinking, how many people questioned this without thinking critically and researching? And you Mr Teacher, commented to one person, you were being facetious?
    Is gravity a theory or a fact?
    "Newton's Theory of Gravity did a pretty good job, but Einstein's Theory of Relativity does a better job of explaining it. These explanations are called theories, and will always be theories. They can't be changed into laws, because laws are different things. Laws describe, and theories explain.

  8. I don't agree with the claim "If you learn how to think critically, you can teach yourself". Critical thinking is also possible with the participation of others. To build critical thinking can also be a collective effort, not so much individual. So based on the video, I would say that the claim is only sometimes true.

  9. Excellent video. My only criticism is the use of the word "theory" in regards to gravity. Theory in general everyday use is used to mean something not very well proven or shaky. While in science it stands as the most rigorous of scientific explanations. So saying that gravity is a theory, means that the evidence supporting it is monumental just like evolution. Perhaps you meant that nothing van be really proven to 100% certainty. Anyway great vid!!

  10. We are looking for more amazing people to join us in the mountains of southern Costa Rica. Our eco-village is absolutely paradise with thousands of fruit trees planted, great neighbors, lots of water, etc. Send me email at [email protected] message if you are interested. No more rat race.

  11. The things this video were talking about are the things I learned by watching the tv show How to Get Away With Murder.

    "Discredit everything!"

  12. So it's true that "a conclusion is just the place where you stop thinking." Each book I read is going to reference 10 other books which reference 10 other book which reference 10 other books; how do I know when I've done enough research?
    "Gravity is still just a theory." Thank you! This is a hunch in a philosophy called science, (you can read all about it in a philosophy-of-science – or history-of-science book). The vast evidence of gravity that has actually been triple-blind tested is in far-less than .000000000000000000000000000001% of space-time (not a very "vast" sum of knowledge). We have a LOT to learn!!
    It must be really hard to think critically – so how do you really know if you're critically thinking about critically thinking? Do you really understand what happens when you introspect or question another's logic/motives? (Who was it who said: "A great many people think they are thinking when they are really rearranging their prejudices.")

  13. A theory: A hunch or assumption based on little or fragmented evidence. 
    A Scientific Theory: A comprehensive explanation of some aspect of nature that is supported by a vast body of evidence.
    Please don't use the public use of theory and scientific theories in the same context.

  14. After watching your video I've come to the conclusion that  censoring a painting from the Sistine Chapel clearly shows the small town approach and mindset of most US citizens when it comes to art and nudity.

  15. People I want to tell you an urgent and very important message, and I want to say this very seriously, that this may be the last warning to America and to all the nations of the world ! Please come to Jesus Christ the Son of God now ! Repent, for the Kingdom of Heaven has come near ! I'm telling you that this is the generation that will witness to the second coming of Jesus Christ on the earth… and that will take place immediately after a period of Great Tribulation of maximum 7 years that is about to start taking place all around the earth… I'm sure many of you heard about the New World Order… I'm telling you this is not a conspiracy theory… this is very real… and the New World Order is now proclaimed in many nations all around the world, and it is about to be launched at the global level… bringing a one world government and a one world economic system based on RFID Chips, and I'm telling you whoever takes that RFID Chip, even if he comes to repentance… he will never be able to receive the forgiveness of sins from God, and therefore he will burn in hell for eternity… therefore I'm telling you all… please come to Jesus Christ the Son of God now, do not delay repentance, for you do not know if you will reach home tonight, or if you will wake up in the morning… and therefore where will you reach then, or where will you wake up ? I'm telling you hell is so real, you just don't want to wake up there one day… but you also can't get to Heaven without Jesus Christ… I'm telling you, evolution is a devastating lie that came right from the mouth the devil… and religion that says that whoever simply believes in God… but does the will of the devil, and somehow he will be saved… is an absolute hypocrisy… Jesus Christ the Son of God said very clearly in John 14:6: "I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through Me." I warn every single one of you here who reads this message, not because I so like to judge people and warn them, but because I want to tell you something very seriously, that you just don't realize how many traps the devil has placed for people at the global level… and he is desperately waiting to steal, kill, and destroy as many people as he will manage to… and the coming events… when they will start, it's going to be like an avalanche, when it will start, it will destroy everything in its way until it reaches the end… it's going to be overwhelming…
    I urge you to put your hope in Jesus Christ, He is the Son of God who came 2000 years ago, and taught people how to live right, moral, and holy in speech and acts, but many people did not want to listen to Him, and few were those who actually listened to Him, and took Him in serious, and followed Him… but the pharisees, the sadducees, and the scribes were the ones who were against Him, and wronged Him, and crucified Him, but because He was without sin, and because He was righteous, and holy in everything He said and did… even death could not stand against Him… He rose from the dead on the third day… being the Only True Savior for the human being, humanity, people… and He is coming very soon to judge the living and the dead… only those who truly believe in Him, not only by saying that they believe, but by living according to the faith, and living the way the Bible teaches that a true believer must live, only these people will be delivered from the Day of Judgement and from hell, and will be saved, and will be taken directly into the Kingdom of Heaven to live forever with Jesus Christ in the direct presence of God…
    I just want to tell you one more thing that I want you to understand very clearly, repentance is not a religious term, it is simply when man comes in his room alone, it does not have to be in front of some people or something… the man comes in his room alone, and comes in prayer to God in the Name of Jesus Christ, and simply prays this prayer: "Lord Jesus, I know that You have died on that cross in my place, for my sins, and You rose from the dead on the third day, just to give me salvation Lord. Father please forgive me of my sins, and please save me from the Day of Judgement and from hell, and after death, please save me and take me directly in Your Kingdom God, I pray to you Father from Heaven, in the Name of Jesus Christ. Amen".

  16. the only thing i don't like about this video is that the phrase "just a theory" came up. scientific theories refer to a comprehensive explanation of some aspect of nature that is supported by a vast body of evidence.
