Very interesting video. He mentions Baghdad in the period from 800-1100 CE. It is interesting to contemplate what was occurring in christianity in the same time frame. The crusades played a major role in bring a highly prolific period of discovery to an end.

When one looks at all of the crazy anti-intellectual legislation being purposed in state legislatures and in Washington D.C., it is hard not to conclude that history is repeating itself.

Good clip with good points. I wanted to vote for Neil DeGrasse Tyson during the last election cycle, but I was unaware of Montana's system of "approved" write-in candidates. I seem to recall that Rosanne Barr was one of the approved write-ins, which pretty much substantiates the points in this video.
