QualiaSoup: Skewed views of Science [Video]

IMO, QualiaSoup produces some of the most concise explanations of the topic in focus and produces videos with a good production value; I even use them at [Seek The Evidence] http://seektheevidence.org as a way of explaining various topics.

This particular video takes a look at the pitfalls of arguing against science from incomprehension or emotion.
