10 Ocean Phenomena You Won’t Believe Actually Exist

Oceans are vast and fascinatingly beautiful. Due to this expanse, they are vastly unexplored and host a lot of incredible and often mysterious phenomena. The ocean depths conceal great secrets. Even though some of them were deciphered and explained by chemists, climatologists and other scientists, there is still a lot to be discovered, described and understood. So here we go, with the most extraordinary ocean phenomena.

Before science, this might be cause for superstition.

Falun Gong Takes Over New York

Over 8,000 Falun Gong practitioners flooded the streets of New York, in a massive parade cutting across the heart of Manhattan. Despite a bloody persecution that's lasted over a decade, the Falun Gong spiritual practice has spread outside the confines of oppression in China. And it turns out Falun Gong, also known as Falun Dafa, has a foreign face as well...

A Fox News Host Really Said This About Noah's Ark

*Fox News host Bill Hemmer on Wednesday suggested that Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 may never be found because "it took us 2,000 years to find Noah's Ark." Former FAA spokesperson Scott Brenner told Fox News on Tuesday that the pilots of the missing flight had intentions of taking the plane in a different direction before they last spoke to air traffic control. In his Wednesday coverage of the new details, Hemmer pointed out to aviation attorney Salvatore Lagonia that the plane could have ended up in Pakistan or the Indian Ocean...

Hey Bill Nye, How Do I Escape Religion?

Today's #TuesdaysWithBill question deals with the unending conflict between science and religion. How does someone who has grown up indoctrinated with religious thinking break the old mold and learn to embrace science and reason?

It's important to adopt a critical approach to life and familiarize oneself with skeptical thinking. Stick to the facts. Evaluate claims. Judge for yourself whether the things people say are truly steeped in reason, or if it's all just wool over your eyes. These mindsets take time and effort to develop, so don't get discouraged if you don't become a totally rational, skeptical thinker on day 1.

All that said, there is one thing Bill cannot stress enough though: Do not confuse skepticism with cynicism.


Hey Bill. I’m Andrew LaRue. I’m from northwest Ohio. Thanks for taking my question. My question is where — I’ve been indoctrinated with religion most of my life and I am 20 years old right now and I’m just kind of opening my mind up to what I’ve learned from science. And I’m just kind of wondering kind of by reeducating myself because religion is all I’ve really ever known. So I’m just looking to start over. Thank you.

Why There is No Free Tibet

Will there ever be a free Tibet? After decades of cultural genocide, religious persecution, murder, and disappearances, tensions between China and Tibetans are boiling. On this episode of China Uncensored, Chris Chappell tells the bloodstained history of modern Tibet, from the invasion by the Chinese Communist Party in 1950, to the exile of the Dalai Lama, the questionable death of the Panchen Lama, riot after riot, protest after protest, a flood of immigration from Han and Hui Chinese ethnicities, even to the Chinese regime's decision to ban reincarnation without government permission. And with over one hundred self-immolation since 2009, what does the future hold for Tibet.

Host Paul Stein welcomes Falun Dafa practitioner Brett Price as this week's special guest. In this episode, Brett talks about the origins, the core tenets and the spiritual, emotional and physical benefits derived from the cultivation practice of Falun Gong. There are over a hundred million Falun Gong practitioners worldwide.

Sadly, there is a dark side to this interview.

As of 1999, hundreds of thousands of Falun Gong practitioners have been incarcerated in labour camps. There, they face long, brutal hours of coerced labour -- manufacturing "stuff" for the West's consumer addictions -- as well as torture and murder. The healthy ones, who have been deemed to possess the right blood type, are put on a 'donor list' whereby their organs are forcibly harvested -- many while they are still alive -- to feed a multi-million dollar organ transplant industry.

China is Tearing Down Christian Crosses

It's known as the Chinese Jerusalem. Wenzhou, Zhejiang Province has one of the highest concentrations of Christians in China. But for over a year, local authorities have launched a systematic campaign to demolish churches and tear down crosses. It's part of a larger persecution of Chinese Christians that has risen by 150% in the last year, according to China Aid, a non-profit international Christian human rights organization.

Michael Shermer talk: The Threat of Pseudoscience

This half hour lecture is from the McGill University's Lorne Trottier Public Science Symposium on the confrontation and threat of pseudoscience in contemporary society. As a leading figure in this movement, Dr. Michael Shermer is more than qualified to speak on many of the issues. His down-to-earth style coupled with his laundry list of first hand encounters with the baloney of our day make this presentation (as well as many of his others) an absolute treat to watch.

I myself do not own the copyright to this material. As stated previously, this was filmed, funded, and produced by McGill University, and so far as I can tell, this is their intellectual property. I have uploaded it here so that it may reach a greater audience and showcase the truly great work of the presenter and the hosts. If anyone should wish for me to take it down, I would oblige.

Michael Shermer | Talks at Google

Michael Shermer discusses his book "Mind of the Market" as part of the Authors@Google series.

How did we evolve from ancient hunter-gatherers to modern consumer-traders? Why are people so irrational when it comes to money and business? Bestselling author Dr. Michael Shermer argues that evolution provides an answer to both of these questions through the new science of evolutionary economics. Drawing on research from neuroeconomics, Shermer explores what brain scans reveal about bargaining, snap purchases, and how trust is established in business. Utilizing experiments in behavioral economics, Michael Shermer shows why people hang on to losing stocks and failing companies, why business negotiations often disintegrate into emotional tit-for-tat disputes, and why money does not make us happy.

Employing research from complexity theory, Shermer shows how evolution and economics are both examples of a larger phenomenon of complex adaptive systems. Along the way, Shermer answers such provocative questions as: Do our tribal roots mean that we will always be a sucker for brands? How is the biochemical joy of sex similar to the rewards of business cooperation? How can nations increase trust within and between their borders? Finally, Shermer considers the consequences of globalization and what will happen if nations allow free trade across their borders.

This event took place January 29, 2008 at Google Headquarters in Mountain View, CA.

You only live once! David Mitchell wonders if living in the moment is really the answer?

Hey Bill Nye, "How Do We Know the Earth Is Round?"

Modern "theories" suggesting the Earth is flat are ignorant of basic experiential data, historical scientific findings, and how technologies like smartphone functions, says Bill Nye the Science Guy.

Transcript - Matt Harden: Hey Bill, can you prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the earth is a sphere and not flat? I have a lot of Facebook friends who say that it's an act. Thank you.

Bill Nye: Is the earth flat or round? It's round. Now, let's see, how do we go about proving that? Go to the seashore. Go to the seashore and figure out why you can't, if you live on the East Coast figure out why you can't see Spain from the East Coast or North America? It looks like you might have a St. Louis hat on. I'm not sure. Just go to the middle of the Mississippi River and look south. Why can't you see Louisiana? Why can't you see New Orleans? What's the problem there? Then climb a tower or go to the top of a hill or a mountain and you'll see a little farther, but you will not see to the other side of the earth, places we know to exist. For example, I've been to London. I can tell you other people have. I've been to Vancouver British Columbia and you cannot see Vancouver British Columbia from Boise Idaho, let alone from New York City Or Toronto or what have you. Just start there then if you'd like look at pictures from space where you see the earth as a sphere. Those pictures are not faked. And I'll tell you if nothing else here is why you can tell they're not faked. Just to create the paperwork that NASA has created, NASA in this one case, just the paperwork to send anything out in space, to send people into orbit or to send them to the moon, that amount of paperwork would make faking it prohibitively expensive. No one could afford to generate that much documentation.

Then the other thing if you want to get into this, if your friends are really serious, have them get on a boat or a ship and go out at sea and you'll noticed you can't see infinitely far. Furthermore, if you get into it enough pick up a book about navigation or go online and learn about navigation. A very, very Important thing you have to take into account when you try to navigate the ocean from a ship or a boat is how high you are off the sea surface. The higher you are off the sea surface the farther you can see, the farther away the horizon is. Now, this discovery that the world is round was made - I'm going to say it was published in 1540. Now, I concerned - it was Copernicus, I'm concerned it might have been 1530, but it was about then. It was in the 16th century that the earth was shown to be a ball. But it was known to be a ball by a lot of other people before Copernicus in the Western World, what we now call the Western World the western hemisphere. The ancient Greeks noticed that from time to time the earth casts a shadow on the moon. This is a lunar eclipse's where the moon gets in the shadow of the earth, the sunlight is being blocked by the earth, the moon is on the far side of the earth. And that shadow is always curved. And the only shape that always produces a curve, no matter what the orientation, that is to say whether you're standing in Greece at night or if you're standing then 12 hours later in Buenos Aries at night, the shadow is always curved. So the ancient Greeks knew that the earth was a ball. They didn't know the size of it to the degree of precision we know now.

And you guys, come on, everybody watches newscasts. You all use mobile phones. You all see airplanes fly around. You all go to see Ed Sheeran in concert one day in London, another day in the Melbourne Australia. This all depends of our fundamental understanding of the size of the earth and its shape with extraordinary precision. And if you want to get into it the earth isn't quite a sphere, it's a little it's [NOISE], its spin is a [NOISE] stretched, it made it slightly oblate as the saying goes. This is all susceptible to analysis, but spend some time learning about navigation. Tell your friends to spend some time learning about navigation. Navigation has change the world, by the way. What are you wearing? You're wearing stuff that came from another part of the world on a ship. It didn't get here by magic, it got here through science.

"Science and the paranormal" a talk by Joe Schwarcz

Since the dawn of civilization humans have been fascinated by phenomena which appear to lie outside the scope of science. Our history is peppered with accounts of psychics predicting the future, mediums conversing with the dead, and aliens in UFO's abducting earthlings. Today the likes of Deepak Chopra confuse people with their quantum psychobabble and there is widespread belief that the moon and planets influence our behavior, that "psychic surgeons" can remove tumors without making incisions and that Uri Geller bends spoons with the power of his mind.

Do these effects really lie outside the scope of modern day science? This lecture examines paranormal phenomena and describes how many of the effects can be explained by perfectly "natural" means. The presentation is highlighted by a number of "demonstrations" aimed at increasing the awareness of the need to evaluate "paranormal" phenomena by critical scientific methods.

The public image and public relations of the Church of Scientology has never been at such a low point as it is now.

Scientology is literally collapsing right before our eyes and its leader, David Miscavige, is not dealing with this in any kind of effective or reasonable manner.
