Neil deGrasse Tyson - Surprising Video

#1
So there I am, collecting clips, watching videos as part of my process of creating the next video on my channel, which is under the working title of "Is Atheism Coherent?". Then I saw a video about Neil deGrasse Tyson that actually surprised me and challenged me a bit.

I know Neil has said some pretty whacky things about consciousness and I don't pardon or excuse him for that, I think he has to answer for his weird comments, but in terms of atheism, he's not pro-atheism and he makes some really interesting points that I want to make myself.

What do you think guys? Does this change your view of him?

How does that differ from simply pasting the URL into some text? Does it actually copy the URL contents to Skeptiko - thus preventing it from being censored in the future?

Frankly, I dunno. I can insert a video by simply pasting a URL, true enough, as immediately below:


But if there's no difference with the method I posted, I'm left wondering why they provide two different ways of doing the same thing...
