The Privileged Planet: The Search for Purpose in the Universe

- if you scroll down a bit you can find the link to the video.

"Today, most scientists and philosophers claim that Earth is an ordinary speck of dust adrift, without purpose or significance, in a vast cosmic sea." This idea (popularized by the late astronomer, Carl Sagan) is sometimes referred to as the Copernican Principle. This video (based I believe on the book of the same name) presents a different view of things.
- this is a good introduction to the topic of Intelligent Design.
- books to read; 'A privileged Planet', and 'Rare Earth'
