Scientific Consensus and Arguments from Authority

This is a great video talking about scientific consensus and arguments from authority.  In this day and age where anyone can write about anything they choose and make themselves come across as an authority to the masses, without any real credentials or evidence to back their claims up I think videos like the one below are more important than ever.  Same same can be said for the importance of actually reading scientific peer reviewed articles especially when they’re cited in blogs and papers.

Living as a Peaceful Warrior

Here is Dan Millman talking about living as a peaceful warrior.  Dan Millman is the writer of the book “Way of the Peaceful Warrior” and is in fact one of my favourite people.  He’s not a doctor or someone with a PhD in psychology but nonetheless I at very least like and draw inspiration from his approach to life and I find it enlightening to hear him speak.
