I love this series. These lectures are mind blowing and enthralling to one who does not already have knowledge of American history.
Best purchase I've made on Audible.
Maybe, it got its point across very well so I'm likely to move on to harder books.
Wolfson mentions that basically all of special relativity is derived based on the theory that the speed of light is always the same and everything else follows from that. It's really a staggering thought that a single premise as such would affect how time works.
Burden of proof.
Probably the chapter I like most was the one about climbing Mount Improbable. I've never heard someone explain why the burden of proof regarding God should not ever be placed at the feel of people who don't believe, and that I will never forget.
No, I need to be in the right mood to listen to Dawkins (the mood to pay attention and think).
Dawkins is too smart for me. I have a hard time following what he's saying sometimes which I suspect is just that I'm not smart enough, though I think this is partially the occasional switching of voices for quotations throwing me off.
Only if they're a fan of Penn & Teller, and in particular Penn.
Still can't tell what the point of the novel is, but more stories and more rambling was still entertaining to listen to. Sorta like listening to a friend's stories.
Probably would listen again in a few years. I'm a fan of Penn & Teller and quite enjoy listening to Penn rambling.
I couldn't really discern what the overall point was, if there is one.
If you like Penn & Teller you might enjoy this. Try listening to an episode of his podcast first maybe, as it's just about as rambly as this is.
