Free Evolution and Science dvds. Thanks to a multi-billion dollar medical institute!
The Howard Hughes Medical Institute offers free dvds which contain lectures on various topics, from AIDS, to evolution.  Here are some of them:

  • Evolution: Fossils, Genes, and Mousetraps
  • Evolution: Constant Change and Common Threads
  • The Science of Fat
  • The Double Life of RNA
  • AIDS: The Evolution of an Epidemic
The first is a lecture by Kenneth Miller, and it is a basic introduction to evolution lecture.  He also criticizes Michael Behe's irreducibly complex arguments, and even shows a few clips from the Colbert Report.  He also argues for the compatability of religion and science.  The second evolution dvd has four lectures (each an hour long) going over the basics of evolution, and explaining the mechanisms of it.  It also includes a 70 minute discussion on whether evolution and science is compatable with religion.  I haven't viewed the other ones yet.  The production quality is fantastic, and the sound and picture quality are perfect. 

And they're completely free (no shipping charge as well).  I suggest ordering x3 of these so that you can hand some out to relatives, random people, etc.  

Here's the link to the HHMI site where you can order these. 

And help spread the link around!

Well, it looks like this community is dead, but on the off-chance that anyone still checks it:

[info]gifted_teens   is the first, and presently the only, community for gifted teenagers on livejournal.  If you're a gifted teen, or a parent, teacher, or friend of one, come check us out.  Even better, tell anyone you think might be interested.
Have a good day!

Hey, just came across this place, thought I should say i'm here. I consider my self well on the way to becoming brilliant so I thought I might fit, or not, you decide. I am fascinated by the idea of brilliance and respect someone who allows themselves to accept that they are brilliant and not lower their ability to the level of those around them. But I won't bore you with my own brilliance just yet, I'm sure that'll come later. Fantastic name by the way.
