  • THE REASON
  • 00:00:40.000 --> 00:00:40.140
  • FOR EVERYTHING PHYSICAL,
  • 00:00:40.140 --> 00:00:41.090
  • HOWEVER SECTIONED,
  • 00:00:41.090 --> 00:00:43.100
  • HOWEVER SPLICED, WILL ULTIMATELY
  • 00:00:43.100 --> 00:00:45.220
  • POINT TO A CAUSE
  • 00:00:45.220 --> 00:00:48.020
  • OUTSIDE OF ITSELF.
  • 00:00:48.020 --> 00:00:49.020
  • THAT'S THE FIRST STAGE
  • 00:00:49.020 --> 00:00:50.080
  • OF THE ARGUMENT.
  • 00:00:50.080 --> 00:00:51.070
  • NO MATTER HOW YOU SECTION
  • 00:00:51.070 --> 00:00:52.270
  • ANY PHYSICAL QUANTITY,
  • 00:00:52.270 --> 00:00:54.230
  • YOU WILL ALWAYS END UP
  • 00:00:54.230 --> 00:00:55.230
  • WITH A STATE OF AFFAIRS
  • 00:00:55.230 --> 00:00:57.060
  • WHERE IT DOES NOT EXPLAIN
  • 00:00:57.060 --> 00:00:58.150
  • ITS OWN EXISTENCE.
  • 00:00:58.150 --> 00:01:00.150
  • THEN YOU GET
  • 00:01:00.150 --> 00:01:01.030
  • TO THE SECOND STAGE
  • 00:01:01.030 --> 00:01:02.030
  • OF THE ARGUMENT.
  • 00:01:02.030 --> 00:01:02.220
  • THE SECOND STAGE
  • 00:01:02.220 --> 00:01:03.130
  • OF THE ARGUMENT
  • 00:01:03.130 --> 00:01:04.080
  • RUNS SOMETHING LIKE THIS:
  • 00:01:04.080 --> 00:01:06.020
  • WHENEVER YOU SEE
  • 00:01:06.020 --> 00:01:07.020
  • INTELLIGIBILITY
  • 00:01:07.020 --> 00:01:08.050
  • AND SPECIFIED COMPLEXITY,
  • 00:01:08.050 --> 00:01:10.160
  • ESPECIALLY
  • 00:01:10.160 --> 00:01:11.090
  • IN THE NATURE OF LANGUAGE
  • 00:01:11.090 --> 00:01:13.150
  • AND ABSTRACT REASONING --
  • 00:01:13.150 --> 00:01:16.080
  • WHENEVER YOU SEE
  • 00:01:16.080 --> 00:01:17.030
  • INTELLIGIBILITY
  • 00:01:17.030 --> 00:01:18.290
  • OR SPECIFIED COMPLEXITY,
  • 00:01:19.020 --> 00:01:22.020
  • ESPECIALLY
  • 00:01:22.020 --> 00:01:22.200
  • IN THE NATURE OF LANGUAGE
  • 00:01:22.200 --> 00:01:23.260
  • AND ABSTRACT REASONING,
  • 00:01:23.260 --> 00:01:25.250
  • YOU ALWAYS ASSUME
  • 00:01:25.250 --> 00:01:27.150
  • AN INTELLIGENCE BEHIND IT.
  • 00:01:28.030 --> 00:01:31.030
  • YOU WOULD NEVER LOOK AT
  • 00:01:31.030 --> 00:01:32.100
  • A SONNET BY SHAKESPEARE
  • 00:01:32.100 --> 00:01:34.150
  • AND ASSUME THAT
  • 00:01:34.150 --> 00:01:35.170
  • A MILLION MONKEYS
  • 00:01:35.170 --> 00:01:36.110
  • POUNDING ON SOME TYPEWRITERS
  • 00:01:36.110 --> 00:01:37.280
  • OR COMPUTERS
  • 00:01:37.280 --> 00:01:38.280
  • ULTIMATELY PRODUCED THAT SONNET.
  • 00:01:38.280 --> 00:01:41.220
  • YOU WILL NEVER LOOK
  • 00:01:41.220 --> 00:01:42.170
  • AT A DICTIONARY AND SAY
  • 00:01:42.170 --> 00:01:44.040
  • IT COULD HAVE DEVELOPED
  • 00:01:44.040 --> 00:01:44.210
  • BECAUSE OF AN EXPLOSION
  • 00:01:44.210 --> 00:01:45.260
  • IN A PRINTING PRESS.
  • 00:01:47.000 --> 00:01:50.000
  • NEVER.
  • 00:01:50.000 --> 00:01:51.110
  • WHENEVER YOU SEE
  • 00:01:51.110 --> 00:01:52.030
  • INTELLIGIBILITY
  • 00:01:52.030 --> 00:01:53.060
  • OR SPECIFIED COMPLEXITY,
  • 00:01:53.060 --> 00:01:55.050
  • YOU ALWAYS ASSUME
  • 00:01:55.050 --> 00:01:56.110
  • AN INTELLIGENCE BEHIND IT.
  • 00:01:56.110 --> 00:01:58.170
  • IF YOU WERE TO WALK
  • 00:01:58.170 --> 00:01:59.060
  • ONTO A PLANET THAT
  • 00:01:59.060 --> 00:02:00.290
  • WAS TOTALLY FOREIGN TO YOU,
  • 00:02:00.290 --> 00:02:03.220
  • AND YOU SAW ONE MILLION PEBBLES
  • 00:02:04.290 --> 00:02:07.290
  • IN A PERFECT TRIANGLE,
  • 00:02:07.290 --> 00:02:10.030
  • YOU CAN REASONABLY SAY
  • 00:02:10.030 --> 00:02:12.090
  • THAT IT HAPPENED
  • 00:02:12.090 --> 00:02:12.290
  • OVER 15 BILLION YEARS,
  • 00:02:12.290 --> 00:02:14.230
  • IT JUST CAME TOGETHER.
  • 00:02:14.230 --> 00:02:16.020
  • YOU CAN ASSUME THAT.
  • 00:02:16.020 --> 00:02:17.230
  • YOU CAN ASSUME THAT, BECAUSE
  • 00:02:17.230 --> 00:02:19.100
  • IT'S AN AESTHETIC DESIGN.
  • 00:02:19.100 --> 00:02:22.080
  • BUT IF YOU WALKED
  • 00:02:22.080 --> 00:02:22.280
  • ONTO THAT PLATFORM
  • 00:02:22.280 --> 00:02:24.010
  • AND SAW ONE PIECE OF PAPER,
  • 00:02:24.010 --> 00:02:26.270
  • AND SAID, "HELLO, JOHN.
  • 00:02:26.270 --> 00:02:29.170
  • I HOPE YOU BROUGHT SOME
  • 00:02:29.170 --> 00:02:30.200
  • GOOD INDIAN RECIPES WITH YOU,"
  • 00:02:32.090 --> 00:02:35.090
  • WOULD YOU, FOR EVEN
  • 00:02:35.090 --> 00:02:36.230
  • ONE SOLITARY MOMENT,
  • 00:02:36.230 --> 00:02:39.140
  • THINK THAT 15 BILLION YEARS
  • 00:02:39.140 --> 00:02:41.060
  • HAD PUT THAT SENTENCE TOGETHER?
  • 00:02:42.100 --> 00:02:45.100
  • TELL ME THE TRUTH.
  • 00:02:45.100 --> 00:02:48.040
  • YOU'RE LOOKING AT LANGUAGE.
  • 00:02:48.040 --> 00:02:50.180
  • YOU'RE LOOKING AT SENSE.
  • 00:02:50.180 --> 00:02:52.140
  • WHEN A SPACESHIP BLOWS UP,
  • 00:02:52.140 --> 00:02:54.060
  • WE SAY, WHAT WENT WRONG?
  • 00:02:58.200 --> 00:03:01.220
  • WHEN OUR ASTRONAUTS
  • 00:03:01.220 --> 00:03:02.250
  • LANDED ON THE MOON,
  • 00:03:02.250 --> 00:03:05.060
  • THERE WASN'T A PIECE OF PAPER
  • 00:03:05.060 --> 00:03:06.200
  • THERE TO WELCOME THEM,
  • 00:03:06.200 --> 00:03:08.260
  • AND YET THE VOICE WAS HEARD
  • 00:03:08.260 --> 00:03:11.000
  • ACROSS THE TENS OF
  • 00:03:11.000 --> 00:03:12.000
  • THOUSANDS OF MILES.
  • 00:03:12.000 --> 00:03:13.170
  • WHAT THEY SAW WAS ENOUGH
  • 00:03:13.170 --> 00:03:15.160
  • TO PROMPT THEM TO SAY
  • 00:03:15.160 --> 00:03:17.100
  • THE OPENING LINES
  • 00:03:17.100 --> 00:03:18.250
  • OF THE WORD OF GOD,
  • 00:03:18.250 --> 00:03:20.010
  • "IN THE BEGINNING,
  • 00:03:20.010 --> 00:03:21.050
  • GOD CREATED THE HEAVENS
  • 00:03:21.050 --> 00:03:22.260
  • AND THE EARTH."
  • 00:03:22.260 --> 00:03:24.250
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:03:27.200 --> 00:03:30.200
  • NOT ONE OF YOU,
  • 00:03:30.200 --> 00:03:32.260
  • HEARING THE FIRST WORDS
  • 00:03:32.260 --> 00:03:34.020
  • FROM THE MOUTH OF YOUR CHILD,
  • 00:03:34.020 --> 00:03:36.230
  • "MUMMY," OR "DADDY,"
  • 00:03:36.280 --> 00:03:39.280
  • OR THE SIMPLE EPITAPH,
  • 00:03:39.280 --> 00:03:42.040
  • "I LOVE YOU,"
  • 00:03:42.280 --> 00:03:45.280
  • WILL THINK FOR A MOMENT,
  • 00:03:45.280 --> 00:03:48.150
  • IT IS A RANDOM QUALICATION
  • 00:03:48.150 --> 00:03:50.100
  • OF ATOMS UTTERING TO YOU
  • 00:03:50.100 --> 00:03:52.000
  • SOME UNFATHOMABLE MYSTERIES.
  • 00:03:53.100 --> 00:03:56.100
  • CHRISTOPHER HITCHENS,
  • 00:03:56.100 --> 00:03:58.070
  • DANIEL DENNETT,
  • 00:03:58.070 --> 00:03:59.250
  • AND SAM HARRIS
  • 00:03:59.250 --> 00:04:01.060
  • HAD BETTER BEWARE,
  • 00:04:01.060 --> 00:04:03.280
  • BECAUSE THE ONE QUESTION
  • 00:04:03.280 --> 00:04:05.090
  • THEY ARE RAISING AGAINST
  • 00:04:05.090 --> 00:04:07.210
  • THE EXISTENCE OF GOD
  • 00:04:07.210 --> 00:04:10.010
  • IS THAT THERE'S SO MUCH
  • 00:04:10.010 --> 00:04:11.050
  • OF EVIL IN THIS WORLD,
  • 00:04:11.050 --> 00:04:12.230
  • WHICH IS SUCH
  • 00:04:12.230 --> 00:04:13.100
  • A SELF-DEFEATING ARGUMENT.
  • 00:04:13.230 --> 00:04:16.230
  • I WAS IN MINNESOTA
  • 00:04:16.230 --> 00:04:18.100
  • THREE DAYS AGO,
  • 00:04:18.100 --> 00:04:19.290
  • AND THE HEAD OF
  • 00:04:19.290 --> 00:04:20.220
  • THE ATHEISTIC ASSOCIATION
  • 00:04:20.220 --> 00:04:21.200
  • OF MINNEAPOLIS CAME,
  • 00:04:21.200 --> 00:04:23.010
  • AND HE WAS TAKING ME ON
  • 00:04:23.010 --> 00:04:24.060
  • TOE-TO-TOE,
  • 00:04:24.060 --> 00:04:25.110
  • AND THE ANGRIEST HE BECAME
  • 00:04:25.110 --> 00:04:27.190
  • WAS WHEN HE WAS
  • 00:04:27.190 --> 00:04:28.040
  • TALKING ABOUT GOD!
  • 00:04:28.160 --> 00:04:31.160
  • "GOD IS
  • 00:04:31.160 --> 00:04:32.030
  • THE GREATEST ABORTIONIST."
  • 00:04:32.030 --> 00:04:32.290
  • I SAID, "WHAT'S WRONG
  • 00:04:32.290 --> 00:04:33.140
  • WITH THAT?"
  • 00:04:34.200 --> 00:04:37.200
  • "AND WHAT'S WRONG WITH THAT?
  • 00:04:38.190 --> 00:04:41.190
  • YOU JUST SAID
  • 00:04:41.190 --> 00:04:42.240
  • THAT YOU DENY ANYTHING
  • 00:04:42.240 --> 00:04:44.050
  • OF TRANSCENDENT VALUE,
  • 00:04:44.050 --> 00:04:46.050
  • EXCEPT FREEDOM.
  • 00:04:46.050 --> 00:04:48.220
  • WHAT'S WRONG WITH THAT?"
  • 00:04:48.220 --> 00:04:50.050
  • THE ANGER WITH WHICH
  • 00:04:50.050 --> 00:04:51.180
  • THEY SPEAK ABOUT GOD,
  • 00:04:51.180 --> 00:04:53.030
  • YOU WOULD NOT SPEAK AGAINST
  • 00:04:53.030 --> 00:04:54.210
  • THE TOOTH FAIRY!
  • 00:04:54.210 --> 00:04:56.060
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:04:56.210 --> 00:04:59.210
  • SOMETHING IN THE BACK
  • 00:04:59.210 --> 00:05:01.080
  • OF THEIR MINDS TELL THEM
  • 00:05:01.080 --> 00:05:03.000
  • HE'S REAL, AND WE'RE ANGRY.
  • 00:05:03.210 --> 00:05:06.210
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:05:10.240 --> 00:05:13.240
  • AND SO, AS I PULL IT TOGETHER,
  • 00:05:13.240 --> 00:05:15.250
  • I WANT TO SAY THIS.
  • 00:05:15.250 --> 00:05:17.130
  • IT BETTER BEWARE
  • 00:05:17.130 --> 00:05:18.240
  • OF THE HUMAN CONDITION.
  • 00:05:18.240 --> 00:05:20.020
  • HERE'S WHAT
  • 00:05:20.020 --> 00:05:20.120
  • CHRISTOPHER HITCHENS SAYS.
  • 00:05:20.120 --> 00:05:22.140
  • "HOW MUCH SELF-RESPECT
  • 00:05:22.140 --> 00:05:23.240
  • MUST BE SACRIFICED IN ORDER
  • 00:05:23.240 --> 00:05:25.220
  • THAT ONE MAY SQUIRM CONTINUALLY
  • 00:05:25.220 --> 00:05:28.100
  • IN AN AWARENESS
  • 00:05:28.100 --> 00:05:28.280
  • OF ONE'S OWN SIN?"
  • 00:05:28.280 --> 00:05:31.220
  • I DUNNO WHY THEY SAY IT
  • 00:05:31.220 --> 00:05:32.150
  • IN SUCH A COMPLICATED MANNER,
  • 00:05:32.150 --> 00:05:33.260
  • BUT HERE'S WHAT HE SAYS.
  • 00:05:33.260 --> 00:05:35.050
  • "HOW MUCH SELF-RESPECT
  • 00:05:35.050 --> 00:05:36.070
  • MUST BE SACRIFICED
  • 00:05:36.070 --> 00:05:37.190
  • IN ORDER THAT ONE MAY SQUIRM
  • 00:05:37.190 --> 00:05:39.180
  • CONTINUALLY IN AN AWARENESS
  • 00:05:39.180 --> 00:05:41.100
  • OF ONE'S OWN SIN?"
  • 00:05:41.100 --> 00:05:42.020
  • WHAT HE'S REALLY SAYING IS
  • 00:05:42.020 --> 00:05:43.000
  • WHY DO I HAVE TO SACRIFICE
  • 00:05:43.000 --> 00:05:44.020
  • ALL OF THIS SELF-RESPECT OF MINE
  • 00:05:44.020 --> 00:05:45.180
  • TO CONFESS MY SIN?
  • 00:05:45.180 --> 00:05:47.020
  • BERLINSKI SAYS,
  • 00:05:47.020 --> 00:05:47.290
  • "THE HONEST ANSWER
  • 00:05:47.290 --> 00:05:48.280
  • TO MR. HITCHENS
  • 00:05:48.280 --> 00:05:49.190
  • IS THAT FOR MOST OF US,
  • 00:05:49.190 --> 00:05:51.030
  • SELF-RESPECT IS POSSIBLE
  • 00:05:51.030 --> 00:05:52.160
  • ONLY IF THE SQUIRMING
  • 00:05:52.160 --> 00:05:53.290
  • IS CONSIDERABLE."
  • 00:05:53.290 --> 00:05:55.170
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:05:55.170 --> 00:05:58.130
  • SO, I TAKE YOU
  • 00:05:58.130 --> 00:05:59.120
  • TO THE PERSON OF JESUS,
  • 00:05:59.120 --> 00:06:01.150
  • AND I SHOW YOU WHAT IT IS
  • 00:06:01.150 --> 00:06:03.140
  • THAT HE HAD TO SAY ABOUT EVIL.
  • 00:06:03.140 --> 00:06:05.200
  • PLEASE FOLLOW ME.
  • 00:06:05.200 --> 00:06:07.040
  • JESUS DESCRIBED HIMSELF
  • 00:06:07.040 --> 00:06:09.130
  • IN THE FOLLOWING TITLES.
  • 00:06:09.130 --> 00:06:11.220
  • THE FIRST IS THE SON OF DAVID.
  • 00:06:11.220 --> 00:06:14.110
  • THIS IS AN INCREDIBLE TITLE,
  • 00:06:14.110 --> 00:06:16.140
  • AND I'LL JUST BREEZE THROUGH
  • 00:06:16.140 --> 00:06:17.220
  • THESE IDEAS.
  • 00:06:17.220 --> 00:06:19.220
  • ONE OF THE CHAPTERS
  • 00:06:19.220 --> 00:06:20.130
  • THAT TELLS US ABOUT THIS
  • 00:06:20.130 --> 00:06:21.220
  • IS WHEN A BLIND MAN,
  • 00:06:21.220 --> 00:06:23.210
  • AND OUR BIBLE IS REMARKABLE
  • 00:06:23.210 --> 00:06:24.280
  • IN WHAT IT SAYS
  • 00:06:24.280 --> 00:06:25.160
  • AND WHAT IT DOESN'T SAY.
  • 00:06:25.160 --> 00:06:27.130
  • HE TELLS US THERE WAS A MAN,
  • 00:06:27.130 --> 00:06:29.170
  • BLIND FROM BIRTH,
  • 00:06:29.170 --> 00:06:31.240
  • HIS NAME WAS BARTIMAEUS.
  • 00:06:31.240 --> 00:06:34.220
  • DO YOU REALIZE
  • 00:06:34.220 --> 00:06:35.110
  • WHEN YOU READ THAT,
  • 00:06:35.110 --> 00:06:37.130
  • HE HAS NO NAME?
  • 00:06:39.150 --> 00:06:42.150
  • HE WAS THE SON OF TIMAEUS.
  • 00:06:43.150 --> 00:06:46.150
  • HE HAS NO NAME --
  • 00:06:46.150 --> 00:06:47.180
  • BARTIMAEUS,
  • 00:06:47.180 --> 00:06:48.200
  • SON OF TIMAEUS.
  • 00:06:48.200 --> 00:06:49.110
  • THE ONLY THING THE BIBLE
  • 00:06:49.110 --> 00:06:50.040
  • TELLS ABOUT HIM
  • 00:06:50.040 --> 00:06:50.270
  • IS THESE TWO THINGS.
  • 00:06:50.270 --> 00:06:52.150
  • HE'S A SON OF TIMAEUS,
  • 00:06:52.150 --> 00:06:53.190
  • AND HE'S BLIND.
  • 00:06:53.250 --> 00:06:56.250
  • JESUS WALKS OVER TO HIM
  • 00:06:56.250 --> 00:06:58.050
  • AND SAYS,
  • 00:06:58.050 --> 00:06:58.200
  • "WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM ME?"
  • 00:06:58.200 --> 00:07:01.190
  • HE SAYS, "RABBI, I WANT TO SEE.
  • 00:07:02.020 --> 00:07:05.020
  • I WANT TO SEE."
  • 00:07:05.020 --> 00:07:07.070
  • JESUS LOOKS AT HIM AND PAYS HIM
  • 00:07:07.070 --> 00:07:08.220
  • THE COMPLIMENT
  • 00:07:08.220 --> 00:07:09.230
  • OF HIS INDIVIDUALITY,
  • 00:07:09.230 --> 00:07:10.210
  • WHICH HAD NEVER BEEN
  • 00:07:10.210 --> 00:07:11.140
  • PROBABLY PAID BEFORE.
  • 00:07:11.140 --> 00:07:13.180
  • HE SAYS, "GREAT IS YOUR FAITH.
  • 00:07:13.180 --> 00:07:15.220
  • YOUR FAITH HAS MADE YOU WHOLE,"
  • 00:07:15.220 --> 00:07:18.070
  • AND HE GIVES THE MAN
  • 00:07:18.070 --> 00:07:19.140
  • BACK HIS SIGHT.
  • 00:07:19.140 --> 00:07:21.020
  • HERE IS THE POINT OF THAT FAITH.
  • 00:07:21.210 --> 00:07:24.210
  • IT WAS BASED ON HIS KNOWLEDGE
  • 00:07:24.210 --> 00:07:27.180
  • THAT THIS MAN HAD
  • 00:07:27.180 --> 00:07:28.120
  • DONE THE MIRACLES.
  • 00:07:28.120 --> 00:07:30.120
  • THAT HE WAS THE SON OF DAVID
  • 00:07:30.120 --> 00:07:31.220
  • AND PROPHECY.
  • 00:07:31.220 --> 00:07:33.130
  • AND WHAT IS REMARKABLE FOR ME
  • 00:07:33.130 --> 00:07:35.010
  • IS WHEN JESUS AFFIRMS HIM
  • 00:07:35.010 --> 00:07:36.160
  • IN HIS INDIVIDUALITY.
  • 00:07:36.160 --> 00:07:38.230
  • TWO THINGS HAPPEN HERE.
  • 00:07:38.230 --> 00:07:40.240
  • THE GREAT GIFT THAT
  • 00:07:40.240 --> 00:07:41.270
  • JESUS GIVES TO YOU AND ME
  • 00:07:41.270 --> 00:07:44.140
  • IS THAT INDIVIDUAL RESPECT
  • 00:07:44.140 --> 00:07:47.050
  • AND INDIVIDUAL WORTH.
  • 00:07:47.070 --> 00:07:50.070
  • I AM THE SON OF MY FATHER.
  • 00:07:50.070 --> 00:07:51.290
  • WHAT A GREAT PRIVILEGE IT IS,
  • 00:07:51.290 --> 00:07:54.030
  • BUT I HAVE MY OWN IDENTITY,
  • 00:07:54.030 --> 00:07:55.220
  • MY OWN D.N.A.
  • 00:07:55.220 --> 00:07:57.250
  • GOD HAS MADE ME AN INDIVIDUAL
  • 00:07:57.250 --> 00:07:59.270
  • AND WHEN BY FAITH
  • 00:07:59.270 --> 00:08:00.290
  • AT THE AGE OF 17
  • 00:08:00.290 --> 00:08:02.170
  • ON A BED OF SUICIDE,
  • 00:08:02.170 --> 00:08:04.010
  • I COMMITTED MY LIFE TO CHRIST.
  • 00:08:04.010 --> 00:08:05.220
  • THE ANSWER THAT GOD GAVE TO ME
  • 00:08:05.220 --> 00:08:07.290
  • WAS NOT BECAUSE THE FAITH
  • 00:08:07.290 --> 00:08:08.280
  • OF MY FATHER, BUT IT WAS
  • 00:08:08.280 --> 00:08:10.080
  • BECAUSE OF THE FAITH
  • 00:08:10.080 --> 00:08:11.050
  • THAT I HAD PLACED IN HIM.
  • 00:08:11.050 --> 00:08:13.030
  • WHEN YOU PLACE THAT TRUST
  • 00:08:13.030 --> 00:08:14.070
  • IN HIM PERSONALLY,
  • 00:08:14.070 --> 00:08:15.290
  • HE WILL AFFIRM YOU AND HELP YOU
  • 00:08:15.290 --> 00:08:17.290
  • TO REDEFINE EVERYTHING
  • 00:08:17.290 --> 00:08:19.210
  • AND SEE IN A WAY
  • 00:08:19.210 --> 00:08:20.220
  • YOU'D NEVER SEEN BEFORE.
  • 00:08:20.220 --> 00:08:22.230
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:08:22.230 --> 00:08:25.110
  • SEE IN A WAY
  • 00:08:25.110 --> 00:08:27.020
  • YOU'D NEVER SEEN BEFORE.
  • 00:08:27.020 --> 00:08:28.250
  • BUT HERE'S THE POINT
  • 00:08:28.250 --> 00:08:29.180
  • I WANT TO MAKE.
  • 00:08:29.180 --> 00:08:30.280
  • DO YOU KNOW WHAT ATHEISTS
  • 00:08:30.280 --> 00:08:31.240
  • TELL US ABOUT
  • 00:08:31.240 --> 00:08:32.270
  • THE HEINOUSNESS OF THEISM?
  • 00:08:32.270 --> 00:08:35.190
  • LISTEN TO WHAT THIS STATEMENT
  • 00:08:35.190 --> 00:08:37.240
  • IS BY FRIEDRICH NIETZCHE,
  • 00:08:37.240 --> 00:08:40.070
  • "EQUALITY IS A LIE CONCOCTED
  • 00:08:40.200 --> 00:08:43.200
  • BY INFERIOR PEOPLE
  • 00:08:43.200 --> 00:08:45.110
  • WHO ARRANGE THEMSELVES IN HERDS
  • 00:08:45.110 --> 00:08:47.080
  • TO OVERPOWER THOSE
  • 00:08:47.080 --> 00:08:48.270
  • WHO ARE NATURALLY
  • 00:08:48.270 --> 00:08:49.210
  • SUPERIOR TO THEM.
  • 00:08:49.210 --> 00:08:50.280
  • THE MORALITY OF EQUAL RIGHTS
  • 00:08:50.280 --> 00:08:52.270
  • IS HERD MORALITY BECAUSE
  • 00:08:52.270 --> 00:08:55.150
  • IT OPPOSES THE CULTIVATION
  • 00:08:55.150 --> 00:08:57.020
  • OF SUPERIOR INDIVIDUALS.
  • 00:08:57.020 --> 00:08:58.250
  • IT LEADS TO THE CORRUPTION
  • 00:08:58.250 --> 00:09:00.160
  • OF THE HUMAN SPECIES."
  • 00:09:00.160 --> 00:09:02.000
  • MR. DAWKINS MAY TALK
  • 00:09:02.000 --> 00:09:03.200
  • OF ALL OF THE HORRIFIC THINGS
  • 00:09:03.200 --> 00:09:05.130
  • THAT RELIGION HAS DONE.
  • 00:09:05.130 --> 00:09:06.270
  • NIETZCHE'S WRITINGS WERE HELD
  • 00:09:06.270 --> 00:09:08.280
  • BY HITLER.
  • 00:09:08.280 --> 00:09:09.290
  • HITLER PERSONALLY PRESENTED IT
  • 00:09:09.290 --> 00:09:11.150
  • TO MUSSOLINI AND THEN TO STALIN,
  • 00:09:11.150 --> 00:09:14.080
  • AND THE IDEA OF EQUAL RIGHTS,
  • 00:09:14.080 --> 00:09:16.190
  • EQUAL HUMANITY WAS
  • 00:09:16.190 --> 00:09:18.060
  • AN ANATHEMA TO THE NAZI MIND.
  • 00:09:19.020 --> 00:09:22.020
  • THEY DIDN'T BELIEVE
  • 00:09:22.020 --> 00:09:22.280
  • HUMANITY WAS EQUAL.
  • 00:09:22.280 --> 00:09:24.060
  • SO, THOSE OF YOU WHO THINK
  • 00:09:24.060 --> 00:09:25.220
  • THE SCIENTISTS
  • 00:09:25.220 --> 00:09:26.240
  • AND THEIR SECULARISM
  • 00:09:26.240 --> 00:09:27.280
  • ARE LEADING YOU INTO A UTOPIA,
  • 00:09:27.280 --> 00:09:29.220
  • THIS IS THE UNDERPINNING
  • 00:09:29.220 --> 00:09:31.090
  • OF ONE OF THOSE PHILOSOPHERS.
  • 00:09:31.090 --> 00:09:32.250
  • HIS NAME IS NEITZCHE
  • 00:09:32.250 --> 00:09:34.080
  • WHO ULTIMATELY LEADS
  • 00:09:34.080 --> 00:09:35.170
  • IN HIS OWN THINKING
  • 00:09:35.170 --> 00:09:37.150
  • THROUGH ETHNIC SUPERIORITY
  • 00:09:37.150 --> 00:09:38.290
  • TO CULTURAL SUPERIORITY.
  • 00:09:38.290 --> 00:09:40.250
  • IT WAS DARWIN HIMSELF
  • 00:09:40.250 --> 00:09:42.250
  • AND OTHERS WHO MUSED
  • 00:09:42.250 --> 00:09:44.070
  • AND WONDERED
  • 00:09:44.070 --> 00:09:45.120
  • IF THEIR SCIENTIFIC THEORIES
  • 00:09:45.120 --> 00:09:47.200
  • WERE TAKEN INTO
  • 00:09:47.200 --> 00:09:48.140
  • METAPHYSICAL EXTRAPOLATIONS
  • 00:09:48.140 --> 00:09:50.060
  • WHETHER WE WOULD SEE
  • 00:09:50.060 --> 00:09:51.240
  • VIOLENCE UNPARALLELED.
  • 00:09:51.250 --> 00:09:54.250
  • THINK OF ALL THE KILLINGS
  • 00:09:54.250 --> 00:09:56.020

  • AS THE SON OF MAN,
  • 00:11:40.240 --> 00:11:42.090

  • BACKDROP OF THIS.
  • 00:11:59.040 --> 00:12:00.260
  • HE STARTED TO TELL THEM

  • THAT LITTLE CHILD.
  • 00:18:51.130 --> 00:18:53.010
  • THREE ENTITIES IN ONE BEING.
  • 00:18:53.010 --> 00:18:55.270
  • IN AN INCREDIBLE WAY
  • 00:18:55.270 --> 00:18:57.270
  • AND A MYSTERY,
  • 00:18:57.270 --> 00:18:59.100
  • WE REALLY DON'T.
  • 00:19:01.190 --> 00:19:02.240
  • WE JUST DESCRIBE IT.
  • 00:19:02.240 --> 00:19:05.040
  • EVEN ONE WOMAN CAN BE
  • 00:19:05.040 --> 00:19:06.150
  • THREE PERSONS DISTINCTIVE
  • 00:19:06.150 --> 00:19:08.020
  • AS IT WERE.
  • 00:19:08.020 --> 00:19:09.110
  • IS IT IMPOSSIBLE FOR GOD
  • 00:19:09.110 --> 00:19:10.110
  • TO BE THREE PERSONS
  • 00:19:10.110 --> 00:19:11.180
  • IN ONE ESSENCE
  • 00:19:11.180 --> 00:19:13.060
  • IN AN INFINITE SCALE
  • 00:19:13.060 --> 00:19:14.160
  • OF TRANSCENDING ALL OF HUMANITY?
  • 00:19:14.160 --> 00:19:16.260
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:19:21.070 --> 00:19:24.070
  • YOU KNOW, THERE'S A BIRD
  • 00:19:24.070 --> 00:19:25.110
  • THAT'S CALLED A MANX SHEARWATER,
  • 00:19:25.110 --> 00:19:26.190
  • AND AFTER THIS, MY THOUGHT
  • 00:19:26.190 --> 00:19:27.180
  • WILL BE BRIEF.
  • 00:19:27.180 --> 00:19:29.210
  • A MANX SHEARWATER IS A BIRD
  • 00:19:29.210 --> 00:19:30.270
  • THAT COMES ON LAND IN WALES
  • 00:19:30.270 --> 00:19:33.080
  • TO LAY ITS EGG AT THE BOTTOM
  • 00:19:33.080 --> 00:19:34.170
  • OF S RABBIT BURROW.
  • 00:19:34.170 --> 00:19:37.010
  • AND SO, SCIENTISTS WERE TRYING
  • 00:19:37.060 --> 00:19:40.060
  • TO SEE WHAT THEY COULD DO
  • 00:19:40.060 --> 00:19:41.190
  • CHANGE THIS ROUTINE.
  • 00:19:41.190 --> 00:19:44.060
  • SO, THEY TOOK ONE
  • 00:19:44.060 --> 00:19:44.230
  • OF THESE MANX SHEARWATERS
  • 00:19:44.230 --> 00:19:46.000
  • AND TOOK IT TO CAMBRIDGE,
  • 00:19:46.000 --> 00:19:47.020
  • 250 MILES AWAY.
  • 00:19:47.020 --> 00:19:49.110
  • SEVEN HOURS LATER,
  • 00:19:49.110 --> 00:19:50.200
  • THAT BIRD FLEW BACK
  • 00:19:50.200 --> 00:19:52.100
  • TO WALES TO LAY ITS EGG
  • 00:19:52.100 --> 00:19:55.000
  • IN THAT LITTLE RABBIT HOLE.
  • 00:19:55.000 --> 00:19:57.030
  • THEY WERE STILL NOT CONVINCED
  • 00:19:57.030 --> 00:19:58.010
  • THIS IS TRUE.
  • 00:19:58.010 --> 00:19:59.240
  • THEY TOOK ANOTHER ONE
  • 00:19:59.240 --> 00:20:00.290
  • AND PLACED IT AT BOSTON'S LOGAN
  • 00:20:00.290 --> 00:20:03.020
  • AIRPORT 3.000 MILES AWAY.
  • 00:20:03.240 --> 00:20:06.240
  • TWELVE AND A HALF DAYS LATER
  • 00:20:06.240 --> 00:20:08.190
  • FLYING 250 MILES A DAY,
  • 00:20:08.190 --> 00:20:11.130
  • THE MANX SHEARWATER CAME BACK
  • 00:20:11.130 --> 00:20:12.270
  • TO THAT LITTLE ISLAND
  • 00:20:12.270 --> 00:20:13.250
  • IN WALES TO LAY ITS EGG.
  • 00:20:13.250 --> 00:20:15.240
  • THEY COULD NOT STOP IT
  • 00:20:15.240 --> 00:20:16.150
  • FROM COMING BACK.
  • 00:20:16.150 --> 00:20:18.270
  • THERE'S A HOMING INSTINCT
  • 00:20:18.270 --> 00:20:19.270
  • IN THE BIRD.
  • 00:20:19.270 --> 00:20:21.090
  • THERE'S A HOMING INSTINCT
  • 00:20:21.090 --> 00:20:22.050
  • IN YOU AND ME.
  • 00:20:22.050 --> 00:20:23.170
  • HE HAS MADE US FOR HIMSELF
  • 00:20:23.170 --> 00:20:25.160
  • AND OUR HEARTS ARE RESTLESS
  • 00:20:25.160 --> 00:20:26.260
  • UNTIL THEY FIND
  • 00:20:26.260 --> 00:20:27.240
  • THEIR REST IN HIM.
  • 00:20:27.240 --> 00:20:29.230
  • AND SO WHEN HE SAYS
  • 00:20:29.230 --> 00:20:30.220
  • HE'S THE SON OF GOD,
  • 00:20:30.220 --> 00:20:32.010
  • HE WANTS YOU TO BECOME
  • 00:20:32.010 --> 00:20:33.030
  • A CHILD OF GOD AND FIND
  • 00:20:33.030 --> 00:20:34.240
  • THAT RELATIONSHIP.
  • 00:20:34.240 --> 00:20:36.100
  • AND LASTLY, HE IS THE SAVIOR
  • 00:20:36.100 --> 00:20:38.230
  • WHO OFFERS THE GREATEST HOPE
  • 00:20:38.230 --> 00:20:41.150
  • AND THE GREATEST POSSIBILITY
  • 00:20:41.150 --> 00:20:43.010
  • OF RESCUE.
  • 00:20:43.230 --> 00:20:46.230
  • I WANT TO DO TWO THINGS HERE.
  • 00:20:46.230 --> 00:20:48.040
  • TELL YOU A LITTLE STORY
  • 00:20:48.040 --> 00:20:49.040
  • AND SHOW YOU A PICTURE
  • 00:20:49.040 --> 00:20:50.190
  • YOU KNOW WHAT YOUR BIGGEST
  • 00:20:53.250 --> 00:20:54.280
  • PROBLEM IS AND MINE
  • 00:20:55.100 --> 00:20:58.100
  • AND DAWKINS AND DENNETT,
  • 00:20:58.100 --> 00:20:59.280
  • HITCHENS?
  • 00:20:59.280 --> 00:21:01.200
  • IT'S WHAT GOES ON INSIDE HERE.
  • 00:21:02.220 --> 00:21:05.220
  • MY PROBLEM IS NOT
  • 00:21:05.220 --> 00:21:07.010
  • [INDISCERNIBLE].
  • 00:21:07.010 --> 00:21:09.060
  • MY PROBLEM IS
  • 00:21:09.060 --> 00:21:09.230
  • WHAT I DON'T NEED
  • 00:21:12.280 --> 00:21:13.150
  • IS A BETTER EDUCATION
  • 00:21:13.150 --> 00:21:15.040
  • OR MORE MONEY OR MORE FRIENDS.
  • 00:21:16.210 --> 00:21:19.210
  • WHAT I NEED IS TO FIND
  • 00:21:19.210 --> 00:21:20.180
  • A WAY TO BE FORGIVEN FOR LIFE
  • 00:21:21.010 --> 00:21:24.010
  • THAT'S BLOWING IT AGAIN
  • 00:21:24.010 --> 00:21:25.010
  • AND AGAIN AND AGAIN.
  • 00:21:25.010 --> 00:21:27.270
  • WHAT I NEED IS FOR SOMEBODY
  • 00:21:27.270 --> 00:21:28.230
  • TO PICK ME UP AND MAKE WHOLE
  • 00:21:29.200 --> 00:21:32.200
  • AND HELP THE BATTLES
  • 00:21:32.200 --> 00:21:33.120
  • THAT RAGE WITHIN ME
  • 00:21:33.120 --> 00:21:34.180
  • AND RAGE WITHIN YOU
  • 00:21:34.180 --> 00:21:36.240
  • AND SO WHEN JESUS DESCRIBES
  • 00:21:36.240 --> 00:21:37.250
  • HIMSELF AS SOTER, SAVIOR,
  • 00:21:37.250 --> 00:21:40.150
  • HE'S CALLING YOU TO THE CROSS
  • 00:21:40.150 --> 00:21:42.280
  • TO TELL YOU THAT FORGIVENESS
  • 00:21:42.280 --> 00:21:43.290
  • IS REAL AND IN THAT FORGIVENESS
  • 00:21:43.290 --> 00:21:46.130
  • IS HOPE OF A LIFE
  • 00:21:46.130 --> 00:21:49.060
  • THAT LIVES MORE VICTORIOUSLY
  • 00:21:49.060 --> 00:21:50.290
  • AND LESS DEFEATEDLY.
  • 00:21:50.290 --> 00:21:53.070
  • I WAS WATCHING THE NEWS
  • 00:21:53.070 --> 00:21:55.200
  • OF HOW THEY EMPTIED OUT
  • 00:21:58.100 --> 00:21:59.060
  • THEIR MACHINE GUNS AND FILLED
  • 00:21:59.060 --> 00:22:01.040
  • SCORES OF PEOPLE THERE,
  • 00:22:01.040 --> 00:22:03.230
  • AND THERE WAS AN INDIAN-BORN
  • 00:22:03.230 --> 00:22:04.190
  • AND HE TOLD HIS STORY.
  • 00:22:08.110 --> 00:22:09.170
  • HE WAS IN THAT RESTAURANT
  • 00:22:09.170 --> 00:22:11.190
  • INVITED BY FRIENDS,
  • 00:22:11.190 --> 00:22:12.240
  • AND THEY WERE ENJOYING
  • 00:22:12.240 --> 00:22:13.110
  • A BEAUTIFUL DINNER
  • 00:22:13.110 --> 00:22:14.060
  • WHEN HE HEARD
  • 00:22:14.060 --> 00:22:14.200
  • THE BUB, BUB, BUB, BUB,
  • 00:22:14.200 --> 00:22:15.160
  • AND HE THOUGHT MAYBE IT WAS
  • 00:22:15.160 --> 00:22:16.180
  • JUST SOME KIND OF FIRE CRACK
  • 00:22:16.180 --> 00:22:19.080
  • WORKS GOING ON OUTSIDE
  • 00:22:19.080 --> 00:22:20.100
  • WHEN SUDDENLY THE SOUND
  • 00:22:20.100 --> 00:22:21.120
  • GOT CLOSER AND CLOSER,
  • 00:22:21.120 --> 00:22:22.210
  • AND THEY KNEW AS MEN AND WOMEN
  • 00:22:22.210 --> 00:22:23.270
  • WERE SCREAMING
  • 00:22:23.270 --> 00:22:24.260
  • THAT IT WAS GUNFIRE.
  • 00:22:24.260 --> 00:22:26.140
  • HE SAID I FELT TWO ARMS
  • 00:22:26.140 --> 00:22:27.230
  • JUST GRAB EVERYBODY
  • 00:22:27.230 --> 00:22:28.260
  • ON EACH SIDE,
  • 00:22:28.260 --> 00:22:29.220
  • AND WE WERE FORCED UNDER
  • 00:22:29.220 --> 00:22:31.030
  • THE TABLE AND THE BULLETS
  • 00:22:31.030 --> 00:22:32.020
  • WERE FLYING, BOMBS,
  • 00:22:32.020 --> 00:22:33.100
  • AND THE GRENADES AND ALL.
  • 00:22:33.100 --> 00:22:35.100
  • PEOPLE SCREAMING LOOKING AROUND.
  • 00:22:35.100 --> 00:22:37.160
  • LIMBS SCATTERED
  • 00:22:37.160 --> 00:22:38.070
  • ALL OVER THE PLACE,
  • 00:22:38.070 --> 00:22:39.280
  • AND I HEARD THE FOOTSTEPS
  • 00:22:39.280 --> 00:22:40.270
  • OF ONE OF THEM COME WITHIN
  • 00:22:40.270 --> 00:22:42.030
  • ABOUT THREE FEET OF ME
  • 00:22:42.030 --> 00:22:43.260
  • AND AIMING THE GUN
  • 00:22:43.260 --> 00:22:45.200
  • FIRING AT RANDOM.
  • 00:22:45.230 --> 00:22:48.230
  • THE INTERVIEWER SAID TO HIM
  • 00:22:48.230 --> 00:22:51.230
  • HOW COME YOU'RE STILL HERE?
  • 00:22:52.220 --> 00:22:55.220
  • HE SAID I DON'T KNOW
  • 00:22:55.220 --> 00:22:56.120
  • HOW TO EXPLAIN IT.
  • 00:22:56.120 --> 00:22:57.240
  • ALL OF MY FRIENDS
  • 00:22:57.240 --> 00:22:59.000
  • WHO WERE PULLED WITH ME,
  • 00:22:59.000 --> 00:22:59.280
  • INCLUDING MY HOST, WERE DEAD.
  • 00:23:01.010 --> 00:23:04.010
  • HE SAID
  • 00:23:04.010 --> 00:23:04.140
  • I'M THE ONLY ONE SURVIVED.
  • 00:23:04.140 --> 00:23:07.070
  • AND SHE SAID HOW COME?
  • 00:23:07.070 --> 00:23:08.030
  • HE SAID I DON'T KNOW.
  • 00:23:08.030 --> 00:23:10.120
  • ALL I KNOW IS WHEN I GOT UP
  • 00:23:10.120 --> 00:23:13.070
  • THE SILENCE WAS THERE.
  • 00:23:13.070 --> 00:23:15.030
  • I WAS SO COVERED WITH BLOOD,
  • 00:23:15.030 --> 00:23:17.010
  • WITH SOMEONE ELSE'S BLOOD,
  • 00:23:17.010 --> 00:23:19.030
  • THAT THEY MUST HAVE TAKEN ME
  • 00:23:19.030 --> 00:23:20.050
  • FOR DEAD AND SPARED ME
  • 00:23:20.050 --> 00:23:20.260
  • BECAUSE I WAS COVERED
  • 00:23:20.260 --> 00:23:22.000
  • WITH ANOTHER'S BLOOD.
  • 00:23:28.050 --> 00:23:31.050
  • THAT'S THE GOSPEL.
  • 00:23:31.050 --> 00:23:33.250
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:23:41.090 --> 00:23:44.090
  • COVERED BY ANOTHER'S BLOOD.
  • 00:23:44.180 --> 00:23:47.180
  • YOU HAVE THREE WAYS
  • 00:23:47.180 --> 00:23:48.100
  • OF LOOKING AT IT.
  • 00:23:48.100 --> 00:23:49.230
  • THINK YOU HAVE YOU HAVE
  • 00:23:49.230 --> 00:23:50.120
  • TOTAL OBJECTIVITY?
  • 00:23:50.120 --> 00:23:51.100
  • NO.
  • 00:23:51.100 --> 00:23:52.190
  • TOTALLY DETERMINED?
  • 00:23:52.190 --> 00:23:53.140
  • NO.
  • 00:23:53.140 --> 00:23:54.140
  • SEMI-TRANSCENDENT?
  • 00:23:54.140 --> 00:23:55.220
  • YES.
  • 00:23:55.220 --> 00:23:56.270
  • I WANT YOU TO TAKE A LOOK
  • 00:23:56.270 --> 00:23:58.000
  • AT THIS AND WITH THAT
  • 00:23:58.000 --> 00:24:00.070
  • WE WILL CLOSE.
  • 00:24:00.070 --> 00:24:01.120
  • I'M GOING TO SHOW YOU
  • 00:24:01.120 --> 00:24:02.010
  • TWO PICTURES ON THE SCREEN.
  • 00:24:02.010 --> 00:24:04.070
  • ON THE LEFT, YOU'RE LOOKING
  • 00:24:04.070 --> 00:24:05.080
  • AT THE ROSE WINDOW
  • 00:24:05.080 --> 00:24:06.070
  • AT THE YORK MINSTER CATHEDRAL.
  • 00:24:06.070 --> 00:24:09.000
  • BEAUTIFUL
  • 00:24:09.000 --> 00:24:10.200
  • GEOMETRICALLY DESIGNED.
  • 00:24:10.200 --> 00:24:12.030
  • EVERY PIECE AMONG
  • 00:24:12.030 --> 00:24:13.010
  • THE THOUSANDS OF PIECES
  • 00:24:13.010 --> 00:24:14.090
  • PERFECTLY PLACED.
  • 00:24:14.090 --> 00:24:16.230
  • YOU THINK IT'S SPECTACULAR?
  • 00:24:16.230 --> 00:24:18.270
  • YES, IT IS.
  • 00:24:18.270 --> 00:24:20.160
  • ON THE RIGHT, YOU'RE LOOKING
  • 00:24:20.160 --> 00:24:23.040
  • AT A SECTION ALONG
  • 00:24:23.040 --> 00:24:24.120
  • THE AXIS OF THE HUMAN D.N.A.
  • 00:24:24.120 --> 00:24:26.020
  • DOUBLE HELIX.
  • 00:24:32.280 --> 00:24:35.280
  • IT WAS GIVEN TO ME
  • 00:24:35.280 --> 00:24:36.190
  • BY FRANCIS COLLINS,
  • 00:24:36.190 --> 00:24:37.260
  • THE DIRECTOR OF
  • 00:24:37.260 --> 00:24:38.080
  • THE HUMAN GENOME PROJECT.
  • 00:24:38.080 --> 00:24:39.090
  • WE SPOKE TOGETHER
  • 00:24:39.090 --> 00:24:40.060
  • AT JOHNS HOPKINS, AND I USE IT
  • 00:24:41.020 --> 00:24:44.020
  • WITH PERMISSION FROM HIM.
  • 00:24:44.060 --> 00:24:47.060
  • AND THIS WAS SHOWN
  • 00:24:47.060 --> 00:24:47.240
  • AT JOHNS HOPKINS.
  • 00:24:47.240 --> 00:24:48.200
  • THE LEFT ONE WAS SHOWN FIRST.
  • 00:24:48.200 --> 00:24:51.010
  • RIGHT ONE WAS COVERED.
  • 00:24:51.010 --> 00:24:53.150
  • AND THE RIGHT ONE WAS SHOWN
  • 00:24:53.150 --> 00:24:54.160
  • AND EXPLAINED WHAT IT WAS.
  • 00:24:54.160 --> 00:24:55.220
  • AN AUDIBLE SOUND WENT THROUGH
  • 00:24:55.220 --> 00:24:57.080
  • THE AUDIENCE PRIMARILY
  • 00:24:57.080 --> 00:24:58.270
  • OF SKEPTICS, WOW.
  • 00:25:00.220 --> 00:25:03.220
  • DO YOU KNOW YOU'RE LOOKING
  • 00:25:03.220 --> 00:25:05.200
  • AT THAT BECAUSE OF WHICH
  • 00:25:05.200 --> 00:25:07.030
  • YOU CAN LOOK AT IT?
