I came across this video recently through a friend Toby (Cheers mate). It's an animated clip of Tim Minchin reciting his poem "Storm". Surprisingly, I later found that this same poem has been published in The Australian Book of Atheism. It's a jovial poem about an encounter between Tim and one of those new age hippy, "alternative" everything embracing people who hold distrust for science and prefer to believe in the supernatural aspects of society from alternative medicine, astrology, religion etc. Anyway, have a watch and prepare for the ensuing amusement.
Here's a live performance of the poem by Tim.
Growing up you believe the world is meant to be the way it is. The older I get the more I realise that this is not the case. The world is full of injustices and atrocities that governments and the voice of faith expect us to accept, though with each passing year they grow fewer and fewer, at least one would hope. I have created this blog as a space for me to rant about all things science, politics, philosophy and religion, before it’s too late and the vessel of new atheism propelled by a growing surge in secularism solves all of the world’s problems for good.
