I do not claim that this video demonstrates there is no God. It is not an argument against God in itself, so there is no argument from popularity or authority. I claim that the more scientifically and philosophically literate a person, the less likely they are to believe in a deity. If you think the concept of a God has nothing to do with the universe, logic, metaphysics, epistemology, human beings, etc., then this video is not for you. If you think it does have something to do with such subjects, then you might want to consider why the best experts on those subjects usually fail to see reason to believe in a deity.
