What a great guy John is, witty and remarkably compelling. Well worth a watch.
Good to see someone asking some difficult and fundamental questions about things we tend to assume to be true these days (the big bang). Right or wrong it's good to hear the questions asked in such a clever and well thought out manner. I guess that is what separates science from religion, dissent is welcomed an encouraged in order to further everyone's understanding.
I enjoyed it.
