Final Presentation on Sam Harris

I'm not a very good public speaker, so I'll just be showing a short video of Sam Harris speaking on the incompatibility of free will and conscious experience.

Here is the link to the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GXTEmu-jUqA

  1. Interesting video, Shelby. I'm still holding out for free will, but you and Sam have me thinking.

    May I suggest? - None of us is a good public speaker until we get some practice speaking, in public. Next time you get an opportunity, write down some notes, stand up in front of some fellow human, and speak with them. Or just speak about a video you've shown. It gets better, and easier, each time you do it.

    But don't hang a label like "bad speaker" on yourself.
