Here Be Dragons

Here Be Dragons, is a documentary about critical thinking. Explaining how the vast majority of the population will accept dragons, or their logical equivalents, than to actually try to learn and understand the principle of how things actually work, this documentary is an excellent introduction to critical thinking.

Here Be Dragons is written and presented by Brian Dunning, host and producer of the Skeptoid podcast, author of Skeptoid: Critical Analysis of Pop Phenomena, and Executive Producer of The Skeptologists.

Human Body: Pushing the Limits

I posted the fourth episode of this show some time ago, but finally here’s the complete series with all 4 episodes. It has interesting information coupled with great presentation and CGI. Quite surprising for a Discovery Channel production 🙂

Ice Age Meltdown

18,000 years ago there was a sudden change in climate which ends a global freeze which had lasted for several thousands of years. Melting ice caps drive up sea levels to create coastlines we recognize today and great glaciers thaw dramatically to re-sculpture the landscape.

This is a Nat Geo Wild documentary, exploring the Earth’s global warming and cooling cycles. It gives some valuable information on the conditions which dictate the changing temperatures on Earth – very educational.

Richard Dawkins: The Greatest Show on Earth
