    I have watched many of the videos. They give one insight into areas that we as individuals many feel uncomfortable. I think one of the videos that I personally found informative was the revelation of how much pressure women place upon men to always be "strong". To be honest, I have joined several "intellectual" groups who use that word as a mask for atheism. I am no atheist nor even agnostic. Though I find just as much deceit within religion as these "intellectual" groups. What I love about TED talks, is that it is about the human experience and how we can grow through meaningful conversation.

    So my thoughts were along something of Intelligence squared. Have you watched any of the videos? It's quite interesting...

    I got an idea to turning this into a reality. Look for the proposed solution in a few days on the message board.

    Look forward to something like this! Debates are essential to a healthy democracy. Let's insure this is a substantive debate and not the poor farces promoted as debates we see on cable "news."
