Adam Savage @ The Reason Rally

In what appears to be a regular occurrence as of late, I’m sharing another instance of someone expressing ideas in a far more coherent manner than I tend to.  While there is joy in articulating things in your own way and I do delight in it…I deeply appreciate those who can, as the saying goes, “say it best”.

So, in the spirit of that I’d like to share a speech made by Adam Savage of MythBusters fame at the Reason Rally which took place a few days ago (March 24, 2012).

Brilliant, entertaining and a little moving.

A part of me delights in the pseudo-irony of such civil and eloquent words being spoken by a man who’s last name is Savage.

I love the way he ended it as well – it was interesting to listen to the audience go dead quiet as he described a loving, forgiving entity who was keeping score.  You can almost feel the doubt as he riddles off a list of attributes that, traditionally, have been used to describe “god” and then the elation that comes when he arrives at a different and, appropriately, reasonable conclusion.

Well said, good sir.

UPDATE:  For those who’d like a transcript of Adam’s speech, he’s provided one on tested.com
