It’s a great book and although this video is only a small slice (and not the main argument), it’s very interesting and worth reading. He’s the source of a couple specific phrasings like “countries can’t manufacture 18 year olds” which I think help explain the issue well.

Impenetrable Box of Belief
 
02:44
Most problems are caused by people not wanting the truth, but to defend the beliefs which they acquired from their parents. Education and debate are designed to compensate for the fact that children have no choice but to accept their parents words as the only truth, but they fail because the job is near impossible. I think this impenetrable box is one of the biggest problems society faces right now, more than any debate or controversy because almost every disagreement exists because the one tool we have to fight ignorance (science/rationality) doesn’t actually change core beliefs. ### Sources & Research Used ### http://www.pewforum.org/2009/04/27/faith-in-flux/ http://www.newyorker.com/science/maria-konnikova/i-dont-want-to-be-right (I highly recommend this article) http://journals.lww.com/lww-medicalcare/Abstract/2013/02000/The_Hazards_of_Correcting_Myths_About_Health_Care.2.aspx https://www.quora.com/What-are-the-biggest-reasons-why-people-fail-to-convince-others-of-their-argument http://skepdic.com/backfireeffect.html https://youarenotsosmart.com/2011/06/10/the-backfire-effect/ https://youarenotsosmart.com/2016/04/08/yanss-073-how-to-get-the-most-out-of-realizing-you-are-wrong-by-using-bayes-theorem-to-update-your-beliefs/ ### Credits ### Music: On the Ground Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com) Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 License http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/ "Whoosh" sound effect by toyoto (*altered slightly) http://freesound.org/people/toyoto

How Do HEX Color Codes Work? (in 60 seconds)
 
01:00
You may have seen color codes like #5BC0EB and #FFFFFF around. These numbers convey a color to a computer but can be read by humans too. ### Notes ### I debated about putting this video out. It's a bit dry and I don't know how good it really is but it's difficult to tell how a video will be received. Also, I wanted to get something out since it may be little while until the next one is released because of traveling. ### Credits ### Thanks to BenSound for the royalty free music "Clear Day": http://www.bensound.com

The Reddit Filter
 
02:56
A look into a problem of democracy through Reddit’s voting system where one idea inevitably rules and diversity is systematically challenged. To be clear, I love Reddit and use it daily. However, I also think it has some serious flaws and it’s healthy to know about them. ### Notes ### This video is (so far) the most time-consuming video I’ve made on PolyMatter. Took ~12 hours to make but I’m pretty happy with it.

Theory & Evidence

A quick introduction to evidence, theory and truth. It’s pretty simple, but laid out such that it could be shown to a child. ### Notes ### This video’s a little out of the ordinary for me, but I liked the concept and wanted to try making a video without a voiceover. It was a nice break from spending 40+ hours on a video. ### Credits ### Special thanks to this post for inspiring the whole video: https://www.reddit.com/r/skeptic/comments/tv098/i_made_a_sort_of_comic_to_explain_evidencetheory/ and to u/fbncci for pointing it out to me!

How to Make a Flag (New)
 
00:35
What guidelines do flag designers (vexillologists) use? Here are 5 tips put into a short video form from the North american Vexillological association. http://www.ausflag.com.au/assets/images/Good-Flag-Bad-Flag.pdf ### Notes ### 6 months ago I uploaded a short video on flag design. Since then, my channel has grown a lot. I wanted to show my improvement by remaking that old video. It's really short but I think it's a neat little introduction to the principles of flag design. ### Credits ### Thanks to NAVA for the tips on which this video was designed on. Their really great introduction to flag design is here: http://www.ausflag.com.au/assets/images/Good-Flag-Bad-Flag.pdf Thanks to BenSound (http://www.bensound.com) for the "Jazzy Frenchy" song. Lots of royalty free music there. Thanks to many users from FreeSound for sound effects.
