  1. Issac Asimov: Brilliant Science Fiction writer, promoter of science and the
    only non Texan who can get away with a string tie.

  2. How old is this. Great material if dated but the same debates are still
    being had today although progress is being made., 

  3. This guy is so cool. I had never heard of him, but I just read this book
    called 3 Futures by Peter T. McQueeny, and he lists Asimov as a huge
    influence on his Amazon profile. I really want to read the Foundation
    books now!

  4. Si alguien puede traducir éstos videos al castellano, por favor hágalo.
    Muchos hispanohablantes (incluyéndome) van a estar agradecidos. 

  5. Here we are 28 years later and the same arguments are being repeated. We
    haven’t learned anything. No wonder robots decided humans needed guidance.

  6. Came across this, what a blast (like Asimov’s jacket).
    Interesting journey into the way-back machine (plus ’80’s hair)
    …plus ça change…

  7. I had a much longer comment composed and it was in danger of becoming a
    full blown essay—something that I’m too lazy to write at the moment—so I’ll
    just say this: I consider myself to be a humanist which encompasses atheism
    and skepticism, but it also has ethical and moral components. I’ll let
    Isaac Asimov explain what Humanism is, as he can do it much better than I

  8. Another good description of Humanism is contained within the Declaration of
    Independence: WE hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are
    created equal, that they are endowed by THEIR Creator with certain
    unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of

  9. Usual creationist response – ‘Well, atheism is a religion..’ No it’s not.
    It’s about the pursuit of knowing what is true, and what is false.

  10. Dr. Wolverine err Dr. Asimov! We need more of him to put the stake in the
    Religious Right and their death throes.

  11. Hey, Isaac, your suit was out of fashion long before this film was made.
    That, however, is to your credit you crazy guy. I hereby toast you, your
    memory and your teachings.

  12. This was made the year I was born. It is absolutely crazy to see how the
    situation has not changed one bit in all these years.

  13. that’s because you’re not in the loop man! where have you been? under a
    rock? GET IN THE CLUB! internet cynicism is ok nowadays dood. dood take a
    toke dood and look around! WAKE UP! you’re missing out on the dUbStep’N
    dood. End the Fed -Ron Paul 2016, FREE PALISTINE etc…AHHH!!!!

  14. You are awfully stupid if you think nothing has changed. Open your eyes and
    stop being so negative and bitter about the world. It’s not that bad, and
    it’s getting better all the time.

  15. ” I think computer viruses should count as life. I think it says something

    purely destructive. We’ve created life in our own image.” – Stephen

  16. Изумительная программа.
    И ведь каждое слово актуально до сих пор. Все эти споры о том, нужно ли в
    школах преподавать религию, половое воспитание, споры об оскорблении чувств
    верующих — вот вам, пожалуйста. Ничегошеньки не поменялось.

  17. Here’s a classic video explaining what humanism is by one of its most
    significant and influential members.
