Why are philosophy videos on Youtube so scarce?? I have come across only a very few! Does anyone have any links to some good Youtube channels with philosophical material?

I have, though I generally only see science and psychology. Got any recommended videos?

Or read a book. Preferably one by somebody other than David Icke or Michael Tsarion, aka, "The Kirk Cameron and Kent Hovind of philosophy."

I don't have any videos off the top of my head that I can think of. Most (even philosophy-ish) that I've seen are from TED. I've also come across some good God debates on YouTube. I'm sure if you type a topic into the search bar, a bunch of videos will show up (but who knows the quality :/ ). You can probably even look up some lectures. Try typing some well-known names in maybe?

That's debatable. ^_^
I'm not back. This idiot just upset me which made me stop lurking.

I already own several:

Basic Writings of Martin Heidegger
(which includes Being and Time, What Is Metaphysics?, Letter On Humanism, and The End of Philosophy)

The Book, by British philosopher Alan Watts

The Pocket Krishnamurti

Preferably one by somebody other than David Icke or Michael Tsarion, aka, "The Kirk Cameron and Kent Hovind of philosophy."

Admittedly, David Icke is not that philosophically inclined, however, Michael Tsarion is certainly more philosophically inclined than you and would probably own you in a debate. That goes for anyone else here, or perhaps even any contemporaries in the West.

Yes, Theism vs. Atheism is ubiquitous on Youtube, but that's not what I'm looking for.

Yeah, I've done that. Still not very much.

Michael Tsarion belongs in a mental institution. Plus, most philosophers suck at debating, in case you've never seen Bill Craig tear many a respected academic to shreds.

And let me add as well:

The Secret Teachings of All Ages, by Manly P. Hall (it actually gives a very detailed history of philosophy and describes the philosophy of all the major philosophers)

The Way of Zen, by Alan Watts (despite being a book on a religion, it is primarily filled with content of philosophical value, especially given that it's written by a philosopher.)

See, what you're doing here is discrediting his philosophical prowess based on what you know about his alien theories. What's the name of that fallacy again? Yeah, I think you know.

What philosophical works of his have you read, watched, or listened to, to make such a scathing criticism of? I'm guessing none.

Plus, most philosophers suck at debating, in case you've never seen Bill Craig tear many a respected academic to shreds.

I have seen him debate before as well as participate in discussions. He's got great rhetorical abilities, that is for sure.
