No, I did, and it's exactly that, just a load of folk psychology being spewed in a desperate attempt to undermine religion.

Interesting. I would not call it a complete takedown as it needs more studies to back it. However, the analysis is really well done and logical.

The person doing the video sounds like thunderf00t. Therefore I'm not going to watch it because it's almost certainly pseudo-intellectual trash.

So, let's recap:
1. You prejudged an informational video because the speaker had a British accent.
2. You lied about watching.
3. Then, you use the association fallacy by stating that since thunderf00t is pseudo-intellectual (assumed), then because he and TheraminTrees share a british accent or a certain manner of speaking, TheraminTrees is pseudo-intellectual as well. Textbook association fallacy.

I wish there was a +1 button on DDO. That was a Hitchslap that the man himself would be proud of.
