I love Michael Shermer and skeptics of all varieties.  But praying to Charles 
Darwin does not seem "practical" to me.  The miracle of evolution will happen 
randomly whether you pray or not.  (...whether you "prey" or not...?)

You mean because we don't want to look like those fat slobs we see on YouTube?

Seriously, YouTube is fun.  But does it add more hours of entertainment than 
it wastes with unentertaining videos?  Maybe we should keep score on stuff like 
this to make sure we come out ahead.
