We can use engaging videos to create customized lessons, adapting
and editing any lesson featured on TED-Ed, or or creating lessons
from scratch around any TED or YouTube video. You can take the

AU’s 2014-15 Common Book. We will also introduce you
to William Kwamba’s How We Built A Wind Mill.
Questions of good and evil, right and wrong are commonly thought unanswerable by science. But Sam Harris argues that science can — and should — be an authority on moral issues, shaping human values and setting out what constitutes a good life.
At age 14, in poverty and famine, a Malawian boy built a windmill to power his family’s home. Now at 22, William Kamkwamba, who speaks at TED, here, for the second time, shares in his own words the moving tale of invention that changed his life.
Sam Harris is offering $20,000 to anyone who can refute, disprove the central thesis of his book The Moral Landscape.
Harris’ words [in his 2004 book The End of Faith] are indicative of a profoundly anti-intellectual conceit that holds an alarming amount of influence within contemporary scientifically motivated atheism.
