Open-Mindedness and Other Videos

A nice YouTube video on open-mindedness. There are a few (minor) missteps (e.g., the 'unexplained therefore explained' objection requires an oddly uncharitable interpretation of the argument to which it is an objection), but it's actually pretty decent.

The user, QualiaSoup, has a number of other good videos up -- again, here and there there are a few things I would consider missteps, but many of them are worth watching. I recommend Evolution and The problem with anecdotes.

There are bound to be other good YouTube videos along these lines. Have any of you come across any?
