TEDxLCC - Gregory Sandstrom - The Courage of Extending Humanity

Dr. Gregory Sandstrom is a Canadian professor working at the Lithuanian University of Educational Sciences and the European Humanities University in Vilnius, Lithuania. He is a graduate of the Sociological Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences, St. Petersburg. His TEDx presentation speaks to the debate over innovation of ideas specifically regarding evolution, creation and intelligent design. He asks whether or not science can have the courage to work together with philosophy and religion or worldview to discover where humanity is headed and presents the idea of human extension as a way to promote human dignity, cooperation, altruism and flourishing instead of Darwinian dehumanisation, conflict and struggle.In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
