Oh, the humanism

Recently, the British Humanist Association posted a series of short animated videos narrated by the great Stephen Fry. For those unfamiliar, Stephen Fry is (to quote the late Douglas Adams):

This man is the bee's knees, he is the wasp's nipples. He is, I would go so far as to say, the entire set of erogenous zones of every major flying insect of the Western world. [1]

And that's not just because he's the only TV personality I know of that can do a Faro shuffle. He is one of the great articulators of the generation. He always has just the right words to say what he wants to say, which often requires him to make up his own words. So I was delighted to watch this series of videos. They are a brilliant elucidation of what it means to be a humanist.

Nothing to do with magic, but enjoy anyway. It will be the best twelve minutes of your week: [youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tvz0mmF6NW4?rel=0]
