I like all the different examples he brings in to illustrate a point. But PLEASE. Quit talking about how we evolved from monkeys or that plants can think enough to change themselves... The reason human genomes and ape genomes are said to be so similar is actually because when the researchers on this were trying to figure it out, some of their findings didn't make sense. So instead of putting the work into figuring it out, they substituted HUMAN DNA for the ape's DNA. The top scientists in this field know this, but don't think that anyone else would like to know. :(
