Off That (Rationalist Anthem)

Here’s the latest provocative hip-hop video from self-described rap troubadour Baba Brinkman in which he blasts pseudo-science and irrationality. A Chaucer scholar who started out rapping the Canterbury Tales, lately he’s been branching out into the world of science and religion. In 2008, the Vancouver artist developed the utterly brilliant Rap Guide to Evolution. I met him last year while he and I were on a tour in the U.K. in celebration of the 200th Birthday of Charles Darwin.

Warning: Brinkman takes a pretty strong stance in the video, and it’s NSFW. Hint: His hero is Richard Dawkins.
