Even though the video is just over twelve minutes in its entirety, it's really only about eight minutes, the last four being music with a simple on-screen message.
I predict that not many will watch it because they fear that it will be full of atheist vitriol (because we atheists are such hateful people, after all) or that it will challenge their beliefs (again, hardly ever welcome). It's a thoughtful message, though, and what I take from it most of all is that we depend on each other in so many ways. We need each other, and should love each other.
Unless you watch it with preconceived notions and can't listen to it without forming your arguments against what he says (in other words, not really listening at all), I think most people will be able to appreciate the message.
Let's discuss it.Answer Question

Kristi you're right he never says religion is wrong, but he did say "believing in a God harms everyone".
Religion can be divisive and so can atheism. Ask anyone in Eastern Europe.
I do believe prayer can help humanity, but prayer doesn't stop us from tackling the problem using more tangle means. So what are the what are some solutions? Gun control, good luck. Mental health care, definitely. Programs to monitor the severely mentally ill, yes, but how do you do this without stripping them of specific civil rights?
These aren't religious questions. I don't think religion or God is preventing people from finding solutions. The problem is people are as divided politically as they are spiritually.
