Jacob Bronowski and "The Tragedy of Mankind"

I saw this short film the other day on the awesomer. I think it is a compilations of clips and quotes from Bronowski's tv work, especially "The Ascent of Man".

It is a truly moving appeal to rationality over dogma and religion. I don't know much about Bronowski to judge his religious beliefs, or lack thereof, and although he does quote Oliver Cromwell at one point and refers to Christ, my impression is that it is more an appeal to religious people to consider rationality and science.

It seems very apropos this week, even more than usual.
