  • Kurzgesagt – In a Nutshell

    Do you want to talk with us about this video? We’ll do a sort of Q&A or AMA or whatever in our subreddit: Addiction and the Refugee videos will be online for 12 more hours before we delete them. This should be enough time for enough people to download them. Feel free to upload them elsewhere, but NOT on Youtube and NOT on Facebook. We’ll take them down on those two platforms because we don’t want people to monetize them or use them as viral content. Everywhere else is ok though!

    I love this channel but in my opinion it can't be trustd. In this day and age its easy to mislead people with cartoons that put things so simply and in a calm reassuring manner. Your "The egg" video is an interesting video and neat story but theres absolutely nothing biblical about it. I'm almost 40, at this age, I've come to realize the only truth on this planet is contained soley in the scriptures of the bible. Your video has great potential to make someone think they wont be held accountable for their actions in life, thus removing responsibility from one. I assure you if I, you, or all of us are Hitler, we should dress very light because Hell will be our eternal destination after we take our last breath. We are all well aware that in life, you will answer for your actions and reactions in everything you do, those are the consequences. What makes anyone think that in the afterlife you wont?

    I was hoping this was going to be an April fool's video where you tell us why we shouldn't trust you.

    Can you trust Kurzgesagt? No. For one simple reason: they abuse the anti-spam option that youtube gives them to prevent people from sharing sourced information in the comment section.Youtube comes with anti-spam tools that allow content creators to view comments containing links and take action if these are considered nefarious by the moderation. There's 3 options: approve, repport, or hide. And it is the latter that is being used by Kurzgesagt: hide. No one can see your comment but you, so you think everything is normal until you check in incognito mode to see if your message is up, only to realize that it's simply not there.Now this starts to become dangerous when Kurzgesagt makes videos on topics like GMO all the while throwing an astounding ammount of biaised false facts easily debunked by peer-reviwed science, since they prevent you from informing their viewers about the reality of the matter.This, is why you cannot trust Kurzgesagt.

    If those two videos don't make you proud, put something at the start of them saying pointing out the flaws in it.Additionally you can make follow up videos
