What TED Conversations would you like to have but don't take the time to create?

I suspect that we all have a million Conversations that we'd like to have, and even though creating a conversation isn't hard i also suspect that many don't bother since.. Well, it's a couple of clicks away and I know from experience that people are less likely to do something for every additional click that it takes, there's also the pressure of writing an explanation that for some is a big task.

So, simply put: What would you like to talk about on TED?

      Dec 13 2013: Chris, you clearly lack knowledge about evolution and I suggest you read up on the topic before making false claims.
      We share 98 % of our genes with chimpanzees which should be plenty of proof that we are very much related. Or in other words, chimpanzees and humans have common ancestors and if going back far enough in time, all living organisms share a common ancestor. For this very reason we even share genes with plants and fruit flies.
      That said, it doesn't mean that we descend from chimpanzees but that at some point different lineages developed (from the same common ancestor), one leading to humans and others leading to other primates.

          Dec 18 2013: Ah, ok, so, according to you where did the first human being spring into existence ? Humans developed from more primitive ancestors but at some point they were no humans.
          Why don't you look up "time line of human evolution" or "pre human" ? That gives you plenty of links explaining where we evolved from.
          Root races ? Sorry, I'm not into the esoteric.

          Dec 18 2013: Chris, Please Read Darwins original work. It managed to convince the majority of the world of it's validity without even coming close to genetics and the modern sciences that we have today. It's a really good book, and if you're still not convinced you'll at least have a better understanding of how to refute evolution to those that accept it.

          It's just $6.60 on amazon http://www.amazon.com/The-Origin-Species-Charles-Darwin/dp/0553214632

          Dec 18 2013: Chris, I follow the evidence. Your claims are not supported by any evidence, hence they are meaningless to me.
          There are many people believing strange things. You are not the only one.
          But for me science is too exciting to waste time with esoteric humbug.

          Dec 19 2013: Again, cite scientific references if you want to make a point.
          Atlantis discovered ? You should stop reading Erick van Daniken ;-)

          " I came here only to post the conversation TED rejected,"
          Did it ever occur to you that there might be a reason for that ?

      Dec 13 2013: Chris,

      You are being misinformed by your community. There are many misconceptions about "Flat Earth" your Wiki showed some of them, let me show you some more http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flat_Earth

      Concerning Darwinism I'm much too fatigued at the moment to get into it properly, let me just inform you of chromosome 2 with this Wiki, once again your sources of information are misleading to say the least. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chimpanzee_Genome_Project#Genes_of_the_Chromosome_2_fusion_site

      Atlantis... No... I'm sorry http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atlantis#Location_hypotheses

      As I've said before, run Chris, RUN!

          Dec 18 2013: Dailymail, USAToday, etc are the "scientific" evidence you are citing ?.....lol
          What about some scientific papers instead ?
