First error at 0:21 "Of all the tools we have INVENTED..."

Humans did not invent words. I know that God spoke the universe into existence. Our words have power way beyond our means.

I beg to disagree. Humans created words long before the idea of the One God existed. Words are what allowed Humans to create God in the first place as God is a human construct. The God construct is the foundation of the idea that Humans are somehow special when in fact We are just as much a part of the family of mammalians as polar bears, elephants, camels, and all the rest. I believe that this idea of specialness, this arrogance is what is destroying this planet.

Words are special. Words allow the creation of things of great beauty. They also allow the creation of things of great horror and destruction. The problem arises in knowing how to differentiate.
