Some interesting concepts and arguments, but I would like to hear what you guys think first.

Yes I saw this on TED, I listened up to the bit about the segregation of men and women in the fast food chains then I didn't like the way he was speaking

Done is better than perfect.

I think the core topic of his speech is a good one but the way it was presented could have been better. He could have chosen better examples.

We often confuse culture for religion just because we were brought up to obey the rules of Islam but also to follow the dos and doníts of our culture. Simultaneously following religion and culture since birth, it can only be expected for one to have difficulty differentiating between both.
